DreamCloud Mattress

Best For:

  • Those who usually sleep hot
  • Sleepers who sleep most on their back, side, or both
  • Anyone who wants a hotel-like luxury mattress


The DreamCloud Mattress is a bed with multiple layers that can provide you with impressive comfort and support. With up to 15 inches height, this mattress surely contains a lot under its cover. So, let’s start with its cover which is made of a quilted euro top. Designed to provide the dreamiest sleep that you can ever wish for, this durable quilted euro top offers unparalleled comfort. Under this top layer is the contour and comfort layer which is made of memory foam. What’s more, this is infused with cooling gel to increase its offered comfort. This memory foam is reinforced by another layer of foam which provides resistance to the entire mattress. Next to this layer is the supportive spring system which contains pocketed innerspring coils for a complete sleep. For the second to the last layer, the DreamCloud Mattress has the base support layer. This layer keeps the stability of the above pocketed innerspring coil layer.  Meanwhile, its bottom cover is there to ensure that all layers of the mattress stay in place. Thus, you can enjoy a deeper and more restful sleep with the help of these layers. You don’t even need to worry about moving around while you’re in dreamland.


DreamCloud prides itself on offering a luxury firm mattress that has a “just right” feel. This hybrid mattress is designed to offer the perfect balance of body-contouring comfort and responsive support. Its gel-infused memory foam has a double duty of providing a soft and comforting feel to all types of sleepers. Also, it can contour perfectly to different body shapes and sizes to guarantee an ultimate pressure point relief. Thus, this mattress is great for back and side sleepers who want a firmer but comfortable and supportive mattress. Even some stomach sleepers may find its 6.5 firmness rating comfy enough.


Since the support plays an important role in every mattress, DreamCloud also designed it to offer an upgrade. Every sleeper deserves an upgrade which the company made sure to provide that through its pressure relief. This allows the mattress to keep its balance and support equal for a more responsive and flexible feel. Thus, you don’t have to worry about sleeping on a mattress that slowly feels like quicksand.  It has that plush feel when you first lie down on this mattress while its quite euro top cradles your entire body. Most importantly, the innovative pocketed innerspring coil system with higher gauge coils boosts edge support and reduces motion transfer.

Temperature Regulation

Aside from providing great support, the DreamCloud Mattress is also there to help regulate temperature and keep you cool. For instance, is cool quilted euro top is the first layer of cooling solution that can cradle you from head to toe. Then, theirs the gel-infused memory foam that helps absorb your excess body heat to push it out of the mattress. Even its pocketed innerspring coil system is there to aid these layers and promote better air circulation through the mattress.

Purple Mattress

Best For:

  • Customers who want a long-lasting
  • Back, stomach, heavier side sleepers, or combo sleepers
  • Those who are hot sleepers
  • Anyone who prefers to sleep on a foam mattress
  • Couples or individuals who share their bed


If you were impressed by the DreamCloud Mattress’ thick profile, don’t expect too much the Purple Mattress. Compared with the first one, this unique mattress only has 9.5 inches height which puts under the category of thin mattresses. Also, the Purple Mattress is not a hybrid mattress since it only contains multiple layers of foams and its signature Purple Grid. So, let’s identify its layers by starting with its mattress cover which is made of 29% viscose, 67% polyester, 4% lycra. Its fabric weighs 450g with a non-toxic knit barrier that is not chemically treated to resist fire. The non-slip bottom cover is also made of 100% polyester stitch bond and non-FR coating to keep it in place. Underneath this cover is the 2 inches top layer which is made of hyper-elastic polymer. This famous Purple Grid has a non-toxic polyethylene copolymer powder coating. Meanwhile, its middle layer is a thicker layer polyurethane foam that has a 1.8 pounds density and 3.5 inches height. Lastly, its base layer is made of polyurethane foam that has a 2 pounds density and 4 inches in height.


If the DreamCloud Mattress has a luxury firm feel, the Purple Mattress has a medium-firm feel. Despite its foam mattress construction, it feels a little bit firmer than a hybrid mattress of DreamCloud. This mattress has a comfort level that has about 7 out of 10 ratings for sleepers that weigh less than 180 pounds.

But then again, this may vary depending on the size and weight of each sleeper. The heavier you are the softer this mattress may feel. This makes this mattress suitable for all sleeping positions whether you’re a back, side, or stomach sleeper.



One thing is for sure, this mattress feels great for back sleepers who want a balanced comfort and support. Even stomach sleepers can enjoy its support while heavier sleepers can get just enough cushioning from this bed. Heavier side sleepers can enjoy its Purple Grid’s provided great pressure relief as the Purple Grid flex under pressure. This mattress supports the back’s natural spinal alignment for a “no pressure” support.

The gel grid can cradle the entire body from head to toe, especially your hips and shoulders. This mattress can also provide nice edge support which can prevent you from falling off the bed anytime. However, its squishy Purple Grid is not that impressive in isolating motion transfer as the previous mattress can.


Temperature Regulation

If you’re a cold sleeper, this may not be an issue. But if you experience night sweats, it’s either you’re a hot sleeper or you just got the wrong mattress. To fight any feeling of discomfort due to the increasing temperature of the mattress, the brand used a Purple Grid. This layer contains thousands of open-air channels that can make you feel cool as you slumber. Each open-air channel help neutralizes your body heat by absorbing it and allowing it to escape through the mattress.



First things first, the Purple Mattress in this review is a foam mattress while the DreamCloud Mattress is a luxury hybrid mattress. Purple contains only 3 layers of materials under its cover while the other mattress has 4 layers inside. These layers foams and thousands of coils made the DreamCloud Mattress 5.5 inches thicker compared with its competitor.

Regardless, the latter still feels softer compared with the Purple Mattress which is firmer for those who weigh less than 180 pounds. Your size and weight play an important role in this aspect. Thus, it is safe to say that the Purple Mattress is more suitable for those who have average to large frames. Meanwhile, the DreamCloud can accommodate individuals with small to average and large frames.

If you are concerned with the price, DreamCloud costs $599 (Twin) to $1,299 (King and Cal King) while Purple costs $649 (Twin) to $1,399 (King and Cal King) and $1,498 (Split King).


For the final round between DreamCloud and Purple, you can consider these points to help you decide:

What size of mattress do you need?

Both brands offer different sizes. However, only Purple has a Split King to cater for couples who have different preferences in sleep.

Do you share your bed?

If yes, then DreamCloud Mattress is a more appropriate choice since it offers better edge support and motion isolation.
