Sleep Doctor’s Take: Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress is a luxurious and durable all-foam bed available in two firmness options to suit nearly any body type and sleep position. With great motion isolation and split king options to combine two firmness levels, this mattress is ideal for couples with different sleep needs who want a high-end mattress.

Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress: An Introduction

Tempur-Pedic is known for the signature pressure relief of their memory foam mattress designs. The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt is one of the brand’s luxury models, a high-end all-foam bed with a 13-inch profile. Available in both soft (3) and firm (7) models, nearly anyone can find the firmness level that best suits their needs and preferences.

We take a closer look at both models of the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt, explore their construction, and discuss how each model performed in our team’s structured testing process. We also cover who it’s best for and provide guidance on how and where to buy it.

How we review

Our dedicated team of experts tests and rates each mattress we review. We utilize our distinctive testing methodology to scrutinize each mattress across a spectrum of categories. To help you choose the right mattress, we aim to incorporate the needs of sleepers of varying body weights and sleeping positions.

What’s It Like to Sleep On the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt?

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress sleeps like a luxury memory foam mattress. Right away you’ll notice the brand’s signature memory foam layers as they gently conform to your body. 

The mattress comes in two firmness options with different feels. The soft (3) option offers a more plush, pressure-relieving feeling that you can sink into more deeply, though it’s softer memory foam makes it a bit harder to move around on. The firm (7) option conforms significantly less while still maintaining the contouring properties of memory foam.

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt, like all mattresses, has its pros and cons that need careful consideration when selecting a mattress that feels right for you.

Pros

  • Very good motion isolation for those who share a bed
  • Soft model offers great pressure relief
  • Not overly heat-trapping for a foam mattress

Cons

  • Not available in twin or full sizes
  • Initial off-gassing may bother some shoppers
  • Soft model has limited edge support

Sleeping Positions, Body Weight, and Firmness

Our team evaluated both models of the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt, rating them as a soft (3) and firm (7) on our 10-point firmness scale. People with different body weights and habitual sleep positions have different needs in a mattress, and we found that most sleepers should be able to find the right blend of comfort and support on one of the two available firmness options.

Most sleepers on our team preferred the firm model, noting that it was particularly well suited for back and stomach sleepers between 130 and 230 pounds, as well as for side sleepers over 230 pounds.

The soft version appealed to a more targeted group of testers. We found that the soft model was sufficiently plush for side sleepers under 130 pounds. Back sleepers under 130 pounds liked both models, though some preferred the soft model due to its extra pressure relief.

Side Sleepers

Side sleepers generally prefer a mattress on the softer side, which helps to cushion the shoulders and hips and keep the spine in alignment. The soft model was ideal for the side sleepers below 130 pounds on our team. Our testers over 130 pounds found it a bit too soft, preferring the increased support found in the firm model.

Back Sleepers

Back sleepers need a somewhat firmer mattress to keep the spine aligned. Our tests found that the firm model was the better choice for most sleepers, especially for those between 130 and 230 pounds. Those under 130 pounds may prefer the soft option if they like more pressure relief or the firm option if they appreciate more support.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers tend to want the most firmness to support their midsection, and we found that the firm model was the best option for stomach sleepers of any body weight. A mattress that is too soft can put pressure on a stomach sleeper’s lower back.

Our Performance Ratings

Our evaluators put each mattress through the paces to evaluate performance characteristics on a five-point scale, from poor (1) to excellent (5).

Pressure Relief

Rating: 3/5 Firm, 4/5 Soft

Tempur-Pedic is well known for its pressure relieving memory foams, and our team found that both models performed relatively well in this category. Our testers noted that the soft model comfortably adjusted to the body and relieved pressure in key areas, hence the higher rating. The firm model also provided pressure relief, but its sturdier foams offered less contouring around the shoulders, hips, and back, areas in which pressure tends to build up.

Temperature Neutrality

Rating: 3/5

A temperature-neutral mattress is an important consideration for those who sleep hot or live in humid environments. It can be challenging to find this trait among mattresses that use memory foam, which conforms closely and limits air flow around the body. To combat this tendency, Tempur-Pedic uses open-cell foams, which are intended to enhance their breathability. Overall, our team found that the temperature neutrality of the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt is on par with other all-foam mattresses.

