The Mattress Nerd’s Take: The Brooklyn Sedona mattress is a hybrid mattress with a medium firmness level, perfect for side sleepers and back sleepers who like a contouring feel. While it’s a bit more expensive than some folks may want to pay for a mattress with foam and coils, the bed incorporates cooling measures to keep hot sleepers happy. Our team also found that the bed earns top marks in motion isolation for a hybrid mattress: perfect for couples who move around a lot during the night.
|Body Type:||BACK SLEEPERS||STOMACH SLEEPERS||SIDE SLEEPERS|
|Lightweight (< 130 lbs):||5||3||4|
|Average weight (130 – 230 lbs):||5||2||5|
|Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):||4||2||3|
1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent
The best mattresses for back sleepers incorporate a mixture of spinal support and softness, so that the natural “S” curve of the spine can stay aligned without the sleeper feeling pressed against a too-firm sleep surface. The supportive innerspring coils in the Brooklyn Sedona offer enough support for lightweight and average-weight back sleepers to feel properly aligned and comfortable. Some heavyweight back sleepers might find that the Sedona works perfectly for them, but others in this category may feel that their hips sink too deeply into the top comfort layers of the mattress.
Stomach sleepers will probably not enjoy the feel of the Brooklyn Sedona as much as back and side sleepers. Why? Mattresses that work best for stomach sleepers tend to be on the firmer side of the firmness scale, so as to keep the hips aligned atop the mattress. In stomach sleepers, hip sinkage can cause back pain as the spine gets pulled, or “bows,” out of alignment. Lightweight, average-weight and heavyweight stomach sleepers should look for a more supportive mattress, like the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid or the Brooklyn Spartan Hybrid and more on our list on the best mattress for stomach sleepers.
The Brooklyn Sedona will work well for side sleepers who still enjoy the supportive feeling of coils in the support core of their bed. The best mattresses for side sleepers are softer and don’t allow for too much pressure on sensitive joints like the hips and shoulders, and the Sedona fits the bill. Lightweight and average-weight side sleepers will be more likely to find relief on the Sedona, because their hips should sink into the mattress enough to keep the spine in lateral alignment. Still, some heavyweight side sleepers (especially those who prefer an extremely soft feel) could enjoy the Sedona as well.
Combination sleepers, or those who move around often in their sleep, need a mattress that allows them to switch positions freely without feeling too encumbered or “trapped.” The Brooklyn Sedona affords combination sleepers a responsive, yet soft feel. Lightweight, average-weight and heavyweight combination sleepers will all feel like they’re sleeping “on” rather than “in” their mattress. Still, the bed might not be ideal for any combination sleeper who spends a large amount of time sleeping on their stomach. Like its name suggests, the Plank mattress by Brooklyn Bedding ranks high among our best mattresses for combination sleepers.
Typically, soft mattresses like the Brooklyn Sedona tend to be lacking in the “responsiveness” department. However, the Sedona is able to straddle the line perfectly between bounce and cradling comfort. Sleepers won’t feel bogged down in the soft comfort layers, thanks to the Ascension X coils in the support layer of the mattress.
Here at Mattress Nerd, we rate mattress firmness on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest mattress you can imagine and 10 being the firmest. The Brooklyn Sedona earned a 5.5 out of 10 on our firmness scale, meaning it’s a tad softer than the typical bed-in-a-box mattress. The softness in the top layer helps cradle pressure points, and the collection of foam layers is great for side sleepers and back sleepers. Still, some heavier stomach sleepers won’t feel enough of the supportive coil system to remain comfortable on the mattress.
There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night sweating. While hot sleepers tend to feel even hotter on some memory foam mattresses, the hybrid construction of the Brooklyn Sedona helps cut down on heat buildup with its breathable pocketed coils. The advanced cooling fabric used in the mattress cover also feels cool to the touch, which is perfect for naturally hot sleepers with an abundance of body heat.

