Sealy Posturepedic Futon Mattress
Surprising Comfort May Cause You To Rethink Futons
The Sealy Posturepedic futon mattress challenges consumers to rethink their view of the classic futon and turn it into one of practicality and comfort.
When most people think of futon mattresses they think of cheap collegiate living that is uncomfortable at best.
A futon is a piece of folding furniture that can either be a sofa or a bed. It usually has a hinged mechanism that allows it to easily fold down.
Most futon frames are either metal or wood. Traditionally a futon mattress is no more than cotton ticking.
Futons, being convertible and inexpensive are traditionally thought of as furniture for college students or young professionals without the capital for "real" furniture. Cheap futons often become uncomfortable as the cotton gets compressed and the slats of the frame can be felt through the mattress.
The Sealy Posturepedic Difference
Sealy has been making mattresses for over one hundred years.
For over sixty years they have been releasing mattresses in their Sealy Posturepedic mattress line, a type of mattress that is specially designed to alleviate back pain and provide full body support to the sleeper.
Today this support can either be provided by memory foam, latex, or innersprings. When comparing innerspring mattresses, the Sealy Posturepedic comes out on top most of the time.
That is why many consumers are excited that this level of comfort has been translated to a futon mattress.
The Sealy Posturepedic Futon Mattress
There are many features on the Sealy Posturepedic futon mattress that endear it to consumers. For starters, it is nine inches thick.
It also has innerspring coils, a rarity in the world of futon mattresses.
There are eleven different layers of comfort in the Sealy futon mattress. The center layer is made of spring coils, something that you'll be hard pressed to find in any other futon mattress.
Surrounding the inner springs are layers of dense cotton batting. There is also an upper and lower layer of egg crate foam and a layer of high density polyurethane foam as well.
This mattress comes in full and queen sizes. It is approximately $500 for both sizes depending on where you are going shopping.
It works both on platform beds and bi-fold futon frames. Because of its thickness it is difficult to fit on a more complex futon frame.

As mentioned, most futon mattresses are lumpy and quickly lose their shape. The combination of springs and high density foam make the Sealy futon mattress one of the most comfortable of its class.
It is more expensive than other futon mattresses. It also looks like a regular bed mattress, rather than coming with a colorful futon cover, as many other futon mattresses do.
This adds to the overall cost of the bed. Additionally, it is more difficult to maneuver up and down.
The Sealy Posturepedic futon mattress might work best in a office that is occasionally used as a guest bedroom rather than as someone's primary piece of furniture.
