Getting a new mattress is a once-in-a-decade thrill, marking a new era for your sleep quality, health, and perhaps even overall health and life expectancy. It’s comfy, soft, and brand-new. But what happens after the box is gone, the sheets are on, and a few months of Z’s have gone by? The Tempur-Pedic LuxeAdapt mattress promises the ultimate pressure relief for sleepers who crave a soft yet supportive experience. However, as we all know, soft mattresses do not often age well. Does the LuxeAdapt stand up to nightly use, and does it truly offer a soft feel while prioritizing back health? Pour yourself a mug of sleepytime tea and read on to see.

The Tempur-Pedic LuxeAdapt

In the fluffy, bouncy world of mattresses, everyone is Goldilocks (yes, even you) and their preferences matter- a lot. If you spotted our review of the similarly luxurious TempurPedic ProBreeze but thought it sounded a bit too firm and not quite suited to a not-especially-hot sleeper, the LuxeAdapt may be more your style. The top tier of the TempurPedic ProAdapt line, the LuxeAdapt offers maximum pressure relief and is 30% more body-conforming compared with the original Tempur and ProAdapt models. Think of it like Mama Bear’s bed, but completely updated with top-of-the-line technology designed to keep softness lovers comfy for years.

The details

TempurPedic is famous for making layered mattresses designed to pinpoint specific sleeping needs and wants. The LuxeAdapt is aimed at pleasing those who want a soft experience, whether it’s because they suffer from back pain and leg aches, sleep on their side most of the time, or just prefer a more yielding, cloud-like feel. The Smartclimate dual cover system works to keep sleeping temperatures balanced because even folks who don’t consider themselves hot sleepers hate to wake up sweaty.

Tempur Comfort layers deliver that signature soft yet structured cushioning, supported by the special APR+ layer. True to its name, the LuxeAdapt is designed to adapt to changing body positions all throughout the night and almost eliminate motion transfer. Its adaptive, open-cell structure and cooling, removable (and washable) cover also helps regulate sleeping temps while conforming to the body. These practical touches help ensure the longevity of the plush LuxeAdapt.

The delivery

Anyone who has wrestled a mattress upstairs or out of a rectangular box knows what a dusty and tiring job it is. Not only is it difficult, but not every consumer is able to perform feats of strength. Well, forget all of that and tell your friends they’re off the hook because Tempur-Pedic mattresses come with high-end white-glove delivery, meaning the delivery personnel will not only remove all packaging but will help situate your new mattress just where you want it. This, along with the 90-day risk-free trial and ten-year guaranteed warranty, is part of what makes the TempurPedic experience a cut above competitors.

How does it measure up?

Over the course of many months of regular use by two people, we can say definitively that the LuxeAdapt holds up extremely well. The mattress delivers a luxurious “sinking into bed” sensation that Mama Bear bed fans will love, and it definitely feels like a reward at the end of a long day. Amazingly, even in light of this cushioning, there is no “mushy” feeling of slipping off of the edges of the bed. It’s as comfortable to sit on the side as it is to sink into the center. Delivery made unboxing a snap, and there was no off-gassing or industrial smell when it first arrived. It is, unfortunately, very heavy. Motion transfer, always an issue for those sharing a bed, is almost eliminated, and the temperature balances are great on hot summer nights.

The verdict

The TempurPedic LuxeAdapt is, without a doubt, a well-designed and high-end mattress. It especially suits couples, side sleepers, and those who want a more enveloping and soft mattress texture. TempurPedic offers them in various sizes and split models, to offer even more specific customized comfort. It is, of course, on the high end of the mattress pricing spectrum, and while you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck, plus delivery, unboxing, and an impressive warranty, the cost may be an issue. The LuxeAdapt delivers the indulgently plush feeling of a soft mattress without sacrificing spine and back health. This soft, sinking-in feeling withstands the test of time, eliminating worries about the “waterfall” effect felt by sitting on the edge, motion transfer, or changes to appearance over time. If you’re looking to invest serious money in your sleep, (and doctors tend to agree that you should), the TempurPedic LuxeAdapt will feel just right.

When it comes to working out, some things are nearly universal -- we all love the satisfying feeling after completing a hard workout. We're filled with pride and confidence when we break a personal record or achieve something we didn’t know was possible. However, other parts of fitness are somewhat divisive. For example, some people love running, while others despise it; similarly, some people dread their workouts, while others count down the minutes until work is over and they can hit the gym.
Another aspect of fitness that tends to be rather polarizing is stretching: Some people love to stretch, while others will only be seen stretching or working on flexibility in the rare times when they are feeling extreme tightness or fending off an injury. However, whether you love it or hate it, stretching offers quite a few benefits and can be an important part of a well-rounded fitness program. If you need some motivation to slow down and stretch, keep reading for the top benefits of stretching.

Types of stretching
When many people think of “stretching,” they picture someone standing up and pulling one foot towards their butt to stretch the quads or some other iteration of a classic static stretch. However, the world of stretching has evolved quite a bit since the days of holding basic static stretches in PE class. There are several types of stretching, each with its primary purpose and set of benefits.
