Serta Mattress Reviews

Serta is America’s top-selling mattress brand, made famous in part for their talking sheep commercials you’ve probably seen. Serta offers popular well-known brands including Perfect Sleeper, iComfort, and their Hotel Collection. Serta is part of the larger Serta Simmons Bedding Company, the second largest mattress manufacturer in the world. And unlike many newer mattress brands, they actually design and manufacturer their own mattresses.

Type of Construction

Serta is best known for Perfect Sleeper which has a long reputation as a comfortable and dependable innerspring mattress. SleepTrue are their newer, lower-priced innerspring beds. Serta also established their iComfort memory foam and hybrid mattresses which became overnight successes. Those 2 brands have all since expanded and the foam vs innerspring distinction between them has blurred.

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. Serta today is the largest mattress brand in the United States. It is 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 numbers of reviews and cannot objectively reflect the experience of the millions of satisfied owners. Fake news anyone?

Conclusion

Serta is a leading mattress company that you can trust for the most part. They have a huge assortment of styles, features and prices. Therefore, you need to zero in on what you’re looking for to find a specific mattress for your needs. They offer beds for everybody’s needs, from back sleepers to side sleepers, from foam to innerspring, and low priced to luxury.

For example, if you’re looking at high end memory foam, you’ll be comparing iComfort or Hybrids vs similar products. In our evaluations, the iComfort and Hydrid models generally test really well. At the lower priced end, SleepTrue provides a low cost, limited feature mattress that has a shorter comfortable life span.

In the mid-range, Serta Perfect Sleeper provides solid values in the $600 to $1,200 range. They have such a wide assortment that you’ll need to narrow the selection down to those that fit your budget, comfort, and preferred features to find the best bed for yourself. Perfect Sleeper models carry different names at different stores so it’s hard to compare prices.

The Serta Hotel lines have nice choices if you want to duplicate the sleep you had in a hotel. And they also make flip-able double sided mattresses if you like that.
