Company’s Promise

No matter what kind of sleeper you are, there’s a Tempur-Pedic mattress that’s right for you.

Foam Layers

tempur-pedic-LayersThe Tempur-pedic mattress is built from both foam and coils. Its structure consists of four separate foam layers:

  • Top layer or comfort layer: This layer is made from Tempurpedic’s TEMPUR-ES material. It provides the comfort and texture of the mattress.
  • Second layer or response layer: This layer is constructed from Tempur-pedic’s TEMPUR-Response material. This layer is formulated to help distribute your body weight evenly across the sleeping surface and provide consistent support throughout.
  • Third layer or dynamic support layer: This layer consists of tightly packed coils. These coils easily and quickly adjust and provide support and comfort according to your movements at night or during sleeping hours.
  • Bottom layer or foundation: It is a breathable layer that acts as the foundation and support of top layers.

Cover

The Tempurpedic has a really sharply designed cover. It has angular edging and green trim.

The cover has great stretchiness and a great classical texture. The upper part of the cover is a moisture-wicking fabric. It helps to wick any moisture during the night, minimizing any heat retention and sweating issues. Additionally, the cover is easy to remove.

The green trim finely hides a zipper that runs along the entire edge of the mattress. This allows the user to unzip the mattress completely and take off the top piece of the cover for easy washing or cleaning.

Firmness, Feel, & Support

The Tempur-pedic mattress rates at 5 out of 10 on the firmness scale (where 10 is the firmest).

The Flex Supreme Tempur-pedic Mattress has exceptional bounce, great responsiveness and a comfortable feel. There is a light sinkage of 2 inches (5 cm) in a normal lying position. This provides a balanced hug but still gives great body contouring. The union of foam layers with smaller coils creates, in its turn, an utterly unique feeling.

Support is consistent and impressive throughout the mattress surface.

Pros

  • Firm Foam: The mattress will conform to the natural contours of your body, providing optimal support at all points, and you do not have to worry about sagging.
  • No Pressure on Joints: Say goodbye to bed sores, caused by uneven pressure on joints. Customarily, mattresses don’t curve according to our bodies, it is rather our bodies that modify position to meet the mattress. The Tempurpedic mattress relieves the pressure on the joints and sore spots, allowing for a peaceful, painless night’s sleep.
  • There Is No Cavity to Fall Into: With traditional mattresses, a cavity forms after a short time, especially where the heavier person usually sleeps. During the night both move towards the middle of the bed and end up sleeping on top of one another. This will not happen with a Tempur-pedic mattress. You will each have your own space to sleep peacefully.

Cons

  • The downside to this brand is the fact that the Tempur-pedic mattress foam may retain body heat. Therefore, for some users it may be too hot to sleep on in summers and warm weather.
  • The mattress is thick, dense and designed to mold to the contours of the body, so it might seem hard for some sleepers to move around.
  • Another common complaint is that the foam of this mattress gives off a chemical odor; due to a process, known as off-gassing, that acts as a flame retardant.
