In our Tempur mattress review, we put the mattress collection to the test to see if these products are worthy of their reputation and high price point.

Let's get exploring. 👇

The mattresses are topped with Tempur Extra Soft material, followed by the Tempur Support material, and underpinned by the Durabase for better stability and support.

It is an excellent choice for those looking for the body-hugging and pressure-relieving feel of Tempurpedic memory foam without the difficulty of movement.

  • Tempur memory foam
  • Soft, medium, or firm
  • 20 cm (7.8 inches)

Tell me more about the Tempur One

The Tempur One is made from the classic, comfortable, and pressure-relieving Tempur memory foam material.

Unlike other Tempur models, which come in one firmness level, One by Tempur allows you to choose your level of firmness

Also, unlike the other ranges, One by Tempur is only available in a low height 20 cm (7.8 inches) option.

It also only comes in 3 sizes: double, king, and super king, compared to the 10 UK and EU sizes that most other Tempur mattresses are available in.

Handily, the more affordable One by Tempur also comes with a removable and machine-washable mattress cover.

Tempur mattress selection

At first glance, the Tempur mattress selection can be a little confusing. 🤯

There are several options available, including different models within various collections.

Making sense of choices

Luckily, we've spent some time studying the Tempur collection to help you make sense of it all.

Understanding the Tempur mattress range

There are five basic models in the Tempur mattress range.

These are:

  • Tempur Original mattresses
  • Tempur Hybrid mattresses
  • Tempur Cloud mattresses
  • Tempur Sensation mattresses
  • One by Tempur mattresses

These mattresses (except for One by Tempur) are often further subdivided into three categories:

  • Supreme: Mattresses with a depth of 21 cm (8.2 inches)
  • Elite: Mattresses with a depth of 25 cm (10 inches) and QuickRefresh covers
  • Luxe: Mattresses with a depth of 30 cm (11.8 inches) and QuickRefresh covers
Tempur categories
The most notable difference between the Tempur Supreme, Elite, and Luxe models is the mattress depth.

While terms like "QuickRefresh cover" may sound fancy, it simply means the zips are placed at the top of the mattress, making it easier to remove and, therefore, wash the mattress cover. 🧼

For all Tempur mattresses, the Supreme version is the cheapest and the Luxe the most expensive.

Let's take a closer look at the various models in each Tempur mattress collection.

One by Tempur mattresses

One by Tempur is the newest and cheapest Tempur mattress. 🤩

Unlike most Tempur mattresses, the One by Tempur is only available in one depth, a relatively low height of 20 cm (7.8 inches).

However, it is available in three different firmness levels (soft, medium, and firm).

Like the other Tempur mattresses, the One by Tempur is a no-turn mattress that comes with a removable and washable cover. 🧼


Who are Tempur mattresses suitable for?

While Tempur has some of the best mattresses on the market, they're not cheap (not by a long shot)! 💰💰💰

Tempur mattresses are best for:

  • People looking for a luxury mattress
  • Those who suffer from neck or back pain
  • Couples
  • People who feel the cold easily

Let's take a closer look at why Tempur mattresses are so good for these groups of people. 🔍

People looking for a luxury mattress

Tempur mattresses are the crème de la crème of mattresses.

memory foam feels different to other mattresses
High-quality, comfortable, and with a high price tag - There's no denying Tempur's mattresses are a luxury.

They are an excellent choice if you want the best product and have no budgetary constraints. 💰

Tempur was the first brand to revolutionise the use of memory foam in mattresses and is still the only one to incorporate NASA-approved foam.


People with back or neck pain

Tempur material adapts perfectly to the body's contours.

This reduces pressure points throughout the body, particularly in the hips, shoulders, and neck. 💢

By contouring to the body, Tempur memory foam supports your entire body, ensuring optimal spinal alignment.

Spinal alignment
Body-adaptive support is particularly beneficial for side sleepers since their hips and shoulders need to sink into the mattress to achieve a straight spine.

Tempur mattresses support the body as and where it needs.

They help prevent pressure build-ups and reduce aches and back pains! 👏


Tempur's high-density memory foam has very low motion transfer.

This means motion isn't passed through the mattress, so you won't feel your partner tossing and turning.

Mattress motion transfer
Mattresses with low-motion transfer are great for couples

Tempur's low-motion transfer mattresses are ideal for couples, especially if one of you fidgets frequently or if you have different sleep schedules.


People who easily feel cold at night

Memory foam retains more heat than other foams. 🥵

Temperature regulation scale
Sleeping on a memory foam mattress often feels hotter than sleeping on other types of mattresses.

People who easily feel cold at night generally like the extra warmth and comfort of a memory foam mattress.


