Tempur-Breeze Mattresses: Shared Features

Tempur-pedic's Tempur-Breeze collection of mattresses has been revamped for 2019-2020, and we are impressed with its innovations intended to help counter the biggest complaint against memory foam mattresses--that they 'sleep hot.'

There are four mattresses in the line, separated into the ProBreeze and LuxeBreeze series.

Tempur-Pedic TCM Plus Memory Foam


All of the Tempur-Breeze models use Tempur-Pedic's TCM (Tempur Climate Material) Plus memory foam. This foam has a classic slow, melting-into-the-bed memory foam feel, yet has a more open-cell construction intended to improve air flow. As you can see below, the TCM foam on the right visibly has more nooks and crannies than the other Tempur-Pedic memory foam next to it. More air can pass through the TCM foam because of those extra nooks and crannies.


The TCM memory foam also includes improved phase change material. Put simply, these are small wax beads with a plastic coating that are applied to a surface (in this case, foam). That makes the surface cool to the touch when it's 'cold' -- when no one is in the bed, for instance. Then when you get into bed, it takes a while for your body to warm the beads and melt the wax. The idea is that the bed retains its cool feeling long enough for you to get to sleep.

According to Tempur-Pedic's testing, the phase change material and the TCM Plus foam keep the bed cool 1.5 times longer (for ProBreeze models) than it's non-cooling mattresses, and 2 times longer for the LuxeBreeze models, which include more of the phase-change beads.

Cooling Cover

Tempur-Pedic uses phase-change beads on its TCM foam. We see other manufacturers using a similar technique in the cover of a mattress, but Tempur-Pedic is using a very different approach to its cooling mattress covers.

Woven into the fabric are special high-density fibers that by their very nature feel cool to the touch. (Think about how a high density material like marble feels cooler than low-density material like wood.). Since the fiber is woven in, it can't wash off or diminish over time. It's an innovative approach, and it feels noticeably cool to the touch.

Tempur-Pedic uses this cooling cover on all four Breeze models, but the LuxeBreeze versions use a higher percentage of it. The company estimates that the ProBreeze mattresses feel 5% more cool to the touch than the company's mattresses that don't use the cooling cover. We had a hard time noticing a lot of difference when we compared the two. However, we noticed a marked difference between the non-cooling cover and the cover on the LuxeBreeze mattresses, which the company says feel 30% cooler to the touch.

The cooling cover on all of the Tempur-Breeze models zips off and can be machine washed. These are tight-top covers, without quilting or anything between the cooling cover and the top TCM Plus memory foam with its cooling features.

Tempur-ProBreeze

There are two mattress choices in the Tempur-ProBreeze line. Both have identical materials in the top layers of memory foam. One has a foam support layer while the other uses a pocketed coil unit. We thought they both had very similar feels. The principle difference is that the hybrid version has some bounce, while the all-foam version has almost none.

Our own assessment of their softness varies slightly from what the company calls them.

Tempur-ProBreeze Medium

We would call the Medium version a Firm on our scale. Even so, there's still plenty of softness on top, and cushioning depth (how deeply you sink in) is deeper than average.

Tempur-ProBreeze Medium Hybrid

We would call the Tempur-ProBreeze Hybrid a Firm as well on our scale. It has very similar cushioning and feel as the all-foam version.


 

Tempur-LuxeBreeze

There are two mattress choices in the Tempur-LuxeBreeze line. Both are all-foam beds, and they have some additional features compared to the less expensive ProBreeze models.

The two mattresses in the LuxeBreeze series include a higher percentage of high-density yarns in the cooling cover; the company says this makes it 25% more cool to the touch compared to the ProBreeze models.

The LuxeBreeze also uses Tempur's APR (Advance Pressure Relief) foam as the second layer of memory foam, and this layer is pierced with pin-core holes, allowing air to circulate between the layers more freely. The company also says this helps the phase-change material in the top layer stay cool longer.

Our own assessment of their softness varies slightly from what the company calls them.

Tempur-LuxeBreeze Firm

We would call the Firm version an Extra Firm on our scale. As with the ProBreeze models, even though this mattress has a firm feel, there's still  softness on top, and cushioning depth is deeper than average (though less deep than the Soft version or either of the ProBreeze models.

Tempur-LuxeBreeze Soft

We would call the Tempur-LuxeBreeze Soft a Firm on our scale. It does have lots of softness on top, but from a support standpoint, this is still a firm bed, not a soft and squishy mattress.


Other Factors to Consider

Delivery

  • Free white-glove delivery

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are available in many stores, whose delivery and return policies will vary. For orders placed online directly through Tempur-Pedic, free white-glove delivery is included, meaning movers will unpack and set up the mattress in the room of your choice, and removing any packaging materials.

Returns

  • 90-night trial period
  • Full refund less $175 pickup fee

For orders placed online, Tempur-Pedic offers a 90-night trial period, with at least a 30 day required trial. Should you wish to return the mattress, a $175 return pickup and shipping fee will apply.

Warranty

  • Warranty Length: 10 years
  • Indentation Coverage: 3/4” and above

One of the biggest, if not THE biggest complaints about any mattress from consumers regards body impressions—the inability of a mattress to spring back, eventually creating a low spot/sinkhole in the mattress. As such, mattress warranties all contain a term defining how big a sag or ‘body impression’ (measured when no one is on the mattress) is considered a defect, and thus covered under the warranty. The industry standard for foam mattresses is generally between ¾” and 1”. Tempur-Pedic has chosen to cover indentations that meet or exceed 3/4”. Practically speaking, that means any softening or sagging would need to be at least that deep before the warranty would offer you protection.
