Poor foundation; gets too warm (traps heat)

Jun 8, 2009
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Conforms well to body; Relieves pressure points better than most mattresses.

Cons:Poorly designed foundations; difficult to change positions during sleep; foam doesn't breathe (too hot) 

The Bottom Line: Not worth the high price and hype. Negative characteristics outweigh the positives.


We had high expectations for this mattress--we bought the Classic II Tempur-Pedic for around $2000 (with required box foundations, that is if you want to keep the 20-year Tempur-Pedic warranty) from a local Living Spaces. About 8 months after having purchased it, we regret the purchase.Though the mattress does relieve "pressure points"--especially at the hips when side-sleeping--there are other problems that far outweigh this positive point. First, within 3 months, the foundations (simple wood frame boxes with cheap cardboard tops) started croaking whenever the sleeper would move on the bed. These noisy foundations are loud enough to wake another person in bed--very loud. When complaints were sent to Tempur-Pedic, eventually we were given free replacements for these foundations. Within 3 months (AGAIN!) the foundations began creaking and groaning, just like before. After a week of sending a complaint, Tempur-Pedic still has not replied. Clearly, this is a fault of the underlying design of the foundation.Additionally, the mattress itself makes it very difficult to turn back and forth during a night's sleep. Because this viscoelastic foam is so soft, it takes a lot of effort to change positions--like sleeping in soft sand. If you turn more than once a night, it will be difficult to sleep in.Finally, because this is a synthetic foam that conforms to your body, it becomes a heat-sink (body heat is trapped and gets too warm within an hour or two of waking. This foam does not seem to "breathe" as well as a standard mattress.Bottom line: if you want to try this mattress out, and you ABSOLUTELY love it after the 90-day trial period, then keep it. BUT, if you are even slightly bothered, give it back before the 90 days because none of the initial problems will get better. In my opinion, this bed is NOT worth the high price and hype!