Still not sure if a Tempur mattress is right for you?

Let's narrow things down a little further by looking at who shouldn't buy from Tempur. 👇

Who are Tempur mattresses NOT suitable for?

While Tempur mattresses are undeniably high-quality products, they're not great for everyone. 🙅

Tempur mattresses are unsuitable for:

  • Hot sleepers (you'll be better off with a spring mattress or cooling mattress).
  • Those who prefer the bounce of a spring mattress may find Tempur foam mattresses uncomfortable.
  • People on a budget.

Why not check out some of our more affordable options if you're still unsure whether a Tempur mattress is for you?

How comfortable are Tempur mattresses?

Tempur mattresses are among the most comfortable (if expensive) options on the market.

This is largely because Tempur relies on world-class materials, including their revolutionary NASA-approved memory foam. 😳

Let's explore this a bit further.

The science behind Tempur's memory foam

Tempur is the original memory foam mattress brand.

The history of memory foam dates back to 1966 when NASA [1] first designed it as a pressure-absorbing material to cushion astronauts' seats and absorb impact during space travel. 🚀

nasa-approved memory foam
To this day, Tempur is still the only mattress brand with official NASA certification.

Today, you don't have to be an astronaut to experience space technology.

Tempur moved memory foam from space travel into the mattress market and launched its first memory foam mattress in 1991.


Why is Tempur memory foam so special?

Memory foam (or viscoelastic polyurethane foam) is made of polyurethane [2] and a few additional chemicals which increase viscosity and density.

It is characterised by its so-called memory effect (or memory imprint).

So, when you apply pressure to the foam, it leaves an imprint.

Below, you can see how this memory effect works on the Tempur Sensation Elite mattress. 👇

Tempur sensation elite mattress with hand

Tempur sensation elite memory effect

Tempur sensation elite mattress memory imprint

This 'memory effect' allows the foam to adapt remarkably well to your body shape for body-contouring comfort and support. 🤗

Memory mattresses have the unique ability to conform to the sleeper's body, alleviating pressure points and tension.

This pressure relief helps your muscles relax fully.

The memory effect also makes memory foam mattresses ideal for back pain, which is why they're often recommended as orthopaedic mattresses.

Tempur's high-quality memory foam mattresses have an exceptional memory effect.

How firm are Tempur mattresses?

Tempur mattresses are available in soft to firm to better fit different types of sleepers. 😴

It's worth noting that all Tempur mattresses include Tempur memory foam, which is heat-sensitive, allowing it to adapt perfectly to different bodies.

Tempur foam is firmer when cold and softer when warmer. 🪶

levels of comfort
Memory foam is heat-sensitive, so it tends to feel softer when lying on it.

While all memory foam mattresses feel softer when warm, there are still different firmness levels.

So, which is the best Tempur mattress for you?

The One by Tempur is available in soft, medium, or firm.

Choosing the right degree of firmness is largely a matter of personal preference, though your build and sleeping style also play a part.

Firmness according to sleeping position
Your sleeping position (and weight) affect what mattress firmness you suit.

So, how does your weight and preferred sleeping position impact the level of firmness you should choose?

  • Soft mattresses are best for lighter-weight people and side sleepers.
  • Medium-firm mattresses are best for average-weight people and combination sleepers.
  • Firmer mattresses are best for heavier-weight people and pure stomach sleepers or back sleepers.

There is no "one-fits-all" rule to firmness, but you likely already have some idea of what you like or don't like.

The easiest way to see if a mattress is right for you is to try it out! 🤔

Luckily, all Tempur mattresses come with a 100-night trial, so you can test it in the comfort of your own home and exchange it if you don't love it.


Tempur mattress sizes

Tempur has one of the most impressive ranges of mattress sizes around!

Most Tempur mattresses are available in 10 sizes. 🙌

You'll find a mix of standard UK mattress sizes as well as special and European mattress sizes on Tempur's website.

These include UK sizes:

  • Tempur mattress small single: 75 x 200 cm (2'6" x 6'6”)
  • Tempur mattress single: 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
  • Tempur mattress small double: 120 x 190 cm (4' x 6'3")
  • Tempur double mattress: 135 x 190 cm (4’6” x 6’3”)
  • Tempur mattress king: 150 x 200 cm (5’ x 6’6”)
  • Tempur mattress super king: 180 x 200 cm (6’ x 6’6”)

As you can see, there are 6 UK mattress sizes, including special small single and small double sizes.

UK mattress sizes

If you need a non-UK mattress size, you're also in luck.

