Look, not everyone complains that their sleep situation is too soft, too pillowy, too dreamlike. But if that’s you, Brooklyn Bedding wants you to know that you are not alone. You exist. You matter. And now, there’s a mattress for you.
The Plank is Brooklyn Bedding’s latest release, and simply put, it’s the firmest bed you’ll find short of laying out across an actual board.
“An excessively firm mattress isn’t for everyone,” admits Brooklyn Bedding CEO John Merwin in a press release. “But that’s the advantage of owning our own factory. We can develop very personalized sleep solutions for virtually any sleep challenge. The Plank by Brooklyn Bedding is our response to customers who persistently told us they would like a sleep surface practically as hard as the floor. Every mattress on the market they had previously tried had too much give or conformability.”
Whether you’re a back, stomach, or side sleeper, if you’ve ever owned a mattress that sunk down after a few good sleeps, you know how that felt on your spine the next morning—especially if you already suffered from lower back pain. Likewise, a mattress that’s too soft all over can have the same effect.
The Plank actually gives you two options: It’s regular firm on one side—a solid mattress without too much give—and Ultra Firm on the flip side.
Brooklyn Bedding says the Plank is “the firmest, flattest, healthiest way to sleep,” touting circulatory benefits and Far East-inspired minimalism. When it comes to feeling restored after a long day, getting a good night’s sleep is all that matters. So if what you’ve got is too soft, give the Plank a try. You might find it’s just right.
