Pressure Test Results

We pressure tested the Copper II Hybrid Firm mattress with petite, average and large body size people on their sides and back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test)

The Copper II Firm generally tested well, except for petite side sleepers. The mattress provided good contouring support which is helpful in reducing pressure points. Pressure points can cause discomfort, leading you to toss and turn, which interrupts good quality sleep. For petite side sleepers, the mattress proved too firm causing increased pressure points resulting in poor test result scores. As for all back sleepers, the Copper 2 Firm demonstrated support in key areas such as the lower back or side of the chest.

Even with a firmer feeling bed like this model, the memory foam top and innerspring support achieve the Hybrid result of a memory foam feeling top with traditional spring support.

Conclusion

The Sealy Copper 2 Firm Hybrid mattress tested reasonably well for most sleep situations. It’s only in the case of the smaller, petite side sleeper that we do not recommend the mattress. All other sleep situations are good.

Even though the mattress is made for people that prefer a firm mattress, it still demonstrated good contouring and support. Those results suggest most sleepers who love a firm mattress will enjoy this bed. Those who prefer a softer feel may want to check out the sister model, the Copper II Plush.

The Copper 2 mattress is in the “Performance Line” of Sealy’s Hybrid collection of mattresses, which is just below the top-level Premium line. The Copper 2 does include most of what you’ll find in the premium models except for the cool cover materials. Therefore the Copper 2 may not cool as well as the more expensive models priced above it. That being said, if heat is not a serious concern or you just want to save money, this can be a good choice.
