How We Review

This comprehensive Tempur review looks at honest, unbiased reviews on – firmness, sleep quality, partner disturbance, and more. From websites like Canstar Blue, ProductReview.com.au, and our own opinion. Let's find out if this mattress is right for you.

What is Tempur-Pedic?

Tempur-Pedic is extremely popular. The Denmark company revolutionised the mattress industry by creating patented memory foam for NASA. Using memory foam as a comfort layer on a mattress allows for support and relieves pressure points. The brand tends to be on the higher end of the price range and is considered luxury mattresses.

Are Tempur mattresses worth it?

Tempur mattresses are difficult to purchase online. You generally have to go to the store, and you won't get the sleep trails or other benefits of mattress in a box brands. You can find them at Harvey Norman, Forty Winks, Snooze, Bedshed, and Domayne.

The Tempur range features CoolTouch Technology and has a zip-off washable cover, making it easy to clean. However, we don't think they are worth it. The mattresses are great but too expensive.

You can get a top of the range mattress from a DTC company for half the price... quarter the price in most cases, and you get a sleep trial so that you can return it within 3 months (depending on the brand).

Sleeping style and body weight

It is vital to compare mattresses and weigh several factors when choosing a good mattress. Weight is one of the most important factors to consider. 

Side sleepers: Typically, hip muscles are found in the shoulder area since it is the widest area on the body. A rigid mattress can cause these joints to hurt, while a very soft mattress could cause the spinal cord to collapse. The average side sleeper's mattress is usually oversized and has moderate firmness and softness.

Back sleepers: Back sleeping can benefit anyone, but it can be especially beneficial for people with obstructive sleep apnea and other breathing problems. People with lower back pain or neck pain may find that sleeping on their back worsens their pain. For others, sleeping on their back provides relief.

Front sleepers: Sleeping on your stomach may have some benefits, but it also puts a lot of strain on your neck and lower back, particularly if you sleep on a softer bed. This is a major cause of back and neck pain. You may also notice that pressing your face into the pillow results in more breakouts, irritation, or even facial creases when you wake up if you have sensitive skin.

Warranty, trial, shipping

When purchasing a Tempur in Australia, you have to visit a store mentioned in this article. No store mentions a trial period on the range; however, you get a 10-year warranty. 

Motion isolation

The Tempur mattresses' ability to control movements because of the memory foam even rivals the Koala range. However, you save over half the money for the same benefit; check out our Koala mattress review.

Firmness

You'll find that there are a few different models, so you get a range of firmness options to pick one that suits you. Most people prefer a medium-firm mattress. However, if you are on the heavier side, you'll prefer a firm mattress with support

Price

Unfortunately, this is the biggest drawback of the mattress range. With the industry disruption of the mattress in a box industry, there has been massive development in the quality of mattresses you can now get for the money. 

This makes the traditional model of stores and not selling direct to customers outdated and expensive. 

Tempur mattress alternatives

Memory foam mattresses tend to be the closest alternatives to tempur foam and offer similar pressure point relief, and heat retention, for a good nights sleep.

  • Delta Sleep: Excellent pressure relief, 100% sag-free, and with a 120-night trial. 
  • Emma Diamond Hybrid: Diamond graphite for temperature regulation and deep sleep, luxury mattress with affordable pricing.
  • Koala Soul Mate: Bamboo charcoal memory foam, 5 zoned foam springs, and excellent pressure relief. 

Conclusion

With the different Tempur models, you can get a tailored mattress, offering exceptional pressure relief, making it great for most sleepers. However, they aren't affordable because they employ the traditional method of mattress selling.

Even, though they are excellent for the best bang for your buck, we suggest checking out the alternatives mentioned.
