Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid)

Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid)

Super-comfortable but pricey

With a luxurious slow-sinking foam and sturdy edge support, the Tempur-Adapt (Medium Hybrid) feels leagues ahead of most mattresses we’ve tried. But it also costs two to four times as much as many foam mattresses that come in a box.

The entry-level Tempur-Adapt line (part of the three-line “Adapt” collection) features two options: the all-foam Medium and the foam-on-coil Medium Hybrid. Both give sleepers an assertive, body-conforming hug, which people either love or hate. (Most of our testers loved it.) We recommend the Medium Hybrid option in our guide to the best memory-foam mattresses because the springs make it slightly easier to move around on than the no-spring, all-foam Medium. Tempur’s proprietary brand of memory foam conforms more meticulously and deeply to every curve of your body than the memory foam of many other mattresses. The memory foam in the Tempur-Adapt is also denser, and therefore more durable, than that of most popular online mattresses, so it will probably last longer, especially if you weigh more than 200 pounds. But all of this comes at a not-so-entry-level price of $2,200 (unless there’s a sale). And Tempur’s return process is more involved than those of most online mattress companies, so it’s crucial that you try the Tempur-Adapt before you buy it. Fortunately, Tempur-Pedic has more than 50 flagship stores, and thousands of department and bedding retailers nationwide carry the Tempur-Adapt line. (See the company’s store locator.)
