Note: The Dreamfoam Copper’s construction has recently changed. We’ll be updating our review of it as soon as we finish testing the latest version.
The long and short: The Dreamfoam Copper mattress (13”) is an exceptionally comfortable mattress that is particularly well suited for side sleepers and couples. Despite this high praise, the Dreamfoam Copper is surprisingly affordable—a quality that any shopper can get behind. This mattress was formerly known as the Copper Dreams.
Who It’s Good For; Who It Isn’t
|Dreamfoam Copper is best for:||Dreamfoam Copper may not be best for:|
Dreamfoam Copper is the most luxurious Dreamfoam mattress. With four layers that include generous memory foam comfort layers, the Dreamfoam Copper mattress brings an opulent feel at an affordable price. We brought the Dreamfoam Copper into our Mattress Lab in New York to see how it performed in tests that determine who the mattress is best for. Read on to see if it’s the right fit for you.
Our favorite aspects:
- The Dreamfoam Copper memory foam mattress brings a deeply cradling memory foam feel at a budget-friendly price point.
- This mattress comes in two models—a firm 12” mattress and a medium 13” bed.
- You have 120 nights to try the Dreamfoam Copper bed in the comfort of your home, risk-free.
We brought the Dreamfoam Copper mattress into our lab to get a first-hand experience of what it’s like so we can provide you with a breakdown of what to expect from this bed. Take a look at how it scored in each of our 14 tests below.

|Mattress Advisor Test||Score (Out of 10)|
⭐Total Score for the Dreamfoam Copper Mattress: 8.2/10⭐
Pros and Cons
- A solid 8/10 in cooling means that you shouldn’t have to worry about overheating throughout the night.
- Dreamfoam customer service is helpful and responsive; their 10-year warranty and 120-night trial are quite generous for the price you pay, which is $699 for a queen size.
- Dreamfoam makes all of their mattresses in the USA.
- Because of exceptional pressure relief, side sleepers may look forward to reduced back, shoulder, and even neck pain.
- Combination sleepers will have trouble moving around, as the mattress has a very doughy feel and a low responsiveness score.
- This isn’t the best mattress for sleepers who sleep on the edge of the bed; we noticed some considerable sinkage when we rolled too far to the right or left.
- The off-gassing odor when unboxing was quite strong.
If you sleep with a partner or pet, you likely know how annoying it can be to be sound asleep before suddenly being jostled awake by their movement. Some mattresses do a much better job than others at absorbing and isolating motion rather than reverberating it; The Copper mattress is firmly in the former category.
We ran two tests in order to make this determination: the wine test and the human motion test. The wine test you can watch below. It simply involves observing a glass of wine as movement occurs next to it. If the wine glass remains upright and still, the mattress gets an A+. The second test, human motion, is exactly what it sounds like. Two of our testers lie in bed, one blindfolded, and they try to get a sense of how much motion can be felt when their sight is cut off. The Dreamfoam Copper also performed very well here.
One of the first things our testers noticed while on the Dreamfoam Copper was how soft and doughy the pillow top mattress felt. This quality likely contributed to the high motion transfer score, but unfortunately, it also makes it a bad choice for combination sleepers.
Combo sleepers need to be able to toss and turn throughout the night, changing position easily but settling in quickly. While the doughy surface feels very comfortable once settled into, it also makes it quite difficult to move around.
Unlike combination sleepers, side sleepers should find this bed’s surface delightful. It allowed our tester’s shoulders and hips to sink in just the right amount for these sensitive pressure points to get the relief that they need.
Take a look at the pressure maps below. All that blue and green? That’s a great sign. Red and orange would be something to worry about.
The Dreamfoam Copper mattress comes in two mattress depths, each with a different firmness level. The 12” is a firm mattress that rates at an 8 on the 1-10 firmness scale, with 10 being the firmest. The 13” is a medium firmness bed that registers at a 5/10.
What Sleeping Positions Is It Best For?
Thanks to a medium and firm comfort level, the Dreamfoam Copper mattress works well for side sleepers, stomach sleepers, and back sleepers. Most side sleepers will prefer the 13” medium firmness mattress as the softer foam does a better job at cushioning pressure points. Back and stomach sleepers are properly supported on either the medium or firm option, it just depends on if you prefer a firm or more balanced feel.
Combination sleepers should consider other options. Check out our article on the best mattresses for combination sleepers for some alternatives.
The Dreamfoam Copper mattress sleeps cool for an all-foam bed thanks to the cooling properties of copper and graphite. However, it doesn’t sleep as cool as some hybrid and innerspring mattresses, so hot sleepers may want to consider a cooler bed.
The Dreamfoam Copper mattress supports people who weigh up to 350 pounds. Heavier sleepers will likely do best on the firm (12”) model thanks to firmer foam that better supports bigger bodies.
What Foundations or Bed Frames Can be Used with Dreamfoam Copper?
You can place your Dreamfoam Copper mattress on any flat, sturdy surface, including a box spring, bunkie board, slatted base, platform frame, or adjustable base.
Dreamfoam Copper is a 4-layer memory foam mattress that comes in a 12” and 13” model. While each of these options has the same materials, the thickness of each layer varies to create two different feels. The 12” is a firm bed and the 13” a medium firmness mattress.
- Mattress Cover: A luxuriously smooth weave fabric that facilitates airflow for maximum cooling effects.
- Comfort Layer (1.5”-3”): A memory foam layer delivers close contouring that cushions pressure points. Copper gel and graphite are infused into this layer to free trapped body heat, supporting a comfortable body temperature.
- Additional Comfort Layer (2”-2.5”): A second layer of memory foam brings even more pressure relief and a distinct memory foam mattress feel.
- Transition Layer (2”): A medium-firm foam layer protects the body from the firmer foam below.
- Support Layer (6”): High-density base foam minimizes motion transfer and supports mattress longevity.

