Summary: Is the Tempur-LUXEbreeze a Good Mattress?

Memory foam mattresses have a reputation problem that isn't unfounded. Because of their hallmark characteristic--that slow sinking-into-the-mattress feeling--memory foam gives you a sensation of being hugged or cradled by your mattress, an aspect many mattress shoppers really enjoy. At the same time, however, less of your body is exposed to the air. And foam, by its very nature, doesn't allow for much airflow. The net result? Sleeping on memory foam can feel hot.

Tempur-Pedic has taken aim squarely at solving this issue with the LUXEbreeze mattress. It has several features, materials, and construction techniques that in our view, work together to make a real difference. In our testing, we definitely noticed that mattress kept us feeling cooler, especially in the first 10-15 minutes in bed, when you are in the process of falling asleep.

The LUXEbreeze comes in Firm and Soft versions. Tempur-pedic defines softness a bit differently than we do; their scale relates more to cushioning depth, and how deeply you sink into the bed rather than how soft or firm it feels when you get into bed.

GoodBed, for our ratings, separates those two aspects, so you'll see our rating for softness -- that initial firmness you feel -- but we separately rate cushioning depth, how deeply you sink into the bed. On our softness scale, both of the LUXEbreeze mattress are firm; Tempur-Pedic's Firm equates to our Extra Firm, while the LUXEbreeze Soft, on our scale, is a Firm.

For this review, we specifically tested the Firm version, though we do make some comments about the Soft version.

Highlights in our performance testing included excellent motion isolation -- helpful if you are easily disturbed by a partner's movements. The LUXEbreeze also works very well on an adjustable base. But the real story is the bed's cooling features, which we would call best-in-class.

 

Bottom Line: Who is the Best Match for a Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze mattress?

BEST if you:

  • Are a side or back sleeper
  • Need a mattress with excellent pressure relief
  • Are concerned about sleeping hot
  • Are easily disturbed by a partner's movements

NOT IDEAL if you:

  • Are a stomach sleeper
  • Need the best edge support
  • Want more of a budget mattress

Materials & Construction

What's in a Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze Mattress?

Overall, we classify the LUXebreeze Firm mattress as a "Memory Foam over Foam" construction type. This mattress is 13" tall and is comprised of 4 layers, listed from top to bottom:

  • 1" Tempur-CM+ memory foam, 5-lb. density with phase-change material
  • 3" Tempur-APR memory foam, 5-lb. density, with pin-core holes
  • 3" open-cell transition foam, 1.6-lb. density
  • 6" convoluted base foam

The Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze Firm includes 4" of premium comfort materials. At the top is Tempur-Pedic's Tempur-CM+ memory foam, a very soft foam with a lot of slow memory feel. The foam is enhanced with flecks of phase-change material. These are high density particles that stay cooler longer until your body warms them. This is a very high quality foam, and while we've seen some manufacturers use a solid sheet of phase-change material on top of their foam, Tempur-Pedic is more subtle, infusing the foam but also allowing for airflow.

Next is the company's Tempur-APR memory foam, another soft foam with a lot of that slow memory feel. This foam has holes drilled straight through the foam, creating channels for air flow to help direct warm air away from the body.

The lower base foam also has a cooling feature, as it has deep channels carved into it for air flow, similar to what you might recall as egg-crate foam.


 

Cover

The cover of the Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze Firm mattress is soft and stretchy. It's woven with high-density yarns that give it a coolness to the touch.

 

Comfort & Feel

There are three aspects that make up our assessment of comfort and feel. We call these "preference-based characteristics" because no rating here is better or worse – rather, the attributes that are most desirable to you will be determined solely by your personal preferences. We apply the same classification standards to each mattress so you can more easily compare apples to apples.

Softness ( what’s this )

Keep in mind that what mattress companies call “firm” or “soft” is a purely a preference. All mattresses should be supportive and promote healthy spinal alignment. Whether a mattress is fluffy and squishy (what mattress companies call soft or plush), or less so (what companies call firm), is purely down to your personal needs and preferences.

Tempur-Pedic uses their firmness classifications differently than we do. They use it to indicate cushioning, and how deeply you sink into the mattress, while we use it more as an indication of how the mattress feels right away at the top.

