Brooklyn Bedding Wall Street Mattress vs BestMattressEver vs Leesa 15 Aug 2015 15:42 #1

Has anyone tried the in store Brooklyn Bedding Wall Street Mattress vs the online Best Mattress ever? We like the Wall Street it is more expensive because it is a hybrid with coils. If I can save money with the BME because it has a similar feel and firmness I would love to do that.

I know you can try this mattress in Phoenix by appointment only. It is very far away from where we live though and weekdays only which is difficult.

Thanks

Hi ckole,

I switched your post to a new topic of its own with a more descriptive title so your question won't get buried in another topic that is only about the BestMattressEver.

I'm not familiar with the specifics of the Wall Street mattress but I'm guessing it is one of the mattresses that are sold at R&S mattress.

The support core of a mattress isn't generally the weakest link of the mattress in terms of durability so the choice between an innerspring (or pocket coil) vs a polyfoam support core (assuming that the polyfoam is a good quality/density material that meets the quality/durability guidelines here which it does in the case of the BestMattressEver) would also be a preference and/or a budget choice rather than a "better/worse" choice.

Polyfoam is less resilient and responsive and somewhat "stiffer" and less "springy" or "bouncy" than an innerspring but it can also make a very good support system for those that are also a little more restricted in terms of their budget or for those that prefer how it feels over other types of support materials or components. Most of the "feel" of a mattress when you first lie on it comes from the upper layers but the type and firmness level of deeper support layers will also contribute to how a mattress feels as well especially when you move or "bounce" on the mattress and the mattress is compressed more deeply. They can also have a more significant effect on how well you sleep over the course of the night and how you feel when you wake up in the morning. There is more about the different types of innersprings (which includes pocket coils) in this article and in post #10 here .

While other people's comments about the knowledge, service, and guidance of a particular business can certainly be helpful ... I would generally avoid using other people's experiences or reviews on a mattress (either positive or negative) or review sites in general as a reliable source of information or guidance about how you will feel on the same mattress, how suitable or how durable a mattress may be for you, or how two different mattresses may compare and in many if not most cases they can be more misleading than helpful because a mattress that would be a perfect choice for one person or even a larger group of people may be completely unsuitable for someone else to sleep on (see post #13 here ).

There are also no "standard" definitions or consensus of opinions for firmness ratings and different manufacturers can rate their mattresses very differently than others so a mattress that one manufacturer rates as being a specific firmness could be rated very differently by another manufacturer. Different people can also have very different perceptions of firmness and softness compared to others as well and a mattress that feels firm for one person can feel like "medium" for someone else or even "soft" for someone else (or vice versa) depending on their body type, sleeping style, physiology, their frame of reference based on what they are used to, and their individual sensitivity and perceptions. There are also different types of firmness and softness that different people may be sensitive to that can affect how they "rate" a mattress as well (see post #15 here ) so different people can also have very different opinions on how two mattresses compare in terms of firmness as well and some people may rate one mattress as being firmer than another and someone else may rate them the other way around. This is all relative and very subjective and is as much an art as a science.

There is more about the different ways to choose a suitable mattress (either locally or online) that is the best "match" for you in terms of comfort and PPP in post #2 here that can help you assess and minimize the risks of making a choice that doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for once you actually sleep on your mattress but when you can't test a mattress in person (or if you can and you are still uncertain) then the most reliable source of guidance is always a more detailed conversation with a knowledgeable and experienced retailer or manufacturer that has your best interests at heart who can help "talk you through" the specifics of their mattresses and the options they have available that may be the best "match" for you based on the information you provide them, any local testing you have done or mattresses you have slept well on and liked that they are familiar with, any special considerations you may have, and the "averages" of other customers that are similar to you. They will know more about helping you to "match" their specific mattress designs or firmness options to different body types, sleeping positions, and preferences or even to other mattresses that they are familiar with than anyone else so that in combination with your own personal testing you can make the "best possible" choice with the highest chance of success.

Yes, it is one by R&S. For us it was a very comfortable bed. Price point is between $400-$500 more than the Best Mattress ever. I am leaning towards trying the BME and if we don't like we know we like the other one. Since the BME is nearly 50% less that is attractive. You can try the BME mattress at the factory. However, it is by appointment only and only on weekdays until 3pm. That is a bit restrictive for us. Thanks for the feedback and I will certainly add a review for either bed we choose.

Hi ckole,

I'm looking forward to finding out what you end up deciding once you pull the trigger.

You certainly have some good quality/value options.

After much research and consideration we decided to go with a Leesa mattress. I will post up a review in a few weeks. If that doesn't work we will just have to decided whether to go with the BME or the more traditional Wall Street. Thanks for everything your web site offers.

Brooklyn Bedding Wall Street Mattress vs BestMattressEver vs Leesa 29 Aug 2015 15:44 #7

Our Leesa arrived on Thursday. It is too early to tell if it is the right mattress for us. Going from a spring mattress to foam is a big difference. For the first two nights we had our old box springs underneath. I know that was not recommended but its all we had. It did not support the mattress well as expected. I added some plywood between the mattress and box spring and that helped some. Now we have a proper foundation and I'm looking forward to testing the difference tonight. So I can at least confirm what Leesa says about proper support. We purchased this from Amazon, Easy Fit Box Spring Foundation by Box Spring King

It was a bit expensive but seemed to be a better option than the metal ones.

Now back to the Leesa. I look forward to getting used to it over the coming weeks and hope it will be the right fit for us. I can only compare it to is the Tuft and Needle. It is a lot less firm than the T&N. (IMHO) We didn't like that one. When you first get into the bed it seems a bit odd vs a spring mattress but you get used to it. I have slept fine and it seems like I am not rotating around as much. I'm a side sleeper. So regardless of what foam mattress you choose you should expect an adjustment from a traditional spring mattress. Hopefully I can can piece together a more detailed review at a later date.

Hi ckole,

I switched your post to your original topic and also added "Leesa" to the title so it had better continuity and the title was a better reflection of the mattresses you were considering.

Thanks for taking the time to share your initial comments and feedback about your Leesa mattress and I'm looking forward to any additional comments you have the chance to share once you've had the chance to sleep on it for a little longer.

We love our Leesa mattress and are not going to return it. It took a while to get used to being on a foam mattress vs inner spring but now we love it. I find sleeping on my back much easier as well. So to each his own but for us the Leesa has worked great.
