How Does the DreamCloud Mattress Feel?

DreamCloud Mattress Firmness

We gave the DreamCloud a medium-firm rating, or 6.5/10 on our firmness scale, with  10 being the firmest possible. However, this number can change depending on your size. For example, this mattress will feel a bit firmer to lightweight sleepers—more like a 7.5 firmness. For heavyweight sleepers, it might feel more like a 5.5/10 because they’ll sink deeper in the mattress.

What Does the DreamCloud Mattress Feel Like?

The DreamCloud has a true hybrid feel—when you first lie down, you feel cushioned by the soft foam top layers. The further you sink into the mattress, the more you notice the support of the coil layer. We feel more “on top” of this mattress than hugged by it.

What Sleeping Position Is the DreamCloud Mattress Best For?

Body Type: Back Sleepers Stomach Sleepers Side Sleepers
Lightweight < 130 lbs: 5 5 2
Average-weight 130–230 lbs: 5 5 3.5
Heavyweight > 230 lbs: 5 2 4

1 = Very poor 2 = Not good 3 = Fair 4 = Good 5 = Excellent

Back Sleepers

Back sleepers have it pretty easy when looking for a mattress. All they need is to make sure that their bed maintains the natural curve of their spine. As a medium-firm mattress with a hybrid design, the DreamCloud should work for lightweight, average-weight, and heavyweight back sleepers.

To see more, check out our best mattresses for back sleepers.

Side Sleepers

Side sleepers need a mattress that maintains spinal alignment (i.e. sleeping posture) and cushions pressure points. The DreamCloud’s hybrid design works great for spinal alignment, but pressure relief may depend on your size.

Heavyweight and some average-weight side sleepers should sink deep enough into the comfort layers to experience contouring around their shoulders and hips. Lightweight side sleepers will probably not sink deep enough to get the same level pressure relief.

For more options, see our best mattresses for side sleepers.

Stomach Sleepers

More than anything else, stomach sleepers need to make sure their hips stay lifted on top of their mattress. If they sink into the mattress too much, their spine will arch out of alignment, which can lead to lower back pain. As such, stomach sleepers need a supportive, firm mattress.

For lightweight and average-weight stomach sleepers, the DreamCloud should keep the hips elevated, but heavyweight stomach sleepers will probably want a firmer mattress.

For more options, see our roundup of the best mattresses for stomach sleepers.

Combination Sleepers

If you change sleeping positions throughout the night, you’re considered a combination sleeper. These folks need a responsive mattress that keeps up with their movements and also works well for their body type and primary sleeping positions.

The DreamCloud is a very responsive mattress, thanks to its base layer of pocketed coils. That means you’ll be able to move around on the mattress without feeling like you’re sinking into a pit of quicksand.

Average-weight combination sleepers should really enjoy the DreamCloud mattressLightweight and heavyweight combination sleepers need to consider which positions they switch between. For example, the DreamCloud isn’t the best fit for lightweight side sleepers or heavyweight stomach sleepers.

To see more options, see our best mattresses for combination sleepers.

DreamCloud Mattress Performance

Is The DreamCloud Mattress Cooling?

If you’ve woken up too many nights covered in sweat, you might be a hot sleeper. To prevent overheating at night, you’ll want to find a mattress that can keep you cool.

Hybrid mattresses like the DreamCloud are great for hot sleepers because the coils allow for much more airflow in the mattress than foam. The DreamCloud adds another cooling element with gel memory foam, which doesn’t retain as much heat as other memory foams. To find more beds for hot sleepers, see our best cooling mattresses.

Edge Support

Edge support is how well the perimeter of a mattress holds up under weight. Poor edge support is noticeable if you’re on the edge of your bed and feel like you’re about to slip off.

The DreamCloud has good edge support, so you shouldn’t have issues if you like to sit or sleep along the sides of your mattress. This also means that if you share your bed, you’ll have more room to spread out over the entire mattress. And good edge support is also a great indicator of durability.

Responsiveness

This mattress has a lot of bounce, which makes it great for combination sleepers or anyone who wants to move around easily on top of their mattress. We even gave it a perfect 5/5 score for responsiveness.

Motion Isolation: Is it good for those who share a bed?

