Sagging mattresses can make your body feel too close to the ground for comfort. A poor mattress can lead to a variety of pains and aches. Our This Old House Reviews Team has consulted Mattress Advisor to help find the best bed for you.
Comfort is a fundamental human characteristic. Your mattress should be the most comfortable piece of furniture in your home. Your bed is your place to rest, recover from illness, or relax when needed. The most comfortable mattress will allow you to get the best and deepest sleep possible. You’ll also be free from the aches and pains that sometimes hinder your progress with house projects.

The mattress scored 8.5 out of 10 or more in all comfort categories, including cooling (8.5/10), pressure relieving (9/10), spine alignment (9/10), and responsiveness (9/10). Because DreamCloud is structurally sound, every inch of it scores a perfect 10/10 for edge support. You could pair the mattress with a DIY Queen-size storage bed frame for maximum space-saving. DreamCloud guarantees your bed’s durability with its lifetime warranty and year-long sleep trial.

The mattress received high scores for edge support and spine alignment as well as excellent marks for pressure relief (9/10), cooling (9/10) and
