What does Reddit say about the Dreamcloud mattress? We summarized the good and the bad below to save you time going through all of the threads.
Dreamcloud is a luxury mattress you can get at an affordable price. Regarding materials, Dreamcloud is made of latex, gel memory foam, and coils. Then there is the zoned support, ideal for those suffering from back, shoulder, and neck pain. There is so much attention to detail we don’t see in other brands. The pillow top style comes standard (it isn’t an add-on).

Dreamcloud Mattress Reddit
Here’s what the people of Reddit have to say about Dreamcloud:
Dreamcloud Mattress Height
It’s a wonder, but Dreamcloud beds are a full 15 inches in height. They’re one of the thickest mattresses that come in a box, plus it has an incredible year sleep trial and forever warranty.
“So far, I have one night on it – the best way to describe it is soft on top but supportive underneath. You sink in a little but can feel the support underneath once the foam support ends.”
It looks like Dreamcloud has fixed shipping delays that many Redditers complained about.
“So overall, you can call it a rather thoughtfully designed product. There are no major customer complaints other than the delivery issues. In fact, those who eventually got their mattress agree that it was worth the wait.”
Is there a lot of motion transfer?
Overall there is low motion transfer, which means the bed doesn’t move around a lot when you do.
“Some motion transfer here and there but nothing too bad. I don’t feel my wife get out and come back to bed when using the bathroom in the middle of the night…but then again, once I am asleep, I sleep like a rock (I’ve slept through smoke detectors going off in the bedroom). After having it for a little over a month and spinning it once, I am pleased so far… If I have my arms under me and then pull them out to put under my head, I can feel the mattress adjust to the pressure change and cradle me in.”
Even though Dreamcloud is advertised as a soft mattress, it can be more firm than expected. Firmness is subjective, but here’s what Redditors have done to solve that issue.
If Dreamcloud is too firm for you, there’s a solution. “Throw a 3-4” gel topper on it, and it will be like heaven. Get a GOOD topper. No kohl’s junk….”
Dreamcloud mattress weight
A Dreamcloud weighs 74 lbs (Twin XL) to 135 lbs (King), so you’ll need help getting this mattress inside your bedroom. Luckily, Dreamcloud offers white glove service. That means they’ll remove it from the packaging and set it up on your bed frame for you. They’ll also remove and dispose of or donate your existing mattress. Not very many boxed mattresses offer this service. It’s well worth the $149 if you have an old mattress to dispose of, don’t have a truck, or are willing to pay for the convenience.
“I got the king and the shipping weight was 138 pounds. I’d say about 20 pounds of that is the outer bag, the zipper nylon bag and the poly wrap they use to vacuum seal the mattress. I had to move it to my 2nd floor by myself – what a pain in the ass. 16 steps, a turn and then up one more had me struggling because there isn’t a good place to grab the outer bag.”
If the Dreamcloud isn’t for you, please try to find a mattress charity or other nonprofit (make sure they are a 501c3) to donate it to. Sometimes they’ll tell you, but you usually have to ask. They may not necessarily tell you what’s available in your state. Otherwise, your mattress will likely be picked up by a junk-type company. You’ll get a receipt either way, which you’ll send to the company to start processing your refund.
Protect your bed for the entire year in case you need to return it
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you get a mattress protector to keep your bed clean if you need to return it. Many companies ask about the condition of the bed you want to return. Dreamcloud has their own branded mattress cover that is thicker and pillow-like. Plus, it’s just gorgeous.
Otherwise, if you are worried about spills or stains, you may want to get a 6-sided mattress protector (also called encasement cover) completely covers the top, sides, and underneath the mattress. Make sure it can handle the 15-inch height.
If you need to store or move your Dreamcloud during the year trial, be sure to get a mattress bag to protect it. It’ll keep your bed looking brand new.
If you’re pretty clean with no pets, you can get a top-only mattress cover which costs a lot less. The Recci mattress protector costs less than half of an encasement cover. It’s only waterproof on top. Use code RECCICOVER here for 30% off any size mattress protector.
