Dream Bed and Dream Bed Lux are all-foam mattresses similar to some of the newer arrivals to the online mattress space. The big difference is that rather than being a mattress startup, Dream Bed is a brand 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. Their mattresses get good ratings from customers at first, but some had issues with durability.
Enso makes a variety of foam and memory foam mattresses that are low priced. You can find their products in local retailers and online. Some of their claims to fame are their use of extra materials infused in their foams such as silver (to help kill bacteria and unwanted pests) and charcoal for cooling. Most find them intitially comfortable, but some had issues with durability.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Dream Bed in this match up!

There were mixed feelings about these mattresses. There are reports from many folks of good initial comfort and happiness with their purchase, but there were others that didn't like their experience. To make sure that one of these mattresses will work for you, read on below.
Reviewers like these mattresses supportiveness overall, which is what you want when you've been sleeping on a sagging mattress from the past few months. However, some have had issues with support long term, so do some extra research to ensure that your choice works with your body.
Edge support is a useful indicator of resistance and support along the sides of the mattress. These mattresses over good support overall, but some folks may experience less edge support over time.
Mattresses don't seem to be as long-living as they once were. Finding a mattress that remains cozy after 15 years just isn't as easy anymore. Yet, finding that diamond in the rough can save you lots of money. Unfortunately, customers give these mattresses mixed reviews on durability. Some customers report no problems, but others have issues with the durability over a shorter horizon than average.
Some sleepers are comfortable with their new beds, but others were not as satisfied with how the mattress made them feel. Even though there are those that like these mattresses, overall they have lower customer satisfaction than average. Look on below for more information if this mattress will work for you.
Support isn't exactly the same as firmness. Deep support and spinal alignment is essential to a healthy night's rest. Sadly, these mattresses have some mixed reviews when it comes to support. Most find that they provide a good amount of support at the beginning, but some customers described feeling less supported as time went on.
For those that need to sit on the edge of their bed or roll to the side, even edge support is very important. For most, these mattresses do a fine job with edge support at the beginning, but some had complaints that edge support wasn't all it could be long term.
Mattresses with lasting support are phenomenal, but difficult to discover. These mattresses are not rated well for their longevity by reviewers. That being said, some may provide comfort for years and years, while other mattresses may become uncomfortable faster. If you are a heavier individual, read up on your options because you may be at a higher risk for durability issues from some mattresses.
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!View More Reviews
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!
Sleeping so much better then ever. Thought my lack of falling asleep quickly was an issue I was having. But I’m not having any problem falling asleep with my new memory foam mattress. I also find I sleep without waking up often.
Great bed! I have a bad back and it’s supportive and firm. When it was new it was very firm however it feels Egged when broken into.
Absolutely love this mattress! Best sleep I've had.
Went to one location and picked what we felt would be our perfect mattress, went to a second one and was talked out of it and so far not what we wanted but staying optimistic
The cooling on this mattress was fenominal, but it was a little too firm for our liking.
We got the firm mattress and it may be too firm for our tastes. However we have been sleeping well and the mattress is clearly high quality. The 15 minute test in the store was not enough.
Bed is firmer than store but I rather tgat than soft.
I really enjoy my new mattress, I was skeptical at first, but it turned out better than I imagined. It stays nice and cool.
I bought this mattress in February for our second home. We look forward to going so we can get a good nights sleep!! It is the most comfortable mattress I have ever had the pleasure of sleeping on.
I have another memory foam bed and know they sleep warm. I had concerns about getting another one because I am a hot sleeper. The display mattress at store without sheets felt very cool when laying on it. When you get the mattress home with sheets its not as cool. I got a cooling memory foam topper and it still sleeps warm. In the winter time it will be heavenly but it the summer time not so great. My dogs love it and there's very little motion transfer. I would recommend it just not for people who sleep warm.
Very comfortable! I have a really bad back and usually wake up with pain in my back and shoulders with my old mattress. I have not had any pain so far. I am happy with my new mattress. I took off one star because it does sleep warm. That will be good for the winter time, but I wonder how it will feel in the warmer months.
I purchased this mattress on the recommendation of the salesman and on the guarantee that the foam is unlike memory foam and would not soften after a year. Initially the mattress was comfortable but now a year has past and the mattress is softer than any traditional mattress I have had previously and the sides are now softer & more broken down than the rest of the mattress ( and this is with a average size female sleeping in the bed). This mattress is just an overpriced memory foam mattress and it definitely will not hold up for 10 or 20 years. I would not recommend.
