Serta Sleep True - An Overview

Sleep True mattresses are in the value category, but they are still of high quality. Most of the innerspring models have an 805 wrapped coil system. Wrapped coils are good because they allow each coil to move individually and contour to your body. It helps with pressure relief and reducing any motion felt between partners. Most of these mattresses have cooling gel fused into the memory foam to help control body heat, which was a common complaint with memory foam beds. There are additional foams included that vary by model. Most of the models have a Best Edge Foam Encasement for edge support. Nearly all of them work with an adjustable base.

The Best Serta Sleep True Mattresses

We’ve bought, inspected and tested each and every Sleep True mattress using our unique pressure mapping system. We combined those results with our analysis of how these features compare to industry standards. We then pressure test petite, average and large body sizes in both the back and side sleeping positions. Then the data is analyzed and compared to all the other mattresses. You can click through to any of the beds listed below and see the detailed test results and expert video reviews.

More on Serta Sleep True Mattress Features

Inside layers of a Sleep True mattress

1. Cool Twist Gel Memory Foam

This memory foam is infused with cooling gel. It helps to dissipate heat away from your body for a cooler sleep. It also provides better contouring for pressure relief.

2. 805 Wrapped Coil Innerspring

This coil system used in most of the Sleep True mattresses has individually-pocketed coils for better contouring. The localized movement of the coils decreases motion transfer between partners.

3. Best Edge Foam Encasement

The edge is fully encased with a firm foam, allowing you to sleep all the way to the edge without feeling like you'll roll off the bed. It also provides a better edge for sitting on.

Delivery Method

Serta Sleep True mattresses are sold in stores and online. They’re delivered by retailer delivery teams, usually for free. In-home setup and the removal of your old mattress can be added on if needed.

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 Sleep True mattresses are an affordable but high-quality option from a trusted brand. Our tests showed that they're effective at relieving pressure points and supporting the body properly. The materials used are of good quality, with comfortable foams and cooling technology that'll help you sleep without disturbance. The wrapped coil system used in most of the mattresses along with the gel memory foam does a good job reducing motion transfer, which will be nice for any couples with a light or restless sleeper.

It depends on your needs and preferences, so look at the individual model. But overall, I'd recommend the Serta Sleep True mattresses for those who want a quality mattress at an affordable price. The models I think stand up to this the best have been highlighted above.