The company calls this mattress a Firm, but we found it to be more of an Extra Firm on our scale. Note that the Soft version of this mattress is also a Firm on our scale, but you do sink in more deeply, which accounts for Tempur-Pedic's "soft" classification.

Not sure what softness is best for you? Take our Mattress Match Quiz and find out.

Softness Level
(1=Least Soft, 9=Most Soft)
2 Extra Firm

 

Cushioning Depth ( what’s this )

Cushioning depth refers to how deeply you sink into a mattress, and how closely it conforms to your body's curves. Some people really enjoy sinking in a lot, and like the feeling of being hugged or cradled. Others prefer more of a floating feeling you get from shallower cushioning, where you're not sleeping "in" your mattress as much as on it.

The LUXEbreeze Firm, despite it's initial firmness, allows for a lot more than average of that "sink" quality. It hugs your curves as your body warms the bed. It's a feeling of being "hugged" or cradled by your mattress. We reviewed the Firm version, but we expect the Soft version to have an even more pronounced amount of memory feel.

Cushioning Depth
(1=Shallowest, 9=Deepest)
7 More than average cushioning

 

Responsiveness ( what's this )

We look at responsiveness in two ways. The first is memory feel; that's the ooey-gooey melty feeling that memory feel imparts. Some mattresses have "fast" memory foam, meaning you don't get as much of that slow/melting feeling. Instead, the foam springs back rather quickly. On the other end, "slow" memory foam lets you gradually sink deeper and deeper into the mattress as your body warms the warm. Then when you get up, there's a visible impression where your body was, which slowly puffs up and back into shape.

The Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze Firm is more like the latter; it has much more of that melting/sinking aspect.

We also look at responsiveness in terms of bounce. All-foam mattresses typically do not have much of is, as foam has such a dampening effect on movement. Mattresses with slow memory foam tend to have even less bounce, and the LUXEbreeze Firm fits into that category.

You can see bounce demonstrated in our video when we toss our bowling ball on the Titan mattress; it barely moves. The same is true when our tester plops his whole weight on the bed. That pin is rock steady.

Memory Feel
(1=Least, 9=Most)
7 Lots of memory feel
Bounce
(1=Least, 9=Most)
2

No bounce


Back Support & Pressure Relief

The two things that you should always be sure to get from your mattress are spinal alignment (commonly thought of as "back support") and pressure relief. Unfortunately, no mattress will deliver these two things equally well for all sleepers. In particular, spinal alignment and pressure relief capabilities will vary across sleepers with different weights, body shapes, and sleep positions. To help you determine how this mattress will perform for you, we break down our spinal alignment and pressure relief assessments by sleeper type.

The Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze Firm is a very firm mattress; while the memory foam allows your body to sink a lot, the inherent firmness of the mattress ensures that the mattress doesn't really feel squishy underneath you.

The first job of any mattress is to hold your spine in alignment, and that will vary depending on where you stop sinking in the LUXEbreeze.

Spinal Alignment

The key to good back support is maintaining proper spinal alignment while you sleep. This means that the mattress should hold your spine in roughly the same position it's in when you're standing. The ability of a given mattress to do this will generally depend on your weight, sleep position, and body shape.

Here is how we break down the spinal alignment of the LUXEbreeze Firm mattress:

Weight Range Back Sleepers Side Sleepers Stomach Sleepers
Lighter <150 lb 9 7 7
Average 150 to 200 lb 9 8 6
Above Average 200 to 250 lb 8 9 5
Heavier >250 lb 7 9 4

 

Back Sleepers:

We thought that most back sleepers would feel well supported on the LUXEbreeze Firm. If there's an exception, it might be those on the heavy end of the scale, whose hips might sink too deeply into the mattress, especially since there are no springs in this bed to provide opposition. If hips sink too deeply, the back arches too much and the spine isn't aligned. But we don't think most back sleepers will have this issue.

Side Sleepers:

We found spinal alignment for side sleepers to also be very good. Those at the very light end of the scale might instead opt for the Soft version. In generally, Tempur-Pedic really excels in terms of side sleeping and pressure relief.

