Quick Overview

Tempur-Pedic offers a wide selection of mattresses that vary by firmness and thickness. Most are memory foam mattresses, but two models are also available in hybrid designs. The brand’s models include three mattress collections and one standalone model.

All 11 Tempur-Pedic mattresses will be discussed in detail further down the page. Please note that additional Tempur-Pedic models that have been discontinued may be available for sale through Amazon.com and other third-party retailers, but this review will focus on the brand’s current line.

Sleeper experiences with Tempur-Pedic vary by individual model, but most beds offer moderate to close conforming, improved spinal alignment, and pressure point relief. The firmer mattresses are optimal for heavier individuals due to their thicker-than-average profiles, while softer beds may be the best option for side sleepers and those weighing less than 230 pounds. Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses isolate motion transfer very well and produce no noise when bearing weight, making them a good pick for couples, as well. However, price-points for Tempur-Pedic beds are significantly higher than average.

Read on to learn more about Tempur-Pedic’s memory foam mattress selection, as well as the company’s customer policies and overall reputation.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good

Cloud mattresses typically perform for at least seven years, which is longer-than-average compared to competing memory foam mattress models.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

Motion isolation is a key strength of Cloud mattresses, which absorb and minimize transfer to a significant extent.

Conforming
Very Good

Cloud mattress owners report close body contouring and above-average pressure relief, particularly among side- and back-sleepers.

Sex
Fair

Cloud models lack responsiveness and may not be responsive or bouncy enough for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Fair

Like many other all-foam models, Cloud mattresses can trap heat and sleep too warm for some.

Off-gassing
Fair

Off-gassing potential is somewhat high for Cloud mattresses, but odors tend to dissipate over time.

Edge Support
Fair

The Cloud mattresses offer minimal support in places where people sit, and sinkage may occur around the perimeter of the bed.

Noise
Excellent

All mattresses in the Cloud collection are virtually silent when bearing weight.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good

Contour mattresses have an expected lifespan of at least seven years, giving them better durability than many all-foam competitors.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

Contour mattresses isolate motion transfer fairly well, making them a good option for couples.

Conforming
Very Good

Contour mattresses are firmer and conform to a moderate extent, making them suitable for back and stomach sleepers, as well as heavier individuals.

Sex
Fair

Contour models are on the firmer side, giving them more responsiveness compared to softer all-foam beds.

Temperature Neutrality
Fair

Contour mattresses may trap some heat but they are not associated with excessive warmth.

Off-gassing
Fair

Contour mattresses have higher-than-average odor potential, but off-gassing smells usually dissipate in a matter of days.

Edge Support
Fair

Edge support in Contour mattresses is questionable at best, leaving the perimeter of the bed susceptible to sinkage.

Noise
Excellent

All mattresses in the Contour collection are virtually silent when bearing weight.

Sleep Rating

Durability
Very Good

Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses typically have longer-than-average lifespans; mattresses in the Adapt series should perform for at least seven years.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

Motion isolation is a key strength of the Adapt mattresses from Tempur-Pedic, which absorb and minimize transfer to a significant extent.

Conforming
Very Good

Mattresses in the Adapt collection offer balanced conforming and good pressure relief. Multiple firmness options ensure that most sleepers can find a conforming level that suits their needs and preferences.

Sex
Good

The responsiveness of Adapt mattresses depends on the selected firmness, but those with firmer models say their bed is responsive enough for sex. ProAdapt and Adapt models with the hybrid design are more responsive than all-foam Adapt models.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

The temperaturen neutrality of Adapt mattresses varies by selected firmness and design; we found that softer models with convoluted foam base layers and hybrid designs tend to sleep the coolest. All models come with the dual-layer cooling cover, which can be helpful for those who sleep hot.

Off-gassing
Fair

Off-gassing is a common complaint regarding Tempur-Pedic mattresses, but hybrid Adapt models and those with convoluted base layers tend to emit fewer odors.

Edge Support
Good

The hybrid ProAdapt and Adapt models offer great edge support, but all-foam models in the Adapt series are susceptible to sinkage around the edges.

Noise
Very Good

The all-foam 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

Because Tempur-Pedic mattresses tend to be more durable than most comparable all-foam models, the GrandBed's expected lifespan is at least seven years.

Motion Isolation
Very Good

The GrandBed absorbs and minimizes motion transfer to a significant extent, as is common with softer all-foam beds.

Conforming
Very Good

The GrandBed offers close conforming that makes it ideal for people who experience frequent aches and pains.

Sex
Fair

The GrandBed lacks responsivess and may not be adequate for some couples.

Temperature Neutrality
Good

A silk and cashmere cover helps cool down the GrandBed, allowing most sleepers to maintain a fairly comfortable temperature during the night.

Off-gassing
Good

The GrandBed may produce some off-gassing but odors are neither excessively strong nor persistent.

Edge Support
Fair

The GrandBed offers minimal edge support, leaving the perimeter of the mattress susceptible to sinkage.

Noise
Excellent

The GrandBed is virtually silent when bearing weight.

The Cloud mattresses and the GrandBed, which have softer sleep surfaces, are most suitable for side sleepers and lighter individuals. Mattresses in the Contour series are on the firmer side, making them a good option for heavier individuals and back/stomach sleepers. All three mattresses in the Adapt series have multiple firmness options, and the TEMPUR-ProAdapt and TEMPUR-Adapt models are also available as memory foam hybrids. These mattresses earned the strongest ratings across the board due to this broad selection.

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

  • You are planning to buy a mattress with a higher-than-average price-point
  • You frequently experience aches and pains in your shoulders, back, and other sensitive areas
  • You don’t mind sleeping on a mattress that is thicker than average
  • You and/or your sleep partner awaken easily due to movement or noise
