    What didn't you like about it? I have heard they are too warm for some people.

    I found this to be the case with a tempurpedic mattress topper I tried. After a few sweaty nights, I cut it up and used it in my senor dog's bed. He appreciates the extra warmth.

    Are you sure it is a TempurPedic mattress? I have the mattress and I absolutely love it. My old hips just sink in. I have had feather beds and pretty soon you are sleeping in a hole, not with this mattress. It is worth every penny. I will never have another.

    I don't have the Tempur-pedic but a brand that our local furniture store sells. They carried both brands and after spending half the day going back and forth lying on them...couldn't tell the difference. I live mine well enough but it seems I sleep on the couch most of the time...it has down filled pillows!

    Mine does not seem to get hot, but I just don't find it comfortable to sleep on. My hips and back hurt, and yes it is an original tempur-pedic

    I SECOND THAT !! We bought that mattress after giving up our waterbed. DH loves the Temperpedic, but I hate it. I sleep on my side (mostly the left), and my shoulders ache each and every morning. Thank goodness for the shower massage to loosen me up.

    I agree with Murphy1, I love it. My DH doesn't like it. So we have it on out spare bed for visitors. I sometimes go in there and sleep, because it feelsl so good to me.

    We bought a Tempurpedic king size mattress and suffered thru a month before returning it! It was hot and, even worse, we ached in our hips and shoulders. The first three or four nights seemed ok, but after that it didn't seem to offer support in those areas. We were delighted to get rid of it.

    I have one of the knock off's (Bob'o'pedic) and I was having the same issue with the heat. (Especially once I started with hot flashes.) I picked up a thick (About 1-2") cotton topper to put over it and that seemed to solve the heat problem. Other than that I like it and find it very comfortable. Of course our previous mattress was about 20 year old when we got rid of it so anything had to be better.

    Mine was too hot also - my hubby and I would wake up in ball of sweat - I liked the comfort of it - but it bothered hubby's back - we have it in a guest room - we bought one of those air adjustable beds - I did not like that at all - made my back hurt like heck - I slept on it for about 2 1/2 yrs - had a hard time giving it away - nobody wanted it. Finally went back to nice mattress with pillow top - and works great - less cost too.

    I totally agree. I don't find it to be to hot at all. I have had mine for a year and love it. It really is like sleeping on a cloud.

    I don't own a Temper. but I slept on one at a hotel for a few nights. Both my hubby and I were HOT-from the mattress and we didn't like how it felt. We have been thinking about a sleep number--any opinions on that?

    I gave ours away too. I didn't have enough support even thought it was rated firm. I also found it very hot. I'm way past menopause so that wasn't it.
    We have a pillow top now but even it is not enough for my sharp bones. I'm thinking about one of the Wool toppers.

    I found it difficult to move or roll over along with the warmth.

    My DH wanted one so we got one, he really liked it from the get go for awhile so I tollerated it but I hated it right from the beginning. I got very hot and sweaty and the bed was to hard for me and if you got out of the spot you layed in for awile then the rest of the mattress was cold. I ached and hurt every morning when I would get up. After a couple years he decided he didn't like it anymore either so we sold it.