Stomach Sleepers:

Achieving good spinal alignment for stomach sleepers can often be trickier as the hips can tend to sink down too far with some mattresses. We did think this would be an issue for most stomach sleepers on the LUXEbreeze Firm. Lighter stomach sleepers might be fine. We don't think any side sleepers should go for the Soft version.

Pressure Relief

When a mattress pushes back against your body with too much force in a concentrated area, the result can be pain, soreness, loss of circulation, excessive tossing, and other problems. In general, such "pressure points" are of greatest concern for side sleepers, since that's the position in which your body's weight is distributed over the smallest surface area. To find the right mattress for your needs, keep in mind that the pressure-relieving capabilities of any given mattress will vary depending on the sleeper. Factors like your weight and body shape (e.g., broader shoulders and/or hips) will determine how far you sink into the mattress, and the pressure relief offered by that mattress will vary widely at different depths.

Here's how we sized up the pressure relief of the LUXEbreeze Firm mattress:

Weight Range Typical Curves Extra Curvy
Lighter <150 lb 7 6
Average 150 to 200 lb 8 7
Above Average 200 to 250 lb 8 8
Heavier >250 lb 8 8

 

Overall, we found the pressure relief offered by the LUXEbreeze Firm mattress to be very good, and a real highlight of the bed. We did think that lighter sleepers would get better pressure relief on the Soft version, but everyone else should get very good pressure relief.

 

Other Features

Beyond the preference-based characteristics of comfort and feel, and the body matching for spinal alignment and pressure relief, a mattress will have a number of other attributes that can make it a better or worse choice for you. We call these "priority-based characteristics" because they are areas in which a mattress can be better or worse, but that will have differing amounts of importance to each sleeper. So, determining how much importance to give to these features will be entirely a matter of your own personal priorities. As always, we apply the same ratings standards to each mattress so you can more easily compare apples to apples.

 

Motion Isolation ( what’s this )

With a bowling pin standing upright on the LUXEbreeze Firm bed, we tested motion isolation by dropping a 16-lb. bowling ball on it, as well as the full weight of our 200-lb. tester. In both tests, the bowling pin barely moved at all.

We think this mattress would be a great choice for those who are easily disturbed by a partner's movements in bed.

Motion Isolation Rating
9 /10 Excellent

 

Temperature ( what’s this )

If you are a “hot” sleeper, or perhaps a woman who experiences hot flashes, how a mattress affects your body temperature may be a concern. I

All--foam mattresses, and especially memory foam mattresses, tend not to be the best in this department. Tempur-pedic has taken aim squarely at this issue and has introduced many features intended to combat sleeping hot. Every layer and material in the mattress includes some kind of cooling feature.

The top memory foam includes flecks of phase-change material, particles that stay solid until your body eventually warms them. This helps you stay cool while you are falling asleep. The cover includes high-density fibers, which give it a coolness to the touch, also helpful while falling asleep.

To help keep you cooler overnight, several features improve airflow, channeling warm air away from the body and allowing cooler air to replace it.

The Tempur-APR foam, the second layer of memory foam, has holes drilled right through it, giving air a place to travel. The third transition foam layer is an open-cell foam, meaning there are visible spaces between the fibers of the foam, again allowing for air to flow through it. And lastly, the support foam is convoluted, with channels carved into it allowing for more air flow.

We found the science behind all of these features very persuasive and substantial, and we felt this mattress feels noticeably cooler, even cooler than most mattresses of any type (including innerspring mattresses, which are typically coolest). We especially noticed the cooling effects in the first 10-15 minutes, the time during which you are trying to fall asleep. We were very impressed with this mattress's cooling features, and have given it the highest rating we've given any all-foam mattress.

Stays "Cool" Rating
8 /10 Very good

 

Edge Support ( what’s this )

If you like to sit on the edge of your mattress, or if you tend to sleep right on the edge of your mattress, you want a model that has good integrity and stability around the edges.

Edge support isn't usually a strength of all-foam mattresses, and that's no exception here.

Especially when laying right on the side, our tester felt himself starting to melt and lean. He never felt like he was going to fall out, but if you tend to sleep right on the edge, this might not be the best mattress for you.
Edge Support Rating
 5 /10 Okay

Ease of Repositioning ( what’s this )

For those with joint and mobility issues, ease of movement -- changing positions and getting in and out of bed -- is a priority.

