We've reviewed thick mattresses on SleepDelivered before, but the DreamCloud mattress is our first 15-incher.

This is as thick as the best Stearns & Foster, Beautyrest Black and other luxury brands.

But the DreamCloud costs a whole lot less 😉

The DreamCloud is a 15″ thick quilted-top, super-comfortable luxury hybrid mattress that uses memory foam for pressure relief, a pocketed coil spring layer for durable support and natural foams to add a little bounce.

My husband and I are really impressed with this one.  We keep it in our second master bedroom.

The Dreamcloud is definitely not perfect for everyone, though.  For example, they only offer one comfort level which is on the firmer side.

Still interested?

Then keep reading to learn if the DreamCloud mattress is right for you!  (NOTE: this review reflects their latest updated design.)

Note: To compare DreamCloud with other luxury mattresses we've reviewed, read my best mattress guide.

About DreamCloud Sleep

DreamCloud Mattress Review

DreamCloud is made by DreamCloud Holdings LLC.

The company launched in 2016 and has already expanded to several countries.

DreamCloud Holdings also manufactures the excellent Nectar mattress, another of our favorites.

Social Impact

The company hasn't announced any major charities or social giving causes, yet. But it's still early.

That said, they do keep your health and our environment in mind: DreamCloud uses only CertiPur-US certified foams to ensure their products are safe for users and the environment.

Purchase Process

Dreamcloud mattress review - order form

The DreamCloud is sold exclusively on DreamCloud Sleep’s official website. You will not find it in brick and mortar stores nor on major retailer sites like Amazon.

The purchase process couldn't be simpler.

There are no comfort options, so all you have to choose is size. Unfortunately, Twin and Twin XL sizes are currently not available.

Just add your mattress size to the cart and pay via credit card – or check if you qualify for DreamCloud’s lease-to-own 6-month financing (no credit check).

Shipping is free for the continental US, while Alaskan and Hawaiian customers pay extra for shipping.

Your DreamCloud should arrive within 5 days via FedEx (unless otherwise specified on the site).

There is also the option of adding white glove delivery to your order for an additional charge.

365 Night In-Home Trial

DreamCloud Mattress Review

Most online mattresses offer a trial period lasting maybe 100-120 days.

But when you buy a DreamCloud mattress, you have a whole year to test it out. That’s right: 365 nights.

At any time during this period, you can return the mattress at no cost if you don’t like it. The company will arrange a pickup and either donate the mattress or recycle it. You’ll get a full refund.

Note: Returns are free for customers in Alaska, Hawaii and all US territories.

At this time you cannot request a mattress exchange, because there are no other comfort options available.

↑ Table of Contents


Everlong Warranty

DreamCloud Mattress Review

DreamCloud sleep guarantees that your mattress will remain in good condition free from defects in quality or materials for as long as you own it.

In other words, you get a lifetime warranty.

The only other two mattresses I know of that offer a lifetime warranties are Nectar (less expensive mattress) and Nest Bedding.

Of course, the usual T&Cs about proper usage and damage apply.

Read their full warranty on the DreamCloud website to learn more.

↑ Table of Contents


Shipping

DreamCloud Mattress Review

The DreamCloud mattress ships free to all customers in the continental US.

For customers in Alaska, Hawaii and US territories, a shipping fee is added at checkout.

Your DreamCloud mattress will arrive in 1-5 days via FedEx. The company will notify you if there are delays.

There is no expedited shipping option.

Delivery and Setup

Unless you pay for white glove delivery, the mattress will be delivered to your door on a forklift hand truck:

DreamCloud Mattress Review - on forklift

The rest is up to you.  Considering how heavy this mattress is (a Cal King weighs 123 lbs), it’s definitely a good idea to have someone around to help you or hire a local handyman service.

If you're receiving this mattress alone, I recommend paying extra for white glove delivery.

When our California King arrived, my husband and I struggled to get this heavy mattress out of its cover and onto our slat bed:

DreamCloud Mattress Review - in roll on bed

With white glove service, the delivery crew will set up the mattress for you – and you can arrange to have your old mattress taken away.

