Sealy vs Select Sleep Mattress
Looking for a Sealy Posturepedic bed, or browsing Sealy mattress reviews? We get it: Sealy is a big brand name, famous for its spine-fitting comfort. Still, no one Posturepedic bed is right for every person. Instead of shopping around for a bed that will work, why not start by trying different materials with us to create a bed that’s tailored specifically to you? With two very different approaches to health and comfort,
It’s time to compare:
Sealy Posturepedic Beds
Sealy Posturepedic beds are constructed to give various levels of support to different regions of the bed. The idea is to target the heaviest parts of your body, such as your torso and hips, to deliver reinforced support and keep your body level while you sleep. Though the company started in 1881, and the Posturepedic idea has been around since 1952, Tempur-Pedic purchased Sealy in 2012. Now Sealy is a subsidiary of Tempur Sealy International Inc..
Custom Beds by Select Sleep
Select Sleep was founded in 2000. We have spent most of the last two decades perfecting our manufacturing processes so that we can quickly and professionally build beds made-to-order. Customers come to our showroom and test which materials give them the comfort and support they want and need. Then we use high-quality, natural materials to construct a custom mattress that exceeds their sleep needs.
Select Sleep is, to this day, locally owned (Bay Area) and operated.
Head-to-Head Bed Comparison
To better understand what each company has to offer, it helps to compare a specific bed for a specific purpose.
We found that a particularly popular kind of Sealy Posturepedic bed was the Performance collection from their Response line. This is a traditional innerspring mattress that boasts responsiveness and support.
- Response Pro Encased Coil System
- Comfort Loft Cover with Moisture protect
- A gel memory foam top layer
- A gel foam base
- DuraFlex™ Edge System
Though the Sealy website says that this line of mattresses if for “Durable all-over support and comfort,” the Performance collection routinely gets negative owner reviews. These reviews consequently state that the durability is just not there.
In fact, almost a quarter of adults report sagging, body impressions, or center ridges occurring within three years of owning the mattress.
These problems seem particularly prominent with the pillow top models. For a bed that runs $699 to $1300, that’s disappointing.
Select Sleep, on the other hand, has a 100% customer satisfaction rate and zero returns over its history.
Beds are made from durable, natural materials that hold up well over time.
The best part is that each bed is custom-made for you.
This means that you’ll be getting a bed with just the right levels of support and comfort, but at a reasonable price.
How cool is that?

But is investing in a Sealy Posturepedic really a good bargain?
True, the average Sealy Posturepedic brand bed is less expensive than other comparable national brands. But is saving a few bucks worth it?
After sorting through hundreds of customer reviews, it appears that, even with the space-age-sounding Posturepedic technology, Sealy beds don’t do any better than the average mattress at minimizing pressure points, or helping to eliminate back pain.
So, if these things are important to you, you might want to consider getting a mattress suited to these tasks elsewhere.
Sealy beds do rate a little higher then other brands when it comes to overall support.
However, given the concerns about durability, we would expect support to give way after just three years of ownership.
Our humble feeling is: Don’t sacrifice a good night’s sleep just to save a few bucks.
You can get a customized mattress for just a little more, and be guaranteed a great night’s sleep. So why not take the plunge?
Don’t just take our word for it-- do your research. Read the Sealy mattress reviews, and carefully weigh what qualities you want in a bed. And just in case price really does matter that much to you… here’s a special online mattress deal.
We’re that serious about getting you to try a custom bed.
