Here I’m going to talk about the Brooklyn Bowery mattress, an affordable good quality mattress.
As you can tell, Bowery is made by Brooklyn Bedding, which is one of the most popular brands in the online mattress space.
They actually own a whole facility in Phoenix, Arizona, where they make all of their beds and the Bowery mattress is actually one of the most affordable options by Brooklyn Bedding.
So if you’re looking for an affordable mattress keep reading because I’m going to cover everything about the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery mattress in this article.
That’s going to include the policies that it comes with, construction, what this bed is made out of, the feel of this mattress and how firm it is.
A few things for couples to consider, if you happen to share the bed, price and then at the end I’m going to try to give you a final verdict on this mattress and tell you who this bed is going to be best for and whether or not you should get it.
Without further ado, let’s talk about Bowery.

Right out of the gate it’s time to cover the policies.
What the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery mattress will come with if you do decide to order it?
It all starts with free shipping.
This mattress will show up in about a four foot box, which is about the size of a pretty decent sized bag of luggage.
Once you get the bed in your possession, you’re just gonna unbox it, roll it out onto your foundation and give it a couple minutes, hours or days to fully expand.
This is an all foam mattress and it also has a version with pocketed coils. So depending on which one you get, there will be a difference in the time you have to wait for it to get to its true firmness level.
You can sleep on the bed right away but it may feel a bit different right out of the box than if you give it a day or two to expand and get to its true firmness level.
Once you do start sleeping on it, you get a 120 night sleep trial, where you can test the bed out and decide during that period is this the bed that you want to be keeping for the next 10 years or beyond.
If you do decide that you do want to keep it, you get a 10 year warranty on the mattress, which is pretty much the industry standard.
And of course, if you don’t like it, you get completely free returns.
Just so you know, the trial period starts once the bed is in your possession.
Brooklyn Bedding does want you to keep the Bowery mattress, but if you do find it too firm, the company will usually offer a topper or something to soften up the bed. That’s something to keep in mind as well.
If you want any more information about the returns, warranties or any of the other policies, check their website.
Let’s talk about construction. What is this bed made of?
It’s important to note that there are two different versions of the Bowery mattress. There’s a hybrid with pocketed coils and then there’s an all foam.
For the purpose of this review, I’m going to be focusing mainly on the all foam, so just keep that in mind.
From the top down, the construction begins with the comfort layer.
The Bowery mattress has a three inch layer of comfort foam and this comfort layer is infused with cooling gel, which is intended to help the mattress sleep cooler, but once you have all your bedding on this bed you most likely will not notice it.
Moving on down is a two inch layer of transition comfort foam that will act as the transition layer between the top comfort layer and the bottom support foam, which for Bowery is a five inch thick slab, which will provide most of the bed support.
Like I mentioned, you can purchase the Bowery hybrid and that has six inch pocketed coils instead of that support layer and the price will be different on that bed.
I’ll talk about that a little bit later.
Enough about that, let’s talk about the firmness and feel of the mattress.
What is Bowery going to feel like and how firm will it be?
For me, I think of this as bread and butter just because I’ve tried so many beds and I know how to rank them and compare them to one another.
The all foam Bowery mattress will be right at a medium on the firmness scale. And remember the scale is subjective, so the smaller you are, you might find the bed to be actually more firm, and the bigger you are, you might find the bed to be more soft.
But it’s medium, that’s what you need to know about Bowery.
You can expect this bed to be a good option for back, stomach, side and combination sleepers. Pretty much anyone can get by on the Bowery mattress, because that medium firmness is so accommodating.
If you want a firmer bed, tailored more for back and stomach sleepers, you may want to look into the Bowery hybrid because I place that right at about a medium firm.
Moving on to feel, Bowery has a soft neutral foam feel. You’re not going to really be sinking into the bed.
You’re kind of going to be sleeping on top of it. Since there aren’t memory foam qualities in this bed, you’re not going to have to worry about having that memory foam feel.
It’s just going to have that soft neutral accommodating foam feel.
The top layers of this bed are really responsive, meaning that you can switch between different sleeping positions quite easily.
Overall Bowery is just a soft foam bed that most people will find accommodating.
If you want something that is a little more specialized be sure to check out this website.
But Bowery is just going to be a bed that works for most sleepers. This bed is not trying to offend anyone and I think most people will just find it comfortable.
Let’s talk about a couple things for couples. What do you need to know if you’re going to be sharing the mattress.
The first thing has to do with edge support and this is how sturdy the perimeter edges of the mattress are.
For Bowery, it’s average.
If you do spend up to get the hybrid version, you’re gonna see better edge support. But overall, this bed is pretty decent in the edge support department.
Moving on to motion isolation and this has to do with how well the bed handles cross mattress movement.
Bowery does limit motion transfer pretty well because it is an all foam bed, movement is kind of deadened by the bed. So if your partner is going to get up in the middle of the night, you’re probably not going to have to worry. It’s probably not going to wake you up.
Now it’s time to talk about price. What can you expect to pay for the Bowery mattress?
Before I do reveal the price, I just want to say that mattress brands have been known to mess around with prices from time to time.
But at the time of me writing this review, Bowery is going for $699 for the queen size mattress. At the time of writing this article, there was a discount, and the price was $524.
This is obviously a really affordable price point and Brooklyn Bedding has been known to run deals on top of this.
If you decide to get the hybrid Bowery, it’ll probably cost you about a hundred dollars more.
Now it’s time for my final verdict.
Who is this bed best for, who should get this bed? Should you get this bed?
Remember this is totally up to you, but I couldn’t see you going wrong with this quality bed.
If you are looking for something that is accommodating for the vast majority of sleepers and affordable, this bed sits right at a medium on the firmness scale.
And Bowery is going to be great for all sleeper types.
It has a soft neutral foam feel and again, this thing is affordable.
Plus add in all those discounts that you should be getting, you you’ll save even more money.
That’s all I have for you in this review about the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery mattress.
I’m wishing you a good night’s sleep.
