Dreamcloud mattress with messed up sheets

The DreamCloud (save $200 when clicking on this link) is a hybrid mattress that contains an innerspring core surrounded by a gel comfort layer. It has eight different layers including a quilted euro top and a comfort & contour layer. The company offers a 365-day trial and a lifetime warranty on all of their mattresses. They also offer free shipping and a 0% financing option.

Our favorite thing about the DreamCloud Hybrid Luxury Mattress is that it is designed to provide a cooling effect. Another aspect that won over our reviewers is that the multiple memory foam layers provide adequate support for sore backs while also preserving a soft feel.

Read on to find out all of the positive and negative aspects of the DreamCloud mattress.

What type of sleeper should use the DreamCloud Mattress?

After extensive testing and feedback from real customers, we’ve determined that the DreamCloud is best for back sleepers.

The DreamCloud provided phenomenal spinal support for all back sleepers no matter how much they weighed. Since the DreamCloud is a hybrid-style mattress with sturdy construction, sleepers who weight more than average still found that it supported their back.

Stomach sleepers who weigh more than average found that the mattress “sank in” on their stomach area. If you’re average weight or lower you shouldn’t have that issue.

Side sleepers who are lighter than average might find that the DreamCloud is a little bit too firm, especially in your shoulder area. Of course, if you know that you prefer a firmer mattress you should definitely consider the DreamCloud even if you’re a light side sleeper.

You should buy the DreamCloud mattress if you:

  • Are a back sleeper of any weight
  • Are a stomach sleeper of average or lower weight
  • You’re a side sleeper who is average or above average weight
  • You prefer the feel of a firmer mattress
  • You have a back injury or chronic back pain that requires more support
  • You enjoy more of a “floating feel” rather than “sinking in” to a soft mattress

Features of the DreamCloud Mattress

Zoomed-in view of Dreamcloud mattress

The DreamCloud Mattress was launched in 2016 with the goal of bringing sleepers a luxury hybrid mattress experience. To do this, they created a tall mattress that contains both innerspring coils and multiple layers of foam.

The DreamCloud is definitely occupying a niche space in the “mattress-in-a-box” segment. While they do face stiff competition from brands like Puffy and Saatva, they are the most popular hybrid mattress in this category.

Is DreamCloud living up to their goal of creating a luxury hybrid mattress? Let’s take a deep dive into the details and find out.

Firmness

DreamCloud manufactures their mattresses with a medium-firm level of firmness. The mattress will be more firm than average which is great for people who want more support. Since it’s medium-firm it will also have a soft feel to it that is ideal for people who want that “floating” sensation while laying on their mattress.

Since this mattress is on the firmer side it’s ideal for back sleepers. The firmness provides adequate support for people who have chronic back pain. It’s also great for people who weigh average or greater.

We don’t recommend medium-firm mattress for side sleepers, especially if they weigh less than average. The firmness tends to prevent the mattress from conforming to your body shape when you don’t weigh as much, and sleeping on your side may cause you shoulder discomfort. This won’t be an issue if you know that you prefer firm mattresses and is totally not a big deal, but it’s definitely something to be aware of.

Durability

Like other luxury brands, DreamCloud makes their mattresses out of high quality materials that are designed to last.

The 6-layer construction includes sections that are designed to provide stability and support. The stabilizing base foam layer, pocketed inner-spring coil, and supportive high-density foam layers help support the foam-filled comfort layers and prevent the mattress from losing it’s shape over time.

The DreamCloud is covered by a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects for as long as you own and use the mattress. We estimate that the DreamCloud will last 15 years with normal use, although you can expect it to last much longer with proper care and maintenance.

Construction

The DreamCloud is an extremely tall mattress, measuring in at a whopping 15″ in height. Of course that makes sense when you realize that it needs to be big enough to contain several layers of foam and tightly-wound innerspring coils. Let’s take a look at the different layers and find out just how this mattress is constructed.

The first thing you’ll notice when inspecting your DreamCloud mattress is the cover. The cover is made out of a cashmere and polyester blend for softness. It also features a memory foam quilting for added comfort and pressure relief.

Just underneath the cover you’ll find three thin layers of foam. These foam layers are soft to the touch and do tend to sink in a little bit. This layer is designed to provide comfort. The middle of the three foam layers is constructed of perforated latex foam, which serves a role in temperature regulation. Staying cool at night is an essential aspect of sleep hygiene, and latex is a great material for dispersing heat.

