Pressure Test Results

We’ve pressure tested the Premium Silver Chill 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)

This mattress tested reasonably well, providing sufficient contouring and support for most body sizes and sleeping positions. Contouring is important to help spread your body weight over the mattress to minimize pressure points that can cause discomfort and lead to tossing and turning. The mattress also provided good support that helps keep your spine in alignment so you don’t wake up with a sore back.

When tested with a small person, sleeping on the back, the mattress did not perform well. The main issue was that the body weight was not spread out over the mattress. Weight was concentrated in less area because this is a firm mattress that doesn’t give much for a smaller body type. However, if you like a firm mattress then you’d probably not be bothered by this since you like are harder surface anyway.

Conclusion

This mattress tested decently when we put it through our process. It’s a firm mattress, so first and foremost you need to have a preference for a hard feeling mattress to consider the Sealy Silver Chill Firm. For most body types and positions the mattress provided good contouring and support. The only problem our testing identified was with a smaller body type, which we attributed to the lighter weight on the hard surface (which comes down to a personal preference issue).

In general, these Sealy Hybrid beds have very robust features. The Silver Chill is part of the top-end Premium line so it has the cool-to-the-touch cover. This kind of cover is newer on the market and generally found on more expensive mattresses. This cover can help you stay cool and reduce heat buildup. That being said, if price is important you can get the same main features in less expensive Performance mattresses minus the cool-to-the-touch cover.
