Perfect Cloud claims that they are not an ‘average’ mattress company. With more than a decade of experience in designing innovative mattresses, this company’s mission is to provide an improved product that will enhance the quality of sleep. In order to achieve this goal, Perfect Cloud uses the highest quality materials and thoughtful designs to deliver luxury mattresses to consumers.
The Gel Pro 12 Inch Memory Foam mattress is a true testament to Perfect Cloud’s commitment to provide superior products that deliver an exceptional night of sleep. This mattress delivers four layers of high quality materials, including high density air infused memory foam, regular air infused foam, gel pro memory foam and high density support foam. All materials are CertiPUR US Certified and are hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites.
In order to reduce costs, the Elegance Memory Foam mattress from Pure Cloud is sold exclusively online through the online retailer Amazon.com. This factory direct shipment method certainly does help to bring costs down; however, it also means that you can’t try the mattress out before you purchase it. As such, it can be difficult to determine whether or not it will actually meet your needs. That’s exactly why we created this buyer’s guide: To provide you with detailed information about the mattress so that you can better gauge if it will suit your needs before you purchase it.
- Four layers of high quality, durable foam
- Minimal heat retention
- Incredible breathability
- Great pressure point relief
- Proper spinal alignment
- Pain relief
- Comfortable in all sleep positions
- CertiPUR US Certified
- Low off gassing
Below is our final score of the Perfect Cloud mattress based on multiple criteria that we use when testing all of our mattresses.
What’s It Made From…
The Perfect Cloud Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress is made of four separate layers of foam, including high density air infused memory foam, regular air infused memory foam, gel pro memory foam and high density support foam. These four layers combine to create a mattress that is a total of 12 inches thick.
The Top Layer
The first layer of the Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress from Perfect Cloud is made of 1 inch of high density air infused memory foam. This is the layer of the mattress that conforms to your body, giving you a hug that is customized for your specific needs. The infusion of air improves the circulation of body heat, which minimizes heat retention and helps to keep the mattress a cool and consistent temperature. Because it is high density in nature, you will also experience deep compression support right in the first layer.
The Second Layer
Next is a layer of 1.5 inches of regular air infused memory foam. This material further enhances the breathability of the mattress and prevents air from being trapped inside. It also continues to cradle the body and responds to the pressure that is placed on it, offering more support where it is needed the most and less support where it isn’t needed.
The Third Layer
The third layer of the mattress is made of 2 inches of thick gel pro memory foam. This material provides ultimate pressure point relief and helps to keep the spine in proper alignment. Additionally, the infusion of gel absorbs and body heat that reaches this level and wicks away moisture, thereby helping the mattress remain cool and comfortable.
The Fourth Layer
Finally, the base layer of this Perfect Cloud mattress is made of 7.5 inches of high density base support foam. This layer is responsible for supporting the upper three layers and helps them retain their shape. It also provides additional deep compression support so you can sleep without having to worry about developing any pain.
Holding in the four layers of this mattress is a blended, super soft, highly breathable knit cover. The cover is thin and allows for improved air circulation, thereby helping to reduce heat retention in the mattress even more. It highly resilient; when we pulled on the cover, it quickly bounced back to its original shape. Additionally, the cover has a zipper and can easily be removed for spot cleanings.
Aesthetically speaking, the cover offers a modern, yet natural look. The top is white with square blocks sewn into it. The white extends partially down the sides, where it meets with a taupe color. The two colors create a flowing curved design where they meet, adding a touch of sophisticated elegance.
Hands on Review
Perfect Cloud offers their 12 Inch Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress exclusively online. While this certainly makes the purchasing process easier and it reduces the cost, which are positives, the downside is that you can’t try the mattress out before you buy it.
Our goal in creating this buyer’s guide is to help you determine if it will meet your needs. In order to do that, we have fully assessed the key components that impact the overall quality of the mattress. The components we analyzed include:
On a firmness scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the hardest, we rate the Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress from Perfect Cloud a 5.5. This means that it is a medium firmness mattress, so it isn’t too soft, yet it isn’t too soft. In other words, it is designed to meet the needs of the average sleeper.
