Why our sleep experts loved it
When a mattress has the words very firm in the title of the product, you get a feeling for the direction that the product is perhaps going in relative to it's tension and firmness.
The TEMPUR Very Firm CoolTouch Elite Mattress is the latest in a line of new products from Tempur and is, in this case, very firm. Suitable for those that sleep on their back, hack neck or back pain or of higher BMI, this mattress will appeal to many.
To start, the brand. Tempur have been renowned in the mattress industry for decades now, superseding many rivals in both quality and price, proving they are one of the big boys in the industry.
This mattress has particular staying power due to it's cool-touch technology. This mattress comes with the CoolTouch™ cover which provides a cool touch sensation in all seasons meaning you can remain cool while you sleep.
Finally, you have a 10 year guarantee which is incredible for an industry plagued by 1 year guarantee as standard. Bare in mind that the average mattress lifespan is pegged at around 7 years so what Tempur are saying is that this mattress will last longer than the average while also providing a guarantee to back up those claims. This shows how much trust that Tempur and the retailer both have in the product and why you should buy with confidence.
The TEMPUR Very Firm CoolTouch Elite Mattress is well reviewed and has amassed an impressive 200 reviews which for a new mattress shows people are eager to invest in the product. Feedback is strong, with 93% who own it recommending this mattress. Positive feedback is predictably around the impressive back support, being a very firm mattress it will appeal to many with neck and back issues and it looks to be working. Others were also impressed with the quality to price ratio and that while the price may be premium, so too are the materials and components.
Negative feedback is rare but we have found a few examples. These seem to be limited to people that found the mattress to be too firm. We don't really see the issue in this instance as it's categorised already as very firm. Ultimately this sort of mattress will only appeal to those who need specific orthopaedic support for greater back and neck support.
