Tuft & Needle’s proprietary foam works to draw heat from your body and disperse it out of the mattress. It’s ideal for sleepers of any size or weight because the more pressure you put on it, the more it reacts to support you.

  1. Top layer – Adaptive® foam designed to carry heat away from your body and adapt to your movements while you sleep
  2. Cover – light and airy fabric promotes heat transfer through the mattress
  3. Bottom layer – foundation foam, provides support and structure
