Does the Cloud Select mattress model have the Tempur cooling feature?

The Cloud Select was recently replaced with the Cloud Prima which has the SmartClimate. If you go into a store that carries Tempurs, you can unzip one of the other beds like the Cloud Supreme or Cloud Elite to feel the SmartClimate layer. It feels really cool to touch. The admin pointed out the Breeze models which will sleep very cool for hours.

Generally speaking, the Tempur models that have the cooling feature are the ones that have the word "Breeze" in their name. Here are those 3 models:

These recent changes in Tempurpedic's lineup represent a fundamental shift in their marketing, addressing the heat issue. It's no secret that these beds sleep hot. While adding a cooling fabric will help, it is the dense foam that prevents the core of the bed from allowing proper air flow. Couple with the mandatory box spring they sell, which is a solid MDF box, it further exacerbates the heat issue, as the solid box cuts off any air flow under the mattress as well.

If you do a bit of research, you will find there are other foam products on the market using lesser dense foams which translates to more breathable space in the foam itself, and also brands using gel additives to add cooling to the bed.

Good luck

Hi Joe -- do you know of any independent evidence which confirms that lower density memory foam really sleeps cooler? It's certainly a plausible premise, but I could also imagine that it might not make a material difference since even lower density memory foam would still have the problem that with more conforming and sinking in, less of your body's surface area is exposed to the air. Also, since the user asked about Tempur specifically, it's worth adding that the higher density of their memory foam also translates to more longevity, which is one reason for Tempur's very good reputation.