Motion Isolation

Rating: 4/5

The all-foam design of TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt offers very good motion isolation, regardless of which model you choose. The mattress effectively absorbed movement during each of our tests, reducing disturbances that could be caused by a partner’s tossing and turning during the night. This feature is particularly beneficial for light sleepers and couples.

Edge Support

Rating: 3/5 Firm, 2/5 Soft

Edge support is a measure of how well a mattress supports weight along its perimeter. As is typical of an all-foam mattress design, the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt did not excel in this category, though the edges of the firm model did feel more stable during our tests.

Durability

Rating: 4/5

All-foam mattresses are at risk of premature softening and body impressions unless high-quality materials are used. Our evaluators noted that TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt uses quality foams, leading us to believe the mattress will hold up well against sagging and indentations over the years. We think this mattress should last longer than the average for all-foam models, which is six to seven years.

Ease of Movement

Rating: 3/5 Firm, 2/5 Soft

Ease of movement can be a challenge for beds that use soft memory foams, as sinking into the bed can make it more challenging to change position or crawl across its surface. Our testers found the firm model offered better ease of movement due to its less conforming nature. The soft model, while very comfortable, conforms more closely to the body and restricted movement for our testers, making it slightly harder for them to change positions.

Sex

Rating: 2/5

To evaluate a mattress for this category, our team considers aspects of a bed’s performance that are beneficial during sex, like ease of movement, temperature neutrality, and edge support. While the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt provides comfort and pressure relief, it lacks the springiness that couples often prefer during sex. Both models don’t offer much bounce due to their all-foam construction, and the more conforming nature of the foam can inhibit easy movement.

Off-Gassing

Rating: 2/5

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt produced higher than average off-gassing during our tests. Upon unboxing, sleepers may notice an initial odor due to the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). However, the odor typically dissipates within a few days, particularly if the mattress is left to air out in a well-ventilated room.

What Is the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress Made Of?

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt mattress begins with a polyblend cover that can be removed and machine washed. Below the cover, the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt uses more of the brand’s signature TEMPUR memory foam than any other mattress in the TEMPUR-Adapt collection.

A layer of Original TEMPUR or TEMPUR-ES material, depending on the chosen firmness level, sits atop a layer of TEMPUR-APR+ memory foam. TEMPUR-APR+ is the brand’s most luxurious foam, designed to be even more conforming than other TEMPUR foams. 

Both comfort layers rest on a layer of dense polyfoam, engineered to give the mattress structure and durability. All the foams are certified by CertiPUR-US and free from a range of known harmful chemicals.

Which Tempur-Pedic Mattress is Right for You?

Tempur-Pedic makes a wide array of mattresses with different constructions and features to suit different sleep needs. The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt is the most luxurious and high-profile mattress in the company’s Adapt lineup. For consumers deterred by the luxury price-point of the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt, the TEMPUR-Adapt and TEMPUR-ProAdapt have many similar characteristics at a lower price.

Hot sleepers seeking a higher level of temperature neutrality should consider the Breeze line with its ProBreeze and LuxeBreeze models.

Unlike the all-foam LuxeAdapt, some of Tempur-Pedic’s collections include a hybrid option that is constructed with a support core of metal springs, including the hybrid TEMPUR-Cloud, TEMPUR-Adapt, and TEMPUR-ProAdapt models.

TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress FAQ

Is the Tempur-Pedic LuxeAdapt better than the ProAdapt?

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt has some benefits over the TEMPUR-ProAdapt that account for the higher price-point. The LuxeAdapt Mattress has a higher profile than the ProAdapt–13 inches versus 12 inches–and the LuxeAdapt utilizes an upgraded memory foam, called TEMPUR-APR+, which the brand describes as being its most conforming foam to date.

Is the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress too soft?

The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress comes in two firmness levels, soft (3) and firm (7), so there is an option available to suit most tastes, sleep positions, and body types. Our team found that the soft model may be too plush to support people who weigh over 130 pounds.

Will couples enjoy the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress?

Our testers think that couples will enjoy the great motion isolation of the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress. They may also appreciate that the king and California king can be ordered in split sizes, which means that one side of the bed is firm and the other is soft.

Is the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt Mattress worth the price?

Although the TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt has a luxury price tag, sleepers who want a high-quality and durable mattress with great pressure relief may decide that it’s worth the price.

Which Tempur-Pedic Mattress is the best?

Because sleepers’ needs differ by body type and sleeping position, our team has evaluated all of Tempur-Pedic’s mattress collections to identify which are best for side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers.
