Compared to other Tempur-Flex mattresses, the Elite is the softest, allowing your body to sink deeper into their Tempur material. It also features a removable fabric cover, something which isn’t found in the Prima, the least expensive of the Flex line.
If you’re looking for a mattress on the softer side, something you can sink into but still have decent support, the Elite seems to be something you might enjoy. People who tend to sweat during sleep may also find some benefit to this mattress. If not, however, you may end up paying extra for some things you don’t need.
Just for clarity’s sake, it’s important to note the Tempur-Flex line is right in the middle of the firmness level for Tempurpedic mattresses. If super softness is your jam, you’ll want to look toward the Tempur-Cloud line. For a firmer mattress, the Tempur-Contour line is what you need.
