Tomorrow Sleep and Tempur-Pedic both sell mattresses in multiple firmness options that incorporate memory foam and, in at least some cases, springs. However, while Tempur-Pedic is a mattress industry veteran with premium products at premium prices, Tomorrow Sleep is newer on the market and more affordable. In this article, I will go over the similarities and differences among options from the two companies to help you decide which one is better for you.
- Both incorporate memory foam.
- Both have multiple firmness options, though Tempur-Pedic has more.
- Tomorrow Sleep uses springs in all its options and Tempur-Pedic in some.
- Tomorrow Sleep has a quicksand-y feel and so do options from Tempur-Pedic.
- The two companies offer trials of similar length (100 days for Tomorrow Sleep, 90 for Tempur-Pedic.)
- Both offer free shipping.
- Tempur-Pedic offers more mattress designs and firmness options.
- Tempur-Pedic offers thicker options, with some mattresses as thick as 14 inches. Tomorrow Sleep’s mattresses are 10 inches thick.
- Tempur-Pedic mattresses are significantly more expensive. ($2,099-$4,198 for different Tempur-Pedic options, compared to $550-1,150 for Tomorrow Sleep.)
- Tomorrow Sleep is available only online, while Tempur-Pedic is available online and in stores.
- Tempur-Pedic has been around a lot longer and has gone through more reviews and scrutiny.
Tomorrow Sleep Construction
- Tomorrow Sleep uses a similar construction for its Medium Soft and Medium Firm versions.
- The cover is polyester and nylon.
- On top is 1 inch of memory foam with phase change material.
- The next layer is gel foam, providing comfort and bounce. This layer is thicker in the Medium Soft option.
- The Medium Firm option has a layer of memory foam-like “dynamic response foam” under the gel foam layer.
- Both firmness levels have a 6-inch support layer that consists of individually pocketed coils. The Medium Firm option uses thicker coils.
- A foam side rail system reinforces edge support.
- The base of the mattress is 1 inch of stabilizing foam.
- Tempur-Pedic offers a number of mattress constructions. The 11-inch thick Tempur-Cloud Supreme, which is one of its least expensive mattresses, has a similar feel to Tomorrow Sleep. Unlike Tomorrow Sleep, Tempur-Cloud Supreme is all foam, though Tempur-Pedic does offer mattresses that use springs.
- The Tempur-Cloud Supreme has a soft, durable zip-off cover.
- On top is a layer using special fibers and Tempur-Pedic’s “SmartClimate” system to wick away moisture and help you sleep cool.
- Comfort and support layers come next. These layers uses Tempur-Pedic’s formulations of memory foam. The comfort layer uses TEMPUR-ES material, which is especially soft and conforms to the contours of the sleeper’s body. The support layer uses the original TEMPUR memory foam material.
- The base layer offers support and is formulated to help keep the mattress cool.
- Tempur-Pedic has more models and firmness options.
- Tomorrow Sleep only offers options that incorporate springs.
- Tempur-Pedic offers thicker options.
- Both companies use memory foam in their mattresses.
- I suspect the Tempur-Pedic models will be more durable than the Tomorrow Sleep mattress
Tomorrow Sleep and Tempur-Cloud Supreme have similar responsiveness to pressure, as demonstrated in the videos. However, Tomorrow Sleep springs back just a bit quicker. Note that the Tomorrow Sleep video below is for the Medium Firm option, and Medium Soft will be softer. Other models from Tempur-Pedic may have very different responsiveness.
Motion Transfer Differences
Both the Tempur-Cloud Supreme and Tomorrow Sleep mattresses isolate motion really well and would be good options for couples. There may be some variation in motion isolation among different models of Tempur-Pedic mattresses.
Pick Tomorrow Sleep If:
- You are on a budget– Tomorrow Sleep will give you a similar experience as some Tempur-Pedic options at a fraction of the cost.
- You don’t want to get stuck– If you like memory foam, but still want to be able to roll out of bed with ease, you may prefer Tomorrow Sleep.
Pick Tempur-Pedic If:
- You know what firmness you want– If you want a very specific level of firmness, one of Tempur-Pedic’s many options will probably align with your desires.
- You want to try before you buy– You can try out Tempur-Pedic mattresses in mattress stores, which means you can get a sense for what you want before committing to a purchase.
- You want your mattress to last a very long time– Both companies build durable mattresses, but I suspect on average Tempur-Pedic mattresses will last longer.
It’s hard to compare the whole Tempur-Pedic line to any online seller of limited models. I hope this rundown of similarities and differences helped you determine which is the better option for you. Please leave any specific questions you may have in the comments.
