Sealy 2017 Mattress Comparison Guide

By The Mattress Nerd

As you may have noticed, it’s difficult to comparison shop for mattresses between retailers because they often have different names for what seems to be the same exact mattress. Or, the retailer will claim their mattress is an exclusive, or their model has some feature that nobody else has that makes it different. How then will you take advantage of the price match guarantees that so many places offer? We’re here to help!

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.


Every mattress company on the planet works every year to build a mattress that moves ever closer to delivering a perfect night’s sleep. Sealy is no different in that chase. Sealy’s 2017 offerings are upgrades from the 2015 models with different names but improved coil structures.

The 2015 versions have also been renamed: Sealy Brand or Non-Posturepedic is now Essentials. The Posturepedic Plus is now Performance. The Posturepedic Select is now Premium. All three collections include some combination of (1) thin comfort layers using poly or gel foam combined with increasingly luxe fabric covers and (2) an improved base layer of pocket coils.

One rule of thumb about the chart, Amazon will list the Sealy options using the same designations: Essentials, Performance or Premium. They will not offer as many firmness options, but at least you know the Sealy apple compares favorably to the Amazon apple.

Keep in mind that the higher end versions, regardless of the “line,” will include the “Posturepedic” technology. Sealy’s innovation specifically offers more support where most bodies are heaviest—in the center. It is meant to keep that heavier part to keep your spine aligned. That doesn’t guarantee better contouring from head to toe, but it does give you that firm support where you need it most.

Traditionally, Sealy has offered economical options to the masses that are consistently known for a firm and bouncy feel. After developing the posturepedic technology, it also offered a sturdier version less likely to prematurely begin sagging in the middle since the middle was reinforced.

When you’re a national player in the mattress retail world like Sealy is, you have to reinvent your mattresses every once in a while. That is what Sealy has done here for 2017. The fact that the mattresses are affordable and easy to find at retailers across the country is a major draw.
