Bowery Mattress FAQs

How does the 120-night trial work?

You can try the Brooklyn Bowery in the comfort of your home for 120 nights from the day you receive it. Brooklyn Bedding does ask that you try your new mattress for at least 30 days before deciding to return so your body has time to adjust to the new materials.

If you do decide to return, simply contact Brooklyn Bedding to schedule a return and you will receive a full refund.

Can I finance my Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

Yes, you can finance your Brooklyn Bowery for as low as 0% APR through Affirm. Just select Affirm at checkout and choose the payment plan that works best for you. You can pay your monthly bill using a bank transfer, check or debit card at affirm.com.

Due to recent changes regarding consumer loans in the states of Iowa and West Virginia, financing your Bowery mattress may be unavailable in those states.

Is the Brooklyn Bowery mattress flippable?

Your Brooklyn Bowery should be rotated every 6 to 8 months but never flipped or inverted. The Bowery is designed with comfort layers on the top and support layers on the bottom. Brooklyn Bedding uses high-quality materials that will last much longer than traditional mattresses, eliminating the need to flip.

Are the materials in the Bowery certified safe?

The Brooklyn Bowery uses foam that is certified by CertiPur, meaning it is toxin-free and meets the industry’s highest health standards.

How long is the warranty for the Brooklyn Bowery?

All mattresses purchased through Brooklyn Bedding come with a full 10-year limited warranty that covers defects or body impressions measuring 1″ or more.

Brooklyn Bowery Mattress Review IRL

Meet Hannah

Hannah is a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill pursuing her master’s in Occupational Therapy. Post-undergrad Hannah needed a mattress upgrade for her new apartment. She said so long to the days of twin beds and found herself sleeping on a Brooklyn Bowery queen.

Hannah is strictly a side sleeper, though she is not partial to one or the other. Either side will do! She doesn’t have any special sleeping conditions, except for the fact her feet are always getting hot. In this season of life, Hannah is sleeping alone most nights.

Before owning the Brooklyn Bowery, Hannah was sleeping on an old twin mattress that had been passed down in her family for years.

The Buying Process

MA: Why were you in the market for a new mattress?

H: I was moving into a new apartment for graduate school and wanted to invest in a larger bed and higher quality mattress.

MA: What factors did you consider when buying a mattress?

H: I considered the size because I am single and would have to transport it by myself. I need something easy to maneuver alone! I also considered price, since I am a graduate student. Lastly, I looked into firmness because I sleep on my side. I wanted a mattress that would cradle my body, especially neck and shoulders.

MA: Did you compare any other brands? If so, what were they?

H: Purple popped up on my social media a lot so I looked into that one. I also looked at the Tuft & Needle because my brother bought it.

MA: What ultimately led you to purchase the Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

H: Price. The Brooklyn Bowery was a nice budget-friendly option. I’d say it was a mid-range price point.

MA: What was your mattress buying experience like?

H: Buying the Brooklyn Bowery mattress was incredibly easy. It just took a few clicks online and the mattress arrived within a week to our door.

After One Night...

Mattress was delivered on 6/18/2018; First interview was conducted on 6/19/2018

MA: Overall, how would you describe your first night on the Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

H: Great. The mattress was soft but supportive. I had a solid night’s sleep.

MA: Did you notice any difference in how you felt when you woke up?

H: I didn’t notice any significant difference to how I feel when I get a good night’s sleep.

MA: How does this compare to other mattresses you’ve had in the past?

H: Much, much better. The soft layer at the top of the Brooklyn Bowery really helps when it comes to comfort. Because I only sleep on my sides, often I wake up with a sore shoulder. The soft foam top layer of the BB prevented that from happening.

MA: How would you rank the Brooklyn Bowery mattress on the following factors?

On a scale from 1-5 with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.

Motion transfer (feeling little to no movement from your sleeping partner): 4
Support (body weight distributed evenly, no pains or aches): 4
Responsiveness (adjusts/responds to your body movements): 4.5
Temperature control (keeps you cool): 3

MA: How firm would you say the Brooklyn Bowery is?

