Sealy 2017 Comparison Guide

Mattresses are sold under different names at different retailers, and Sealy is no exception. This can make it difficult to comparison shop a mattress you liked from one retailer at other retailers. It is especially difficult to make these comparisons when the retailer doesn’t list the specs of the mattress on their website. This is a guide to compare the models of Sealy mattresses that came out in 2017.

Sealy has a few different lineups. In the past, they had the “Sealy brand” lineup and then the “Posturepedic” lineup. This year, they seem to be moving away from that. Now, the mattresses are all “Sealy,” but the higher end ones (in the Performance and Premier collections) now say “with Posturepedic technology.”

As you compare names in the following chart, keep a couple things in mind.

  • Make sure you’re comparing prices for the same size and whether or not a boxspring is included
  • The mattresses might not be completely identical. Sometimes a retailer will have a negligible difference in the mattress, like a different cover, to claim it’s a different mattress

Comparison to last year’s models

If you’re comparing to models that came out in 2015, keep a few things in mind.

  • The Essentials collection was what they used to call “Sealy Brand” or the “Non-Posturepedic” Sealys.
  • The Performance collection is roughly equivalent in quality to the previous year’s “Posturepedic Plus” lineup
  • The Premium collection is replacing the “Posturepedic Select” lineup from before.

This year, they changed the coil system in the mattresses. They’re using more coils than before, but they’re shaped differently, so it’s not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison.

They're a similar quality overall. As for zoning, it's a nice feature to have, but I don't think it's absolutely necessary. Other factors will be more important. As you allude to, individually wrapped coils are good at contouring to your body anyway, even without zoning.

Any thoughts on the Warrenville Plush vs the Beautyrest Sunny Day Plush? Also, do you think a pocketed coil mattress with a high coil count needs zoning in the lumbar area? It appears that the Warrenville does and the Sunny Day does not. I am a thin person, but I've often noticed sagging in the lumbar area of other beds. What do you think?

Yes, that one is from an older lineup. It doesn't necessarily mean the mattress itself is old, only that the design is. Posturepedic changed their coil system this year. The foams look to be mostly the same with some minor changes.

I am looking for a comparable Sealy posturepedic alder crest plush euro pillow top Queen mattress and foundation. That is it's name from Costco. Not sure if that was last year's name because I did find comparables listed on older chart. They were from US mattress, Sears and Macy's. Does this mean it is an older mattress? Would there be some way to compare to the newer mattresses? Thanks so much!!

The overall quality is very similar to Simmons. I am not aware of any changes to the foam durability.

Any change in the foam durability? Thoughts on overall quality compared to Beautyrest or other similar big box models?