Tempur mattresses also come in alternative sizes, including:

  • Tempur mattress long single: 90 x 200 cm (3’ x 6'6”)
  • Tempur mattress European small double: 120 x 200 cm (4' x 6'6")
  • Tempur mattress European Queen:160 x 200 cm (5'3" x 6'6")
  • Tempur mattress special size: 135 x 200 cm (4'6" x 6'6")

Just bear in mind that if you opt for a 'special' mattress size, you may have more difficulty finding the perfect-fit bed frame and bedding. 🤦

In addition, One by Tempur doesn't follow this range of sizing and is only available in 3 sizes (double, king, and super king).


How much do Tempur mattresses cost?

While no Tempur mattresses are cheap, the exact price will vary depending on the model and size.

On average, prices range from £1,100 to over £3,000! 💷

While a Tempur mattress is a considerable investment, it is also very durable, lasting 10 years or more.

Their mattresses are far more expensive - but also better quality - than budget ones from Argos, Silentnight, or Happy Beds.


Of course, you don't necessarily have to spend Tempur prices for a mattress that lasts.

Price-performance ratio
We firmly believe that a good mattress is a long-term investment, but Tempur will sadly not suit everyone's budget.

There are many affordable and high-quality mattresses, including memory foam ones, available.

Take a look at some of our favourite alternatives below. 👇

Our favourite UK mattresses:

Tempur mattresses on sale

Tempur mattress discounts and coupon codes can help you save money when investing in a Tempur mattress.

Unfortunately, Tempur sales are very rare.

We'd recommend waiting for big sales events like Black Friday or Amazon Prime Day to find the best deals. 💸

Man sitting on coins
While Tempur doesn't regularly run big sales, you can often get up to £100 off your Tempur mattress, along with 2 free pillows!

You can also bookmark our discounts page for the latest Tempur sales and promotions.


What else does Tempur offer?

Tempur is best known for its world-renowned mattresses, but that's not all they sell.

From furniture to sleep accessories, there's something for everybody. 👏

Tempur products include:

If you have the budget, you could furnish your entire bedroom with Tempur! 🏡

Tempur delivery conditions

We recommend buying directly from Tempur or through an authorised retailer like Dreams for the best delivery experience.

Tempur delivery is free of charge within the UK mainland. 🚚

Unfortunately, delivery is slower than most other online mattress brands.

Mattresses should arrive within 14 to 28 days of ordering, while smaller items usually take 3 to 10 days, and beds can take up to 14 weeks, depending on the design requested.

On the bright side, Tempur allows customers to select a designated delivery date for larger items. 📆

Tempur sensation mattress on bed
Tempur mattresses are delivered flat, not rolled.

Unlike most online bed-in-a-box brands, Tempur mattresses are delivered flat.

By delivering its mattresses flat, Tempur avoids the damage that can occur if mattresses are left rolled and vacuum-packed for too long.


Tempur trials and guarantees

Thankfully, Tempur mattresses come with a risk-free 100-night trial and a 10-year guarantee.

This is great news, especially considering the financial investment involved in purchasing a Tempur product. 💷

Tempur trial

With the Tempur trial, you can try your Tempur mattress at home for 100 nights, allowing you plenty of time to adjust to the new sleeping surface.

If you don't love your mattress, you can return it!

There is a catch though - you'll only get the 100-day risk-free trial period if you order directly from the Tempur website! 👎

If you order via Dreams, you'll only get a 40-night sleep guarantee.

Generic trial period
Unfortunately, Tempur does not offer full refunds for products returned during their trial period.

With the Tempur trial, you can only exchange your mattress, not send it back for a full refund.

You'll also have to pay additional costs if the new mattress you've chosen is more expensive and you'll have to pay for the new delivery.

Frankly, this is a little disappointing, especially considering the price of a Tempur mattress. 👎

Other brands, like Nectar and Simba, offer superior trials, including longer trial periods and a full refund if you don't love their products!

Tempur guarantee

The Tempur guarantee covers faulty items.

We'd suggest using a mattress protector to ensure you don't void your warranty and accidentally damage the mattress.

Much like its trial period, you'll only get the full 10-year Tempur guarantee if you buy your mattress from Tempur.

Unfortunately, several customers have complained in Tempur reviews that nobody would honour the guarantee when they bought from an alternative retailer. 😡


Should you buy a Tempur mattress?

Tempur mattresses are exclusive, high-quality, memory foam-based products which promise a restful sleep.

However, for the price, we would like to see Tempur improve its trial and delivery services.

Despite the lacklustre trial and delivery, Tempur mattresses are an excellent choice if you don't have any budgetary constraints. ⭐

Alternatively, check out the Nectar memory foam mattress or Simba Hybrid if a Tempur mattress is too expensive for your budget.

