Tempur-Cloud Mattress Review

First off, we are so delighted you’re reading our review. Pretty much all of the top-ranked reviews for the Tempur Pedic Cloud mattress were ghostwritten by websites that are ad machines for mattress manufacturers. Unlike these paid-for websites, Kaye and I have ACTUALLY SLEPT on every mattress we have reviewed since 2015.

Tempur Pedic mattresses have historically been VERY expensive and shipped full size instead of a “bed in a box” – some of their top-end mattresses cost over $4,000 – woah.

The Tempur-Cloud mattress is a departure from their traditional model. It’s shipped directly to you in a box and it’s more affordable. The first manufacturer to popularize the use of NASA’s memory foam (then known as ‘temper foam’) has finally caught up with the hot competition in this space.

We will run who should and should not buy it, and then dive deeper into its construction and performance. Review updated Sep 21, 2021 @ 8:25 pm

 

Is the Tempur-Cloud Mattress Right for You?

Buy the Tempur-Cloud Mattress if:

  • You want a medium-firm mattress that balances the soft ‘hugging’ feeling of memory foam with adequate spinal support. You will feel the memory foam mould around your body but you will still feel supported, rather than feeling like you’re sinking too deeply in the mattress.
  • You predominantly sleep on your side or back.
  • You want a mattress that has cooling technology to ensure you do not overheat. You may have tried and liked memory foam mattresses in the past but found them too hot – Tempur Pedic has addressed this.
  • You share your bed with a partner and want a mattress that absorbs the movement of you and your partner so you (or they) are not disturbed in their sleep. This is excellent if you have different sleeping schedules or one of you moves about during their sleep.
  • You want a therapeutic mattress that can be placed on an adjustable mattress base
  • Finally, you want to buy from a reputable company that has decades of research behind their products. This is a high-end mattress and Tempur Pedic has been in the game far longer than its numerous cash-burning competitors. 
  • You are not sure and want to take advantage of a free sleep trial – you can try the mattress for 90 days and return it should you find it dissatisfactory with no problems.

You might not like the Tempur-Cloud Mattress if:

  • You don’t like the feeling of memory foam then this mattress is not for you. It’s an all-foam mattress and lacks the ‘bounce’ of traditional hybrid and innerspring mattresses. 
  • You like the feeling of sleeping ‘on top’ of the mattress then you should consider a firm mattress or a more traditional hybrid or innerspring product.
  • You predominantly sleep on your stomach and weigh more than 130 pounds then you may like this mattress but typically you will want to look at firmer options. This is because you need to have more support so your shoulders and neck do not sink too deeply into the mattress and misalign your spine.

 

Sleep Profiles (Deep Dive)

Side Sleepers

The majority of us sleep on our side, which means we need a softer mattress that cradles the hips and shoulders. This is to ensure that your spine is correctly aligned throughout your sleep. The medium-firm Tempur-Cloud mattress is excellent for average and plus-size sleepers but if you’re lightweight (less than 130 pounds) you may want to check out a memory foam mattress that is softer. If this sounds like you, we recommend you check out our recommended memory foam mattresses for lightweight side sleepers. 

Back Sleepers

Back sleepers need evenly distributed support across their body to ensure healthy spinal support. The Tempur-Cloud performs extremely well across all body types for back sleepers. Even though typically we direct back-sleepers towards hybrid (memory foam and coil) models, the Tempur-Cloud is a rare all-foam mattress that performs for back sleepers.

Stomach Sleepers

If you sleep on your stomach you need to consider how a mattress supports your hips and knees. A too soft mattress and your hips and knees will sink unevenly into the mattress which can, in the long run, lead to chronic back pain. Therefore, you need a firmer mattress that will provide support and pressure relief to this part of your body to maintain healthy spinal alignment. If you are a plus-size stomach sleeper, we recommend you opt for a more supportive hybrid mattress. If you are lightweight or an average-weight stomach sleeper, then the Tempur-Cloud will be adequately supportive. 

Combination Sleepers

Combination sleepers move around in the night, often from their back to their stomach. Therefore, you do not want a too soft mattress where you sink deeply, reducing your ability to move around. Typically, you will want a mattress that balances bounce with the memory foam sensation, which is a hybrid mattress. However, the Tempur-Cloud is supportive for an all-foam mattress and this won’t be a problem for lightweight and average sleepers – it is extremely comfortable. Plus size sleepers may want to check out a firmer hybrid mattress or the firm Tempur Pedic LuxBreeze. 

 

Construction and Materials

So this is the problem we found with Tempur Pedic. They don’t share a lot of information about their technology with anyone, as they consider it proprietary information, so it is hard to find out exactly what their materials are made of or the densities of the layers, etc..

Tempur-Cloud is an all-foam mattress by design, as they eschew different or innovative mattress layers and tend to stick with their proven designs. They have come out with some new hybrid mattresses lately, but for the most part their memory foam mattresses stick to all-foam construction.

The Tempur-Cloud is a 10″ all foam mattress and it consists of the following layers:

  • 2.5″ Top Comfort Layer – This layer is 2.5″ of the special Tempur Comfort Foam designed to be soft enough to cushion every point of your body while also being responsive enough to facilitate moving around in bed during the night and prevent you from feeling stuck in foam.
  • 2.5″ Support Layer – This layer is 2.5″ of the Tempur Support Foam designed to slowly adapt and conform to your body curves and provide amazing pressure relief throughout the whole night.
  • 5″ Base Layer – This layer is 5″ of a dense foam that provides a long lasting support and serves as a foundation for the layers above. It also provides greater stability and durability to the mattress.

