Quick Overview

Tempur-Pedic is a mattress manufacturer that is part of Tempur-Sealy International. The brand currently offers the following mattress models.

  • The TEMPUR-Adapt, or Adapt, is available in two distinct designs. The all-foam Adapt is constructed with a memory foam comfort layer and a high-density polyfoam support core. Alternatively, the hybrid Adapt features a memory foam comfort layer and a pocketed coil support core. Both versions of the Adapt have dual-layer SmartClimate cooling covers; they are each considered ‘Medium’ in terms of firmness, or a 5 on the 1-10 firmness scale.
  • The TEMPUR-ProAdapt, or the ProAdapt, is another Tempur-Pedic mattress sold as an all-foam or hybrid bed. The all-foam version is available in three firmness settings: ‘Soft’ (3), ‘Medium’ (5), and ‘Firm’ (7); it is built with a memory foam comfort layer and a high-density support core. The hybrid is offered with ‘Medium’ (5) firmness and substitutes the foam support core for pocketed coils. All versions of the ProAdapt come with a dual-layer SmartClimate cooling cover.
  • The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt, or LuxeAdapt, is an all-foam mattress available in ‘Soft’ (3) or ‘Firm’ (7) settings. It is constructed with a dual-layer SmartClimate cover, memory foam comfort layer, and high-density polyfoam support core.
  • Tempur-Pedic’s newest model, the TEMPUR-breeze°, or breeze°, is also available in multiple settings. The TEMPUR-PRObreeze°, or PRObreeze°, is offered as an all-foam or hybrid mattress; both have a ‘Medium’ (5) firmness level. The all-foam model has a memory foam comfort layer and high-density support core, while the hybrid swaps the foam core for pocketed coils. The TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze°, or LUXEbreeze°, is an all-foam bed available in ‘Soft’ (3) and ‘Firm’ (7) settings. All TEMPUR-breeze° models have dual-layer SmartClimate covers padded with a layer of phase-change material (PCM). According to Tempur-Pedic, the PRObreeze° sleeps roughly 3° cooler than average and the LUXEbreeze° sleeps 8° cooler than average.

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are constructed from high-quality memory foam that offers more longevity than the foams used by most competitors. As a result, these mattresses tend to have longer-than-average lifespans.

All-foam Tempur-Pedic models offer consistent conforming, above-average pain and pressure relief, and exceptional motion isolation. Hybrids, on the other hand, provide great temperature neutrality and strong edge support, along with better-than-average motion isolation. However, the brand’s models have received some criticism as well. Chief complaints about Tempur-Pedic beds include strong odor potential, excessive weight, and price-points that are much higher than average.

Tempur-Pedic offers free White Glove delivery for all mattress orders within the contiguous U.S. Each bed is backed by a 90-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty. Read on to learn more about Tempur-Pedic mattresses in terms of construction, pricing, and owner ratings. We’ll also provide an overview of the brand’s shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar brand recommendations.

Please note: Tempur-Pedic frequently adds and removes mattresses from the selection sold on the brand’s website. This guide reflects the most current lineup. However, discontinued Tempur-Pedic mattresses – including those belonging to the TEMPUR-Cloud, TEMPUR-Contour, and TEMPUR-Flex collections – may still be sold through Amazon.com and other third-party retailers.

Additionally, we have not received enough customer/owner feedback to generate performance and sleeper ratings for the TEMPUR-breeze° mattresses, nor have we conducted product testing for these models. We will update the ratings below once we have sufficient data for these beds.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good (both models)

Tempur-Pedic memory foam and hybrid mattresses typically have longer-than-average lifespans; both versions of the TEMPUR-Adapt should perform for at least seven years.

Motion Isolation
Very Good (foam) Good (hybrid)

Motion isolation is a key strength of TEMPUR-Adapt, which absorbs and minimizes transfer to a significant extent.

Conforming
Very Good (both models)

The all-foam and hybrid TEMPUR-Adapt beds both conform closely for targeted pain and pressure relief, as well as improved spinal alignment for side sleepers.

