The dream bed is a newer memory foam / latex mattress brand similar to some of the newer arrivals to the mattress space. The big difference is that it is not a mattress start up, but is operated by Mattress Firm, which is one of the largest mattress companies on the market with retail stores Sleep Train, Mattress Discounters, and 1-800-MATTRESS as part of their enterprise. Dream Bed consists of two memory foam mattresses with a top latex layer, one named 'the original' and one cooling foam version. Additionally, their foams are Certipur certified so they won't harm your family.
The Dream Bed is made from a variety of CertiPUR-US foams that won't off-gas nasty toxins. They make a Dream Bed cool version, which is slightly different than the traditional Dream Bed. We'll show you the differences. Here is what's inside:
Layer 1: The woven cover is a blend of polyester that keeps things cool and dry.
Layer 2: 1.5'' latex foam in the Dream Bed (the Cool Dream Bed has a very thin gel layer instead).
Layer 3: 1.5'' transitional memory foam in the Dream Bed (the Cool Dream Bed has 3''of memory foam).
Layer 4: 7'' of base support foam in the Dream Bed (7.5'' of base support foam in the Cool Dream Bed).

Most agree that the Dream Bed sleeps comfortably. There are some durability concerns for heavier sleepers and the consensus is that the classic Dream Bed sleeps quite warm.
The Dream Bed is rated medium firm, but for those that are heavier, it may feel softer than medium.
Based on the medium firm nature of the mattress, it should alleviate back pain, but there are reports of the opposite from heavier sleepers.
The original Dream Bed had many complaints about heat retention, but with the release of the Cool Dream Bed those reports have dissipated. That said, if you are a very warm sleeper, please be aware that this may still retain some heat.
Those with a medium to light build looking for a medium firm mattress and are not extremely warm sleepers.
This was easy to setup and came quickly as advertised. It's comfortable and I can't feel my spouse move in the night as well!
Bought this bed after reading about its donation of a bed for a bed. What I didn't realize was that doing that may have made a less durable product. After a few weeks of having the mattress, I am noticing a bit of a dip in my bed. I have turned it over and it seemed to go away, but I am still concerned long term. Overall, pretty pleased with the mattress for the price though.
Good mattress but there seemed to be a very distinct odor when I got it. I know that it is Certipur so it shouldn't contain harmful chemicals, but it definitely reaks. But, once I fall asleep -- gotta say, boy am I comfortable. Can't complain about that!
The delivery was supposed to come on a Thursday, but it didn't show up until late the following week. It definitely made for an uncomfortable week with the wife yelling on about her back pain, but luckily once we got the thing, it ended up being pretty darn comfortable. So in the end, I am happy.
Got the mattress last month and really loving it. I am sleeping like a baby!
I ordered the Dream Bed original and no one should ever buy this. I am usually too cold at night, but this thing makes me claustrophobic and sweaty all night. It is like sleeping in hell.
I had a terrible Sealy mattress that started to poke my sides with its coils. But now, I am super comfy nightly in my Dream Bed. I wish this bed was around in the 90s because I would have bought one for all my kids. Now, I am just sleeping soundly and loving my new bed.
I am a heavy side sleeper and I thought that this dreambed was going to be good for me, but unfortunately, it is way too hot and also my back kills me when I wake up. I feel like I am sinking into the thing and already it has a big indent. I mean, I am not that fat, but this makes it seem like I am the world's biggest man. What the hell?!
I had a plush top mattress before I bought the Dream Bed because of the price. I should have just kept with what I knew because the memory foam is not for me. It smells, hurts, and feels like I am sagging all the time. I wish that I had bought an innerspring, but I am stuck with it.
Can't complain about the dreambed. I got the twin for my daughter who is 7 and she absolutely loves it. We didn't even need a mattress topper because of how soft it is. She snuggles under all of her blankets and tells us how much she loves it every morning when we try to get her up for school. Only problem? She never wants to leave her bed.
No more pain! I had terrible pain with my traditional mattress, but the Dream Bed really has made this pain vanish. I was as surprised as anyone because I suffered an accident from falling off a ladder, and nothing would save my back. This bed has changed me though. I can't say enough good things!
