Tempur-ProAdapt Mattress

Overview: Tempur-ProAdapt Mattress Line

New for 2018, Tempur-pedic's Tempur-ProAdapt mattresses feature a new cooling cover that's removable and machine washable, along with a new memory material called Tempur-APR that the company says is meant to improve pressure relief. The ProAdapt mattresses are sisters to the less expensive Tempur-Adapt mattresses, which share the same cooling cover, but the cover is not removable, and the Adapt does not use the new foam. Compared to the Tempur-Adapt, we found the ProAdapt models to offer greater conformance and cushioning.

New Cooling Cover

The use of cooling materials is a new-ish trend among mattresses. Typically, we see "phase change" materials included as a coating on a mattress's cover that makes it feel cool to the touch. Tempur-Pedic takes a different approach with the new covers on the Tempur-Adapt and Tempur-ProAdapt mattresses. 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 compared to Tempur-Pedic's previous mattress covers, it feels noticeably cool to the touch.

The Tempur-Adapt and Tempur-ProAdapt lines both use the cooling cover. On the ProAdapt mattresses, the cover zips off and can be machine washed, while it is non-removable on the Tempur-Adapt.

Materials and Construction

Tempur-Pedic, of course, is known for memory foam. Both the Tempur-Adapt and Tempur-ProAdapt mattress lines feature a top comfort layer of the company's Tempur-ES foam which it's been using in its other mattresses. This is a soft, slow responding foam that has plenty of that memory feel.

Under the Tempur-ES foam, however, the ProAdapt mattresses feature a new memory material, called Tempur-APR, meant to stand for "advanced pressure relief." As you can see in the image below, it's a very dense, slow-responding memory foam, even slower responding than the top ES foam.

While we can't comment on specific pressure relieving qualities of the Tempur-APR foam, we did note some differences compared to the Tempur-Adapt, which doesn't contain the new foam. We found conformance to be greater on all of the ProAdapt models, meaning that that the mattress adapts to the contours of your body very closely, especially as the foams warm to your body. At the same time, there's still firm support further down.

We most noticed the extra pressure relieving qualities in the ProAdapt Soft, which has the deepest cushioning and conformance.

For the Firm, Medium and Soft versions of the ProAdapt mattress, a third layer of support foam is under the ES and APR foams. For the Medium Hybrid, a pocketed coil unit replaces the support foam.

Softness and Feel

There are four mattress choices in the Tempur-Adapt line. Our own assessment of their softness varies from what the company calls them.

Tempur-ProAdapt Firm

We would call the Firm version more of an Extra Firm on our scale. Even so, there's still plenty of softness on top, and the same contouring and conformance to curves we noticed in all of the Tempur-ProAdapt mattresses.

Tempur-ProAdapt Medium

We found the Medium version to be more of a Firm on our scale, and compared to the company's Firm version, progressively more cushioning and conformance.

Tempur-ProAdapt Medium Hybrid

The Medium Hybrid ProAdapt mattress has a support layer of pocketed coils as opposed to foam. That will give this model more bounce than the all-foam versions. We felt that the Medium Hybrid was a good bit softer than the all-foam medium, calling it a true Medium on our scale.

Tempur-ProAdapt Soft

We would call the ProAdapt Soft a Medium Soft on our scale. It has the deepest cushioning of the four mattresses, and we noticed the pressure relief potential the most in this version.

Delivery, Returns, & Warranty

Tempur-Pedic mattresses are available in many stores, whose delivery and return policies will vary.

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 mattresses is generally between ¾” and 1.5”. 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.
