Comparing Construction (Materials & Quality)
Bloom Hybrid Construction
This hybrid features a latex and coil construction and is compressed for easy boxed shipping.
Cotton and JOMA Wool™ make up the cushy Euro-top cover. The wool should help to regulate temperature while the Euro-top should create a plush experience. This bed is 12.5 inches tall.
- The top layer contains a 3-inch Talalay latex that is aerated to promote airflow, bounce, and pressure relief.
- The second layer consists of Quantum™ Edge coils that stand 8 inches in height. These coils are individually pocketed to help isolate movement and promote personalized compression as the springs react independently to the sleeper’s position and body shape.
- The base layer holds a 1-inch High-Density Polyfoam Base. This material is meant to further absorb motion and should promote contouring and stability.
- The perimeter is reinforced by the Quantum™ Edge coils that are meant to be sturdier than the rest of the coil system. This should promote an even, consistent feel from edge-to-edge across the bed.
Brentwood Cedar Construction
This latex and coil hybrid will be compressed and boxed when shipped.
The stretch-knit cover features certified organic cotton and temperature-regulating Summerweight New Zealand wool. To reduce the use of chemicals, hydra silica sand is used as a fire barrier. The total height of the mattress is 13 inches.
- The top layer holds a 2-inch Dunlop latex that should provide ample bounce and body-contouring. This should aid in easy repositioning and should promote pressure relief.
- The second layer features a 2-inch piece of grooved latex that should promote airflow. This layer is zoned to create enhanced compression or support as-needed for the shoulders, legs, hips, and lower back.
- The third layer helps to reduce unnatural materials in this mattress by utilizing Flaxseed to act as a transition between the comfort and support levels.
- The fourth layer consists of an 8-inch Individually Wrapped coil system. These springs should reduce motion transfer and enhance pressure relief and support by compressing or pushing back depending on the shopper’s movements and position. Enhanced coils in the lumbar region should provide solid lumbar support.
- The last layer contains a 1-inch Coconut Husk base that promotes stability and further enhances the overall natural construction of this bed.
- The perimeter should offer a stable feel for edge sleepers thanks to reinforced coils.
Comparing Firmness (Support & Feel)
In order to give you a better idea how each product should feel, we have assigned a score using our 1-10 comfort system to each bed. This system indicates that a lower score feels softer, with 1 as the softest. A higher score should feel firmer, maxing out at 10.
Bloom is available in what the company calls a soft option, though it may feel more medium to most shoppers with its score of 5. The medium version is scored as a 6.5, which should feel medium to medium-firm. The company’s firm model holds a score of 8.5, landing it squarely in the firm feel category.
The Cedar is only available in one comfort feel, which we have scored as a 6. This should feel medium to medium-firm depending on the sleeper’s preference, weight, or position type.
Either brand should work well for those who like a medium comfort option. If you are looking something slightly softer or something with quite a bit more firmness, consider Bloom for its multiple comfort options.
The Bloom product is designed to provide enhanced pressure relief by allowing the coils to compress individually under the sleeper’s weight and position. This should also promote even weight distribution and good spinal alignment.
The Cedar bed features a zoned comfort layer that is designed to give enhanced support or compression as-needed. Enhanced lumbar coils in the spring system promise good lumbar support and spine alignment.
Comparing Sinkage and Bounce
Shoppers should not sink too deeply into either brand. Instead, there should be a deeper cradle noticed in the Bloom and a more shallow, gentle cradle in the Cedar. This should allow sleepers to remain more “on” than “in” either mattress, which should enhance mobility and airflow.
Further promoting easy repositioning, the coils and springy latex inside each product should provide ample levels of bounce. This should push back toward the sleeper when they attempt to move, helping the foams to respond faster and reducing resistance against the individual’s movement.
Comparing Motion Transfer
Because both options contain coil systems and higher levels of bounce, they may also allow more motion transfer than a traditional memory foam bed. Motion should still be better contained and isolated than in a classic innerspring, however, because of the layers of latex. Overall, all but the most sensitive of sleepers should not find the levels of motion transfer in either mattress to be an issue.
Comparing Edge Support
Either mattress should perform well in regard to edge support due to the reinforced coils around the edges of each bed. There may be some compression noticed when lying down but the coils should prevent the sleeper from bottoming out. This should allow couples to spread out a little without feeling as though they might be ejected out of the bed.

Should I Buy Bloom Hybrid or Brentwood Cedar?
OK, if you’ve gotten this far you’re probably pretty sold on a hybrid mattress. (Although, if you are still looking for more picks, check out our overall top mattress options). If you are still wondering exactly which of these two products should move into your bedroom, check out our sleeper recommendations below.
We Would Recommend Buying the Bloom Hybrid if You are Looking for:
- Multiple comfort options. This company offers a versatile medium model, but softer and firmer versions are also available.
- A classic hybrid feel. Sinking into the deeper cradle of the Euro-top and latex layers should provide pressure relief and contouring. The coils should prevent any bottoming out by providing a deeper level of support.
- A more budget-friendly option. If you like to save a little on your mattress purchase, this product comes in at a couple hundred less, which might make it the choice for shoppers with budgetary restrictions.
We Would Recommend Buying the Brentwood Cedar if You are Looking for:
- Natural materials. Multiple certifications guarantee the natural materials such as wool, coconut husk, and flaxseed inside this mattress are organic and contain low, safe levels of chemicals or other additives.
- A traditional hybrid experience. The upper materials should allow some sinkage and contouring that softly cradles shoppers. The lower coils should provide plenty of bounce and support to reduce getting “stuck” in the latex.
- Zoned comfort. Zoned latex and enhanced lumbar coils should offer compression and support that works for your individual needs.
Now that you know all the similarities and differences between these two beds, you should have a good idea of which hybrid should work best for you. Both offer great bounce, a fast response time, and solid support. Multiple comfort options allow shoppers of any position preference to find their home in Bloom. Meanwhile, Cedar takes the win of those looking for natural materials and specifically zoned comfort.
