TOPIC:

Are Brooklyn Bedding and Dreamfoam the same company? 17 May 2016 10:26 #1

A quick follow up to my post above...

I placed the order on a Friday, and got the notification that it shipped Monday. Expected delivery is Thursday, which is awesome. I can't wait to receive it.

I'm also curious about "DreamSoft" beds. I was reading the reviews for DreamSoft and BrooklynBedding beds on Amazon and someone mentioned that they are sister companies and may actually be the same mattresses.

Is this true? The BrooklynBedding mattresses all have good reviews on Amazon, but the DreamSoft beds have a number of 1 and 2 star reviews complaining about valleys after 1-2 years.

Can anyone comment on the BrooklynBedding bed after two (or more) years of use? For the price, I'm not really expecting 10 years life, but I would hope it maintains form longer than two years..

Thanks,

Karl

Hi Karln2003,

I switched your post to a new topic of its own because your questions are more related to Dreamfoam and are outside the scope of the original topic you posted in.

I think you mean Dreamfoam not "Dreamsoft".

Brooklyn Bedding and Dreamfoam are sister companies with common ownership and are both made in their new state of the art factory in Phoenix, AZ. Each of their brands are targeted to a different market.

Brooklyn Bedding makes a single "simplified choice" mattress with three different firmness choices which is the one you purchased.

Dreamfoam makes a much wider range of mattresses in a much wider range of prices including latex and latex hybrids, memory foam, polyfoam, and even a few innerspring mattresses. They are sold from their own website as well as on Amazon (and a few other online retailers as well). None of their mattresses are the same as the BestMattressEver.

Outside of the fact that they each sell completely different mattresses and that the BestMattressEver hasn't been on the market for two years yet (it was launched about a year ago) ... I would keep in mind that mattress reviews won't tell you much if anything about the durability or useful life of a mattress relative to different people or weight ranges.

The most accurate and meaningful way to assess the quality and durability of a mattress is by knowing the type and quality/density of all the materials and components inside it because a mattress is only as durable as the weakest link in the mattress and the relative durability of specific materials and components is already well known regardless of which manufacturer uses it in their mattress or how long a specific mattress or design has been available for sale. You would need to wait at least 5 years or more to be able to assess the durability of any good quality mattress based on customer feedback and even then there may not be enough long term reviews to see a meaningful pattern and the majority of reviews wouldn't be particularly reliable anyway because a mattress that would be a durable choice for some people may not be a durable choice for others (see post #13 here ) and in many cases by that time a mattress may not even be available for sale any longer anyway.

While there is no way to specifically quantify how long any mattress will last for a specific person or predict exactly when they will decide to replace it because it is no longer suitable or comfortable for them (because this is the only real measure of durability or the useful life of a mattress that really matters) and because there are too many unknowns and variables involved that are unique to each person ... if a mattress is well inside a suitable comfort/support range and isn't close to the edge of being too soft when it is new (see post #2 here ) and you have confirmed that it meets the minimum quality/durability specs that are suggested in the guidelines here then it would be reasonable to expect a useful lifetime in the range of 7 - 10 years and with higher quality and more durable materials like latex or higher density memory foam or polyfoam (in the comfort layers especially) it would likely be in the higher end of the range or even longer and the chances that you would have additional "bonus time" would be higher as well.

You can also see some more detailed comments about some of the Amazon "reviews" you are probably referring to that would also apply to any mattress with hundreds of reviews in post #20 here and in post #2 here .

You certainly made a great quality choice that would be suitable for any weight range and if your BestMattressEver is in a suitable firmness range and is a good "match" for you in terms of PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and your own Personal preferences) then you can reasonably expect it to last for many years.
