Sealy Posturepedic Mattresses FAQs

  1. Do I need to flip my Posturepedic mattress?

    No, Posturepedic mattresses are built from the bottom up and are not designed to be flipped. If you like to rotate your mattress every so often, you can do that.

  2. Can I finance my Posturepedic mattress?

    Absolutely! On the US-Mattress site, you can finance a Posturepedic mattress with Synchrony HOME, Affirm, or Paypal.

  3. How does the 120-night trial period work?

    Try the mattress for at least 30 days, and up to 120 nights. If you don't like it, you get your money back. You'll have to pay a $139 processing fee and a restocking fee equal to 20% of the purchase price (the restocking fee will not exceed $500).

  4. Can I test the Posturepedic in stores?

    Yes! If you're located in Michigan, find a US-Mattress store near you to test the Posturepedic mattress. Otherwise, call a local mattress store to check if they have the Posturepedic mattresses in their store for you to test.

Conclusion

The Santa Paula V mattress is a quality piece of the Posturepedic collection from Sealy with eight different models to choose from. These mattresses are built with so many different comfort options that there's a model that will fit virtually everyone's needs. The 2021 collection of Santa Paula represents the fifth variation of this model as well as its most advanced in terms of high-quality materials.

These are some of the best mattresses for their price regardless of whether you like a firm mattress or a plush mattress. All mattresses are compatible with an adjustable base. The foam and springs will contour to your body similar to the way a memory foam mattress will.

The latest Santa Paula collection offer materials such as SealyCool Air Gel Foam which promotes airflow through the mattress and SurfaceGuard Technology which wicks moisture away from your body. One of my favorite features from this year's collection is the SealyCool Gel Foam in the center third of the mattress which offers additional comfort and contouring to relieve pressure on your joints. The variety of innerspring mattresses means that there is a mattress for back sleepers, stomach sleepers, and side sleepers. No matter what your sleeping position is, you are covered in this collection.

With such a wide range of options available to choose from offered on Santa Paula mattresses, I would recommend these mattresses to everyone. You're getting excellent value for the price that you're paying and these beds are backed by a 10-year warranty as well. All mattresses work with an adjustable base.
