TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Review

Whether you’re a longtime loyal customer to the TempurPedic brand or you’re a newcomer who’s interested in the popular mattress industry veterans, we’ve got you covered. Their TEMPUR-Adapt mattress line includes three beds with different price points, all equipped with their own cooling technology to help relieve hot sleepers. They are premium memory foam mattresses that aren’t ideal for budget shoppers. Instead, they’ll appeal to memory foam lovers looking to invest in their sleep, backed by a well-known big name brand. 

What Do The TempurPedic Adapt Hybrid Beds Feel Like? 

Overall, TEMPUR-Adapt and the rest of the Adapt line have a dense memory foam feel. When you first lay down, the bed feels firm, but after a few seconds, you start to sink as the memory foam contours to the shape of your body. It offers a good deal of support, but if what you want is a soft mattress, the Tempur-Adapt Hybrid is not it.


The TEMPUR-Adapt is about a medium-firm for someone that weighs between 150 lb and 250 lb. It’s a tad softer than DreamCloud but firmer than Nolah. We’d rate the Medium ProAdapt model the same, but the Pro model also has a Soft and Firm option. 

As a heads up, firmness is a relative measure. The heavier you are, the softer you will experience a mattress to be. The opposite is true for lighter individuals. We might put it at a medium-firm, but that doesn’t mean everyone will exactly agree with us. If you’re closer to 250 lb, you’re going to think the bed isn’t that firm. If you’re 125 lb, you’re going to argue that this bed is the definition of firm.

Pressure Relief

Most of the TempurPedic Adapt and ProAdapt models will fare towards the firm end of the spectrum, except the Soft Pro Adapt. We’d rate it around a medium, giving it a more pressure-relieving profile than the others. Though, it’s still not the most pressure-relieving bed we’ve tested. 


While a lot of memory foam beds tend to heat up and sleep warm at night, these Tempur-Pedic mattresses do a good job of cooling you down. That’s thanks in part to two things. First, their active-cooling covers help to dissipate heat. And second, the firmness profile of the bed ensures that most people will sleep on top of the bed rather than in the bed. In other words, less of the material will cover your body, which should help to keep you cooler.

It’s not the coolest mattress in the world, but it’s a nice option for hot sleepers that know for sure that they want a memory foam bed.

Construction Of The Tempur-Adapt Hybrid Mattress

The TempurPedic Adapt and TempurPedic ProAdapt mattresses come in two models: an all-foam option and a hybrid. The constructions are very similar, except Adapt is 11” while the ProAdapt is 12” and boasts a thicker memory foam layer. The image below shows a construction breakdown for the hybrid Adapt model. 

An inside look at the Tempur-Adapt Hybrid mattress


The Tempur-Adapt and ProAdapt Hybrid use both foam and coils. The base (or foundation layer) consists of 1,000 spring coils that are individually wrapped to reduce motion transfer but still offer plenty of support. 

Additionally, along the perimeter of the mattress is a dense layer of foam that acts as a border for the coils to help with edge support (more on this below). This is why you only see foam, no coils, in the image above.


In the Adapt model, next comes is a transition foam that Tempur-Pedic vaguely calls the “Original TEMPUR Support Layer.” This ensures you don’t feel the coils through the top of the mattress. This is a denser, firmer foam. The ProAdapt model also uses a memory foam transition layer; only it is their newest memory foam material. Though, we don’t notice a big difference in feel. 


On top is a slightly softer layer of memory foam, which Tempur-Pedic calls “TEMPUR-ES Comfort Layer.” This is the layer you’ll feel most. It has a true, deep memory foam feel.


The Tempur-Adapt Hybrid has a knit cotton cover with a cooling gel technology that makes it cool to the touch. It’s not the softest cover ever, but it does actively cool you down throughout the night, which is a good thing since traditional memory foam beds are known for sleeping a little warmer.

The ProAdapt model has a Smart Climate Dual cover and unlike the base Adapt model—it’s machine washable. 


The hybrid versions of TEMPUR-Adapt and TEMPUR-ProAdapt mattresses are going to be more durable than their all-foam counterparts. These TempurPedic hybrid mattresses should last you ten years or more.

TempurPedic Mattress Body Type Analysis 

Your size and weight will have an impact on the way a mattress feels. Below, we offer up our recommendation for each body type.

  • Petite Individuals

    If you weigh under 150 lbs, we recommend you go for one of the foam models. You don’t need to spend the extra money on a supportive hybrid mattress. With that being said, these beds will likely all feel more firm to you, so make sure a medium-firm to firm mattress is what you’re looking for.

