Review And Complaints Of The Tempur-Pedic Contour Supreme Bed

More...

Are you a stomach, or a back sleeper? Are you looking for a firmer option? If you’ve said “yes” to both of these questions, then this mattress might just be the right fit for you.

On top of that, the Tempur-Contour has some pretty neat benefits which could make you go for it regardless of your sleeping position.

Tempurpedic, the company behind this bed, has been operating in the luxury mattress department for over two decades, so what do they have to show for it after all this time?

Their flagship mattress, the Tempur-Contour Supreme, has certainly caught our attention and apparently it is loved and praised by hundreds of previous owners, judging from buyer reviews.

All said and done, let’s jump right in and check out the construction behind this mattress. After that, we’ll summarize everything into a pros and cons list to help you form an objective, informed opinion.

Impressive Construction


The Tempur-Contour Supreme comes with a cover which is both removable and washable. One of the first layers in this mattress is the comfort layer, it is 1“ thick and made out of Tempur-Adapt material. The ‘adapt’ part, in the company’s own words, serves towards “personalized comfort and support.“

Underneath, we come to a 2.4“ thick support layer, made out of the same material, and below the support layer, we find the base. The base is not tempur-material made and is a standard polyfoam. Overall, this bed is 11.5“ thick.

In case you’re unfamiliar with ‘tempur-material,’ it is a customized memory foam which Tempurpedic claims help enhance support for your body and distribute the weight evenly.

It is good to know that Tempurpedic uses its SmartClimate System in this bed, it helps protect against moisture, and keeps you cool during warmer nights, and warm during winter.
The density of this mattress should be quite high, provided that they’re using visco-elastic polyurethane foam.

Note that the visco-elastic foam does provide extra comfort, but at the same time it might be a hassle for overweight sleepers since they will probably experience being “sucked in” into the mattress.

All of this combined provides this bed with a 10-year expected lifespan. This means it’s more durable than most mid or even some high-level memory foam beds.

Excellent Option for Stomach & Back Sleepers


Tempurpedic themselves have stated that this mattress is one of the firmest options they showcase in all of their products. This translates to this being a good choice for people who sleep on their backs or stomach, and perhaps a bad choice for side-sleepers.

One other thing, remember, this is a memory foam mattress, and yet, it is extremely firm. There’s a specific niche of people who are looking for this exactly. You get the comfort of the memory foam, yet you don’t ‘sink’ into the mattress the moment you lie on it. However, you should still be aware that you most likely will “sink in” if you’re over-weight.

That said, the firmness does one other great thing. It isolates motion to almost a perfection. This makes it an absolute must-have if you’re waking up during the night because your partner tosses and turns more often.

Helps with Lower Back & Neck Pain


This mattress seems to be praised for its pain-relief attributes. The support base seems to offer more than motion isolation and good support. In fact, many previous buyers have said they’ve stopped feeling back or neck pain after a few weeks of sleeping on this bed.

This might not be so important for you if you’re not having these kinds of issues. However, for people like me, who experience lower back pain on a daily basis – this would be a huge thing, and quite possibly a deciding factor when thinking about purchasing this mattress.

What We Like

  • Reputable Company – the Tempur-Contour Supreme comes from a company that’s been manufacturing luxury memory foam mattresses for over two decades and has been operating successfully – meaning they’re obviously doing something right.
  • Durability – this mattress should last for at least ten years, making it one of the few beds on the market that have such a long use expectancy.
  • Motion Isolation – Tempurpedic has done a great job isolating motion with this mattress, meaning you won’t feel your partner toss and turn over the night, making sure you’re in for a relaxed, long-lasting sleep session.
  • Choice – TEMPUR-Contour Supreme is available in 7 different sizes including Queen and Split King.

What We Didn't Like

  • Not for Side-Sleepers – being that it’s on the firmer side, this mattress might not do best for side sleepers. However, this doesn’t include every individual out there. Some reviews still claim that side-sleeping is perfectly fine with this bed.
  • Hefty Price Tag – this mattress is quite expensive, and we would recommend you look at cheaper options if you’re shopping on a specific budget.

Is Tempur-Contour Supreme the Right Choice for You?


It depends. This is a memory foam bed. This means it gets you that extra feeling of comfort. It’s also been built firm, meaning you won’t get ”sucked in”. Furthermore, the mattress breathes well, has excellent support, and doesn’t warm up too much during the summer.

In fact, the only reason why we wouldn’t recommend this bed is if you’re a dedicated side-sleeper. Still, it might be good for you particularly, but the fact that it’s one of the firmest memory foam mattresses out there makes it a bad choice for most side-sleepers.

It’s also worth mentioning that the motion transfer is almost non-existent with this mattress, which is a big thing for a lot of people.

To summarize, this is a high-quality product for sure, and Tempurpedic certainly seems to know what they’re doing. However, it does come with a hefty price tag, so it will probably boil down to whether or not you’re shopping on a budget.

If you’re not a sole side-sleeper, and if you can afford it, then our opinion is that you’ll experience a long-lasting, restful sleep, every night on this mattress – for years to come.