H:  I would say this mattress is pretty firm. There is definitely a soft foam layer at the top, but when you sit upright in bed, you can feel the transition into the firmer base layers. I really liked that aspect. It provides great foundational support without being uncomfortable at the surface.

MA: Do you have any complaints about the Brooklyn Bowery? Or anything you would change if you could?

H: My only complaint is that the BB advertises infused cooling gel that helps air flow and cooling. Personally, I didn’t experience that. I’m usually not a hot sleeper but I felt hot when I slept on it for the first time.

MA: Do you feel like the Brooklyn Bowery mattress was worth the price you paid?

H: Yes.

MA: What is one thing you would change about this mattress if you could?

H: It doesn’t have great edge support. When you sit on the edge of the mattress you slide off.

MA: Do you think you’ll keep your Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

H: Yes.

After One Week...

Mattress was delivered on 6/18/2018; Second interview was conducted on 6/26/2018

MA: Overall, how would you describe your first week on the Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

H: Good! I am transitioning better to this new mattress than I have to others.

MA: How are you feeling when you wake up?

H: Rested. The mattress offers good support, although it is still on the firm side. I wouldn’t mind an extra layer of softer foam on the top. Just a personal preference.

MA: How would you rank the Brooklyn Bowery mattress on the following factors after sleeping on it for a week?

On a scale from 1-5 with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.

Motion transfer (feeling little to no movement from your sleeping partner): 5
Support (body weight distributed evenly, no pains or aches): 5
Responsiveness (adjusts/responds to your body movements): 4
Temperature control (keeps you cool): 3

MA: Are you still happy with the firmness of your Brooklyn Bowery?

H: As I mentioned above, the firmness definitely provides support but I wouldn’t mind a little more cushion. I sleep on my side and I think having a mattress with more cushion might help with the cricks I sometimes get in my shoulder/neck.

MA: Do you have any new complaints about the Brooklyn Bowery? Or anything you would change if you could?

H: Edge support. I would probably give edge support a 5/10. It doesn’t allow you to sit comfortably on the side of your bed without sliding off.

MA: Do you still feel like the Brooklyn Bowery mattress was worth the price you paid?

H:   I still think it’s worth the money!

MA: Do you think you’ll keep your Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

H: Definitely.

After One Month

Mattress was delivered on 6/18/2018; Third interview was conducted on 7/20/2018

MA: Overall, how would you describe your first month on the Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

H: Wonderful! Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

MA: How are you feeling when you wake up?

H: Rested. Once I fall asleep, I definitely sleep through the night. The mattress is very supportive and comforting. Makes me excited to go to sleep each night.

MA: How would you rank the Brooklyn Bowery mattress on the following factors after sleeping on it for a week?

On a scale from 1-5 with 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.

Motion transfer (feeling little to no movement from your sleeping partner): 5
Support (body weight distributed evenly, no pains or aches): 4
Responsiveness (adjusts/responds to your body movements): 4
Temperature control (keeps you cool): 3

MA: Are you still happy with the firmness of your Brooklyn Bowery?

H:  Yes, it’s on the firm side but I prefer that over a soft mattress where you sink in. Since I’m a side sleeper, I’ve been looking into different pillows to help with shoulder cramps. I’ve realized that stiffness in the shoulder isn’t always the mattresses fault. I was using a low-quality pillow which I think contributed to most of the soreness.

MA: Do you have any new complaints about the Brooklyn Bowery? Or anything you would change if you could?

H: I still feel a bit hot when sleeping, which I’ve heard can be expected with foam mattresses. The BB tries to account for that issue with their infused cooling gel in the top foam layer- but I think they still need to look into further improvements with that.

MA: Do you still feel like the Brooklyn Bowery mattress was worth the price you paid?

H:   Yes.

MA: Do you think you’ll keep your Brooklyn Bowery mattress?

H: For sure! Wouldn’t change it for the world 🙂
