Today we’re comparing popular products from two mattress-in-a-box companies. Operating primarily online, they both offer free trial periods on their mattresses.
Layla and DreamCloud are for people who are not looking for all-natural products but are interested in modern reasonably priced high-quality mattresses. They both contain a lot of memory foam even though their construction is completely different, so bear that in mind if you are a hot sleeper (both mattresses mention cooling properties but we know that true cool sleep is far away from memory foam).
One more thing you should know is that if you are in physical pain, direct your attention to the DreamCloud because it offers firm structure and pain-relief.
Read on for more similarities and differences between these two mattresses. We’re hoping to help you opt for the one that best meets your needs.

Layla Mattress is flippable, which means that it is softer on one side and firmer on the other. Depending on your body type, health, and personal preferences you can opt for the side that works the best for you. This quality is supported by its construction. Here we’re talking about their flagship Memory Foam Mattress.
The mattress cover is made of a polyester blend. It feels soft to touch and with its honeycomb-like design, the cover looks truly appealing.
Just below is the cooling 3-inch copper-infused memory foam layer for the soft side and one inch of the same layer on the firm side. There’s a supporting layer of convoluted polyfoam on the soft side. The company calls it the Max Airflow Support Foam. This means that they incorporated special technology into this layer for a double role – more support and airflow increase.
Finally, the shared core is made of a 4-inch polyfoam layer which should minimize motion transfer and bounce. The entire mattress is 10 inches high.
The DreamCloud cover is made of a very soft cashmere/polyester blend with a memory foam quilt. The next thing that welcomes you is a high-density layer designed to offer instant pressure relief by getting activated on pressure points.
After this layer lies the special foam which reduces motion transfer, that is, your partner’s movements.
Then comes a pocketed coil layer. The coils offer excellent support and the airflow between them helps dissipate the body heat. Finally, the foundation layer is made of dense polyfoam which helps keep coils in control and distribute the movement even better.

Customer Service Comparison
Layla warranty and trial period
You get a lifetime warranty on a Layla mattress. This includes sagging, loss of mattress height, and foam splitting or cracking.
Another good news is that the trial period is 120 nights and it’s free as well as shipping and handling. You do, however, need to keep the mattress for the first two weeks after purchase until you get used to it and see whether you really want to return it.
DreamCloud warranty and trial period
Like Layla, DreamCloud offers a lifetime warranty on their mattress. However, the policies differ.
During the first 10 years your mattress will be replaced if there are any defects.
After 10 years, DreamCloud may repair or replace the mattress.
If the company determines that there was no defect in manufacturing, they will not waive shipping charges. Otherwise you’ll get the mattress replaced or repaired for free.
DreamCloud offers a trial much longer than the 120-night average. The 365-day trial begins 30 days after the purchase. They want you to use the mattress for 30 days so that it has enough time to break in.
You should buy Layla if…
- You want or need a soft and firm option
- You are not a heavy person
- You like when a mattress “hugs” your body
- You like memory foam beds
- You are not a hot sleeper
- You don’t have any pains that require a firm sleeping surface
You should buy DreamCloud if…
- You sleep on your back or stomach
- You weigh average or higher
- You prefer a firmer mattress
- You suffer from a back injury or chronic back pain that requires more support
- You don’t like mattresses that you sink into
- Your partner moves a lot
