Can a comfortable latex bed be purchased on a tight budget?
Dreamfoam Bedding is a family owned company focused on providing its customers with an affordable night's rest. Owning their own factory allows them to market their products at a competitive price. This also allows them to manufacture their mattresses tailored towards individuals, allowing for customization on all of their latex products.
This overview of the Willow Eurotop Latex bed is based on our scoring system and will evaluate this mattresses’ customizable firmness options as well as other preference-based items that sleepers find important. We evaluated this product in a medium configuration, but it important to remember that the firmness of this mattress is completely customizable with a Dreamfoam representative.

You will love this mattress if you:
- Have a tighter budget – Who said quality cannot come at an affordable price? This mattress offers comfort that can be bought on a shoestring budget. Dreamfoam is known for making comfortable mattresses that keep their customers happy and with extra cash in their wallets.
- Want firmness customization – When you order Willow, you will be contacted by a Dreamfoam representative so they can help you find a firmness option that works for you. The 3-inch Talalay Latex comfort layer will be tailored to fit you and your sleeping needs. If the firmness you select does not work out, Dreamfoam will exchange it for a firmness that works better for you.
- Low Motion Transfer – This is a great option for couples who do not want to worry about being woken up at night. Movements are anchored to one side of this bed as partners get in and out, allowing you to sleep peacefully unaware.
You might not like this mattress if you:
- Need a memory foam feel – Memory foam is known for its conforming properties that leave sleepers feeling like they are resting in a deep hug. Latex is far more responsive and far more buoyant than traditional memory foam. It is important to note that the polyfoams in this model have similar conforming properties as memory foam while allowing you to take advantage of the responsiveness that comes with latex.
Construction (Materials & Quality)
You mattress ships to your door compressed in a box. Step-by-step installation instructions are included with the mattress. It is compatible with all kinds of foundations, as long as it is sturdy, but the manufacturer recommends a platform base.
Place the mattress on the base, unwrap it, and let it expand. Within 20 to 30 minutes it should be ready for you to sleep on!
The Euro-top cover is quilted with 100% biodegradable bamboo fibers and has 1.5 inches of poly reflex foam attached beneath. This is soft and should act as a great initial comfort layer by providing a soft cushion for pressure relief. Along the perimeter is a zipper that opens to reveal the inside of the mattress in order for latex layers to be exchanged or replaced if needed.
- The first layer is a 3-inch layer of 40% natural 60% synthetic Talalay Latex blend that should provide comfort and support by immediately conforming to the contour of your body. This layer performs admirably by providing surface bounce that makes moving around in this mattress a snap. Latex is manufactured with a series of pinholes that help provide airflow for additional cooling
- The base layer is 8 inches of high-density polyfoam that enables this bed to endure your comfort needs for many years. This provides deep level support and additional airflow to help keep you comfortable.
Firmness (Support & Feel)
When tested at a Medium, we scored this mattress at about a 5 on our firmness scale. Our scale runs from 1 to 10, with a 1 being as soft as a cloud and a 10 is as hard as a rock. This particular model should leave you in a nice gentle cradle.
It is important to remember that firmness will be completely customizable with a Dreamfoam representative when ordering Willow. They will work with you to find the setting that works best for you as sinkage in the bed might vary based on your particular firmness selection and your individual weight. Split side options are available in the King size options for couples that prefer different firmness settings.
The Euro top provides this bed with a soft cushioning layer that transitions well into the 3-inch latex layer beneath. These two layers combine to provide this bed with excellent responsiveness. The polyfoam on top does help cushion some of the initial bounce, helping this bed remain comfortable but still a great option for combination sleepers who switch positions during the night.
Back sleepers should really enjoy how they sink through the Euro top and find comforting support with the latex layer. The bed conforms to the body’s curves, helping those who lie on their back feel secure in a gentle cradle.
Side Sleepers may get the best experience from this bed. The weight of their shoulders and hips should push through the Euro top and latex layers and into the 8-inch poly foam base. They should experience ample pressure relief that helps them sleep through the night.
This Medium firmness setting may not be best suited for all stomach sleepers. The hips should stay pretty well supported, keeping them aligned with the rest of the body, but some exclusive stomach sleepers, especially ones with heavier middles, may want additional support. These individuals may want to consider a firmer option of this model when placing their order.
For those with higher weight considerations, the manufacturer does recommend a weight limit of 900 pounds for this model, but overall, this should be a comfortable sleeping option for most sleepers. The customizable firmness option available with this product makes it possible to find a firmness setting that fits your needs right out of the box.
Motion isolation keeps movements to one side of your mattress so you stay asleep while your sleeping partner tosses and turns all night long.
Willow does a pretty good job with motion transfer. The combination of latex and poly foams keep motion contained to one side of this mattress. Unless your sleeping partner is jumping up and down on their side of the bed, you need not worry about them waking you up.
Edge support is great for those that share a bed with a partner or have kids hopping in and out all night long. Typically, bed-in-a-box brands do not score super high in this category because they require a compression process so they can be shipped in a smaller box. A bed with a strong perimeter can increase the available sleeping surface area, as it will allow you to sleep snuggled up against the edge of your bed.
Sitting on the side of this bed should have you feeling well supported. Bottoming out should never be an issue, but these edges do compress slightly, about average for industry standards. With that said, while sleeping on the edge, you should never feel like you might roll off and onto the floor.
