The Tempur-Contour Supreme is the firmest mattress that Tempur-Pedic offers. As a result, it’s definitely not for everyone (there’s no one best Tempurpedic), but it can be a good option for back and stomach sleepers looking for a firmer option.
The mattress has a removable and washable cover. The comfort layer is just one inch thick and contains Tempur material. Then there is a 2.4 inch thick support layer, also with Tempur material. Below that is a base layer of standard polyfoam. The total thickness of the mattress is 11.5 inches.
The company does not disclose its specifications, possibly out of fear of being knocked off by competitors. However, by knowing the weight and the thickness of the mattress and then comparing it to other mattresses, you can get a sense for the quality of the materials.
For example, Loom and Leaf is a competitor that uses high quality, dense materials. It is 12 inches thick and weighs 93 lbs. The Contour Supreme is 11.5 inches thick and weighs 94 lbs., so somewhere in its construction it uses denser materials than the L&L. Overall, one can conclude that the materials used in the Contour Supreme are high quality and durable.
The company website plainly states that the Contour Supreme is the firmest mattress available in their line (just ahead of the Contour Elite). This makes it ideal for stomach and back sleepers, but it’s not so ideal for side sleepers.
If you are looking at getting a Tempur-Pedic, then you are probably wondering why you should pick one model over another. In the case of the Tempur-Contour Supreme, the reasons should be pretty clear. It is the firmest model that they have available. If you are a pure back or stomach sleeper and really want that extra firmness, then this mattress might be the way to go. It’s also the cheapest model that they have available, so this mattress will be easier on your wallet. See our comparison of the Contour Supreme and Elite.
This model can be a good option for someone looking for a really firm memory foam option. As with other Tempur-Pedic options, my biggest concern is the price tag. If that’s not an issue for you, then this model could be a good choice.
