Bowery Hybrid Mattress Highlights

  • The Bowery Hybrid by Brooklyn Bedding is a budget-friendly mattress of open-cell memory foam and pocket coils that combines the targeted pressure point relief of individually encased coils with the contouring comfort of quilted gel memory foam in a hybrid mattress that’s economically priced.
  • If you want to see the Brooklyn Bowery mattress for yourself (and live in Arizona, Utah, Michigan or Minnesota) you can visit one of their showroom locations. Note: even though they have retail locations, Brooklyn Bedding still owns the manufacturing process from start to finish and sells their mattresses directly to customers.

Testing Highlights

We’ll hit the highlights of our testing, then you can dig in to some behind-the-scenes moments.

In-House Production

Did you know Brooklyn Bedding owns its manufacturing process from start to finish? That means middleman costs don’t increase the price on their products. This autonomy allows for instantaneous design adjustments, based on real customer feedback, and greater control over quality construction, materials and cost.

Great for Couples

The Bowery Hybrid mattress performed very well in the Mattress Advisor motion transfer test — it scored an 8.75. This makes the Bowery Hybrid a great option for couples! Given its affordable price tag, the Bowery Hybrid would make a great mattress for couples just starting out who may be on a strict budget.

Exceptional Pricing

Speaking of controlled costs, the Bowery Hybrid mattress is economically priced so no one has to sacrifice good sleep, which comes at a much higher price. Because Brooklyn Bedding oversees its own production process, they can bring you the comfort of gel memory foam and support of pocket coils at a competitive price of $799 for a queen.

Supports Your Spine

Spine alignment is one of our major tests we conduct since it’s so important for your mattress. Why? Because your sleeping posture matters just as much as your waking posture.

Keeping your spine aligned is key to good health and a good night’s sleep. Our sleep subject’s spines were in good alignment while on the Bowery Hybrid. We saw no major dips in their back while on the mattress.

Pressure Relieving Support

You want a mattress that evenly distributes your body weight so that you avoid waking up with pains in the pressure points like your hips and shoulders. We measure pressure relief with a pressure mapper. Check out the images of our test subjects below to see how well the Bowery Hybrid performed in this area. (Hint: Blues and greens are good; reds are bad.)

Bowery Hybrid Testing Behind the Scenes

Want a look into our testing process in the Mattress Lab for the Bowery Hybrid? Check out some of the testing moments for the Bowery Hybrid.

Setting Up the Mattress

Have you ever wondered how a huge mattress fits in such a small box? Check out our video below to see the unboxing process for a bed-in-a-box mattress.

It took us exactly one minute and twenty seconds to unbox the Bowery Hybrid mattress. This mattress was very light and easy to handle. There was only a slight off-gassing odor, but lots of plastic to cut through. The Bowery Hybrid puffed to its full size almost instantly.

The Wine Test

Performing the wine test isn’t that scary when you know you’re on a mattress with great motion isolation. Check out our wine test below to be amazed at how the glass stays standing!

Trying Out the Edge

We test every inch of the mattress – even the edge.


Customer Reviews

See what actual customers think about their Bowery Hybrid mattress.

“The best mattress I’ve ever had. I can sleep in any position. I had a thousand dollar latex mattress that did not have this comfort. In fact I would wake up every night after an hour or two and had a hard time getting back to sleep. Two weeks in with the bb mattress this has only happened once. A great mattress at a good price.” – Ted T.

“It’s been about two weeks since my wife and I decided to buy this mattress. We replaced a cheap $250 queen that lasted longer than it probably should have. The difference is night and day. The Bowery Hybrid is firm, but comfortable. I’m a back and side sleeper, and my wife is more of a side and stomach sleeper. We both feel fully supported in no matter what position we’re in. So far, we’re quite pleased with this purchase.” – Dominic C.

“I received this bed about a week ago now and I love it so far! It is supportive when I lay on my side but feels like a cloud too. I read reviews about so so so many “box mattresses” (I’m talking reviews from amazon to reddit) and this bed seemed like the best for side sleepers so I took the risk and got it. I let it expand and air out all day by the window while I was at work but taking it out of the shrink wrapping I did not notice any odd smell like some people had. For reference, I’m a 5’8 135lb woman so I cannot speak to all the varieties of body types but so far so good!” – Roxanne L.
