Overview

becky says

The Tempur Sensation Elite Mattress is a top choice for people who want the best quality mattress at an affordable price. The mattress is made from high-quality materials that guarantee comfort and support. It’s also designed to adjust to your body’s natural shape, giving you a more aligned and healthy sleeping experience.

With a rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars through Bensons for Beds, customers clearly agree that it’s an excellent quality mattress at an affordable price. It’s also very durable and can last for many years before needing to be replaced, hence why the popular brand has backed this product with their impressive 10-year guarantee (far beyond the industry average of 1 year).

While the Tempur Sensation Elite Mattress is reasonably priced, it still costs more than other memory foam mattresses. However, if you don’t mind spending a little more money on a better quality mattress, it could be well worth it in the long run as Tempur are the pioneers of memory foam mattresses and have recognition from NASA while being certified by The Space Foundation. Both impressive traits you will not find elsewhere.

The Sensation Elite sits at the top of the range and a firmer support layer that pairs well with memory foam to give you a plush and comfortable sleeping experience. Its thick, supportive layers help to align your spine, helping to relieve pressure points and keep you comfortable all night long while the extra-deep pocketed base and comes in a wide range of sizes to fit any bed frame.

The Tempur Sensation Elite mattress from Tempur-Pedic is one of the best mattresses that you can buy on any budget and for back sleepers in particular, you can expect to get a great night’s sleep on this mattress, thanks to its combination of excellent support and comfort.

Reasons to Buy

Flagship Tempur product at a reasonable price point that has proven itself among the crowd.

One of the strongest guarantees in the industry.

Consistently gets high reviews.

Reasons to Avoid

Price point may alienate many, as the top range Tempur model this may be most suited to those who truly appreciate a good nights sleep and are willing to pay for it.

Longer lead times than people may perhaps like, however, these are handmade and made to order so it is not unrealistic to expect this sort of timing.

Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the wizard above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Performance

  • Stability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

What Makes The Tempur Sensation Elite Mattress Great?

10 Year Guarantee

A 10 year guarantee is a huge reflection of just how much trust the manufacturer and the retailer have in their product. for reference, mandatory requirements are for a 1 year guarantee.

Comfort Grade – Firm

A firm comfort layer is ideal for back and stomach sleepers or those that have a higher BMI than average. Alternatively they can be a great source for those that suffer from neck or back pain. This tension sits higher than a medium designation and lower than a extra-firm designation.

25cm depth

25cm depth is about average for a mattress, it leaves plenty of room for good quality fillings while still allowing you to fit a standard sheet over it.

Premium memory foam mattress

Premium Memory foam is a very popular and luxurious mattress layer to aid in comfort. The buzz around memory foam is well justified, it is incredibly comfortable and makes it feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. Standard caveats apply however, memory foam can make you hot and this may present a problem for those that do find themselves getting warm through the night. For those with this issue, take a look at a Latex mattress. For everyone else though, you cannot beat it.

Spring-like feel

Dynamic support technology

Unique to TEMPUR®, Dynamic Support Technology guarantees ease of movement while offering full body support. The issue surrounding movement is one which has frequently pained customers of memory foam mattresses due to how you sink into the mattress. The assurance and feedback from Tempur and it's customers suggest that this is a thing of the past.

Ultimate back care

Mattresses offering better back care will typically have a firmer support than normal. This can offer additional support combined with a variety of comfort options that can suit every persons preference.

Removable cover, washable at up to 60°C

Removable covers help keep things fresh. The average person keeps their mattress for around 7 to 8 years and over time that can make your mattress a fairly unhygienic place to be. Thanks to the removable cover, you can sleep easy knowing that your mattress and your health, are protected.

Low Maintenance Mattress

Low maintenance mattresses are typically one sided meaning that they do not need to be flipped. This is beneficial because, well, mattresses can be heavy and it's a bit of a pain. Another benefit if that single sided mattresses actually tend to be a little bit cheaper, since you're saving money on a layer you won't be sleeping on half the time anyway.

Non-turn, non-flip

A non turn and non flip mattress is considered very easy maintenance with very little else to do in terms of keeping the mattress in best working condition. This means that the mattress is one sided and has the comfort layer at the top of the mattress only. This means no flipping nor turning is necessary to provide long lasting comfort

Space Certified Technology

Tempur are the only company to have their mattresses and pillow recognised by NASA with an additional certification from The Space Foundation

Customer Reviews For The Tempur Sensation Elite Mattress

Based on 35 reviews

Its nothing to do with Bensons as such But I do think Tempur should lower their prices a bit more so that people who are on a slightly lower income can afford a good mattress. A lot of people work super hard to make ends meet and their bodies are overworked and deserve to rest well.

5

Very comfortable just perfect for my requirements. Lie on this mattress and it just fits around you, no waking up trying to get comfortable , never slept better! Thank you.

I do not sleep well however, since getting this mattress things are improving. Yes they are expensive but the quality is second to none and worth the money in my opinion

The mattress is very comfortable and and feels warm almost as soon as I get in. Its supportive and will hopefully continue to provide the same level of support.
