Considering we spend about one-third of our lives in our beds, it’s important to have one that is comfortable and we enjoy! And maybe equally important that it’s one that we don’t want to get out of every morning. That might be where I am right now. It could also be that I’m not getting the right amount of sleep each day! We’ve had our provided DreamCloud Mattress set up for a few days now, so I’m just going to go over the mattress, setup and a little of our thoughts so far. [see below for more updates]

About DreamCloud Mattress
When DreamCloud reached out and offered to send us a mattress to try out, I checked out their website and knew I wanted to give it a whirl. It is a luxury 15” hybrid mattress, meaning it’s a combination of latex, memory foam, hand-crafted Cashmere turfing and coil technology. It’s meant to be the best of both worlds with it’s 8-layer system. So much so that they are calling it “the Dreamiest Sleep Ever”…like sleeping on a cloud (although, I’m not really sure of exactly what that feels like)!
DreamCloud wanted to create a mattress that supports any kind of sleeper but at a price people could afford. The 8-layer system is made of premium hypoallergenic foams and coils and ships straight to your door so there’s no need to figure out which friend’s truck you can borrow!

Getting DreamCloud ready for “unboxing”
Hopefully, you are lucky to catch your delivery driver and have them put your mattress in your garage. It’s pretty heavy (with the king weighing in at 109 pounds), so I was happy that my driver was willing to get it into the house for me. When it ships it has an outer bag over this one. We knew there were handles on the inner bag, so we cut the outer bag off before moving the mattress around.
Once inside the house, we still had to do a little maneuvering and heavy lifting to get the mattress upstairs. I would definitely recommend having a friend or two available to help lift and set it up.
And, you might need to let your cuties take a little ride on the compressed and rolled mattress before you get it into your room. (This is a good time to catch your breath after getting it upstairs). I say this now…it’s worth it!! It’s heavy, but worth getting it in and set up.
Unboxing the DreamCloud Mattress
We even took a break and filmed a video unboxing the DreamCloud mattress so you can see how quickly it fills out. I sped the video up, but it’s about 3 minutes moving at our slow pace.
Once it was in the room, there wasn’t much more to it. We got it up on our box springs/foundation (but any foundation will likely work). Next we had to unzip it from the inner bag. Once that started, little bits of air got in and it started to expand. Then we needed to cut into the bag to unroll it the rest of the way, and cut the plastic off, the mattress quickly expanded.
It was fun to hear the coils expand inside the mattress as the mattress itself was expanding.
Check out the video to see it in action.
Less than 5 minutes later, the mattress appeared fully expanded and ready for some sleepers.
I have a very sensitive nose and we’ve had a couple compressed mattresses. This was the first one that I didn’t notice any smell on during expanding or after.
The cashmere on the top is super soft and the entire mattress is incredibly plush and soft, but not too soft. Mr. Serious does NOT like soft mattresses, so it’s a challenge to find one that we both like.
When I first jumped on the bed, I said it did feel very cloud-like. It’s way thicker and taller than any mattress we’ve had. But, it also feels more supportive and contouring to our bodies.
So far, we are very happy with our DreamCloud mattress. Of course, the kids think they need to climb into the bed when they wake up in the morning because they think it’s so fun and new. And this one has asked to have her own mattress just like ours!
After a Month (March 2018)
We’ve really been enjoying our sleep. We are both side/tummy sleepers (falling asleep) and often end up on our backs. It’s comfortable in all positions for us creating great support. It really does feel like you are sleeping on a cloud.
Also, it doesn’t sleep hot or feel hot. During the winter, I often find myself snuggling under the covers to stay nice and warm.
We don’t have any “dents” or “indentations” where we sleep, or “hills” where we don’t sleep.
After 4 Years (October 2022)
We still love our Dreamcloud mattress. When we go on vacation or sleep in other beds, we are very excited to come home to sleep in our own bed. It’s got great shape and we feel very supported sleeping on it.
Sheets that fit Dreamcloud
We’ve had to buy a couple different sheet sets to fit the 15″ thick Dreamcloud mattress. If the sheets are too small, you wake up with sheets popping the corners.
Microfiber sheets for Dreamcloud
We’ve had the best luck with the mellanni brushed microfiber sheets. They will actually work for a 16″ mattress, so there is room to spare in the deep pockets. They are super soft and wash very well!
Luxury supima cotton blended sheets for Dream Cloud Mattress
After sleeping on the microfiber sheets for a while, I wanted to try out something else. I was sent a set of Ghost Sheets which call themselves “the coolest sheets in the world.”
Having tried many other sheets for our Dreamcloud mattress and them popping off, I was happy to find Ghost Sheets are the the answer to ‘what sheets fit Dreamcloud mattress.’ They stay on these deep corners with a pocket up to 18” deep with ghost grip!
The 2” GhostGrip helps the sheets stay on DreamCloud mattress and several brands.
GhostBed makes really nice and soft sheets for Dreamcloud. GhostBed sheets or GhostSheets are crafted with premium, Supima cotton blended with cooling and eco-friendly TENCEL® fibers. The Plant-based TENCEL® offers breathability plus bacteria and allergen resistance.
They are a higher-quality sheet than microfiber, but still at an affordable price point.
After washing, they look the same. I see no signs of wear or pilling. They feel nice and soft and cool. They make our bed look nice and welcoming and the GhostSheets feel great to get into.
Completing your room
We had some very mismatched curtains for a while. I finally got tired of looking at them, and removed them. But living on a corner, when cars drive by the street, their lights actually come in our windows, so we needed something. The mellanni thermal blackout curtains did a great job. They matched everything from our bedding to our sheets and they keep the car and sunlight out of our room.
