The TEMPUR-Contour® Collection by TEMPUR-pedic is a notch more luxurious then the TEMPUR-Cloud Collection. It is represented by six models: GrandBed, TEMPUR-Contour Allura, TEMPUR-Contour Rhapsody Luxe, TEMPUR-Contour Rhapsody Breeze, TEMPUR-Contour Signature, and TEMPUR-Contour Select. In 2014, TEMPUR-Rhapsody was been replaced in the Tempur-Pedic listing by Rhapsody Luxe.
Some of the claims made for the TEMPUR-Contour Collection are:
* Tempur-Contour mattresses comform to the sleeper's body
* The mattresses keep on resuming their original shape
* They feel like traditional mattresses
* They minimize transfer of motion from one partner to the other
* Tempur-Contour mattresses provide a more restful sleeping experience
The TEMPUR-Feel™ of the Contour Collection ranges from the Deeply Conforming of the GrandBed, to the Highly Conforming of the Contour Select. What is Tempur-Feel? Here's how Tempur-Pedic describes it: "You’ll feel it the minute you lay down: the unique way TEMPUR® material responds to the curves and weight of your body, actually adjusting to give you custom comfort and support." In other words, Temper-Feel is the users' perceptions of how much the mattress conforms to them.
One model in the Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Contour® Collection (the Rhapsody Breeze) is a "Breeze" mattress, which means the cover and the comfort layer are infused with the TEMPUR-Breeze™ cooling material. This is then augmented by air-channeling in the support and base layers. The intended effect is to provide a cooler sleeping experience to the user.
The base layer in each of the TEMPUR-Contour models uses the AirFlow System, a high-density, high resilience base core-support foam, to not only provide stabilizing support to the above layers, but also to help cool the mattress. The Contour Select uses one 6" AirFlow core, while each of the others uses a 8" combined height Dual AirFlow core.
The recommended foundations for mattresses in the TEMPUR-Contour Collection are (1) the MDF platform base, which comes in two heights (9" and 5") and is covered in fabric compatible with the cover texture and color, and (2) Tempur-Pedic's TEMPUR-Ergo adjustable bases. Each of these foundations has special models for the GrandBed.
GrandBed The top of the line of the Tempur-Contour Collection is the 15' high GrandBed, which boasts a deeply-conforming TEMPUR-Feel. The Grand Bed has not just one, but two comfort layers. The 2" quilted top layer of highly conforming TEMPUR-HD material overlies 1.2" of TEMPUR material. Underlying these are 4" TEMPUR-Support foam and the 8" dual-core Grand AirFlow System. The GrandBed is available only in the larger sizes.
TEMPUR-Contour Allura The second luxury model of the TEMPUR-Contour Collection by Tempurpedic is the highly-comforming TEMPUR-Contour Allura. Like the TEMPUR_Cloud Allura, this model is a pillow-top mattress. The 2" quilted pillow top rests on a 2.8" support layer. At the bottom of the mattress is the Dual AirFlow System base core.
TEMPUR-Rhapsody The deeply conforming TEMPUR-Rhapsody is another luxury mattress. This model has a dual comfort layer, with 1.2" of heavier TEMPUR-Foam over 2.8" of lighter TEMPUR-Foam, Tempur Support Foam, and the Dual AirFlow base layer.
TEMPUR-Rhapsody Breeze The TEMPUR-Rhapsody Breeze is like the TEMPUR-Rhapsody, except that it uses the TEMPUR-Breeze™ cooling technology to add cooling to the Rhapsody feel. It is available in all standard sizes except regular Twin.
TEMPUR-Contour Signature Although at 12" the TEMPUR-Contour Signature is the same height as the Rhapsody models, it is firm with a highly-conforming TEMPUR-Feel. It has a single comfort layer and shares the dual-core AirFlow System with the above models.
TEMPUR-Contour Select The simplest mattress of the TEMPUR-Contour Collection is the TEMPUR-Contour Select, with a comfort layer of TEMPUR material, a TEMPUR-Support layer, and a single Airflow System base core. It is rated as "Highly Conforming." The TEMPUR-Contour Select is available in all the standard mattress sizes.
Mattresses in Tempur-Pedic's TEMPUR-Contour® Collection are available though Sears, Macy's and other online and local retailers. Prices are in the $$$$$ range for the GrandBed and $$$$ for the others (based on the prices for Queen size, mattress only). All mattresses carry a 25-year limited manufacturer's warranty. Additionally, Tempur-Pedic has a 90-night tryout period.
In 2014, Tempur-Pedic revised the Tempur-Contour Collection. They added three models: TEMPUR-Contour™ Supreme, TEMPUR-Contour™ Elite and TEMPUR-Contour™ Rhapsody Luxe. The 13½" Rhapsody Luxe replaces the 12" Tempur-Rhapsody in the models list on the Tempur-Pedic website. The key features are the SmartClimate™ System and the EasyRefresh™ Top Cover. SmartClimate is to control the temperature for coolness. EasyRefresh is fully zippered and removable for washing. All models have received an anti-bacterial treatment.
Changes are also made to the recommended foundations. These, with matching upholstery, now are TEMPUR-Flat Foundation, TEMPUR-Up™ Foundation, TEMPUR-Ergo™ Plus Adjustable Base, and TEMPUR-Ergo™ Premiere Adjustable Base. The TEMPUR-Flat is available in three heights: 9" Standard, 5" Low Profile, and 2" Extra Low. TEMPUR-Up is a new foundation. Essentially, it is the Standard height Flat with a head lift.
In line with changes made by Tempur-Sealy International, new and revised models in the TEMPUR-Contour Collection carry 10-year non-prorated warranties.
Tempur-Pedic describes the Contour Supreme as having "soft-where-you-want-it, firm-where-you-need-it™ comfort and support." The comfort level is Firm, and the TEMPUR-Adapt level (contouring comformity) of this 11½" mattress is Medium (5/8).
This new model is about 12½" high. Tempurpedic touts the Contour Elite as having "more conforming comfort, pressure relief, and adaptive alignment," with a Medium-Firm comfort level and Very Conforming/Adapting (6/8) TEMPUR-Adapt level.
The new Rhapsody Luxe is not only 1½" higher than the Rhapsody, at Medium-Firm it is softer. The TEMPUR-Adapt level is Extra Conforming (7/8).
The lineup of the TEMPUR-Contour Collection has changed since 2014. The Grandbed is in the Special Solutions Collection. And the TEMPUR-Contour Rhapsody Breeze has been replaced by the new TEMPUR-Contour Elite Breeze. The new TEMPUR-Contour Collection listing is:
