Brentwood Home Oceano 27 May 2017 21:14 #1

Hi all,

I did a forum search and didn't find any references to the Brentwood Home Oceano. I was wondering if anyone had experience with the bed? To a novice, it looks quite compelling, but can't find much in the way of verifiable reviews online. If not this mattress, looking for a plush (ish) hybrid bed. Wifey doesn't want to give up the traditional springs because she hated the "hard" feeling of my old tempurpedic.

Thanks,
anf

Hi anf,

Welcome to the Mattress Forum! :)

I did a forum search and didn't find any references to the Brentwood Home Oceano. I was wondering if anyone had experience with the bed? To a novice, it looks quite compelling, but can't find much in the way of verifiable reviews online.


This site isn’t a review site, and as such you won’t find “opinions’ on certain mattresses unless they have been specifically brought up by a forum member, in which case we will take a look at the componentry contained within the mattress itself.

While other people's comments about the knowledge and service of a particular business can certainly be very helpful ... I would always keep in mind that you are the only one that can feel what you feel on a mattress and I would be cautious about using anyone else's suggestions, experiences or reviews on a specific 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 or how suitable or how durable a mattress may be for you. 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 in terms of comfort, firmness, and PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and your own Personal preferences) may be completely unsuitable for someone else to sleep on (even if they are in a similar weight range). In other words ... reviews or other people's experiences in general won't tell you much if anything about the suitability, quality, durability, or "value" of a mattress for any particular person (see post #13 here ).

I'm not sure what you've read since you found the site but just in case you haven't read it yet ... the first place to start your research is the mattress shopping tutorial here which includes all the basic information, steps, and guidelines that can help you make the best possible choice ... and perhaps more importantly know how and why to avoid the worst ones.

Two of the most important links in the tutorial that I would especially make sure you've read are post #2 here which has 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", firmness, and PPP that can help you assess and minimize the risks of making a choice that doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for and post #13 here which has more about the most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase which can help you make more meaningful quality/value comparisons between mattresses in terms of suitability (how well you will sleep), durability (how long you will sleep well), and the overall value of a mattress compared to your other finalists based on all the parts of your personal value equation that are most important to you (including the price of course and the options you have available after a purchase if your choice doesn't turn out as well as you hoped for).

While again nobody can speak to how any specific mattress will "feel" for someone else or whether it will be a good "match" in terms of comfort, firmness, and PPP because this is too subjective and relative to different body types, sleeping positions, and individual preferences, sensitivities, and circumstances and you are the only one that can feel what you feel on a mattress ... outside of PPP (which is the most important part of "value"), the next most important part of the value of a mattress purchase is durability which is all about how long you will sleep well on a mattress. This is the part of your research that you can't see or "feel" and assessing the durability and useful life of a mattress depends on knowing the specifics of its construction and the type and quality of the materials inside it regardless of the name of the manufacturer on the label or how a mattress feels in a showroom or when it is relatively new so I would always make sure that you find out the information listed here so you can compare the quality of the materials and components to the durability guidelines here to make sure there are no lower quality materials or weak links in a mattress that would be a cause for concern relative to the durability and useful life of a mattress before making any purchase.

If you're able to find out the complete specifications of the Oceano, feel free to post them back here and I'll be happy to comment upon them for you.

Hi anf,

Thank you for posting those Brentwood Home Oceano specs. Based upon the information provided, the materials are of a good quality and there would be no cause for concern for most individuals, and a slight caution for those of a higher BMI with the 2" of 4lb of memory foam.

Hi Phoenix (and anf, if you're still checking in),

I read on another site that the Oceano might be comparable to the Temperpedic Flex Supreme Hybrid in terms of overall feel. Does this sound accurate to you based on the construction of the two? I went to the local mattress store and tried out the Flex Supreme and really didn't care for it. I also didn't like the Serta icomfort, so maybe I'm just not a memory foam person. Since the Oceano has a tufted look to it I was thinking it would be soft but without the memory foam "sink."

anf - if you're still around - did you order the Oceano?

Hi JC2323.

. I read on another site that the Oceano might be comparable to the Temperpedic Flex Supreme Hybrid in terms of overall feel. Does this sound accurate to you based on the construction of the two?


I wouldn't use or trust any "theory" as anything more than a general guideline that is subject to change based on your own unique preferences and circumstances. All the layers and materials are not the same (including the cover and any quilting materials) and the design is different for each mattress, every difference between two mattresses can either have a cumulative effect or an offsetting effect that is very difficult for even a knowledgeable and experienced online manufacturer or retailer to predict how will play out for any individual. I wouldn’t be able to assess how each of these mattresses may overall feel to you as you are the only one that can fell what you feel on the mattress. In general, nobody can speak as to how any specific mattress will "feel" for someone else, or how they compare for someone else or whether it will be a good "match" in terms of comfort, firmness, and PPP because this is too subjective and relative to different body types, sleeping positions, and individual preferences, sensitivities, and circumstances... The most effective ways to choose the feel and design of a mattress is your own careful and objective testing or a more detailed conversation on the phone with the manufacturer or retailer that has your best interest at heart where you can provide them with more information about you that can help them use "averages" and your own past experiences as a way to help you make the best choice.

Aside from the fact that you don’t seem to enjoy the feeling of the memory foam too much you can read some of my past comments about Tempur-Pedic Flex Supreme here .
