Who is the TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Topper Best For?

When shopping for a mattress topper, it’s important to consider your primary sleeping position, your body type, whether you are a hot sleeper, your budget, and more. Here’s who I think the TEMPUR-Adapt is (and isn’t) a good fit for.

Who I recommend the TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Topper for

  • Side and back sleepers should both be quite comfortable on this topper. They’ll both get a nice mix of pressure relief and support.
  • Memory foam fans will likely love how the thick and dense TEMPUR Material foam used in this topper feels.
  • Sleepers with allergies will also appreciate this topper’s removable and machine washable cover.

Who I don’t recommend the TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Topper for

  • Stomach sleepers will likely find this topper too soft to keep their hips from sinking into it. Sinking hips put a stomach sleeper’s spine out of alignment, leading to potential back pain down the road.
  • Hot sleepers may also find the TEMPUR-Adapt traps heat too easily to keep them cool at night, as it is made with heat-absorbing memory foam.
  • If you’re shopping on a budget, the TEMPUR-Adapt also may not be the best pick for you, as it is on the more expensive side. However, we have Tempur-Pedic coupons to help you out.

What is the TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Topper Made Of?

Cover: The TEMPUR-Adapt has a polyester blend cover, which is removable and washable. Tempur-Pedic says this cover is resistant to mold, allergens, and dust mite dander. 

Fill: The fill of the topper is three inches of TEMPUR Material foam, Tempur-Pedic’s proprietary memory foam.

This topper is available in six different sizes: twin, twin long, full, queen, king, and California king. I tested the queen size for this review.

How Does the TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Topper Feel?

I tested the TEMPUR-Adapt by laying on it in different sleeping positions, as well as trying it on different mattresses. 

Laying on the topper, I could tell the foam felt thick and dense. This is fairly typical for TEMPUR Material foam, based on my experience testing other Tempur-Pedic products. The dense foam is supportive and takes awhile to sink into, but as it warmed up around me, I ended up sinking in quite deeply for lots of contouring.

One of the main purposes of a mattress topper is to change the feel of your current mattress. To get a sense of how the TEMPUR-Adapt mattress topper works with different mattresses, I tested it on three mattresses of different firmnesses.

Soft: If you already have a fairly soft mattress, I don’t think there’s much reason to add the TEMPUR-Adapt. Putting a soft foam topper on top of a soft bed simply doubled the softness, making the bed feel extremely doughy. However, some side sleepers looking for extreme pressure relief may find this comfortable.

Medium-firm: I thought adding the TEMPUR-Adapt to a medium-firm mattress gave it a more true medium feel. The foam conforms around you to provide more pressure relief, but it doesn’t make the bed feel too soft. I think this would work well for side sleepers whose current mattress is a bit too firm and doesn’t contour around their shoulders and hips. That will also help to maintain their spinal alignment. 

Firm: Adding the TEMPUR-Adapt to a firm mattress gave it a more medium-firm feel. The topper provided the cushioning and body contouring, while the firm mattress below still provided lots of support. I think this would be a good option for back sleepers looking to be a little more comfy on their firm bed. This topper provides pressure relief around the shoulders and lower back.

My Verdict on the TEMPUR-Adapt Mattress Topper

All in all, I really liked the TEMPUR-Adapt mattress topper. I’d say it’s one of the best memory foam mattress toppers I’ve tested, in terms of a truly comfortable feel. You sink into this topper just right to feel super cozy.

Personally, I am a big fan of the proprietary TEMPUR Material foam, which has a thick, dense feel that allows for serious conforming and body contouring. I think both back and side sleepers will find this topper comfortable, particularly as it provides relief on pressure points. This topper should be a good pick for those with back, hip, or shoulder pain.

I also like that this topper has a removable cover you can wash in the washing machine. Foam is spot-clean only, so having that cover helps to keep your topper fresh and clean. That’s also a big plus to folks with allergies, in addition to the fact that this cover is allergen-resistant.

However, this isn’t a good choice for stomach sleepers, as it is too soft to maintain their spinal alignment properly. It also might not be a good choice for hot sleepers, as memory foam naturally traps heat quite easily and this topper doesn’t incorporate any cooling properties, such as gel memory foam or a breathable cover.

Additionally, I wish this topper had straps, a skirt, or another way of securing to your mattress, so you wouldn’t have to worry about it shifting.
