DreamCloud and Loom & Leaf are both companies that sell mattresses online. While the mattresses from these companies have some similarities, they’ll appeal to different sleepers. We’ll break down how they compare in this post with the construction details and the main takeaways.
- Both are relatively firm options that also incorporate memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- Both offer free shipping and have great customer service.
- Loom & Leaf is all-foam, while DreamCloud incorporates coils in the support layer.
- Loom & Leaf is less expensive ($649 to $1,499 for Loom & Leaf; about $1,000 to $1,700 for DreamCloud).
- Loom & Leaf incorporates materials that are supposed to be environmentally friendly (bio-based foams, for example).
- DreamCloud is more of a luxury option and has more bells and whistles.
- DreamCloud is thicker overall. (DreamCloud is 15″ thick; Loom & Leaf is 12″)
- DreamCloud offers a longer trial at 365 nights, compared to 120 nights for Loom & Leaf.
- DreamCloud has a complex construction of several relatively thin layers.
- Before the foam layers begin, DreamCloud has a True Tufted™ Cashmere Top that features hand-sewn tufts. This gives the mattress a Eurotop feel.
- The first foam layer is 0.39″ (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam.
- Next come two layers of quilted memory foam totaling 1.77″ (4.5 cm) that gives the mattress extra pressure relief and body contouring.
- A thin layer of natural latex (0.39″ or 1 cm) contributes bounce and resilience, as well as breathability.
- Then more memory foam, this time approximately 2″ (5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam .
- Another thin layer (0.59″ or 1.5 cm) of super-dense, super-soft memory foam comes next.
- An almost 8″ (20 cm) coil layer comprises DreamCloud’s thickest layer. Individually pocketed “BestRest” coils in two levels of resistance are positioned in five comfort zones to ensure the right kind of support for the right part of your body.
- On the bottom is 1.6″ (5 cm) of high-density, super-soft memory foam that the support coils can rest on.
Loom & Leaf Construction
- Loom & Leaf has a simpler construction that consists on four distinct foam layers.
- The cover is made of organic cotton and doesn’t affect the overall feel of the mattress significantly.
- On top is a 2″ layer comprised of a combination of gel foams. The main foam uses what Loom & Leaf calls a “gel-swirl” construction to evenly distribute temperature. Laminated on top of this gel is a special spinal panel that uses a cooling gel found in burn units of hospitals.
- The first of the middle two layers is 2.5″ memory foam that Loom & Leaf says is more environmentally friendly than standard memory foam.
- The second of the middle two layers is a 2″ transition foam layer to act as a buffer between the memory foam layers and the base foam.
- The 5.5″ base layer consists of a dense support foam that is pretty standard in the industry.
- DreamCloud is a combination spring/foam mattress, while Loom & Leaf is all foam.
- DreamCloud has a more complicated construction.
- DreamCloud is thicker and potentially more supportive of heavier weights as a result.
- DreamCloud is a little more durable because it uses coils in the support layer.
- DreamCloud has a Eurotop-like pillow-top.
- Both use memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- DreamCloud is just a bit firmer and bouncier.
- Loom & Leaf has more of a memory foam feel.
Both mattresses are relatively firm, but DreamCloud is a little firmer than Loom & Leaf and has a different feel because of its pillow-top. Both return to shape quickly.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both isolate motion pretty well, but Loom & Leaf has a bit of an edge, probably owing to its more memory foam-like consistency.
Pick DreamCloud If …
- You sleep on your stomach or back- DreamCloud is just a little firmer than Loom & Leaf, so it may be more appropriate for people who sleep just on their back or stomach. It should provide adequate spinal support in these positions for most sleepers.
- You want extra luxury- DreamCloud has a cashmere, hand-tufted pillow-top and is super thick. It gives off a true luxury feel with all the different components.
- You like spring mattresses. For those who have had success with more traditional spring mattresses, DreamCloud may be a better option than an all-foam alternative.
Pick Loom & Leaf If …
- You sleep on your side. Loom & Leaf is on the firmer end of the spectrum, but it nonetheless has a memory foam feel and conforms well to contours. I believe it is slightly softer than the DreamCloud as well, which makes it generally more appropriate for side sleepers.
- You like to sink into your mattress. You’ll sink into Loom & Leaf’s more quicksand-like combination of memory and gel foams.
- You are on a budget. Loom & Leaf is less expensive, so it gives you the opportunity to save a little bit more money than the DreamCloud does.
Loom & Leaf and DreamCloud share some of the same appeal, but ultimately each will be more attractive to different people. Hopefully this post helps you decide which you might prefer. Consumers should read through this comparison a few times, assess their own preferences and needs, and then make a more informed decision.
