Restonic vs. Tempurpedic: Both Product Lines Offer Great Features.
It helps to understand a little bit about Mattresses and Memory Foam before reading about the product lines of Restonic vs. Tempurpedic.
Mattresses are made of multiple layers. The different layers can include fibers, foams, quilting, covers, latex, gel, memory foam, and gel memory foam; it all depends upon the brand.
The layers are referred to most often as the comfort layer (the part of the mattress closest to your body), and the support layer(under the comfort layer), however this is not always clear.
This will be most noticable in the Restonic vs. Tempurpedic information below.
Pay close attention to the composition of each mattress product. The number of layers of each type of material, where they are located, and the thickness of the layers can make a big difference in the support and feel of the mattress.
If present, specifically look at the number of memory foam layer(s); their thickness and location. All of this will impact the feel of the mattress. Also note if they are gel-infused. Gel infused memory foam does a better job of dissipating heat than memory foam alone.
When it comes to sheer volume of memory foam per mattress, (Restonic vs. Tempurpedic), the volume of memory foam is only 1 facet of mattress comfort; other features should be taken into account with equal importance.
Memory Foam: Density
The density (density refers to the memory foams’ weight per cubic foot) of the memory foam determines how well the mattress will support your body. The higher the density, the better the mattress will support your body.
- Higher-priced brands use higher-density memory foam, (and more of it): 5 lbs/ft. or greater
- Brands that are medium-priced use mostly medium density – 4.0 lbs/ft.
- Lower-priced brands will tend to use mostly lower density – 2.5 – 3.0 lbs/ft.
Restonic vs. Tempurpedic: Restonic is not forthcoming with their mattress metrics, therefore you will need to ask your salesperson for this information. Tempurpedic does provide the information on their website.
Memory Foam: The IDL
The quality of a memory foam mattress is also measured by how well the bed deflects indentations. This is called indentation-load deflection, or IDL.
A high IDL indicates a firmer mattress. Most mattresses have an IDL between 10 and 15.
Top-brand mattresses have an IDL between 12 and 15. In most cases, you will need to ask your salesperson for this number.

All Tempurpedic mattresses come with a top cover, made of either a silk blend or a stretch material containing CoolMax® moisture-wicking fabric with antimicrobial treatment, and TEMPUR-Breeze™ Cooling material to draw excess heat away from the body.
