Serta Perfect Sleeper Cozy Escape Mattress Review

Serta Perfect Sleeper Cozy Escape Plush Pillowtop Mattress in a room

The Cozy Escape is a cooling mattress with a focus on pressure relief. It's part of the new Perfect Sleeper collection, which provides 40% more pressure relief on average over the previous collections - according to Serta. They have exclusive new foams, including the HexCloud™ Gel Foam.

Comfort Scale Rating

The Cozy Escape comes in three different comfort levels: firm, plush, and plush pillow top. The firm is rated a 3 on our Comfort Scale, so it'll feel firm but still have some cushioning. The plush is a 6, so it falls into the mid-range in softness. It wouldn't feel like sinking into a cloud but you'll have a good amount of pressure-relieving foams. Many couples find this level a good compromise when they have differing preferences. The plush pillow top is also rated a 6 but it'll be a taller mattress and feel a bit more cushiony - though still giving plenty of pushback.

Pros & Cons

PROS CONS
  • Stays fresh and cool thanks to the coil system as well as the breathable foams and fabrics
  • The coils are wrapped individually so they'll support where you need it but also contour to your body
  • Edge support allows you to sleep comfortably even right near the side of the bed
  • It has new, more advanced foams from Serta that relieve pressure points more effectively
  • Although not the most expensive of beds, the Cozy Escape isn't great for those on a budget

The Perfect Sleeper Cozy Escape Features in Detail

The features and materials of the Perfect Sleeper beds come together to serve up a contouring and cooling mattress. Check out the details for the main features, though this list does not include every material.

Serta Perfect Sleeper Cozy Escape Plush Pillowtop Mattress Cutaway
  1. 1. CoolFeel™ Cover

    With how breathable this plant-derived cover is, you'll slip into a cool bed.

  2. 2. HeiQ Vblock™

    This technology on the cover kills harmful microorganisms, protecting the durability of the mattress.

  3. 3. HexCloud™ Gel Foam

    Contouring and pressure-relieving without letting you sink in too much. It works with the other comfort foams to keep you from tossing and turning.

  4. 4. BestEdge® Foam Encasement

    A foam rail supports your body and prevents roll-off at the edge, so you can sleep comfortably from edge to edge.

  5. 5. 825 Edition Custom Support™ Coil System

    Individually wrapped coils provide gentle support that also decreases the impact of any motion from a partner.

Warranty

The Cozy Escape mattress comes with a 10-year warranty against factory defects. There's also a comfort guarantee of 120 nights to try it out.

Conclusion

The Cozy Escape is the perfect bed for those who are focused on pressure relief and cooling. The combination of the 825 edition custom support coil system with the high-quality memory foams makes for a bed that contours to you while providing gentle support. The cover is cool to the touch, so it'll feel nice immediately. The gel foam will help keep you cool all night, along with the breathability of a coil system underneath. 

With three options for comfort levels, it'll work for more people. The firm option is not too firm so it'll still have a conforming feel but will better suit heavier sleepers and those who don't want too soft a mattress. The plush and plush pillow-top options both have a slightly softer than neutral kind of feel. They'd be soft enough for side sleepers but are not overly pillowy.

I'd recommend the Cozy Escape if you're willing to spend around $1,000 on a mattress and you value a deep cool sleep.
