Tempur-Pedic vs. the Biggest Competitors


Tempur-pedic vs competitors

Whether you like a soft mattress or firm support each night, a Tempur-Pedic mattress is a fantastic choice. A Tempur-Pedic will conform to your body, reducing uncomfortable pressure points while you sleep.

These foam mattresses are specifically designed to help you get a good night’s sleep, because they are not made from regular memory foam but actually thick layers of “Tempur.” Millions of moveable cells are designed to respond to your body’s weight, shape, position, and temperature to maximize comfort. Every Tempur-Pedic mattress is made with the same pressure-relieving material originally developed by NASA to absorb the g-force of astronauts during shuttle launches, then perfected by our scientists for sleep.

Clearly, the entire Tempur-Pedic lineup are great mattresses! That is why we’re proud to sell them here at City Mattress. We have a wide range of Tempur-Pedic choices, including the very cool Luxe Breeze, the incredibly cushiony Luxe Adapt Soft, and the always popular Pro Breeze Medium. You may be looking at this list and wondering how Tempur-Pedic stacks up against the competition. We’re happy to tell you!

Sleep Number vs. Tempur-Pedic

Sleep Number is another common competitor you may have heard of. Sleep Number mattresses use air for support and a type of memory foam for comfort. Their support and firmness can be adjusted by removing or adding air from the inner air compartments with the help of an electric pump. Tempur-Pedic, on the other hand, uses its Tempur foam for support and comfort. The Tempur® Support Layer provides advanced adaptability for truly personalized comfort and support. Because these mattresses are so supportive, you don’t necessarily need a Firm comfort feel to wake up without aches and pains. Even a Medium or Soft mattress will keep your head, neck, and spine aligned properly all night long.

It is important to note that with Sleep Number, there are moving parts in these models which can break and malfunction. As well, Sleep Number beds need electricity to work. We regularly have customers switch from Sleep Number to another mattress brand for both of these reasons. A Tempur-Pedic mattress automatically contours to the sleeper’s body in order to support their spine; it doesn’t need air pockets or electricity to do it! When comparing Sleep Number Bed vs. Tempur-Pedic this is very important to keep in mind.

Tempur-Pedic vs. Purple

Purple made a splash in the bed-in-a-box boom of the last few years. If you’re a little concerned with how a great mattress could fit inside a small box and be shipped to you that way, you are not alone. Purple technically utilizes a polymer material in its comfort layer, but it’s worth noting that this is nothing compared to the Tempur foam in terms of longevity, support, or comfort.

A Purple cover is made of a polyester and spandex blend. It is made up of a Comfort Layer, Transition Layer, and Foundation layer. A Purple mattress really feels nothing like a Tempur-Pedic- and doesn’t try to. This brand goes more for “bounce” while Tempur-Pedic mattresses are designed to let you comfortably sink in. If you love the enveloping feeling of climbing into a bed that conforms to your every curve, Tempur-Pedic gives you this.

Whether you look at Tempur-Pedic vs. Purple, or Sleep Number vs. Tempur-Pedic, we think Tempur-Pedic is the clear winner! If you would like to come test out this mattress brand for yourself, visit your nearest City Mattress location and lay down. You’ll feel the difference of Tempur foam right away!
