New Tempur-Pedic Mattress: 6-Months Later
Updated: Oct 22
In my continued quest to unlock the secrets of getting deep, restorative sleep, six months ago, I decided to splurge on a ProAdapt Tempur-Pedic mattress. After spending many nights tossing and turning and waking up feeling stiff and locked in my body, I wanted to see how big of a difference a new Tempur-Pedic mattress would make.
Investing in a new mattress is costly, and it often takes longer than the standard 90 day return policy companies give before figuring out if the mattress works best for you. My biggest concern was spending thousands on a Tempur-Pedic mattress but hating it a few months later and being stuck with it. However, my sleep quality was having a ripple effect on my daily life, and I was desperate for a change.
During my first week, the results were promising, and backed by the insights of my trusty Whoop strap. In that first week, I was already showing an increase in hours of sleep and recovery, but how does it hold up long term?
In this blog post, I will share my experiences after using a Tempur-Pedic mattress, highlighting the positive results of upgrading, Whoop data compared to the previous year, and my overall thoughts.
The Upgrade to Tempur-Pedic
Unparalleled Comfort: One of the big selling points for me was how the mattress molds to your body. As a side sleeper with spine issues, this was important to me to make sure my body stayed aligned. This extra support has significantly helped the aches and pains I felt upon waking up in my previous mattress.
Motion Isolation: The older I get the lighter sleeper I’ve become, and movements at night always woke me up. However, the motion transfer on the mattress is nearly non-existent, which has been a game changer for my partner and me.
Reduced Tossing and Turning: Since the mattress does a great job at contouring my body’s shape, I noticed that I don’t toss and turn during the night as often. I also fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, resulting in better overall sleep quality. My partner always comments how jealous she is that I can fall asleep within minutes of hitting the pillow. In my previous mattress, it took me a lot longer to get comfortable.
Durability: While it’s only been 6-months, the Tempur-Pedic mattress has held up well, and shows no signs of sagging or wear and tear. In the first weeks, the mattress did feel firm, but not to the point where it was overly uncomfortable. After getting through the break in period, the mattress has softened and adjusted to both my partner and I’s body shape and weight.
From the first day I started using Whoop in March of 2021, checking my sleep data has been a part of my daily morning routine ever since. From sleep time to time awake, I was excited to see the metric changes from this mattress upgrade. To my surprise, there were several positive trends worth noting.
Compared to the previous year, here are my six-month sleep averages after using a Tempur-Pedic mattress:
In the past six months, I had significant changes in my overall sleep compared to the same period the previous year. My sleep was more efficient, I got more sleep, and spent less time awake.
After six months of using my Tempur-Pedic mattress, I can confidently say that it has transformed my sleep quality, positively impacting not only my nights but my days as well. The negatives of my old mattress are thankfully a distant memory replaced by more restful sleep.
Some of my initial concerns, such as being stuck with a mattress I didn’t like, long-term durability, and my body overheating from the memory foam have been non-issues for me. The comfort, support, and reduced tossing and turning combined has helped give me more energy and a generally better mood throughout the day.
My only regret was not spending a little extra on a king-sized version.
Should You Consider a Tempur-Pedic Mattress?
If you’re in a similar situation, struggling with a worn-out mattress and the negative effects on your sleep, it’s an investment worth considering. While it comes with a high vomit inducing price tag, the potential long-term benefits to your health and well-being are priceless.
You’re not just buying a bed; you’re investing in a better quality of life. So, if you’re looking to upgrade your current mattress, I recommend giving Tempur-Pedic a closer look.
