After years of traveling for work and leisure, and sharing rooms with colleagues and friends, I’ve discovered that even preferences in beds come down to a matter of taste. In this case, taste relies hugely on quality of sleep. So in finding the bed that’s suitable for you, it can not be as straightforward as taking just anybody’s word on which ones are good and which ones aren’t. You’ll need 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 cheaper but highly rated mattresses which are currently on the market. In my view, the DreamCloud defeats them in convenience, luxury, and relaxation; 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 afterward.
DreamCloud Description Dreamcloud Vs Winkbed Plus
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 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 gives a cooling sensation, even as your body sinks into the top layer. The memory technology provides pressure relief by contouring to the areas of the body which protrude into the mattress, particularly the shoulders and hips. The poly foam underneath 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 reaction 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 serves as a sturdy foundation for the entire 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’ve coils and memory substances in their makeup, but their ratios and assembly produce some contrast.
Composition Dreamcloud Vs Winkbed Plus
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 making comparisons with the DreamCloud, I will explain the latter, which is a approximate.
Its antibacterial, cotton Euro Top covers a mixture of memory substances 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 another 7 inches, further stabilizing the top layers and encouraging durability. All edges of the bed are reinforced by a foam, to enhance edge support throughout the sleep surface.
The biggest differences of the Saatva mattress are the overall height of its coils, and the foam perimeter. Their firmness 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 provide very good mobility to repositioning 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 mattress, with no collapsing at the sides.
Prices and Perks
Saatva’s prices are at least $100 cheaper, from their Twin to Queen dimensions; but even out with DreamCloud for its King and California Kings. They range between from $799-$1599, with DreamCloud offering discounts on their website more frequently.
Key Takeaways Dreamcloud Vs Winkbed Plus
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 throughout the night. The combination of foam gives it more sinkage, which is excellent for back and side sleepers; the latter is granted excellent pressure relief for shoulders and hips. It has a perfect balance of comfort and support, and excellent reduction of motion 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, as a result of its all-foam perimeter, has improved stability. This is good for those 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 a variety of functions. At 11 inches tall, its foundation layer is its thickest component, made of 6 inches of firm but breathable foam. Above that’s 3 inches of an adaptive memory foam, made for contouring to the sleeper’s body and relieving pressure from certain areas. 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 each mattress. However, that’s not the case with these two. Both have been categorized as medium firm, with Nectar being only a notch firmer; despite that, they both have a reasonable amount of sinkage and pressure relief.
The main difference is DreamCloud’s amount of bounce, giving 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 better movement isolation, attributable to its pure foam design.
Pricing and Perks
Almost all of Nectar’s costs are almost 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 amount and quality of materials used. Recall that the Nectar is just 11 inches tall, while the DreamCloud is a full 4 inches taller. What you don’t pay for in Nectar’s mattress is the feel of DreamCloud’s plush cashmere blend, which sets it apart as a cheap luxury mattress.
Off the bat, you can make a choice based on whether you like the feeling of being “in” the bed 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 lighter cradle, whilst keeping to the surface should opt for the DreamCloud. People who sleep in a mixture of positions throughout 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 also.
DreamCloud VS Casper Dreamcloud Vs Winkbed Plus
Much like the Nectar, Casper is an all-foam mattress. At just 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 base 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 provides better pressure relief for both back and side sleepers.
Though both mattresses are springy, the DreamCloud especially returns to its shape quicker than Casper. This 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 better, which may be attributed to its gel cooling technology.
Prices and Perks
Casper’s prices range from $595-$1295, while DreamCloud starts at $899 for the Twin and up to $1599 for the California King. Casper includes a free trial of 100 days, while DreamCloud offers 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 price gap is also significant, so depending upon your budget, Casper’s not a bad option.
Recommendations Dreamcloud Vs Winkbed Plus
Purchasing a mattress is not something that can be done on a whim; it’s a very important decision. There are loads of things to take into account, and most important are your personal preferences and needs. In fact, a long and healthy life depends on it. The amount of money that goes into those is no small object either, so review and identify before making a decision. You’ll sleep better at night.
