DreamCloud and Avocado are both luxury coil-foam hybrid mattresses sold online. This post will compare them so you can determine which is a better option for you.
- Both offer pillow-tops and use individually pocketed coils.
- Both are relatively firm and offer thicker options.
- Both are durable and should be long-lasting investments.
- They’re similarly priced ($959 to $2,199 for Avocado, about $1,000 to $1,700 for DreamCloud).
- Both offer free shipping and great customer service.
- Avocado offers a wider range of firmness options (11″ or 13″ for Avocado, while DreamCloud only comes in one 14″ option).
- Avocado’s pillow-top is optional.
- Avocado differentiates itself with natural materials.
- DreamCloud offers a 365-night trial compared to Avocado’s 100-night trial.
- DreamCloud’s pillow-top is a bit more luxurious.
- DreamCloud uses memory foam, while Avocado does not.
- DreamCloud has a uniquely complex structure.
- The mattress gets a luxurious Eurotop feel from its True Tufted™ Cashmere Top, which features hand-sewn tufts.
- The top three layers are memory foam. First is a 0.39″ layer (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam. This is followed by 1.77″ (4.5 cm) of quilted memory foam, split into a 2-cm and 2.5-cm sheet.
- A thin 0.39″ (1 cm) layer of natural latex gives the mattress some bounce.
- Another two layers of memory foam follow. First is a 1.97″ (5 cm) layer of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam. Then comes a 0.59″ layer (1.5 cm) of super dense, super soft memory foam.
- The support layer is a 7.87″ (20 cm) thick section of individually pocketed “BestRest” coils. These coils come in two levels of resistance and are strategically placed in five comfort zones to ensure your body is appropriately supported.
- The base layer is 1.6″ (5 cm) of high-density, super soft memory foam base.
- Avocado has a button-tufted cover made with 100 percent organic cotton. It is breathable and soft to the touch.
- The comfort layer on top is made of natural dunlop latex. In the original 11″ version, this is three inches thick, but the pillow-top 13″ version of Avocado adds two inches. This is a very durable material that provides good pressure relief and great bounce.
- The support layer includes a system of individually wrapped coils that are zoned to give you extra support where you need it most. This advanced, durable coil system is great for heavier sleepers.
- Avocado has a simpler construction.
- Both are breathable and sleep cool throughout the night.
- Both offer pillow-tops.
- Both have thick layers of individually pocketed coils.
- Avocado will have more bounce to it because of the natural latex in the comfort layer.
- In both mattresses, coils are strategically placed to ensure optimal support.
- DreamCloud has more layers.
- DreamCloud has memory foam, while Avocado is more latex-centric.
These are both pretty firm mattresses, but DreamCloud’s hand-tufted pillow-top gives it a unique surface feel.
Motion Transfer Differences
The videos below demonstrate how well the mattresses isolate motion. Avocado isolates motion a bit better than DreamCloud, but both do a respectable job.
Pick DreamCloud If …
- You want a firmer mattress- Both DreamCloud and Avocado are firm, but DreamCloud is a touch firmer. This could make it more appropriate for back and/or stomach sleepers.
- You want a more traditional mattress feel- DreamCloud’s hand-tufted pillow-top and memory foam with coils give it a more traditional spring mattress feel.
Pick Avocado If …
- You want more natural materials- Avocado uses natural materials such as natural latex, organic cotton, and wool.
- You want a bouncier mattress- Avocado’s latex top layer gives it a lot of bounce and resilience.
- You want options- Avocado lets you choose between its firmer 11″ version and a softer version with the added pillow-top.
These are fairly similar options, but their contrasts do make a difference. I hope you found this comparison helpful. Please leave any specific questions in the comments.
