DreamCloud Premier vs. Loom & Leaf Overview

Who Should Choose the DreamCloud Premier Mattress?
- Heavyweight Sleepers: The hybrid DreamCloud Premier’s base is comprised of firm foam, steel coils, and another layer of firm foam. This foam and coil sandwich supports a neutral spine for heavyweight sleepers, while the pillow top cushions your points of most pressure.
- Sleepers Needing Edge Support: For sleepers with mobility issues, or if you often use your bed as a chair, you’ll definitely notice the difference in this mattress’ perimeter versus an all-foam bed like the Loom & Leaf.
- Couples: Good edge support also gives couples more usable space to spread out. The DreamCloud Premier’s well-rounded performance has a lot to offer if you share the bed with a partner, pet, or child.
Who Should Choose the Loom & Leaf Mattress?
- Shoppers Who Like Tempur-Pedic: Saatva’s memory foam Loom & Leaf is meant to compete with Tempur-Pedic models. And while it’s definitely not a budget mattress, you get similar features in Saatva’s mattress that Tempur-Pedic’s more expensive models offer.
- Memory Foam Fans: With a Relaxed Firm and Firm option, memory foam lovers can have your evening hug without sacrificing a firm, stable support for your back, hips, and shoulders.
- Back and Stomach Sleepers <230 lbs: The Relaxed firm option is a great fit if you sleep on your front or back, offering a mix of cradling pressure relief and spinal support. Heavier folks will need to opt for the Firm to get that same performance.
DreamCloud Premier vs. Loom & Leaf: Top Similarities
- Price: Both of these luxury mattresses are expensive, but they do their job of providing luxury performance—a good investment in your sleep for around a decade.
- Firmness: The DreamCloud Premier and Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm models both feel medium-firm, a popular rating that appeals to the widest range of sizes and sleeping positions.
- Temperature: Both mattresses have cooling features that do a decent job of dispersing body heat.
DreamCloud Premier vs. Loom & Leaf: Top Differences
- Construction: Memory foam vs hybrid mattresses have quite a few differences. It’s important to discern which performs best for your preferences and needs.
- Motion Isolation: The Premier’s base layers of foam and coils work together to decrease felt motion, sufficient for the average sleeper. But it can’t compete with the motion isolation of the doughy memory foam in the Loom & Leaf.
- Edge Support: But that doughy memory foam sags quite a bit on the edges of this mattress. This shouldn’t be a deal breaker for most sleepers, but couples might like the extra usable space on the DreamCloud Premier.
DreamCloud Premier vs. Loom & Leaf: Firmness & Feel Differences
Firmness describes the feel of a mattress when you press down into the comfort levels. Mattresses can range from 1-10 on our firmness scale, 10 being as hard as the ground.
What’s the Firmness Of the DreamCloud Premier & Loom & Leaf Mattresses?
We rated the DreamCloud Premier as a 6.5/10, which is the popular medium-firm that meets the needs of most average sleepers. With a nice balance of cradling and stability, the DreamCloud Premier will win over sleepers of all sizes.
The Loom & Leaf comes in two firmness options: the Relaxed Firm (6/10) and the Firm (8/10). The Relaxed Firm is in the same medium-firm category as the DreamCloud Premier. This all-foam bed is best suited for back and stomach sleepers less than 230 lbs. The Firm option has a polyfoam transition layer that is firmer and a better fit for heavyweight sleepers.
What Do the DreamCloud Premier & Loom & Leaf Mattresses Feel Like?
We rated the DreamCloud Premier as one of the best pillow top mattresses, with 5.5″ of foam for cushioning that offer hotel-like luxury. But the supportive transition foams and coil layer keep you lifted on top of the mattress, so it feels like you’re sleeping “on” the mattress, not “in” it.
On the other hand, Loom & Leaf’s memory foam has a similar feel to the popular Tempur-Pedic, giving you a slow-to-respond hug that delivers stellar pressure relief. Both firmness options do have an extra lumbar support foam under your hips, so you won’t feel stuck.
