DreamCloud and Sapira are both relatively firm mattresses that can be purchased online. The mattresses have a few things in common, but certain details give them different feels. This post compares the two options to help you determine which better aligns with your sleep preferences.
- Both options are relatively firm and incorporate memory foam somewhere in the construction.
- Both incorporate springs in the support layer.
- Options are similarly priced ($995 to $1,795 Sapira; about $1,000 to $1,700 for DreamCloud).
- Both offer free shipping and have great customer service.
- DreamCloud has a couple more luxury features.
- DreamCloud is thicker. (DreamCloud is 15″ thick; Sapira is 11″ thick.)
- DreamCloud offers a longer trial at 365 nights, compared to 100 nights for Sapira.
- While both are firm, Sapira is slightly softer.
- Sapira has a more straightforward construction than DreamCloud does.
- DreamCloud is comprised of many relatively thin layers.
- On top is a Eurotop-like True Tufted™ Cashmere Top that features hand-sewn tufts.
- The first foam layer is 0.39″ (1 cm) of gel-infused memory foam.
- Next are two layers of quilted memory foam that together comprise 1.77″ (4.5 cm).
- Giving the mattress additional bounce is a 0.39″ (1 cm) layer of natural latex.
- A thicker layer (1.97″ or 5 cm) of “Dreamplush” supporting memory foam comes toward the middle.
- Then there is a thin layer (0.59″ or 1.5 cm) of super dense, super soft memory foam.
- The thickest layer is a 7.87″ (20 cm) layer of individually pocketed “BestRest” coils that come in two levels of resistance. The different coil types are strategically placed across 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.
- On top is 1.5″ of breathable Avena foam. This layer helps ensure cool sleeping and gives the mattress some bounce.
- Sandwiched in the middle is a 1.5″ layer of memory foam, giving the mattress a contouring quality and offering sleepers pressure relief.
- A pair of 1″ layers of stabilizing foam sandwich a layer of springs, and together these layers form a supportive base that fills out the rest of the mattress’s 11″ thickness. The springs have extra reinforcement on the edge, giving the bed amazing edge support overall.
- Both have coils as the support system that are very supportive overall.
- DreamCloud uses a wider variety of materials and has thinner layers.
- DreamCloud has a more complex construction with more bells and whistles.
- DreamCloud’s pillow-top, thickness, and cashmere cover give it more of a luxury feel.
- Both use memory foam.
- Sapira conforms to contours a little better because it is a little softer and because it has a flat (not pillow-) top.
- DreamCloud uses more proprietary materials.
Both are firm, have a lot of bounce, and return to shape quickly after pressure is applied. However, DreamCloud is just a little firmer.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both isolate motion pretty well, but keep in mind both are firm — so there is still some transfer.
Pick DreamCloud If …
- You sleep on your stomach or back- DreamCloud is a little firmer, potentially making it more appropriate for back and stomach sleepers.
- You like luxury- DreamCloud has a pillow-top, is thicker, and has a cashmere cover. Overall it has a luxurious feel that you would find at beds in higher-end hotels.
Pick Sapira If …
- You want great edge support- Sapira is firm, flat, and has a layer of spring sandwiched by foam layers. These components contribute to it having perhaps the best edge support I’ve ever seen.
- You sleep on your side- Sapira is just a little softer than DreamCloud and conforms better to contours, potentially making it more appropriate for side sleepers.
This is a pair of firm mattresses sold at similar prices. When you drill into the details, though, each has a unique feel that will appeal to different types of sleepers. I hope you found this helpful. Please leave any specific questions in the comments.
