Type of Construction

Serta iComfort mattresses are gel memory, all-foam beds (they have no innerspring system).

Serta iComfort - An Overview

iComfort mattresses are made with gel memory foam instead of using a coil system. Memory foam beds like these have become very popular in the last 10-15 years. iComfort made its mark by infusing gel technology into the memory foam to help control body heat, which was a common complaint in memory foam beds. Today’s iComfort mattresses use TempActiv Gel Memory Foam in every model. The mattress cover feels luxurious and is cool to the touch because it's been infused with cooling technology. It works with the layers underneath to control and dissipate heat. There are additional foams included that vary by model.

Delivery Method

Serta iComfort mattresses are sold in stores and online. They’re pretty heavy mattresses and so they’re delivered by retailer delivery teams. In-home delivery is free, and so is the removal of your old mattress.

More about Serta

Serta is one of America’s oldest, largest and most trusted mattress brands. Serta launched its iconic Perfect Sleeper brand in 1931. Today Serta is the largest mattress brand in the United States. It’s a part of the Serta Simmons Bedding company which operates 36 American factories. They also have a broad international presence.

There are hundreds of mattress brands available in stores and online. But most of them are just marketing and reselling beds produced by others. Serta actually is a manufacturer, designing and producing its own mattresses. They leverage their lengthy experience and large size to drive innovation and bring high-quality beds to market.

Serta has sold tens of millions of mattresses while maintaining a high-quality track record and level of sales success. And they have many loyal repeat customers. On the internet, there are review sites that gather and present what they purport to be ratings. However, they have a limited number of reviews. They don't fully reflect the experience of the millions of satisfied owners.

Conclusion

Serta iComfort mattresses are very popular gel memory foam mattresses. Buyers have found them to be comfortable to sleep in, and most importantly, they don’t get as hot as regular memory foam beds.

In our testing, we found the data backs up the reasons why people like these beds. You can see the specific model results up above, but in general, the beds did a very good job relieving pressure points and providing proper support. Serta used high-quality materials in the mattress and it’s put together with quality. It also has an attractive cover.

The iComfort CF3000 Plush and CF1000 Medium tested very well in every sleeping situation which is great because the CF1000 is the most affordable iComfort model and the CF3000 is a mid-level model. They do have the extra features to justify the higher prices but you can also find very comfortable iComfort models at lower prices. So the exact model you pick depends on your personal budget and the features and comfort you’re looking for. After you narrow it down to your favorite, you can select one of the iComfort models and be confident you made a safe choice.