The responsiveness of the foam layers really makes this mattress comfortable for sleepers between 40 and 400 pounds. We found that the foam contours to the body just right and that it certainly reduces pressure points, which makes it truly comfortable. It also reduces the need to toss and turn throughout the night so you can get a more restful night of sleep.
In terms of motion transfer, we were very pleased. The foam layers absorb the energy that is created by motion, so you won’t be disturbed by your sleeping partner’s movement.
Pain Relief and Support
There are key problem areas that are known to develop pain when sleeping on a traditional mattress. In order to combat the development of this pain, Perfect Cloud has designed their Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress to provide pressure point relief and deep compression support. This means that they weight of the body is evenly distributed throughout the mattress so you don’t have to deal with extra pressure being placed on the body.
Heat retention is a common issue experienced with mattresses that are made of foam. Body heat tends to get trapped in the foam, which then heats up the surface of the mattress and in turn, heats up the sleeper. Sleeping hot leads to discomfort.
To combat heat retention, Perfect Cloud included materials that would pull body heat away from the sleeper and circulate it back out of the mattress. The two layers of air infused memory foam improve air circulation, while the gel pro infused memory foam wicks body heat away and keeps the sleeper cool and comfortable.
Off gassing is another issue that is often associated with foam mattress. Some of the chemicals that are used in the production of the foam have an odor, and that odor can be emitted from the mattress when it is new.
The Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress from Perfect Cloud is CertiPUR US Certified, which means that it isn’t made with those harsh chemicals that are known to create an odor. We didn’t experience any noticeable odor coming from the mattress when we unpackaged it. If you do, just place it in a well ventilated room and the odor should quickly dissipate.
Since foam mattresses absorb the energy that is created from movement, they often offer minimal bounce back. As such, intimate activities can be compromised, as more energy needs to be exerted in order to partake in them.
Though this mattress does minimize motion transfer, we were pleased with the level of bounce back that it offered. Though you may have to exert a little bit more energy than you would have to on an innerspring mattress, we don’t think you will have to put too much extra effort into activities that are amorous in nature.
Sleeping Position Ratings
Body weight and pressure is placed on the body in different ways when you sleep in different positions. In order to combat the buildup of pressure that often leads to pain while sleeping, the mattress needs to be able to properly support body weight. We looked at how the Perfect Cloud 12 Inch Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress supported different sleep positions. This is what we found…
Backs sleepers should find that the Perfect Cloud Visco Pro Gel Memory Foam mattress will deliver a nice level of support and comfort. Body weight is evenly distributed throughout the mattress and the spine is held in proper alignment. This means that there is reduced pressure buildup in the back, the neck and the shoulders, which leads to increased comfort and a more restful night of sleep.
Back Sleeping score: 9.25/10
Stomach sleepers will also enjoy the comfort and support that this mattress offers. Again, body weight is distributed evenly throughout the mattress, so you shouldn’t experience any buildup of pressure on your back shoulders or neck. This means that you will have a more enjoyable night of sleep.
Stomach Sleeping score: 9/10
Side sleepers are often prone to developing pain, specifically in their neck, shoulders and hips. That’s because all of their body weight is concentrated in one spot, which leads to excessive pressure buildup on these points. Offering deep compression support, this mattress really does offer great pressure point relief for side sleepers.
Side Sleeping score: 9.25/10
Bed Frame Compatibility
Perfect Cloud designed their 12 Inch Visco Gel Pro Memory Foam mattress to be compatible with all bed frames. This means that you can use it on a slatted bed frame, a box spring, a platform bed or even the floor. In order to enjoy optimal results, however, we do recommend using the mattress on either a solid platform bed or on a bed that has durable slats that are spaced no more than 3 inches apart.
Warranty, Guarantee and Trial Period
- Warranty: 25 year limited manufacturer warranty. If you experience any issues with this mattress that are the result of a defect in manufacturing within 25 years from the date of purchase, you can contact the manufacturer and they will repair or replace it for you.
- Guarantee: While Perfect Cloud doesn’t offer a guarantee, Amazon, the distributor it is sold through, does. They will fully refund your money if you are not satisfied with the mattress.
- Trial Period: Again, Perfect Cloud doesn’t offer a trial period; however, Amazon does. If you are not satisfied with the mattress for any reason within that 30 day period, contact Amazon and they will pick up your mattress and refund your money.
