DreamCloud Mattress Review

This is one of my favorite categories, a luxury hybrid mattress review.  I love the extra stability that comes from pocketed coils.  I challenge you to find a mattress that is 15″ or greater, and will ship to your door at a price of $999 after the coupon below.  It’s hard to do, but let’s pretend that you can find one.  Does the mattress that you found have a 365 day trial period?  Does it have a lifetime warranty?  I’m guessing the answer is no.  That’s why it is so easy to recommend the DreamCloud.

DreamCloud Video Review

I loved my DreamCloud so much that I decided to make sure that my friend who is like three times my size had the chance to try it out.  This video is more than a year old, and we both still have our dream cloud mattresses in our houses.  That should give you enough hints as to how this mattress holds up over time (especially under his weight).

Here are my thoughts after sleeping on the DreamCloud:

You aren’t going to get married to the bed, if for some reason it just doesn’t work for you contact DreamCloud and they will arrange for your mattress to get picked up and given to a local charity.  There is nothing to lose on this.  The company has to be extremely confident in their product to send it out with such a no hassle experience for the customer.  The biggest drawback that I can think of for the DreamCloud is that they may end up selling too many of these.  As we have seen before companies that are just too successful at selling tend to have some growing pains.  Those pains generally show up in the form of shipping delays.  Currently, DreamCloud isn’t experiencing shipping days so you should expect delivery within 5-7 business days.  Mine shipped to me in 2 DAYS, which is unbelievable for a bed in a box!

What is Inside the Mattress?

My DreamCloud mattress review wouldn’t be complete without stating that it is a 15” luxury hybrid mattress combining the best of their hand crafted quilted Euro top cover, latex, memory foam, and of course coil technology to provide the best sleep money can buy.

The DreamCloud isn’t messing around with the term Luxury.  This mattress boasts 6 layers of cover, foam, latex and individually pocketed coils.

    • Let’s start from the first contact with your body, the quilted Euro top cover.
    • The second layer is a comfort layer of cooling gel infused memory foam.
    • Third layer also known as support layer provides resistance and a stable foundation for a better alignment.
    • Fourth layer is where the real magic happens. This pocketed innerspring coil layer helps regulation for cool comfort. It’s designed with edge support stability and helps reduce motion transfer for better sleep. 
    • The base support layer provides extra stability to the layer sitting on top of it, the individually pocketed coils layer. 
    • And finally the bottom layer, the bottom mattress cover. I am going to highlight this one because it’s not just a mattress cover, it is what makes the amazing DreamCloud stable and durable helping it sit in the correct place preventing it from moving around while you sleep. 
    • They also have reinforced edges, which is something I dream about when I test out hybrid mattresses.  I love the feel of “hidden” coils.  I enjoy the additional support of the coils, but the DreamCloud takes it up a notch by making sure that you can’t feel them.  It’s a huge win for those of us who sit on the edge of the bed to put on our shoes and socks!
    • The DreamCloud meets all US CPSC fire resistance and flammability standards.

I discovered 2 things today when I moved the DreamCloud into my spare bedroom (so I can test a new mattress).

      1. It is Sturdy and will stand on its side without any assistance.  Many other mattresses do what I call “Tacoing”.  They kind of collapse on themselves, and fold into the shape of a taco.  Picture a mattress folding up on me.  Trust me it happens.  There is no chance that a DreamCloud will taco.
      2. Here is the shocker, when was the last time you looked at the bottom of your mattress?  Never…  Well, you can see in my video that the bottom is way more luxurious than you would expect:

The mattress isn’t flippable, but the bottom cover is nice enough that you could sleep on it if you wanted to.  There is so much attention to detail put in this mattress.  If you haven’t caught on, this mattress SCREAMS luxury.

Sleep Test Results

This mattress has universal appeal, with a medium firm feel, and is good for all types of sleepers.  This is my clear favorite for the hybrid category.  It is also my top pick for best mattresses for big and tall people, yeah I put that to the test also with someone three times my size.

PROS

      • Handles on each side
      • Unbeatable Price
      • 365 Day Sleep Trial
      • Foam encased outer edges, so you can’t feel the coils
      • Best mattress for big and tall people

CONS

      • Some adjustable beds work better with thinner mattresses (Update the DreamCloud adjustable base is strong enough to make their mattress work properly)
      • King Size mattresses will take 2 strong adults to set up/unbox

Who Should Buy the Mattress?

