TempurPedic Mattress Topper Review

A detailed review of the TempurPedic TEMPUR-Topper Supreme mattress pad.

Last Updated: July 6, 2020

In this review we dissect the memory foam topper from TempurPedic. It seems to go by two names: TEMPUR-Topper Supreme and Comfort Topper. Regardless, we discuss what it’s like and who we think it’s best for.

Why Get A Mattress Topper In The First Place?

There are a plethora of reasons to get a mattress topper, some of the most significant being that it can make your mattress softer, can change the feel of your mattress, and can extend the lifetime of your mattress. The TempurPedic Topper is great because you can somewhat get that classic TempurPedic thick memory foam feel, without going all in on a whole new mattress.

Keep in mind that a mattress topper will also add some thickness to your bed, up to 3”. They also can help to keep your current mattress clean, as some toppers are even machine washable.

If you find that your mattress is too thin or too firm, a topper is a great way to switch it up. Toppers are especially great for guest bedroomsAirbnb, college dorm mattresses, or even for pregnant women who should be sleeping on their left side once they have a visible bump.

You don’t need a TempurPedic mattress to use the TempurPedic topper, but it is a great option if you notice your TempurPedic gets too firm through the seasons (memory foam can get firmer in colder weather), while still getting that comforting contour that dense TempurPedic memory foam offers.

Buying The TEMPUR-Topper Supreme

The TempurPedic brand has been around for a long time. They were founded in 1992, and one could say that they were the company who made memory foam popular in the mattress world. Their TempurPedic topper is a good way to get their classic, dense memory foam feel, without springing for the entire bed.

You can expect your mattress topper to ship to you for free via UPS Ground. Make sure to unpackage it right away, as it will need some time to decompress and air out, much like a bed-in-a-box mattress.

Here’s one thing that you’ll want to keep in mind with the TEMPUR-Topper Supreme and other memory foam products: they remember their shape. I know, what an odd concept. The reason we mention this is that the topper will need 24-48 hours to fully expand after you remove it from the box. This is completely normal and is the case with Sealy CocoonNectar, and many of the other mattresses we’ve reviewed on this site.

This product is currently only available for return if it arrives damaged or there is a product defect. Otherwise, it’s not eligible for returns. The topper does come with a 25-year warranty, though, which you can read more about on TempurPedic’s website.

TempurPedic Topper Supreme Details

The TempurPedic Topper Supreme is made of the same material that their mattresses are made with; a proprietary memory foam called TEMPUR material. It’s made of millions of moveable cells, which are designed to cushion and support your body comfortably by evenly distributing your body weight.

The Topper Supreme is available in all sizes, including twin XL and Cal king. They do not offer custom sizing. The topper doesn’t have any form of attachment—you’re supposed to simply lay in on top of your mattress and then put your fitted sheet over both your mattress and your topper. This is a little inconvenient because it means that the topper more easily moves around on your bed. We wish it had a method for securing it in place, like straps.

What we do like about this topper is the cover. Because of the cover, there is no need to wash or dry clean the entire thing, which I’m sure would be a pain. Just zip the cover off and wash it in your machine with cold water, then hang to dry. This is great for anyone who enjoys sipping coffee in bed, but is also a little clumsy (i.e. most of us).

By the way, a topper is different from a mattress pad. Mattress pads are usually filled with fluffy material, which adds a barrier and makes your mattress feel a little softer, but doesn’t change the overall feel of the mattress. The Topper Supreme can change the feel of your mattress. So if you put it on top of a neutral-foam mattress like Leesa, your bed won’t have Leesa’s neutral-foam feel; your bed will have a memory foam feel.

What The TempurPedic Topper Supreme Feels Like

TempurPedic is well known for their super dense memory foam that you can sink deep into as the material contours around your body. When you lay down on this topper, you’ll find yourself slowly sinking into it. Keep in mind, because this is a thick memory foam, it can give you that “stuck” feeling. Some people love this, while others, such as combo sleepers who switch positions through the night, might feel stuck.

Remember that your weight will have an effect on how deep you sink into the topper. Lighter individuals tend to lay more on top of the material while heavier individuals sink down into it more.

This mattress topper is unique because it’s firmness level will depend on the mattress you’re putting it on top of. If you put this topper on a soft mattress like Layla, it will make your bed feel firmer. If you put it on top of a particularly firm mattress like the old Allswell Luxe, it will make your mattress feel softer. But either way, the Topper Supreme will give you a medium to medium-firm memory foam feel.

Also, this memory foam doesn’t have any cooling technology, so you might heat up because memory foam has a reputation for holding on to body heat. If you have either a hybrid mattress with coils or a mattress that has cooling technology, this topper might stifle that.


We’re not going to lie, you might get a little bit of sticker shock when you check out these prices. But considering the price of TempurPedic mattresses, you could argue that you’re saving money.

Review Verdict: TempurPedic Mattress Topper

This mattress topper is great for anyone who wants a memory foam feel, but can’t get their hands on an entire memory foam mattress. If you’ve been yearning to try out TempurPedic memory foam, this is your chance.

We wish that this topper had a form of attachment to the mattress and was a bit easier to unbox, but besides that, we think memory foam lovers will really enjoy this product.
