After years of traveling for leisure and work, and sharing rooms with colleagues and friends, I have discovered that preferences in beds come down to a matter of taste. In this case, taste relies hugely on quality of sleep. So in searching for the bed that’s right for you, it can not be as simple as taking just anyone’s word on which ones are good and which ones are not. You’ll have to consider your size, your weight, your build, what position you sleep in, and whether you share a bed with a spouse, a child, a pet, or laundry.
I have rounded up three of the more affordable but highly rated mattresses that are currently in the market. In my opinion, the DreamCloud beats them in convenience, luxury, and comfort; though I reiterate the value of personal preference.
I’ll begin by describing the DreamCloud, then detail its similarities and differences with 3 other brands thereafter.
DreamCloud Description Dreamcloud Vs New Purple
The DreamCloud is one of the first beds-in-boxes, compressed and delivered to your doorstep. It’s a 15-inch hybrid mattress, with 5 layers of mixed memory coils and materials. Its Euro Top cover is a blend of cashmere and polyester, quilted and reinforced at the edges, giving the bed a comfortable, seamless, and plush quality. The gel swirl in its memory foam provides a cooling sensation, even as your body sinks into the surface. The memory technology provides pressure relief by contouring to the areas of the body that protrude into the mattress, especially the shoulders and hips. The poly foam underneath it functions as the supporting layer, allowing more stability and adequate spinal alignment. Its second layer is 8 inches of coils that give a bouncy response to touch, increasing mobility for repositioning the body on the surface. The coils are individually wrapped, permitting independent movement. This greatly reduces motion transfer, or the disturbance of separate regions of the bed. At the very bottom is a firm foam that acts as a sturdy foundation for the entire mattress.
DreamCloud Vs Saatva
Both the DreamCloud and Saatva are hybrid mattresses which are extremely similar in features, but differ in subtle ways. For starters, Saatva, though also available online, is not a bed in a box, and isn’t compressed when delivered. They’ve coils and memory materials in their makeup, but their ratios and assembly produce some contrast.
Composition Dreamcloud Vs New Purple
The Saatva is also a hybrid , with a blend of foams and coils. They have 2 variants: an 11.5-inch plus a 14.5-inch mattress; but for the purpose of making comparisons with the DreamCloud, I will explain the latter, which is a approximate.
Its antibacterial, cotton Euro Top covers a mixture of memory materials and wires, to promote lumbar support and spinal alignment. The following 4 inches of the mattress is made of foam-wrapped coils, which compress or spring back based on the pressure exerted. An extra layer of steel coils compose the next 7 inches, further supporting the upper layers and encouraging durability. All edges of the mattress are reinforced by a foam, to enhance edge support throughout the sleep surface.
The biggest differences of the Saatva mattress are the total height of its coils, as well as the foam perimeter. Their stability is similar, with DreamCloud allowing a bit more sinkage to its Euro Top and memory layers, and Saatva in a slightly firmer medium.
Both have responsive substances that give good mobility to shifting sleepers. However, if we take note of their composition, bear in mind that Saatva has more coil and less foam. The DreamCloud’s thicker foam layers can suck up more energy, and can therefore muffle individual movements better. This is an important consideration for light sleepers, and the ones that share beds. Saatva’s advantage lies in its solid perimeter support, optimizing each bit of this bed, with no falling at the sides.
Prices and Perks
Saatva’s prices are at least $100 cheaper, from their Twin to Queen sizes; but even out with DreamCloud for its King and California Kings. They vary between from $799-$1599, with DreamCloud offering discounts on their website more frequently.
Key Takeaways Dreamcloud Vs New Purple
The DreamCloud has a more luxurious feel, because of its lavish, cashmere blend Euro Top, and upper memory layers. The gel-infused memory technology lets you sleep cooler through the night. The combination of foam gives it more sinkage, which is ideal for side and back sleepers; the latter is given excellent pressure relief for shoulders and hips. It’s a perfect balance of support and comfort, and fantastic reduction of movement for co-sleepers.
