Which Tempurpedic mattress is best for side sleepers? After thoroughly reviewing the range and thinking about what I like from a mattress as a side sleeper myself, I think the Tempur ProAdapt is the best. IT’s got the right balance of firmness options, cooling if you need it, and value for money.
In this review of the best Tempurpedic mattress for side sleepers, I’ll focus on 3 main models. These are:
- Tempur Cloud Mattress
- Tempur ProAdapt Mattress
- Tempur Breeze Mattress
I’ll also explain why the Tempur ProAdapt is my top choice from the Tempurpedic range for side sleepers.
Tempur ProAdapt Mattress
The Tempur ProAdapt sells for $3,299 for a queen-size mattress. Marketed as a mattress that provides the ultimate comfort, the foam mattress comes in 4 firmness levels starting from soft and ending with the firm.
As far as side sleepers are concerned, the two options I recommend are soft and medium. The latter is a little firmer than the former although there are differences in the construction and performance as well. Every mattress comes with a 90-day free trial, 10 years warranty, and free shipping.
The construction of the Tempur ProAdapt varies depending on the firmness option you choose. For the soft option, the all-foam mattress has two layers. The first is the 2-inch comfort layer and it’s made of TEMPUR-ES®. This is the softest version of the proprietary Tempur material. It offers exceptional contouring qualities as the mattress conforms to your body and sends you into a soothing and relaxing sleep. The second layer is the 2-inch support layer made of TEMPUR-APR, an excellent pressure-relieving material that offers great support.
The medium-hybrid option has three layers. The comfort layer is also made of TEMPUR-ES® but is a little thicker measuring 2.3 inches. The transition layer is made of TEMPUR-APR and measures only 1.5 inches. The third layer uses proprietary hybrid technology and contains more than one thousand spring coils to provide responsiveness, motion isolation, and edge support. Although the medium-hybrid mattress has a thicker comfort layer, the coils make it a little firmer than the soft mattress.
The soft mattress scores 3 out of 10 on the firmness scale while the medium-hybrid scores 5. Both options do well for side sleepers. The excellent pressure relief, the amazing body contouring, and the temperature regulation are all what side sleepers ask out of a mattress. This probably explains why the Tempur ProAdapt is the most popular mattress Tempurpedic makes.
Tempur Cloud Mattress
The Tempur Cloud only comes in one firmness level and that is medium. But to achieve this firmness level that works perfectly for side sleepers, the mattress itself chooses two ways. The first is the famous all-foam mattress that Tempurpedic has got down to an art. The second is a hybrid mattress that combines the softness of the Tempur material with the durable support of spring coils. Either mattress sells for $2,199 and also has a 90-night free trial, free shipping, and a 10-year limited warranty.
As one would expect, the all-foam Tempur Cloud mattress has three layers made of Tempur and foam. The comfort layer sits directly under the moisture-wicking cover. It features the latest version of Tempur which cushions the body of the sleeper and responds to their every move. The second layer is made of a firmer Tempur development that provides support and pressure relief. The responsive layer adapts and conforms to the body of the sleeper as they shift and roll in the bed. The last layer is the base layer and is made of foam to provide structure and durability to the mattress.
The hybrid mattress has the same layers and cover as the all-foam mattress but with an added support layer in the form of thousands of spring coils. The coils do a good job isolating the movement of the sleeper or sleepers on top and suppressing any creaks or noise.
The medium-firm mattress scores 5 on the firmness scale and thanks to the Tempur comfort layers in both versions, the Tempur Cloud conforms to the body of the sleeper in their preferred side position, and lets the shoulder and hip joint sink in comfortably. This prevents any numbness the sleeper would feel in their shoulder in the morning.
Tempur Breeze Mattress
The Tempur Breeze is the ultimate in comfort and luxury that the company has rolled out to date. As you might expect, this luxurious experience comes with a high price tag attached to it. The Breeze comes in two versions: ProBreeze and LuxeBreeze. The LuxeBreeze is the most advanced Tempur mattress and the queen size sells for $5,099. It also has the same perks as the other two mattresses.
The LuxeBreeze only offers two firmness levels: soft and firm. For side sleepers, I recommend the soft version. The mattress has two Tempur layers. The comfort layer is 1.5 inches thick and made of TEMPUR-CM+, an advanced version of the Tempur material with maximum airflow to keep the mattress cool all night. The second layer is the support layer and is 2.3 inches thick. It’s made of TEMPUR-APR, a redesigned material that reduces the temperature of the mattress up to 8 degrees more than other materials.
The breathability of the mattress and the redesigned materials all contribute to the maximum comfort and cooling qualities of the Breeze. However, its high price puts it beyond the reach of many people.
All 3 Tempurpedic mattresses that I covered here, the Tempur Cloud, the Tempur Breeze, and the Tempur ProAdapt are excellent choices for side sleepers. But based on my personal opinion as well as the thousands of reviews from real customers, I heartily recommend the Tempur ProAdapt either the soft or medium hybrid versions for all side sleepers.
The Tempur ProAdapt offers the best choices of
- value for money
- soft or medium feel
- foam or hybrid base
And is therefore my top choice of all the Tempurpedic mattresses. If I lived in the USA, I’d happily have one in my own house and I’m sure you’ll love it too.
