Beautyrest Lux Pillowtop vs. Dreamcloud 08 May 2021 09:26 #1

This decision is driving me insane. The mattress I think I liked the most in store was the Beautyrest Lux Pillowtop (which, I believe, is the W Hotel mattress.) But I'm worried it's too "old school." I also liked the Dreamcloud, but I don't know if that's because I actually like it or largely because they've been advertising so much to me. The other one I liked was the Brooklyn Bedding Spartan in the Firm, but it might be a bit too firm. I felt mediocre about the: Casper, Nectar, Saatva, Leesa, Puffy, Luuf. I did NOT like any latex mattresses or the Purple.

I think I'm going to go with the Beautyrest Lux Pillowtop from Mattress Firm, but am I making a huge mistake?

I have scoliosis and sleep on my side or back. 5'5, 140 pounds.

Beautyrest Lux Pillowtop vs. Dreamcloud 12 May 2021 07:49 #2

Hey anarodit,

Welcome to TMU's forum :) ! Thanks for your question.

This decision is driving me insane. The mattress I think I liked the most in store was the Beautyrest Lux Pillowtop (which, I believe, is the W Hotel mattress.) But I'm worried it's too "old school." I also liked the Dreamcloud, but I don't know if that's because I actually like it or largely because they've been advertising so much to me. The other one I liked was the Brooklyn Bedding Spartan in the Firm, but it might be a bit too firm. I felt mediocre about the: Casper, Nectar, Saatva, Leesa, Puffy, Luuf. I did NOT like any latex mattresses or the Purple.


Congrats on your new mattress shopping adventure! Good job on the store visits, sounds like you've made quite a few comparisons and are closer to narrowing choices down :) . From the list of mattresses that you are "lukewarm" on, it sounds as if you're on the fence as to whether memory foam would be a good choice. If you didn't like latex mattresses or Purple/ buckling column gel, you can rule both of those categories out. What mattress are you currently using and how old is it? What are some qualities that you like about it? What are some that you can do without?

Just curious: what about the Beautyrest Lux Pillowtop seems "old school" to you? The sure way to know that you aren't making a "huge mistake" is to understand what the mattress's specifications are to assess its durability long-term. You may find a review of Phoenix's article "Matress Specifications You Need to Know" helpful for showroom visits and conversations, it's a good one to print and bring along until you are comfortable asking the questions on your own. What size mattress are you planning to purchase? What is your budget?

Thanks for including your personal stats , anarodit. Your sleeping positions and body weight/ distribution, as well as personal preferences, all play a role in what materials and constructions are better suited for you. Combination sleeping is the most common of sleeping positions and a bit more challenging from a comfort and support design standpoint. You may find that a mattress with a transition layer of some type can help you to sink in enough to help with pressure relief and also help keep you from sinking down too far and causing back issues. Do you tend to move about during the night or sleep fairly quietly? What advise does your Doctor have regarding your medical condition and mattress comfort/ support needs? Looking forward to your reply and thanks.
