It occurred to me a couple of years ago that I was still sleeping on my mattress from high school. I was 31. This mattress was nothing special. It was part of those $299 bedroom sets you often find at heavily discounted furniture stores. In high school, I could’ve slept on a rock and gotten a good night’s sleep. As an adult, I can’t fall asleep without drinking chamomile tea, spraying a lavender sheet spray, and turning a fan on. In addition, I was getting very adult-y back pain I got from the crater on my mattress, it occurred to me that I needed to get a new mattress. I was making some money for the first time in my life and while I think furniture is overpriced, I knew that I wanted to spend some money on a good quality mattress. I settled on the Tempur Cloud Luxe Breeze 2.0 made by Tempur-Pedic.
In the Tempur Cloud series, they only have 2 to chose from: Cloud Supreme Breeze and Cloud Luxe Breeze. Luxe is much softer than Supreme. The Tempur Cloud Luxe Breeze is one of the softest beds in the Tempur-pedic line. When I first laid on it at the store, it was very soft, but when I got it, it didn’t feel as soft as the one in the store. My friend told me I had to “break it in.” Huh? The material is still kind of packed, so I had to knead it to break it in, make it softer. For once in my life, it was okay to jump on my bed. I was breaking it in! I did that for a few weeks and noticed it was getting the cloudy softness I was expecting.
So I broke in my Tempur Cloud Luxe Breeze 2.0 and it’s soft as a cloud, of course it’s comfortable! It is literally like sinking into a cloud of bliss. And the cooling effect of the bed is instantly noticed. It’s not like sleeping on an ice pack. Rather, it’s just kind of a breezy feeling. I hate waking up sweaty. I haven’t encountered that since I got this mattress.
Tempur-Pedic is one of the premier mattress brands on the market, and this bed was definitely not cheap. At $5,299 for a Tempur-Pedic Cloud Luxe Breeze 2.0 in King, it’s a tough pill to swallow. But consider that you spend a ⅓ of your life in bed and health problems can occur from bad quality sleep or sleeping on a bad mattress. It’s an investment in your well being. The mattress comes with a 10-year full replacement limited warranty.
Hands down, one of the best mattresses available. Most people keep their Tempur-Pedic mattresses for 20-30 years. I’ve stayed in a few hotels around the country since I’ve had my Tempur Cloud Luxe Breeze, and I can truthfully say my bed is always superior.
