After years of travel 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 suitable for you, it can not be as simple as taking just anybody’s word on which ones are good and which ones are not. You will have to think about your size, your weight, your body type, what position you sleep in, and whether you share a bed with a spouse, a child, a pet, or some laundry.
I have rounded up three of the cheaper but highly rated mattresses that are currently in the market. In my opinion, the DreamCloud beats them in convenience, luxury, and relaxation; though I reiterate the value of personal taste.
I’ll start by describing the DreamCloud, then detail its similarities and differences with 3 other brands afterward.
DreamCloud Description Dreamcloud Vs Simba
The DreamCloud is among the first beds-in-boxes, compressed and delivered to your doorstep. It’s a 15-inch hybrid mattress, with 5 layers of combination memory materials and coils. Its Euro Top cover is a blend of cashmere and polyester, quilted and reinforced at the edges, giving the bed a snug, 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 beneath it functions as the supporting layer, allowing more stability and adequate spinal alignment. Its next layer is 8 inches of coils that provide 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 disruption of different areas of the bed. At the very bottom is a firm foam that acts as a sturdy foundation for the whole mattress.
DreamCloud Vs Saatva
Both the DreamCloud and Saatva are hybrid mattresses which are very similar in features, but differ in subtle ways. For starters, Saatva, though also available online, is not a bed in a box, and is not compressed when delivered. They have coils and memory materials in their makeup, but their ratios and assembly produce some contrast.
Composition Dreamcloud Vs Simba
The Saatva is also a hybrid mattress, with a combination of foams and coils. They have 2 variants: an 11.5-inch plus a 14.5-inch mattress; but for the purpose of juxtaposition with the DreamCloud, I will explain the latter, which is a closer approximate.
Its antibacterial, cotton Euro Top covers a mixture of memory materials and wires, to promote lumbar support and spinal alignment. The next 4 inches of the mattress is made of foam-wrapped coils, which compress or spring back based on the pressure exerted. An additional layer of steel coils make up another 7 inches, further supporting the top layers and encouraging durability. All edges of the mattress are reinforced by a foam, to improve edge support throughout the surface.
The biggest differences of the Saatva mattress are the total height of its coils, and the foam perimeter. Their firmness is similar, with DreamCloud allowing a little more sinkage to its Euro Top and memory layers, and Saatva at a slightly firmer medium.
Both have responsive materials that provide good mobility to shifting sleepers. However, if we take note of the composition, remember that Saatva has more coil and less foam. The DreamCloud’s thicker foam layers can absorb more energy, and may therefore muffle individual movements better. This is an important consideration for light sleepers, and those that share beds. Saatva’s advantage lies in its solid perimeter support, maximizing every bit of the bed, with no collapsing 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 site more frequently.
Key Takeaways Dreamcloud Vs Simba
The DreamCloud has a more luxurious feel, because of its plush, cashmere blend Euro Top, and upper memory layers. The gel-infused memory technology lets you sleep cooler throughout the night. The combination of foam gives it more sinkage, which is excellent for side and back sleepers; the latter is given excellent pressure relief for shoulders and hips. It’s a perfect balance of comfort and support, and fantastic reduction of motion for co-sleepers.
Saatva is a firmer medium mattress, and consequently 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, as a result of its all-foam perimeter, has improved stability. This is good for people who utilize their beds to double as sitting spaces, 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 component, 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 relieving 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 quite distinctive features from either mattress. However, that is not the case with those two. Both have been categorized as medium firm, with Nectar being only a notch firmer; despite that, they both have a fair amount of sinkage and pressure relief.
The main distinction is DreamCloud’s amount of bounce, providing sleepers more freedom when repositioning. This is thanks to the presence of coils, which is absent from Nectar. That said, Nectar’s product gives its sleepers a deeper hug as the assortment of foams shape to their bodies. This same quality translates to slightly better movement isolation, attributable to its pure foam design.
Prices and Perks
Almost all of Nectar’s costs are nearly half DreamCloud’s, save for the King and California King, whose costs are still a good $500 cheaper. This may be attributed to the quantity and quality of materials used. Remember 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 mix, which really sets it apart as a cheap 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 mattress. Sleepers who like to sleep tight and cozy in their beds would love Nectar’s foams, while people who want a lighter cradle, whilst keeping to the surface should choose the DreamCloud. People who sleep in a combination of positions during the night may also benefit more from DreamCloud’s responsive materials. Both dissipate heat, as a result of their gel parts, so hot sleepers will enjoy the breathability of both mattresses as well.
DreamCloud VS Casper Dreamcloud Vs Simba
Much like the Nectar, Casper is an all-foam mattress. At just 10 inches, Casper is made of 4 inches of a mixed range of foams. The 1st 3 layers are equally 1.5 inches thick. Its top layer is a bouncy, perforated poly foam which they refer to as “open cell,” which increases breathability. The next layer has the memory material that provides compression and pressure relief. The bottom 2 layers are poly foams of increasing density toward the bottom, giving the mattress a foundation and stability.
Though made of different materials and assembled 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 notably returns to its shape quicker 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 design for a breathable top foam, DreamCloud wicks the heat better, 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 offers a 10-year warranty, while the latter promises a life.
DreamCloud is the clear winner between these two, in terms of comfort and luxury. However, their cost gap is also notable, so based upon your budget, Casper’s not a bad option.
Recommendations Dreamcloud Vs Simba
Purchasing a mattress is not something which can be done on a whim; it’s a very important decision. There are plenty of things to take into account, 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 no small thing, so review and identify before making a decision. You will sleep better at night.
