|Tempur-Pedic is a well-regarded brand name within the mattress industry. Established in 1992, this Swedish company helped popularize memory foam beds among sleepers worldwide. A total of 11 mattresses are currently available from Tempur-Pedic. Ten of these models are sold as part of three exclusive collections – Cloud, Contour, and Adapt – while the last remaining mattress, the GrandBed, is a standalone luxury model. All 11 Tempur-Pedic mattresses are available as all-foam memory foam beds. Additionally, two models in the Adapt series are also available as memory foam hybrids.
Tempur-Pedic mattresses have several advantages over the brand’s main competitors. The beds are highly durable and have an expected lifespan of at least seven years, outlasting most similarly constructed beds. Tempur-Pedic mattresses also conform to the sleeper’s body to provide even support, improved spinal alignment, and targeted pain and pressure relief. Other advantages include great motion isolation and no noise when bearing weight. Tempur-Pedic offers Free White Glove delivery to customers in the contiguous U.S., as well. However, it should be noted that Tempur-Pedic beds have price-points that are significantly higher than those of the average memory foam bed.
Read on to learn more about each current Tempur-Pedic model. Below you will find our picks for the top four Tempur-Pedic beds. Our choices are based on verified customer and owner experiences, as well as intensive product research and analysis.
Best Tempur-Pedic Mattresses for Back Sleepers
Editor’s Pick – TEMPUR-ProAdapt
Best Value Mattress – TEMPUR-Adapt
Best Luxury Mattress – TEMPUR-Flex Supreme Breeze
Best Mattress for Pressure Relief – TEMPUR-Contour Elite Breeze
Of Tempur-Pedic’s 11 current models, the TEMPUR-ProAdapt – one of the three models in the Adapt series – is a standout for several reasons. For one, it offers a wide selection of firmness and design options. The mattress is available as an all-foam mattress with ‘Soft’ (3 on the 1-10 firmness scale), ‘Medium’ (5), or ‘Firm’ settings, making it suitable for back sleepers in any weight group. Additionally, the TEMPUR-ProAdapt is also available as a memory foam hybrid with ‘Medium’ firmness. Both designs offer good body conforming and above-average pressure relief.
Temperature neutrality is another key strength. The all-foam TEMPUR-ProAdapt features a dual-layer cover designed to sleep fairly cool, while the hybrid maintains a comfortable temperature thanks to strong airflow throughout the pocketed coil layer. Both versions of the TEMPUR-ProAdapt also isolate motion very well and produce minimal noise when bearing weight, making the mattress a good pick for couples.
Like other Tempur-Pedic mattresses, the TEMPUR-ProAdapt is fairly expensive compared to other memory foam models – currently $3,599 in a Queen size. However, Tempur-Pedic offers free White Glove delivery throughout the contiguous U.S.; this includes in-home assembly and old mattress removal at no extra charge. The mattress is backed by a 90-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty; both of these offers apply to all Tempur-Pedic models.
Like our Editor’s Pick, the Best Value Tempur-Pedic Mattress – the TEMPUR-Adapt – is part of the Adapt series and available in both all-foam and hybrid designs. Both versions of the TEMPUR-Adapt are ‘Medium’ (5) in terms of firmness, making the bed ideal for people who weigh 130 to 230 pounds. The all-foam model features the same dual-layer cooling cover as the TEMPUR-ProAdapt, allowing most sleepers to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the night; the hybrid’s strong air circulation also offers great temperature neutrality.
The TEMPUR-Adapt offers moderate conforming that hugs the body without sinking excessively, offering great relief for sleepers who experience aches and pains in their neck, shoulders, and lower back. The mattress also absorbs and minimizes motion transfer to a significant extent; the all-foam version is virtually silent, while the hybrid produces minimal noise thanks to its pocketed coils (which tend to be much quieter than other spring types).
The TEMPUR-Adapt is our Best Value pick because its price-point is lower than other Tempur-Pedic models; it currently costs $2,199 in a Queen size. However, this is still more expensive than most competing all-foam models, making it a good pick for shoppers with bigger budgets.
The TEMPUR-Flex Supreme Breeze is a hybrid mattress offering ‘Medium’ (5) firmness and an 11.5″ profile. This makes the bed ideal for back sleepers who weigh 130 to 230 pounds, since those in this weight group normally prefer beds that balance body-conforming and reinforced support. A high-density foam transitional layer and foam-encased pocketed coils help maintain an even surface with minimal sagging, resulting in fewer aches and pains for back sleepers. Those who shift between their back and side may also enjoy sleeping on the TEMPUR-Flex Supreme Breeze, since it is soft enough to hug the body and improve spinal alignment.
The mattress is optimal for hot sleepers, as well, thanks to a comfort layer of cooling foam and strong airflow throughout the pocketed coils. The TEMPUR-Flex Supreme Breeze – like most Tempur-Pedic mattresses – is also highly durable, and its expected lifespan exceeds that of the average hybrid by a considerable margin. Other benefits include better-than-average motion isolation and minimal squeaks and creaks when the bed is bearing weight.
The TEMPUR-Flex Supreme Breeze has one of the highest price-points among Tempur-Pedic’s current line – $3,799 in a Queen-size – but for its strong performance, we’ve chosen it as our Best Luxury pick.
All Tempur-Pedic mattresses provide above-average levels of pressure relief, but we’ve selected the TEMPUR-Contour Elite Breeze as our top pick because it offers a balanced experience for most back sleepers. The bed is 12.5″ thick and ‘Firm’ (7), making it a good option for sleepers who weigh more than 230 pounds, but its thick comfort system offers close conforming and targeted pressure relief for lighter back sleepers, as well. The foam conforms to the body to a moderate degree, aligning the spine and alleviating discomfort without excessive sinking or hugging.
The TEMPUR-Contour Elite Breeze also isolates motion very well and makes no noise when bearing weight. This can be beneficial to couples who awaken easily due to movement or noise. The mattress offers exceptionally durability, as well, with an expected lifespan of at least seven years.
The TEMPUR-Contour Elite Breeze is currently priced at $4,699 in a Queen size, making it one of Tempur-Pedic’s more expensive models.
Tempur-Pedic’s current mattress offerings consist of seven different memory foam and hybrid models. This selection includes a wide range of firmness ratings – from ‘Soft’ to ‘Firm’ – in order to accommodate customers with varying sleep preferences. Sleeper weight is an important factor to take into account; the sleep experience of someone who weighs less than 130 pounds, for instance, will be much different from that of someone who weighs more than 230 pounds.
Read on for a detailed breakdown of all current Tempur-Pedic models.
There are three general positions associated with back sleeping:
None of these positions are considered ‘more correct’ or ‘better’ than the others; personal preference and comfort is the most important factor.
When shopping for a new mattress, back sleepers should consider the following:
