Why our sleep experts loved it
So we have got a treat for you all today with a fresh review for the improved TEMPUR CoolTouch Original Elite Mattress. From one of the biggest and most popular brands in the industry, Tempur has made inroads into the higher quality mattress segment with this new CoolTouch Original Elite.
The Cooltouch Original Elite Mattress is the top of the range in mattresses sold from the Dreams retailer and is well regarded within the industry as a market leader. The product performs well in both comfort and support thanks to that exclusive and unique Tempur premium memory foam which offers the perfect balance.
To start, this is a premium memory foam mattress, so you get all the comfort of memory foam with the premium quality of the Tempur brand. What separates this mattress from others at this price point is the incredible 10 year guarantee included. This means that if anything goes wrong with that mattress within that 10 year period, it is taken care of. Let’s take a moment to unpack that, the average person has a mattress for 7 years before having to replace it due to wear and tear, settlement problems and more. With 10 years guarantee, the retailer and supplier are basically putting their reputation and finances on the line and is a testament to the quality of the mattress.
What is TEMPUR CoolTouch?
Tempur has been making the Original Elite mattress for a number of years that, with time has seen it get carved up on price by a number of different high street retailers and online powerhouses. In recent months however, the Cooltouch model has arrived unique to Dreams that aims to address the warming foam of the previous model while increasing breathability, hygiene and durability as a result. The CoolTouch technology is a premium material which is woven throughout the cover in order to help increase breathability and produce a cooling affect which regulates excess body heat. Predictably given its namesake, the CoolTouch technology remains somewhat cool to the touch albeit not too cool to be uncomfortable, in-fact we wouldn't really call it cooling so much as a neutral heat regulator that keeps everything at a reasonable room temperature making it ideal for those that need an all-season and all year round mattress.
This particular model also features what has been dubbed QuickRefresh™ which in reality is a detachable cover that can be machine washed at 60 degrees celsius. People often overlook removable covers but shouldn't, you see the mattress will last close to a decade and in that time you will sweat into the mattress which makes it less hygienic and causes breathability issues with time. By allowing a removable cover, you get piece of mind and a fresher, better nights sleep. We recommend removable covers wherever possible.
When trialling this mattress, we found it on the firmer side. A firmer mattress is a great choice for those that are looking for a bit more support in their sleep, or suffer from back/neck pain. If you are on the smaller side, or found yourself being a side sleeper, this may not be the mattress for you, however, for everyone else, this is an absolute no brainer in terms of quality, support and lifespan.
The Cooltouch comes in a variety of standard popular sizes ranging from single, double king and super king. This means you will have no issue finding the right mattress to suit your bed frame.
Reviews for the Tempur Cooltouch Original Elite Mattress are fantastic, with over 900 review at time of writing making it the best selling and best performing mattress in the Dreams upper-quality segment and price point. Customers particularly enjoyed the level of support offered in the mattress with overs commenting on the great guarantee and confidence they have in the long-lasting ability of the product. Given the impressive 10 year guarantee, this isn't surprising as it far exceeds the competition at a price that when broken down, is fairly reasonable on a cost-per-night-of-sleep thanks to the longer standing durability offered.
