How we test products
Our mission is to take the guesswork out of finding the perfect sleep products.
We've dedicated hundreds of hours to testing mattresses and sleep accessories, and rely on a team of testers of differing weights, temperature preferences, and sleeping positions to evaluate each product.
Tested products are granted the Sleep Hero tested stamp of approval, a mark of our review's reliability.
If we haven't personally tested a product, please be assured that we invest significant time and energy into scouring the UK market and researching the best recommendations, and we work with a team of sleep experts who review our articles, ensuring that the insights we provide are not only relatable but also reliable.
What is memory foam?
Tempur material is the “original memory foam”, but it truly feels unique to any other memory foam product.
Made from billions of viscoelastic cells, the Tempur material responds to body heat and contours around your body shape. 🥰
The ultra-sensitive open cells provide unmatched pressure relief that makes you feel weightless. 🎈
It absorbs every motion and encourages your body to align in the most natural and comfortable position.
Tempur Mattress Topper 7 composition
The Tempur Mattress Topper 7 is made from a 7 cm deep layer of advanced Tempur material found in Tempur mattresses. 🔬
It also comes with a zippered cover made from 75% cotton and 25% polyester.
What is Tempur material?
Tempur material was invented in the late 1960s by NASA scientists. 👩🚀
Initially, the material was invented to absorb G-force during space travel.
The material was successful in absorbing motion and relieving pressure for astronauts in space.
So, in 1991 Tempur created the first memory foam mattress with this unique formula. 🧪
