Cool Gel Dream Bed Review
Get ready for a soft sleep
The Cool Gel Dream bed is a softer mattress. It boasts a 3-inch layer of memory foam at the top. The memory foam does a great job conforming to the sleeper. It does sink quite a bit so not the best mattress for back sleepers. We give the Dream bed a 4 out of 10 on the mattress firmness rating. (10 being the firmest)
One exciting feature of the Dream Bed is the adjustable frame. The mattress is able to bend and shift to meet any frame shape. If you need to sleep upright, the Dream Bed will work with your frame. The Dream bed mattress will also work on any flat surface. The bottom of the mattress has tiny studs to help with grip. There is no need for box springs, though they won’t hurt.
A snuggly bed that will cradle you
The Dream Bed had quite a lot of sinkage. Sleepers sunk an average of 3 inches into the mattress. This is great for side sleepers but not the best for sleepers with back problems. We hesitate to recommend such soft mattresses to back sleepers, but the reviews have online have been very positive.
The other negative of a soft memory foam top is the lack of responsiveness. Unlike firmer beds like the Leesa, softer beds require more energy to move around in. This means getting out of bed is harder on those cold mornings.
Dream Bed Coolness And Gas.
It is always interesting to see how each different mattress company deals with the heat issue. Softer mattresses with a thick memory foam tend to be hot. Mattress Firm dealt with this problem by creating a thin layer of cooling gel on the Dream Bed. The gel sits just beneath the cover and wicks away the heat as you sleep. Sleepers find that the Dream bed sleeps relatively cool so it must work to an extent.
Customers have reported a bit smell after opening the box. It takes a day or two before the chemical smell disappears. We recommend opening the box with your windows and doors open.
