Delivery, Sleep Trial & Returns

Sleep Country uses its own shipping services across most of Canada. However, the company uses Sleep Country Canada to deliver Bloom mattresses to the northern territories, Newfoundland and Labrador, and some remote areas. You should get your order within 3–5 business days.

Bloom River arrives in a cardboard box. After removing the two layers of plastic wrap, we found that Bloom River takes a couple of hours to expand to its full 7″ height.

You have a 100-night sleep trial to decide if you want to keep your Bloom River. This is an average sleep trial length. However, if you return your Bloom mattress, you must pay a $65 exchange fee and will only receive in-store credit—no refund. So if you return Bloom River, you’ll likely end up paying even more to exchange it for a different mattress.

The mattress comes with a 5-year warranty. This is the only Bloom mattress to come with such a short warranty, which can raise concerns about product quality. Sleep Country has also received a significant number of customer complaints on Better Business Bureau and Trustpilot related to filing warranty claims.

Competing brands like Juno offer a 120-night trial. If you return your Juno within the trial period, you’ll get a free mattress pickup with a full refund. Juno also backs their product with a 15-year warranty.

The Bloom River mattress measures 7″ tall and has 3 layers of foam.

  • Layer 1: Bloom River’s comfort layer is 0.75″ of gel memory foam. This layer is designed to provide immediate comfort when you lie down and keep you cool throughout the night.
  • Layer 2: The mattress’s transition layer is 2.5″ of convoluted foam. While this layer looks like an egg carton, its job is to create air channels that allow warm air to escape.
  • Layer 3: The third and final layer of Bloom River is 3.75″ of support base foam. Infused with bamboo charcoal to help manage odours, this thin base layer creates the mattress’s structure.

Sleep Country states that the top cover is machine washable, but doesn’t disclose the materials in the mattress cover. When removing the mattress cover, we came across a protective layer that resembled a fire sock. And when we cut open the sock to reach the inner foam layers, particles from the sock landed on the floor and shattered.

The presence of shattered fragments from fabric may be indicative of fibreglass, which can be harmful to the eyes and skin. However, we couldn’t find a label within the mattress that describes what materials are used in the fire sock. To be on the safe side, we don’t recommend removing the mattress cover.

Mattress Performance Results

5.7 /10

Edge Support

Foam isn’t a strong material, so this type of mattress tends to have low edge support. Bloom River earned an edge support score of 5.7/10. This is average for a foam mattress.

You should be able to sit comfortably on the edge of the bed, but this mattress may not be the right fit if you need extra edge support.


6.8 /10

Motion Isolation

Foam mattresses are known for their above-average motion isolation. Bloom River earned a motion isolation score of 6.8/10, which is on par with other foam mattresses. You can expect to feel a small amount of movement from the other side of the bed.


3.3 /10

Bounce

Since foam mattresses typically provide good motion isolation, they tend to have lower bounce ratings. Bloom River scored a 3.3/10 for bounce—an average score for an all-foam mattress.

Looking for a foam mattress with even less bounce? Juno scored 2.5/10 for bounce, which means a more restful night’s sleep.


Company Background

2018

Brampton, ON, Canada

Public (TSX: ZZZ)

“A+” (unaccredited)

“Poor”

Bloom was established in 2018 and is owned by publicly traded company Sleep Country. Founded in 1994 in Vancouver, BC, Sleep Country now has hundreds of brick-and-mortar stores across Canada. The company sells a variety of sleep products, including mattresses, pillows, bedding, and furniture.

Sleep Country claims a commitment to providing Canadians with a better night’s sleep that’s unparalleled in the industry. However, online reviews don’t seem to agree. The company has a substandard reputation among consumer trust agencies: an “A+” (unaccredited) rating on Better Business Bureau with a star rating of 1.22/5, and a “Poor” on Trustpilot with over 50% of reviews being one star. Common complaints from customers include product issues and difficulty with warranty claims.

Should You Buy Bloom River?

While Bloom River is an affordable mattress, consider a Canadian-made value mattress like Juno instead.

Juno offers a 120-night sleep trial with a hassle-free return policy, as well as a 15-year warranty. Juno is priced at just $499 for a queen size. Bloom River also costs $499 but offers far fewer features for the price.

Juno provides a perfect balance of cushioning and support in one firmness option. It offers extra cooling with its breathable, open-cell gel foam. You can also get a free bedding bundle and up to 50% off certain accessories with your Juno mattress purchase.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Bloom mattress cover machine washable?

Sleep Country states on their website that the Bloom mattress cover is machine washable. However, when removing the mattress cover, we came across a protective layer that resembled a fire sock. And when we cut open the sock to reach the inner foam layers, particles from the sock landed on the floor and shattered.

The presence of shattered fragments from fabric may be indicative of fibreglass, which can be harmful to the eyes and skin. We couldn’t find a label within the mattress that describes what materials are used in the fire sock. To be on the safe side, we don’t recommend removing the mattress cover.

What does the Bloom warranty cover?

The 5-year Bloom River mattress warranty covers any defects from the manufacturing process. It’s not entirely clear what this includes. Most mattress warranty information on the Sleep Country website is related to innerspring mattresses. It’s also important to note that the Bloom River warranty is much shorter than any other Bloom warranty.

Where is the Bloom River mattress made?

Bloom mattresses are made in countries like Spain, China, and Canada. None of these locations are publicly disclosed—they’re only visible on the law labels of the mattresses we purchased for testing purposes. The Bloom River mattress we purchased was made primarily in Spain.

How much does the Bloom River mattress cost?

Bloom River pricing ranges from $399 to $699, depending on the size you choose. A queen-size Bloom River is available for $499.

Is the Bloom River mattress good?

Bloom River is positioned as a value foam mattress. This makes it ideal if you’re mattress shopping on a budget. However, you won’t get extras like a 120-night sleep trial, free return pickup with full refund, and 15-year warranty. If these features are important to you, consider a brand like Juno instead.

What Bloom mattress alternatives should I consider?

Juno is a good Canadian-made Bloom mattress alternative. This medium-firm, all-foam mattress is ideal for all sleep styles. It costs just $499 for a queen size. For that price, you also get a 120-night sleep trial, free return pickup with full refund, and 15-year warranty.