If you sleep with a partner, you may want a mattress that cuts down on motion isolation. This is the mattress’s ability to keep movement from transferring to the other side of the mattress and awakening a sleep partner. Even with the 8” layer of bouncy coils at the base, the soft slow-response foams in the Sedona are great for cutting down on motion transfer—just like its sister mattress, the Aurora, which earned a top spot in our best mattresses for couples. Movement on one side of the bed should not move easily across the top of the mattress, keeping both sleep partners happy.
In mattress lingo, “edge support” refers to the strength of the bed around its perimeter. Though the Sedona uses a thick layer of supportive coils in the core of the bed, our team found that its edge support didn’t quite meet our expectations. We didn’t feel as if we’d fall off the bed when we rested along the edge or sat on the side, but the edge support still wasn’t ideal. The Sedona’s soft comfort and support foam might be causing this lack of edge support, so a firmer mattress might tend to lend more support. Still, the Sedona’s durable steel coils enhance the bed’s durability, so the new mattress can maintain its support throughout its entire lifespan of seven to 10 years.
Even though the Brooklyn Sedona mattress is constructed using a combination of soft foam and firm, supportive coils, the overall feel of the bed is a 5.5/10 firmness level. This firmness level will be best for back sleepers who desire a soft mattress, as well as side sleepers and those with sensitive joints who are trying to avoid a too-firm bed. For more similar mattresses, check out our list on the best mattress for back pain. The advanced cooling fabric in the cover will also appeal to hot sleepers.
Layer #1: Cover: The Brooklyn Sedona’s cover is mostly white with a thin black “honeycomb” pattern sewn into the top. When we put our hands on top of the Sedona in our mattress lab, we found the material to be cool to the touch. Brooklyn Bedding’s advanced cooling fabric should keep sleepers cool even when sheets are placed over the surface of the mattress.
Layer #2: Premium Comfort Foam: The top 1” layer of foam is both responsive and soft, meaning it can offer great pressure relief for side sleepers without making people feel “trapped” in the mattress. Those with joint pain will especially benefit from this extra inch of foam.
Layer #3: High-Density Gel Foam: Underneath the top comfort layer is a 2” layer of high-density gel foam, which helps keep hot sleepers cool with a gel infusion. Even though memory foam has developed a reputation for sleeping hot, gel infusions tend to help increase breathability and temperature neutrality.
Layer #4: Gel Memory Foam: The 1” layer of gel memory foam underneath the high-density gel foam offers even more density and responsiveness. It will feel firmer than the other layers of foam on top of it, meaning it can help sleepers avoid sinking too deeply into the mattress.
Layer #5: Transition Foam: Right above the individually wrapped coils lies a 1” layer of transition foam that protects the body from “bottoming out” or pushing right through the comfort layers to rest directly atop the coils. Most sleepers won’t directly feel this layer of foam, but it adds extra heft and height to the bed.
Layer #6: Individually Wrapped Coils: The largest section of this bed is the 8” tall layer of individually wrapped coils, which add breathability and support to the structure of the bed. The Sedona mattress’s coils will lend extra airflow and breathability for hot sleepers, and provide added support for heavier sleepers and back sleepers.

The Brooklyn Sedona comes shipped to your front door as a vacuum-packed bed-in-a-box mattress. Shipping is free to the continental U.S., but the shipping fee to Alaska and Hawaii starts at $125 per mattress. The shipping fee for Canadian orders starts at $250 per mattress.
Like many online mattresses, you might find that there will be a slight smell when the mattress is unboxed. This “off-gassing” scent should dissipate in a few hours, but it’s best to situate the new bed in a room with proper ventilation.
Brooklyn Bedding offers a 10-year warranty for the Sedona, which covers sinkage in the mattress greater than 1” deep. It also covers splitting or cracking of the foam, as long as the damage comes from normal use. Still, the warranty does not cover a different firmness level, and the mattress can change in feel after some use. As a general mattress care tip, be sure to purchase a mattress protector for the Sedona to protect against spills and stains. See our Brooklyn Bedding warranty guide for more details.

The Sedona comes with a 120-night trial so that customers can test the mattress and see if it works for them before committing. This trial period is similar to other trial periods in the mattress market, including Casper and Purple.