I bought this a month ago and I'm very happy with the mattress.
The wife has adapted very well to the mattress . The jury is still out for me.
I bought my bed a few weeks ago and I have enjoyed it ever since!! So comfortable!!
It is great....dream bed. It is so comfortable. I love it.
The manager treated us well. He really made sure we were comfortable on our choice, and followed-up to ensure we were happy.
Bought the split king. My wife loves it. I hate it. It's hot, really hot. I move to the guest room everynight about 2 am. Wish I could get my old mattress back. Looks like we will be sleeping in seperate bed rooms.
Make sure you definitely let the bed air out! My husband loves the bed, so far for me it's just killing my back, had to sleep on the guest bed for a week just to be able to get around. I can't feel the cooling through the sheets and I have great sheets. I think the bed is over priced and I'm letting the first 30 days of this 120 trial period pass but it will be going back.
I’ve had this for about a month and so far am VERY pleased.
We bought our mattress about a month ago, the service was excellent, the recommendations where right on target. I haven't slept this good in years. Mattress Firm has some really great selections with solid price ranges for everyone. Couldn't be happier
I recently purchased this. So far it’s been a great sleep
We are a couple that has ALWAYS disagreed about our mattress. He likes firm, I like plush. I have to say though, this mattress has been perfect for both of us! We can both get a good nights sleep and be comfortable in our bed. It has the support of the firm my husband needs, and the comfort of the plush that I like. We have bought 3 different mattresses in the last 18 years and this has been the ONLY one we BOTH like! Inly draw back is I wish the side was a little bit firmer when I sit on it, but for sleeping it's perfect!
I love this mattress so much and was comparing it to a temperpedic, its awesome
I bought this to take to my new home and it has helped to decrease my back pain. This bed was the best investment I could have made!
My wife and I looked at all mattresses in store and was told it would be cooler to sleep on than the one we had but is warmer, we were showed the blue sealer on mattress and said It would cause it to be cooler, actually warmer than last, had to have the adjustable base though, and now finding problem to get sheet sets for the king split. You get two twin sheets, two cases but no king top sheet have to overlap the two twin top sheets, mess. Will see still have little time to decide on keep it or look at other ones there.
I've been sleeping on the mattress for about a month-it's the most comfortable mattress I've ever owned! Previously had a TempurPedic, but this one is even better. It sleeps cool thanks to the cooling gel and is neither too hard or too soft. I bought the adjustable frame which works well with it, and the bundle with the mattress protector, bamboo sheets and cooling pillows. Now I need a tv in my bedroom so I can spend more time on this awesome mattress!
We back and traded for another mattress. Mattress was just uncomfortable.
Bought in July and is incredible. We sleep so nice. We love the bed. The only problem is getting out of it in the morning! I would highly recommend this bed for: People that have sleep issues, bad backs, heat/cold issues. This is the best bed we have ever owned. At age 60, we have had a lot. I would say invest the money now in this bed so you can sleep better and wake up refreshed.
I am very happy with the purchase. I have been sleeping on this mattress more than a month and now i can give 5 stars . The mattress is mild firm exactly i was looking for and finally i can get a good sleep. Thank youView More Reviews
I really like my new mattress its perfect for me ,it came well packaged and easy to open , I let it set 3hrs then put it on the bed...
It gave us quite a laugh to see the box--which was small considering what was in it. The mattress is all that I expected--however, my old bed frame is about 3 inches too short in width. No matter, it's not noticeable and I just let it hang over. I guess mattresses have gotten bigger since my bed was made some 50 years ago.
There are numerous so-called memory foam mattress makers out there. Tempur-pedic is the original and the name tells you a little bit more about the product. First, the foam doesn't remember how you last slept in it. Your sleep imprint is gone very quickly. Second, the foam DOES react to your body temperature in creating your sleep imprint and the mattresses do feel warmer than standard mattresses - not a bad thing in the winter if you live in a cold climate! More of these are being made to allow air to circulate around your body via the mattress covers that are put on and how they "breathe." Many people in their reviews say they've bought a foam mattress topper to help keep them cooler.
