The Bloom Hybrid mattress is an all natural offering from Brooklyn Bedding. It comes in three different firmness options, soft, medium, and firm. For this review, I chose to review the medium feel. I found this mattress to have a nice, plush feel, even at the medium firmness. Because the comfort layer is latex instead of foam it will be easier to move around on even though you will sink in a fair amount. Because this mattress uses premium materials like Talalay latex, organic cotton and Joma wool, the price point is going to be higher but the mattress will be more durable and will have a longer lifespan. A queen size currently retails for $1,799 before discounts.
Overview of the Bloom Hybrid
The Bloom Hybrid is made in the USA out of the Brooklyn Bedding mattress factory in Arizona. This company is known for fast shipping times so don’t be surprised if you get your mattress delivered in less than 5 days. This mattress comes with a 120-night trial where you can test it out in your home to make sure its the right fit. If not, returns are free. Just a few years ago this was unheard of with a natural mattress due to the cost but competition has sort of forced them to offer it.
How Much Does the Bloom Mattress Cost?
Below are the prices of the mattress as of this writing. Typically they offer a 20% discount which is shown in the table.

Construction of the Bloom Hybrid
Below are the construction details from their site. I always like to cut open the mattress so you can see the layers up close.
- Three levels of firmness let you decide the level of support you need.
- Sustainably sourced Joma Wool™ and organic cotton are combined in a plush top cover, providing exceptional breathability and moisture wicking…naturally.
- A 3” top layer of Talalay latex delivers a unique buoyant quality that relaxes muscles and relieves tension, lifting away the pressures of the day while you sleep. Made from natural Talalay rubber, Talalay latex is certified Oeko-Tex class 1 safe.
- An 8” base of up to 1,189 individually encased Quantum™ Edge coils delivers ultimate pressure point relief while decreasing motion transfer.
- A 1” high density foam base adds durability to the mattress while reinforcing individually encased coils as they compress.
- Made in the USA
My Bloom Hybrid Findings
When reviewing hybrid latex mattresses like the Bloom it’s important to compare them to mattresses of similar construction. Compared to the Awara, the Bloom Hybrid is a considerably softer mattress. That is in part because it does not have the tufting found in the Awara. I found the Bloom hybrid to be just a little bit softer than the pillow top version of the Avocado.
Here’s a picture of how much my 14 lb. bowling ball sinks into the Bloom.
This mattress will have some motion transfer since it has springs. It will also have more bounce than a typical hybrid because it has both springs and latex.
I found that I also sank into this mattress considerably more than the Awara and Avocado. Again, due to lack of tufting and the cover is not as tightly stitched to the rest of the mattress.
My Bloom Mattress Hybrid Recommendation
This mattress is very competitively priced given the construction. What I first noticed when I received the mattress was how heavy it is. Latex is not cheap or light but it’s durable and has a very unique feel. I think they hit the mark with feel on the medium firm. If you are looking for an extra plush feel and are a dedicated side sleeper, go with the soft. If you know that you prefer to sleep more on the mattress than in it, go with the firm.
If you are sensitive to foam smells or are just looking for a more natural alternative without breaking the bank, the Bloom Hybrid is a great choice. In comparison, the Bloom all latex, this mattress is going to have a more traditional feel due to the spring system and will probably be a better fit for most.
