Sealy Posturepedic Mattresses

You just need to spend a little bit of time reading about Sealy Posturepedic Mattresses, so that you will not be confused by the many Sealy Posturepedic Mattresses out there on the market.

A Sealy Posturepedic mattress is one of the "National Mattress Brands" out there. Now if you are not from the bedding industry that means that EVERYONE carries the "Sealy Posturepedic" line of mattresses. Now where it can get frustrating for the consumer is every retailer that sells a Sealy Posturepedic mattress most likely will have a different name on the bed, so you can't go from Macy's to Sears to US-Mattress and find the same Sealy Posturepedic "Name" on the mattress. Now keeping that in mind what should you do to become educated, and cut through the Bull? Well the best thing to do is know what to look for in the mattress and based upon specs, price, and feel you can make your buying decision as to which one is the best Sealy Posturepedic Mattress for you.

    Sealy Posturepedic Preferred Series
  1. The first step to buy the best Sealy Posturepedic Mattress for you is to determine what Sealy Posturepedic Mattress series you should be looking at. Now I want you to pay attention to the "series" name because that will help you compare "apples to apples" as you shop around. The three Main Series of Sealy Posturepedic are: Sealy Posturepedic Preferred Series, Sealy Posturepedic Reserve Series, and Sealy Posturepedic Signature Series. Now all three have a Posturepedic coil unit, however there are some differences that make a big difference in the feel of the bed.

  2. Now that you know that there are three different series of Sealy Posturepedic mattresses it is time to look at a "cheat sheet" and see what they are made of. This step will help you decide if the additional cost is worth the upgrade.

  3. Sealy Posturepedic Preferred Series Entry Level Sealy Posturepedic, so it has the lowest price of the three Sealy Posturepedic

    • Uses a 3-Zone Posturepedic coil unit with 736 coils

    • Comes in Firm, Cushion Firm, Plush, and Ultra Plush

    • Mattress thickness starts at 10"

    • Unicased Design - This means foam goes around the coil unit so the edges have support

  4. Sealy Posturepedic Reserve Series

    • Mid Level Sealy Posturepedic

    • Uses a 3-Zone Posturepedic coil unit with 782 coils

    • Has a memory foam inlay in the center third of the mattress. This helps reduce pressure on the hips and provides additional support

    • Mattress thickness starts at 12"

    • Comes in Firm, Cushion Firm, Plush, and Ultra Plush

    • Unicased XT Design - this provides upgraded support around the bed's perimeter. In laymen's terms if you sleep with a bed hog you can sleep to the edge without feeling like you are falling off.

  5. Sealy Posturepedic Signature Series

    • Top of the line Sealy Posturepedic

    • Uses a 7-Zone Posturepedic coil unit with 782 coils

    • Has two memory foam inlays as well as a layer of latex. The memory foam is in the regions of the bed that support the head and knees. Latex is in the center third of the mattress to provide superior pressure relief and support to the hips.

    • Mattress thickness starts at 13"

    • Comes in Firm, Cushion Firm, Plush, and Ultra Plush

    • Unicased XT Design - this provides upgraded support around the bed's perimeter. In laymen's terms if you sleep with a bed hog you can sleep to the edge without feeling like you are falling off.

  6. Now that you have read about the three different series you need to understand the coil count you need in the mattress. Now let me tell you not to make the biggest mistake you can make when buying a mattress. DON'T GET HUNG UP ON COIL COUNT. More coils does not equal better support, and less does not mean worse support. It does play a role in support but it is not the only factor you should consider. The reason I bring this up is because some retailers may have a Reserve Posturepedic with 736 coils and another may have 756 coils. Fundamentally they are the same and the comfort should be just about equal. However I do bring this up because there are Sealy mattresses out there that have the "Posturepedic" name on them but they are not the same quality of these three. You WILL see Posturepedic Queen Sets for $399, but the quality is not the same, remember you get what you pay for.

  7. Sealy Posturepedic Reserve Series
  8. The next steps since you now know about the different Sealy Posturepedic Series and their construction it's time to go mattress shopping. The first place to go shopping is your computer. Check out any online ads you see from mattress retailers. When you do this keep a pen and paper handy, because you will want to jot down site names and prices. As you surf the web for mattresses use the bookmark feature of your browser and bookmark any good sale beds you see. This will help you go back to see them in the future. ** Just to practice bookmarking, why don't you bookmark this page so you can refer back to it or pass it along to friends who are looking to buy a new mattress.

  9. Now that you have surfed the web and got a feel for pricing it's time to hit the road and go to your local bedding shop or department store. When you get there ask the salesperson to show you the Sealy Posturepedic series you would like to see. Make sure you tell him you want to see the Preferred, Reserve and Signature series Posturepedic Mattresses. This tells the salesperson two things: You did your homework, and he will have to give you straight answers to questions and not "fluff".

  10. ** Just a note. He should take you to them, however if he talks poorly about the product and doesn't want to show them to you remember that he may have his own interests in mind.

  11. Now that you located the different Sealy Posturepedic mattresses, have some fun and LAY DOWN on them. Spend some time lying on them in your natural sleeping position. This means if you go to sleep on your right side lay that way, not doing this and simply lying on your back and saying this feels good is doing yourself a disservice. If you can lie in your natural sleeping position for about 5 minutes and don't feel pressure in your shoulders or hips you are on a good bed. Once 5 minutes is up get up and lay down on another Sealy Posturepedic and your body will tell you instantly the one it likes better. Use this method to narrow down your selection to the perfect Sealy Posturepedic.

  12. Sealy Posturepedic Signature Series
  13. The selection part of buying a bed is now done, because you now know the series and feel you like. You can now compare the price of the Sealy you like to the same series online. If you feel that the deal online is the best deal take it, because you have already laid on that series and like it. Some retailers will match online pricing, so ask your salesperson and make the best decision based on your budget. Also ask the retailer about all additional fees such as delivery and removal, because most online stores won't charge delivery in order to earn your business. Some retailers match the price, but still charge the extras so in this case buying online is better. **If the retailer is going to be equal in all aspects of the sale, I recommend buying from a local store, because you always have a name and a face to go back to if you has any questions or problems.

NEVER let a mattress salesperson pressure you into buying by offering a "today only" sale. Trust me you can most likely get that sale tomorrow if you have a salesperson who is looking out for you.
