This comparison has highlighted the special features and technologies of both the Saatva and DreamCloud mattresses. Both are loved by consumers and earned top marks in our lab evaluation. Those who are still on the fence about which is the best mattress can consider their sleep position, budget, sleep environment, and desired buying experience.
Hybrid mattresses appeal to all sleeping positions because they pair responsive and supportive coils with contouring foam layers. We agree that the Saatva and DreamCloud both work well for back, side, and stomach sleepers alike. So, your choice comes down to preference.
The DreamCloud is a medium-firm mattress (5-7/10 on the firmness scale) with multiple foam layers, while the Saatva has 3 pillow top firmness options, 2 coil layers, and one memory foam layer. Those who enjoy the cradled feel of memory foam will likely favor the DreamCloud, while those who prefer the support and buoyancy of coil systems will fare better with the Saatva.
Saatva’s mattress is offered in 3 firmness levels that will appeal to different sleep styles. Back sleepers will benefit from the firmest option. Stomach sleepers need the balance of softness and support found in the luxury firm option. Finally, side sleepers will experience the most comfort with the extra cushion of the plush soft option.
The Saatva and DreamCloud are both priced for the average consumer. Overall, they range from $799—$1,699. The DreamCloud is slightly more expensive than the Saatva, so budget-sensitive buyers will save more with the Saatva. However, if you are shopping for a King or California King sized mattress, the DreamCloud is actually the cheaper option. Both companies provide financing options—Saatva uses Klarna and DreamCloud uses Affirm.
Both the Saatva and DreamCloud scored 8.5/10 on our cooling evaluation. They also each incorporate coil systems in their build, which naturally improve the overall breathability of your mattress. For edge support, they scored 8.5/10 in our evaluation, so can trust that you won’t slip off the edge of your bed if your partner really stretches out at night (not naming any names…).
Lastly, if sleep trial and warranty are important to you, DreamCloud’s trial period and warranty are far superior to Saatva’s. DreamCloud lets you test their mattress for a full year. That’s right, you get 365 days to decide whether or not it’s the right fit for you. Alternatively, Saatva offers 120 nights to trial their bed. If you are an indecisive shopper, DreamCloud is the clear choice.
DreamCloud also offers a lifetime warranty, meaning you pay one price for a mattress for life. During the first 10 years, they will send you a brand new mattress if your original is shown to have manufacturer defects or material failures. For the remainder of the warranty, they will repair and re-cover your mattress at no cost.
In comparison, Saatva offers a 15-year warranty. Most mattresses last between 10-15 years, so while it’s not a lifetime warranty, it protects your mattress for it’s estimated lifespan. For the first 2 years, Saatva will replace your defective mattress at no extra cost. During years 3-15, they will repair and re-cover your mattress for a $99 transportation fee both ways.
Saatva also has a Fairness Replacement Option. If you select this option, Saatva will replace your mattress for the whole 15 years, except during years 3-15 they charge a percentage of the mattress’s original cost. Additionally, you get to keep your first Saatva mattress to use as you choose.
It’s worth mentioning that both Saatva and DreamCloud provide free white glove delivery service for all of their mattress purchases. Not only will they deliver your mattress, they will bring it inside and set it up on your mattress frame. No heavy lifting for you! Saatva will also remove your old mattress for free. DreamCloud provides mattress removal and disposal or donation for a small fee.
