Tempurpedic has a newly engineered mattress that claims to sleep 8 degrees cooler allowing you to fall asleep faster and sleep more comfortably throughout the night. We put it to the test to see how it stacks up against other popular brands. Tempurpedic is sort of the gold standard when it comes to memory foam as they have been pioneers in bringing memory foam mattresses to market and have the most experience tweaking and layering the foam for the most optimal feel.
Overview of the Tempurpedic Luxe Breeze
Here’s a video overview of the Tempurpedic Luxe Breeze. Unlike most of the mattresses, I review this one can actually be tried out in stores.
Ordering your Tempurpedic Mattress
You can buy this mattress is a retail partner store, through their website or even over the phone. However you buy it, you are backed by a 90 day try out period. This means that you can sleep on it for 90 nights and if you don’t like it you can return it. Just note that Tempurpedic may charge a shipping fee of $175 for the return. When you buy direct you also get free shipping and Tempurpedic’s 10 Year Warranty.
This mattress comes with white glove delivery. You will get a call to schedule delivery of your mattress and it will be delivered to the room of your choosing. The delivery company will unbox the mattress and put it on your bed. Unlike most online companies, this mattress comes delivered its full size so there’s no waiting for it to fully decompress.
Tempurpedic mattresses have other conveniences that other companies overlook such as handles underneath the mattress which make it easy to transport or rotate.

Here’s a picture of the mattress without the cover. As you can see the foam is cleanly cut, they don’t use too much glue and the inside looks just as nice as the outside. They even have a rfid tag on the foam so they can discern when are where the foam was made for quality control.
My Tempurpedic Luxe Breeze Findings
Given the price of this mattress, I had very high expectations going into my review. While looks certainly aren’t everything, the do matter. I have come to find over the years that mattresses that look good often feel good. What I mean by that is the mattress is symmetrical, there are no sagging corners or loose threads, branding is clear, zippers are functional and the box it is shipped in is clean and sturdy. This mattress checks all those boxes.
Here you can clearly see the Tempurpedic logo and make and model. I’m sure this is in part because they are primarily sold in retails stores but it is nice to know right away that you got what you paid for and there is no doubt about the make and model.
This mattress actually has two zipper systems. One is accessible from the bottom and will allow you to take off the entire cover and the other will unzip the top cover. As you can see even the zippers are high quality, easy to use and durable.
What struck me first about this mattress was the cover. It just feels luxurious. I could tell right away that it was well made and will hold up for many years. Cheap covers can actually tear over time or more likely tear when they are being transported. The cover also plays a big part in the overall feel of the mattress.
For this review, I received the soft version of the LUXE breeze. Below you can see how much by 14 lb. bowling ball sinks into the mattress. Tempurpedic mattresses normally skew a bit firmer than most mattresses. With the soft version, I found it to contour very well without sinking too much. The newer Tempurpedic models such as this one have faster recovery times without sacrificing pressure relief. If you want an ultra-soft mattress, this probably won’t be it but I think most people, especially side and back sleepers will really like how this mattress contours to your body.
Here’s another shot of contouring without the cover on.
There are many brands now that have cooling technology built into the mattress. But, they vary wildly in how much cooling material they actually add. With this mattress, they don’t skimp. You will notice right away how cool it feels when you lay down. The idea is that it will cool your body to prepare for sleep and thus help you fall asleep just a bit faster.
Because this cover is made with a phase change material, I advise against washing it. You can wash it in a washing machine with cold or warm water, but it will decrease the cooling effectiveness of the cover. I advise using a mattress protector instead.
Memory foam is notorious for sleeping hot and normally the denser the foam the more heat it will trap. The LUXE Breeze is able to give you durable, quality foam with a new technology to help you sleep cooler giving you all the benefits of foam without any of the drawbacks.
My Tempurpedic Breeze Luxe Recommendation
Tempurpedic mattresses are not cheap. This model costs $4,499 for a queen size but keep in mind that Tempur often throws in incentives like 0% apr financing, credit towards an adjustable bed or other discounts throughout the year. You might be wondering what justifies the cost of this mattress over others. In short, I think it comes down to quality. You are buying a brand that knows how to make a foam mattress better than anyone. You are also getting quality material throughout from a company that will be around for a long time.
If mattresses were cars, the Tempurpedic would be the Maserati of mattresses. It looks and performs perfectly but it also comes with a cost. If you want to make a serious investment in your sleep, definitely check out the Luxe Breeze.
