Tempur-Pedic Cloud vs Select Sleep Mattress
There are many Tempur-Pedic beds on the market today. Of them, the Tempur-Pedic cloud is one of the most popular, especially for those wanting a more luxurious sleep. This is because the “Tempur Cloud” is advertised as giving “extra-pillowy softness and super-adaptive support.” But does the bed live up to that promise?
It’s time to compare:
Tempur-Pedic Cloud and Cloud Supreme
Like most beds, Tempur-Pedic beds boast a base layer, a support layer, and a comfort layer. Where Tempur-Pedic tries to stand out is with its trademarked TEMPUR® material. This open-celled viscoelastic polyurethane foam is -- in short, just another kind of memory foam.
As a result, Tempur-Pedic beds have all the benefits, and problems, common to most other memory foam beds. While the foam is soft and conforms to your body, it can give you a “sinking” feeling. You may also sleep hot, and lack that “playful bounce” that you and your partner enjoy with an innerspring mattress.
Custom Beds by Select Sleep
Select Sleep, founded in 2000, has spent much of the last two decades perfecting its manufacturing processes so that it can quickly and professionally build beds to order. Any number of materials can be used in this process, including various memory foams, innerspring systems, and more. This means that Select Sleep can choose the materials that suit your particular tastes when it comes to the feel of your custom-made bed.
Head-to-Head Bed Comparison
We found that the Tempur-Pedic Cloud and Tempur-Pedic Cloud Supreme are most popular in households that can afford a more high-end mattress. With a price tag over $2,500, the Supreme certainly ranks as a luxury bed system.
That said, Tempur-Pedic Cloud reviews themselves tend to be split. Some owners appreciate the quality materials and the bed's ability to relieve pressure points and minimize aches and pains. Other owners, however, find many of the same problems that plague other memory foam mattresses:
- The bed tends to “sleep hot,” especially after a few hours of sleep
- Support is not good for side and back sleepers
- Mattress needs a long “breaking in” period and might sleep firmer until then
- Mattress “off-gases” and have a smell when it first arrives
- No “playful bounce” for bedroom fun
The truth is, there are many people who like a soft, luxurious feeling bed but who still prefer a traditional innerspring foundation. This is why custom building a mattress is often the best way to get a truly luxurious bed. Custom-fit mattresses from Select Sleep can be tailored to your specific needs and tastes. If you are a side sleeper or want a softer bed with little to “break in,” or just enjoy the springiness that a traditional innerspring offers, Select Sleep can easily build a bed to those specifications just for you.

How do you find the most comfortable sleep?
Tempur-Pedic beds have earned their reputation for being high-quality mattresses. However, their build actually caters to a very specific customer profile. At the end of the day, the mattress is layers of memory foam held together with adhesives. Those who like memory foam tend to love the Tempur-Pedic Cloud and give it good reviews. On the contrary, those who have issues with memory foam enjoy the bed much less.
Which are you? It might pay to find out.
If you are spending $3,000 or more on a bed, it better be a bed suited to your tastes. The best way to ensure this is to work with the manufacturer to find the which specific materials give you the comfort and support you need.
