Sealy vs. Serta: Help Choosing Between These Two Favorites


Sealy Serta Mattresses

If you’re in the market for a new mattress, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by all of the great options. With all of these choices come many questions. In order to make the shopping process as easy as possible, you may find that it’s best for you to stick to some tried-and-true favorites rather than a newcomer to the mattress industry. You cannot go wrong beginning your search looking into buying a Sealy or Serta mattress!

Sealy Mattresses

We regularly receive customer reviews from people who really love their new Sealy mattress. A big part of this is the fact that Sealy uses Posturepedic Technology in their mattresses. This provides you the right kind of support while you sleep. It was designed with the help of orthopedic specialists and is exclusive to their products. Because 50% of your weight rests in the center of the mattress while you sleep, a Sealy mattress was developed by these experts specifically to target, support, and reinforce your back and core.

As highlighted in our Sealy brand highlight, Sealy is one of the oldest mattress makers in the country. It was founded in 1881 in Sealy, Texas. To this day, all Sealy mattresses are made in the U.S.A. and come with a 10-year manufacturer warranty. They’re able to be paired with an adjustable bed base for your most comfortable night of sleep ever!

Over the years, a lot has changed in the mattress industry, but one thing is exactly the same: the Sealy brand is a name you can trust for a high-quality product! The Sealy lineup is a vast one. You can choose a Sealy mattress model that is ultra-firm, firm, cushion firm, plush or ultra-plush. Prices range from affordable comfort to premium luxury, depending on your budget. One of our most popular options in the collection is the Sealy Golden Elegance Gilded Breath Plush Pillow Top Mattress. This mattress features 4-inches of soft SealySupport™ foam located at the comfort layer, which enhances the cushioning feel of this plush innerspring mattress. An ultra-stretch cover, coupled with soft foam, and proprietary CoreSupport at the quilt, lends instant ease at the surface while ensuring reinforcement at the center third. Limiting motion transfer and strengthening the border, an encased coil system, edge support, and a firm foam base extend the sleep surface and deliver individualized conformability. No wonder it is so popular!

Serta Mattresses

As noted in our Serta brand highlight article, Serta has been committed to finding new ways to innovate sleep since 1931- almost 100 years! From that original mattress all of those years ago to the revolutionary Serta iComfort Sleep System, Serta mattresses have helped thousands upon thousands of people get a good night’s sleep. Through the decades, they’ve maintained their commitment to excellence as well as continued to make these mattresses right here in the United States of America. Now, Serta is the leading mattress provider in the United States! 

Serta mattresses range from luxuriously soft to extra firm. Depending on your personal preference, you’ll find one that is just right. Serta hybrid products are a combination of cooling foam and state-of-the-art steel coils. These strong, durable coils provide maximum support while you sleep. Now, you can get all the perks in one bed- cooling technology, deep down support, and cradling comfort! The Serta Arctic Premier Medium Hybrid Mattress is one you’re going to want to pay special attention to if you have the tendency to sleep hot. Designed with Serta’s most heat-absorbing layer, this cooling hybrid foam mattress for hot sleepers features the exclusive, three-part Reactex® System that keeps you consistently cool by dissipating body heat and pulling it down into the mattress. A therapeutic combination of high-density premium memory foam and cooling gel-infused memory foam conforms and cradles your body to relieve pressure points. At the base and edge, an advanced innerspring system of individually wrapped coils provides durable, flexible support while the foam encasement reinforces the perimeter for a uniform feel across the surface.

The foam mattress options by Serta, like the Serta iComfort Foam Cf1000 Medium Mattress, are engineered for pressure point benefits and a dense overall feel. The layers of gel memory foam and carbon-infused materials conduct heat away from the body with contouring support. With an exceptionally strong base, the foam core is both supportive and comfortable- just what you’re looking for.

When looking at the amazing design and technology that goes into each mattress, it is easy to see why these mattresses are so popular. Don’t forget, all iComfort mattresses are compatible with adjustable foundations for a night free of snoring and frequent waking.

Sealy or Serta: Which is Better?

When it comes to choosing a Sealy and Serta mattress, there are people on either side. Everyone has different needs when it comes to comfort and sleep. The truth is that people love both! If you are ready to sleep through the night without getting so hot you wake up, you may want to begin your search looking into the Serta brand, particularly those in the Arctic Collection. For those looking to make the most economical choice, Sealy tends to be a bit less expensive. Sealy is made especially for those focused on relieving pressure points and pain. On the other hand, perhaps you’re tired of your partner waking you up and so the Deep Reaction Memory Foam in Serta iComfort mattresses is a better fit. It’s also worth noting that most Sealy mattresses are innerspring and most Serta mattresses are memory foam, and some people prefer one over the other.