Frequently asked questions

  • Why are Tempur mattresses so expensive?

    Tempur mattresses are world-renowned.

    The company first developed memory foam in mattresses, and it's still the only company in the world that uses official NASA-certified memory foam.

    These mattresses offer the best quality materials!

  • Does Tempur offer a guarantee?

    All Tempur mattresses come with a 10-year guarantee.

    This is pretty standard for most quality mattresses, though Nectar and DreamCloud offer lifetime warranties! 

    We'd recommend shopping directly from Tempur as, according to Tempur mattress reviews in the UK, several customers have had issues redeeming their warranty when they bought from an alternative retailer.

  • How long does a Tempur mattress last?

    Most quality mattresses, including the revolutionary Tempur mattresses, will last you about 8 - 12 years.

    If you take good care of your mattress, you could use it for longer.

    However, we highly recommend that you change your mattress every 10 years if you want to enjoy the optimal level of support.

    Comfort may not deteriorate noticeably, but every mattress will suffer from wear and tear that can affect levels of support and spinal alignment.

  • Where are Tempur mattresses made?

    Tempur's mattresses are made in Denmark at the Tempur production facility.

  • Understanding Tempur jargon

    Tempur uses a lot of confusing descriptions, but these are actually just their brand-specific terms for quite generic materials. 

    Check out our breakdown of what Tempur jargon really means.

    Tempur comfort material This is the revolutionary Tempur-branded memory foam.
    Tempur support material This is an additional layer that Tempur uses to support the top layer of memory foam. The support material also offers comfort and stability. 
    DuraBase technology This is an additional support layer of denser foam that provides stability and enhances mattress durability.
    Tempur climate material This material allows for good temperature regulation and balances out some of the heat-retention properties of memory foam.
    Dynamic support technology This is a layer made from memory foam that offers extra comfort and elasticity.
    Precision micro coils These are Tempur-branded pocket springs.
    Tempur extra soft material This is the Tempur-branded memory foam that's just a tad softer than the standard Tempur material.
  • Is there anything special about the Tempur mattress cover?

    Most Tempur mattresses have removable and washable covers.

    The Elite and Luxe Tempur models have QuickRefresh covers, which sounds slightly more impressive than it actually is.

    QuickRefresh only means that you can easily remove the cover from the mattress due to an integrated zipper located on the top half of the mattress.

    All Tempur mattress covers can be machine washed between 40°C to 60°C.

    Unfortunately, Tempur mattresses do not have carrying handles on their covers, which can make moving a Tempur mattress a little more challenging.

  • Where can I buy Tempur mattresses?

    While you can go order directly from the Tempur UK website, there are also several different retailers that carry the brand.

    These include:

    You can also visit designated Tempur stores throughout the UK.

  • What are common Tempur mattress problems?

    Despite generally high ratings, there are several recurring Tempur mattress review complaints.

    Some people find them uncomfortable, particularly if they've chosen a model that's too firm or too soft for them.

    People have complained about back pain as the mattress ages, becoming less supportive.

    Many people find Tempur memory foam mattresses too hot

    Overall, you can avoid many of these problems by utilising the Tempur trial, replacing your mattress every 10 years, and trying a spring-based mattress if you're a hot sleeper.

  • Are Tempur mattresses good?

    Tempur was the first company to create memory foam mattresses.

    While other brands have now created alternative memory foam mattresses, Tempur is still the number one in the industry.

    They are the only brand to use NASA-approved materials, which offer a dreamy body-hugging and pressure-relieving feel.

  • Tempur One vs. Tempur Original

    The One by Tempur and Tempur Original are both Tempur memory foam mattresses.

    But how does the Tempur One vs. Original compare?

    Well, the Tempur Original was the first Tempur mattress, while the One by Tempur is the latest release.

    Beyond this, the Tempur Original features Tempur Comfort, Tempur Support, and Tempur Durabase layers, whereas the One by Tempur is crafted only from Tempur material (Tempur's unique memory foam).

    The One by Tempur is the most affordable model and the slimmest, with a depth of just 20 cm (7.8 inches), and is only available in 3 sizes (double, king, super king).

    On the other hand, the Tempur Original is available in 3 depths (Supreme 21 cm/8.2 inches, Elite 25 cm/10 inches, Luxe 30 cm/ 11.8 inches) and an incredible 10 sizes.

  • Who is Tempur?

    Tempur is one of the world's best-known mattress providers.

    They were the first company to create a memory foam mattress and are still the only brand to use NASA-approved 'Tempur material' in their products.

    The company Tempur-Pedic was founded in 1992.

    In 2012, they merged with the Sealy Corporation to become Tempur-Sealy.