Watch Us Unbox the Dreamfoam Copper
The Dreamfoam Copper took about 2 minutes for us to unbox and set-up, which isn’t bad, but unwrapping the plastic was somewhat confusing. Also, the off-gassing odor was quite strong and may take some time to fully dissipate.

Shipping Price and Timeframe
Dreamfoam ships for free anywhere within the contiguous USA through either UPS or FedEx. They charge $125 for shipments to Alaska or Hawaii and $250 for shipments to Canada. Most mattresses will arrive within 10-15 days from the date that you place your order, but because of COVID-19 delays, you may want to check with Dreamfoam for current shipping times.
You’ll receive a tracking number so you know when to expect your new mattress, but you won’t need to stay home and watch the door—unless you’re really excited. That’s because a signature isn’t required for delivery.
The Dreamfoam Copper mattress is backed by a 120-night sleep trial and free returns, which is even more generous than the 100-night trial offered by most bed-in-a-box mattress retailers.
But you should be aware of one thing—there’s a 30-night waiting period. This waiting period is pretty common. It gives time for the mattress to fully break in and for your body to get used to the new feel.

Is It the Right Choice?
The Dreamfoam Copper is a really solid option for shoppers who are after a high quality but affordably priced mattress that excels at pressure relief and motion isolation. It should be noted that we tested the 13” Dreamfoam Copper with the thicker mattress topper. It’s also available in 12” thickness—an option that is $100 cheaper and likely more appropriate for combination sleepers.
As far as the 13” option goes, we do not recommend that those who like to toss and turn throughout the night purchase this mattress. For a mattress that excels in accommodating combination sleepers, check out our Casper Wave Hybrid mattress review.
See How It Stacks Up
It’s hard to beat the Dreamfoam Copper when it comes to a quality product that is also affordable, but still, some shoppers are interested in something slightly more luxurious. For those purposes, you cannot go wrong with any of the Saatva mattresses that we have tested in our lab. Read our Saatva HD mattress review for a look at one of our all time favorites.
Dreamfoam Copper vs Other Dreamfoam Mattresses
Dreamfoam crafts four mattresses made from a variety of materials. Here’s how the Dreamfoam Copper compares.
Dreamfoam Copper vs Dreamfoam Latex
The Dreamfoam Latex is a mattress made from three layers, one latex foam and the others polyfoam. The Dreamfoam Copper is a memory foam mattress with two layers of memory foam and two of polyfoam.
Because Dreamfoam Copper boasts two thick memory foam layers, it has the marshmallow-y feel that memory foam beds are known for. The Dreamfoam Latex mattress, on the other hand, has a more responsive feel that offers a bit more support thanks to its latex foam layer.
The latex mattress comes in soft, medium, or firm and a 10” or 12” model. The Dreamfoam Copper mattress comes in a firm 12” or medium 13” version. Read our full Dreamfoam Latex mattress review for more information.
Dreamfoam Copper vs Dreamfoam Cool
Both of these mattresses have memory foam comfort layers that deliver excellent pressure relief. However, the Dreamfoam Copper mattress is more luxurious thanks to an additional layer of memory foam.
Only the Dreamfoam Cool gel memory foam mattress comes in a hybrid option. The hybrid mattress’s innerspring coils create a bouncy feel that makes it easier to move around on when compared to the all-foam Dreamfoam Copper mattresses.
The Dreamfoam Cool mattress has a medium firmness level, while the Dreamfoam Copper comes in a 12” firm or 13” medium model. If you’re interested, check out our Dreamfoam Cool mattress review.
Dreamfoam Copper vs Dreamfoam Essential
The Dreamfoam Essential is the most affordable Dreamfoam mattress. While both of these beds are memory foam mattresses, the Dreamfoam Copper is much more luxurious.
Dreamfoam Copper comes in a firm 12” model and medium 13” option while the Dreamfoam Essential offers even greater variety. You can choose between five thicknesses—6” 8”, 10”, 12”, 14”—that range from firm to medium-soft. For more info, read our full Dreamfoam Essential mattress review.
Aside from Dreamfoam mattresses, Brooklyn Bedding also offers wonderful bedding and accessories.
Are Dreamfoam and Brooklyn Bedding the same company?
Brooklyn Bedding does own Dreamfoam. Dreamfoam’s mattress line is the more affordable of the two.
Can I leave my new mattress in its box?
It’s best to unbox any bed-in-a-box mattress as soon as you can because extended compression may lead to a mattress that never fully expands. Dreamfoam recommends removing your mattress from its box within three weeks from its arrival date.
Does the Dreamfoam Copper mattress use chemical flame retardants?
No, Dreamfoam Copper utilizes a fire retardant sock made from a fabric blend for non-toxic flame protection.
