DreamCloud and Saatva both sell mattresses online, and you can find relatively firm options from either seller. This post compares options to help you determine which you would prefer.
- Both sellers have firm options.
- Both incorporate memory foam.
- Both incorporate springs.
- Both offer thicker options.
- Both have pillow-tops.
- Both offer free shipping.
- Saatva offers different firmness options.
- Saatva is less expensive ($599 to $1,399 for Saatva; about $1,000 to $1,700 for DreamCloud).
- Saatva offers thinner options. (DreamCloud’s mattress is 15″ thick; Saatva offers thicknesses of 14.5″ and 11.5″.)
- Saatva uses coil-on-coil technology and has two layers of coils.
- DreamCloud offers a longer trial at 365 nights. Saatva’s trial is 120 nights.
- While both are firm, Saatva’s firmest option is a little softer than DreamCloud.
- DreamCloud has many relatively thin layers.
- The Eurotop-like True Tufted™ Cashmere Top features hand-sewn tufts.
- The first layer is comprised of 0.39″ (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam.
- Next are two layers of quilted memory foam that together are 1.77″ (4.5 cm).
- Giving the mattress additional bounce is a 0.39″ (1 cm) layer of natural latex.
- Toward the middle is a thicker layer (1.97″ or 5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam.
- A thin layer (0.59″ or 1.5 cm) of super dense, super soft memory foam comes before the coil layer.
- Toward the bottom of the mattress is a 7.87″ (20 cm) 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 different parts of your body.
- The bottommost layer is 1.6″ (5 cm) of high-density, super soft memory foam base.
- Saatva comes in thicknesses of 14.5″ and 11.5″. Its three firmness levels have similar constructions.
- A Eurotop-style pillow-top provides extra cushion on the mattress surface. The cover is made of organic cotton.
- Individually wrapped comfort coils and a layer of memory foam in the middle layer of the mattress adapt to the contours of your body, relieving pressure.
- Below that is a second layer of coils. This is a steel coil base made with tempered steel coils that gives the mattress support and durability and prevents sagging.
- The edges of the mattress are encased in supportive foam that reinforces the structure and durability of the mattress.
- Both have coils, but Saatva has an extra layer of them (coil-on-coil construction).
- DreamCloud uses a wider variety of materials and has thinner layers.
- DreamCloud has more layers.
- DreamCloud’s pillow-top is a little more pillowy.
- Both use memory foam.
- Both have luxury features.
- Saatva incorporates organic cotton.
- Saatva’s firmest option is a little softer than DreamCloud.
- DreamCloud uses more proprietary materials.
The videos below show the firmness and feel of DreamCloud and Saatva’s firmest option. The Saatva mattress is a little softer than DreamCloud. Both options return to shape quickly after pressure is applied.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both isolate motion pretty well, but note that Saatva has multiple firmness options. Softer options tend to absorb motion better than firmer options, so keep that in mind when considering softer options from Saatva.
Pick DreamCloud If …
- You sleep on your stomach or back. DreamCloud is a little firmer, which might make it more appropriate for back and/or stomach sleepers (although you do have the option of getting the Firm version of the Saatva).
- You want more luxury finishes. Both mattresses have luxury features, but DreamCloud has a few extra special details, such as its hand-tufted pillow-top that is more pillowy than Saatva’s pillow-top.
Pick Saatva If …
- You sleep on your side. The luxury firm model is a little softer than DreamCloud, and other options are even softer and conform better to contours.
- You want more options. Saatva comes in more thickness and firmness options.
Both brands have some similar options, but overall they’re likely to appeal to different sleepers. I hope this comparison helped you determine which better suits your needs. Specific questions are welcomed in the comments.
