The DreamCloud does let off some odor upon unboxing, but consistent with customer reports, we observed the smell dissipating within a day or so.
As with most compressed beds, you can expect some off-gassing with the Purple, which should dissipate within a few hours.
This hybrid mattress is made of several different materials and hasn’t been around long enough to determine if it can last as long as promised. However, a lifetime warranty shows DreamCloud is confident its mattress is built to last.
The Purple is made of a unique polymer foam that is promised to last for decades. However, the company has not been in business long enough to test whether that claim is true.
The DreamCloud is one of the cooler mattresses you can find. Its top layers (cashmere blend cover + gel-infused memory foam) make it extremely breathable without skimping on support.
Purple’s open grid design provides great airflow through the mattress, which keeps you very cool while you sleep.
With latex and coils in its core, the DreamCloud has just the right amount of bounce and responsiveness to it.
As a foam bed, the Purple has minimal bounce. Many couples might prefer a more responsive feel.
Despite its top layer of hyper-soft, tufted cashmere, the DreamCloud has a firmer feel and thus does not contour to the body to the extent that many softer mattresses do. The “Bestrest” coil structure provides excellent support, but not much of a sinking-in feeling.
The “pressure-releasing” material of Purple is designed to relieve pressure points and create optimal spinal alignment, and it is very effective at doing so.
A foam-encased outer edge helps provide edge support, but this is not the mattress’ strongest feature.
Edge support is not Purple’s strongest suit, though it is on par with most foam beds.
The spring coil system within the DreamCloud does not contribute any noise. This hybrid mattress is as silent as any memory foam bed.
The Purple is as quiet as a mattress can be when you move around on it.
The DreamCloud does very well when it comes to isolating motion on its surface. Nothing but good things have been reported by consumers who sleep with a partner.
Many customers who sleep with a partner on a Purple report little to no disturbance when there’s movement on the mattress.
