Tempur mattress test and review

Tempur mattress test and review

It all started in the stars, and in the early 1970s, the Tempur material was developed at the NASA Research Center. Tempur begins its activity by making a material whose purpose was to relieve astronauts’ pressure when taking off.

Ten years later, a Swedish manufacturer decided to use this innovative foam material in mattresses for consumers worldwide.

Tempur thus manufactures a so-called thermosensitive foam, reacting to the heat of the body and the room, which offers a feeling of envelopment and exceptional absorption properties of pressure points. It is the memory foam, which covers all Tempur mattresses and ergonomic pillows.

Since then, the TEMPUR bedding brand, which manufactures its mattresses in Denmark and the USA, has continued to develop its technologies for ever more efficient products. It owns the best-known brands in the bedding market: Tempur®, Tempur-Pedic®, Sealy®, Sealy Posturepedic®, Optimum ™, and Stearns & Foster®. Since 2011, Tempur is the world number one in bedding.

We chose to test the Original Coolsoft mattress, elite version, among other available mattresses such as the Tempur Cloud mattress or the Tempur Hybrid mattress.


Our opinion on the Tempur Cooltouch mattress

Aesthetic aspect

The TEMPUR Original Cooltouch mattress comes in 2 visible parts:

The top part

The upper part, in white colour, has a unique embossed ticking that uses Cooltouch technology. Very pleasant to the touch, it leaves a feeling of freshness.

Middle part

A zip allows you to remove the Quick Refresh cover, which is machine washable at 60 °. Your mattress thus keeps all its freshness.

Lower part

The lower part is covered with a grey, non-slip fabric. A coloured label specifies the name of the Collection.

Refreshing technology

With its Quickrefresh technology, the cover eliminates odours and keeps your mattress fresh.

You can easily find the size you want: Tempur brand mattresses are available in several mattress sizes on mattressdubai.ae , but also several mattress thicknesses are available.


The composition of the Tempur mattress

Several technologies and layers make up the TEMPUR Original Cooltouch mattress (Elite version):

  • A 3 cm layer of extrasoft Tempur material.
  • A 9cm layer of memory foam, Tempur material, a high-performance material that reacts to your body weight and temperature. When you lie down, the complex network of interconnected viscoelastic cells softens, gradually adjusting to the curves of your body for quality sleep. On contact with your body’s colder areas, or when you stand up, it becomes firmer and regains its original shape.
  • 2 layers of 6.5 cm Durabase material.
  • Not to mention the Quick  Refresh cover

The Tempur material also gives you perfect sleeping independence. You will no longer suffer from your partner’s movements. This is what gives the shape memory mattress effect.


The making of the Tempur mattress

Comfort level

Any comfort

The TEMPUR Original Cooltouch mattress offers well-balanced comfort and good firm support. The one we have chosen has a thickness of 25cm (Elite), but it is also available in 19cm (Prima), 21cm (Supreme) and 30cm (Luxe).

The materials that make up this mattress allow optimal pressure relief. The sleeper’s weight is distributed evenly for unparalleled comfort, regardless of the sleeping position. With their remarkable absorption capacity, the rebound effect is limited. So you turn around less often during the night and wake up less. You have a restful sleep.

The breathability of the Tempur mattress

A breeze of freshness sweeps your nights. Thanks to Cooltouch technology, all the moisture in your mattress is evacuated. Your mattress benefits from perfect ventilation and good air circulation. No more nights when you will be too hot: they will now always be at the right temperature.

Adapts to the seasons

Whatever the season, you will no longer have to turn your mattress. The Tempur Original mattress adapts and guarantees you freshness in summer, and a warm welcome in winter, thanks to Cooltouch technology.

Our opinion on the pricing policy

TEMPUR Original Cooltouch is a mattress that uses space technology for weightless sleep. This technology positions Tempur mattresses in the luxury bedding market. It is available in 9 sizes and 4 thicknesses. Depending on the thickness chosen, the number of sizes offered will be different.

We chose the Cooltouch Elite mattress, with a thickness of 25 cm. It is available in 6 sizes: 3 for a single bed and 3 for a double bed. The call price for the 80×200 mattress is 2.179 €. It takes € 3,299 for the standard 140×190 mattress size and € 4,069 for the king-size 180×200 mattress.

Because of its products’ quality, the price nevertheless appears amply justified and consistent with the various advanced technologies used to design the best mattress.

Tempur does not offer a refund but an exchange of mattresses. Please note, however, that transport costs are your responsibility unless you have the option of returning the mattress to the warehouse. If you choose a cheaper mattress, you will not be refunded the difference. Conversely, if the mattress is more expensive, you will pay the surplus.
