Honest DreamCloud Mattress Review
Hello Unboxers! Join us today for an honest DreamCloud mattress review. DreamCloud is a hybrid mattress which means it has memory foam and springs. Since writing this post, DreamCloud has changed some, read about DreamCloud changes here.
The main points you need to know about Dreamcloud are:
- A full 15 inches in height
- Hybrid luxury mattress that comes in a box (bag, actually) and has springs
- Memory foam with a firmer touch that won’t sink a lot or get too warm
- Has side handles to help you move your mattress around on the bed easier
- European-style quilted top – each square is like a little cloud
- Has an incredible 1 year trial period and a lifetime warranty
Tufted European Style Hybrid Mattress in a Box
The top is a European pillow top style mattress with a high-end cashmere cover and tufting we don’t usually see in a boxed mattress. It comes in a very large, durable bag. They offer a white glove service and will set up your mattress for you in your home.
To be honest, DreamCloud makes other mattresses in a box seem boring by comparison. There’s a lot more going on with this mattress, so let’s get into the details.
We’re reviewing the queen-size DreamCloud, which was given to us for this review.
We know how tough it can be to decide on an online mattress you’ll love. This customer tried the Purple mattress twice! But in the end, she found and got stuck with Dreamcloud.
Here’s what she said:
Got ours delivered and set up yesterday. So far it’s great! My hubby has back issues and we have gone through every mattress imaginable, from Tempurpedic to Purple. We had bought a Stearns Fosters and liked the firmness and the coils for support but not the huge price tag and the big buttons we could feel through several layers. This is our 11th mattress in the last 2 years….ELEVEN!! The last one we purchased was a Christelli mattress and it started having issues after 6mos but because they only have a 60 day trial period we are now out $2500. Looking forward to seeing how this mattress hold up over this next year.
Here are the mattress brands she tried, listed in order:
2. Linenspa (Amazon)
3. Tuft and needle
8. Stearns and Foster hybrid with cooling
9. Purple again
“So far it’s been great. My husband needs a firmer bed and this is firm enough for him but still soft enough for me.”
” My husband is a big guy and that’s the problem we had with all of the others. Some were just too thin of a mattress, 10” is not enough when it’s just foam.”
Jennifer Smith Kiggans
Not sure if it’s right for you?
When you hear the word cloud, you think soft, but DreamCloud will only be your dream mattress if you like your bed on the firm end. In fact, it’s the most firm bed in a box mattress we’ve tested so far.
Honestly, we thought DreamCloud would be too soft. We usually steer away from a memory foam mattress for that reason. However, it’s more firm than expected. The mattress does warm up to your body, but not a lot. So if you sleep warm, you can rest easy with this mattress.
The Dreamcloud mattress doesn’t come in a box. It comes in a double layer of bags. Yes, that’s right, it’s boxless! It arrived in great condition, and delivery was fast.
It weighs 94 lbs. The mattress was rolled up in layers of plastic and well-protected. Everything about it spoke to its quality.
Dreamcloud offers a lease-to-own finance option if you cannot pay in full, which is helpful.
You can’t beat the sleep trial or warranty on this mattress! When you think of clouds, think of eternity because it will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for as long as you own and use the mattress.
The lifetime warranty – or as long as you own it – works like this:
- For the first 10 years of ownership, they will replace your mattress with a brand new DreamCloud at absolutely no charge to you if defective in workmanship and materials.
- In years 10+, they will completely repair and re-cover your DreamCloud or replace your DreamCloud, and all transportation charges will be waived if a manufacturing defect(s) or a materials failure is confirmed to exist.
You get a full-year sleep trial on this bed. That means you can get a full refund, no shipping or fees if you change your mind in the first YEAR. Did you know Mattress Firm gives you 30 days trial on their mattresses and charges you almost $80 for a return? That’s why we love that you get plenty of time to decide what you think. Plus, you’re not out anything if you don’t keep it.
Dreamcloud comes with a 20-year guarantee, which is also generous. While you may never need it, the warranty and sleep trial helps give you peace of mind that you’ll be happy with your purchase.
Some people mention a terrible smell and odor once it’s open, but it wasn’t that terrible. There wasn’t a strong offgassing. Mattresses from the same brand may have more or less a new bed smell to them, depending on the manufacturing process and how long they aired out before being wrapped in plastic. So your bed may be different than someone else’s.
Dreamcloud is CertiPUR-US® approved. These foams are made without ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals, formaldehyde, and phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They are Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million).
Dreamcloud has 8 layers which aren’t as many as some other luxury brands, but it has higher-end detailing and a cashmere cover.
Top Layer – TrueTufted Cashmere Top
This is the dreamiest part of the mattress. Their Cashmere cover provides breathability, adds premium softness, and is naturally resistant to bedbugs.

Contouring support that conforms to your body but won’t leave you stuck and overheating. DreamCloud’s gel-infused foam is cooling and supportive.
Layer 3 – Quilted Memory Foam
They say it’s soft, but we already covered that!
Layer 4 – Natural Latex
DreamCloud’s hypoallergenic super premium natural latex layer provides a cushioning bounce for extra give and added contouring.
Layer 5 – DreamPlush Supporting Memory Foam
Luxurious high-density memory foam provides deep contouring support and the best possible dreamworlds.
Layer 6 – Super Dense Super Soft Memory Foam
