Manufacturer: Tempur-Pedic
Retail Price: $2,399 for Full Mattress & $1,700 for Adjustable Base

April was Tempur-Pedic month in my year in bed, a 12-month deep dive into mattress testing. If you're going to try a memory foam bed, you've got to try Tempur-Pedic, and so we did. What did we think? While it confirmed our personal antipathy for memory foam in general, it was certainly more comfortable than the other pure foam beds that we've tried to date and much more exciting for Ursula, who loved the adjustable bed feature with the remote control wand. Bottom line, if the memory foam experience is your thing, this is a good choice.

Sleep Experience

• Good

The memory foam experience is a very personal thing, and both of us - having tested a lot of beds now - would not choose it. While the super squishy feeling can be extremely alluring as you first lie down, to us it comes to seem "muddy" and very much in need of more air circulation as it sleeps warm. To solve that problem, we'd recommend a natural topper of some kind to provide a really breathable layer.

→ Do you sleep on a Tempurpedic bed? If yes, please let me know in the comments how it's going for you.

The Tempur-Cloud Supreme is a very soft offering with an 11" deep sandwich of various foam layers - with memory foam on the very top. It does "lightly conform to your body", which reduces the amount of pressure you feel in any one place as well as stopping "motion transfer between sleep partners." It was the squishiest of the all-foam beds that we have tried, and for those who prefer this feeling, they should be quite happy. It's the thing memory foam does really well.
