DreamCloud Premier vs. DreamCloud Premier Rest Overview

The DreamCloud Premier and the Premier Rest both feature luxury designs with cashmere mattress covers and cushioning foam. That said, the more premium Premier Rest is a thicker and much softer mattress, best for couples and combination sleepers. On the other hand, the standard Premier is still plenty luxurious and soft for side sleepers and lightweight sleepers.

Who Should Choose the DreamCloud Premier Mattress?

  • Back and stomach sleepers—For back and stomach sleepers, it’s crucial to have a mattress that’s enough to keep the back and hips aligned. And, the DreamCloud Premier’s medium-firm feel and supportive hybrid design work great for average-weight and lighter back sleepers and stomach sleepers. 
  • Heavyweight sleepers—Like with back and stomach sleepers, heavyweight sleepers do better with more support too. The Premier’s sturdy but luxurious is perfect for heavier sleepers who want firmness without compromising on cushion.
  • Sleepers needing pressure relief—Although the DreamCloud Premier is the more firm of the two mattresses, it offers better pressure relief for side sleepers, especially in the hip and shoulder area. 

Who Should Choose the DreamCloud Premier Rest Mattress?

  • Lightweight side sleepers—The DreamCloud Premier Rest’s ultra-soft design works best with lightweight side sleepers who need the most pressure relief of any type of sleeper. The Premier Rest’s thicker foam layers reduce any pressure build-ups for even the lightest sleepers.
  • Combination sleepers—The Premier Rest’s thicker construction and bouncy support coils give it a solid bounce, which makes it a match made in heaven for combination sleepers who toss, turn, and change positions all throughout the night.
  • Couples—Like combination sleepers, couples need a good amount of responsiveness when sharing a bed, but also motion isolation. If you’re a light sleeper planning to share your next DreamCloud bed, the Premier Rest is the safe bet for sleeping through your partner’s tossing and turning.

DreamCloud Premier vs. DreamCloud Premier Rest: Top Similarities 

  • Construction—Layer for layer, these two DreamCloud Premier mattresses are pretty similar. They both have hybrid constructions, they both have similar foam support layers, and they both have cashmere covers. The only real difference here is that the Premier rest is more luxurious, thicker, and a whole lot softer.
  • Temperature Control—You may have already guessed, but two mattresses made of similar materials will likely perform similarly on temperature control. In fact, both beds have decent temperature control—due to lots of warming memory foam, but a breathable coil base.
  • Lightweight Back Sleepers—In terms of how these two DreamCloud beds actually feel, the standard Premier is best for back and stomach sleepers, while the Premier Rest is ideal for lightweight side sleepers and some combination sleepers. However, if you’re a lightweight back sleeper, either bed should work just fine. 

DreamCloud Premier vs. DreamCloud Premier Rest: Top Differences 

  • Stomach Sleepers—If you’re a stomach sleeper, you’ll want to pay attention to this. While the Premier is great for stomach sleepers up to 230 lbs, the Premier Rest’s much softer design just doesn’t cut it for even the lightest sleepers needing hip support.
  • Pressure Relief—In terms of pressure relief, the DreamCloud Premier Rest may be the softer mattress, but the standard Premier offers more relief for average-weight and heavier back and stomach sleepers.
  • Edge Support—Hybrid beds tend to have better edge support, and the DreamCloud Premier is no exception. That said, the Premier Rest’s much softer design doesn’t offer the same solidness around the perimeter, making it less than ideal if you like to sleep or sit on your bed’s edge.

DreamCloud Premier vs. DreamCloud Premier Rest: Firmness & Feel Differences

Now that we’ve compared these two beds, let’s get more specific about how each DreamCloud mattress feels.

What’s the Firmness Of the DreamCloud Premier & DreamCloud Premier Rest Mattresses? 

At Mattress Nerd, we like to rate firmness on a simple scale of 1–10, where a 10 is like sleeping on bricks and a 1 is like sleeping on a literal cloud. 

First off, the standard DreamCloud Premier clocks in at a medium-firm 6.5/10 on our firmness scale. This level of solidness works best for the average sleeper and for heavy weight sleepers too. However, some lightweight side sleepers may need to turn down the firmness.