A key difference between the DreamCloud and other luxury hybrid mattresses is their lease to own program.  This is a no credit check program.  If you have a job, and a bank account you can get a DreamCloud and pay for it over a six month time period.  This really works well with their trial period.  They wouldn’t have both of those generous programs if they didn’t think that they were building a great product at a great price.  The DreamCloud essentially earns a place in your bedroom each month.  If you aren’t satisfied they will refund your money and arrange for the mattress to go to a local charity.

It works for petite people like me, but where it really shines is in the Big and Tall category.  I get questions all of the time about what type of mattress is best for a person of X size and Y height.  I have been searching high and low for a mattress that fits people in the big and tall group.  The day I unboxed my DreamCloud I knew that it could handle a large person, so I decided to put it to the ultimate test.  Enter my friend Clinton.  Well see for yourself and then I’ll go through the details:

He is about 6’8″ tall and weighs in at around 350 pounds.  The people at DreamCloud were confident that their bed would work for a person that big so they sent him one and let him sleep test it.  Fast forward a few weeks and see how happy he is on it.  Initially, he was a bit worried as his last 3 mattresses have failed on him.  I assured him that he would get a luxury mattress that will hold up to his size.  Is there a better fit for a giant than sleeping on a cloud?

Why you should consider buying the DreamCloud!

The name says it all, DreamCloud~ so dreamy !

Say goodbye to tossing and turning and grab your one way ticket to DreamCloud. Finally, a well-crafted sturdy yet luxurious and comfortable mattress at an AFFORDABLE price, all in one.

And as if that wasn’t enough, the DreamCloud warranty is one of the strongest warranties in the mattress industry, it’s Everlong. They will even re-condition and clean it for as long as you own and use it. Dream Cloud also offers 365 free night trial and free shipping and returning (but this one is a keeper, there won’t be any returning here).

You are one click away to getting the perfect coil and foam combo in one high quality mattress you can finally afford. So stop dreaming of the perfect bed and get that plush cloud feel you’ve been looking for right now.

What Type of Bed Frame Works for this Mattress?

      • Solid Platform
      • Solid Foundation
      • Slatted Base
      • Adjustable Frame
      • Floor

The thickness of the mattress, a full 15″, makes it a bit of a struggle for an adjustable base.  I’m hoping that it needs a little more time to break in, but in the first week of testing the DreamCloud is in the good tier of adjustable bed conformity.

Their everlong warranty doesn’t encourage “unusual” places for your mattress.  They are funny about it though, as they may add you to their affiliate program if your DreamCloud is in an unusual place.

Current Specials

The DreamCloud has reduced prices for 2019 and they offer another current special of $200 off right now!  With these discounts they are now selling below their unbeatable launching price.  There is no better mattress available at this price!  I’ll top that by sending you an additional $25 gift card if you use these links to purchase of one

Unboxing

A few things about unboxing:

      • It is a serious workout, they packed a lot of bed into a small and very heavy bag.  Make sure you invite a friend over to help you “unbag” it.  Also take some pictures, I’m sure the folks at DreamCloud would love to add them to their website.
      • I live in Arizona which is just a few states over from their distribution center in Washington State.  My shipping time was only 2 DAYS!  I’m sure if you are on the east coast it will take a few days longer.
      • Be patient and gently remove both bags, without cutting into them.  Each of them can be repurposed for storage or something fun like camping.

Unboxing

The Queen sized mattress is heavy, but I was able to move it around with my husband.  The California King size is in another league.  It is so heavy that shipping and moving it require 2 adult males to move it around.  It is heavy enough that it may ship on a pallet for additional support.

I used the DreamCloud in my best mattress protector video.  I was scared that the mattress protectors that I used could fail and mess up my mattress, but I selected it because I knew that DreamCloud offers a one time cleaning service (I made that bold in the pros section above).  Worst case scenario, I could have tested that service out.  Fortunately, I didn’t need to as the mattress protectors did their job and kept it clean.  If you decide to watch that video skip to about 10:25 to see how much liquid was pooling in the tufted section of the DreamCloud.  I thought for sure that the liquid would get through the mattress protector.

DreamCloud just released an adjustable bed.  It is the first adjustable bed that works well with the dreamcloud mattress.  Generally thick mattresses don’t do a great job of bending on weaker adjustable frames.  Well they solved this by getting a really strong adjustable frame to move it around.  Here is how they look together:

FAQ

DreamCloud sent it to us.  All of the opinions expressed in this review are mine.

No, fortunately it has a 365 sleep trial so that you can test it at home for a full YEAR!  

The one I have was made in China, but with the tariff situation I’m willing to bet that they are exploring other manufacturing options. 

Yes, and no.  Their part of a larger company called Resident Home which also sells the Nectar mattress.

