Firmness Info The Brooklyn Bowery is designed to be a universal comfort level. Rated a medium 5/10 on the firmness scale. At 4.5 to 5.5 firmness rating, this matress is perfect for combination sleepers who like a softer feel. Probably not suited for back sleepers who would be better suited to the Idle Gel Foam mattress which is slightly firmer.

Mattress Construction

Materials Overview The best value bed-in-a-box on the market, the Brooklyn Bowery features trademark master craftsmanship at a modest price. 3 layers of construction:
  • 3" Energex┬Ö Foam
  • 2" Transitional Comfort Foam
  • 5" of High-Density Base Support Foam.
The Idle Gel Plush mattress is "the king of gel foam mattresses" and is a 4 layer construction:
  • Ice Fabric┬Ö Cover
  • 1" Idle Cooling Buoyancy Foam
  • Natural Fire Resistant Barrier
  • 3" Gel Infused Buoyancy Foam
  • 3" Idle Memory Foam
  • 8" Idle High Density Foam Base
  • Fireproof Cloth
  • Washable Base Cover.
Comfort Info A transitional layer of comfort foam offers a gentle transition to firmer base foam. Idle Cooling Buoyancy Foam is made without visco elastic chemicals so Idle stays cooler than memory foam with better pressure relief.
Support Info The specialized fast-response attributes of Energex™ foam offer targeted pressure point relief with enhanced motion isolation for a more restful night's sleep. Rapid Response Technology
Idle foam mattresses benefit from advanced thermal neutrality, guaranteeing your body a comfortable contoured support which rapidly returns to form when you move, meaning no more sink holes across your mattress.
Little to no motion transfer.
Comfort Specs Patented Energex™ foam is designed with an added infusion of cooling gel that helps promote airflow and cooling, while offering exceptional body contouring and comfort. Unlike normal memory foam that doesn't provide much support to where you need it most, our custom foam has greater thermal neutrality which means it goes back into shape much quicker and retains less heat.
Support Specs A high density base foam layer provides superior support in a mattress built for dynamic pressure point relief. Two layers of our custom blended Buoyancy foam with gel infusion, reacts faster than memory foam and has better support for more pressure relief, all while sleeping cooler.
At 8 inches, our bases provide superior stability for every layer. Its one reason our Idle foam gel mattresses have at least 1" extra height compared to other brands. At 2.4lb of foam core density, this is at least 30% more than the market average, making it extra durable.
Fabric Specs A proprietary and luxurious smooth top weave, exclusive to premium bedding, provides enhanced cooling and unmatched breathability. A unique replaceable cover with gel sewn into the quilted surface, and wraps our Idle buoyancy foam. You can literally feel the freshness when you touch it. Its also made of 500GSM pure cotton, which is why its able to provide such a luxurious feel.
A washable, durable and replaceable base cover to keep your mattress clean. Just unzip at the side and its ready to be removed for cleaning.
