DreamCloud Premier and DreamCloud Premier Rest are the two upper-level “better” and “best” models that DreamCloud offers. They’re taller, contain more layers, and are all-around more luxurious than the original DreamCloud mattress. Though, they have a few differing characteristics, making each bed more appealing to certain sleepers. This review will explore the highlights and differences between DreamCloud Premier and Premier Rest, and we’ll break down who we think will like each bed best. Here are the main highlights that you should know:
- These beds have hybrid constructions and range from 14” to 16” thick.
- DreamCloud Premier is a bit firmer than the Rest model.
- While these beds are made with memory foam, they don’t really have a memory foam feel.
- Most body types and sleeping positions can find an accommodating model, with the exception being back and stomach sleepers over 230 lbs.
- A queen size DreamCloud Premier retails around $1,599, but they offer generous discounts.
DreamCloud Premier vs Premier Rest Review (Which Bed Is Right For You?)
DreamCloud Premier Mattress Construction
DreamCloud Premier is a hybrid bed made with coils, memory foam, and polyfoam. All in all, the bed is comprised of six different layers and totals about 14″ thick. The Rest model, on the other hand, is a whopping 16”, but its extra two inches of foam is the only major difference. Here is a quick breakdown of the different layers starting from bottom to top.
- Dense Support Foam – this is the base layer for the entire bed.
- 8.5″ Pocketed Coils – this layer serves as the primary support framework for the mattress.
- Transition Foam – Another layer of supportive foam that acts as a transition from the firm coils below.
- Gel Memory Foam – This 2.5” layer provides an element of comfort and deep pressure relief for sleepers.
- Quilted Euro-Top – DreamCloud Premier mattress incorporates a special 2″ quilted Euro-top comprised of two separate layers of comfort foam, both on the softer side of the spectrum, to provide extra comfort for sleepers.
- Cover – Wrapping the euro pillow-top is a soft cover made of cashmere, rayon, and polyester, which we think gives the DreamCloud Premier mattress a premium look and feel.
DreamCloud Premier Firmness And Feel
How does this bed feel?
Thanks to the memory foam layers near its surface, the DreamCloud Premier mattress does have a memory foam feel, but we wouldn’t say it’s overwhelming. The quilted Euro-top (which comprises two separate comfort foams) works to balance out the viscous memory foam feel a little bit. Overall, we’d say the bed has a pillow-top feel with a touch of memory foam. DreamCloud Premier Rest mattress feels similar, except it’s a bit more plush and soft.
We would also consider DreamCloud Premier and DreamCloud Premier Rest to be responsive mattress—mostly due to the fact that it has thick pocketed coils and memory foam that doesn’t make you feel like you’re sinking. This means that switching positions requires little effort, which can help with getting more restful sleep.
Moving on, we think the Premier mattress lands right around a medium to medium-firm on the firmness scale. The Rest model, however, is a bit softer and falls around the medium to the medium-soft range.
It is important to note that softness/firmness is subjective based on your weight and BMI. Heavier folks will experience a softer DreamCloud Premier, and lighter individuals will claim that it’s firmer. This might seem intuitive, but a lot of people overlook it.
The Premier model is not the most pressure-relieving bed we’ve ever tested because it does lean towards the firm end of the firmness spectrum, but it does offer some thanks to the memory foam and fluffy pillow-top comfort layers. If you want max pressure relief, opt for Premier Rest. It’s softer and will cradle your pressure points better than DreamCloud Premier.
We wouldn’t say either of the DreamCloud Premier mattresses are warm sleeping. Sure, the Rest mattress is soft, and you do nestle into a little bit, but the pillow top works to counteract the memory foam a little so that you don’t feel like you’re being hugged or engulfed by the top layers. Plus, the coils in the bed allow for a decent amount of airflow. In our eyes, the DreamCloud Premier mattresses should be considered temperature neutral.
Keep in mind, plenty of other factors beyond your mattress play into how warm or cool you sleep as well. We’re referring to things like your pajamas, room temperature, sheets, etc.