Next, the DreamCloud Premier Rest reps a soft 4.5/10 on our firmness scale, making it especially comfortable for lightweight side sleepers and some combination sleepers. Unfortunately, though, this level of firmness just won’t cut it for most stomach and back sleepers.

What Do the DreamCloud Premier & DreamCloud Premier Rest Mattresses Feel Like?

Moving on to the feel of these beds, the DreamCloud Premier’s medium-firm design gives it a soft and cushioned, but lifted and bouncy feel, thanks to the mattress’s coil support layer. Similarly, the DreamCloud Premier Rest also features a soft mattress cover and contouring foam support layers, but this mattress is more sinking and cushioned. For heavier sleepers, the Premier Rest may actually feel too plush and doughy.

What’s It Like to Sleep On the DreamCloud Premier & DreamCloud Premier Rest Mattresses?

For back sleepers, neither bed should feel extremely different, although the standard Premier will work best for heavier sleepers. On the other hand, regardless of weight, the Premier Rest’s super soft feel is a bad match for most stomach sleepers. And, lastly, for side sleepers, lightweight sleepers may prefer the softness of the Premier Rest, but average-weight and heavier side sleepers will want to go with the more supportive standard Premier.

The DreamCloud Premier vs. DreamCloud Premier Rest Mattresses By Body Type

DreamCloud Premier Performance By Body Type & Sleeping Position:

Body Type:BACK SLEEPERSSTOMACH SLEEPERSSIDE SLEEPERS
Lightweight (< 130 lbs): 553
Average-weight (130–230 lbs):555
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs): 435

Body Type:BACK SLEEPERSSTOMACH SLEEPERSSIDE SLEEPERS

Average-weight (130–230 lbs):414
Heavyweight (> 230 lbs): 31

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

Average-Weight Sleepers (130–230 lbs)

If you’re an average-weight back sleeper or stomach sleeper, the DreamCloud Premier’s lifted and medium-firm design will be ideal; however, the Premier Rest will feel much too soft and unsupportive. 

For average-weight side sleepers, however, the difference between the Premier and the Premier Rest shouldn’t be as noticeable, but you’ll still want to go with the more supportive standard Premier.

Heavyweight Sleepers (> 230 lbs)

Heavyweight sleepers usually sleep best on beds that are supportive and a little firmer than average. In this case, heavyweight back sleepers will prefer the standard DreamCloud Premier since it has a medium-firm feel. Similarly, stomach sleepers too will get much more support from the Premier than the Premier Rest.

However, for side sleepers, the difference isn’t as drastic. While heavyweight side sleepers will likely prefer the standard Premier’s supportive feel, the Premier Rest should work nearly as well.

Lightweight Sleepers (< 130 lbs)

Although lightweight sleepers need the most pressure relief and softness, lightweight back sleepers will do just fine on either the Premier or the Premier Rest. However, when it comes to lightweight stomach sleepers, more firmness is actually better, and the standard Premier wins by a landslide.

And, finally, for lightweight side sleepers, the Premier Rest’s much softer feel is going to be the better choice of the two mattresses. That said, there isn’t a huge discrepancy in feel for this type of sleeper.

Differences In Mattress Construction 

There’s a lot in common between these beds, so let’s start with the differences. First off, the DreamCloud Premier Rest, while made with a very similar design to the 14 inch standard DreamCloud Premier, measures in at a whopping 16 inches tall.

Cover

Starting from the top, both of these DreamCloud Premier beds feature a cashmere mattress cover, which provides a luxurious and soft feel. That said, it’s still recommended that you use sheets for either bed.

Comfort Layers

Next, below the mattress cover, both beds have a two inch Euro pillow top that adds extra cushioning. Within this layer, one inch of the pillow top consists of high-loft memory foam, to provide extra lift for combination sleepers, and another inch of soft, classic memory foam.

Underneath this, both beds also have an extra comfort layer of supportive transition foam that softens the feel of the coils below. However, the standard DreamCloud Premier has one inch of transition foam, while the Premier Rest has two, making it the softer option.

