The TEMPUR-Adapt mattress appeals to both loyal customers of Tempur-Pedic as well as newcomers.

  • People who prefer traditional pillow tops or latex foam

A Closer Look at The TEMPUR-Adapt’s Materials

The history of Tempur-Pedic’s material started with NASA designing a material that would absorb the G-Force of astronauts traveling into space. This material was innovated by scientists for their company, making it their proprietary one-of-a-kind technology they’ve been evolving for decades. This technology has been updated in their Adapt Collection, sleeping cooler and providing more personalized comfort than ever.

The off-gassing odor of most Tempur-Pedic models is said to be relatively strong, so be sure and let your mattress breathe a day or two in a well ventilated area before use. According to their website, Tempur-Pedic certifies that all products are subject to the Federal Flammability Standard. In addition, Tempur-Pedic mattresses are CertiPUR-US certified, meaning they’re environmentally safe to their standards. Tempur-Pedic models are a durable investment meant to last a decade or more.

The original TEMPUR-Adapt offers both a medium and medium hybrid comfort levels with simple but effective construction. Let’s take a closer look at the layers:


  1. Cover Layer: A cool to the touch tightly knit cover, promotes airflow and breathability.
  2. Comfort Layer: Tempur-ES material with a softer feel designed to cradle and relax in tandem with the other layer.
  3. Support Layer: Tempur-Pedic’s original material for durability, support and advanced pressure relief.
  4. (Hybrid Only) Coil Layer: 1,000+ premium wrapped spring coils for a bouncier more traditional mattress feel that adds support and durability to the medium design.


The TEMPUR-Adapt is considered a medium firmness, though this may be experienced differently depending on weight and body type. Overall, it lands at about a 6.5 on the firmness scale of 10, 1 being the softest. Tempur-Pedic mattresses are known to soften up over time, so it could fall closer to a 5 after the break in period. The hybrid version is recommended for heavier sleepers who need more support, as the solo memory foam may not be supportive enough.

Pros and Cons

Who Is The TEMPUR-Adapt Best For?

The TEMPUR-Adapt models are great for fans of the original slow moving memory foam that hugs and conforms to contours, isolating movement and allowing a deeper sleep with less interruptions. It’s great for all sleep types, though stomach sleepers may have a harder time experiencing proper alignment. The updated technology of TEMPUR-Adapt’s materials are built to relieve pain and pressure so you sleep deeper and rise refreshed.

Couples looking for less disturbances in the night benefit from the motion isolation of Tempur-Pedic’s mattresses, but the foam can be limiting as far as easy motion goes, meaning it may be difficult to change positions. The TEMPUR-Adapt hybrid option offers extra edge support and bounce for couples looking for a more responsive mattress.

Which Adapt Model Should I Get?

The TEMPUR-Adapt Collection includes 3 options with sub model selections for your consideration:

  1. Adapt is made with the original memory foam, and is very straightforward with a hybrid option. It stands at 11” tall with basic features, and is the most affordable of the collection.
  2. ProAdapt stands at 12” tall and has 4 different layer combinations and firmness options to choose from. It has 20% more of Tempur material and a washable cover. This has been mentioned as the closest to the original Tempur-Pedic models by reviewers.
  3. LuxeAdapt is the most premium (also known as most expensive) of the Adapt Collection. At 13” tall, it has 40% more Tempur material, a washable cover, and is their most conforming model. Tempur-Pedic calls the LuxeAdapt the most pressure relieving of the three models, and comes in soft or firm comfort levels.

How is the Cooling?

While memory foam models aren’t known to be the coolest mattresses ever, Tempur-Pedic has updated their technology to offer a cooler line in the Adapt Collection. The breathable cover and firmness should provide some temperature control. For some, it might be just right, but for anyone who sleeps too hot it might not be enough.

How Is The Edge Support?

The average foam mattress doesn’t have perfect edge support, but the TEMPUR-Adapt has a dense foam border that provides relatively good stability. You should be able to spread out freely without feeling like you’ll slip off the side. If you’re a heavier weight sleeper needing more support, the hybrid option should be just the thing.

What’s The Catch?

The main complaints about the TEMPUR-Adapt usually have to do with the firmness. People either find it too soft or far too firm, which can lead to serious body misalignment and pain. For some, it simply doesn’t live up to the hype. Many Tempur-Pedic models have an initial smell some say doesn’t go away quick enough.

The TEMPUR-Adapt can sleep hot and soften up too much for some over time, creating a stove-like crater that is difficult to escape. Lastly, if you aren’t educated on your trial and warranty period you could run into trouble with customer support or a costly return.

The Best TEMPUR-Adapt Reviews

Satisfied customers report the TEMPUR-Adapt mattress working exactly as it should, relieving pain and providing a deeper, more restful sleep. Couples report less disturbances at night thanks to the motion isolation of the memory foam. Happy owners of the Tempur-Pedic Adapt mattress say it’s worth the price for peaceful less restless sleep.

