More Questions?

  • The Essential is a special edition model that was previously only sold in select retailers. It’s now available on tempurpedic.com for the first time ever and for a limited time — or while supplies last.

  • The Tempur-Pedic Essential™ Soft mattress features a medium-soft feel. Similar to our TEMPUR-Cloud Prima® and TEMPUR-Adapt® Medium, all three models feature our Original TEMPUR® Material and TEMPUR-ES® (Extra Soft) Material.

  • The Tempur-Pedic Essential™ Firm mattress is similar to our TEMPUR-ProAdapt® Firm, Contour™ Select and Contour™ Supreme mattresses, all three models feature two layers of Original TEMPUR® Material for contouring support.

  • The TEMPUR-Essential™ is covered by our 10-Year Limited Warranty, so you can sleep worry-free for a full decade on your new mattress. However, the TEMPUR-Essential™ is a closeout model that is final sale and is not eligible for the 90-Night Sleep Trial offered with our non-closeout mattresses.

  • We encourage you to buy a foundation when you buy your mattress; it provides the solid base your mattress requires to do its job properly. If you choose not to purchase our foundation, you must position the mattress on a completely flat, solid surface with adequate center support. Do not use the mattress with a conventional box spring. Please note that using the mattress without a Tempur-Pedic foundation or similar firm, solid-surface, non-spring base may void the warranty.