The cover of the Tempur-Cloud mattress is a premium 360° stretch cover that us extremely soft and pleasant to the touch.

It is highly breathable and will allow greater airflow through the mattress to keep you cool while it will also wick away excessive moisture and keep you dry and comfortable all night long.

Firmness & Support

The Tempur-Cloud mattress is a universal comfort model, which means that comes in only one firmness option designed to appeal to a wide range of sleepers with different needs and sleep preferences.

We felt this mattress to be a nice medium-firm mattress and would rate it at a 6.5 out of 10 (10 being the firmest). The company has their own firmness scale where they rate the Tempur-Cloud mattress in a range you can see below.

The Tempur-Cloud mattress may initially feel a bit firm when you lay down on it, but as the time passes your body will adapt to it and it will become much more comfortable.

Tempur Pedic does recommend a 2-3 week “break-in” period for your body to acclimate to the mattress, which is quite different than many other memory foam top quality mattress which pretty much are how they will be once you lay on them.

So as the time passes this mattress will totally adapt to your weight, shape and temperature and provide you with a personalized comfort and support.

It will be soft where you want it and firm where you need it and provide you with a perfect balance of comfort and support. It has enough give in the top comfort layer to cradle your hips and shoulders and eliminate any possibility of the appearance of pressure points, while it also has enough firmness necessary to keep your spine properly aligned if you switch to your stomach or back.

So, the Tempur-Cloud works for all sleeping styles and all types of sleepers, including heavier sleepers such as myself (130 lbs). We are primarily side sleepers and we felt this mattress to have everything that is necessary for a comfortable and pain-free nights sleep.

Comfort

The Tempur-Cloud mattress is incredibly comfortable with its combination of special proprietary foams that will provide a perfect pressure relief and restore your body while you sleep, while they also have enough firmness to keep your spine properly aligned and provide you with a comfortable, pain-free night’s sleep.

The soft top comfort layer will hug and mold to your body and provide you with that classic memory foam feel, but it won’t make you feel stuck in foam. It also offers a nice degree of responsiveness which will allow you to easily move around and get in and out of bed during the night and eliminate the feeling of being stuck in foam.

The mattress offers an ideal balance of comfort and support in that it is soft enough to provide enough pressure reliving comfort where it is needed while it also offers excellent support needed to keep your spine properly aligned regardless of which position you choose to sleep in.

Therefore, the Tempur-Cloud is firm enough to be supportive, and yet has the softness necessary for a comfortable sleep. It will make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud, but it will prevent you from sinking too much in the foam and feel trapped, which some memory foam mattresses are known to do.

Sleeping Hot

Tempur Pedics used to be known for sleeping hot. The early models would be hot in the summer, and hard and cold in the winter. The ones we have used and slept on were no different.

The company has introduced some special cooling technologies to address this and this new Bed-In-A-Box mattress uses high grade memory foam that will totally adjust to your body temperature to prevent the build-up of excessive heat and help you stay cool throughout the night.

The new generation foams used in the construction of this mattress combine with an extremely soft and breathable cover to create better breathability and help regulate body temperature to ensure you stay cool and comfortable all night long.

Sinkage and Motion Transfer

Tempur Pedics are known for having very minimal motion transfer, due to the high quality dense foam used and the newest Tempur-Cloud is no exception either.

Like we often tend to mention, sinkage and motion transfer are highly dependent on sleeper’s weight. As I weigh more than Kaye, I usually tend to sink down a lot more into mattresses when sitting up on them or on the edge, but this was not the case with the new Tempur-Cloud.

It is true that I compressed its top comfort layer quite a bit, but it didn’t make me sink too much and feel trapped in foam or bottom out and come to rest on the foundation of our bed as it is the cause with some thinner, lower quality all foam mattresses.

A perfect combination of the highest-quality layers made of the special proprietary foams lifted my heavy body weight and our combined weights as a couple with ease and distributed them evenly across the bed.

It also didn’t cause Kaye to roll into me due to our weight disparity and feel as if she was going to sink into a hole.

Edge support is also great with this mattress and better than in most other all foam mattresses that we have reviewed. I didn’t press all the way down through the mattress when sitting on or near its edge and we didn’t feel any of the “rolling off the edges” sensation.

Motion transfer was minimal with this mattress when we both laid on the bed, which Tempur Pedic mattresses are known for. We could not feel each other when turning over side to side, which is a side effect of their dense foam and multiple layers.

Smell / Off-Gassing

Off-gassing to our knowledge was minimal with the current models, but in the past, when we purchased Tempur Pedics, there was a significant chemical smell.

They seemed to have addressed this with the current models and solved this issue. So, compared to many other the Bed-In-A-Box online mattresses that ship compressed and have an odor upon opening, the Tempur-Cloud didn’t have tom much of a noticeable smell.

Customer Service

Tempur Pedic historically has sold through major mattress retailers exclusively, so you were at the mercy of the mattress retailer’s customer service. This helped them not have to deal directly with the customer, as you had to deal with the mattress retailer themselves.

Lately, however, they have moved to online models to compete with the many online mattress retailers.

Recently they have come up with this amazing Bed-In-A-Box mattress that comes in at more than a reasonable price (they are often doing significant promotions of mattresses sold online to compete with other online companies – and you can save on Tempur-Cloud by clicking here and ordering online which is a big difference for the company.

You also get a 90 day tryout, 10 year warranty, and free shipping directly to your door.

Price

Unlike the previous Tempur Pedic mattress that we have reviewed and that is way too expensive, this new Bed-In-A-Box mattress comes in at only $1399.30, which is more than a reasonable price for a mattress of such a high quality and construction.
