Sealy vs. Serta: Which One is Right for You?


Sealy vs Serta

If you’re in the market for a new mattress, you may soon realize there are a lot of options. With all of these choices come many questions. “Do I need a firm mattress if I sleep on my stomach?” “Is memory foam better than innersprings?” “Which is a better mattress Sealy or Serta?” “What does hybrid mean?” City Mattress is here to answer all of your questions and help you find your ideal sleep comfort, with a mattress made from one of the well-renowned brands we carry. This includes top sellers like Sealy and Serta. 

Sealy Mattresses

Have you ever said, “My bed is awesome!”? If not, it may be because you aren’t sleeping on the right mattress. This glowing review is exactly what Mike S. recently told us about his Sealy mattress. Carla L. said this about her Sealy Kenaston mattress: “I have been enjoying sleeping again… have not had any leg cramps since I got my new mattress. I had forgotten how great it is to sleep through the night. I love the mattress!”

Clearly, people really love their new Sealy mattresses and as noted in our Sealy mattress brand guide, we do too. 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.

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 Response Lavina. The Lavina is a cushion firm innerspring mattress with a reinforced center third in the middle of the mattress. It features a dense layer of SealyCool™ Gel Memory foam. The perimeter is a DuraFlex™ Edge, a double row of smaller coils that adds more support and provides an even surface. The Quilt package has a ComfortLoft™ Cover with MoistureProtect™ Technology, woven into the fibers to draw away moisture. The comfort layers provide a cushioned firm feel, a nice balance of comfort and support. No wonder it is so popular!

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!

Serta Mattresses

Featured in our recent 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 has 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.

Serta iComfort 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 iComfort CF4000 Firm mattress features layers of Carbon Fiber Memory Foam paired with the UltraCold System™ to help channel heat away from your body. The exclusive Air Support™ Foam contours to your body and help relieve aches and pain caused by pressure points. A layer of Deep Reaction Memory Foam provides a slower reacting foam to add a firmer feel. 

The foam mattress options by Serta, like the Serta iComfort Foam CF2000 Firm, use a combination of an all-foam core and an advanced gel memory foam material. This mattress combines layers of Carbon Fiber Memory Foam and EverCool® Fuze Gel Foam to help channel heat away from your body and provide exceptional strength and neck support. The added Gel Active® Max Memory Foam helps promote airflow to prevent that hot stuffy feeling when you fall asleep. The Cold Touch™ Cover is breathable and gives you an instant cool-to-the-touch sensation as soon as you lie down.


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