Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze

The Tempur-Pedic and Casper have a lot in common since they are both comfy and well-made mattresses. Nonetheless, we will do our best to help you compare them based on various aspects as we go through this post. As an overview, Tempur-Pedic’s TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze consists of four layers. When it comes to The Casper Hybrid Mattress, you can also get multiple layers of foams to cushion your body.

Construction

We already know how keen is Tempur-Pedic when it comes to details based on our previous posts on other models. So, we will see how this specific mattress will do when compared to The Casper 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, California King, and Split California King. It 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 this layer, TEMPUR-Cloud has a comfort layer that is made of an extra soft TEMPUR-ES material. This layer is also made with TEMPUR-Adapt which is also an exclusive material made by Tempur-Pedic only for its products. For its third layer, Tempur-Pedic formulated another TEMPUR material which is called TEMPUR-Climate. This support layer helps distribute your body weight evenly across the mattress surface while it sits above the base layer.

Firmness

On a scale of 1 to 10, this Tempur-Pedic mattress has a 5 firmness score. If 1 is considered as very soft and 10 as very firm, the Cloud Supreme lies in the middle. Its balanced feel allows sleepers to enjoy its layers of foams which have a pleasant sinkage of up to 2 inches deep. Thus, this firmness level suits medium-sized sleepers best. Not to mention when they are lying in any normal position like on their back. It provides a balanced hug from head to toe without making you feel as if you’re stuck in bed. Getting in and out of bed can be easier now with this mattress despite its multiple layers of foams. For stomach sleepers, its surface feels softer when they lie on their belly. However, some back sleepers and side sleepers who weigh more than 200 pounds may feel like they are sinking deeper. As a result, some heavy sleepers experience a slight sinkage along their spine when they are lying on their back. If they lie on their side, this may also cause discomfort. No wonder why TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme is not usually recommended for heavy individuals.

Temperature Regulation

As its name suggests, TEMPUR-Cloud Supreme Breeze is the kind of mattress that suits hot sleepers best. It provides a cooling comfort that comes from its innovative cover and TEMPUR-ES material. TEMPUR-ES is infused with PureCool material which makes the foam cooler than regular all-foam mattresses. At the same time, its cover is designed to be breathable and cooler as it is also infused with cooling technology. In fact, even its TEMPUR-Climate layer and base layer can channel the excess heat out of the mattress.

Support

Since support plays an important role, Tempur-Pedic formulated TEMPUR-Climate as its support layer. This helps distribute body weight better on the mattress surface to reduce the transfer of motion. Of course, its base layer is there to back it up and provide support to various sleeping styles. So if you share your bed, it can allow you to move freely without worrying about disturbing your partner/bed mate. Its support system can also provide pressure relief for sleepers who suffer from back pains. The constant sinkage allows it to contour to body curves, especially in the lower back to help you relax.

Casper Mattress

Best For:

  • Price-conscious shoppers who are seeking an affordable mattress
  • Sleepers who prefer the soft and neutral feel of foams
  • All sleeping styles: back, side, stomach, and combo sleepers
  • Petite to medium-sized individuals

Casper Sleep Foam Mattress, Queen 10

Construction

Were you impressed by the Tempur-Pedic mattress? Well then, let’s see why Casper’s original and award-winning mattress is loved by all types of sleepers. Compared with the Tempur-Pedic mattress, this model is available in smaller sizes. These sizes include Twin, Twin XL/Twin Long, Full, Queen, King, and California King. When it comes to construction, this mattress has a full 12 inches profile with four layers of materials. Under its cover is breathable latex-like foam which provides an immediate bounce. Unlike Tempur-Pedic’s first foam layer that can make you sink, this layer makes it easier to move with its bounce rate. Next to this layer is a pressure-relieving foam that maintains a valuable comfort zone in the bedroom. This memory foam also provides comfort by conforming to your body curves. As the transition layer, its zoned layer can prevent you from sinking too much regardless of your size and weight. Its final and thickest layer is the coil system which contains hundreds of individually encased coils. Only available in the hybrid version, its construction also includes improved edge support which is great for couples. Compared with Tempur-Pedic’s mattress, its cover is also removable so you can remove it easily for cleaning purposes. Besides, its fabrics used are all imported from Belgium and just assembled in the USA. Moreover, it is 100% made from polyester which made its cover thin but soft and stretchable.

