Sleep brand DreamCloud has expanded its range to include the new eponymously named The DreamCloud Mattress, a luxury hybrid affair designed to ‘give you the best sleep of your life, every night’. That’s a pretty lofty aim, but DreamCloud has good form in this area and is considered by many to be one of the best mattress online brands in the world, so color us curious.
The DreamCloud Mattress joins the existing DreamCloud Premier, an opulent mattress with an extra inch of supportive and responsive memory foam and three times as much silky smooth cashmere, but with the same supportive innerspring coil system. This should be worth a look for anyone seeking luxury for less, especially if you're searching for the best cooling mattress to help you sleep more comfortably. You may also like our guide to the best bed toppers.
Here are some of the top benefits of the new DreamCloud Mattress at a glance:
- Gel, latex and coil system work together to keep you cool
- Stay-put technology means wriggly partners won't wake you up
- High-density gel memory foam constantly relieves pressure
- Super-soft cashmere blend cover feels divine against the skin
Still, how on earth could a mattress help you unlock that nourishing, magical night’s sleep that seems just so elusive to many of us at the moment? After all, considering how lockdown has affected our sleep, we need all the help we can get here. Well, the new DreamCloud Mattress, designed to work with all bed frames, seems to have some nifty tricks up its sleeve (so to speak) that could help us out…
Firstly, the luxury-firm feel, 15-inch thick mattress uses a combination of memory foam and individually pocketed innerspring coils. When they work together they should enable this mattress to deliver more custom pressure relief where you need it most. Those individually wrapped coils are designed to adapt to your body as soon as you lie down, while gel memory foam shapes itself to your body to further boost support.
Side sleepers, back sleepers, or those of you who flip and flop between positions (including our favorite, the starfish), DreamCloud reckons you’re all in good hands here. We haven’t reviewed The DreamCloud Mattress yet, but we can’t wait to put that gel memory foam through its paces to feel how well it cradles our shoulders and hips. Because, enough with the pesky in-bed pressure already! Getting to sleep is hard enough right now without physical discomfort making it worse.
The best part, though, has to be the allure of that third layer, which promises a ‘sink in, but don’t get swallowed alive’ feeling. Anyone feeling snoozy yet?
As for the second reason why we think you'll love this newcomer, the mattress has a silky smooth cashmere blend cover. DreamCloud has combined that with quilted foam, aiming to create a cozy yet cool surface for you to lounge upon. We’ve reviewed mattresses before that claim to be soft-touch but have been disappointingly itchy instead, so the addition of cashmere here is very promising.
DreamCloud’s current sale means it’s $200 off
The third reason we think you’ll love The DreamCloud Mattress comes down to cold hard cash: there's currently $200 off in every size. So right now you can buy the mattress starting from just $599. Here’s how the prices stack up:
- Twin -
Was $799| Now $599
- Twin XL -
Was $899| Now $699
- Full -
Was $999| Now $799
- Queen -
Was $1099| Now $899
- King -
Was $1299| Now $1099
- Cal King -
Was $1299| Now $1099
That’s a very attractive price, comparable with some of the more affordable mattress brands such as Tuft & Needle and Emma. The sale ends on July 26 though, so you'll need to move fast to get the new mattress at a discount. If it pops up among the best Amazon Prime Day mattress and bedding deals, we'll let you know.
Both mattresses are covered by DreamCloud’s Everlong Warranty and are available on a 365-night trial. That’s more than ample, considering how most sleep experts recommend that you sleep on a new mattress or bed pillow for at least 30 days to ensure it’s the right fit for your dominant sleep style (position).
Could a new mattress really help you sleep better?
There are lots of reasons why you might not be sleeping as well as you should, and as the pandemic rolls on, there’ll be more reasons than usual. Yes, what you sleep on could be affecting your sleep, which is why it’s worth taking a good look at your current bed setup, including whether you have the best pillow for your sleep style.
That said, various health conditions could make it tricky for some of us to get the quality of zzzs we need each night. Some of us are dealing with anxious thoughts, for example, which often lead to a racing mind at night. If that’s you, learning how to stop anxiety ruining your sleep could be the thing you need to help you drop off easier, and that’s much cheaper than shelling out for a new mattress.
Consistently good quality sleep is vital for good health. One study recently looked at the link between broken sleep and heart disease and showed that getting seven hours of quality sleep a night could reduce your risk. We know: sometimes, even just a few hours of sleep can feel unobtainable, let alone seven, but if there’s one area of your life that’s worth putting the effort into, it’s learning how to sleep well.
It takes time and patience, but it’s worth it. Start by taking a look around your bedroom and learning how to optimize it for a more restful night. This includes blocking all light pollution, identifying any noises that might be waking you up, and keeping your bedroom cool.
If you’re dealing with a brain that just won’t switch off, try relaxing your body instead. You could do this with a warm bath or some light yoga before bed, or buy using one of the best handheld massagers, some of which use heat therapy to relax you faster.
Consistent, high quality sleep is something we all deserve. It comes easier to some people, sure, but we can all get a little closer to it with commitment, some lifestyle changes and, where needed, professional help. So if you have been experiencing poor sleep for a while now, speak to your doctor about tips and potential treatment. Your health will thank you for it.