The DreamCloud mattress is delivered rolled and compressed, so it’ll take a few hours for it to expand to its full size.

It's kinda cool to watch it expand:

After it unrolls, you can sleep on this mattress immediately – there's no smell like with other foam mattresses we've tried.

↑ Table of Contents


Foundation & Frame

What type of bed frame/support does DreamCloud require?

The DreamCloud mattress can be used on a basic solid frame, a sturdy non-flexing box spring, a slatted foundation or even directly on the floor.

We put ours on a slatted Italian bed we bought many years ago:

DreamCloud Mattress Review - our test bed

Make sure that the foundation you use is in good condition. If it is old, buy a new one to ensure the mattress has enough support beneath it.

Remember that the wrong foundation will void the lifetime warranty.

Does DreamCloud work on an adjustable bed?

Nope.

↑ Table of Contents


Care & Cleaning

Is a mattress protector needed for DreamCloud?

No, you don’t need to use a mattress protector, but I’d recommend you do. The quilted top is white and will stain.

A mattress protector will prevent spills and stains that could damage the mattress and void the warranty.

Note: the cover is not removable so you can’t just unzip it and wash off any stains.

Do you need to rotate the DreamCloud mattress?

No, not necessary.

↑ Table of Contents


Aesthetics & Styling

DreamCloud Mattress Review

If you want a mattress that makes a statement, DreamCloud is the right choice. The 15” thickness looks imposing and gives it a luxury look.

The top looks puffy because of the Euro pillow top. It is quilted, giving it a nice textured style with grid-like raised squares.

The mattress has a simple two-tone style. It’s white on top and brown on the sides.

There are also blue carrying straps on either side and DreamCloud’s logo on one end.

↑ Table of Contents


Construction

The DreamCloud mattress is constructed using a sophisticated 6-layer hybrid system topped by a luxurious quilted cover.

All of the foams used in the DreamCloud are CertiPUR-US certified.

Quilted Euro Top

The topmost layer gives the DreamCloud mattress its signature plushness. It’s super soft, allowing you to sink comfortably into the mattress.

Technically, the top layer contains the cover plus the first two foam layers of 1″ and o.5″ each, wrapped together in a single unit.

Gel infused memory foam (Comfort Layer)

This material provides 1.5″ of pressure relief and cooling. The memory foam contours around your body to relieve pressure on your hips, shoulders and other pressure points. The gel dissipates excess body heat away from the mattress.

Soft conventional foam (Support Layer)

This 2.5″ thick layer of soft foam provides further compression support and spreads your weight evenly across the mattress.

Pocketed innerspring coil (Support Layer)

The 8″ coil layer forms the support core of the mattress while ensuring you get the contouring you need to sleep comfortably.

The coils also help with airflow and edge support and reduce motion transfer.

High-density conventional foam (Foundation Layer)

A 1.5″ high-density foam base provides overall mattress support and longevity.

↑ Table of Contents


Mattress Cover

DreamCloud Mattress Review - on slats bed

The quilted cover of the DreamCloud is really luxurious. It’s made of polyester, which makes it tear-resistant and soft, plush and durable.

For longevity, the cover is quilted to ensure that the layers inside do not shift with time.

Just note that if you don't use a mattress topper/protector or another sheet layer on this mattress, you may feel the quilting through the top sheet.

Finally, the cover is unfortunately not removable, so you can’t unzip it to clean stains.  I recommend using a mattress protector or an extra sheet or two to keep it clean.

↑ Table of Contents


Smell/Off-Gassing

There might be a slight smell when you first use this mattress, but that’s just because of the ‘fresh’ foams.  It was almost imperceptible to me, though.

The smell is not harmful and fades quickly. Air the mattress out in a well-ventilated room to quicken the off-gassing process.

↑ Table of Contents


Sleeping Experience

DreamCloud Mattress Review

If you want a true luxury hotel mattress experience without paying thousands in a store, then the DreamCloud is a great choice.

