Sealy Response Mattress Review

A family puts the sheets on a Sealy Response

Are you considering a traditional Sealy Response innerspring mattress? Response mattresses offer pocketed coil beds at two levels. We’ve organized and reviewed the collections, and rated the top models, for your better understanding.

Sealy Collections

The Response line is just one of Sealy's collections. View all the collection comparisons and details.

  1. Response- traditional innerspring ($379 - $1,049)
  2. Conform - memory foam ($749 - $1,999)
  3. Hybrid - innerspring/memory foam ($1,099 - $2,299)
  4. Posturepedic Plus - high-end innersprings with zoning ($999-$1,299)

The above prices are for the Queen size models, not the entire size range.

Type of Construction

Sealy Response mattresses use a traditional pocketed coil design (there is one all-foam model). Sealy has always been known for making their Posturepedic innerspring beds, and they’re still at the heart of Sealy today.

Overview Sealy Response Mattresses

There are now two levels in the collection. The previous top-tier Premium collection has been replaced by the Sealy Posturepedic Plus line.

Sealy Response Performance Collection - from $529 (queen) and up, this part of the Response mattress line up falls in the mid-range of prices. These mattresses move beyond barebones beds and begin to introduce Sealy’s better features, including Posturepedic Technology. This includes the Encased Coil innerspring and DuraFlex Edge support. This collection represents a solid value in a quality mattress.

Sealy Response Essential Collection - from $379 (queen) and up, is the entry-level in the Response mattress line up. As the name suggests, the mattresses have your basic needs in mind and offer decent beds at lower prices. Even in this lower-priced collection, they include pocketed coils and good edge support along with other quality materials. (The cheapest model is an all-foam model.)

Conclusion

Sealy Response mattresses include a wide variety of beds so it’s hard to generalize whether they'll work for you. It depends on whether you find a fit within the collection.

Depending on your budget, there are a number of beds that we rate as solid Recommends. The top 5 listed above are really good and there are some others that share their names in different comforts that also rated well. The Cooper Mountain mattress, for example, offers strong value in the Performance Collection and comes in several different comfort levels. Once you narrow down the comfort you like, firm or pillow top, etc., you can see the pressure testing results for your body type. Most of the body size/sleeping positions tested well.

In general, we can say these mattresses represent reasonable choices for you to consider. They’re the main products from one of the largest mattress brands in America, so they come from a trustworthy source. And the feature-value they offer is fair too.
