With so many mattress topper options from Dreamfoam and other brands, it’s important to see each topper in action to understand how it will perform and actually impact the feel of your bed.

Who Might Like The Dreamfoam …

  • Back sleepers. For those who sleep primarily on their back, the Dreamfoam could potentially be a great option. It conforms well to the curves of the body and also lets the hips sink in while pressing up into the lumbar area. Back sleepers should be very comfortable on the Dreamfoam and have a great experience overall.
  • Side sleepers. For those looking to add some additional pressure relief to the mattress, the Dreamfoam should work quite well. It softens the mattress a fair amount, meaning there should be less pressure on the shoulders and hips. Side sleepers of all sizes should feel an increase in pressure relief.
  • Those who like a memory foam feel. Fans of that classic memory foam feel should like the Dreamfoam. It has that soft, slow-moving feel where the body slowly sinks in and the topper conforms well to the body’s curves.
  • Those looking for a value option. The Dreamfoam is currently priced at $67 for a Queen-size topper, which is a very low price considering how comfortable this memory foam mattress topper is. Those who want to add a memory foam feel to their mattress but don’t want to break the bank should strongly consider the Dreamfoam.

Who Might Not Like The Dreamfoam …

  • Stomach sleepers. The Dreamfoam does add some noticeable softness to a mattress. Those who sleep on their stomach might feel less support on the hips. Because of this, the hips might dip into the mattress and take the body out of alignment, potentially leading to back pain.
  • Those who don’t like a memory foam feel. The Dreamfoam has that very soft, memory foam feel that resembles quicksand. For those who don’t prefer this feel on your mattress, the Dreamfoam won’t be the most ideal choice.
  • Those worried about getting stuck in the mattress. For those who have mobility issues or have issues moving around on the mattress for other reasons, the Dreamfoam might not work well. Its soft memory foam is not very fast to respond, so it might make it even more difficult to change positions.

Construction And Options

  • The Dreamfoam is 2″ thick, and is made of a very soft, open-celled memory foam. The open-celled design helps with breathability and prevents the topper from overheating.
  • The memory foam is infused with gel to help with cooling and temperature regulation and forms a gel swirl that extends throughout the topper.
  • The foam is CertiPUR-US certified, meaning it is more eco-friendly than conventional foams.
  • DreamFoam also offers a model without gel as well as a Talalay latex topper.
  • The topper is available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Full XL, Queen, Short Queen, King, and California King.

My Experience

After receiving my Dreamfoam mattress topper in the mail, I immediately opened it and placed it on the mattress in my guest room. There was some initial chemical smell, so I opened the windows and allowed the topper to off-gas for a few days. After that, the smell was gone.

In addition, I will note that the topper did take some time to fully expand. The memory foam is very soft, so I would recommend giving it at least two days to reach its full form.

To test out the firmness of the Dreamfoam, I placed it on a mattress with a firmness level of 8/10. With the Dreamfoam on top, the mattress felt like a 6.5/10. To me, it feels like the Dreamfoam is subtracting around 1.5 points of firmness. I can say this topper softened the mattress more than the many other toppers I’ve tried.

I also wanted to test out how the Dreamfoam improved or worsened how I felt while in different sleeping positions. Here’s how I felt while lying on the topper:

  • While lying on my back, the Dreamfoam was a fantastic experience. The foam conformed to the curves of my body and pressed up into my lumbar area. For those who have a firmer mattress, the Dreamfoam could really be a nice addition for back sleepers.
  • When I moved to my side, I felt some added pressure relief on my shoulders and hips. Even as a heavier person, I did feel better sleeping on my side overall. I will note that lighter-weight side sleepers should feel even better pressure relief as they won’t press in quite as far.
  • Finally, while lying on my stomach, the topper was definitely too soft for me. As a larger person, I usually need a good amount of support when I am stomach sleeping. With the Dreamfoam on top of this mattress, I don’t feel significant support on my hips. Because of this, I feel my hips bowing in and taking me out of neutral spinal alignment.

Dreamfoam Memory Foam Mattress Topper Sleeping

The Dreamfoam has that classic memory foam feel that is soft and fairly slow to respond. After lying down, I feel myself slowly sink into the topper.

I did have some difficulty moving around when I was on the Dreamfoam. While trying to switch positions, I would sometimes feel stuck in the memory foam.

Also, a major drawback of memory foam is that it can potentially trap heat. Dreamfoam tries to combat that issue with open-celled memory foam and gel. The topper does feel cool to the touch and it doesn’t sleep quite as hot as some other memory foam mattress toppers I’ve tried. That being said, it did have me sleeping a bit warmer, which is a potential issue to note.


The Dreamfoam is a value mattress topper that could be a great match for back and side sleepers. However, stomach sleepers and those who don’t like the memory foam feel might want to look elsewhere. The Dreamfoam comes with a 30-night trial and a 3-year warranty.
