Why not buy a tempur mattress
Hey Ari. In my relentless search last night, I stumbled upon a company called The Mattress Factory and they seem to have the density of the comfort layers, but not the base layers. Of course, there are no figures for the newer Adapt models, but all of the more recent older models are on there.
Thank you for that information about Jordan's Furniture. Historically Jordans had listed all of the detailed specifications, and we are disappointed that they have changed this on all of their mattress products.
Of course, we don't know the exact reasons Jordans changed their policy regarding product specifications. Generally speaking, there are a variety of reasons why retailers and manufacturers choose this direction; they have reduced specs and do not want to communicate this, some feel they do not want their competition to know these details, some may not want to answer consumers, etc.
Either way, it is another clear signal why consumers should use the TMU members to search and purchase a new mattress. We will continue to keep track of these trends and will be starting a new topic to track this data. Thank you again for the heads up.
I found another website that lists the density specs for the Cloud and Contour series mattresses, though they don't list the specs for the Breeze models. It's mathisbrothers.com. The other site is that I mentioned earlier is themattressfactoryinc.com.
I was under the impressions that the Cloud Supreme had a 2" ES layer on top of a 2" Tempur layer, but that is for the Cloud Supreme Breeze. Seems the Cloud Supreme has always had a 1.2" ES layer and a 2.75" Tempur layer. The Mathis Brothers site helped a lot. The Mattress factory site was good as well, but included many breeze models and not the standard models.
Hope this helps folks!
Hahaha! I'm sure these sites will eventually stop posting them, especially as the models are phased out. It sucks to think that in the near future, it may become impossible for anyone to ever know what makes up a Tempur-Pedic mattress. Honestly, I may even give the Relief-Mart versions a shot in the future, just for being so forthcoming about their specs.
Hey 560andsising and Ari,
Thank you as always for the updates regarding specs, it will seem to continue to be up to the individual retail organizations to decide if they will update specs. The team at TMU is continually working on different formats to provide as many updated specs as possible...another reason we will continue to move as many people as possible toward our members. Thanks again.

Well make sure whatever you buy has a return policy. You know In a week or 2 if something really sucks bad
Hey Ari! We're gonna hold off on getting a new mattress, but will definitely be getting something with a return policy when we do purchase. Until we figure out our firmness preference, it will be wise to have recourse.
