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 prefer an innerspring purchase. The brand includes the original Posturepedic Series, the Posturepedic Plus Series and a newer, Premium Hybrid Series that combines foam and springs. Prices start at a relatively affordable $600 for a twin mattress.

Breaking it down

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, owners largely find the line extremely comfortable, with several saying it provides good support, dissipates heat and relieves pain. Many say it provides excellent, all-over support that helps them stay comfortable in any position.

Value

May cost less than some comparable mattresses. Prices for the Sealy Posturepedic line range from about $500 up to about $2,100 for a king-sized hybrid mattress. However, experts say Sealy mattresses are slightly lower-priced overall than competing innerspring mattresses from Simmons and Serta. In addition, compared to other mattresses, even the lower-end Posturepedic 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 Posturepedic mattresses is 10 years; non-prorated. 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 that applaud the Posturepedic's durability.
