A Good Night’s Sleep with Tempur-Pedic!

by Kay Lynn

Mr. Boomer and I have upgraded our sleep experience the last three weeks.  Remember that new bedroom set I got a few week ago? The bed frame is now home to a new TEMPUR-Contour Signature mattress and Advanced Ergo Adjustable Base from Tempur-Pedic.

Our Sleep Experience

It’s true that sleep disturbances are more common as you age.  With our old mattress, it wasn’t uncommon to have 1-2 nights a week where at least one of us wasn’t able to get a good night’s sleep.  It could be because the dog was jumping up and down from the bed, one of us went to the bathroom, hot flashes or just because we had an old, uncomfortable mattress.

Our new Tempur-Pedic Mattress System

Whatever the reason, it seemed unusual to sleep the entire night!  Now, we’re both in dreamland all night.  What a pleasure to wake up refreshed and ready for the day!  My back no longer hurts from a mattress that didn’t provide the right support.

Even our dog prefers the new mattress.  Charger has abandoned his doggie bed on the floor and is sometimes in the bed before we are.  He stretches out and seems to really be enjoying the support of the cushion layer.

I am no longer awakened by my husband (or dog) getting in and out of the bed.  You’ve probably seen the commercial where the wine glass is set on one side of the bed and someone jumps up and down and the wine doesn’t spill.  I haven’t specifically done THAT, but the motion does not transfer!

The adjustable base is a luxury we’re still getting used to, but quickly!  We love it for reading in bed and not ending up with a pain in the neck.  The massaging feature is probably not something we’ll use much but it’s fun.

TEMPUR-Contour Signature Mattress  & Advanced Ergo Adjustable Base

I now know why Tempur-Pedics are the most highly recommended beds in America; but let me tell you more about the specifics!  The 12 inch mattress combines the famous Tempur-Pedic support with a thick TEMPUR comfort layer for proper alignment and truly restful sleep.  Highlights include:

  • Comfort layer lightly cushions your body for a firm supportive feel
  • Minimizes pressure points to relieve discomfort, reducing tossing and turning for better quality sleep
  • Supports and aligns your body so you fully relax for more restful sleep
  • Optimal air flow and breathability responds to your body so you sleep comfortably
  • Reduces motion transfer between sleep partners for uninterrupted sleep
  • Returns to its original shape time after time, and ensures 20 years of use (there’s a 20 year limited warranty!)

The TEMPUR Advanced Ergo base puts you in control: a virtually unlimited number of ergonomic rest positions and rejuvenating massage. The wireless remote lets you control movement from the comfort of your bed.  Features include:

  • Virtually unlimited head and foot positions increase comfort, improve relaxation, help breathing and relieve stress on your lower back
  • 70° upright angle makes it easy to read, watch TV, or use a laptop
  • Wall-hugging design keeps you near the nightstand
  • Single button to automatically return mattress to the flat position
  • Memory buttons store up to 4 memory positions
  • Head and foot massage with rolling wave feature
  • Wireless remote works without pointing it directly at the receiver
  • Bed can be lowered during power outage or remote failure

You can Have a Tempur-Pedic Too!

If you’re in the market for a new mattress set, check out the Tempur-Pedic products.  One lucky reader won’t have to buy their own TEMPUR-Contour Mattress and Advanced Ergo Adjustable base.  I’ll be back with more on that later this week.  Until then, try to get a good night’s sleep.  I know I will sleeping well!


Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Tempur-Pedic to help promote the TEMPUR-Contour Signature mattress and Advanced Ergo Adjustable Base.  This includes compensation for my time commitment to the program including writing about my experience and hosting a contest where the prize has been provided by Tempur-Pedic. All opinions stated are my 100% mine!

I wrote about this last week. Well, not about the brand, but the overall expense. I find it hard to believe that people will cheap out on something they spend almost a third of their lives doing. Of course, the Tempur-Pedic may be a bit out of some people’s price range, but that doesn’t mean they should go for the cheapest mattress available to them.

Kay Lynn August 18, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Eric, I agree that this is something that it is important to have quality and not cheap out. Another is shoes.

Eric J. Nisall August 18, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Yeah, I don’t know how women can wear some of those things.

Who wouldn’t want a good night of sleep? I understand the tempur-pedic retains heat. In other words tends to be warmer in summer versus in winter. Is that true?

Kay Lynn August 18, 2011 at 12:19 pm

We haven’t found it any warmer than our old mattress. It does feel denser (if that makes sense), so maybe that’s why people think it retains heat.

I cannot wait to here more about your contest 🙂

Kay Lynn August 18, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Tomorrow, it will all be revealed! 🙂

Danielle Liss August 15, 2011 at 12:45 pm

I just nominated you for 19 awards before I found out about the contest. So, I need to go back and change that form to make it 25.

After years of back-aches, we bought a new mattress also. It is heaven, even though it’s not a memory foam type mattress. I’m so glad you are enjoying yours. There’s nothing like a good night’s sleep!

Kay Lynn August 18, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Maggie, we have been talking about buying a new mattress for two years so I’m glad this opportunity to try the Tempur-Pedic system came along or we’d still be suffering!

Marie at FAmilyMoneyValues August 16, 2011 at 9:18 am

Sounds great! I could use that feature where the movement doesn’t transfer as I flip around like a fish out of water for at least 30 minutes before I can get to sleep!

Kay Lynn August 18, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Marie, it’s amazing how the rest of the bed doesn’t move; obviously related to the construction but still seems awful special.

Lisa @ Wallet Watcher August 18, 2011 at 10:26 am

I can attest to the fact that the Tempur-Pedic is an awesome mattress! I live in the Colorado mountains where we have weather ranging from -18 in the winter to 95 degrees on some summer days, even at 8,482 feet above sea level! Since I’ve been using the tempurpedic mattress, I’ve never slept better.

@krantcents – my opinion is no… the mattress isn’t warmer in the summer. I don’t believe it retains heat. We still use lighter blankets in the summer and a down comforter in the winter – like with our previous mattress.
Great article, @Kay Lynn!

Our mattress while one of our single most expensive purchases this far in life (right behind the house and car..) is something I would do again in a heartbeat! It’s so important to have a good mattress and get good sleep..

We all need a good night sleep and something that supports our backs Wake up refreshed and no lower back pain is a perfect way to start the day.
