Brooklyn bedding hybrid / all latex 28 Aug 2017 13:06 #1

Hi all, tried to do some searching but haven't found any definitive info. I'm fortunate enough to live in Phoenix and last Sunday did some matress shopping looking to compare tuft and needle vs the Brooklyn bedding #bestmatressever. To make a long story short, we weren't blown away by either the tuft and needle or the Brooklyn bedding best matress ever for comfort. While they both felt supportive they did not feel great during short in store testing. Additionally, the "soft" of the BB BME felt closest to what might be acceptable.

Anyway, at the Brooklyn bedding store we we're quickly steered away from the BME mattresses and to look at the all latex liberty plush eurotop for 2k and a "hybrid" pocketed coil / foam / latex matress with a plush top for closer to 1500. Both felt great and we're immediately comfortable but I have some concerns and questions if anyone has knowledge on these matresses, especially the "hybrid".

Both my and my GF are side sleepers. She is close to 200lbs while I'm closer to 300. I want to make sure I'm not making a terrible decision as I'm narrowing in on the hybrid plush top as it's in my budget.

Additionally, since there isn't much information on the hybrid plush top they make I'd like to see if anyone has any more info and to ensure it's has no weak links / flaws especially for a larger guy like me. I know the company has an excellent reputation but it's hard to find much info on this model and it's materials.

Last but not least, since the all latex or the hybrid arnt sold online as far as I can tell I'm concerned about pricing transparency and overpaying. I would like to know what others have paid if possible for either the all latex plush eurotop liberty or the hybrid with latex. We're being quoted I believe 1399 or a king size hybrid model with some pillows included.

Thanks again and sorry if this information is already somewhere on the forum.

Brooklyn bedding hybrid / all latex 28 Aug 2017 14:33 #2

Hi Djmesh,

Welcome to the Mattress Forum! :)

Anyway, at the Brooklyn bedding store we we're quickly steered away from the BME mattresses and to look at the all latex liberty plush eurotop for 2k and a "hybrid" pocketed coil / foam / latex matress with a plush top for closer to 1500. Both felt great and we're immediately comfortable but I have some concerns and questions if anyone has knowledge on these matresses, especially the "hybrid".


In order to evaluate a mattress and properly compare it against your other choices, you would need to find out the information listed here about the type and quality of the materials in any mattress you were considering. If you can find out the current specifications for these two mattresses and post them back here I’ll be happy to provide some commentary on them for you.

Both my and my GF are side sleepers. She is close to 200lbs while I'm closer to 300. I want to make sure I'm not making a terrible decision as I'm narrowing in on the hybrid plush top as it's in my budget.


Being in a higher BMI range, it would be important to make sure that the materials you investigate and more durable and appropriate for your needs. Post #3 here has more information and suggestions about heavier weights that is worth reading. A high BMI presents special challenges and generally requires firmer materials (in the support layers especially). This could be firmer latex or innersprings (the type of support component would be a personal preference and in the right design either could be suitable) or even a zoned construction. The same overall guidelines apply with higher weights though that PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) along with using high quality durable materials that will maintain their feel and performance for longer periods of time are the way to make the best choices. Heavier people in general will need firmer and thicker comfort layers and firmer support layers than those who are lighter and because no materials will last as long with much higher weights the quality and durability of the materials and components is even more important than normal. I wouldn't "rule out" any types of mattress and base your choices on your own personal testing.

Additionally, since there isn't much information on the hybrid plush top they make I'd like to see if anyone has any more info and to ensure it's has no weak links / flaws especially for a larger guy like me. I know the company has an excellent reputation but it's hard to find much info on this model and it's materials.


You’d want to get that information at the retail store you visited. If you’re not able to go back, I would phone them and ask for the specifications from your visit.

Last but not least, since the all latex or the hybrid arnt sold online as far as I can tell I'm concerned about pricing transparency and overpaying. I would like to know what others have paid if possible for either the all latex plush eurotop liberty or the hybrid with latex. We're being quoted I believe 1399 or a king size hybrid model with some pillows included.


Without having complete specifications, again you can’t begin to make meaningful comparisons. While price is certainly important of course, the "value" of a mattress purchase is what is most important and price is just one of many factors that can affect the "value" of a mattress purchase. There isn't a "formula" that can be used to assess or "calculate" the value of a mattress because there are so many different variables and criteria involved that can affect the price of a mattress that can each be more or less important to some people and not to others who may have completely different criteria or definitions of "value". The value of a mattress purchase is also relative to how a mattress compares to the other finalists you are considering or to other mattresses that are available to you in your area (or online if you are also considering online options). There are many reasons that a mattress that may be "good value" for one person or in one area of the country may not be good value for someone else that has very different needs and preferences or that lives in a different area.

There is more about the 3 most important parts of the "value" of a mattress purchase in post #13 here 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 suitability, durability, and all the other 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).

I’ll look forward to your reply and hopefully with that information I can help provide you more accurate and detailed information that you may use to further refine your mattress shopping process.
