The Bottom LineBoth IKEA models have similar construction and are considered equally attractive budget choices. The Myrbacka is regarded better than Matrand in comfort, support, and temperature regulation. Like both IKEA models, the Brooklyn Bedding Bowery is a foam mattress but customers report it to be more comfortable and durable. Both IKEA models are very thin, basic sleep surfaces, both are firm and considered suitable for average back sleepers. Brooklyn Bowery has a medium firmness, making it suitable for majority sleepers of all body structures and sleep position preferences. Medium firmness also makes it the best choice for couples with different sleep preferences. The Bowery contours your curves better and relieves pressure points. If you sleep on your back,and have a strictly limited budget, IKEA Myrbacka and Matrand may do the trick for you. But, Bowery is clearly the best option for pain-free mornings, thanks to its superior conforming ability. Brooklyn Bowery offers much more value with little difference in price. Brooklyn's special offers can sometimes get to as high as 20% off, making it a clear and simple choice here.
