Bragada Mattress Reviews – The Highlights
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
Bragada may be a manufacturer that you are not familiar with but you may be surprised to know that they have been hand-making mattresses in the US since 1958. That’s over 50 years. Here we look at the online resources and some Bragada mattress reviews to summarize what the company offers and what you can expect if you are considering one of their models.
Bragada claim to have made bedding for nearly 15 million homes in the last 50 years. They back up the quality of their workmanship with a lifetime manufacturers warranty on every mattress. Their flagship products are their memory foam mattresses and their adjustable beds, which are made using CoolTempTM Visco-Elastic Memory Foam and topped off using natural materials like 100% pure cotton, bamboo, and soft silk and cashmere fabrics – available on every sleep system, memory foam mattress and mattress topper they make. Your exact choices will be made to order in their factory. Most of their mattresses are sold online, which helps to keep down costs.
Another boast that Bragada make is that their memory foam mattresses are the only memory foam models in the world to be awarded the Orthopaedic Research Institute Seal of Approval.
Looking at their memory foam mattresses, we see 10 basic models ranging in thicknesses from the 7-inch Aspen, featuring 2″ of 4.0 lb memory foam topped by a luxurious 4-way stretch fabric, to the 15-inch Vivaldi which features 6 inches of 4.5 lb dense memory foam and a quilted cashmere anti-microbial fabric.
The most basic Aspen model weighs in at about $450 for queen size mattress and you should add another $200 if you want the box spring with it and $90 for a cover. The Vivaldi, on the other hand, will be around $1500 for queen size mattress with the same additional pricing for the extras.
Bragada mattresses are set up to compete directly with Tempurpedic memory foam mattresses and other, cheaper manufacturers and they are aggressive in their stance, often talking about their “competitors’ inferior products.” They back up their quality assurances with a 121-night at-home trial of all of their memory foam mattresses except the Aspen.
On the review sites Bragada mattresses fared somewhat less favorably than you would expect, from some of their claims. They rated well for affordability and motion isolation (as most memory foam mattresses do) but were marked down consistently for premature sagging and softening (twice as often as with Tempurpedic, in fact.) Almost twice as many users also reported the mattresses causing pain than with Tempurpedic, too.
