Overview

Tempur-Pedic is one of the most well-known names in the mattress industry and sells their products directly through their website as well as through many large mattress chains and other retail stores.

All of their models include their Tempur foam, but they divide their offerings into several different product lines. You can often find these product lines listed as the TEMPUR-Cloud, TEMPUR-Contour, and TEMPUR-Flex. Within these categories, though, the company has a series of products that are focused on sleeping cool, and this is known as the Tempur-Pedic Breeze line of mattresses.

Some of the key strengths of the Tempur-Pedic Breeze mattresses include:

  • Design meant to enhance cooling: the focus of the Tempur-Pedic Breeze mattresses is to keep you sleeping cool. While they don’t divulge a lot of details about how this is achieved, customers generally report high levels of satisfaction with Tempur-Pedic products.
  • Track record: Tempur-Pedic has a history of innovation in the industry and has been producing large volumes of well-reviewed mattresses for many years. In an industry with many new players, Tempur-Pedic’s track record may hold a lot of weight for many shoppers, even if they do not provide detailed information about the density and composition of their foams.
  • Quality materials: Tempur-Pedic was a pioneer in using viscoelastic foam, also known as memory foam, as a mattress comfort layer. The company continues to refine and develop their materials and have a reputation for not cutting corners on foam quality.

Potential drawbacks for the Tempur-Pedic Breeze mattresses include:

  • Premium price: the Tempur-Pedic mattresses, including the Tempur-Breeze models, are among the most expensive in the industry for this type of composition and design. These are well outside the price range for many shoppers.
  • Undisclosed mattress specifications: while these mattresses are generally considered to be well-constructed, the specifics of the mattress design are not disclosed by Tempur-Pedic. The company cites this as proprietary information, and as a result, we don’t know the density or thickness of different foam layers.

About the Tempur-Pedic Breeze Mattresses

Tempur-Pedic Breeze Mattress Specifications

There are four mattresses in the Tempur-Pedic Breeze product line.

Tempur-Pedic Breeze does not publish the thickness of each foam layer, the density of the foams, or other specifications for these layers. The company lists this as proprietary information, and as such, we are unable to state definitively design of these mattresses. The information below gives an overview of how the Tempur-Pedic Breeze mattresses are constructed.

Tempur-Cloud Supreme Breeze
Cover: fabric
Top: SmartClimate layer
Second: soft memory foam
Third: transition foam
Bottom: support foam

Tempur-Cloud Luxe Breeze
Cover: fabric
Top: soft memory foam
Second: transition foam
Bottom: support foam

Tempur-Flex Supreme Breeze
Cover: fabric
Top: SmartClimate layer
Second: soft memory foam
Third: bounce/transition layer
Fourth: innerspring coils
Bottom: support foam

Tempur-Contour Elite Breeze
Cover: fabric
Top: Tempur comfort foam
Second: transition foam
Bottom: Support foam

All of these mattresses include Tempur foam. Tempur material is a type of memory foam. Tempur-Pedic was one of the first companies to market this material for bedding, and they have since designed slightly modified versions with different properties.

The Breeze mattress line includes three different additional features designed to prevent sleeping hot.

  • The first of these is the mattress cover. The cover is made with a performance material that is designed to prevent heat buildup.
  • The second design element is the PureCool material in the topmost comfort layer. The Tempur material has a modified design that works to limit heat retention.
  • The third piece of the cooling system is that the supporting foams in the mattresses are more breathable types of polyfoam, which also helps to prevent the top layer from gaining temperature through the night.

While Tempur-Pedic describes these parts of its mattress design in general terms, they do not provide specifics about how these materials are actually built or composed. Information about the PureCool material or about the breathable polyfoams are all considered proprietary.

 

Where It’s Made

The Tempur-Pedic Breeze mattresses are manufactured in the USA.

 

Buying Logistics

 

Where to Buy

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are sold through several outlets including their website, a few Tempur-Pedic branded stores, some major mattress stores, and through large retailers like Macy’s.

Sleep Trial / Refunds

Tempur-Pedic offers a 90 day sleep trial for their mattresses. The company asks that you first try the mattress for 30 nights and then contact them if you are not satisfied. If they cannot make an adjustment to improve your comfort, you can return the mattress for a refund of the purchase price minus shipping charges.

It is important to be aware that this 90 night sleep trial does not apply to mattresses purchased from third party retailers. This could equate to much shorter trial periods depending on the retailer’s return policy.

Delivery

For mattresses purchased directly from Tempur-Pedic, free shipping with white glove delivery is included for customers in the continental U.S. Delivery typically occurs within 1 to 3 weeks after an order is placed. This delivery includes setup and haul-away of your old mattress and box spring (if requested).