From its cashmere tufted cover to the soft memory foams and bouncy pocketed coils beneath, this is one of the most comfortable mattresses you’ll sleep in its price range. It was definitely one of the most comfortable online mattresses we've ever tried.

Because this is a medium-firm mattress (6.5 out of 10, where 10 is the firmest), it will probably meet the needs of most sleepers.

So while the top layer is really soft, you get plenty of supportive pushback from the firmer foam and pocketed coils.

The bounciness of the foam and coils also make it easier to get up from the bed – and make it great for sex (don't ask).

Support is especially great for heavier sleepers.

↑ Table of Contents


Firmness

DreamCloud Mattress Review

DreamCloud only offers one medium firm comfort option. Personally, I found the DreamCloud sleeps a bit firmer than other medium-firm plush-topped mattresses.

But it's perfectly comfortable for most people, regardless of your physique or sleeping position.

I’d rate the DreamCloud's firmness at 6.5-7.0, with 10 being too firm.

↑ Table of Contents


Sinkage

DreamCloud Mattress Review

I think heavier sleepers will love this mattress.  Sinkage will not be a problem.

When you first lie on the DreamCloud, it sinks just a tiny a bit because of the soft layer on top. But your back quickly finds the firmer foam, which provides an outstanding amount of support.

Overall, I found the DreamCloud gave me just the right amount of sinkage to feel both plush and supportive but also let me move around at night with little effort.

The exact sinkage you experience will vary on your sleeping position and body weight. There will be less sinkage if you sleep on your stomach or back compared to when you sleep on your side.

Heavier sleepers will experience more sinkage, but I seriously doubt there's any risk of bottoming-out in this thick beast.

↑ Table of Contents


Motion Transfer

DreamCloud Mattress Review

The DreamCloud mattress has very little motion transfer.

The foam layers at the top do not transfer any disturbance across the bed. The coils, which would normally cause more motion travel, are pocketed which keeps disturbance to a minimum.

In other words, a fidgety partner will not wake you up in the middle of the night.

↑ Table of Contents


Hot/Cold Issues

I experienced ZERO hot sleeping issues with this mattress.

The breathable cover, gel memory foam and pocketed coils appear to do a great job circulating heat and air through the bed.

↑ Table of Contents


Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Quilted Euro Top adds a luxurious feel.
  • Lifetime warranty and 365-night trial period.
  • Outstanding level of support.
  • Great for heavier sleepers.
  • Great choice for couples (zero motion transfer)

Cons

  • Only one comfort choice.
  • No Twin or for the guest room.

↑ Table of Contents


The Dreamcloud is Perfect For You If…

DreamCloud Mattress Review

  • You want a luxurious, hotel-quality mattress at half the price of comparable store-bought mattresses.
  • You demand outstanding support, excellent cooling and no motion transfer.
  • You want a mattress that will last a very long time.

↑ Table of Contents


Conclusion

The DreamCloud mattress is luxurious and sleeps like mattresses that cost twice as much or more.

It costs less my other top online hybrid mattresses, Sapira and Nest Alexander Hybrid, but in my opinion it's by far the best-looking of the bunch.

If you prefer your mattress firmer than softer and like the feel of a quilted pillow top, then definitely buy the DreamCloud.

More importantly, if you honestly compare the Dreamcloud to its $3,000+ equivalents in brick and mortar stores, the price is a downright steal.

  1. You fail to list the biggest problem. They cannot deliver. They cannot provide dates on when they will deliver. Two weeks in a row their response has been “sorry, we’re behind. We should be getting some in next week”. I ordered July 9 and the website stated shipping would be the 10th. The next day after my card had been processed for full payment it said “delayed”. Then the chats with Customer Service kept pushing it out a week, and I have now been told it will ship around the 26th. Don’t buy, they probably won’t make it for much longer

    • Tom, sorry to hear about your poor experience. Eric and I did not experience this problem with DreamCloud (at all).

      Interested to hear others’ experience – please share!
