(i forgot i had this thread and have been replying to the bed and a box one)

So, the new BB Aurora mattress seems to be good for my lower back, but im now having issues with my upper back, specifically between my shoulder blades. Im thinking this might be pillow related? I have a 3 year old memory foam pillow, which when new was used with an innerspring mattress that had a pillow top. Had no issues then, and due to the overwhelming issues I had when i switched to a pure memory foam 2 years ago, never considered my pillow as contributing to my problems. Although in retrospect i did have the same pain between my shoulder blades then. I dont believe I had issues with my upper back as much with the previous BB signature mattresses, but if i did they were overridden by the lower back issues. So i think im going to try a couple of pillows, maybe the my pillow and one of those curved memory foams. I am a side and stomach sleeper by habit, but over the last few years have trained myself to sleep more on my back. So i've read that it can benefit you to have different types of pillows and in different places. Im going to try and avoid the stomach position, and mainly do side and back with these new pillows and see if it doesnt improve the situation.

I wanted to tag onto this topic. If this should be moved to another thread, sorry about that!

I'm curious if anyone has input on how different the Bloom Hybrid is between Brooklyn and DreamFoam. I know DreamFoam is manufactured by Brooklyn Bedding, but the Bloom Hybrid has slightly different specs between the two.

My main question is: Should coil count and thicker latex layer be a deciding factor?

We bought a Bloom Hybrid from DreamFoam (Full size) for our son. In the 6 months we have had it, my wife and I have both done "sleep overs" in his bed and been impressed with the mattress. So we are considering buying a King size for our room. When looking at Brooklyn Bedding's site, I noticed that the coil count and thickness of the latex is more than the DreamFoam version of the Bloom. I assumed it was a way to cut cost, but wanted to ask if others thought the increased stats would justify purchasing from Brooklyn instead of going with the lower cost DreamFoam.

DreamFoam - Bloom differences
- 1.5" Talalay Latex
- 6" base with 961 coils

Brooklyn - Bloom differences
- 3" Talalay Latex
- 8" base with 1,032 coils

So i'm wondering... we think the Dreamfoam is great as-is, but should we invest the extra money in the BB version for the 71 extra coils and extra 1.5" in the latex layer.

Does anyone have advice?

Evaluating the detailed differences between the DF Bloom Essential and the BB Bloom hybrids they are as you noted, as well as the latex used in the DF version being Talalay Echo (a material processed by repurposing unused fabrication cuts to deliver all the benefits of Talalay latex while reducing wastefulness) instead of standard Talalay used on the BB. You noted the difference in coil count and there's also the difference in coil height with the DF being 6" while the BB uses 8" coils.

Whether there would be a difference in feel between Talalay Echo or the conventional Talalay latex is not certain, but there would certainly be a noticeable difference between 1.5" and 3" of latex with the thicker version being more plush and conforming in feel (assuming they're the same ILD.) Then you've got the difference in spring height and count, as well as the BB using "Ascension X" springs and the DF using their standard Ascension springs. It's not clear what that difference might be but it's a designation they use to note a difference of some kind.

Given all of these differences I feel confident in saying there would be a noticeable difference in feel and possibly durability between the two versions of the Bloom Hybrid. Without being able to directly compare them it's difficult to say specifically how the complete packages differ. BB would be in the best position to explain the subjective differences and potential benefits of the more expensive offering. There is a substantial price difference and since you have experienced and find the DF version to your liking, unless they identify something you'd consider a significant benefit you might be safest going with the less expensive DF version since it's a known entity. There's no way to be certain you'd prefer the more upscale version.

Hope that helps!

Thank you! That is helpful advice. I'll give BB a call next week to see if I can get some extra info about the subtle differences (Ascension X coils). I'll report back with any extra info I find.

Thanks again TMU!
