DreamCloud and Layla are both popular mattresses, but with very different constructions. Both can be purchased online. This post will compare the two to help you determine which is a better fit for your sleep style and needs.
- Both have a similar business model.
- Both incorporate memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- Both have free shipping, generous sleep trials, and great customer service.
- Layla is all foam while DreamCloud incorporates coils in the support layer.
- Layla infuses its mattress with copper, which the company says the metal absorbs heat to keep sleepers cool throughout the night.
- DreamCloud costs more. ($499-$999 for Layla, about $1,000-$1,700 for DreamCloud)
- DreamCloud is thicker (DreamCloud is 15 inches thick, Layla is 10.5 inches)
- Layla is flippable, with a softer side and a firmer side. DreamCloud comes in only one firmness option.
- Layla offers a 120-night trial, DreamCloud a 365-night trial.
- DreamCloud overall is firmer than either side of the Layla
- DreamCloud has more layers than most mattresses, and many of those layers are of relatively narrow thickness.
- DreamCloud has a True Tufted™ Cashmere Top, which features hand-sewn tufts that give it a Eurotop feel.
- The top foam layer is .39 inches (1 centimeter) of gel-infused memory foam.
- Next is 1.77 inches (4.5 centimeters) of quilted memory foam, split into two layers of 2 centimeters and 2.5 centimeters.
- A .39-inch (1 centimeter) layer of natural latex contributes gives DreamCloud some of its bounce.
- Next is 1.97 inches (5 centimeters) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam.
- A .59 inch-layer (1.5 centimeters) of super dense, super soft memory foam comes before the thick layer of pocketed coils.
- The thickest layer is a 7.87-inch (20 centimeters) layer of individually pocketed “BestRest” coils that come in two levels of resistance. The different coil types are placed in five comfort zones to ensure the right kind of support for the right part of your body.
- The base layer is 1.6 inches (5 centimeters) of high density super soft memory foam base.
- The cover has a thermo-gel finish that keeps cooling gel close to the body.
- The top layer of the soft side is made up of 3 inches of copper-infused memory foam.
- Below that is a 2 inch layer of convoluted air flow foam, which is foam that is textured to allow air flow.
- The base layer is 4.5 inches of 2 lb density foam and is pretty standard amongst all-foam mattresses available online.
- The alternative comfort layer on the other side is 1 inch of copper-infused memory foam.
- DreamCloud has coils, while Layla is all foam. This could make the mattress more appropriate for heavier sleepers
- DreamCloud has more layers and is thicker and more supportive.
- Both mattresses are durable, but DreamCloud’s coils may make it a little more durable.
- Both are constructed to ensure neutral temperature.
- Both use memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- Layla is flippable so it offers more firmness options.
Layla’s soft side is softer than DreamCloud, while the firm side is similarly firm as DreamCloud but has a little less bounce and spring.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both isolate motion pretty well, but not perfectly. The softer side of Layla does a better job at this than the more firm side and than DreamCloud.
Pick DreamCloud If:
You like spring mattresses– If traditional spring mattresses have worked for you in the past, you might like DreamCloud more than an all-foam alternative.
You sleep on your stomach or back– While Layla’s firm side is also quite firm, DreamCloud is a little firmer, and its thickness and springs mean it will give stomach and back sleepers better support.
You can afford luxury– DreamCloud is thick with a cashmere hand-tufted top. If you want to spend on luxury, DreamCloud can give you that at a luxury-level price.
Pick Layla If:
You like memory foam– Both DreamCloud and Layla incorporate memory foam, but Layla has more of a memory foam feel, especially on its soft side.
You sleep on your side– Layla’s firm side isn’t quite as firm as DreamCloud, and its soft side is definitely softer. Layla will better conform to your contours, making it a better option if you sleep on your side.
You are on a budget– Layla is a lot less expensive than DreamCloud, so it’s more affordable.
Both these options can work for sleepers who prefer firm mattresses, but there are some significant differences between Layla and DreamCloud. I hope this post has helped you better understand which brand will work better for you. If you have specific questions about either mattress, please leave them in the comments.
