Pressure Test Results

We pressure tested the iComfort Blue Fusion 3000 Firm with different size people on their side and back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test)

The Blue Fusion 3000 Firm mattress tested well for various body sizes and sleeping positions. Even though the mattress is firm (which can make it difficult to provide pressure relief), this model still did a pretty good job. If you look at the pressure maps below, you can see the buttons on the top of the mattress coming through – this is because the mattress is firm. But at the same time, there’s barely any red that would come from high-pressure points. So you can see this mattress did a good job minimizing pressure points even though it’s a firm mattress. The mattress also provided the proper support.

It’s often difficult to find a comfortable firm mattress. They’re designed to be hard, so they often end up feeling uncomfortable. Serta produced a great firm bed in this case because you get a firm AND still comfortable bed.

The Blue Fusion 3000 Features in Detail

Blue Fusion 3000 firm cutaway
  1. 1. PillowSoft Aire Foam

    The fluffy, soft and supporting material on the top of the mattress.

  2. 2. 1/2” Serta Support Foam

    Extra-firm foam to give you that firmer feeling mattress.

  3. 3. 2” TempActiv Gel Memory Foam

    TempActiv Gel has millions of gel beads that capture and expel body heat. This helps the bed stay cooler during the night to help you sleep more comfortably.

  4. 4. Hybrid Micro Coil

    Adds conforming support to the other layers of foam. Micro coils are typically only put into expensive mattresses because it’s a premium feature.

  5. 5. 1/2” EverCool Fuze Gel Foam

    Helps airflow through in the bed to keep the bed cooler, so you sleep better.

  6. 6. Serta Hybrid Coil Support System Firm with Best Edge

    Pocketed coil innerspring design is the best type of coil design available in mattresses. iComfort Hybrid uses a 3-stage spring design. The top of the coil gives for a soft feeling. As more weight is added on top of the spring, the middle part of the coil gets firmer. The 3rd stage is even firmer still to provide full-body support under the heaviest part of your body. The 3-stage design makes the bed soft where you like it and firm where you need it.

Conclusion

The Blue Fusion 3000 Firm mattress is a positively rated mattress from Serta. It’s a firm feeling mattress, so it’s only right for you if you like firm mattresses. If you like medium or soft beds then you should consider another model.

The Blue Fusion 3000 tested well with different body sizes and sleeping positions. Even though the mattress is firm, it still minimizes pressure points extremely well. And at the same time, the mattress provides good back support which is a testament to the 3 stage coil design Serta uses in their iComfort Hybrid collection.

It also includes TempActive Gel Memory Foam, which is Serta’s second-generation material in temperature-controlled memory foam. Memory foam can sleep hot, so premium features like this help alleviate those kinds of problems.

As I’ve tried to emphasize in this review, we give a lot of credit to Serta for making this firm mattress so comfortable and supporting. Many times a firm feeling mattress is hard and uncomfortable, but not in this case. If you like a firm mattress and want a memory foam topped hybrid then this is a smart choice. If you like a softer bed then check out its sister model, the 3000 Plush.
