Dreaming of drifting off to sleep in a deep hug?
Dreamfoam, a sister site to Brooklyn Bedding, is a family-owned company that believes high-quality beds should be affordable to everyone. That’s why they created this latex mattress that feels high-end for an affordable price.
This in-depth overview of the Dreamfoam Aspen will break down the construction and features of this all-foam product. Our recommendations for who should buy this bed and which sleeping positions it should work for might give you an idea whether or not this mattress will work for you.
Read through this review for our complete analysis of the Aspen latex bed, or skip to the end for our overall impression and to learn how this product has been scored.
You will love Aspen if you:
- Want multiple comfort options – This bed is available in soft, medium, or firm comfort options so shoppers can find the feel that works best for the position preferences.
- Are looking for enhanced pressure relief – The upper materials are designed to conform to the sleeper to provide a moderate cradle that should relieve pressure from the hips and shoulders as they press into the mattress.
- Want an affordable latex option – Mixing latex and foam layers allows the company to reduce costs so they can offer you a comfortable bed with an impressive price tag.
You might not like Aspen if you:
- A classic innerspring feel – Buyers might notice more contouring than is often found in a classic innerspring, though there still is some bounce that cradles your pressure points while keeping it easy to reposition.
Construction (Materials & Quality)
This is an all-foam product that combines two layers of latex and foam. The mattress is conveniently compressed and shipped inside a box.
This item can be used on a wood foundation, a platform bed, or a slatted base with the slats no more than 3 or 4 inches apart to prevent too much sagging between the slats. The company sells proprietary frames through their website.
The cover features a Quilted Polyester Knit Top with Soft Reflex Foam at 1 inch thick. This should feel soft and plush as sleepers lie on it. The overall height of this mattress is 10 inches.
- The top layer consists of Talalay Latex at 3 inches thick. This material is meant to contour to the body, allowing for enhanced pressure support and promoting proper spinal alignment through conforming lumbar support.
- The bottom layer is a 5.5-inch High-Density Convoluted Base Foam. This is designed to provide a sturdy base to the bed and the sleeper. The convoluted design should promote airflow to prevent heat from building up in one spot.
Firmness (Support & Feel)
We have given Aspen’s medium option a 5.5-6.5 on our comfort scale, soft and firm models are also available. An item with a score of 1 on this scale would be the softest thing you’ve ever touched, while 10 would be impressively firm. Aspen’s score should mean this mattress would feel medium to medium-firm to most shoppers.

Upon immediately lying on the cover, shoppers should notice a cool and soft sensation. Soothing pressure relief should activate once sleepers begin to sink into the top layers, allowing them to enjoy a deeper cradle that conforms to the body. The lower levels should then begin to push back, offering firm support.
There should be good upper bounce, with much less deeper bounce as that material is a bit denser than the upper latex. The materials should respond very quickly, removing body impressions and promoting easy repositioning so you shouldn’t feel rooted in the sinkage. This should aid combination sleepers as they roll around and change position during the night.
Most side sleepers should enjoy pressure relief as their shoulders and hips sink into the upper materials, which should help reduce pushback in these areas. Those looking for a more plush experience can look into the softer version of this mattress.
Most back sleepers should feel a body-conforming contour. If you’re concerned your hips may dip too low, you may want to opt for the firmer comfort setting that should reduce this sinkage.
Some stomach sleepers might find their hips sink too much, causing the back to become unaligned. The firm model should help keep these shoppers well-supported while still comfortably cradled.
The company recommends a weight limit of about 900 pounds for the Queen version of this product.
Being an all-foam item, this bed should do very well to minimize motion transfer. The foam materials should absorb most vibration and movement to reduce disruption from restless partners. Co-sleepers or people sharing their bed with children and pets should enjoy the benefits of these dense foams.
Shoppers may sink a few inches when lying, with deeper compression noticed when sitting on the edge. Most people should begin to notice firm support from the base layer that should prevent them from bottoming out. Despite the slight compression when lying on the edge, most should feel stable without having to worry about slipping out of the bed.
- Multiple Firmness Options – Soft, Medium, and Firm versions of this mattress are available for purchase.
- Trial Period – Shoppers can take up to 120 nights before officially deciding whether or not this bed works for them.
- Warranty – The company offers a 10-year warranty.
- Shipping – Shipping is free in the contiguous United States. An additional fee is required to ship to Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada. Many of Dreamfoam’s products are available through Amazon’s Prime shipping.
- CertiPUR-US® Certified – The foams in this product are certified to have low levels of toxic materials like formaldehyde or lead.
- OEKO-Tex® Certified – This item features a Class 1 OEKO-Tex certification, which indicates it is safe for use for children and infants under 3 years old.
