What we know today as memory foam was first invented by NASA in the late 1960s to absorb the shock in aircraft seats. In the 1980s, this foam became available for public use, so Tempur-Pedic took this shock-absorbing material one step further by perfecting it for sleeping.
After nearly 10 years of research and development, the Tempur-Pedic mattress was introduced in 1991.
TEMPUR foam is not the generic memory foam that you will find in many mattresses on the market but was designed as an exclusive material found only in Tempur-Pedic mattresses.
TEMPUR foam is activated by your body heat as it contours around the curves of your body and isolates motion. It is designed to distribute your body weight evenly across your mattress surface to provide pressure relief. Its open cell structure helps regulate your body temperature as you sleep.
Choosing a Tempur-Pedic Memory Foam Mattress
If you are thinking about a memory foam mattress, avoid the other brands and invest in a Tempur-Pedic. The exclusive benefits of your choice will be worth the cost.
Tempur-Pedic scientists continue to work daily to develop and discover new technology to provide the best contouring, motion-isolating, pressure-relieving, body temperature-regulating luxury mattress line in the industry.
Each Tempur-Pedic mattress collection features unique technology designed for all types of sleepers.
If you are a side sleeper, you will want to decide if you prefer a soft or medium feel. As a side sleeper, you will want a mattress that provides pressure relief by contouring to your hips and shoulders to avoid unnecessary pressure and pain.
If you are a back or stomach sleeper, a medium to firm is the best choice to not only support your hips but to keep your spine in its natural alignment. If your mattress allows your hips to sink too far in, your spine will be forced out of alignment causing unwanted discomfort.
How to Choose a Mattress Online
Researching your mattress choices online is a good start to finding the right mattress for you. The tips listed above will help but going into a mattress store like any of our Mattress Express locations is the best way to find out what model feels the best to your own body.
Narrow down your choices by your online research and then test your options in person. Remember that the right balance of support and comfort is ideal for your ultimate sleeping experience.
Tempur-Pedic Mattress Price
It is easy to be enticed by a low-cost mattress that makes promises of comfort and support, but sticking with a tried and true, time-tested company like Tempur-Pedic is the best choice to ensure you get the comfort, support and quality that you need without the possibility of (expensive) disappointment.
Tempur-Pedic mattresses are built with high-quality, long-lasting materials that perfectly conform to your body as you sleep and are priced accordingly. They are available in multiple thicknesses, firmnesses, and compositions to suit different body types.
All Tempur-Pedic mattresses come with a 10-year warranty, but the average mattress lifespan tends to be about 15 years. Investing your money in a high-quality mattress will help ensure that you will not need to purchase a new mattress every few years. A Tempur-Pedic is definitely worth a little higher cost.

Which Tempur-Pedic Mattress Is Best For Me?
There is no mattress that is perfect for everyone but TEMPUR-Pedic offers a mattress option for every type of sleeper. Your body shape, your sleep position, how long you spend in bed and your general comfort preference are all things to consider when choosing the right mattress for you.
Tempur-Pedic mattresses are designed with Tempur materials to evenly absorb the weight of your body, dramatically reduce motion transfer and regulate body temperature to give you the most comfortable sleep possible.
The TEMPUR-Adapt mattress line comes in two options: all-foam and foam hybrid. The line offers a comfort layer of foam to contour to your curves and alleviate pressure-point pain. It uses a support core of poly foam or pocketed coils to help maintain healthy alignment.
The TEMPUR-Adapt mattress is available in a medium all-foam or a medium hybrid version. Both versions are a great option for stomach sleepers, back sleepers and heavier-weight side sleepers.
The TEMPUR-ProAdapt mattress line combines layers of TEMPUR foam and TEMPUR-ES foam to create a sleep surface that gently cushions and conforms to your body for optimal comfort and support.
The TEMPUR-ProAdapt mattress comes in a soft, medium or firm mattress. The soft is only recommended for lightweight side sleepers, while the medium style can benefit all sleepers and the firm version is best for heavier-weight stomach sleepers or back sleepers who prefer a firm feel.
The TEMPUR-Luxe Adapt
The TEMPUR-Luxe Adapt mattress line includes layers of TEMPUR foam,TEMPUR-ES foam and TEMPUR-APR+ foam. It provides even more pressure-relieving power and unparalleled motion cancellation on top of optimal support.
The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt mattress is offered in a soft or firm version. The soft version is best for lightweight to average side sleepers while the firm is recommended for back sleepers. According to Tempur-Pedic mattress reviews the firm may still be too soft for stomach sleepers or heavier-weight sleepers because of its intense contouring feature.
The TEMPUR-ProBreeze mattress collection features TEMPUR-CM+ foam and PureCool layers to provide cooling comfort and unparalleled motion cancellation in the top layers. It also offers an original TEMPUR foam or pocketed coil core in the bottom layer for support. The TEMPUR-ProBreeze feels three degrees cooler throughout the night compared to the Adapt collection.
The TEMPUR-ProBreeze mattress is available in a medium or medium hybrid. Both versions will benefit you no matter what sleeping position you prefer.
The TEMPUR-LuxeBreeze mattress collection features comfort layers of TEMPUR-CM+ and TEMPUR-PureCool+ technology that helps keep you cool throughout the night. The ventilated TEMPUR-APR support layer relieves pressure and provides unparalleled motion cancellation.
The TEMPUR-LuxeBreeze feels up to 10 degrees cooler throughout the night compared to the Adapt collection and is available in a soft or firm comfort level. Similar to the feel of the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt mattress, the soft is favored by lightweight side sleepers or average-weight side sleepers that like a soft feel while the firm style works best for side sleepers that like a firmer feel, as well as lighter-weight back sleepers.