The Worst TEMPUR-Adapt Reviews

Unhappy buyers typically don’t like the firmness or poor thermoregulation of the Tempur-Adapt. Some have had delayed shipping, problems with packaging, or trouble with the mattress breaking down sooner than they expected. The materials used can sometimes cause headaches due to the flame retardants used in production.

While it’s relatively easy to file a claim with Tempur-Pedic, be sure and keep your proof of purchase as well as educate yourself on the mattress trial period and warranty terms. Purchasing a Tempur-Pedic from a third party source usually voids their warranty. Those who misunderstood terms were stuck with a pricey mattress they couldn’t return.

Tempur-Pedic Mattress Warranty

All Tempur-Pedic mattresses are covered by a 10-year full replacement limited warranty, meaning for up to 10 years after purchase, any confirmed defects covered under the warranty can be claimed for a repair or replacement with no deductible. This warranty extends only to mattresses purchased from Tempur-Pedic or an authorized Tempur-Pedic Retailer. Transportation fees associated with repairs or replacements are not covered by Tempur-Pedic.

Registering your product with Tempur-Pedic’s website can help keep record of your purchase for future reference and claims. If you’re making a claim through a third party authorized retailer, you’ll need proof of purchase to make it. Keep in mind the warranty for any replacement runs from the date of the original purchase. Be sure to read all terms and conditions before the purchase of any mattress, and keep all receipts and records of purchase in a safe place at home.

What The Tempur-Pedic Adapt Warranty Covers

Deterioration causing the mattress to have a visible indentation greater than three-fourths of an inch (0.75) is covered, as long as it isn’t associated with use of an improper or unsupportive foundation or adjustable bed base. Physical flaws that cause the Tempur material to split or crack despite proper set up and normal use are covered.

Manufacturing defects in zipper assembly of the cover are also covered, and if the cover needs replacing Tempur-Pedic offers the most current style available, which could be different than the cover originally provided. Note also that any extra pieces such as pumps, hoses or remotes provided with any Tempur-Pedic product is only warranted for 5 years, but may be qualified for replacement if deemed defective.

What The Tempur-Pedic Adapt Warranty Doesn’t Cover

Tempur-Pedic emphasizes that they may require proof of the quality of the base you’re using, and reserves the right to invalidate your warranty if they find it inadequate. If you purchased your mattress before 2014, the warranty may have been updated and changed. A natural increase in softness of the Tempur material that does not affect the overall quality of the mattress isn’t covered, and neither is overall comfort preference, meaning if you simply find the mattress uncomfortable after the trial period you may be stuck with your mattress.

Tempur-Pedic does not cover physical abuse or damage such as burns, cuts, stains, tears or liquid damage, and the warranty won’t apply to any mattress that is considered used, previously owned or sold through unauthorized retailers. It is strongly recommended to go over the warranty before contacting customer service, so you know whether or not you’d be wasting your time by making a claim.

Sleep Examiner’s Review Process

Here at Sleep Examiner, we consider ourselves expert reviewers of all things sleep. However, we believe that ten opinions are better than one, so we take on the task of opening twenty different browser tabs and digging deep so you don’t have to. We painstakingly comb through reviews on multiple sites for every mattress, pillow, and sleep accessory we can find – so you don’t get fooled by fake, biased, or limited points of view.

Using a combination of verified customer reviews, we put together in-depth research on the exact composition and materials used, as well as comparisons and ratings from expert sites. Once our research is concluded, our system automatically generates an overall performance score for each mattress based on the collected data in the following categories: Comfort, Firmness, Edge Support, Affordability, Cooling, Trial period, Warranty and Customer Support.

Our Analysis

TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Summary Analysis

Once Tempur-Pedic had built a strong reputation selling luxury memory foam mattresses, they bought out fellow mattress company Sealy, forming umbrella company Tempur-Sealy International in 2012. Tempur-Pedic donates mattresses to military personnel, first responders, disaster relief efforts and more.

Since they’re so large, you can find their flagship stores to try out mattress models for yourself, though according to reviewers their store models often feel different than the ones that are shipped out. The right frame and initial break in period can factor into how comfortable your mattress ultimately stays, so keep this in mind.

TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Performance Score

Comfort: 4/5
Back Support: 4.6/5
Edge Support: 4/5
Affordability: 4/5
Cooling: 3.8/5
Trial & Warranty: 4.2/5
Customer Service: 4.5/5

The Verdict: 4.5/5

The TEMPUR-Adapt is a great choice for those who are able to invest in their sleep experience. The medium firmness is a crowd pleaser, and the hybrid option provides extra appeal for those who don’t necessarily want an all foam bed. However, the firmness level might not be just right for some, and hot sleepers may want to shop for something more cooling. Be sure to read the terms and conditions before your purchase so you know what you’re getting into.