According to Brooklyn Bedding, the Brooklyn Aurora mattress is primarily geared toward keeping hot sleepers cool at night. While the Sedona feels cool to the touch and uses breathable individually wrapped coils, the Aurora Hybrid mattress uses a TitanCool infusion that helps keep skin temperature at a cool 88 degrees—a quality that earns it a place among our best cooling mattresses.
The Brooklyn Bedding Aurora mattress uses the same Ascension X coils as the Sedona, but the Aurora is available in three firmness levels (soft, medium and firm). This variation in firmness levels means that the Aurora can suit a variety of sleeping styles and sleep positions, from stomach sleepers to side sleepers.
While the Brooklyn Bedding Bloom and the Sedona are each hybrid mattresses made with layers of individually wrapped coils, the Bloom’s construction is specifically designed to steward the environment. Organic cotton and Joma wool are used in this eco-friendly bed.
Instead of foam, the comfort layer of the Brooklyn Bloom is primarily made of Talalay latex that is Oeko-Tex Class 1 safe. The layer of latex helps with cooling and also provides a more responsive sleep surface for combination sleepers than the Sedona.
The Brooklyn Bowery Hybrid has a proportion of foam to innerspring that some sleepers will find unbeatable. Namely, average weight stomach and back sleepers can expect a perfect blend of comfort and support thanks to the above average firmness achieved by the high-density foam and 6″ layer of pocketed coils.
However, if you’re a lightweight sleeper or a side sleeper of any size, you may want to stick with the Sedona, which allows just enough sinkage to keep a side sleeper’s shoulders and hips cushioned and the spine aligned.
Designed especially for those with larger body types, the WinkBed mattress is available in four firmness levels: “softer,” “luxury firm,” “firmer” and “plus.” The Brooklyn Sedona is a bit more expensive than the WinkBed in all but the “plus” firmness setting.
While each Brooklyn Bedding mattress is designed to hold up to 950 lbs., the Sedona certainly isn’t crafted specifically for heavyweight individuals. The Sedona will work well for heavyweight side and back sleepers because of its supportive individually wrapped coils, but it only comes in a 5.5/10 firmness level.
The Leesa Hybrid mattress is a medium-firm hybrid mattress that uses individually wrapped coils and foam to create a contouring feeling. Because of the sturdy coils, the Leesa Hybrid provides plenty of edge support, meaning it’s easy to sit or lie along the edge of the bed—unlike the Brooklyn Sedona. But like the Sedona, the Leesa Hybrid performs well with motion isolation—the mattress’s ability to stifle movement from one side of the bed to the other—making it good for couples.
Some back, side and stomach sleepers will enjoy the Leesa Hybrid, but heavyweight stomach sleepers might want to search for a slightly more supportive bed. The Leesa Hybrid is also less expensive than the Brooklyn Sedona mattress.
Athletes and people who are constantly on the move should take a look at the Bear Hybrid mattress. The Bear Hybrid uses foam and coils to create a responsive bed that works well for heavyweight sleepers and back sleepers. It also uses a Celliant fiber cover to help the body recover after intense workouts.
The Bear Hybrid mattress is a bit less expensive than the Brooklyn Sedona mattress, but it’s firmer than the Sedona at a 6/10 on the firmness scale. That means the Bear Original might not work as well for side sleepers compared to the Sedona.
Yes, the Brooklyn Bedding brand offers custom sizing. If you’re interested in custom sizing, you can email email@example.com or call (888) 210-8751. Custom sizing may incur an additional shipping fee, even though Brooklyn Bedding offers free shipping.
Yes, you should consider rotating your mattress 180 degrees every six to eight months to make sure that pressure is being distributed evenly across the mattress.
Each Brooklyn Bedding mattress includes a fire-retardant sock made of a mixture of silica, rayon, polyester and cotton.
The Brooklyn Sedona is a soft, yet durable hybrid mattress that’s great for back and side sleepers. Though the Brooklyn Sedona isn’t ideal for stomach sleepers, who tend to need a bit more bolstering from their mattress, it offers soft comfort for those with joint pain or those who struggle with conditions such as arthritis. Couples should also take a look at the Brooklyn Sedona, because it can keep motion isolation to a minimum while still offering support and cooling.
