Amerisleep Mattress

Best For:

  • Shoppers who seek a more budget-friendly mattress
  • Anyone who like the feel of an all-foam mattress
  • Hot sleepers
  • Side, back, and combo sleepers
  • Getting that responsive but soft feel
  • Relieving pressure comfort and support

Amerisleep AS3 12

For this comparison, we decided to choose AS3 which Amerisleep considers it as the most versatile mattress in its mattress line. As its competitor in this round, we chose the TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze from the line of TEMPUR-Cloud mattresses. Now, let’s break down the components of these mattresses by starting with their construction.


First things first, this AS3 mattress from Amerisleep consists of three layers under its cover. These layers make up its 12 inches thick profile which comes in handy for those who prefer a really thick mattress. For its outer layer, Amerisleep AS3 mattress is encased in a high-performance Celliant cover. In case you didn’t know yet, Celliant is one of the most advanced fabrics that are made of 13 Thermo-reactive minerals. These minerals help improve the overall performance of the mattress while you sleep by transforming body heat into infrared light. Together, Celliant and infrared light helps increase the blood flow in our body to carry more oxygen. When it comes to its aesthetics, it has Amerisleep kept its pattern and color simple which minimalists would surely love. But aside from this 21% part of the cover, its fabric blend also consists of 77% polyester and 2% spandex. Moving on to look under its cover, its first layer is a cooling layer that made to be extra breathable. This is made of Bio-Pur foam which is 5x more breathable compared with traditional memory foams. Its second and middle layer is also called the transition layer. This layer creates soft and “floating” feeling and reacts according to your body’s position. For its final layer, AS3 has sag-free and eco-friendly support that is made of Bio-Core foam. This layer is made to last for decades and made with natural plant components instead of petroleum. As expected from a versatile mattress, you can also use it on any frame you want. You can even place it directly on the floor if you want. Whether you want the Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, or Split King bed, you got it.


Amerisleep mattresses are designed by experts to help you get a better sleep every day. Carefully engineered, AS3 combines its innovative and proprietary materials to offer a versatile mattress. Between futon mattresses that are too firm and pillow-top mattresses that are too soft, this one stands along the middle. Yes, this means that it has medium firmness which is great for side and combo sleepers. But unlike other foam mattresses out there with medium firmness, AS3 has that Cloud 9 feeling. So if you want to feel like you’re resting on a cloud, perhaps this can satisfy you. It can give you enough hug and sinkage depth which depends on your body type and weight. Basically, the heavier you are the more sinkage it can give you for comfort. Most importantly, it will not trap your body on the mattress for more comfort and “less stuck” as it bounces back into shape. In less than five seconds can bounce back already to recover its original state.

Temperature Regulation

No one wants to sleep on a mattress that is either too hot or too cold. Thus, Amerisleep also maximized its state of the art technology to incorporate Bio-Pur technology. This superior technology is designed to give a cooling effect using its advanced open-cell structure. Thus, it can also wick away heat and moisture as you sleep for a more comfortable feeling.


Amerisleep AS3 has impressive support with all of its mentioned layers above. Its foam layers can contour to your body curves and guarantee your spinal’s proper alignment. Most sleepers who enjoy the support of this mattress are back, side, and combo sleepers. It has medium sinkage while reducing the motion transfer across the mattress surface. Its flexible design allows it to isolate motion to avoid disturbing your partner’s sleep whenever you get in/out of bed at night. Its middle layer can support your weight and distribute it evenly. At the same time, it can help relieve pressure points and ease back pains.

Tempur-Pedic Mattress

Best For:

  • Hot sleepers who need a cooler mattress to draw the heat of their body
  • Anyone who wants the feel of premium foams
  • Stomach, back, side, or combo sleepers
  • Small to medium-sized users
  • Enjoying some pressure relief and motion isolation

Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze

The TEMPUR-Cloud and AS3 have a lot in common since they are both foam mattresses. Keep reading to learn more about Tempur-Pedic’s Cloud Supreme Breeze.


Tempur-Pedic offers a lot of mattresses but this one is a little different since it is an all-foam mattress. But first, we just want to point out that this model comes in different sizes. Its available sizes range from Twin Long/Twin XL, Double, Queen, King, Split King, California King, and Split California King. But unlike the AS3 model, this one consists of multiple foam layers that make up its 11.5 inches profile.