Nobody sells an 8 layer 15″ thick hybrid mattress at a price near DreamCloud.

  1. Hi!
    I have researched mattresses and wanted to get the Dream Cloud. The price was going to be great, however when I contacted the company, they said the bottom price was $999 and that included the $200,00 off! This is for a queen size. If there is a different way I can get the price you list of $799 please let me know.
    Thank you!

    1. I think that was a July 4th deal, because the queen prices were $1,299 for a queen cut down to $999 for a queen. I’m going to need to update my charts. Sorry.

  2. would you recommend the dream cloud for a 5’5 125lb side sleeper and a 5’11” 150lb side/back sleeper? or is there a better bed you would recommend for us? thanks!

  3. My husband wants a firm bed
    After getting a faulty traditional mattress we tried a futon mattress, it’s been about 6 months and I can’t take it anymore
    Would you say this would be firm enough for someone who needs firm(he sleeps on the floor at times with just a foam roll)

    1. It is firm for sure. My 350 pound friend has been sleeping on his back for almost a year and he says that it softened up a bit after a few weeks but it is still firm enough for him.

    1. It is pretty good, and I would almost say unique in that department. The tufted construction give it fairly large individual squares, so unless you are on the same square you just don’t feel your partner moving around.

  4. Do you see any problem placing on box springs? We have a recently purchased 3 month old mattress with box springs and the mattress is a disaster – too soft. Am considering the Dreamcloud and hoping to use the box springs that rest on a platform bed frame. What do you think? Thank you.

    1. As long as the box springs are level you shouldn’t have a problem. One thing to keep in mind is that the DreamCloud is so big (15″ thick) that you may want to skip the box springs to bring down the height, or get a ladder to help you climb in and out of bed!

  5. So, I have a traditional bedframe that will accommodate the thickness, BUT I currently use box springs with my king bed. Would a frame with plywood instead of box springs be okay with this mattress?

  6. Dreamcloud had shipping issues in February/March 2018. I ordered my mattress on 2/18/18 and did not receive it until the first week of April. I think that they have resolved the issues and are shipping much faster now.

    1. Thanks Jeff. I don’t think they would have lowered their prices back down to their launch price if they didn’t solve their shipping issues. Sometimes the sales force can get ahead of the factory, for any popular product.

  7. If the mattress is returned for whatever reason, does it get picked up as is? Or does it have to be packed back up into the bag?

    1. Matt, that is a good question and I hear it a lot. If it doesn’t work for you DreamCloud will arrange to have it picked up and donated to a local charity. It won’t/can’t fit back in the bag that it will ship in (the bed ships highly compressed). Personally, I use the bag that it ships in as a huge bag for camping gear.

    1. Hi Matt, Since the mattress is already 15″ thick you shouldn’t need a box spring. Just make sure the base the mattress will be sitting on is solid enough, and if it got slats that the space between them it is no more than 3″

  8. Which would you say would be the next closest comparison to it between the Aurora signature and the Alexander signature hybrid? Thank you.

    1. It is fairly similar to the Nest bedding alexander hybrid. Except that the alexander is more of a pillow top while the dreamcloud is more like one cohesive unit. The Brooklyn bedding signature is probably a little closer to the feel (lower price also).

    1. It has been listed as sold out since the company launched. I have been thinking about why they don’t have one and the only thing I can think of is that it would be overkill at just a twin size. I don’t think there are that many people that sleep on a twin bed that also want a 15″ thick mattress. Then I thought well why don’t they have a twin XL for adjustable beds? I came up with what must be the same answer. At 15″ it’s too thick for most adjustable beds so a split king wouldn’t really be a good option. TLDR, my guess is that they won’t ever make a twin or twin xl dreamcloud.

  9. Luxury hybrid mattress- a category sent from heaven. 15 inches is like a castle… with good edge support so you don’t roll off the cliff of cushion :’) Seriously though- from the cashmere- to the crazy fast shipping- to having EIGHT layers.. they weren’t messing around. Not flippable- but so would! 😉

  10. This bed seems incredible! I’m a huge fan of pillow tops and i can’t even enough of watching it hug the body and especially the no coils on the sides – huge plus! Thanks for the review, Rana! This might be a contender for me! P.S. i love that you call it “tacoing” haha – the worst part about moving mattresses (and the only time I dislike tacos). 🙂

  11. Question: What would you rate this mattress on the hardness scale? I saw you rate many mattresses in terms of softness and firmness on a 1-10 scale. Where would you rate this on that scale?

    1. It took them 3 months to get me a mattress. I contacted them every week, and every week they told me the same thing “it will be shipped out by the end of this week”.