This is a mattress with a lot of squishy memory foam, and while people that don't have a particular mobility problem should be fine, for those with a known issue, movement is not as easy as it might be with a mattress that has less memory foam.

Repositioning Rating
5 /10 Okay

 

Green Features ( what’s this )

For mattress shoppers concerned with the use of natural materials, sustainable manufacturing practices or the like, we offer our subjective evaluation of any efforts taken by the company to make the mattress more green, healthy, or safe. 

The Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze mattress does not use natural materials. The foams used in the bed are petroleum based, but the foams are certified to the CertiPUR-US standard, which verifies that a material has low VOC off-gassing as well as a lack of chemicals and other substances regulated by the CPSC.

Green Rating
5/10 Okay

 

Adjustable Base Compatibility ( what’s this )

We tested the LUXEbreeze mattress on the same adjustable base we use with all the mattresses we evaluate. The mattress is certainly safe to use on an adjustable base - doing so will not damage the mattress in any way.

We always look at conformance, or how well the mattress adjusts to the base when it's raised and bent into a fully articulated position. The mattress performed very well in this respect.

We also take a look at what the cover does when the mattress is bent. Some beds with very thick covers end up with a lot of bunched-up fabric when in a bent position. We had no issues with the LUXEbreeze Firm in any respect, and found it to be an excellent choice with an adjustable base.
Adjustable Base Use Rating
9/10 Excellent

 

Price, Value, Durability

What It Costs

Prices shown are list prices. Remember that GoodBed keeps our site current with the best available discounts on online mattresses, many of which are exclusive discounts for our readers.

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are available nationwide in mattress stores, and directly through the Tempur-Pedic website. See their store locator for a retailer near you.

 

What Are You Getting?

The Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze Firm is a 13" mattress with a total of 4" inches of premium comfort material. It is an all-foam bed with numerous and notable cooling features that we would call best-in-class.

 

How Long Will the LUXEbreeze Mattress Last?

When examining a mattress we always look for red flags; materials or construction that might be a weak link, might break down earlier than expected or cause other durability issues.

The top two memory foams in this mattress are best-in-class, and very high quality with a 5-lb. density (corresponding to the weight of the material per square foot).

If we had any concern, it would be the lower two foams, which are of much lower density. The biggest durability concern for most people is body impressions -- indentations that never come back to shape after you get out of bed. Tempur-Pedic has an industry-leading guarantee in this respect. If a mattress develops an impression greater than 3/4", it falls under the 10-year warranty. We think that's excellent assurance.

 

Overall Value

There's no way around it: the Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze is an expensive mattress. But for a subset of folks that have major concerns about sleeping hot, yet want the pressure relief and conformance of memory foam, we do think that the LUXEbreeze is in a class by itself right now.

It's obviously not a budget mattress, but for those with these specific needs and concerns, we do think it is a good value.

Value Rating
7 /10 Good

 


Other Factors to Consider

Delivery

  • Free white glove delivery if ordered directly

The LUXEbreeze is available from many retailers who will have differing delivery policies. If you order directly from Tempur-Pedic, free white-glove delivery is included, meaning the company will take the mattress into your home, place it where you want it, and remove all packaging.

 

Returns

  • 90-day trial period
  • Refund less shipping charges

When ordering directly, Tempur-Pedic offers a 90-day trial period, and asks that you try the mattress for at least 30 nights. If you aren't comfortable, the company will work with you to solve your concerns. If you still don't want the mattress within 90 days, it may be returned for a full refund less shipping charges, which will vary depending on where you live.

 

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. Tempur-Pedic covers indentations that meet or exceed 3/4", which is just about the best impression warranty out there. Practically speaking, that means any softening or sagging would need to be at least that deep before the warranty would offer you protection.

Again, however, if you need to return a mattress under warranty, you may be liable for shipping charges.

The warranty period is 10 years, and it's not pro-rated -- the full warranty applies for the entire 10 years of non-transferable ownership.

Bottom Line: Is the LUXEbreeze Firm Mattress Right for You?
