Quick Overview

Tempur-Pedic offers memory foam mattress options as part of two collections as well as two stand alone models.

With our review, we looked at the entire collection, made up of the following.  The Cloud collection features six different models:  Cloud Prima, Cloud Supreme, Cloud Elite, Cloud Luxe, Cloud Supreme Breeze, and Cloud Luxe Breeze.

The Contour collection contains four individual mattresses:  Contour Supreme, Contour Elite, Contour Rhapsody Luxe, and Contour Elite Breeze.

Within the memory foam line, Tempur-Pedic also offers the TEMPUR-Legacy as well as the GrandBed

Our review of these mattresses found that many of the mattresses give you the hugging/conforming feeling made famous when Tempur-Pedic shook up the mattress space in the 1990s offering an alternative to the standard inner-spring mattresses used for over 100 years.  Over time Tempur-Pedic has done an outstanding job of continuing to not only improve the components utilized in their mattresses, but also have a wider range of offerings to meet the needs of unique sleepers.

Read on for our full review of lines of the Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses, including sleeper and performance ratings, who we recommend this bed to, and everything else you need to know about the mattress.

As you can see, the Tempur-Pedic memory foam line of mattresses are  a great choice for side sleepers of all weight categories, and performs quite well for lighter sleepers who sleep on their stomach or back. We are leery of recommending some of the Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses to larger sleepers, since the may lack the necessary support, but GrandBed should be great.

Our testing process found the Tempur-Pedic memory foam line of mattresses should also be great for you if…

  • You’re looking a memory foam mattress constructed with high quality components
  • You love the feel of memory foam – sleeping more “in” than “on” a bed
  • You have sensitive pressure points that need to be lightly cushioned against. Especially, in your shoulders, hips, and lower back
  • You sleep with a partner and want to limit the movement you feel on the bed
  • You are looking to purchase from a well established brand
