Tempur-Pedic has been a pillar of the mattress industry for over 25 years. The Swedish company helped popularize memory foam mattresses and remains a well-known brand for customers who purchase memory layered mattresses. Tempur-Pedic has more than 10 models, and there is no one-size-fits-all. Whether you’re in the market for a soft, plush mattress or prefer a firm and structured type, Tempur-Pedic is for you.
Sure, you may find Tempur-Pedic to be a little more expensive than some of its competitors, but this high-end mattress is worth every penny. Plus, the company offers a 10-year warranty on all of its mattresses, ensuring that you sleep well knowing that your investment is protected.
Here, we’ve broken down the best models for every sleeper – so you can sleep in the clouds every night.
Best Budget: Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Adapt
TEMPUR-Adapt owners say the mattress provides a comfortable, cool sleeping surface. Although the mattress is one-sided (so you can’t flip it over to extend its life), TEMPUR-Adapt conforms to your body to relieve pressure and soreness.
Best for Back Pain: Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-ProAdapt
Buyers say the TEMPUR-ProAdapt is ideal for anyone who likes a fairly firm (but incredibly supportive) bed. Many customers say this mattress is great for post-injury and post-surgery sleep and provides enough support to protect against aging or joint pain.
Best Mattress Pad: Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR Supreme 3-Inch Premium Foam Mattress Topper
Owners say the TEMPUR Supreme foam mattress cover provides a cloud-like sleep experience with added support for pressure points. Available as a double XL through California King, this cover will extend the life of your mattress and enhance the quality of your sleep.
Best Mattress Cover: Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Protect Waterproof Mattress Protector
Owners love the TEMPUR-Protect cover, which feels like a sheet (unlike plastic covers) and fits snugly on most mattresses. It’s made with elastic (not zippers), so it doesn’t provide complete top-to-bottom coverage, but it protects almost all important surface areas. Splurging on your mattress may end up being a great option for your health, but protecting it may be a better option for your wallet.
What to look for when buying a Tempur-Pedic mattress
This may go without saying when buying a mattress, but the first step in choosing the right mattress is to determine the firmness or softness you need. Softer mattresses are ideal for side sleepers, allowing you to “sink” into the mattress, while firmer mattresses are better for those who sleep on their backs or stomachs. If you and your partner have opposite preferences, consider using a split king size bed or two twin mattresses to find the best fit.
Although it may seem self-explanatory, mattresses can range widely in price. While more expensive doesn’t always mean better, consider a mattress as an investment in your health. A mattress should last about ten years, so it can be easier to consider your investment rather than a one-time payment.
Tempur-Pedic mattresses start at around $1,500 and go up to $3,000 depending on your needs and the size of the mattress.
Another key part of choosing the right mattress is finding the right size. In terms of size, the standard mattress sizes are twin, full, queen, king and California king. A twin mattress is 38 inches x 75 inches, a full mattress is 54 inches x 75 inches, a queen mattress is 60 inches x 80 inches, a king mattress is 76 inches x 80 inches, and a California king is 72 inches x 84 inches. An adult sleeping alone should not be smaller than a full, but most experts recommend a queen bed. A couple can be comfortable in either a queen or king bed, and your choice will depend on how much you can fit.
Whether you buy a mattress online or check it out in-store, you may need to sleep on it for a few nights to really determine if it’s right for you. When purchasing a mattress, especially online, please consider the company’s return policy and whether you can try the mattress before you buy. Tempur-Pedic offers a 90-day trial period, after which you can return the mattress for a full refund (minus shipping). This is a great way to make sure your mattress is perfect for your needs.
How long will a Tempur-Pedic mattress last?
Most high-end mattresses will last 8-10 years, and Tempur-Pedic is no exception. Your results will depend on how often you use your mattress (guest room mattresses last longer than master bedrooms). You can also extend the life of your mattress by keeping it clean and placing a protector on it. If your mattress fits it, flipping it can also extend your warranty and help extend its life.
How do I clean my Tempur-Pedic mattress?
Like most mattresses, keeping your Tempur-Pedic mattress clean will prolong its life and help you get the most out of it. To clean your Tempur-Pedic mattress, sprinkle baking powder on the mattress and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. After allowing the product to soak into the mattress, use a vacuum cleaner with an attachment to remove the baking soda. You can use a damp rag to find clean stains, but make sure not to soak through your mattress.
Who makes Tempur-Pedic mattresses?
Tempur-Pedic (now part of Tempur Sealy International) mattresses are made in the U.S. in factories across the country, with headquarters in Lexington, Kentucky.