Saatva is a firmer medium mattress, and naturally boasts of better lumbar alignment. Its firmness is also good for people who sleep on their stomachs, as the top keeps you on the mattress without stifling your face. Its edge support, thanks to its all-foam perimeter, has improved stability. This is good for those who use their beds to double as sitting areas, or tend to dangle over the sides when sleeping.
DreamCloud Vs Nectar
Contrary to DreamCloud, Nectar is a multi-layer, all-foam mattress. Its design includes several kinds of foam to serve an assortment of functions. At 11 inches tall, its foundation layer is its thickest element, made of 6 inches of firm but breathable foam. Above that is 3 inches of an adaptive memory foam, made for contouring to the sleeper’s body and alleviating pressure from certain points. An inch of what Nectar describes as “semi-open lush foam” is sandwiched between the latter and the upper layer, made of a quilted gel memory foam. The mattress is encased in long-staple cotton and Tencel fabric, which are light and airy materials.
Based on the disparity of the composition, you’d expect very distinctive features from either mattress. However, that is not the case with those two. Both have been categorized as medium firm, with Nectar being just a notch firmer; despite that, they both have a fair amount of sinkage and pressure relief.
The main difference is DreamCloud’s amount of bounce, providing sleepers more mobility when repositioning. This is due to the existence of coils, which is absent from Nectar. That said, Nectar’s product gives its sleepers a deeper hug as the range of foams contour to their bodies. This same quality translates to slightly superior motion isolation, attributable to the pure foam design.
Pricing and Perks
Just about all of Nectar’s costs are nearly half of DreamCloud’s, save for the King and California King, whose costs continue to be a good $500 cheaper. This may be due to the quantity and quality of materials used. Recall that the Nectar is only 11 inches tall, while the DreamCloud is a full 4 inches taller. What you do not pay for in Nectar’s mattress is the feel of DreamCloud’s plush cashmere blend, which sets it apart as an affordable luxury bed.
Off the bat, you can make a decision based on if you enjoy the feeling of being “in” the mattress or “on” the bed. Sleepers who prefer to sleep tight and cozy in their beds would love Nectar’s foams, while people who want a milder cradle, whilst keeping to the surface should choose the DreamCloud. Those who sleep in a mixture of positions during the night may also benefit more from DreamCloud’s responsive materials. Both dissipate heat, thanks to their gel components, so hot sleepers will enjoy the breathability of both mattresses also.
DreamCloud VS Casper Dreamcloud Vs New Purple
Much like the Nectar, Casper is an all-foam mattress. At only 10 inches, Casper is made of 4 inches of a mixed array of foams. The 1st 3 layers are equally 1.5 inches thick. Its top layer is a bouncy, perforated poly foam that they refer to as “open cell,” which increases breathability. The next layer has the memory material that provides compression and pressure relief. The last 2 layers are poly foams of increasing density toward the bottom, giving the mattress a foundation and stability.
Though made of different materials and constructed quite differently, both possess a medium firm feel, with Casper on the firmer end of the scale. It follows that Casper gives a feels more supportive when lying on the trunk, but the DreamCloud gives better pressure relief for both back and side sleepers.
Though both mattresses are elastic, the DreamCloud especially returns to its shape faster than Casper. This exact same characteristic, with the addition of DreamCloud’s coils, make it easier for combination sleepers to move about at night. Despite Casper’s layout for a breathable top foam, DreamCloud wicks the heat more efficiently, which can be attributed to its gel cooling technologies.
Pricing and Perks
Casper’s prices range from $595-$1295, while DreamCloud begins at $899 for the Twin and up to $1599 for the California King. Casper has a free trial of 100 days, while DreamCloud grants a full 365 days. Respectively, the former provides a 10-year warranty, while the latter promises a lifetime.
DreamCloud is the obvious winner between these two, in terms of luxury and comfort. However, their cost gap is also notable, so based on your budget, Casper’s not a bad option.
Recommendations Dreamcloud Vs New Purple
Purchasing a mattress isn’t something that should be done on a whim; it’s a very important decision. There are plenty of things to consider, and most important are your personal preferences and requirements. In fact, a long and healthy life depends on it. The amount of money that goes into these is not any small object either, so review and discern before making a decision. You will sleep better at night.
