DreamCloud is a super-premium 15” luxury hybrid mattress combining the best of latex, memory foam, cashmere, hand tufting, and coil technology to provide consistently great sleep. We recently got our hands on the queen-sized model for review and you are about to learn everything there is to know about the DreamCloud.
Mattresses this good used to only be available through retailers with huge markups. Thank god that isn’t the case any longer. I was particularly impressed by how well DreamCloud supported different sleepers and preferences in a single product. If you carry a lot of weight, you’ll enjoy the zoning that works to distribute your weight. I also think you’ll be impressed by how well it keeps cool despite the use of several layers of memory foam. So, let’s dive in, break it down, and see if the Dreamcloud is a good fit for you!

Euro Top- Excellent Comfort for Wide Range of Weights and Preferences
The 15 inches DreamCloud mattress is broken up into eight layers, with the first four comprising the Euro Top.
1. Cashmere Blend Cover
The hand-tufted cashmere blend cover features incredibly fine fibers, which makes it super soft. Make no mistake, the Dreamcloud is a high-end product and the cover is definitely a contributing factor. However, as incredible as it feels to lay on it directly, I’d definitely consider buying a mattress protector to minimize wear and tear.
Hand-tufting is an intricate process by which the top and bottom of the mattress are connected. This detail takes one to two hours for DreamCloud’ artisan stitchers to complete and significantly adds to it’s durability. In the case of the queen-size model, there are 30 individual tufts, which is pretty impressive.
2. Euro Top Layer
Layer two of the Euro top is composed of 1 centimeter of gel-infused memory foam that works to keep you cool. It’s followed by 2 ½ centimeters of quilted memory foam for added comfort. Finally, a layer of natural latex at the bottom of the Euro top gives the mattress excellent bounce and compliments the layers of memory foam very well.
To ensure you don’t miss out on proper edge support in the comfort layer, reinforced sidewalls are in place. We’ll take a look at how well they work a little further down. But, first, let’s transition into the support layers.
3. Solid Support with High-Dense Memory Foams and Coil Unit
Below the latex is a 5-centimetre layer of DreamPlush supporting memory foam. It focuses on deep contouring support and builds up to the next 1 ½ centimetres of super-dense memory foam designed to keep your back in alignment and cradle your spine regardless of sleep position.
The bulk of this product is found in layer seven with the patent-pending BestRest coils. The five-zoned, foam-encased pocketed micro coil compression system did an excellent job supporting both myself and my sleep partner. I also thought it did a fantastic job of working with the layers above to offer a unique comfort balance. It’s constructed to create a slightly firmer-than-average product that still allows those who don’t carry much weight to enjoy the comfort layers.
Finally, DreamCloud reinforces proper alignment with a 4-centimetre layer of high-density, super soft memory foam. I found the combination of memory foam, coils, and latex to be quite innovative. This is the first product that my sleep partner and I both gave a thumbs-up (a rare honour!).
If you have a sleep partner and need something that will accommodate different body types or preferences, I strongly recommend the DreamCloud mattress.
4. Five-Zoned Coils for Even Support and Pressure Point Relief
Most of the support offered by DreamCloud is found in the coil unit and it incorporates zoning to ensure that the areas of your body that carry more weight are supported accordingly. (Keep reading for a closer look at sinkage in various areas when we cover firmness to show you this zoning in action).
I appreciated the way the five-zoned coils worked to ensure my body was well supported according to where I carry the most weight. This in itself makes you feel weightless, yet supported. I think it could be especially beneficial for people who carry a lot of weight.
DreamCloud Mattress Performance
Now that you’ve had the grand tour of the inside of the DreamCloud mattress, let’s talk in a little more detail about how it feels to lay on. The best way I can describe the feeling is strong but gentle.
Supportive, Soft, Weightless Feel
The memory foam definitely adds contour, but it doesn’t feel like any memory foam that you may be used to. If you’re looking for a memory foam product that accentuates that sinking feeling, you may be a little disappointed. While there are several layers of memory foam, they are all relatively thin in relation to the coil unit. Combined with the quick-response latex, this is better suited for shoppers who want to avoid sinkage without compromising contour.
I’ve tried quite a few mattresses and DreamCloud offers a unique approach to memory foam that I’m highly impressed with as a long time memory foam fan. To summarize feel in three words: this mattress is supportive, soft, and weightless. That’s true whether you weigh 130 pounds or over 200 based on the two weeks my sleep partner and I spent on the DreamCloud mattress.
Firmness and Sinkage Expectations
You don’t get a firmness option with the DreamCloud mattress. In most cases, I’d say this is a negative feature for those needing a high degree of customization. However, the construction of this mattress made it very comfortable for my sleep partner and I. I prefer a plush mattress, while he likes it firm. However, in an unprecedented sleep experience, we both thought that the DreamCloud offered the right comfort and support to meet our separate needs. DreamCloud rates their firmness as 6 out of 10 with one being a feather and ten being a concrete floor.
To make this a little more clear, I’ll demonstrate how it measures up to standard medium-firm products. Of the medium mattresses I’ve tried, I sink in about 6 ½ inches standing upright. You’ll notice that when I stand on the top and bottom of the DreamCloud, I sink in about 6 inches. In the middle, sinkage is around 6 ½ inches. The slightly deeper sinkage in the middle reflects the mattress zoning, and it allows more give in the heavier areas of the body. Based on these numbers, this product is a little firmer than a medium, so I’d agree with their 6/10 rating.
Motion Transfer Reduction
Where coils typically excel in terms of breathability and edge support, they often lack when it comes to motion transfer reduction, especially products featuring continuous coils. However, DreamCloud counters this with two great features:
- Coils are both individually-wrapped and foam encased. Pressure on one area doesn’t have the domino effect of continuous coils, ensuring that your sleep partner isn’t disturbed when you move around.
- The many layers of memory foam in the comfort layer work to absorb motion and keep your mattress stable.
Considering the great edge support and the fact that there is no weight limit on the DreamCloud mattress, this is one of my top-picks for sleep partners and those who carry a lot of weight.
Heat Reduction Capabilities
With such a strong dependence on memory foam, I was impressed with the results of our heat transfer test. Traditional memory foam was infamous for absorbing heat. However, DreamCloud incorporated some features that keep you sleeping cool:
- The gel-infusion of the first memory foam layer works to trap body heat.
- Coil units are breathable by design.
- Latex is naturally breathable.
See how it worked for yourself. I laid on my DreamCloud for a half hour in a 64-degree Fahrenheit room and observed the cooldown process using my thermal imaging camera. This takes, on average, 10 minutes, but DreamCloud cooled off in nine.
I had no problem with hot sleeping, and I would suspect that the average person won’t have to worry about sleep interruptions due to hot sleeping with this product.
If you’re reading this, you’re likely looking for a long-term sleep solution, and DreamCloud is definitely built to deliver. Some of the many reasons to believe it will stand the test of time include:
- Double-tufting, which ties the cashmere blend cover to the memory foam base.
- Use of natural latex.
- Use of high-dense memory foams.
- Strong coil unit.
If you carry a lot of weight and have struggled in the past with the development of indents, I think the investment in DreamCloud is one you’ll appreciate for a long time.
Edge support keeps us supported when we sit or lay on the edge. If you weigh a lot, it can be difficult to find a product capable of keeping you adequately supported near the edge. It can also make transitioning in and out of bed difficult, a major hindrance for those with mobility issues. If this describes something you struggle with, then the DreamCloud is for you! This mattress has excellent edge support. You can see in the pictures that I am very well supported in various areas and positions on the edge.
This is facilitated by the foam-encased outer edge and coil unit. Products made entirely of foam often lack in edge support, and I typically recommend an innerspring unit when edge support is of high importance.
Maintenance, Protection, Care and Warranty
If you carry a lot of weight, need to sleep cool, or have a sleep partner, there are certainly some features of this mattress that you will appreciate. Best of all, DreamCloud offers one of the best trial periods that I’ve come across, with a full 365 nights to try out their product.