People purchasing from third party retailers will want to confirm the shipping details before placing an order as shipping costs or policies may vary depending on the retailer.

Warranty

Tempur-Pedic offers a 10-year limited warranty on mattress purchases. This warranty covers any defects in materials or workmanship, and during this time, the company will repair or replace a defective mattress. Transportation or shipping costs associated with a warranty return are the responsibility of the customer. Full warranty details are available at https://www.tempurpedic.com/mattresses-and-flat-foundations-10-year-warranty/.

Customer Service

Tempur-Pedic is part of the Tempur Sealy mattress company. As an extremely large mattress retailer, this company has a mixed record for customer service. Given the volume of mattresses sold, it should come as no surprise that a number of customers report negative experiences from post-sales service. The Tempur Sealy company does have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.

Also keep in mind that depending on where the mattress is purchased, Tempur-Pedic may not provide direct customer service. Instead, service needs may be handled through the retailer who sells the mattress. Because of this, customers should purchase this mattress from a retailer that they are familiar with and that has a good reputation for customer service.

 

Mattress Performance

The key driver of the performance of the Tempur-Pedic mattresses is the Tempur memory foam. This material is regarded as among the highest-quality memory foam in the industry and reflects all of the most well-known properties of this material.

Support

In general, memory foam does an excellent job of providing support through its responsiveness and ability to proportionally respond to pressure and weight applied by the body. As a result, the body and spine can receive the necessary support needed to maintain a proper alignment.

Every sleeper’s needs are different, but in some cases, an extremely plush mattress — including plush memory foam — can have too much of a sinking effect, which can throw off the body’s alignment and can reduce the quality of support offered by the mattress.

Durability

The Tempur-Pedic mattresses receive high marks for their long-term durability. Even over many years of regular use, the memory foam typically maintains its ability to respond to pressure and then resume its full shape when the pressure is removed. While we do not know the density of these foams, which is cause for concern, the track record of Tempur-Pedic may be sufficient for most shoppers.

Firmness

Each of the four Tempur-Pedic Breeze mattresses has a different firmness rating based on the typical firmness scale.

The TEMPUR-Cloud Luxe Breeze is a 2-3 on the firmness scale.

The TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze is a 4-5 on the firmness scale.

The TEMPUR-Flex Supreme Breeze is a 5-6 on the firmness scale.

The TEMPUR-Contour Elite Breeze is a 6-8 on the firmness scale.

Motion Transfer

Memory foam is the most effective material for preventing motion transfer. This is because of how the foam only moves or responds to the areas in which pressure is directly applied. This can be even more true with very plush foams as they go even further in hugging the body. Shoppers for whom motion isolation is a key priority are likely to be best served by memory foam mattresses such as these.

Offgassing

The Tempur-Pedic mattresses are not delivered compressed, and this can help to reduce the amount of odor from the mattress. However, in some cases, the mattress may still have a smell, which comes from the memory foam itself. Most people find this is only a minor annoyance and one that goes away within a week or two. But for people who are very smell-sensitive, a mattress made of material other than memory foam may be a better option.

Sleeping Hot

The Tempur-Pedic Breeze mattresses are designed to try to improve airflow and prevent heat retention in the mattress. The goal of this design is to try to prevent sleeping hot.

Memory foam like the Tempur material has historically been known for sleeping hot. This is because the deep hug or contour from the foam prevents airflow around the body. In addition, memory foam becomes more elastic as it heats up, which means that sleepers often sink more deeply into the mattress through the course of the night.

Unfortunately, Tempur-Pedic provides very little detail about the nature of the mattress composition that is intended to prevent sleeping hot. This is described as proprietary information, which means that it is mostly up to the customer’s assessment of the Tempur-Pedic brand and its reputation in deciding whether or not to put much faith in the Breeze models. As we have stated, Tempur-Pedic generally earns strong marks, and innovations over the years have helped reduce the heat retention of their memory foams. Given that, many shoppers may choose to trust that the Tempur-Breeze can offer support and comfort without excess heat retention.

Ultimately, most sleepers are unlikely to experience any significant problems when it comes to sleeping hot, but people who know that they are susceptible to this problem likely want to explore mattress options that are not composed primarily of memory foam.

Intimacy

The responsiveness of memory foam that causes people to sink into the mattress can also cause some people to feel as though they are stuck in the mattress. This is particularly the case with the more plush Tempur-Pedic models. This feeling of inhibited motion on the mattress can be an impediment to sex for some couples. While it isn’t a disruption for everyone, other mattress materials, such as latex, are usually considered to be the optimal materials for facilitating sexual activity.
