Why our sleep experts loved it

The Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress is a medium firm product that is made of soft Tempur memory foam. It is designed to mold to the shape of your body and provide even support, which makes it ideal for side and back sleepers who weigh less than 110kg. The memory foam allows you to slowly sink into the mattress and provides a feeling of being cradled and supported.

One of the main benefits of the Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress is that it offers good pressure relief, which means it can help reduce the discomfort and pain that some people feel in certain parts of their body while sleeping. This is especially useful for people who suffer from conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, or chronic back pain. The memory foam also has a slow response to pressure, which means it takes a little longer to return to its original shape after you get out of bed. This can help reduce the feeling of being "thrown out" of the bed when you move around at night.

However, the Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress may not be suitable for everyone, depending on their sleep position, weight, and preference for temperature regulation. For example, stomach sleepers may find the deep sink of the memory foam too suffocating and may prefer a firmer mattress that offers better spinal alignment. Heavier people, especially back sleepers, may also find the mattress too soft and may need more support to keep their spine straight. In these cases, a firmer mattress may be a better option.

One of the main drawbacks of the Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress is that it tends to retain heat, which may make it uncomfortable for hot sleepers. The memory foam absorbs and traps heat, and the lack of air circulation can make the mattress feel stuffy and warm. If you are a hot sleeper or live in a warm climate, you may want to consider a mattress with more breathability and cooling features, such as the Dormeo Memory Plus mattress or the Simba Hybrid Pro. These mattresses have special layers or materials that help regulate temperature and keep you cool at night.

On the plus side, the Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress does not transfer motion, which makes it ideal for those who sleep with a partner who moves around a lot at night. The memory foam only responds to the pressure applied to it and does not distribute the motion across the rest of the mattress, which means you are less likely to feel disturbed by your partner's movements. This can be especially useful for people who are light sleepers or have sleep disorders such as insomnia or sleep apnea.

Another positive feature of the Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress is its good edge support, which means it provides a stable and secure feeling when you sit or sleep on the edge of the bed. This can be especially important for people who like to use the whole surface of the mattress or who have mobility issues and need to get in and out of bed easily. The edge support also helps prevent the mattress from sagging or collapsing over time, which can increase its durability and lifespan.

In conclusion, the Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress is a good choice for light-weight back sleepers who are looking for a comfortable, supportive, and motionless mattress. It offers good pressure relief and a feeling of being cradled by the memory foam, which can help reduce pain and discomfort. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, depending on their sleep position, weight, and preference for temperature regulation. If you are not sure whether the Tempur Cloud Elite Mattress is right for you, you can always consult the WantMattress experts or try it out in a showroom before making a decision.

    ★★★★★
  • Mattresses that feature breathable materials help promote airflow and keep you cool making for a more hygienic night's sleep.

Well well well, after a sticky start I originally brought an Igel mattress firm, it just wasn't for me and so I had to change the mattress, as it was giving me really bad aches and pains. I popped back into store and I must say the sales advisor truly listened and directed me to right direction, the tempur mattress. It is very pricey in my opinion but you get what you pay for, I literally sleep on cloud 9, the pillows are heavy but very comfortable, I think it is very important to invest in what you use most and I'm glad I did, the only thing I'll say is it's a bit difficult to manoeuvre, but I sleep very well sometimes without even tossing, I would definitely recommend.

I have searched for 15 years, spending an excessive amount of money, trying to find a mattress I can sleep on comfortably I have a very complicated and painful back condition and had given up ever having a good nights sleep again. I received my Tempur mattress on 23rd November 2023. I would advise anyone to buy this mattress but bear in mind that your body has to mould to it. It has taken a couple of months for this to happen but I can't now say it's wonderful. I can now sleep well for the first time in years. I am happy and very satisfied with my mattress and really thank Selina at Bensons Leeds 11 for her help and assurances and patience in helping me with my purchase.

Just what I needed. I have a lot of neck and shoulder pain from an accident which is now arthritic pain. Also hip osteo arthritis. This mattress really helps with joint pain as you sink in and there is no pressure on the joints and yet you still feel supported all over must be the built in technology. Honestly I was never able to sleep through the night but now I do. Its made such a difference. I would recommend anyone with joint pain to get one of these mattresses I chose the cloud which is softer yet supportive, I would suggest try them all out in the showroom as I did.

We used to have a tempur mattress that we had for years. The only downside was that it could get a bit too hot in the summer. We decided to try a quality gel mattress about a year ago. There wasn't much difference and it wasn't as comfortable. We decided to go back to a tempur mattress and chose the softer one. It is much more comfortable and cooler than before, it is the best mattress we have ever had.

Love this, best mattress ever! Comfort levels are first class and I sleep so much better than ever before, I've noticed a reduction in fatigue and pain and when you have a chronic illness thats an amazing feeling. The price is steep and I'm not sure that it is reasonable for a mattress. That said, the benefits are so good I know I made the right choice and I wouldn't change it given the chance.

Having had a Tempur Mattress Topper for some time I knew what to expect with my new, complete, mattress. My first two night's on the Tempur Cloud Elite mattress I managed to sleep all the way through,! I'm still sleeping well. Having had a back problem for some years, I've noticed less pain throughout the day and I can get up in the morning feeling OK! Well worth the high price tag....

Feedback was they had an amazing sleep ( usually always wake-up with a sore back, from their bed ) They asked for details about this amazing bed !!! Service amazing from start to finish .

After trying many mattresses this one did suit our preference best, it was comfortable but slightly on the pricey side. However, looking at the long term benefits if it holds up to its potential it could be well worth its money but only given 4stars for now as its too early to give a honest opinion. So far so good with a short bedding in period.

I received a good price in-store after a short negotiation, the delivery was flawless, and now I am enjoying the mattress. It comfortably takes the right shape, so there is no back pain with slipless nights. This is probably the best memory foam mattress on the market.

Is this mattress suitable for people with back issues?

Answer: The mattress offers a soft comfort grade, which will not provide the level of support needed for individuals with back issues. If you have specific back concerns, a firmer mattress might be a better option for you.

I'm concerned about overheating at night. Does this mattress have cooling features?
