Before we get into the Brook and Wilde mattress review. It is clear to see that the “bed in a box” market becomes more and more saturated, it is always a pleasure to see a company that brings something different to the bedroom. The Brook and Wilde Lux mattress is definitely an option for those who enjoy the finer things in life.
In this Brook and Wilde mattress review, we will talk about all the features the mattress has to offer and if it’s worth a buy (SUMMARY AT THE END).
Brook and Wilde Mattress Construction
The Brook and Wilde Lux mattress
The cover and the mattress are made here in the UK, Derby to be specific.
If you find this layer construction to be highly sophisticated, you should really head on to our Brook and Wilde Elite mattress review after this review. The Elite is their ultimate and top of the line in their luxury offerings.
Brook and Wilde Cover
The cover which is a mix of polyester and cotton is divided in two by a sleek orange stripe running along the midsection of the mattress. This neatly brings the top white section and the lower navy section together. The cover is designed in such a way to be soft, breathable yet also durable.
Brook and Wilde have included 4 mattress handles for practicality, this is always great to see as very few brands offer handles for manoeuvring. The cover is also hypoallergenic, which is great for those prone to allergies, however, the cover is not machine washable so the good old damp cloth will have to be used to get rid of any spillages.
From our experience, dabbing with lukewarm water and a cleaning solution does the trick.
Brook and Wilde Mattress Layers
1. Top Memory Foam Layer
The Visco-elastic properties of memory foam allow for it to contour and mould to the shape of your body. Another great reason to have memory foam close to your body is the fact that its slow responsiveness dampens any motion transference which could be coming from your partners’ side.
2. Mini Pocket Spring Layer
2000 mini pocket springs placed just beneath the memory foam layer are engineered to aid with needed pressure relief as well as act as a transition layer.
Many standard hybrid mattresses only use this as their spring/support layer in their mattresses, whereas Brook and Wilde use this layer and a second spring layer which you will read about in the 4th layer.
3. Memory Foam Layer
The second memory foam layer is denser and takes the shape of a wave to provide more support to the shoulder areas as well as to allow for optimal spinal alignment.
4. Full Pocket Spring Layer
This is the support layer which gives you needed support. These full-sized springs are individually wrapped which allow for them to move independently. This layer gives you the push back you need and minimises edge collapse.
5. Base Polyurethane Layer
Polyurethane is the industry standard as a base layer. It is great as a foundation layer because of its dense form and also keeps the mattress together.
How Thick Is the Brook and Wilde Mattress?
The total mattress thickness is 28cm, this is 3cm thicker than the average mattress but your bed sheets will still work fine with the Brook and Wilde and the mattress will hold up to 18 stone or 114kg per person
Brook and Wilde Mattress Firmness
This is what sets the Brook and Wilde mattress apart from the other mattresses, they don’t offer a “one size fits all” mattress but rather offer their mattresses in 3 degrees of firmness. Soft, medium and firm. According to our Brook and Wilde mattress review, the firmness ranges from 4-7 out of 10.
Depending on your preference, of course, we would recommend the appropriate firmness. If you are struggling to find the right mattress for you, then take note of your sleeping position as side sleepers usually need a soft to medium feeling mattress whereas back and stomach sleepers could do with a medium to firm mattress.
If you are not satisfied with the firmness of your mattress, Brook and Wilde will exchange the whole mattress (please do confirm with Brook + Wilde beforehand as this may change), and the exchanged mattress gets donated to the British Heart Foundation.
The look the Brook and Wilde mattress has is one of our favourites, it clearly looks like a quality mattress thanks to its unique design pattern on the white upper section. However, it is very likely you will place a cover over, at least you can rest assured you have a good looking mattress beneath you.
Brook and Wilde Trial Period and Warranty
Just like the other mattress brands out there, Brook and Wilde offer a 100-night trial. This means you can try the mattress in the comfort of your own home. It will be delivered at no cost to you, they can even take away your old mattress and recycle it which comes at a small fee of around £25. Brook and Wilde have created a perfect equilibrium between luxury and practicality.
If you are not totally satisfied with your mattress you can either request a pickup and get a full refund or request another firmness to be sent to you (again, please check this is still available).
The Brook and Wilde mattress also comes with a 10-year guarantee, this is standard in the industry but still shows the confidence they have in their mattress.
Brook and Wilde really stand out when it comes to service compared to our other mattress reviews. Service goes a long way these days as it not only shows you are appreciated but your request get solved quicker.
Mattress Delivery & Box
In this area Brook and Wilde truly shine. The mattress is vacuum
The mattress is delivered using a two-man service that will bring the mattress to your room of choice, this is not common and is a great option for those who may need help getting the mattress upstairs. As previously described they can also take your old mattress as they leave and recycle it for you.
Once you have chosen your mattress, at the checkout page you can choose a PREMIUM 2 man delivery to your room of choice at no extra cost. The day before delivery you will receive a 2-hour delivery window. On the day of delivery, the driver will pre-call you to give a heads up 30 minutes before they arrive. That way you will never miss the delivery.