Okay, to this Enso product specifically. First, most people will complain about a smell emanating from these when they are first unrolled from the plastic wrap that they are rolled in when delivered. It's natural that the gas from the foam does this. The good thing about the Enso product is that they use some charcoal filtering to help with that. In our case, we purchased the Enso Dreameaver at a local furniture store 10 weeks ago for $525. Brought it home since it's a mattress-in-a-box and laid it out in a different bedroom to flatten out and air. While there was some odor initially, we put the mattress on our existing boxspring/foundation that same evening. There was virtually NO smell and the mattress was just fine without buying a foundation.
We had a 12-year-old Simmons extra firm mattress that was beginning to feel 'harder' to us. This mattress has a good medium firmness and, despite trepidation about how we'd sleep, it has lived up to its billing and reflects what many reviewers say about moving from boxspring to memory foam. We have fewer aches and pains. I'm a side sleeper and my spine does align better and the achiness I often had with my shoulder and neck areas has been considerably minimized.
I tried out numerous memory foam and latex mattresses in department stores, discount mattress shops and mattress specialty stores. There are differences depending on the mattress maker, the thickness of the mattress and your own sleep comfort preference. At the end of the day, we bought a mattress that we thought would suit our sleeping styles, if you will. I should note that my wife commented that I snore less than on the old box spring - another point made by reviewers.
If you're in the market for a memory foam mattress, seriously consider an Enso product - unbelievably good price for the quality!
Bought this mattress because my husband and I were actually in a double, spring-mattressed bed, and as much as I love him-- he rolls around in his sleep and I was getting fewer good nights' sleep and felt squished (did I mention he kicks in his sleep?). The old mattress (a Serta) was fine, but it didn't suit the two of us as it had the one of me. We took the plunge and bought a bedroom set with a queen-sized bed, like grown-ups. :) So, then it was time for a mattress. Since "memory-foam" was one of the newer choices and neither of us had slept on one, it intrigued us. I researched and found that they can sometimes have a weird initial chemical or rubber smell (which makes sense), and can run "hot" if you are a naturally warmer person, temperature-wise. So with those two concerns in mind, I stumbled across the Enso mattress collection at a local furniture retailer. The gel topper was a great thing-- took care of the "running hot" issue for the most part-- I don't run that warm and when I do, honestly, I just sleep on top of the sheets with a cotton blanket. We do have a ceiling fan that I was running on low when we bought the mattress (it was summertime); however, I truly didn't notice much of a smell at all from it.
I will say that for fall / winter, I did buy a flannel duvet cover, hypoallergenic duvet, and mattress topper (yes another)-- and while I have THE MOST comfortable bed around, it gets hot, but mostly from the flannel / duvet. We are only in Virginia, after all...many winter days in the 40-50s. If I lived in Minnesota, for example, I'd probably throw flannel sheets on there and another quilt (hate being cold).
We've had the Enso mattress for about a year now, and it has softened up a bit. If you like a firm-yet-soft mattress and don't need something springy or super-giving (like an old "grandma's feather bed" feeling), you'll like this. If you like your mattresses firm, know that gel / foam mattresses do tend to soften up over time (something the saleslady reminded us), so go up in initial firmness.
We recently came back from a long weekend at a cabin where the bed used to be our absolute FAVORITE; all we ever talked about was how comfortable the beds were...guess what? They didn't hold a candle to our Enso mattress....we've gotten spoiled. ;o)
I bought the ENSO Dreamweaver from a local furniture store. We had an almost new, over $1000, mattress from one of the big name mattress stores. I was waking up several times a night with shoulder aches, hip aches, etc. When I got up in the morning, it took me several minutes to unkink, stand up straight and walk without pain. I researched and purchased the Dreamweaver and moved the more expensive mattress to our guest room. WOW! The very first morning I popped right out of bed with no pain or stiffness and I slept through the night with no pressure pains. For several weeks, I would wake up expecting to be stiff, but have not been even once. There was no discernible odor even the first night. I love this mattress.
Bought our Dream Weaver from a local Mattress dealer Saavy Mattress. We had a wonderful expensive pillow top and with back issues I was having decided I needed something a bit more firm. Gave it 3 weeks to convince me this was the right mattress, it was not. 5 Years later the mattress is sinking in the middle and my sleep is beyond lacking. I wake up more tired and with aches and pains. Don't waste your money, not all memory foam mattresses are equal.