No one wants their partner’s midnight bathroom trip to disrupt their sleep. That’s why motion isolation is important for those who share their bed. The DreamCloud isolates motion well, meaning that your partner’s movements won’t transfer across the bed and wake you up.

To find more mattress options for couples, see our best mattresses for couples.

Noise

We didn’t notice much noise when moving around on the DreamCloud. It’s a pretty quiet mattress.

Pain Relief

The DreamCloud could be a good mattress for back or stomach sleepers under 230 lbs who experience lower back pain. The DreamCloud is firm and supportive enough to keep these folks’ hips lifted in alignment with their shoulders, which takes strain off of the lower back.

It’s not the best choice for those with joint pain, including side sleepers; if that’s you, look for a mattress that offers better pressure relief.

Sex

As a bouncy, breathable mattress, the DreamCloud should work well for sex. You can find more options with similar springiness and cooling properties in our best mattresses for sex roundup.

Off-Gassing

You may notice a slight odor coming from the foam layers of this mattress after removing the packaging, but it should be gone within a few hours. If you still notice an off-gassing scent after a day or two, make sure your bedroom is well-ventilated, and don’t add bed sheets until the odor is gone.

Durability

As a luxury hybrid mattress with durable coils, we estimate that the DreamCloud will last between seven and 10 years.

_wp_attachment_image_alt

Construction: What’s Inside the DreamCloud Mattress? 

The DreamCloud is a hybrid mattress, so it features a mix of memory foam and pocketed coils in its construction. Hybrid mattresses provide more support than memory foam beds, but allow for more contouring than traditional innerspring mattresses without foam.

Layer #1: “Soft-to-the-Touch” Cover

The DreamCloud’s mattress cover is soft and plush. It’s made with quilted foam and cashmere, and looks just like a cloud!

Layer #2: Pressure Relief Comfort Layer

The top layer is made with gel-infused foam, which helps to both relieve pressure and keep you cool throughout the night.

Layer #3: “Sink-in-Just-Right” Transition Layer

This layer of foam eases you from the comfort layer to the coils. Its purpose is to ensure you don’t sink into your mattress too deeply, giving you the feeling of sleeping on top of your mattress instead of in it.

Layer #4: Targeted Support Coil Layer

The support layer is made up of individually wrapped coils. These coils not only provide support and reduce motion transfer, but also allow airflow within the mattress.

Layer #5: Essential Base Layer

The base layer of foam provides support for all the other layers above.

How Much Does The DreamCloud Mattress Cost?

Mattress Size Price Dimensions Height Weight
Twin $1,273 38” x 75” 14” 50 lbs
Twin XL $1,373 38” x 80” 14” 53 lbs
Full $1,598 54” x 75” 14” 72 lbs
Queen $1,698 60” x 80” 14” 85 lbs
King $1,898 76” x 80” 14” 107 lbs
California King $1,898 72” x 84” 14” 107 lbs

How Do the Policies Measure Up?

Shipping & Unboxing

DreamCloud ships for free within the contiguous U.S., and ships to Hawaii and Alaska for a $150 charge. Their mattresses typically ship within seven to 14 business days.

If moving mattresses isn’t your thing, you can opt into DreamCloud’s white glove delivery service for an additional $149. A delivery team will set up your new mattress at your home, as well as remove your old mattress

If you decide to set up the mattress on your own, we definitely recommend enlisting a friend for help. Mattresses can be pretty heavy, and the DreamCloud is an especially large bed! Aside from the weight of the mattress, unboxing the DreamCloud mattress was a simple experience for our team. Once we got the mattress on the base, we easily cut open the plastic wrap, and it inflated in less than two minutes.

Warranty

DreamCloud offers a Lifetime warranty on all of their mattresses. That means that if your mattress becomes damaged from normal wear anytime during your ownership, the company will replace the mattress at no charge (note that you must be the original owner). DreamCloud defines “normal wear” as permanent body impressions that are 1.5+” deep.

Trial Period & Returns

When ordering a bed-in-a-box mattress online, we know you may have some reservations about buying before trying. But that’s where sleep trial periods come in! A sleep trial is a period where you can test out your mattress at home and decide to return it if you don’t like it.