  • Average Individuals

    Whether you want an all-foam or hybrid model, any bed from the TempurPedic Adapt line will do!

  • Heavy Individuals

    For people over 230 lbs, we suggest one of the hybrid mattresses from the Adapt line. They will be more supportive than the all-foam and more long-lasting. Though, beds may feel slightly softer than how we described them in our review.

Tempur-Pedic Hybrid Sleeper Analysis

Sit and think about your favorite sleeping position during the night. It will help you decide which firmness option is most accommodating.

  • Side Sleepers

    Of the models within the Tempur-Adapt line, the soft, medium and medium hybrid should be fine for side sleepers, though it depends on your preference for firmness. Petite and average side sleepers, for example, might gravitate toward the soft model.

    Larger side sleepers (i.e., over 250 lb) will want to go with the medium hybrid option for the reasons we mentioned above. The pressure relief will certainly be there, as well as the support given the coil base.

  • Back And Stomach Sleepers

    There is a similar story for back sleepers and stomach sleepers—there is a model that will be suitable. You will likely want to stick to the medium, medium hybrid, and firm models.

    When you lay on the Tempur-Pedic mattress, your weight gets distributed, so the firmness level you select will come down to your body type. In any case, though, you have at least three options to choose from with the Tempur-ProAdapt.

  • Combination Sleepers

    For anyone who rotates positions at night (i.e., a combination sleeper), a memory foam bed could be just what you need or don’t need, depending on how your body reacts to the bed. For example, if you toss and turn at night, the memory foam could leave you feeling restless because it takes more effort to switch sleeping positions. On the flip side, because the memory foam creates a little cocoon for your body to lay in, it could stop you from tossing and turning so much.

    For the reasons above, we consider this bed a “maybe” for combo sleepers—again, depending on how your body reacts. The medium hybrid model will be the most ideal for combination sleepers because it’s a little quicker to respond.

Is Tempur-Pedic A Good Mattress For Couples?

We think any bed in the TempurPedic Adapt line will be a suitable mattress for couples, as long as both partners sleep a little warmer and like memory foam. Beyond that, there are two areas that are important that the Tempur-Adapt beds perform well in.

Edge Support

The first is edge support, which refers to the strength of the edges of the bed. If the bed is too soft, you can get a roll-off sensation. Fortunately, because it has a dense foam border, All TempurPedic Adapt models have good edge support. Feel free to spread out on these mattresses.

Motion Isolation 

The second element is motion isolation. Remember those Tempur-Pedic commercials from 1995 where they put a wine glass on the bed and jumped around on the mattress, and the glass didn’t spill? Well, we tried that with a glass of water, and it didn’t spill with us either.This means that when your partner moves, you’ll have a lower chance of feeling it. The Tempur-Adapt and ProAdapt Hybrids probably aren’t the absolute best mattress for light sleepers, but they are some of the better hybrid options.

Tempur-Pedic Luxe Adapt Review

By now, we have covered Tempur-Pedic mattresses, so rather than go through everything with the LuxeAdapt, let’s cover what’s special about it—besides the $2,299 price tag for the queen size. The following is according to Tempur-Pedic’s website.

  • It’s 30% more conforming, meaning the memory foam (i.e., “TEMPUR-APR+”) is more accommodating.
  • It has a 13″ height profile versus 12″ for the ProAdapt.
  • No hybrid option.
  • No double or full size.

We think the vast majority of consumers will be fine with the Tempur-Adapt or -ProAdapt and can save at least $1,000 in the process.

TempurPedic Adapt Hybrid Prices

TempurPedic is known for their premium products, so you can expect to pay a higher price tag when it comes to these beds. Here’s a price table showing all the TempurPedic beds so you can compare the Adapt line to their other options:

Twin XL$1,799
Cal King$2999

They aren’t always running discounts, but it’s not unheard of to see a TempurPedic mattress promotion going on! Check our page or follow our shop now link to check out current discounts. 

TempurPedic Adapt Mattress Review Verdict

From the three TEMPUR-Adapt mattress models, we think the main ones worth considering are the Adapt and ProAdapt. The LuxeAdapt is definitely nice, but we think it’s a little too expensive compared to what you get with the other two beds. TEMPUR-Adapt and TEMPUR-ProAdapt both come in hybrid and foam models, making them ideal for any body type who loves the feel of dense memory foam. We also love these options for hot sleepers who want a cooling sensation from their mattress. If you have the money to spend on a luxury memory foam bed, these certainly are great options.
