DreamCloud vs. Saatva Mattress Comparison

In this review, we will compare the DreamCloud and the Saatva mattresses. They are both hybrid innerspring mattresses with some differences. Examining these differences can help you decide which mattress is the mattress of your dreams.

  • Price

    If you’re looking to save money a queen-sized Saatva mattress is only $1099 compared to DreamCloud’s $1400. While it is only a minor difference, the Saatva mattress is the better purchase because of its performance in other categories including this one.

  • Feel

    Both the DreamCloud and Saatva mattresses are hybrid mattresses with a pillow top. The DreamCloud uses a cashmere and polyester blend while the Saatva uses a European style pillow top. Both beds use pocketed coils but the DreamCloud only uses one layer compared to Saatva’s dual-layer coil on coil design.

    Both the Saatva and DreamCloud feature good bounce but the Saatva sleeps cooler and provides more comfort due to its micro-coils and pillow top fabric choices. However, if you prefer the memory foam feel, you may prefer the DreamCloud.

  • Construction

    The DreamCloud mattress comes with 5 layers, a cashmere blend quilted top, gel-infused memory foam, high-density foam, individually wrapped coils, and a dense support foam.

    The Saatva offers 4 layers. An organic cotton Euro pillow top, a layer of memory foam, individually wrapped micro-coils, and high-grade steel coils.

    Both mattresses are intricately constructed in an effort to provide you with your best night’s sleep. While the DreamCloud has more layers, they are thin and provide a similar level of comfort. Ultimately, we felt that the Saatva was able to achieve a better night’s sleep with fewer features and provides better edge support.

  • Firmness

    If you prefer a firmer mattress the Saatva is the mattress for you. While both the DreamCloud and the Saatva are considered to be mid-level firm mattresses, the Saatva is higher up on the scale towards firm. Due to the layers of the DreamCloud, its mattress is much softer and gives a plush feel.

  • Overall Favorite

    Overall our favorite is the Saatva. While the DreamCloud is the better bet in terms of motion isolation, the Saatva tends to be better constructed for most of the features that make a good bed.

Owner Satisfaction

While the DreamCloud came close, it just couldn’t beat the Saatva in this ranking. Overall customers found the Saatva to be the mattress of their dreams. The DreamCloud left owners satisfied but more owners seemed to think that the Saatva was a better buy even exclaiming that the “price was a bargain” considering the comfort.

Sleeping Cool

Both beds offer a similar cooling sleep but many felt that the polyester and cashmere cover gave the DreamCloud a slightly warmer sleep than the organic cotton cover of the Saatva which was slightly cooler than the Saatva. Although the DreamCloud is made with gel-infused foam that is supposed to disperse the heat, the cover was its downfall in this category.

Comfort

The DreamCloud and Saatva mattresses both give a sufficiently comfortable sleep for most sleepers. Unfortunately, the DreamCloud doesn’t match up to the level of comfort provided by the Saatva.

The Saatva offers a supportive but bouncy bed while the DreamCloud gives you a pillow top memory foam feel. While the DreamCloud is comfortable the added cooling ability of the Saatva makes it that much more comfortable for most sleepers.

Motion Transfer/Isolation

This is one category where the Saatva cannot match up to the DreamCloud. If you’re looking for a mattress that allows you to sleep without feeling every toss and turn of your sleeping partner, the DreamCloud is the best pick.

Saatva’s coil on coil design offers benefits in comfort and feel but it does nothing to dampen motion transfer. The DreamCloud isolates motion much better than the Saatva.

A Closer Look at the DreamCloud

To get a clear picture of the DreamCloud, let’s delve deeper into this mattress.

DreamCloud insides

Materials

The DreamCloud is a 15-inch mattress with five layers. It starts with an ultra soft Mongolian cashmere cover followed by three layers of foam. The uppermost layer of trueloft eurotop is quilted into the cover. Beneath the eurotop is a high density gel memory foam designed to provide pressure point relief and a low motion transfer foam to isolate movement.

At the base of the bed is what DreamCloud has dubbed their edge shield coil system. These coils are individually encased with a double row around the rim for extra edge support. Supporting all the layers of the mattress is a porous foam called stay put control, that redistributes unwanted vibrations from the coils.

Feel and Firmness

The DreamCloud has a plush feel that allows you to sink in the top layers. The memory foam does make it a little hard to move around on but is overall comfortable. The layers of foam also add to the mattresses ability to contour the body.

When you sit on the edge, you will notice that the DreamCloud mattress does sink. You will likely not feel secure sitting on the edge of this mattress. While the coils were designed to provide edge support, they do not do a good job of providing it.

For firmness, the DreamCloud is a standard midrange firm mattress. The top layers are soft and allow a hand to sink into it but as you hit the more supportive layers sinking stops. The DreamCloud’s coils work along with the memory foam layers to give you a supportive medium firm sleep.

Sleeping Positions

The DreamCloud mattress is a standard medium firm mattress that provides the support that most sleepers need. For back sleepers, the mattress is good but they may prefer a firmer model of mattress.

Side sleepers will have their best sleep on this mattress due to the forgiving contouring nature of the pillow top and memory foam that work together to cradle the body.

If you are a stomach sleeper, the DreamCloud is not the mattress for you. While previous versions of this mattress were slightly firmer lending to good support for a stomach sleeper the newer version of the DreamCloud is too soft for most stomach sleepers and will not provide enough support to the hips.

Heavier Sleepers

People of a heavier stature will notice that the sink into the DreamCloud mattress down to the more supportive layers making this mattress seem firmer to them. For heavier people the DreamCloud mattress is good for both side and back sleeping. Stomach sleepers will notice that their hips sink down too much for comfort and will cause pressure on the lower back area.

Warranty

The DreamCloud mattress has a limited lifetime warranty and a 365-day trial period. The warranty is limited because while DreamCloud will replace the mattress for any defect in workmanship or materials during the first 10 years of ownership, they will only repair and recover your mattress during years 10 and up.

There is the possibility of transportation charges for repairs and replacements if they cannot confirm a manufacturing defect or material failure. Additionally, the warranty is not transferable and is only covered for the original owner.

Plush covering

A Closer Look at the Saatva

Before you commit to a Saatva it is a good idea to take an indepth look at this mattress.

Saatva Mattress

Materials

The Saatva is a four layer mattress with a foam encasement for improved edge support. The mattress is surrounded by an antimicrobial organic cotton cover with a euro pillow top to provide sleepers with additional cushion and comfort.

The Saatva has a thin layer of memory foam that should provide lumbar support and relieve pressure from shoulders and hips. Beneath this is a layer of individually wrapped microcoils that are connected to a layer of steel coils. The coil on coil structure provides not only extra bounce and lift but also helps to prevent sagging.

Feel and Firmness

The Saatva mattress gives sleepers a traditional innerspring mattress feel. The micro coils and memory foam provide extra contouring for your body. For sleepers looking for a slightly firmer mattress, the Saatva is on the high-end of medium firmness. The memory foam doesn’t take away from its supportive feel.

Sleeping Positions

Stomach and back sleepers will find their best night’s sleep on this mattress. The extra support and contouring provided by the coil on coil system allows back and stomach sleepers the support they need. Side sleepers will; however, find that the Saatva doesn’t provide the shoulder and hip pressure relief that they need.

Heavier Sleepers

For sleepers of a higher than average weight they will notice that they sink into the Saatva more than they might prefer. While the Saatva mattress provides ample pressure relief for heavier sleepers on side and back sleeping positions. Stomach sleepers will have better support on one of Saatva’s firmer mattresses.