Support Layers

Both beds also have a support layer of individually wrapped coils. Since these coils are wrapped, they reduce motion transfer and improve the beds’ durability.

Finally, at the base of both mattresses is a one inch high-density foam layer. The purpose of this extra dense foam is to support and strengthen the mattress above and add extra firmness.

DreamCloud Premier vs. DreamCloud Premier Rest Mattress Performance Ratings & Differences

Temperature

This one’s a draw. Memory foam mattresses are known for holding onto body heat throughout the night, and the same applies to both of these DreamCloud Premier beds. Neither bed is terribly warm, but pretty standard for a mostly-foam mattress.

Motion Transfer

Once again, this one’s pretty close between the Premier and Premier Rest, but the Rest wins out on motion transfer. This is because the Premier Rest features an extra inch of transition memory foam that absorbs movement better and also makes it the better choice for light sleeping couples.

Edge Support 

The Premier Rest may reduce motion transfer better, but the standard Premier edges out the competition with edge support. Edge support is essentially how well your mattress can hold weight, like you lying or sitting, on its perimeter without sagging. And, since the standard Premier is the firmer bed, you’ll get more sturdiness out of it.

Pressure Relief 

This might sound counterintuitive, but the more firm Premier actually has better pressure relief than the soft and luxurious Premier Rest. This is because the Rest is so soft that average-weight, heavyweight, and even some lightweight sleepers sink too far down into the bed and don’t get enough support on their hips, shoulders, and backs.

Pain Relief 

For sleepers with aches and pains, the right Premier bed for you depends on your sleeping style. If you’re a lightweight sleeper with back pain, the Premier Rest may be the best option for you, while most other sleepers will get a better balance of support and softness on the standard Premier.

Durability 

This one sort of goes hand-in-hand with edge support: if your bed can hold more weight without sagging, then it’s likely a little more durable. Even though the Premier Rest is the thicker mattress, you can probably expect to get more use and less sagging out of the standard Premier. Regardless, both hybrid beds have a solid coil base, meaning you run into any issues for well over the average mattress lifespan of seven years.

Shipping, Returns, & Warranties 

Whichever bed you choose, you’ll be getting the same mattress policies. Let’s start off with shipping. When you order your DreamCloud mattress, you’ll also receive free shipping anywhere in the United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii). In those states, you’ll have to pay a $150 shipping charge. After that, you can expect your mattress to ship within seven to 14 business days. Finally, once your DreamCloud arrives, you just have to let it decompress out of the box, but, if you’d rather, you can also request white glove delivery and old mattress removal for an additional $149.

Once your mattress is all set up, you’ll have a 365-night trial, at any point during which you can request your mattress to be picked up and returned for free. But, if you do want to keep your Premier mattress, you’ll also be entitled to a Lifetime warranty that covers against any defects or damage from normal wear and tear.

Our Final Take

The original Nectar and Premier Copper are both all foam mattresses, but hot sleepers will prefer the more luxurious Premier Copper, and sleepers wanting maximum edge support will prefer the Nectar. Lastly, the Premier Copper is ideal for back sleepers, while the standard Nectar has better support for side sleepers.

Nectar & Nectar Premier Copper FAQs

Are Nectar Beds Non-Toxic?

No. Some shoppers are concerned that the mattress’s off-gassing is toxic, but this part of the unboxing process is safe and temporary. To avoid this odor, however, it’s recommended that you leave your new mattress in a well-ventilated room for a few days to allow the off-gassing to fully dissipate.

How Long Do Nectar Beds Last?

The average bed lasts about seven to 10 years before it begins to sag. That said, the Nectar and the Nectar Premier Copper are durable and also come with Nectar’s Lifetime “Forever” warranty that covers any defects to your mattress for as long as you own it.

Which Nectar Bed Is Best?

This depends on a variety of factors including budget, sleeping preferences, and body type. Between the Nectar Premier and the original Nectar, shoppers on a budget will prefer the original, while luxury shoppers will want the Premier. Also, back sleepers will prefer the Premier and side sleepers the original.