Its first and outer layer is a performance fabric cover that is lightweight and breathable. Compared with the average mattress covers, Tempur-Pedic made its cover more innovative to feel cozier. Taking a closer look underneath its cover, TEMPUR-Cloud has the TEMPUR-ES material which acts as its comfort layer. This extra soft layer is also made with TEMPUR-Adapt. If you’re wondering, creates all its exclusive materials for all of its products to ensure their quality. Digging deeper for its third layer, there’s the TEMPUR-Climate which is another TEMPUR material that was formulated by Tempur-Pedic. This is the support layer that helps distribute your body weight evenly on the surface. Below it is the base layer which holds all the foam layers above it.


If you’re going to pinpoint its firmness level on a scale of 1 to 10, TEMPUR-Cloud has a score of 5. If the “very soft” is 1 and “very firm” is 10, this model is designed to be in the middle. Its layers provide a balanced feel which allows sleepers to enjoy a pleasant sinkage that reaches up to 2 inches deep. Moreover, you can get that contouring hug from head to toe without making you feel stuck in bed. Thus, getting in and out of bed without sending huge waves in bed is now possible. Great for medium-sized sleepers, TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze feels comfortable when you’re lying in any normal position. Not to mention if you’re lying on your back or side. If you’re a stomach sleeper, you can lie on your stomach and feel its soft foam. On the other hand, some back and side sleepers who are a little heavy may sink further than they expected. Therefore, they may experience a slight sinkage along their spine when they are lying on their back or side. Eventually, this curvature may lead to discomfort and back pain so we don’t recommend it for heavy sleepers.

Temperature Regulation

TEMPUR-Cloud is the line of Tempur-Pedic mattresses that focus on offering a cloud-like mattress for a wide range of consumers. But what’s even impressive in this mattress is that it comes with multiple layers that are made with cooling technology. These layers and its innovative cover that encases them are made from various TEMPUR materials. For instance, the TEMPUR-ES layer is infused with PureCool material which made it cooler than other comfort layers. Meanwhile, its breathable performance fabric cover helps it maintain a cool temperature to give you a more comfortable sleep. That is all because of its infused cooling technology which is also present in the TEMPUR-Climate layer. This base layer channels the excess heat out of the mattress instead of trapping it which causes sweating and discomfort.


Every mattress needs a support layer so Tempur-Pedic created TEMPUR-Climate to take the job. This layer helps distribute your body weight evenly on the mattress to reduce the motion transfer. It also has its base layer to provide reinforcement and support different sleeping positions. Its support system is also made to provide pressure relief for in case you suffer from back pains. As your body sinks, it contours to your body curves to provide support right where you needed it. Believe it or not, sleepers compliment this mattress for getting rid of body pains including chronic back pain.


Now that you’re finally here to differentiate Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic, let’s start with its price section, shall we? Based on their prices, Amerisleep AS3 appears to be way more affordable than TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze. For instance, AS3 Twin XL/Long size mattress costs $949 and its Split King costs $1,898. On the other hand, its competitor’s Twin XL/Long sized mattress costs $2,309.30 and its Split King costs $4,618.60. Take note, the current figures we got from both brands are their discounted prices already. Clearly, Tempur-Pedic’s prices are too high to be affordable. When it comes to aspects that meet the standards of the Clean Air Act, Amerisleep also has an advantage. Amerisleep maintains its reputation for producing environmentally-friendly foams through its patented process. Instead of petroleum, the company uses plants as a replacement to exceed the standards. But if you’re going to focus on temperature regulation, this is where Tempur-Pedic comes with more benefits. It consists of more cooling layers including its breathable cover so it’s a great buy if you’re a hot sleeper. If you live in a tropical area, its cooling effect can help you sleep like a baby despite its price range.


Have you made up your mind? No pressure. We will help you make the final verdict. Try to ask these questions to yourself and you’re good to go:

First, do you prefer eco-friendly products?

If you love nature that much that you’re willing to invest in eco-friendly but quality products, Amerisleep is obviously the best choice.

Second, how cool do you want your mattress to be?

Amerisleep has a Bio-Pur cooling foam but it’s nothing compared with all the layers of Tempur-Pedic that allows better temperature regulation.