DreamCloud Premier Price & Coupon Code
In our opinion, the DreamCloud Premier mattress is priced fairly, considering the quality of the bed. The Rest model is also quite affordable and only costs about $200 more than DreamCloud Premier. This has a lot to do because they cut costs on distributors, intermediaries, and storefronts by selling directly to the consumer online.
|King / Cal King||$2,298|
DreamCloud, like pretty much every other mattress brand, likes to play the discount game. Typically, you can expect the company to take hundreds of dollars off the retail price. We’ve seen them bring a queen size DreamCloud Premier down around the $1,400 mark, which again is pretty incredible given the mattress’s high-quality construction.

Suitable Sleepers For The DreamCloud Premier
- Back And Stomach Sleepers
Given the DreamCloud Premier mattress lands on the firmer end of the spectrum (albeit not by much), we think the DreamCloud Premier is an excellent choice for back and stomach sleepers seeking a supportive hybrid mattress that’s not excessively firm.
Some back and stomach sleepers may prefer the older, firmer version of this bed, but at the end of the day, it now strikes a much healthier balance between comfort and support, which side sleepers will certainly appreciate. Speaking of side sleepers, let’s touch on that subject next.
- Side Sleepers
DreamCloud Premiere Rest falls on the soft end of the firmness spectrum and is plusher than the standard DreamCloud Premier model. As such, side sleepers should find the Rest model provides a great amount of pressure relief for the hips and shoulders.
- Combination Sleepers
As for combination sleepers, the standard DreamCloud Premier should be fine here. The responsive nature of the mattress as a whole makes it effortless to roll between sleeping positions. You won’t encounter hardly any resistance when you try to go from your back to your side, for example.
Body Type Analysis
- Heavy Individuals
Both DreamCloud Premier mattresses are solid options for heavy people. Their overall profiles, pocketed coils, and dense foam layers, all work together to make one heck of a bed. Our resident big dog, Dillon, currently sleeps on this bed and absolutely loves it.
With that said, heavy individuals who spend most of the night on their backs or stomachs may find the beds to be a tad bit too soft. If you fall into this category, be sure to check out our list of the best beds for heavy people.
- Petite to Average Individuals
DreamCloud will be just fine for more average size people. They’re really nice, supportive mattresses. For more petite individuals, however, the DreamCloud beds may be overkill. They’re so thick that it’s just more than you need. Don’t get us wrong, small individuals will be just fine on a DreamCloud Premier bed, but it could be considered unnecessary. Smaller people would be perfectly comfortable on a 10” foam mattress, which would also be more cost-effective.
Is The DreamCloud Premier A Good Mattress For Couples?
We’ve covered most of the important stuff by now, but there are three additional factors that you should be mindful of if you sleep with a partner. Those are (1) edge support, (2) motion transfer, and (3) temperature.
The edge support for each DreamCloud bed is pretty solid, which means the edges hold up really well when you end up lying along the perimeter of the bed. This often happens when your partner hogs the very middle of the bed and spreads out starfish style while you hug the edge of the mattress for dear life. Luckily with DreamCloud, the edges won’t crease, and you won’t end up on the floor.
As you can see in the image above, DreamCloud is holding up very well along the perimeter. With a lot of all-foam beds—and even some hybrid beds—the edges will compress so much that you feel as if you’re going to fall off of the bed. That’s not the case with DreamCloud, though.
As for motion isolation, the bed does a pretty decent job with this as well. The coils in this bed give it a bit of bounce, but overall, it’s nothing to be overly concerned with.
As you can see above, the bed does a competent job of limiting motion transfer, especially for a hybrid or spring mattress. Ultimately, motion transfer is not a reason to pass on the DreamCloud mattress.
DreamCloud Premier Mattress Review Verdict
DreamCloud Premier and DreamCloud Premier Rest are high-quality, hybrid mattresses that offer consumers a little taste of everything – coils, memory foam, and a euro pillow top. Furthermore, our DreamCloud mattress review team found that the bed is highly accommodating in that it satisfies all types of sleepers and people of all shapes and sizes. Plus, it’s tough to argue with their price tags. You won’t find too many other 14″ plus hybrid mattresses that you can purchase for around $1,600-$1,900 (queen-size).
Side sleepers should opt for the softer DreamCloud Premier Rest mattress, while back, stomach, and combination sleepers will probably like the standard DreamCloud model best.
