Tempur-Pedic Pro Breeze Review 2024: Classic Memory Feel That Will Keep You Cool – CNET



Tempur-Pedic Pro Breeze

Tempur-Pedic is easily one of the recognizable mattress brands and popularized using memory foam as a comfort material in mattresses and Tempur-Pedic has been around for a long time. The brand has traditionally been brick-and-mortar focused but now has a similar online buying experience to online-only brands.

There is no getting around the fact that Tempur-Pedic is an expensive brand. Even its most affordable bed is more expensive than a lot of beds that we test. The Breeze mattresses are the most expensive mattresses from Tempur-Pedic, and even though the Pro Breeze is more affordable than the Luxe Breeze, that doesn’t mean it’s affordable in general. Know that if you’re interested in this bed or Tempur-Pedic as a brand, you need to have a decent amount of money to spend on it, especially if you want the best cooling options.

We sometimes see these beds go on sale, especially around major holidays like Black Friday, Independence Day and President’s Day, so make sure to look at our mattress deals page to see the latest.

Tempur Pro Breeze mattress policies

Free shipping

You won’t be paying any extra upfront cost for shipping the Pro Breeze mattress, but its delivery method is quite a bit different than most beds. It might still arrive in a box, but it won’t be rolled packed in plastic, and a local delivery team will do all the heavy lifting to set up the bed and will even take away your old mattress if you want them to. 

90-night trial 

All TEMPUR-Pedic mattresses come with a slightly shorter than standard 90-night trial period to determine if you actually like the mattress and want to keep it long-term. 

Keep in mind that it can take a month or longer for your body to adjust to a new mattress, no matter how well-suited it is to your sleeping preferences. It took about a month and a half for me to get used to sleeping on this bed, and I knew in the first two months that I wouldn’t be replacing it, so I think 90 nights is enough, but other brands do offer longer trials. 

Return policy

At any point after the first 30 nights post-delivery you decide the mattress isn’t for you for any reason, you can return it and get a refund minus a return fee of at least $175, which is steeper than what we usually see with brands that don’t have free returns.


All Tempur-Pedic mattresses, including the Pro Breeze, are backed by a standard 10-year warranty. If you buy a mattress online, a 10-year warranty is the minimum you should expect.

Final verdict

Jonathan Gomez/CNET

The Tempur Pro Breeze is undoubtedly an exceptional mattress for anyone seeking out a classic memory foam feel. Due to the high price, this mattress is best suited to specific people, especially hot sleepers. 

You can get the same type of feel and firmness from much more affordable mattresses like the Tempur Adapt and the Pro Adapt that don’t sleep quite as cool, but are solidly good for the majority of people and can save you over a thousand dollars. You are really spending up for the cooling factor on the Pro Breeze mattress, and if cooling features aren’t important to you, then the Pro Breeze doesn’t make sense. 

For hot sleepers who are looking for a memory foam mattress and are interested in a trusted, decades-old mattress brand and have a larger mattress shopping budget, then the Pro Breeze is one of the best options on the market. 

You might like the Tempur Pro Breeze mattress if:

  • You enjoy the feel of memory foam
  • You are a hot sleeper looking for cooling features
  • You want a mattress from a longstanding brand
  • You are a light sleeper who wants excellent motion isolation

You might not like the Tempur Pro Breeze mattress if:

  • You don’t like memory foam
  • You want a firm or a soft mattress (it only comes in a medium)
  • You are shopping on a tight budget

Other mattresses from Tempur-Pedic

Tempur Cloud: This mattress is the most affordable bed in the Tempur-Pedic lineup. It features the same dense memory foam feel as the Pro Breeze and comes in a medium and medium hybrid model. The biggest difference between the Cloud and the rest of the Tempur-Pedic mattress is that it is shipped roll-packed in plastic and inside of a large bag as opposed to white glove delivery. It is Tempur-Pedic’s answer to other bed-in-a-box brands. The Tempur Cloud also doesn’t feature any noticeable cooling factor and sleeps somewhat warm, in my opinion.

Tempur Luxe Breeze: This mattress is the enhanced version of the Pro Breeze and is the most high-end mattress available from Tempur-Pedic. The biggest difference between the Pro and the Luxe is that the Luxe features three different firmness options: a soft, a medium and a firm (along with a medium hybrid). The Luxe is also supposed to have a stronger cooling factor, up to ten degrees cooler instead of five. Having tested them both, I do think the Luxe Breeze is slightly cooler, but the most significant difference is the firmness options. 

How does the Tempur Pro Breeze compare to similar mattresses?

Pro Breeze vs. Loom & Leaf

Loom & Leaf is the premium memory foam option available from the brand Saatva. It has a more responsive memory foam feel in comparison to the Pro Breeze mattress, thanks to its quilted pillow top design, but you still get a nice sink-in quality. The Pro Breeze has a much stronger cooling factor. The Loom & Leaf mattress does have a cooling strip in the center third of the mattress to improve temperature regulation, but it can’t compete with the Pro Breeze in this category. Loom & Leaf also comes in two firmness options; both of them do feel pretty firm.

Pro Breeze vs. GhostBed Luxe

The GhostBed Luxe is the premium, cooling memory foam option available from the brand GhostBed. It is roughly the same firmness as the Tempur Pro Breeze and has a similar feel, although the Pro Breeze is more classic memory foam, and the GhostBed Luxe has a more responsive feel thanks to its quilted pillow-top. I find the Pro Breeze mattress to have a stronger cooling factor, but the GhostBed Luxe does a great job of keeping you cool throughout the night. GhostBed is also the more affordable brand in comparison to Tempur-Pedic. 

Tempur-Pedic Pro Breeze mattress FAQs

Yes, Tempur-Pedic stores exist in many areas in the US and can be found at other physical mattress stores.

Does the Pro Breeze mattress sleep cool?

Yes, as long as you both agree on a dense memory foam feel, all Tempur-Pedic beds have excellent motion isolation, which is great for couples.
