|Category||Criteria||Sealy Innerspring Rating||What Sealy Innerspring Users Say|
|Customer Satisfaction||Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding Sealy innerspring mattresses.||61 (Essentials)
|Sealy innersprings in the Essentials collection have earned a below-average customer rating, while those in the Performance and Premium collections above-average ratings. Customer satisfaction regarding Sealy mattresses will vary by retailer.|
|Durability||The average mattress will perform for approximately seven years before it needs to be replaced.||Poor||Mattresses in the Premium collection tend to have longer lifespans than those in the Essentials and Performance collections, but our reviews indicate that Sealy innersprings have below-average longevity compared to similar models.|
|Motion Isolation||Innerspring mattresses that are overly responsive will create excessive motion when someone gets up or shifts positions in bed.||Fair||Owners report that innersprings in the Essentials collection do not minimize motion, while the Performance and Premium Collections reduce and isolate motion to some extent.|
|Sex||Bouncier, more responsive beds tend to be more enjoyable for sex.||Good||Sealy innersprings are known for their responsive sleep surfaces, and customers claim this quality makes them suitable for sex.|
|Conforming||Innerspring mattresses tend to conform less than foam or latex models, resulting in less spinal alignment and pressure relief.||Fair||Like many innersprings, the models in Sealy’s three Response Line collections offer little to no conforming — though mattresses in the Premium collection perform slightly better than the other two collections.|
|Temperature Neutrality||Innerspring mattresses tend to retain less body heat than other mattress types, and will ‘sleep cooler’ as a result.||Good||Sealy innersprings retain little body heat, according to our customer feedback, and sleep relatively cool.|
|Off-gassing||Some mattresses emit particles when they are unpackaged, accompanied by unpleasant ‘off-gassing’ smells that can last for days.||Fair||Innersprings in the Essentials collection produce minimal off-gassing smells, while reports indicate that Performance and Premium models emit a fair amount of initial unpackaging odor. By comparison, most innersprings produce little to no off-gassing.|
|Edge Support||The frames of innerspring mattresses are encased to support the springs and provide a suitable sleeping surface.||Good||Owner feedback suggests that Performance and Premium innersprings offer solid edge support, while mattresses in the Essentials collection have less edge support and may sink prematurely.|
|Noise||Innerspring mattresses tend to be somewhat noisy due to their high levels of bounciness and responsiveness, as well as squeaky metal components||Fair||Innersprings from Sealy — particularly those in the Essentials collection — produce a fair amount of noise.|
|Ease of Moving and Rotating||Most innerspring mattresses are relatively heavy, but some can be more unwieldy than others.||Good||Mattresses in the Essentials and Performance collections weigh between 50 and 75 lbs, making them somewhat easy to maneuver and rotate as recommended; Premium models are heavier and more difficult to move.|
Based on our customer feedback, Sealy innerspring mattresses received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
|Sealy Innerspring Collection||Sleep Position||Lightweight Sleeper Rating (Less than 130 lbs)||Average Weight Sleeper Rating (130 to 230 lbs)||Heavyweight Sleeper Rating (More than 230 lbs)|
|Premium||Side||Very Good||Very Good||Good|
|Back||Very Good||Very Good||Good|
