The importance of a good night of sleep can never be understated. In fact, other than the food you eat, the way you sleep is the single biggest determiner of your overall health. If you compare two generally healthy people, the person who gets a solid 7 or 8 hours of sleep a night will be happier and more productive.
You may be thinking to yourself, “I always get at least 7 hours of sleep a night.” That’s all well and good, but do you ever wake up with sore spots or a painful crick in your neck? Does your partner complain about you tossing and turning throughout the night? If so, then you may not be getting as much sleep as you think you are.
Every time that you toss and turn, your body is in discomfort and losing out on valuable rest time. To your body, that 7 hours of sleep that you think you’re getting feels a lot more like 5 or 6. In most cases, this is due almost entirely to the mattress that you’re sleeping on. Old mattresses can become worn down and fail to support you as they once did.
The easiest solution for this problem is to purchase a new mattress. One that is specifically designed to provide both comfort and reliable support for your particular body.
Today, we’re going to be giving you are all-inclusive Brooklyn Bedding mattress review. They make several different models, but today we’ll be focusing on their Brooklyn Signature which is their flagship model.
About Brooklyn Bedding
Brooklyn Bedding was one of the companies that pioneered the bed-in-a-box method of shopping. It’s the brainchild of two brothers, John and Rob Merwin. The two worked in a mattress warehouse in the early-90’s, and eventually decided that they were going to make their own. They began to deconstruct mattresses and learned how to create their own.
In 1995, they launched their first business venture. They had a small truck, one cell phone, and a lot of mattresses to sell. They would ride around town, selling off their mattresses to any store that would take them. In the early-2000’s, John’s wife had the brilliant idea to start selling mattresses on amazon.
This became so successful, that they made their first website and started selling mattresses without the middleman. Eventually, John took a trip to China to learna about a cutting-edge “mattress rolling” technique. He purchased his first rolling machine and began to sell compact, easy-to-ship, beds in a box.
The rest is history, and Brooklyn Bedding has grown to be one of the most well-known names in the mattress industry.
Brooklyn Bedding’s Technique
For the Brooklyn Signature, they decided to take a hybrid approach to the mattress. This ensures that you get the best features of a memory foam mattress and a traditional innerspring mattress all in one. They custom-make each and every mattress in the USA using high-quality materials backed by a full 10-year warranty.

Today, we’re going to be breaking down and giving you our complete Brooklyn Bedding mattress review. We’ll start by discussing some of design aspects and the construction. After this, we’ll break the mattress down layer-by-layer. Finally, we’ll list a couple of drawbacks that we found, and give you a handy price chart!
Keep in mind that we reviewed the medium firmness Brooklyn Signature. This is by far their best-selling comfort level and is, therefore, more relevant for the majority of our readers. If you prefer a mattress that’s a firmer or softer, you can select these options during purchase. The price remains the same no matter which comfort level that you choose.
Each layer of the Brooklyn Signature mattress was designed to work together to give you one of the best nights of sleep you’ll ever get. The key to their design is their patented Titanflex foam. This multi-density foam is used in the top two layers of the mattress. Underneath this is layer of pocketed support coils. Surrounding the mattress sides is a durable synthetic fabric which is tear-resistant. This means you won’t have to worry about your bed getting messed up every time that you go to move it.
Titanflex Comfort Level with TitaniumGel
The first layer you’ll encounter when breaking down this mattress is the Titanflex comfort layer. This is engineered with a low-density, hyper-elastic polyfoam. Its elasticity allows it to conform to every curve of your body to provide you with unparalleled support. Once you lay down on this mattress, you’ll feel like you’re being enveloped by a cacoon.
In addition to providing superior comfort, this layer also helps to isolate movement. This means that your partner laying on the other end won’t be affected by your movements. When you get out of bed at 6am every morning, they’ll remain undisturbed. You’ll also be immune to the majority of your partner’s nightly twitching and sleepwalking.
Finally, this foam layer is infused with TitaniumGel which serves two primary purposes. The first purpose is that it resists heat. It won’t conduct your body heat deeper into the mattress. Rather it will help to regulate the temperature of the mattress surface and channel heat away.
The second purpose of the TitaniumGel is for sanitary purposes. It was engineered to be antimicrobial. This prevents bacteria and germs from building up on your mattress surface over time. In turn, this prevents your mattress foam from breaking down and increases longevity.
Titanflex Support Level
Moving down past the primary comfort level lies the Titanflex support level. For this layer, they took their original Titanflex foam and made a high-density version of it. This layer helps to support your primary pressure points such as your hips and shoulders. Its high-density construction makes it reactive to whatever weight that you put on it.
Whether you’re a lightweight or your on the heavy side, the Titanflex support layer will rise to support you. The deep contouring and support will help decompress your spine and keep your back well-aligned.
The final layer of this mattress consists of a 6-inch layer of individually pocketed Ascension coils. This is where you start to feel the real advantage of a hybrid mattress. For all of the comfort and support that the Titanflex foam provides, the coils create some bounce.
The more bounce that a mattress has, the more lively it will feel. You’ll be able to roll around and shift positions with ease. You don’t have to worry about that “stuck” feeling you get with traditional memory foam mattresses.
Additionally, this layer of Ascension coils helps the mattress to maintain its frame and shape over time. They provide additional support for the foam layers and help them to be able to truly contour to your entire body.
We mentioned above that this mattress comes in three separate comfort levels; soft, medium, and firm. The medium is by far their best-selling mattress, but your options are open.
If you’re on the lighter side of the scale or you suffer from chronic back pain, you may want to consider the soft level. Conversely, if you’re on the heavier side and need more support, you should opt for the firm level of comfort.
We can safely say in our Brooklyn Bedding mattress review, that their Brooklyn Signature has superior edge support. The outer rim of this mattress will provide you with the same amount of support that the middle will. Whether you’re sleeping with a partner or putting your shoes on in the morning, you’ll be satisfied with a firm and supportive edge.
What Else to Look Out For
Brooklyn Bedding makes customer service a point. You won’t have to pay for any associated shipping for delivery costs. After you purchase your Brooklyn Signature, you’ll have 120 nights to make a final decision. If you decide that this isn’t the best choice for you, you can refund it for a full money-back guarantee.
After your 120-night trial period, you will be provided with an all-inclusive, no questions asked 10-year warranty. If the mattress starts to sink, degrade, or suffer from any other manufacturer defects, you’ll be 100% covered.
We wouldn’t be giving you an honest Brooklyn Bedding mattress review if we didn’t mention at least one drawback. Overall, this mattress exceeded our expectations in almost every way. However, we do think that they could use improvement in the following areas.
Many popular bed-in-a-box brands feature a high-tech antimicrobial, moisture wicking, cooling cover. While the Brooklyn Signature does feature TitaniumGel inside their foam, it doesn’t compare to what a high-quality cover can provide. Of course, if you wanted, you could purchase your own mattress cover. However, this is an additional expense that you may not want to incur.
Although the upper layers of Titanflex foam provide a decent level of motion dampening, they aren’t foolproof. Sure, you won’t feel your partners every movement, but if they move hard and fast enough, you will. For most people, this isn’t an issue. However, if you’re a habitually light sleeper, it is something worth considering.

Pros and Cons

Overal the Brooklyn Signature is a great mattress.

We really appreciated the fact that we could choose from three separate comfort levels and the stellar customer service that we received.
If you’re looking for a high-quality hybrid mattress that will last you for years to come, then you won’t disappointed with this one.
