Here I review the EcoSleep Luxe by Brooklyn Bedding.
I’m gonna run it through a series of tests to help you determine if it’s the best mattress for you.
Table of Contents
Let’s got and take a good look at the layers of the EcoSleep Luxe and how they perform, because construction is the foundation of a good mattress performance.
Starting with the sustainably sourced cover. It’s made with a combination of natural wool and organic latex, which is a natural moisture wicking and airflow agent for the bed.
Right on top we have two layers of breathable latex that are different firmness levels.
To pick your firmness, you just unzip the pillow top and put whatever firmness you want on top.
Under that is our primary support layer, pocketed coils, that add some extra bounce, durability and breathability to your mattress.
Firmness and Feel
We rate firmness on a scale of one to 10, where one is very soft, and 10 is very firm.
The EcoSleep Luxe is a 6 out of 10 on the scale, which I classify as medium firm. It works best for the average side and back sleepers.
But I also want to see how well this bed responds to your movements.
Using a lacrosse ball, as I bounce it on the floor, it comes right back up to me. Let’s try this on the mattress surface.
I’m getting a lot of great bounce on this mattress, so if you are a sleeper who tosses and turns this should be a good option for you.
A mattress will perform differently based on your primary sleep position and body type.
So think about if you spend the majority of the night on your side, back or stomach as I move through this section.
Side sleepers make up majority of the population. All they need is a mattress that keeps the pressure off of their hips and their shoulders and keeps the spine aligned.
The EcoSleep Luxe does just that for average to heavy weight side sleepers. But lightweight sleepers may have some pressure issues on this mattress.
Back sleepers can sleep well on almost any surface. All they need is the natural S curve of their spines maintained, and the EcoSleep Luxe does that for back sleepers of all body types.
Stomach sleepers need a bed firm enough to keep the hips elevated and spine aligned. This bed does that for lightweight and average weight stomach sleepers, but heavier people should find a firmer bed.
To determine pressure relief, I use put a pressure relief map, which uses heat mapping technology to indicate pressure distribution along the body.
Just note that blues and greens are good and reds, oranges and yellows are not so good.
Starting with lightweight side sleepers, I can see a lot of pressure buildup in the hips and in shoulders, so lightweight sleepers may have some pressure issues on their sides on this mattress.
Moving on to the back, I see blues and greens all around, so back sleeper should be really cozy on this bed.
Moving on to heavier sleepers on the back, I see blues and greens all around, still looking good. On the side, I see blues and greens and then a little bit of yellow in the shoulder, but that’s nothing to worry about. Average to heavyweight sleepers should be pressure free on this mattress.
If you’re a lighter sleeper, you’re going to care about your bed’s motion isolation.
Motion isolation is the bed’s ability to stifle motion at the source and keep it from transferring across the mattress and waking up your partner.
As I press my hands into the mattress mimicking the feel of tossing and turning, I can see that the liquid in a glass is shaking just a little bit.
I’m going to test this further by dropping a weighted ball into the bed to simulate someone getting in and out. As I do this, the liquid is definitely shaking a little bit more, so if you are a lighter sleeper, you may want to try a bed that has better motion isolation.
The definition of edge support is how supportive the perimeter of your bed is. It’s great for people who sleep near the edge, couples who want some space from each other, people with mobility issues and seniors.
When it comes to the EcoSleep Luxe’s edge support, it doesn’t have reinforced edges so it’s not as great as it could be, but those coils are doing a lot of the heavy lifting so it is above average.
Making decisions is hard, pros and cons lists help, so I made one for the EcoSleep Luxe.
First up, the pros.
This bed has two firmness options, so it’s going to work for multiple sleeping positions.
Next there are a ton of layers in this mattress that add breathability, which is a plus for all you hot sleepers.
Finally if you care about environment, the eco-friendly materials in this mattress are going to make you really happy.
Moving on to cons.
This is not the best bed for heavyweight combination sleepers. though it is really bouncy. it’s not as easy to move around on.
Next along the same vein, heavy stomach sleepers may want to find a firmer bed than the EcoSleep Luxe.
Lastly the edge support isn’t amazing, so if you sleep near the edge or you have some mobility issues, you may want to look for a mattress with reinforced edges.
Now that I’ve told you everything the EcoSleep Luxe by Brooklyn Bedding has to offer, I’m putting it head to head with the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Mattress.
The EcoSleep, the Signature is a hybrid mattress that arrives at your door in a box.
They both come in multiple firmness options, they both sleep cool and they both relieve pressure really well.
But the Signature works better for stomach sleepers and works better for couples because it isolates motion really well, while the EcoSleep Luxe is better for eco-conscious shoppers and is more durable.
Now I’m going to go over some quick hits regarding Brooklyn Bedding’s policy, so you know exactly what to expect when you buy.
The EcoSleep Luxe ships free and comes with a 120 night sleep trial period, meaning you can try out your mattress for up to 120 nights and decide if you want to keep it.
If you don’t, no harm, just return it for a full refund. But if you do, you get the industry standard 10 year warranty.
Here are some FASQs you ask, I answer. Let’s dive in question number one.
Does the EcoSleep Luxe smell?
Surprisingly no, that’s because it’s made with natural and organic materials rather than your traditional foams.
Is Brooklyn Bedding organic?
Brooklyn Bedding has a lot of mattresses and not all of them are natural and organic, but the EcoSleep beds are. They’re made with natural and sustainably sourced latex wool and cotton.
Is there anything i can do to prolong the life of my mattress?
Yes. While latex hybrids are some of the most durable mattresses out there, you can prolong the life of your mattress by rotating it from head to foot every few months. It’ll squeeze out a couple extra years.
