How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
What is the DreamCloud pillow?
The DreamCloud pillow is a firm-feeling pillow for cushion-like comfort. 🧸
It's made with shredded memory foam that contours around the head and shoulders and a removable Tencel cover.
Memory foam is made from viscoelastic cells that adapt to pressure and heat.
This makes them a great material for pillows as they can mould around the head and shoulders and relieve pressure.
But more on that later...
How was our experience when we tested this pillow? 👇
Is the DreamCloud pillow good for my sleeping position?
The last thing you want to do is purchase a pillow that is unsuitable for your sleeping position. 😨
Here’s what you need:
- Side sleepers - A high loft, firm pillow that fills the space between the head and shoulders.
- Back sleepers - a medium loft and feel pillow that aligns the spine and neck.
- Stomach sleepers - an extra soft, low-loft pillow (or no pillow at all) to keep the head close to the mattress.
So, how did the DreamCloud pillow stack up when we tested it in each position?
Are DreamCloud pillows good for side sleepers?
We found the DreamCloud pillow most comfortable in the side sleeping position.
The high loft of the pillow encourages optimal alignment of the spine and neck when sleeping on your side. 🙌
The firm feel of the pillow helps to keep the head raised and supported.
There was a very slight bend in the neck but overall the pillow felt comfortable in the side sleeping position.
We think the DreamCloud pillow would be suitable for most side sleepers who prefer a solid pillow.
Are DreamCloud pillows good for back sleepers?
The DreamCloud Pillow is suitable for some back sleepers. 😍
In this position, the head was raised and helped to keep the neck fairly straight with the spine.
However, the pillow was still slightly too high for some body types in this position.
If you are petite, you might find the DreamCloud pillow too firm and deep for this position.
Instead, consider a slightly softer pillow with customisable height, such as the Simba Hybrid pillow.
Are DreamCloud pillows good for stomach sleepers?
However, we felt the DreamCloud pillow was too high for those that sleep on their stomach.
The firmer feel and high depth of the DreamCloud pillow created a bend in the top of the spine. 😨
This causes tension, which can lead to waking with neck and back pain.
Instead, consider an adjustable pillow for customisable comfort.
These pillows have multiple layers or shredded foam that can be added and removed to your desire.
We recommend using just one layer for stomach sleepers, two for back sleepers, and three or more for side sleepers.
DreamCloud pillow cover
One of our favourite things about the DreamCloud pillow is the removable cover. 🙌
The DreamCloud pillow cover is made with the same quilted fabric as the DreamCloud mattress.
The thick quilted design of the cover gives the pillow a premium feel.
The side of the DreamCloud pillow also has a mesh strip to provide optimal ventilation. 💨
This allows any hot air built up inside the pillow to disperse out easily and provide a cooler sleep. ❄️
The Tencel fibres used in the outer cover are great for absorbing moisture, promoting breathability and being kind to the skin.
DreamCloud pillow size
The DreamCloud pillow is a one-size-fits-all standard size pillow.
It measures 74 x 84 cm (29 x 33 inches) and is about 15.5 cm ( 6.10 inches) deep. 📏
The DreamCloud pillow is much deeper than your average pillow.
Even after a few months of testing this pillow, we were pleased to see it kept its shape and size.
You should puff up your pillow regularly (as often as you change your sheets) to ensure it stays in a good-as-new shape and condition. ✨

Should I buy a DreamCloud pillow?
For those who prefer a bulky pillow with that “al dente” feel, the DreamCloud pillow could be the cure to your insomnia. 😴
They’re a great choice for side sleepers who need a high-loft pillow, particularly if you have broader shoulders.
The DreamCloud pillow is the perfect cushion for sitting up in bed and reading.
These memory foam pillows come as a pack of two - so why not treat yourself and your partner to a pair of brand new pillows?
