As the name suggests, the Dreamcloud Premier is a bit more luxurious than the standard Dreamcloud. The Dreamcloud has one less foam layer than the Dreamcloud Premier, and doesn’t have the EuroTop. Beyond that, there aren’t actually too many differences.
I’ll take you through everything Dreamcloud Vs Dreamcloud Premier so you don’t miss any details which may help you with your choice. Together we will look at:
- An Overview Of The Two Mattresses
- Detailed Analysis Of The Construction Similarities And Differences
- Finally, Which Is The Best One? (Spoiler Alert: I Think The DreamCloud Is A Better Value Buy)
UPDATE: DreamCloud now offer three mattresses, with the recent addition of the DreamCloud Premier Rest. I’ve reviewed this new premium mattress in detail here.
DreamCloud Vs DreamCloud Premier – Look Inside Both Mattresses
Analysis Of The Construction Similarities And Differences
Let me take you through both mattresses, layer by layer. This allows you to directly compare exactly what you’re getting inside each mattress, and determine how much of a difference there is between the two.
As you can see when we directly compare the two mattresses above, they have quite a lot in common. Here’s the full list of similarities between the Dreamcloud and the Dreamcloud Premier mattress:
- 365 Night sleep trial (yes you read that right, it’s a whole year. This is incredibly generous and it’s how Dreamcloud stands out from their competitors)
- Lifetime warranty (the only thing to look out for here is that Dreamcloud regularly updates their mattresses so if you ever need a replacement it will be a slightly different model)
- Both mattresses are14 inches high, setting them at luxury mattress height so make sure your pocket sheets are deep enough to accommodate your choice
- Cashmere blend cover (this is a particularly nice luxury touch: Cashmere is known for its softness and lightness), both feature a white top with navy sides
- Gel memory foam layer for both contouring and temperature regulation
- Transition foam layer between the memory foam and the pocket coils
- Pocket coil support system with reinforced coils around the edges for strong edge support
- Base foam layer: this is a high density foam that is basically just there as a landing pad for the coils. It’s a sign of quality that the mattress maker wants to protect the coils, but it doesn’t affect how the mattress feels to lie on
- Handles on the sides for easy maneuvering
There aren’t really too many differences between the two. They have a lot more similarities! Here are the differences:
- The Dreamcloud Premier has an extra inch of soft memory foam inside it. It’s the first foam layer at the top of the mattress.
- Due to the extra memory foam in the top, the Dreamcloud Premier has a slightly more plush feel than the Dreamcloud, but both retain their firmness rating of 6.5. I’d say that the Dreamcloud Premier will allow deeper contouring.
- The Dreamcloud Premier runs a couple hundred dollars more expensive than the Dreamcloud in all sizes. Don’t forget to make use of your $200 discount.
Which Is The Best One?
If you’re looking for a slightly softer mattress (lighter people, side sleepers, I’m talking to you) then you’ll want to choose the Dreamcloud Premier. For pretty much everyone else, the standard Dreamcloud works really well.
I prefer the standard Dreamcloud mattress out of these two. Yes, the Dreamcloud Premier is taller and has more memory foam in a Euro Top, but I don’t think it’s really enough to justify the $200 price difference. For that money, you could always get a quality mattress topper if you really needed it, later.
