Brooklyn Aurora highlights

  • The Aurora Mattress is Brooklyn Bedding’s luxury hybrid mattress. The founder, John Merwin, sleeps on this mattress himself. He says, “I design all the beds and I can honestly say that it’s the best bed I’ve ever built.”
  • The Aurora is available in 3 firmness levels to provide a personalized level of comfort and support. Brooklyn Bedding recommends choosing soft if you are a side sleeper who likes being “hugged” by your mattress, medium if you change positions often, and firm if you are a stomach or back sleeper who doesn’t like to sink deeply into your mattress.
  • This mattress is one of the coolest (temperature wise) mattresses we have ever had in the Mattress Lab. Even weeks after unboxing, it was still cool to the touch.
  • Even though Brooklyn Bedding has retail locations, they still own the manufacturing process from start to finish and sell their mattresses directly to customers.

What Makes the Brooklyn Aurora Different?

Customizable firmness

The Brooklyn Aurora mattress is offered at three firmness levels—plush, medium and firm. Customers have the option to select the firmness level that best supports the sleeping style and body type.

Superior Cooling Technology

The first layer of the Brooklyn Aurora mattress is comprised of Copper Gel Energex™ foam that’s infused with patent-pending TitanCool™ beads, a phase change molecule that regulates body temperature to keep your sleep surface at the optimal temperature for sleeping which is 88 degrees. These cooling-gel beads liquefy at higher temperatures to provide cooling relief.

What to watch out for

  • Be aware that your Brooklyn Aurora mattress may have a mild scent when you unbox it – this is normal and should go away within a few hours.
  • It may take up to 30 nights to get used to sleeping on your Brooklyn Aurora mattress – particularly if your previous mattress was a traditional innerspring mattress

Customer Reviews on the Brooklyn Aurora Mattress

My wife and I purchased this mattress to replace an aging sleep number bed. I like a medium firmness while my wife prefers her be a little more firm. The medium option from Brooklyn Bedding is quite soft. Even after reading some other reviews stating this, I was expecting the mattress to be on the soft side, but it was still softer than I was expecting. Surprisingly, it still offers excellent support and I have quickly grown to love it. My wife would prefer something a little more firm, but she is very happy with it as well. Overall we are very satisfie James
Was looking for hybrid soft mattress for mainly side sleeper with materials that allowed for cooler sleeping. Brooklyn Bedding Aurora soft hits every point and is extremely comfortable. Have been sleeping on it for a couple weeks and can honestly say this is one of the best beds I’ve ever slept on. Highly recommend. Tara
Simply stated: I love this mattress. I am one of those people who does a ton of research before making a purchase and I looked into everything from Purple, Casper, Tempurpedic, Leesa, etc., What struck me about BB was the foam/coil hybrid and the chance to not be sucked into the mattress but still keep with the benefits of foam. I had my Tempurpedic for 10 years and started sinking into it so I knew it was time to change. I almost went for another Tempurpedic but BB caught my eye with their innovative and detail oriented products. Since sleeping in this bed, I have not wanted to get out of bed in the morning! Motion transfer also does not seem to be an issue either. The plushness of the mattress is perfect and still gives enough support to make me feel comfortable. I feel like the bed is soft, but that I am still floating on top of it. The reviews and research are proving to be accurate as well. I cannot say enough good things about this bed. I am so glad I chose the BB Aurora over all of the other options out there! Jeanne
