Ultimate Dreams Copper Gel Memory Foam Mattress Review
Ultimate Dreams Copper Gel Memory Foam Mattress is one of 13-inch models in the Dreamfoam Bedding family. The product details say it’s featuring copper and taking advantage of thermal properties of copper. Don’t take it seriously. It’s nothing but a gimmick. This mattress is simply designed and has only two layers, 3-inch gel memory foam and 8-inch foam support core. The top layer is designed to provide sinking feel and the bottom one serves as a rigid support. The copper gel memory foam mattress isn’t too soft or too firm, just medium. If you’re not sure what firmness you prefer, a medium mattress is the better choice. Ultimate Dreams Copper Gel is a US made product and has US standard high quality. But it’s not expensive or costly. Its price is as low as China made mattresses. Competitive price and reliable quality make it one of best deals in cheap memory foam mattress market.
Ultimate Dreams Copper Gel Memory Foam Mattress Features
Firmness grade: 5 (1-10 softest to firmest)
The firmness of Ultimate Dreams Copper Gel mattress isn’t stated in product details so we don’t know how Dreamfoam Bedding defines this mattress, soft, medium or firm. The 3-inch copper gel memory foam makes it feel firmer than traditional memory foam models without gel infusion. But the top layer still provides mild softness and cushion feel. The comfort feel is medium and firmness grade is 5. Most Dreamfoam Bedding mattresses are close to soft side. But this one gives you firmer support and doesn’t let you sink in too much. Your whole body receives just-right support with all pressure points being removed. You don’t wake up many times at night.
Copper gel memory foam isn’t that good
Copper is the only feature making it different from other mattresses but the cooling effect is limited. So just ignore it and take it as regular gel memory foam. Gel infusion is so far the most effective technology to reduce body heat trapping to the greatest extent. But it can’t remove heat retention. The gel memory foam does improve performance in regulating temperature on bed. Most owners don’t have sleeping hot issue on it and only a few report it’s too hot. If you’re hot natured, it’s recommended to add a mattress pad, or plus a cotton quilt.
Great for side sleeper and pregnant women
Ultimate Dreams Copper Gel 13-inch is a nice option for side sleepers. Side sleeping has higher requirements for the mattress and comfort than other sleep positions. It needs you to sink deep enough to get your body well supported and the mattress to have a really firm layer providing rigid support to align your spine naturally. This 13-inch bed meets requirements. The medium feel top layer gives side sleepers enough depth to sink and thick foam base offers rigid support.
This Ultimate Dreams mattress is very cheap and about 1/5 the price of the name brand mattress. Why they’re so cheap? At first, it’s an off-brand so the price doesn’t contain any brand premium you need to pay extra. It’s only selling on the internet and not running local stores. That being said, the price doesn’t contain too much employee salary or rent. Besides, you don’t see overwhelming advertisements anywhere and the price doesn’t contain any marketing fees. At last, Dreamfoam Bedding is a factory-direct brand.
Made in the USA
Dreamfoam Bedding is a small mattress brand and has their own factory. They guarantee all mattresses and materials are made in the USA. If you do a bit search, you will find massive China made mattresses are out there and US made is rare. There is no need to explain the difference between US made and China made. Just check out what owners say. Cheap China made foam mattresses are critisied by owners for its poor durability and quality. Some models lose support or sag in a few months. Dreamfoam did a great job in providing US made mattress at such an affordable price.
Warranty and return policy
The mattress has 10 year warranty and that means you can ask for replacement or repair in 10 years. But customers are responsible for the transportation cost. It covers defects in materials and workmanship not including softness increase or any visible sag less than 1.5 inches. You can’t say it’s a good or bad warranty because the warranties in mattress industry are same. Dreamfoam Bedding has excellent return policies. For purchases from their websites, they give 90 day free return. You can return the mattress for any reason without paying any fees and get all your money back. For purchase from Amazon, you have only 30 days but also no transportation fee and all money back. They’re trying to reduce risk you buy the mattress.
Ultimate Dreams Copper Gel Memory Foam Mattress Downsides
As I mentioned before, gel foam isn’t the ultimate solution to heat retention issue and it can’t remove the issue completely. A few owners complain it feels very hot and makes them sweaty. If you’re in free return period, you can return it. If not, add a mattress pad.
