TempurPedic Tempur Cloud Pillow Review

An in depth review of the TempurPedic Tempur-Cloud Pillow

It’s not for everyone, but if you want a softer memory foam pillow for petite and medium-size individuals it’s a pretty good option. There’s nothing that makes this pillow stand out from the crowd, but there’s also no major discernible flaws.

Who Is This Pillow Best For?

  • Petite individuals that sleep on their side or back
  • Medium-size people that sleep on their back, stomach, or side or if they rotate positions at night
  • Heavier people that sleep exclusively on their stomach
  • Anyone that wants a softer memory foam pillow
  • People that want a pillow with a machine-washable cover

Who Won't Love This Pillow?

  • Budget shoppers not looking to spend around $80 on a single pillow
  • Folks that hate memory foam
  • Anyone that sleeps especially warm throughout the night
  • If you’re looking for an adjustable pillow or one that’s firm

Pricing, Shipping, etc.

The TEMPUR-Cloud Pillow is one of TempurPedic’s most popular pillows, at least if you’re shopping online via the TempurPedic website. At $79, it’s clearly not a budget-tier pillow, however, they do often run specials where you can get 2 pillows for $100.

Also, we have seen it cheaper on Amazon (as low as $55 per pillow). It does come with free shipping and a 5-year warranty for the foam and a 2-year warranty for the cover.

One thing that’s unfortunate with the TEMPUR-Cloud Pillow though, is that there’s no trial period and you cannot return the pillow for any reason. That’s in contrast to plenty of other pillows that we’ve review, including the Helix Pillow and Leesa Hybrid Pillow.

Construction of the TEMPUR Cloud Pillow

This is a softer pillow and it is using one continuous slab of memory foam. And keep in mind that memory foam feels a little firm at first, but then sinks in to allow for a good amount of pressure relief. This particular memory foam though, is a little softer in terms of its ILD rating so it will feel pretty soft when you’re laying on it.

Also, memory foam tends to be a bit firmer in the winter time when it’s cooler out and softer when it’s in a warmer environment. You won’t notice a drastic change with the pillow, but you may experience a slightly softer or firmer pillow depending on the temperature.

As for the cover, it’s made of 100% polyester and is machine-washable, which is nice. Just make sure to follow the care instructions for cleaning.

Loft of the TEMPUR-Cloud Pillow

Uncompressed the pillow has about a 5” loft, which is about standard for most pillows we see out there. It’s not on the thick or thin end, but rather right in the middle. When you do compress the pillow, however, it has about a 2-3” loft. Now, this is specific to your size, frame, and sleeping position, but i will be about 2-3” for most people.

Back and Side Sleepers

We see the pillow being best for petite and medium-size individuals that sleep on their stomach and side. You need to make sure that you’re keeping proper alignment and that your neck isn’t all out of whack, but for most people between 100 lbs and 200 lbs it will best for back/side sleepers.

What About Stomach Sleepers?

If you have a medium to large frame, you will probably be just fine as a stomach sleeper with this pillow. Larger individuals will certainly only be using this as a stomach sleeper’s pillow, while medium-size folks can feel free to rotate positions, as it’s fairly accommodating.

Does it Sleep Cool?

Short answer, no. There are no special cooling fabrics woven into the cover nor are they using a gel memory foam. It’s a fairly standard, softer memory foam with a basic polyester cover.

Therefore, if you sleep really warm at night you may want to check out their TEMPUR-Cloud Breeze Cooling Pillow, which I’ll warn you is expensive, but absolutely sleeps cool at night. You can read our full review for more details on that, but it actually has a gel cooling pad on the top and bottom that’s cool-to-the-touch.

Verdict on This Pillow

While it’s not our favorite pillow in the world, there is a lot to like about it. It’s comfortable and accommodating, plus has a machine-washable cover. Whether it’s worth $79 per pillow, that’s up to you. But, if you want a memory foam pillow that’s durable and medium in terms of size/loft, it’s a pretty good option.

How did the Slumber Yard get this pillow?

We were sent this pillow by TempurPedic in order to review it.

Does TempurPedic accept returns?

No. Unfortunately, TempurPedic does not accept any returns of the TEMPUR-Cloud Pillow.

How Would You Rate The Firmness?

We’d say this is about a medium-soft to a soft pillow. A lot of this depends on your size, but it’s fairly soft overall.

Is There Any Off-Gassing?

As with any new foam-based product that’s made in a factory, there is always some off-gassing. It will smell a little bit like a clean factory at first, but the smell definitely subsides and should be gone completely in a week or so.

What are the Dimensions of the Pillow?

The pillow is 24" x 15 3/4" x 5” and will fit basically any standard or queen size pillow case.
