The softest Tempur-ProAdapt will be the ideal option for most side sleepers of lightweight (less than 130 pounds) and average weight (130-230 pounds). They’ll sink into the top layers of foam and get the pressure relief they need around their shoulder and hips. Heavyweight (230 pounds or more) side sleepers will sink too deeply into the Tempur-ProAdapt and likely favor a firmer option.
Lightweight back sleepers will fare well with the Tempur-ProAdapt’s softest model, but average and heavyweight individuals will want to skip right over. Back sleepers need a sleep surface that won’t sink too much and throw off their spinal alignment. While soft foams can be comfortable, sinking into them for elongated periods will leave them with back pain.
Because the TEMPUR memory foam conforms very closely to the body, lightweight back sleepers will find the support they need in the Tempur-ProAdapt.
Stomach sleepers will want to skip the soft version of the Tempur-ProAdapt. They will not find the support they need and are better off with firmer models.
Tempur-ProAdapt (Medium All Foam)
Light and average-weight side sleepers will love the medium all-foam Tempur-ProAdapt mattress. They’ll have no trouble sinking into the comfort and transition layers of foam, and their hips and shoulders will get the necessary support. Heavier side sleepers might find the medium to be a little too soft.
Lightweight back sleepers will get the most out of this mattress. It’s firm enough to give them the support they need while contouring to their body for added comfort. Average-weight back sleepers will find adequate support but may prefer something on the firmer side. Heavyweight back sleepers will be more interested in the Tempur-ProAdapt Hybrid.
Like back sleepers, lightweight stomach sleepers will get comfort out of this mattress but may prefer something firmer. Average and heavyweight stomach sleepers should still skip over. All three weight classes will be better off with the Hybrid version or considering other brands.
Tempur-ProAdapt (Medium Hybrid)
Side Sleepers weighing under 130 pounds will enjoy the Tempur-ProAdapt medium hybrid. Average weight and heavyweight side sleepers will also enjoy this model but may prefer its all-foam counterpart.
The Tempur-ProAdapt Hybrid is better suited for back sleepers when compared to its all-foam sibling. The polyfoam-encased coils will aid in supporting their spine. They won’t sink too deep into the mattress, and the TEMPUR foam transition layer should keep them from touching the base layer of coils.
Heavyweight back sleepers might still find this mattress to be a little too soft.
Lightweight stomach sleepers can get comfortable on this Tempur-ProAdapt. However, the stomach-sleeper jury is still out. Based on reviews, most stomach sleepers will want to shop around for more firm hybrid mattresses.
This Tempur-ProAdapt is best for heavyweight side sleepers. They’ll be able to sink into the denser foams while finding the pressure relief they require. Lightweight side sleepers won’t sink enough and will prefer one of the softer models. The same goes for average-weight side sleepers closer to 130 pounds.
Average and heavyweight back sleepers will get the most use out of this mattress. They’ll sleep on a supportive plane, and their back should stay in line as the foams contour to their bodies. Lightweight back sleepers might find this mattress to be a little too firm.
The firmest Tempur-ProAdapt is the best all-around option for stomach sleepers of every weight class. The firm foams won’t cause your hips to sink, thus throwing your back out of alignment. Lightweight stomach sleepers might prefer the medium feel, but it’s up to them.