But this mattress about 4 years ago and it is sagging in the middle. We spend more time in our beds than in our cars, buy a better mattress.
We just purchased this mattress from a local furniture store and we LOVE our bed so far. My husband and I switched from our spring mattress. While our old mattress was a good one ($2k+), it was time for a new one. I was sleeping upside down in attempt to find comfort and the hubby was tired of waking up to feet in his face. We went shopping around and tried a few memory foam mattresses in the store. The hubby is not picky, he could fall asleep on gravel... I, on the other hand, need pillows just so, mattress just so, and sheets just so! What drew me to the Enso Dreamweaver is the initial cushion when you first lay down but then the firmness that supports my back (I have a bad back and neck). I don't like to sink into a bed too much and this mattress had good firmness (but knowing that it will soften a little will still be ok). It was slightly firmer than the others in the store. The other thing that helped me make my decision in choosing a mattress was the firm edging. On most memory foam mattresses, you'll find that sitting at the edge will have you sliding right off. This support means that you have more snoozing real estate! Again, compared to the others in the store, this product provided better results. The price was decent ($1k for a Cal King), so that made it easy. And regarding "sleeping hot", I am perfectly fine! I have an insane amount if body heat, and the gel topper keeps me cool (and we live in Hawaii, it's summer, nights are 80 degrees). We unpacked the mattress at home, let it air for 6 hours and put it on our platform bed. There was no odor! When I wake up in the morning, I don't have the aches and pains that I did before (I was taking 4 ibuprofen by lunch daily to deal with my neck pain and headaches it gave me) AND my husband wakes up to my face instead of feet. :) Now, the only thing I have to get used to is how low the bed is now. My old one was a 16 inch mattress, I believe, and this 10 inch is a lot smaller. I'm considering getting the foundation, if I can't adjust my platform to be higher. My point, this will be the best money you've ever spent. I love my bed!
after doing months of research and checking in local stores, i found the 10 inch dream weaver in queen size on a different e-tailer and compared to the prices here on amazon, i got a fantastic deal.
there was no smell when i unpacked it. let it sit for about 12 hours to get its shape back. and now after a solid year of use, it is still an awesome mattress. it will hold body heat and can get hot but i put a sleep tite waterproof mattress pad by malouf on it and it isn't quite so hot. i also make a habit of rotating the mattress once a month and it seems like it is retaining the firmness.
if you're not familiar with enso mattresses, just do a google search for enso sleep systems. the next time i'm mattress shopping, that is the brand i'm going to look for.
we absolutely LOVE LOVE this mattress! looked around for quite awhile, found this in one of the big box stores and decided on it, because it felt the best, good firmness, and were inticed by the advertisements of it not off-gassing as much out of the box. although it did have some smell for a couple of hours, it was very minimal and we were able to sleep on it the same night as it arrived in the mail. also- the price on amazon was significantly less than the lowest price out there we could find, by about $300! great deal for a great mattress! also, purchased the Malouf Mattress Protector, which if you purchase on the same day has a warranty on it, worth it for a little extra protection on the mattress, and also much cheaper on amazon than the mattress stores.
You know the mattresses that grandma would throw on the floor when you went to stay overnight at her house. This is it. When I get up in the morning I have to climb out of the pit that I have sank into. There is no support here.
I purchased ENSO Mattress with the PB475 adjustable frame. I have a pace maker /difibulator implanted. Your owners manual advised some frames have Neodymium Magnets that will negate the effectiveness of my devices. Until I can make that determination I can not sleep on this bed... All calls to your company can not tell me if the PB475 have these magnets.... Can somebody please tell me if the Magnets are in fact part of PB475..
I have been buying these mattresses for myself and my family as well as my condominiums for over 18 years with nothing but rave reviews.. People ask all teh time where can they get a mattress like the one they slept on at my house or in the condo.. Wonderful value and comfort.. I highly recommend for the money any of their products as I have had both the memory and hybrid products and have been very pleased !!!
We purchased the Enso with the gel topper in 2012. We love the mattress. We rotate it properly. We both sleep well and it is very easy to clean. My husband had a stroke and I was able to get it perfectly clean. I do wish it could be flipped over but otherwise. I love it!
