Sealy Brand Traditional Innerspring Review
The lowest priced Sealy brand mattress, it's built with twice-tempered coils and minimal padding; spending a few more dollars can boost the padding layers on some models.
The Sealy Brand Traditional Innerspring mattress line is bare-bones, entry-level, and budget-priced. Sealy mattress reviews note that padding is relatively thin, so consumers on the hefty side may find these mattresses way too firm. For a 4-year-old child, however, the Brooks Point Select is just right, asserts a Sealy Brand review at Sears, and even nicer than higher-price varieties. The feel of the Candlewick Plush Euro Pillow Top is too hard for a couple, one of whom is a side-sleeper and the other suffers from shoulder problems, although another Sealy mattress review on Macy's reports that the plush top nicely supports her side-sleeping position. Indeed, Sleep Like the Dead's examination of more than 150 Sealy Brand reviews (for both the traditional innerspring and foam core series) recommends these mattresses for occasional or short-term use -- in a guest room, for example, or college dorm -- although three-fifths of the reviews indicate that the Sealy Brand mattress is used every day. Satisfaction is quite high, according to the review site, and the low price is at least a partial explanation. Durability is limited to about four years when put to the test daily.
Sealy Brand Traditional Innerspring mattresses have twice-tempered coils, with the count numbering 420 or 667 depending on model and mattress size. Sealy offers an opportunity to upgrade the basic mattress -- for a price, of course -- by adding memory foam for comfort, a nicer ticking, more responsive innerspring coils, and firmer edge support. Comfort levels for this line are firm, cushion firm, plush, and ultra plush. The mattresses are backed by a warranty, which again varies by model, and tops out at 10 years.
Sealy is a reputable brand with a wide range of offerings. For rock-bottom budget shoppers, the Sealy Brand Traditional Innerspring seems to be a good deal, especially for a spare bed. If this is your main mattress, you might need a replacement in a few years.