DreamCloud Reviews and Feedback
There are so many great features, and DreamCloud ranks among my top contenders in terms of overall comfort and support. I think they really nailed it on the coil, memory foam, and natural latex construction. You’ll be impressed by how the mattress is able to offer strong support, yet feel gentle in it’s comfort layer.

Who We Recommend the DreamCloud Mattress For
If you’re just skimming or want a breakdown of who we recommend this mattress for, I’d say it could offer what you’re looking for in a sleep product if:
- You’re looking for a long-lasting sleep solution.
- You carry a lot of weight.
- You have a sleep partner and need something with good edge support and motion isolation.
- You like memory foam but don’t want to worry about sinking in or sleeping too hot.
Our Final Verdict
I love the support that I get from this mattress while still benefiting from the memory foam’s famous contour. The DreamCloud mattress is pretty heavy. The queen-sized model weighs in at 94 pounds. I was able to unbox mine by myself, but it did take some effort.
If you don’t want to deal with that, DreamCloud does offer optional white glove delivery. This includes setup in the room of your choice and the removal of your old mattress. If you move, make sure you have someone around to help. Moving this thing once it’s out of the box is pretty tough. However, considering the quality, I would consider this to be a minor and temporary inconvenience. DreamCloud really does sell a luxury hybrid mattress despite the fact that you can get it at a mere third of the price of the competition.
