I'm new to this forum and finding it quite informative. Looking at latex mattresses from Brooklyn Bedding. Has anyone purchased from them and would you care to share your opinion? Thanks.

I bought the 14" Aloe Alexis - but it just arrived today. It seems fantastic for the few minutes I tried it but maybe I can give you more detail after a few days.
I will tell you this: Their reps are really knowledgeable, helpful and did not try to push me in any direction. The did apply the 5% discount when I mentioned this website, gave me two free pillows and shipping was Free (Very fast too).

More later...

Some Rambling thoughts about the Aloe Alexis (level 3 firmness) mattress and shredded Latex pillows:
- Night one was good. I slept soundly on my back and on my side. I woke up without the typical shoulder aches (from side sleeping). I expect I will have less pain day by day.
- I am sure this was the correct decision to purchase from BB and to choose level 3.
- I like the Latex pillows; although, there was an odor. It has mostly dissipated in the last 12 hours. I did not smell the mattress at all and I am happy about that...
- I have experience with very firm Memory foam as well (from visiting my Parents): I will say Latex is a very different feel (cooler, more bounce or rapid response...less toxic maybe). Memory foam has one advantage I've noticed (you are not disturbed when your wife moves or shifts). The downside to Memory foam is heat buildup. If you choose a very firm Memory foam it won't give much of a sinking feeling like the softer stuff but you may have to turn the temp down a little lower to account for the heat.
- All in all I am very happy with what I bought and I believe The Mattress Underground deserves a shout-out for helping me find this Mattress.
- Knowing this review is after only one night I will reiterate that it is more of a "how I feel about it at this moment" than a true review. If anything should change (Good or Bad) I will report that as well.

Final day one thought: "I love it and would do it again"

My Brooklyn Bedding experience averaged fine. See my post here

Summary is:
  • Mattress is great; wife has never slept better.
  • The wrong pillows were shipped. I'm not interested in paying return shipping, so I never contacted them.
  • The mattress measures 1-2 inches narrow and short. Wouldn't be an issue except we have an actual bed (head and foot boards) and the gap difference is noticable.
  • Based on the wife's sleep, the value is there, but buying local would get you the ability to return it (you can't rebox a mattress that was machine-squeezed for shipping) and two strong men to put it in place and haul the old one away. Don't sell that service short.

Hi SeattleTony,

Just to clarify ... their "Cool" series have a free return policy that doesn't require you to re-compress it for return.

For their mattresses that offer a layer exchange ... the individual layers are only returned after you receive the new one and they are also simple to package and return.

Hi wc,

Hopefully some of the members that have purchased it and see your post will comment but you can see at least one member's more detailed comments in this thread .

A forum search on "total latex" will also bring up more comments about it as well (although you may have to search each page of search results for the actual phrase (using the find function of your browser) because the search will bring up any post with the two words in it in any order).
