Comparing Construction (Materials & Quality)

Spindle Construction

This is a latex mattress that is shipped inside a box.

The circular-knit cotton cover can be removed for easier spot cleaning and construction of the bed. The cover features an inch of wool to promote natural temperature regulation. This mattress stands a total of 10 inches in height.

layers of spindle
  • The topmost layer consists of a Medium Natural Latex that is 3 inches thick. Pinholes are punched into the foam to promote airflow. This material is meant to conform to the body, promoting pressure relief.
  • The second layer repeats the upper layer with another 3 inches of Medium Natural Latex. This should offer a deeper level of bounce and pressure relief.
  • The base layer holds a Firm Natural Latex at 3 inches tall, which acts as a foundation for the upper materials.

Bloom Construction

This is a latex bed that is compressed for easy boxed shipping.

This 10-inch product features a cotton cover that contains 1.25 inches of Joma™ wool to help regulate temperature naturally.

Layers of the Bloom Hybrid bed
  • The initial layer is a 3-inch Talalay Latex designed to contour the sleeper to provide personalized pressure relief. This material is meant to offer good bounce and a fast response.
  • The foundation layer consists of a 6-inch Talalay Latex Core intended to provide a deep level of contouring to further promote pressure relief. This material is designed to be breathable to prevent overheating.

Comparing Firmness (Support & Feel)

Both of these brands offer varying comfort levels so that shoppers can find the feel that best suits their individual needs. This scale uses rankings between 1 and 10 to give shoppers an idea of each product should feel. A score closer to 1 would feel softer, 5 would be a true medium, while a score higher to 10 would feel very firm.

Spindle’s medium option is ranked at a 6 on this scale, which should feel medium or possibly medium-firm depending on the person. You can re-orient the layers, if you want, and have the Medium a slightly softer 5.5. Just follow the directions on the packaging.

The company’s softer option scores a 4. The firm and extra firm models come in at a 7.5 and 9, respectively. These can also be re-ordered for preference.

Bloom’s medium model scores a 6.5. The company offers a softer comfort level that features a true medium score of 5. The firmer model is ranked at an 8.5.

Both brands should feel somewhat similar initially, as they both feature cotton covers with temperature-regulating wool. Both should feel breathable and bouncy with quickly responding materials that reduce body impressions.

Either mattress is designed to offer proper spinal alignment and soothing compression, but those seeking extra pressure relief might be impressed by the performance of the Spindle.

Comparing Sinkage and Bounce

Shoppers should notice minimal sinkage from either bed, keeping them closer to the surface of each mattress. The Spindle offers a gentle cradle, while the Bloom, with it’s slightly thicker Euro top, offers a deeper cradle.

Both products offer moderate levels of bounce, which combines with the fast response of the foams to allow combination sleepers easier repositioning.

Comparing Motion Transfer

Being all-foam beds, both of these items are likely to reduce a large amount of motion transfer, allowing co-sleepers to rest without worrying about feeling each other’s movements. Those who require enhanced motion control might opt for the Spindle as it has slightly less bounce than Bloom, but not by much.

Comparing Edge Support

Because both of these models are all-foam, there may be some compression noticed when lying on the edges of these beds. This is normal for this type of product and should still allow most shoppers to sleep comfortably without feeling like they might roll off the edge.

We Would Recommend Buying Bloom if You are Looking for:
