Sealy has been a leading mattress company for decades and its founding goes back to 1881 in – you guessed it - Sealy, Texas. It’s now part of Tempur-Sealy Intl., the largest mattress maker in the world. Sealy mattress prices span from the mid to upper end.

Type of Construction

Sealy is a broad-ranging mattress manufacturer, so they make all kinds of mattresses including innerspring, all-foam, and hybrid mattresses. Their comfort layer provides comfort from the top layer to the bottom. Their mattresses are always built to be durable. Most mattresses have some sort of cooling technology, making them great for hot sleepers.

An Overview of Sealy Mattress Collections

Sealy has a range of collections to suit different needs and price points. Each collection also has a variety of price points within it. If a model includes "Posturepedic" in the name, that means it has added back support in the center third of the mattress with Posturepedic Technology™.

Sealy Mattress Collection Comparisons & Key Features

Essentials

Their entry-level collection of innerspring mattresses for people shopping on a budget has some nice qualities. There are a good number of options with different comfort levels, heights, and a few price points. They have open coil support systems, which are not as great as the individually wrapped coils in higher-end models, but they are durable and supportive. This does mean they are not compatible for use with an adjustable base.

The inclusion of gel foam is what brings these mattresses up a notch. Gel foam is more cooling, durable, and conforming than most polyurethane foam, so it's a definite bonus to have. There are some euro top and pillow top options for those who are a fan of that style.

Posturepedic Spring

Next up from Essentials in the innerspring category is the Posturepedic line. These are still starting off in a very affordable range, with one model keeping the same Sealy Response Open Coil System and the rest upgrading to encased coils. Some have the Sealy Response Encased Coil while others have the Sealy Response Pro Encased Coil. The difference is that the Pro coils are barrel-shaped, which improves the support a bit.

An encased coil system is more conforming and provides more targeted support. It also helps reduce the transfer of motion across the bed, very helpful if you have a sleep partner, kids, or pets that join you. The Posturepedic support in most of these mattresses comes from a bar of gel foam added to the center third to reinforce the lower back area. Most of them have coil edge support although a few have foam encasements. All the mattresses in this line feature SurfaceGuard Technology with MoistureProtect, which helps them last longer by protecting the foams from breaking down prematurely.

Posturepedic Hybrid

The Posturepedic Hybrid collection demonstrates how Sealy has excelled at hybrid mattresses. They're very focused on developing the newest, most cutting-edge sleep technology. The hybrids combine the support of their innerspring coil designs with an advanced foam layer. This is how the mattress offers both the reactive feel of an innerspring support system and the contouring feel of memory foam mattresses. These mattresses are reliable for side sleepers and back sleepers. If you're considering a hybrid mattress, you should 100% check out the models from Sealy.

The model names match up to the Posturepedic Foam collection, so there is a hybrid version of each one. They range from medium-firm to medium-soft. Two of them feature the Response Encased Coil system and SurfaceGuard Technology with MoistureProtect, the other two have the upgraded Response Pro Encased Coil system with a SealyChill cover. All of them feature varying layers of gel foam and memory foam. They also have SealySupport Foam above the coil system for additional support, comfort, and durability. There is coil edge support on every model as well.

Posturepedic Foam

The Sealy Posturepedic Foam collection is comprised of four models, most of them quite firm with only one softer option. The Lacey models have an upgraded cover with SealyChill, and all the models have SurfaceGuard Technology. They use SealySupport Foam as the core of support with some softer layers of gel foam and premium memory foam on top to provide a conforming feel.

They have the same aesthetic as the Posturepedic Foam line and the model names match up, with similar comfort layers. These just do not have any coils in them and instead use a foam core for support.

Posturepedic Plus Hybrid

A Posturepedic Plus Hybrid mattress (dark gray with white squiggly patterns on the cover) rests on a black box spring and a gray bed with wood legs. It's in a natural room with bright lighting and some eclectic accessories.

These are Sealy's top-of-the-line hybrid mattresses, coming in five different options. They range from firm to plush, so you have plenty of different comfort levels to choose from. The least expensive model features the Sealy Response Pro HD Encased Coil, which has more coils than the one below it (Sealy Response Pro Encased Coil). The rest of them have Sealy Response Pro Zoned HD Encased Coils, which include additional coils in the center third for excellent back support.

The additional coils in this line make it more conforming and supportive than the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid line. Each model features the DuraFlex Pro Edge, which is made up of ventilated coils, the best type of edge support available. They have plenty of premium memory foam and gel foam above the coil system. The base support foam in these is SealySupport Gel Base Foam, so it has the gel added, which makes them more durable, cool, and pressure relieving. These mattresses are super conforming and do a great job at cooling. They managed to create a line of hybrids with great support and amazing pressure relief.

Posturepedic Plus Foam

The Posturepedic Plus Foam mattresses are their high-end all-foam beds with luxurious memory foam and gel foam. Starting with the cover, they all feature SurfaceGuard and SealyChill. They have the same foam layers as the Posturepedic Plus Hybrid line but they do not have a coil system. Instead, they use the SealySupport Gel Base Foam as the core of support.

These mattresses are super pressure-relieving and conforming, and they excel in cooling. All the gel foam prevents them from feeling hot whatsoever. They are high-quality memory foam mattresses.
