We’re Here to Help!
We love the All American story of Brooklyn Bedding. A true entrepreneur with grit, vision and a lot of help along the way, John Merwin formed what is now Brooklyn Bedding in 1995. Not in Brooklyn, NY as one might think, but in Phoenix, Arizona (he named the company after his daughter, Brooklyn). Originally a mattress liquidation business, it soon turned to building a mattress and listing it on Amazon, just to see what might happen. Well, it took off and John launched Brooklynbedding.com. A pioneer in many respects, John was one of the original visionaries of a bed-in-a-box mattress packaging and delivery system. John wanted to ensure his beds were known for high quality at a price everyone could afford. Therefore, he took the entire manufacturing process in-house. To this day, all Brooklyn Bedding mattresses are made start-to-finish in their Phoenix factory; many on the assembly team have been making mattresses by hand for decades. They have earned a reputation not only for making one of the leading mattresses in the industry, but for quick delivery, superior customer support and one of the best trial and warranties in the industry.
As a testament to Brooklyn’s commitment to quality, Brooklyn Bedding now manufactures many of the top private label mattress brands on the market. Brooklyn lists 6 models on their website, but they also manufacture brands such as Plank (extra firm) and Titan (for plus sized sleepers)Now 25 years old, Brooklyn is showing no signs of slowing down – in the last two years, Brooklyn Bedding has doubled its production capacity. They have recently completed the buildout of a new 600,000-square-foot factory in Phoenix where even more mattresses can be handcrafted, on demand, and shipped direct to customers’ doors.
Dreamfoam Hybrid Construction & Materials
Dreamfoam chose a premium quilted cover for its mattresses. This material resists impressions and remains breathable throughout the night so you sleep cool and dry. In addition, it comes with an advanced cooling panel, typically only offered with luxury mattresses, delivers cooling relief on contact.
For comfort, Dreamfoam chose a 2.5” patented layer of gel memory foam that provides optimal pressure point relief with just the right amount of responsiveness. You won’t feel that stuck-in-the-sand of dense memory foam. It fills back in the impressions quickly as you move about.
The Hybrid’s support system employs up to 961 individually encased 6” steel Ascension coils directly underneath the comfort layer. Dreamfoam individually wraps each coil to mitigate any motion transfer within the mattress. This combination allows for plenty of reactivity and motion isolation, minimizing sleep disturbance. Additionally, Dreamfoam reinforces the edge with higher caliber perimeter coils to create greater edge support along the sides, head and foot of the bed. The result? A solid support system that will last for years to come.
Bottom Support Layer
Underneath the Ascension coils, Dreamfoam lays 1″ of highly responsive foam to add further compression support to the mattress and absorb any additional motion.
Tufting is the process where the individual parts of the mattress are either sewn or glued together to prevent slippage. In the Hybrid’s case, they chose top tufting, where the cover is sewn into the gel foam layer. Tufting helps keep everything nice and together. This is just another example of the little details Dreamfaom takes care of so you can rest easy.
Does the Hybrid Sleep Cool?
YES! We found Dreamfoam Hybrid to offer a neutral to cool temperature control. Being cool at night is all about being dry. The Hybrid accomplishes the cool factor through a 3 step process:
- The cover wicks away moisture
- The gel infused memory foam comfort layer pulls heat from the body (and doesn’t return it!)
- As the mattress is a hybrid, air flows and circulates in-between the coil system
Final result – Dreamfoam will keep you cool and dry throughout the night allowing your body to get the rest it deserves.
How about Edge Support?
Dreamfoam reinforces the Hybrid support system with higher caliber Ascension springs around the perimeter of the mattress. The result improves the edge support and ensures a somewhat “sag free” experience. This edge support increases the sleeping area so, for example, if one partner is a bed hog, the other partner can rest soundly on the edge. If you are looking for greater edge support, check out the Brooklyn Signature, also at a great budget, but the 8″ coils offer greater edge support.
Endurance Testing – Will the Hybrid Stand the Test of Time?
The Dreamfoam Hybrid is one of the best quality mattresses in this budget range. Dreamfoam spends a tremendous amount of time stress testing the materials to get the most out of the springs and foam. The result? A long lasting bed that can support up to 950 lbs.
Dreamfoam Hybrid Comfort & Feel
Dreamfoam Hybrid – Universally Loved Medium
The Dreamfoam Hybrid is built for utility and quality at a budget friendly price. That said, Dreamfoam didn’t skimp on some of the luxury details.
