Dreamfoam 12 in 1 Mattress Overview
The 12 in 1 mattress is an inexpensive, customizable mattress made by Dreamfoam Bedding. Dreamfoam Bedding is a family owned manufacturer that operates online via amazon.com. This mattress actually has 12 possible “feels” because you can layer the foam in the way that works best for you, so there’s no one specific feel for this mattress. However, I would say that there are 3 main combinations that the majority of people would use. I recommend bookmarking this page for reference.
I explain in more detail how this mattress works in the video below:
This mattress is constructed with 3 foam layers, each with a different firmness.
Blue layer = soft
White layer = medium
Red layer = firm
Foam density: 2lb
The layers are then encased in a zipper top cover.
I have this displayed on the Simple Life foundation, which is a great foundation to pair this with. It’s a folding foundation which allows for easy access through hallways, around corners, and narrow stairways.
Who is this best for?
This mattress is best for those looking for something customizable, perhaps more affordable than something like Sleep Number. Since it’s customizable this can work for you no matter what position you sleep in. This is a great option for students. It would also make a great choice for a guest room bed.
Price. It almost seems too good to be true. A queen is $407.76 at the time of this video, so to say it’s less expensive than the average mattress sold in mattress stores is putting it mildly. Just so you understand why it’s so much less expensive, it’s not because of cheaper materials, it’s actually higher quality foam than what you would find in numerous more expensive mattresses. This is pretty dense, very durable foam. And the reason why they can offer it for so much less is because they’re not sold in stores. There’s no middle man. Dreamfoam bedding is factory direct so their overhead is much lower.
Another positive is the fact that it’s customizable. This is the first $400 customizable mattress I’ve ever seen. So, it’s super easy to find the right configuration that works best for you. This mattress will also work on an adjustable base.
Another positive is all of the foam is certified by CertiPUR to contain low VOC’s, no PBDE’s, phthalates, ozone depleters, formaldehyde or heavy metals. Hardly any foam smell with this one.
One minor negative is that even though there’s a lot of configurations with this mattress, you can’t configure each side of the mattress with the exception of the king size (Cal King or King). So there’s a slight limitation there. Having said that, you still have more flexibility with this bed than most mattresses out there.
Another one is that even though you do get a 10 year warranty, longevity won’t be as good on this as a good quality innerspring mattress, or an all latex mattress or other types of mattresses that are typically in a higher price bracket. That’s just the nature of polyurethane foam. There are things that you can do to ensure that it lasts a decent amount of time like using a good waterproof mattress protector from the very beginning. Luna makes a good one. Another thing you can do is flip and rotate the foam layers every so often. That will help it wear evenly.
And some people may have a hard time with the concept of buying a mattress without trying it out first, though I have noticed that seems to be changing. So, lets say it was in a store. You really could only try out the one configuration that they have displayed on the floor. It would just be too much for a store to allow people to be tossing around huge layers of foam to see what they like. So, trying it out in your own home is actually better because it allows you to find the ideal configuration without having to deal with a high pressure salesman, and you get to sleep on it. You can always return it if it doesn’t work for you within 30 days.
In conclusion this is a great budget option. This is one of my top picks for a “best budget option” mattress. Great for students, kids, guest rooms and great for anyone who has sticker shock with how much mattresses are going for in fancy showrooms. This is a great very inexpensive alternative to sleep number and the Tempur-Pedic choice models as well.
