Editor’s Note: The Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush mattress has been discontinued, but I recommend checking out Loom & Leaf mattress, known for its plush, luxurious feel.
The Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush is a memory foam mattress that’s designed to keep you cool. Its soft memory foam helps relieve tension without trapping heat thanks to its moisture-wicking cover, ventilated comfort layer, and breathable base.
To help you decide if this is the right bed for you, I put it through a bunch of tests to see how it does at relieving pressure and isolating motion. In addition to sharing my results, I’ll dig into the bed’s construction, see how it compares to other mattresses, and give you my take on who this mattress is good for.
Let’s get to it! And if time is of the essence, head on down to the bottom of this page for my summary.
Snuggle-Pedic has been making bedding products in the USA for the past 18 years. Founded by a chiropractor, Snuggle-Pedic makes foam toppers, pillows, mattresses (of course), and more.
While we won’t look at every Snuggle-Pedic product, we’ll see how the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush compares to two other mattresses: The Snuggle-Pedic Original and the Puffy. But before we get into that, let’s take a look at the materials inside the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush!
What is the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush Mattress Made of?
The big selling point of the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush is that it’s all about keeping you cool. The cover, comfort layer, and support layer are all engineered to decrease your risk of overheating at night. To give you a better idea of how it all works together, let’s break it down!
Cover – Up top is the removable bamboo cover. This eco-friendly material is super soft and contains natural moisture-wicking properties, so it can help you stay cozy and cool throughout the night.
Comfort Layer – Next up is the 4” gel-infused memory foam comfort layer. Folks who tend to overheat at night will probably enjoy this cover, since the gel helps dissipate body heat. Snuggle-Pedic has also aerated it by putting holes in the mattress. As a result, you might be more likely to sleep without breaking a sweat.
Support – Down at the bottom we have a layer of high-density polyfoam. This base is unique in that it includes grooves. When you lie down on the mattress, the comfort layer pushes air into the support layer’s grooves, which in turn directs the air away from the bed. This helps the mattress “breathe.”
How Does the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush Mattress Feel?
While it’s great to know what’s inside the mattress, you’re probably wondering what it feels like. Let’s begin by checking out its firmness.
As with any feel factor, your firmness preference is going to depend on your body size, weight, and shape. That said, my firmness preference might not be the same as yours. For reference, I’m 5’10”, 190 lbs., and prefer to sleep on my stomach.
After lying on the bed in various positions, I decided to give it a 5.5 on the firmness rating scale, with 10 being the firmness. Since the industry standard for medium-firmness is 6.5, the 5.5 rating puts it on the softer end of the firmness spectrum.
The 4” layer of memory foam was a big reason for my rating. This layer gave me a sink-in feeling that some folks may crave. Given the bed’s emphasis on softness, I’d say it will likely appeal to side sleepers and back sleepers in need of pressure relief (more on that ahead).
Testing the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush Mattress
Firmness isn’t the only factor that matters when it comes to choosing a comfortable bed. I tested the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush for two other performance metrics that are important to consider when shopping for a new mattress: pressure relief and motion transfer.
Let’s start with the bed’s pressure relief. When I say “pressure relief,” I’m talking about how well the bed does at alleviating tension in sensitive areas of your body, like your hips, shoulders, and lower back. Since tension can cause pain over time, good pressure relief can mean the difference between waking up with a yawn or waking up with a groan.
To illustrate my pressure relief tests, I went with a tried-and-true pressure map. This let me spot the precise locations of any pressure I felt. Keep in mind that the map uses a gradient of blue (no pressure) to red (high pressure).
Back – Lying on my back, I really felt the contouring hug of the comfort layer’s memory foam. This provided some nice pressure relief that I think back sleepers are especially going to enjoy. I also found it supportive enough to keep my spine in good alignment, giving me that “ahh” feeling.
Side – I think the soft memory foam is great for side sleepers. Memory foam’s quick response to pressure means it typically does a stellar job at alleviating tension. This pressure relief can help side sleepers from feeling jammed up at the shoulders.
Stomach – As a stomach sleeper, it didn’t offer the kind of support I’m looking for. I say this because I often recommend strict stomach sleepers go with a firmer mattress to keep their back and hips from sinking in too far. Since this lack of support can lead to pain throughout the night, I think stomach sleepers are going to want to look elsewhere.
Motion transfer has to do with how well a mattress keeps movement from other people (or pets) isolated. If too much movement is transferred from one side of the bed to the other, it might disturb you while you’re sleeping. This is especially important for folks who share a bed.
To test motion transfer on the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush, I dropped a 10 lb. steel ball from heights of four inches, eight inches, and 12 inches. Respectively, these heights simulated how it would feel if your bedmate switched positions, got out of bed, or decided to start jumping on the bed like a kid who’s had too much sugar. When you check out the results, note that the bigger lines mean bigger disturbance.
As you can see from the graphic above, the results show there was really low motion transfer for each drop. This has to do with the memory foam’s ability to isolate motion. The lack of noticeable disturbance from one side of the bed to the other means it could be a great mattress for couples.
Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush vs.
- While the Snuggle-Pedic Original shares a lot of the same features as the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush, it doesn’t share them all. For instance, the Original has a thinner comfort layer that isn’t infused with cooling gel.
- Given its more straightforward design, the Snuggle-Pedic Original will cost less.
- If you want more info on this mattress, head on over to my full review of the Snuggle-Pedic Original.
- The Puffy is a bit firmer than the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush. This is because it has a firmer transition layer, which will prevent most people from sinking in as much.
- I think the Puffy doesn’t handle motion transfer as well as the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush. It uses half as much memory foam as the Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush.

The Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush mattress uses cooling features in every layer. It’s also great at isolating motion, which is a big plus if you don’t sleep solo. While its memory foam is likely to give side and back sleepers the pressure relief they want, I don’t think it offers enough support for stomach sleepers.
Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush Pros
- This is a mattress that’s focused on helping you stay cool all night long. If you tend to be warmer at night, you’ll likely dig its moisture-wicking cover and ventilated comfort layer.
- Folks who deal with hip pain at night are likely to enjoy the pressure relief this mattress offers. Side sleepers that are on a mattress that’s too firm (meaning little pressure relief) can feel that pressure build up over time at their hips.
- This mattress is fantastic when it comes to motion isolation! This quality might especially appeal to folks who share a bed and are easily awoken by their bedmate’s movements.
Snuggle-Pedic Supreme Plush Cons
- Like I mentioned earlier, I think strict stomach sleepers might find it lacks the support they need to keep their spine, hips, and shoulders comfortably in alignment.
- I also think heavier folks will probably find it too soft, no matter their sleeping position. Just like with stomach sleepers, I recommend heavier people go with a mattress that offers more support.