What’s It Like to Sleep On the DreamCloud Premier & Loom & Leaf Mattresses?
There’s no bad way to rest on the DreamCloud Premier—which is why it made so many of our lists of favorites: best mattresses for back sleepers, best mattresses for stomach sleepers, and best mattresses for side sleepers. The medium-firm hybrid has quite the versatility.
The Loom & Leaf Relaxed Firm model works well for back and stomach sleepers under 230 lbs. On our pressure map, we did see yellows and oranges (pressure collection) around the shoulders, so side sleepers might like a softer mattress. For heavyweight folks, the Firm option should accommodate back sleepers, but there are better options for stomach and side sleepers.
The DreamCloud Premier vs. Loom & Leaf Mattresses By Body Type
DreamCloud Premier Performance By Sleeping Position:
|Lightweight (< 130 lbs):
|Average weight (130 – 230 lbs):
|Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):
Loom & Leaf Performance By Sleeping Position:
|Lightweight (< 130 lbs):
|Average weight (130 – 230 lbs):
|Heavyweight (> 230 lbs):
1 = Very poor, 2 = Not good, 3 = Fair, 4 = Good, 5 = Excellent
Average-Weight Sleepers (130–230 lbs)
You’ll be blown away by the DreamCloud Premier’s delivery of comfort and healthy support. It doesn’t matter how you sleep—on your back, front, side, or a combination—the hybrid construction is likely to have you looking forward to bedtime all day.
The medium-firm model of the Loom & Leaf (Relaxed Firm) is great for back and stomach sleepers. Side sleepers are likely to feel discomfort in your shoulders, so instead look at mattresses with medium firmness. The Firm option is helpful if you need more support to relieve back pain.
Heavyweight Sleepers (> 230 lbs)
The DreamCloud Premier is the most robust since its materials stand up to all sizes and sleeping positions. This means for couples that both partners will likely be pleased with its performance. All-foam beds usually compress too much to keep heavyweight folks lifted into a nice, neutral spine. You might be fine with the Loom & Leaf Firm option, but there are lots of mattresses to consider from our list of best mattresses for heavyweight sleepers.
Lightweight Sleepers (< 130 lbs)
Those under 130 lbs will sink into the DreamCloud Premier’s soft euro pillow top, just enough to feel supported on your back and stomach. Side sleepers, you might need a softer mattress for your shoulders and hips. Lightweight sleepers should steer towards the Relaxed Firm option of the Loom & Leaf which offers excellent performance for back and stomach sleepers. We noted pressure collection in the shoulder area for side sleepers.
Differences In Mattress Construction
Both of these thicker-than-average mattresses have five layers of material. The 14″ thick DreamCloud Premier has a hybrid construction, with 5.5″ of foam atop coils, ensuring you have comfort and support, no matter your size. Saatva offers a Relaxed Firm and Firm option which both have a 12″ profile. This all-foam bed gives you stellar pressure relief and a soft hug each night.

First impressions go a long way and the DreamCloud Premier’s Mongolian cashmere blended cover makes a great one. While soft, it’s also thin and breathable. Saatva uses organic cotton on the cover of the Loom & Leaf and treats it with a natural thistle flame retardant instead of chemical sprays.
The DreamCloud Premier’s comfort layer keeps bringing the luxury-feel with a euro top made of high-loft memory foam (1″) and soft foam (1″). This rests on top of the 2.5″ of pressure-relieving memory foam.
No matter which firmness you choose, both Loom & Leaf models have a unique spinal gel layer, plus two memory foam layers. The spinal gel only covers the middle third of the mattress, supporting and cooling your lower back and hips. The perforated memory foam is gel-infused, two attributes that counteract overheating. The Premium Memory Foam is 2.5″ of Saatva’s “body-hug” layer.
The DreamCloud Premier’s base is comprised of individually wrapped steel coils. For transition, added durability, and motion isolation, the coil layer is sandwiched between two 1″ pieces of support foam (the bread). The foam transition layer for the Loom & Leaf varies depending on the firmness you choose. It’s made of polyfoam and is softer and easier to compress in the Relaxed Firm, and firmer in the Firm model. Both models have a 5.5″ high-density foam base, which is pretty typical for all-foam beds.

