Last year Tempur-Pedic merged with Sealy Corporation to become the largest bedding provider in the world. So when the mega company launched its new series of mattresses featuring TEMPUR-Breeze™ technology earlier this year, we were obviously elated. After all, Taos Lifestyle is a mattress company at heart and offering customers a true sleep sanctuary is what we strive to do.
A Better Cooling System
The new TEMPUR-Breeze collection is a series of mattresses with a new mix of innovative technology and materials. Like all Tempur Pedic mattresses, they retain the same great support, comfort and no-motion transfer that Tempur customers have come to expect.
The new addition is a state-of-the-art, 3-part cooling system within the mattress that consists of a CoolMax® moisture-wicking fabric cover, TEMPUR-Breeze™ Cooling materials in the comfort and support layers for drawing excess heat from the body, and the standard heat-dispersing base layer that removes remaining heat from the mattress. It ‘works like a breeze’, hence the name. But are they really that good?
We’ve got in-depth reviews of two of the most popular versions right here to give you all the details!
The Supreme Breeze mattress is, in many ways, your mid-range mattress in the collection. The support system is moderately conforming, the comfort layer is extra thick (although not the thickest), and it extends to 11” high. It’s designed to give a good balance of extra-soft comfort with much-needed support, without going too far in either direction. Most importantly, the cooling system really does work, making sleep a much more enjoyable experience.
One of the downsides of the Supreme version is that it’s believed to be sensitive to cold temperature. If your room is chilly (from either A/C or windows), there is a chance the material could feel harder than normal. In addition, as with any of the Tempur-Pedic mattresses, there is a potential for unpleasant off-gassing from the memory foam. If you sleep in cold rooms or have a sensitive nose, you may want to inquire more about the mattress before making a purchase.
The TEMPUR-Cloud™ Supreme Breeze is on the pricier side, but it’s worth every penny! You won’t sweat anymore, you won’t wake up with aches and pains, and you won’t wake up your partner every time you move. You will feel healthy, you will feel comfortable, and you will feel cool. It’s an ideal choice for the average sleeper!
The Luxe Breeze mattress is the upper echelon of the Breeze collection. It is highly conforming, has an ultra-soft cloud-like top layer, and rises to 13” high. It is packed with comfort and support materials while still maintaining the new cooling mechanisms. Given today’s standards for mattresses, the Luxe Breeze is probably one of the softest, coolest, and most soothing options in the market and is likely to give you a great night’s sleep.
However, the mattress is so soft, that some people claim you sink “in” the mattress, rather than lay “on” the mattress. This can lead to heating issues that even the best cooling system can’t prevent. Others say it’s just so soft that it doesn’t provide the firm support that a lot of people need. However, most of these comments are personal, subjective opinions and not representative of the population.
This mattress does cost a hefty penny, but it’s designed for people who desire the ultimate nighttime luxury. Buying a TEMPUR-Cloud™ Luxe Breeze mattress is not just a purchase, it’s a multi-year investment in cooling comfort and bodily support for one of life’s most important necessities: sleep. You really won’t find anything else like it.
No mattress is perfect and choosing the right one, as always, comes down to personal preference. However, our reviews of the mattresses will hopefully guide you in the right direction and give you some insight into this exciting new collection from Tempur-Pedic.