DreamCloud offers one of the more generous sleep trial periods in the industry: 365 nights. That means you get a full year to test out your DreamCloud mattress in your own bedroom. And if you decide it’s not for you? DreamCloud will give you a full refund and coordinate the removal of the mattress.

Addressing DreamCloud Mattress Complaints

Luxury Price

The DreamCloud is a luxury mattress, and the price definitely reflects that. We wouldn’t recommend it for budget shoppers, although it is a great value for the price. DreamCloud also offers financing through Affirm.

Heavy & Difficult to Set Up

This mattress is very thick, and it’s pretty heavy when it arrives compressed in its box. Our team was able to successfully unbox it with two people, but it’s something to be aware of if you’re planning on setting up your own mattress or moving it from one room to another.

The DreamCloud Premier mattress is similar to the original DreamCloud mattress, but adds a few more details of luxury. The Premier features a euro top layer, making the surface of the mattress even softer. However, it still delivers on the support of the original DreamCloud mattress and is also rated medium-firm. The Premier is a little bit more expensive than the original, so definitely a splurge for those seeking a little more luxury.

The DreamCloud Premier Rest is the most expensive mattress from the DreamCloud brand. It has the same general construction as the other two, with the cashmere cover and hybrid construction, but features a few more layers of memory foam than the other two. Additionally, it has a pillow top, making it extra soft. As such, the original DreamCloud is better for stomach sleepers and those with heavyweight body types.

Nectar is a popular memory foam mattress that’s a little softer than the DreamCloud and retains more body heat. The Nectar has some good cooling features, but hot sleepers will probably prefer the DreamCloud because of the increased airflow from the coil layer. The Nectar is a better option for budget shoppers, since it’s considerably cheaper than the DreamCloud.

The Saatva Classic is a luxury innerspring mattress with a euro pillow top that’s available in three different firmnesses: Plush Soft, Luxury Firm, and Firm. Because of the different firmness options, the Saatva Classic is a very versatile mattress that works well for almost any body type, sleeping position, and for hot sleepers.

Both mattresses work well for back and stomach sleepers, but the Plush Soft Saatva is the better option for side sleepers. Pricewise, the Saatva Classic is more expensive than the DreamCloud, but the Saatva comes with a 180-night trial period and free in-home setup.

Casper‘s flagship mattress is an all-foam bed, but they do offer a hybrid version as well: the Casper Hybrid. The Casper Hybrid is a little softer than the DreamCloud, but in our performance tests, they earned similar scores across the board

The Casper has more of a conforming memory foam feel, while the DreamCloud has the balanced, cloud-like feel of a pillowtop mattress. The DreamCloud is a little more expensive, but both companies run seasonal discounts that affect their pricing.

DreamCloud Mattress FAQ

Is the DreamCloud mattress worth the cost?

Yes, the DreamCloud is a worth the cost, but it depends on the sleeper. Youu2019ll need to consider your size, sleeping position, budget, desired feel, and other factors, such as if you sleep with a partner. Overall, the DreamCloud is a great mattress for couples, back sleepers, and hot sleepers.

Whatu2019s the lifespan of a DreamCloud mattress?

The DreamCloud mattress is made with both foam and coils, so while it should last you at least seven years, you may notice indentations forming in the foam layers around that time. Fortunately, DreamCloud protects their mattress with a Lifetime warranty, which shows how confident they are in their product.

Where are DreamCloud mattresses made?

When we spoke with DreamCloud customer service, they said DreamCloud mattresses are manufactured in Vietnam, Malaysia, and Taiwan. The foam is produced in the U.S., and the covers come from Mexico. They also referred us to the manufacturing label on our mattress, which specifies where our particular mattress was made.

What’s the Bottom Line?

The DreamCloud mattress brings a high-quality, hotel-like feel to the bed-in-a-box market. It performed well in all of our tests, and while it’s not a perfect fit for every sleeper, it’s a great option for a lot of people. Specifically, we recommend it to couples, back sleepers, stomach sleepers under 230 lbs, and hot sleepers.

For budget shoppers, we would definitely recommend something a little less pricey. But if you want a little bit of luxury and want to feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud, the DreamCloud definitely delivers.
