Sleep Doctor’s Take: TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress

Combining the plush comfort of Tempur-Pedic’s signature memory foam with a responsive coil-based support system, the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid struck the right note with the side sleepers on our team. Body-conforming foam effectively isolates motion and soothes muscles and joints where side sleepers accumulate the most pressure.

Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress: An Introduction

Founded in 1992, Kentucky-based Tempur-Pedic revolutionized the mattress industry with an adaptive bed that conformed to the sleeper’s body. More than 30 years later, the company is still an industry mainstay, producing hybrid mattresses in addition to its iconic all-foam models and a wide range of bedding products.

We’ll take a look at the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid, the brand’s lowest-priced hybrid model, to see how it performs in areas like pressure relief, durability, and temperature neutrality. We’ll also cover what the mattress is made of, where to buy it, and what kinds of sleepers it’s best suited for.

How We Review

Our team uses a standardized testing methodology to evaluate every mattress we review. We examine each model across a variety of categories to give you an in-depth look at how it’s likely to perform for people of varying body weights and sleeping positions.

What’s It Like to Sleep on the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress?

The TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid combines the pressure relief of a memory foam mattress with an innerspring’s responsive coil-based support system. Featuring a new formulation of the company’s proprietary TEMPUR material, the mattress is designed to provide body-cradling comfort at an affordable price-point.

The bed’s deep contouring makes it a good option for side sleepers, while more than a thousand coils in the support core give the mattress a buoyant feel. Couples and light sleepers will likely appreciate the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid’s ability to isolate motion when one person shifts or gets out of bed.

TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Pros and Cons


  • Adaptive foam soothes pressure points
  • Limits motion transfer from co-sleepers
  • Medium (5) firmness level suits many body types and sleep styles


  • May offer insufficient support for stomach sleepers
  • Edges sink under weight
  • May be suboptimal for hot sleepers

Sleeping Positions, Body Weight, and Firmness

We rate a mattress’ firmness level on a 10-point scale, with 1 being extra soft and 10 being extra firm. Our testers rated the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid as a 5, or medium. Beds with a medium firmness have a balanced feel that gives them broader appeal than mattresses at either end of the scale.

People with different body types and preferred sleep positions have varying needs when it comes to a mattress’ firmness level. Our testing team includes individuals of different sizes and sleep styles so we can learn who responds best to each mattress.

Side Sleepers

Most of the side sleepers on our testing team loved the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid’s deep contouring. Testers under 230 pounds found the bed particularly comfortable, citing its excellent pressure relief on the hips and shoulders. Our side sleepers over 230 pounds still felt comfortable, but some preferred a firmer sleep surface.

Back Sleepers

Most of our back sleepers appreciated the mattress’ medium firmness level, reporting that it offered balanced support that kept their spine aligned. However, some back sleepers over 230 pounds felt that the mattress allowed their lower back to sink too deeply into the surface, leading to discomfort.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers, especially those over 130 pounds, tend to require a firmer sleep surface to avoid sinking excessively into the mattress and causing spinal misalignment. Our stomach sleepers under 130 pounds found the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid supportive enough to be comfortable, but it was too conforming for others.

Our Performance Ratings

Our testing team evaluates every mattress against a range of performance factors. We use a five-point scale, with 1 being poor and 5 being excellent, to rate each mattress’ performance in each category.

Pressure Relief

Rating: 4/5

Tempur-Pedic mattresses have a reputation for offering substantial pressure relief, and the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid is no different. The bed’s cushiony comfort system made from responsive TEMPUR material was especially popular with the side sleepers under 230 pounds on our team, who praised its deep contouring.

Temperature Neutrality

Rating: 2/5

Memory foam has a tendency to draw in and retain body heat, and close contouring can leave sleepers feeling hot. Although this model’s cover is designed to wick away moisture and increase breathability, the cover alone wasn’t enough to keep some of our hot sleepers cool.

Motion Isolation

Rating: 4/5

All-foam mattresses are usually good at absorbing motion, letting individuals move around without disturbing bed partners. Even though coils can sometimes amplify vibrations, the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid’s plush comfort layers do a good job of reducing motion transfer, making this mattress a great option for light sleepers and couples.   

