For the people who love the TempurPedic mattress brand or their signature dense memory foam feel, but hate the price you typically have to pay for one, the brand has a solution. The Tempur Pedic Cloud mattress is their answer to the bed-in-a-box industry, and it has a fairly affordable price compared to the rest of their models. Plus, it’s the only TempurPedic mattress that gets delivered to you rolled up inside of a box.
In this Cloud mattress review, we break down the types of sleepers who we think will really love this mattress and why you should or shouldn’t buy this bed.
TempurPedic Cloud Bed Feel And Firmness
The Tempur Pedic Cloud mattress has the typical dense/viscous feel that you’d immediately associate with Tempur-Pedic. If you like a deep sink-in sensation, you’ll probably like this bed. You lay on the bed and slowly sink in as it conforms to the shape of your body. Certain people love memory foam (around 22%, according to our research), and others don’t.
Tempur Cloud is technically a “medium,” though our editors rate it at a medium-firm. It’s firmer from the start and softens with use, temperature and pressure.
It’s not the most pressure-relieving mattress because of its firmer profile. Still, memory foam has a natural tendency to relieve pressure around aching points because it conforms and hugs your body. Though, if you want a really pressure-relieving bed, check out our best plush mattress list.
Given that this Tempur-Pedic mattress has standard memory foam and no cooling cover, we expect that it will sleep on the warmer side.
Tempur-Pedic Cloud Mattress Design
The Tempur Cloud mattress is a three-layer foam mattress that measures out to 10” thick. It has a simple design, much like Nectar, Leesa, and many other online bed-in-a-box options.
The base of the Cloud bed is made with a thick layer of dense foam. It acts as a foundation to maintain the integrity of the rest of the mattress.
The center of the bed contains their “Tempur Support Layer”. It is softer than the dense foam below but firmer than the top layer to provide more support for the bed.
The top layer is called the “Tempur Comfort Layer,” and it’s exactly what the name implies. This is where you’ll get a bulk of the bed’s comfort, and it feels like dense conforming memory foam.
The cover on this mattress isn’t cooling like the other TempurPedic models and is more moisture-wicking and stretchier than your standard mattress cover. Though, it’s not machine washable, so you’ll have to spot clean with warm water and a mild detergent in the case of a spill.
The Tempur Cloud isn’t extremely durable. It’s a 10” all-foam bed and won’t last as long as a thicker foam bed or a hybrid mattress. It’s not going to fall apart on you in a few years, but we wouldn’t expect a decade of support and comfort from this bed.
Body Type Analysis
Your weight and BMI will play a role in how supportive a mattress is going to be. Below, we break down how accommodating this bed will be based on your body type.
- Petite Individuals
If you weigh under 150 lbs, the Tempur Cloud mattress will be perfect for you. It might be a tad bit firmer than a medium-firm, though, so it probably isn’t best for petite side sleepers.
- Average Individuals
We also think folks under 230 lbs will sleep just fine on the Cloud mattress from TempurPedic. It won’t be as supportive as a TempurPedic hybrid bed, but it will stand the test of time and keep your body supported.
- Heavy Individuals
If you weigh over 230 lbs, we recommend a TempurPedic Adapt hybrid mattress which will be more supportive than the all-foam TEMPUR-Cloud. Beds that contain both foam and coils prove to be more supportive and long-lasting for plus-size body types.
Sleeper Type Analysis
We anticipate that all sleeping positions will be fine on the bed, but this does depend on you.
- Side Sleepers
Some side sleepers should find ample pressure relief with this bed, but if you weigh under 175 lbs or so, it might be a little too firm. We usually recommend medium to soft mattresses to side sleepers unless you have a heavier body type.
- Back And Stomach Sleepers
We think this mattress will be great for back and stomach sleepers because it has a supportive and firm profile around a medium firm. This means it should keep your back in neutral alignment while you sleep, preventing pesky back pain.
- Combination Sleepers
Most people who switch positions while they sleep will likely feel comfortable on this mattress, but it might be a little firm if you mostly favor your side. Otherwise, the TempurPedic Cloud bed is a good choice!
Is TEMPUR Cloud A Good Mattress For Couples?
Aside from considering your body and sleeper type, couples looking for a new mattress should also take a bed’s motion isolation and edge support into account.
When you sleep with a partner and you’re pushed to the side of the mattress, you don’t want the edge to be flimsy and give easily. The edge support on the TEMPUR-Cloud mattress isn’t phenomenal, but it’s on par with most all-foam beds.
Motion Isolation And Noise
The Cloud mattress from TempurPedic passed the motion isolation test with flying colors, and it virtually makes no noise. The memory foam is excellent at absorbing motion, making it much harder for you to feel your partner tossing and turning during the night.
TempurCloud Mattress Price
We aren’t thrilled with the price of this mattress. We understand that Tempur-Pedic is a premium brand, but we don’t think the Tempur-Cloud is as affordable as it should be, especially relative to the Tempur Adapt, which is only about $200 more.
Last time we were on Tempur-Pedic’s website, we noticed that the Tempur-Cloud was $2,000 for the queen-size (again $200 less than the Tempur Adapt, which we think is a nicer bed).
So, just on an MSRP basis, we think you should buy the Tempur Adapt over the Tempur-Cloud, but that’s not the whole story. They do run discounts for this mattress, which brings a queen size down to $1,399, which is a heck of a lot more affordable. So, during a discount, we think it’s worth it. Otherwise, we’d check out their base Adapt model.
TempurPedic Tempur Cloud Mattress Review Verdict
TempurPedic is known for its luxury mattresses, and the TEMPUR-Cloud is supposed to be a more affordable entry-level mattress. We think the retail price is a bit steeper than it should be, but if you can catch it during a discount, it may be worth the money for you. If you’re a big memory foam lover and primarily sleep on your back, stomach, or a combination of those positions, this will deliver a true, contouring memory foam feel. It won’t be very suitable for sleepers over 230 lbs, or people looking for a softer mattress.
