What Makes the Plank Different?

Two Options in One

The Plank is designed to give sleepers a customized sleeping experience. One side is topped with a .75” quilted top layer patterned with continuous stitching to provide an ultra-firmness. The other side is topped with a 1.5” quilted layer patterned with tack-and-jump stitching to minimize loft.

Outstanding firmness

If the typical firm mattress is never hard enough for you, you won’t be disappointed with the Plank. Designed with Brooklyn Bedding’s firmest proprietary foam, the Plank offers a supportive firmness like no other. Plus, you have options. If the firm side isn’t enough for you, just flip the Plank for an ultra-firm sleep experience.

Testing Highlights

Check out this moments from our testing to get a closer look at the Plank mattress. 

Unboxing the Mattress

The Plank mattress took us exactly a minute and a half to unbox. The mattress was not very heavy and had a mild smell (not too much chemical off-gassing). There was a lot of wrapping, but the Plank took its full shape immediately.

Measuring Motion Transfer

While our sleep subjects were testing motion transfer on the Plank they noticed they could feel there partner rolling around when they were laying on the mattress. However, the surface wasn’t too shakey. They gave the Plank ab 8 for the first part of our motion transfer test.

The Wine Test

The glass of wine held its own while on the Plank mattress. It once again scored an 8. See our video below!

Edge Support

The support from the edge of the mattress was pretty good for the Plank mattress. Our testers said they could feel the mattress gripping their body, keeping them from falling out of bed.

Pressure Relief Test

There was no trace of red on our sleep subjects pressure maps! This is further proof that firmness isn’t correlated with the support a mattress provides. Take a look at our testers pressure map results.

Spine Alignment Test

The spines of our sleep subjects were nearly straight. There was only a slight curve of the spine as it approached the base of the neck. Take a look!

Responsiveness Test

For being such a firm surface, the Plank did a good job responding to its sleepers, especially when they were on their stomachs and backs. The only other feedback they had was it didn’t cradle their shoulder as much as they would have liked.


Customer Reviews

“My husband and I have traveled to Asia a number of times, and always come home wishing we had a nice, firm mattress. We went to a few stores and laid on some and they were all waaaay to soft. After my last trip to Vietnam I decided I was fed up with our soft mattress and took a chance ordering Plank online. WE LOVE IT. Its only been about 2 weeks, but so far it is amazing. No more achy backs in the morning!!!” – Bethany O.

“I am a side and stomach sleeper. I am an overweight female. With the Plank, I no longer have shoulder, hip or back pain in the morning! The other side is supposed to be about a 7 on the firmness scale oh, so if I ever get uncomfortable with my 9 firmness, I can always switch over. It’s nice to have the option. The mattress was easy to set up. I am very glad I made this decision.” – Trubie B.

“We are from India, where we are used to sleeping on cotton mattresses that are relatively ultra firm. I have spent a lot of money on a lot of mattresses that are firm but that have box springs and they sag and really do not support the back like this one from Plank. Even though this assessment is early in my purchase, I am hoping it remains the same. It would be nice to have would be a cooling gel top and more sturdier edges of mattress.” – Hemant C.

Plank Mattress FAQs

How does the 120-day trial period work?

Brooklyn Bedding offers a generous trial period to allow you to test out if the Plank is right for you. They kindly ask that you wait at least 30 days before deciding to return your mattress as it may take some time for your body to fully adjust. If you do decide to return your Plank, contact customer service and they will assist you with the return process.

How long will it take to break in the Plank mattress?

It may take around 30 to 45 nights to fully break in your Plank mattress. This time also accounts for the time needed for your body to adjust to a new mattress.

How can I help break in my Plank mattress?

Sleeping on your mattress should be enough to break it in naturally, but there are a few methods that Brooklyn Bedding suggests to expedite the process. Carefully walk across your Plank mattress or bounce gently to help the fibers and foam aerate. It is also helpful to make sure the room your mattress is in is well ventilated for the first 24 hours to allow your mattress to fully aerate and dissipate any odors.

How long can the Plank stay in the box?

Brooklyn Bedding recommends keeping your Plank in its box for no longer than three weeks after its arrival date. Allowing your mattress to stay compressed beyond this time adds risk of slowing down the expansion time for your mattress.

What if the Plank is too firm for me?

Be aware that the Plank will often will firmer to most sleepers in the beginning of the adjustment and breaking in process. If after 30 days the Plank still feels too firm, Brooklyn Bedding offers a free topper to help your mattress feel softer without compromising on its supportive qualities. Contact Brooklyn Bedding’s customer service team for more information if this pertains to you.

How do I clean the Plank?

For spot cleaning, use a mild detergent and gently dab the cover rather than rubbing it. If you anticipate large spills or stains, you may want to invest in a mattress protector for easier washing. Brooklyn Beddings offers a special mattress encasement for this purpose.
