The DreamCloud mattress is a 15″ hybrid bed with a super soft Cashmere top that features hand tufting. DreamCloud is all about providing an overall feeling of luxury at an affordable price.
Right now this is the only model offered by DreamCloud and it feels little firmer than average (my assessment, at least!) So how does it hold up and is it right for you? Read on for my comprehensive review of this new mattress.
The team at DreamCloud recommends this bed for all sleep positions. A 6.5-7 out of 10 is around average firmness for a mattress and will probably appeal to the largest group.
My personal take on the comfort level is that it’s a little bit firmer than average – it felt closer to a 7.5 out of 10 for me.
Mattress Construction & Durability
Here are the layers of the mattress. They were provided in centimeters but I converted them to inches as well.
True Tufted™ Cashmere Top: Eurotop feel
.39″ (1 cm) Gel-infused memory foam
1.77″ (4.5 cm) Quilted memory foam – in two layers of 2 cm and 2.5cm
.39″ (1 cm) Natural latex
1.97″ (5 cm) Dreamplush supporting memory foam
.59″ (1.5 cm) Super dense super soft memory foam
7.87″ (20 cm) Five-zoned “BestRest” coils
1.6″ (5 cm) High density super soft memory foam base
The coil system is made up of individually pocketed coils with two different coil resistance levels. The coils are strategically placed in five comfort zones around the shoulders, back, hips, legs, and head for maximum support and added comfort.
You Might Like DreamCloud Mattress If…
You sleep on your stomach. This mattress is described as “Luxury Firm,” and to me, it feels like a 7.5 out of 10 to me rather than a 6.5 out of 10. The firmer the mattress the better it tends to be for stomach sleepers because it can help support your stomach and keep your spine in neutral alignment.
You sleep with a partner. This is an especially good fit if both of you like a firmer mattress. The edge support is enhanced by the foam encasement around the mattress and lets you maximize your surface area. The motion transfer is about average and lighter sleepers might notice more movement than deeper sleepers.
You want that Eurotop feel but you’re on a budget. The Cashmere cover and hand tufted Eurotop definitely give a luxurious feel to this firmer mattress. Typically, these features are associated with more expensive brands but this mattress is more affordably priced.
You Might Not Like DreamCloud Mattress If…
You sleep on your side. As I mentioned in other sections of the review, the mattress is on the firmer side, which means it might feel too supportive, even at the top layers to keep you comfortable in that position all night.
You’re a shorter individual. This mattress is already pretty tall at 15″ and if you add a box spring and a bed frame it could become an issue getting in and out of bed if you’re shorter than average. I’m 5′ 7″ and used a lower profile box spring and the mattress was just about as tall as I’d like it – any taller and I’d be climbing into the bed.
You love sleeping “in” your mattress as opposed to “on” it. The mattress is a hybrid and features a larger coil system that helps it stay firm and supportive. Even with the multiple thin layers of memory foam (and latex) on top, you won’t sink into the bed like you would with a 100% memory foam bed. The first few layers in the Eurotop feel the softest but you’ll still feel like you’re sleeping “on” the mattress as opposed to sinking into it.

Firmness & Feel
DreamCloud says their mattress is Luxury Firm and about a 6.5/10 on the firmness scale. Typically a 6.5-7/10 is average firmness and the comfort level that pleases the most sleepers.
Based on my experience and the interesting grouping of layers on top of the large coil system, I think this bed is even a little firmer than average. I’d say it is closer to a 7.5 out of 10.
The mattress is also on the more responsive side. Check out the video below to see how the firmness and overall feel of the mattress.
This hybrid mattress features individually pocketed coils, which helps even out weight distribution across the bed but also adds a little spring/bounce. The foam layers on top have a more responsive feel, probably thanks to the spring of the coils and the natural latex layer.
As you can see from the video, the motion isolation is about average.
The edge support is immediately noticeable on the DreamCloud mattress. Part of the reason for this is the nearly 8″ coil system that provides support and the reinforced foam sidewalls around the bed as well.
From the photo below, you can see that while the initial foam layers do compress at the top. That being said, I don’t feel that I’m sliding off the edge of the bed.
What Makes This Mattress Stand Out?
Based on my experience with the DreamCloud, there are a few features that make this mattress stand out.
I thought the edge support was really excellent in the DreamCloud mattress. This has a lot to do with the large coil system and the foam encased outer edge.
The optional one-time professional mattress cleaning and “like new” conditioning available with the mattress is a nice perk.
It’s a nice option for those who prioritize the “luxury” feel of a hand-tufted mattress but are on a budget.
The DreamCloud mattress is well suited for individuals or couples who are looking for a firmer hybrid mattress that has a luxurious feel to it. It’s not the cheapest bed-in-a-box hybrid, but it may be difficult to find handcrafted features and Cashmere in other mattresses at this price point. The 365-night trial is a long time to see if it’s a good fit – which is a nice perk!