DreamCloud Premier vs. Loom & Leaf Mattress Performance Ratings & Differences
Both the DreamCloud Premier and the Loom & Leaf have materials to counteract excess body heat, keeping the average sleeper cool. The hybrid Premier has a base layer of coils, providing sufficient airflow. The all-foam Loom & Leaf does a reasonable job, as well, with several layers of gel-infused memory foam and perforated foam to create space for air and humidity to go. If overheating is a top concern, read about more options in our roundup of best cooling mattresses.
The DreamCloud Premier’s responsive foam and coil layers create some felt movement across the mattress, but shouldn’t bother you unless you sleep very lightly. This also makes it easier to change positions in your sleep for those who toss and turn. The all-foam Loom & Leaf excels at isolating movement at its source, thanks to the slow-to-respond memory foam. This is especially true of the Relaxed Firm option. Combination sleepers, you’ll find it slightly easier to move around on the Firm option.
The hybrid DreamCloud Premier excels at providing support to the perimeter of the mattress, creating more space for couples. If you use your bed as a chair or need to get on and off the mattress slowly, edge support is a factor you’ll appreciate. Unfortunately, the huggable, all-foam Loom & Leaf does not perform well at this. During our testing, there was significant sag when sitting on the edge. Not a deal breaker for the average sleeper, but something to consider.
Here’s where memory foam shines. The comfort layer of both mattresses is made from memory foam, known for cushioning your heavier body parts where pressure can collect (hips, lower back, and shoulders). The DreamCloud Premier’s 5.5″ of foam disperses pressure well, helping to create a pain-free night of sleep in all sleeping positions. The Loom & Leaf’s comfort layer also delivers relief with both firmness options due to the extra lumbar support foam under the hip area.
A high-quality mattress that matches your body’s needs can really help ease aches and pains in your back, shoulders, or hips. The DreamCloud Premier supports a healthy back, keeping your spine’s neutral “S” curve with the balance of contouring foam and firm coils. If you suffer from chronic pain, instead consider our best mattresses for back pain. The Loom & Leaf Firm aids those with back pain who weigh less than 230 lbs. Those with hip or shoulder pain may want a softer mattress—our testers did notice pressure collection in these areas. Instead, check out the best mattresses for shoulder pain.
Both luxury mattresses are made out of high-quality materials, but foam can begin to leave lasting body impressions. The DreamCloud Premier will be a great bed for about a decade thanks to its coil base. To get a solid 8 to 10 years out of the Loom & Leaf, be sure to put it on a solid surface for stable support and rotate it every few months for even wear.

Our Final Take
The DreamCloud Premier checks all the boxes for just about every sleeper. Its hybrid construction and medium-firm feel provide that balance of cushion and support that works for back, stomach, and side sleepers of most sizes. Back and stomach sleepers less than 230 lbs will be most pleased with an investment in the luxury Loom & Leaf mattress, especially if you love that traditional memory foam hug after a long day.
DreamCloud Premier & Loom & Leaf FAQs
Is the DreamCloud worth it?
If you’re in the market for a luxury mattress, the DreamCloud Premier reaches a wide audience of sleepers. No matter your size or preferred sleeping position, its hybrid construction can deliver nearly a decade of rest. And if you disagree, their hassle-free return policy is good for an entire year.
Who makes the Loom & Leaf?
Saatva launched in 2010 and offers many types of high-quality, luxury mattresses: hybrid, latex, memory foam, adjustable firmness mattresses (think Sleep Number), and even youth and crib mattresses. With the memory foam Loom & Leaf, they’re trying to offer competition to the popular Tempur-Pedic, at a lower cost.
How many years does the DreamCloud last?
Mattresses with coils typically have a longer lifetime than all-foam because of the durability of the material. While you’re spending quite a bit for the luxury of the DreamCloud, you’ll get about 10 years of superior performance for your investment. That’s a reasonable time to replace old mattresses.