Edge Support

Rating: 3/5

Beds with strong edge support have reinforced perimeters to prevent sagging and increase the usable surface of the mattress. People who like to sit on the edge of their bed typically require good edge support. This model benefits from both a coil-based support system and a hard polyfoam base, which give it decent edge support despite its softer foam layers.


Rating: 4/5

Although foam tends to degrade faster than other mattress materials, this model uses high-quality TEMPUR memory foam, which should hold up well over time. Metal coils in the support core add additional strength and durability, helping to resist surface impressions and sagging. 

Many factors impact a mattress’ lifespan, including how often it’s used and how it’s cleaned. With proper use, we think this hybrid may last longer than seven years before it needs to be replaced. 

Ease of Movement

Rating: 3/5

Beds with heavy contouring can sometimes leave sleepers feeling as if they’re sinking into the mattress. Most of our testers were able to move about comfortably on this bed thanks to its coil-based support core, which balances the mattress’ plush comfort system with just enough responsiveness to prevent excessive sinkage.


Rating: 3/5

The best mattresses for sex generally combine strong responsiveness and edge support with excellent temperature regulation and ease of movement. While the presence of coils in the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid’s support core aids with responsiveness, it still earned just average marks in ease of movement and edge support, with our testers deeming it below average in temperature neutrality. If this category is a priority, a hybrid without conforming memory foam may be a better option.


Rating: 3/5

Mattresses that contain foam often give off a mild chemical odor during unboxing. Called off-gassing, this smell is a manufacturing byproduct that is considered harmless in small quantities. Some people find off-gassing unpleasant or irritating. Like many mattresses containing foam layers, the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid produces some mild off-gassing. Team members noted that it dissipated quickly after they decompressed the mattress and let it air out. 

What Is the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress Made Of?

The TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress has a breathable cover made from a polyester blend. Designed to wick away moisture, the stretchy material wraps around the bed’s top layers to keep the sleep surface cool.

The mattress’ comfort layers feature a newer formulation of the company’s proprietary TEMPUR material. Originally developed to cushion astronauts during space flight, this unique memory foam softens in response to heat and conforms to the sleeper’s body. Underneath, a firmer layer of TEMPUR material provides more adaptive support.

Inside the support core, coils add responsiveness, pressure relief, and support. Finally, a firm polyfoam layer bolsters the springs and provides the mattress with a strong base.

Which Tempur-Pedic Mattress Is Right for You?

Our team found that the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid is best suited to side sleepers and people under 230 pounds. If this model isn’t for you, one of the company’s other mattresses might be a better fit.

The TEMPUR-ProAdapt, TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt, and TEMPUR-LuxeBreeze all come in multiple firmness levels, including firm (7) options that are better suited to stomach sleepers and people over 230 pounds. Hot sleepers may want to consider the hybrid version of the TEMPUR-ProBreeze or the TEMPUR-LuxeBreeze’s firm option, which our testers determined had the best temperature regulation of the brand’s various models.

The TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid is an upgraded version of the brand’s lowest-priced model, the all-foam TEMPUR-Cloud Mattress. Similarly, many of Tempur-Pedic’s classic foam mattresses also come in hybrid options.

TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress FAQ

Why Are Tempur-Pedic Mattresses So Popular?

Tempur-Pedic was the first U.S. mattress company to identify the commercial potential of memory foam. At a time when traditional innerspring mattresses were the norm, Tempur-Pedic offered a unique alternative, and an innovative marketing campaign solidified its position as an industry leader. Today, the company has a strong online presence that complements its ubiquitous offerings at brick-and-mortar mattress stores across the country.

Is the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Good for Pain Relief?

Our testing team found that the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid offers very good pressure relief, though its mid-range firmness level is better suited for certain types of sleepers. Side sleepers were most impressed with the mattress, though back and stomach sleepers under 130 pounds also liked its combination of pressure-relieving memory foam and supportive coils.

What Kind of Foundation Is Needed for the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid?

This model is compatible with flat foundations, platform foundations with slats no more than 4 inches apart, and adjustable power bases. It does not work with box springs and cannot be placed directly on the floor without voiding the warranty.

Are Tempur-Pedic Mattresses Hot?

Although individual preferences vary, many members of our testing team found that the highly conforming foam layers in the TEMPUR-Cloud Hybrid Mattress reduced air circulation around the body. This was especially true for sleepers over 130 pounds, who reported that the mattress trapped body heat.