Firmness

Casper prides itself for creating a mattress that offers an excellent balance of soft and firm comfort level. On a scale of 1 to 10, this mattress has a score of 6 which makes it closer to the firmer side. When placed side by side with the Tempur-Pedic mattress, The Casper Hybrid Mattress is a little firmer. It also has a more responsive feel considering it has latex-like foam and a coil system for comfort and support. For sleepers who are lying in any normal position, this mattress allows up to 2.5 inches sinkage. This means that you can enjoy a deeper sleep as it wraps your body into a hug. However, take note that its sinking comfort still varies depending on your weight. If you have a petite to medium figure, you can benefit more from this Casper mattress as you reach its second comfort layer. But since it is the hybrid version we’re talking about, even heavy sleepers can also enjoy the firmness of the mattress. Thanks to its thick profile and coil springs, it has enough layers to cater for a wide range of sleepers.

Temperature Regulation

If Tempur-Pedic infused cooling technology to its layers of foams, this Casper bed has a breathable foam to match it. Its latex-like foam has an open-cell structure with tiny pores that allows air to flow better through the mattress. Thus, it also pushes the excess heat out of the mattress. At the same time, its coil system with individually encased coils allows air to circulate to back the foam layer.

Support

When it comes to support, this hybrid mattress is packed with supportive layers which also provide pressure relief. Its memory foam, for instance, can absorb your body weight and transfer the pressure away from your key areas. Moreover, its third layer of foam provides zoned support that focuses on your shoulders, hips, and legs. Whether you prefer sleeping on your side, back, or stomach, you will get just the same pressure relief and support. This also means that you can get a comfy spine alignment with the brand’s “just right” feel. Available only on the hybrid version, its resilient but gentle springs make a durable and supportive base. Its coils are also reinforced with its enhanced edge support which is also available in the hybrid version. This edge support has a firmer perimeter so you can get in and out of bed with ease. Most importantly, it can decrease your risk of falling out of bed whenever you get near it.

Differences

Now that we’re down to the differences of these Tempur-Pedic and Casper mattresses, let’s start with its construction. Tempur-Pedic is an all-foam mattress while Casper is a hybrid mattress. In case you are looking for that bouncy feel from traditional spring mattresses, The Casper Mattress has the coils you need. As a foam mattress, Tempur-Pedic can’t give you much bounce but it can wrap your body in a soft hug. When it comes down to body weight and sizes, you’re better off with Tempur-Pedic if your figure is between petite and medium. But if you are on the heavy side, the hybrid version of Casper can provide you with more support. No matter what your preferred sleeping style is, its hundreds of coils make the mattress more responsive, comfortable, and supportive. But if you’re looking for a more versatile size, Tempur-Pedic offers Split California King while Casper’s biggest size is California King only. However, Tempur-Pedic’s mattress costs from $2,309.30 (Twin Long/Twin XL) to $4,618.60 (Split California King) while Casper only costs from $595 (Twin) to $1,195 (California King).

Verdict

As mentioned above, Tempur-Pedic and Casper have similarities so we did our best to include everything you need in this comparison. To make it easier for you to decide which mattress to pick for your bedroom, try to ask yourself these questions:

First, how much is your budget?

If you’re seeking a California King sized mattress that costs less than $1,200, The Casper Hybrid Mattress is your best option. But if the price is not an issue, TEMPUR-Cloud is worth investing in.

Second, how much do you weigh?

If you weigh less than 200 and you prefer the soft foam feel in a mattress, Tempur-Pedic is a great choice. But if you’re a little heavy, the hybrid version of The Casper Mattress is a better choice.
