Sealy Posturepedic

Pros
  • Provides pain relief, at least initially
  • Pocketed coils isolate motion well
  • Good warranty
Cons
  • May be prone to sagging

Bottom line

The Sealy Posturepedic is one of the highest rated innerspring mattresses available, according to SleepLikeTheDead.com. This makes it a good choice for those who are wedded to an innerspring purchase. The brand includes a Classic series, with titanium alloy springs positioned to provide more support for heavier areas of the body, as well as hybrid models that combine pocketed springs with gel-infused foam. Prices start at a relatively affordable $500 for a queen set.

Comfort

Minimizes motion transfer. The Sealy Posturepedic brand performs at an above-average level when it comes to isolating motion, according to SleepLikeTheDead.com, with editors adding that Posturepedic models featuring pocketed coils tend to perform best. This website also reports that the line gets above-average ratings on its suitability for sex. In addition, users posting reviews on Viewpoints.com largely find the line extremely comfortable, with several saying it provides good support, dissipates heat and relieves pain. According to one user, "I fall asleep much more quickly thanks to this mattress than I ever did before." Nevertheless, some say that over time the mattress sags and become uncomfortable.

Value

A shorter warranty. The Sealy Posturepedic line ranges from about $500 to $1,500 for a queen set, with higher-end models featuring pocketed coils and gel-infused foam. Lower-priced models have increased innerspring support in the center third of the mattress, where the heavier parts of a person's body rest, which adds extra value. The warranty on Posturepedics is 10 years; SleepLikeTheDead.com reports that until recently, it was 25 years. Some other innerspring makers offer long warranties, but many are prorated after 10 years. The Posturepedic warranty covers sagging, but only if the depth of the indentation is at least 1.5 inches.

Durability

Mixed assessments from reviewers. According to SleepLikeTheDead.com, 20 percent of Posturepedic owners report significant sagging or body impressions within three years of ownership. Editors also find that owners tend to replace their Posturepedic after six to seven years of regular use. This longevity figure is close to or lower than the average longevity reported for all innerspring mattresses as well as all mattress types. Still, we read many comments from owners posting to Viewpoints.com that applaud the Posturepedic's durability.