Sex
Fair (foam) Good (hybrid)

The responsiveness of TEMPUR-Adapt mattresses depends on the selected design, since the hybrid version is more responsive than the all-foam model.

Temperature Neutrality
Good (both models)

The temperature neutrality of TEMPUR-Adapt mattresses varies by selected design, with the foam model sleeping warmer than the hybrid. However, both models come with the dual-layer cooling cover, which can be helpful for those who sleep hot.

Off-gassing
Fair (both models)

Off-gassing is a common complaint regarding Tempur-Pedic mattresses, but hybrid TEMPUR-Adapt models tend to emit less odor.

Edge Support
Fair (foam) Very Good (hybrid)

The hybrid TEMPUR-Adapt mattress offer great edge support, but all-foam models are susceptible to sinkage around the edges.

Noise
Excellent (foam) Good (hybrid)

The all-foam TEMPUR-Adapt mattresses are virtually silent when bearing weight. Hybrid models may produce some noises, but the coils have a foam encasement that muffles squeaks and creaks to some extent.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good (both models)

The TEMPUR-ProAdapt is available in all-foam and hybrid designs, both of which have longer-than-average expected lifespans of at least seven years.

Motion Isolation
Very Good (foam) Good (hybrid)

All-foam TEMPUR-ProAdapt beds minimize motion transfer better than the hybrid version, but both models offer decent motion isolation that should reduce nighttime disruptions for couples.

Conforming
Very Good (foam) Good (hybrid)

The all-foam TEMPUR-ProAdapt is available in three firmness settings, allowing most customers to select a conforming level that aligns with their preferences; the hybrid is exclusively sold with 'Medium' firmness, and provides close conforming with minimal sagging.

Sex
Fair (foam) Very Good (hybrid)

Responsiveness is fair at best for the all-foam TEMPUR-ProAdapt, but the hybrid model should be sufficiently responsive for most couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Very Good (both models)

The all-foam and hybrid TEMPUR-ProAdapt mattresses each come with a dual-sided cooling cover, allowing both beds to maintain a comfortable sleep temperature for most.

Off-gassing
Fair (both models)

Odor potential is somewhat high for Tempur-Pedic mattresses, and both versions of the TEMPUR-ProAdapt emit a fair amount of off-gassing when new.

Edge Support
Fair (foam) Very Good (hybrid)

Edge support for the hybrid TEMPUR-ProAdapt is much stronger than that of the all-foam model.

Noise
Excellent (foam) Good (hybrid)

The all-foam TEMPUR-ProAdapt is virtually silent when bearing weight, but expect occasional squeaks and creaks from the hybrid.

For each sleeper, the ideal Tempur-Pedic mattress will depend on their weight, sleep position, and firmness preferences. The ProAdapt and TEMPUR-breeze° models offer the most versatility, including three firmness settings for the all-foam beds and a hybrid option. The Adapt is also available in all-foam and hybrid options, both of which are ‘Medium’ (5) and best suited for sleepers weighing between 130 and 230 pounds. The LuxeAdapt, on the other hand, offers a ‘Soft’ (3) setting for lightweight people and side sleepers; and a ‘Firm’ (7) design for heavier people and back/stomach sleepers.

Our testing process found Tempur-Pedic mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You have a relatively large shopping budget
  • You tend to sleep hot
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
  • You prefer mattresses with thicker-than-average profiles

How Do Tempur-Pedic Mattresses Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Tempur-Pedic mattresses stack up to other beds.

Tempur-Pedic’s wide product selection ensures that most sleepers will find a suitable mattress. Lighter people and side sleepers may opt for the softer firmness settings of the Adapt, ProAdapt, LuxeAdapt, or PRObreeze°/LUXEbreeze° models. Heavier people, as well as back and stomach sleepers, may find the firmer designs of the Adapt, ProAdapt, and LUXEbreeze° more suitable. Additionally, those who sleep hot on all-foam beds can opt for the hybrid versions of the Adapt, ProAdapt, or PRObreeze°. All Tempur-Pedic mattresses offer longer-than-average expected lifespans, consistent body conforming, and good motion isolation.