Dreamfoam provides a traditional medium feel. From the moment you lay down on the Hybrid, you feel a cooling sensation from the phase change material cover. This is a major upgrade over traditional budget friendly mattresses. Next, the patented gel foam envelops and contours to your body ever so slightly. You still sleep more “on” the mattress than “in’ the mattress. Quickly, you begin to feel the support from the Ascension pocketed coils as it aligns the spine and gives you enough resistance to push back to fill the spaces in-between your body and the mattress.
The Dreamfoam Hybrid is a multisleeper, meaning it supports side, back and stomach sleepers alike. Although side and combination sleepers will feel the most comfort. Exclusive back and stomach sleepers may enjoy on of the firmer Dreamfoam selections such as the XXXXXXX or XXXXXXX.
Side sleepers get the best of both worlds as the Hybrid offers the most pressure and spinal alignment due to the sinking of the hip and shoulder regions. Because the bed envelops you more, some think that might make the bed sleep warmer or even hotter. This is not the case with Dreamfoam. The cooling gel combined with the air flow design and the cover keep you cool to temperature neutral all evening long.
The sweet spot for weight is up to 200 lbs (especially for side sleepers). Above that weight, you’ll start to lose the benefit of the pressure relief from the gel as your body rests more on the springs. At that size, you might consider the Brooklyn Signature model as the comfort layer provides additional support and comfort relief.
- On Sandman’s Firmness Scale, we rate Dreamfoam Hybrid a 5 out of 10.
- While it’s a multi-sleeper, side and combination sleepers will feel the most comfort.
- Even though you sink a little into the comfort layer, the airflow design and advanced cooling technology will keep you cool and dry all night long.
- Edge support is okay.
The Dreamfoam Hybrid offers decent motion isolation. Simply put, you will rarely feel your partner move at night. Whether they are a toss and turner, an early riser or using the facilities, it’s not the bed that will wake you. The gel foam, by its very nature. does not transfer motion. It absorbs energy. Any motion might come from the springs below, but the pocket coil system separates the springs further isolating any motion transfer. However, to counter the additional motion possibility, Dreamfoam uses a dense base foam extra absorption, mitigating motion transfer as much as possible. If you need total motion isolation, then look more towards the all foam mattresses. However, the design and attention to detail get Dreamfoam close to no motion.
How does the Dreamfoam Hybrid Mattress Arrive?
All Dreamfoam Hybrids by Brooklyn Bedding come in a box. It’s crazy to think that a king size model with powerful springs and dense foams can be compressed, but it can. And, with no sacrifice to quality and durability. Some people ask if compressing the springs will hurt their integrity. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Springs are actually shipped compressed all over the world (to save space). The springs integrity is damaged if pulled excessively or bent out of position. But, the way Dreamfoam compresses its mattresses, they keep their shape and strength. The box arrives via Fedex from their Phoenix, AZ factory. Simply unbox the mattress. Rest it on the bed frame, remove the plastic wrapping and the bed will decompress before your eyes. You can begin sleeping on the bed and enjoying a restful night sleep that same day.
What’s the Return Policy and Warranty?
Brooklyn offers a 120 night trial period. You can either return it for a 100% refund, or you can adjust the comfort level with a free mattress topper during the trial period. You may also exchange it for a different mattress and pay/refund any price difference. Here’s how the system works:
- The trial begins when you RECEIVE the mattress (the Fedex delivery day).
- You can sleep on it for 120 nights. As there can be a slight break-in period, Brooklyn asks that you not initiate a return during the first 30 days.
- If it’s not the mattress of your dreams, reach out Brooklyn at [email protected], via phone, email or chat (on their website), provide your name and order number and let them know if you wish to RETURN or EXCHANGE. Either way, there are no questions asked!
- Returns: In most cases, Brooklyn will request that you have the mattress donated. Many of the charity foundations that are available offer a local pickup service. In the event that you are having trouble getting this coordinated, please let Brooklyn know and they will offer additional assistance. Once donated, you will receive a full refund. If you are having trouble, reach out to Brooklyn and they will be happy to assist.
- Full 100% refunds (no fees!!) are issued within 3-4 business days of the pick-up.
- Exchanges: For an exchange, Brooklyn will send the new mattress to your home BEFORE the old one is removed so you’ll never be without a bed to sleep on.
Brooklyn doesn’t stop there! After the trial period ends, Brooklyn offers a 10 year manufacturer warranty.
