Dreamfoam Ultimate Dreams 10" Gel Mattress or 12" Dreamfoam Aria? 01 Jun 2017 10:29 #11

Hi Ari,

I’m sorry, but I can’t work as a personal mattress concierge and report back to individuals about particular specifications as I come across them. I only have the time to comment upon queries presented here in the forum.

Phoenix


Didn't mean to imply that, sorry

HI Ari,

No problem. It would be wonderful if it could be possible to have a huge clearinghouse of information on mattress specifications, but with the thousands upon thousands of mattresses available and the constantly changing configurations, it unfortunately would be a task impossible to accomplish.

Thanks Phoenix :)
I have read the guidelines.
I cannot find a memory foam bed that meets the requirements and relieves pressure points. I just cannot sleep on a slab.

Big box stores use low quality materials but it seems most bed in a box make beds lower in quality also . For those of us with a higher bmi that is.

I cannot believe there is no bed for me. I am not the size of a house this is ridiculous :(


This entire post is so spot-on! It's frustrating and since I am in the lower-200's, I am starting to let go of the idea of the need for higher foam density. I was recently 210 pounds anyway, but moving across the country and skipping workouts for six months caused a ten pound increase. If I'm back down to 200-210 pounds, I'm not sure if it would be worth the higher density foam to deal with the potential long-term discomfort if the HD foam doesn't break down. I do want 5-lb foam as a support comfort layer, ut am starting to get over the 6-lb+ top layer. It simply no longer exists at a company with a decent return policy or sleep trial.

Ari, did you by any chance ever try out any of the Ultimate Dreams mattresses? It looks like the one comparable to the Cloud Supreme has all 4-lb foam and the 13" has 4-lb and 5-lb foam. I sure wish the 12" had 5-lb foam in the support layer like the 13" because I would be all over that. I'm naturally worried about the 3" of 4-lb foam in the 13" mattress. The 1.5" of 4-lb seems acceptable, especially if the 2.5" below it was 5-lb foam. Maybe I shouldn't worry about it at all. Who knows, haha!

The price point and 120-day trial of the Dreamfoam mattresses are outstanding. I may be giving one of these a try regardless of my weight, as I am in the low-200's and would be able to return within 120 days. If the Rhapsody Luxe or Cloud Supreme are no longer floor models, I'll just have to deal with it. I'm having a hard time seeing the value in spending $1400 to $2000 for floor models without a sleep trial. My best bet would be to buy a new Tempur-Pedic and figure out how the mattresses work long-term, via the 90-day sleep trial. Since I'm not willing to plunk down $3000 to $4000 for a new Cloud Supreme or Rhapsody Luxe, the sleep trial is not gonna happen. These Dreamfoam beds are around $540 shipped with a 120-day trial. Incredibly difficult to pass up on.

I completely feel you. Called Dreamfoam today and found out they lowered their density from 4-lb and 5-lb to 3.5-lb in all models. It's officially a wrap. I'm done with mattress shopping for a while, haha! We realized we love the soft comfort of the Cloud Supreme but don't trust the durability enough to buy it without a 90-day trial. Taking a liking to the soft material and realizing that soft is better for side sleepers, we'e decided to stick with our current innerspring plush mattress (old Seria iSeries Applause), snag some proper pillows, and stick to sleeping on our sides. When it wears out, we'll approach this issue again.

For now, we're gonna spend the money on a bedroom set and price up our new digs. We recently moved across state and are sort of starting over, so the bedroom set and sectional will be much more worthy upgrades at the present time. To be completely honest, I'd say the new Luxe Adapt Firm might be my favorite of all mattresses I tried in the past few weeks. I'm naturally skeptical of the specs since T-P has been skimping and hiding them in recent years, but when the time comes to upgrade, we'll likely consider it.

Hey 560andrising,

Thanks again for the update about Dreamfoam, at least they were straight up with their changes, these reductions in quality and density for many businesses are driven by industry-wide price increases on poly foam, and in this ultra-competitive market they are afraid to increase their retail prices. Good luck when you are back in the mattress market.

Regards,
Sensei

Hey Sensei! I think you are spot on. Cost of materials is likely driving this. Consumers are always price conscious, especially in the internet age. Price hikes run people off and the vast majority won't know or care about specifics such as density, ILD, and so forth. Thank you for the well-wishing! I'm sure we'll get it all figured out at the appropriate time!