Digging deeper into the guts of this mattress we’ll find the layer of pocketed coils. This is the primary support structure of the mattress is the the part that ensures that it maintains its shape over time. The springs are individually wrapped and provide just the right amount of bounciness. They help reduce motion transfer, so if you are easily disturbed by your partner tossing and turning this layer will definitely help. The coils also help disperse heat, giving you a cooler night of sleep.

When we get to the base of the mattress we find the foundation layer. This is a layer of high-density polyfoam that primarily cradles the pocketed coils, helping them stay in place and giving them enough support to do their job. It also provides a solid foundation for the entire mattress and helps it to support your body weight.

Temperature control

We found that the DreamCloud does an excellent job of regulating temperature and keeping you cool while sleeping. This is mainly due to the heat regulating properties of the middle foam layer, which is made out of latex. The innerspring coil layer is also ventilated, which helps improve airflow and lower your body temperature while sleeping.

The DreamCloud Mattress is one of the best that we’ve tried when it comes to dissipating heat and regulating temperature. If you have problems with getting too hot and waking up covered in sweat at night, then this mattress could be a great solution.

What sizes are available?

DreamCloud makes their mattresses in all of the most common North American sizes. DreamCloud Mattresses are available in the following sizes:

  • Twin
  • Twin XL
  • Full
  • Queen
  • King
  • California King

All of these mattresses have standard dimensions (other than the 15″ height) and will fit in just about any normal foundation (frame, box spring, etc.).

Pricing

Even though the DreamCloud is considered a luxury mattress, their prices are surprisingly affordable. The company has definitely done a great job of giving you the luxury mattress feel at a reasonable price point.

How much does a DreamCloud Mattress cost?

  • Twin ($499)
  • Twin XL ($699)
  • Full ($899)
  • Queen ($999)
  • King ($1,199)
  • California King ($1,199)

Warranty

DreamCloud offers a limited lifetime warranty on their mattresses. This warranty will protect you from manufacturing defects as long as you own and use your mattress.

What are the specific details? Does DreamCloud actually honor their warranty? Here’s what you need to know:

  • During the first 10 years of ownership, DreamCloud will completely replace your old mattress with a brand new one if you find a defect in workmanship and materials.
  • Once you’ve owned your mattress for 10 years or longer, DreamCloud will either repair and recover your mattress OR replace it with a new one at their discretion.
  • Once DreamCloud confirms that there is a defect in workmanship or materials, they will waive any shipping and transportation charges.
  • Your mattress must be used on an appropriate base or frame.
  • The warranty only applies to the original owner.
  • DreamCloud will not honor the warranty if it has been burnt, abused, damaged, misused, or neglected.
  • Normal body impressions (less than 1.5″) are not covered. Impressions that are greater than 1.5″ ARE covered by the warranty.

Trial period

Like most other luxury brands, DreamCloud offers a trial period for their mattresses. DreamCloud offers an extremely generous 365-night sleep trial that begins 30 days after your purchase date. So in reality it’s a 395-night trial, which is about as generous as it gets.

DreamCloud wants you to sleep on your mattress for 30 nights to give it enough time to break in before you initiate your return. The reason they offer a 365-night trial is because they want you to experience their mattress during all four seasons so you can get a complete idea of how it affects your sleep during different environmental conditions.

Is there a catch to DreamClouds trial period? Here are the key points you need to know before initiating a free return:

  • You must be within the 365-day trial window (beginning 30 days after purchase)
  • Your mattress must be clean and undamaged
  • All return requests must be approved before processing. To initiate a refund, contact DreamCloud at 1-855-976-4860 or [email protected]
  • Once approved, you will receive a refund for the total unit price minus and promotions or discounts
  • You can either return the mattress or even keep it!

Care and maintenance

It’s always important to care for your mattress if you want to extend its lifespan. Fortunately, DreamCloud makes their mattresses extremely simple to take care of.

If you spill on or stain your mattress, you can spot clean it the same way you would any other mattress. If the stain is large you can remove the cover and wash it in a machine.

You definitely shouldn’t flip your DreamCloud mattress, since it’s designed to be slept on only one side. We do recommend rotating your mattress (flipping it so the head end becomes the foot end) a few times per year so you don’t put too much pressure on one end of the mattress. This will make sure that your mattress lasts as long as possible.
