If It’s a Sagging Mattress You Want, Try Sealy

by Glenda B.

In February last year, we purchased a new King size Sealy mattress and box springs. We did not do any comparative shopping as our future son-in-law is an executive at a local furniture store, and we purchased using his discount and advice.

We were replacing a Simmons King size mattress for which we paid around $1,000 8 years before. Our future son-in-law showed us several models which he recommended, leaving the final decision to us. After deliberations and tryouts, we selected the Sealy model #504059.

This is a pillow top model with calibrated zones for specific support and comfort. There is less support for the bottom 1/4 of the bed, and little more support for the head and shoulder areas. We were told the middle ½ of the bed has the most support, for back and hips. As we both have back issues, we thought it was the best selection, as the bed seemed to be very comfortable when we tried it out in the store.

We paid roughly $1700 after the employee discount, and had the set delivered the next week. Within 2 days, we sent the box springs back as the black mesh covering on the bottom had come loose and you could see it hanging down under the bed frame. The store graciously brought us a new set, and took the old set back.

My husband and I are both side sleepers, and the bed proved to be very comfortable from the beginning. There was no initial break in period to get use to the mattress. We found the zones (the center ½ is firmer than the feet or head areas, providing support to the lumbar spine and hips) to be beneficial in relieving back stress and tension. The new bed was more comfortable than our old bed and provided back discomfort relief.

Fifteen months later, the bed is still comfortable; however, it is showing significant wear. Because of the pillow top feature, we cannot flip the mattress, an issue we were aware of the prior to the purchase. However, it had not occurred to us we could not turn the mattress 180 degrees due to the specific comfort zoning.

The bed is already showing indentions in the middle 1/2 on both sides. It is easy to tell where we each sleep. The indentions are visible to anyone would see the bed, particularly when it is made. The appearance is rather embarrassing, you would think we each weighed 400 pounds, and had slept on the same mattress for 10 years.

We would not recommend this mattress to anyone who intends on keeping it for more than 2 years, as it will not hold its shape. It definitely was not worth the price we paid, with or without the discount. We will not purchase another Sealy mattress. We will more than likely be replacing this one within the next year.

Prior to purchasing a new mattress, we intend to ask for a replacement under the warranty. If we are given the option of replacing it with a similar model or another, we will select another manufacturer and a different model. Overall, I would give this mattress no more than 2 out of 5 stars, as it is fair.
