Sealy

Sealy has formerly separated from Silentnight, who once managed the UK arm of the popular retailer and will now be re-acquired by Tempur Sealy International. For those who don’t know, Sealy is the world's biggest bed brand that’s not down to luck, Sealy mattresses are highly regarded and at a price point that is achievable for the vast majority of people. What’s more, the company produces handmade beds right here in the UK using some of the finest fillings and upholstery.

Sealy’s Posturepedic technology makes it ideal for those with back and neck pain looking for that additional bit of support, becoming the only partner to be approved under the Orthopedic Advisory Board

Dormeo

Dormeo first popped up on our radar back in the early 2000’s, finding different avenues to market than traditional with their frequent TV advertising and push toward their own independent store over the conventional retailer derived market. Selling typically mid to high range products there are a few things that stand out with the Dormeo offering that competitors lag behind on, namely split tension and the way customers can adjust the firmness of their mattresses themselves via included replacement pads.

Regardless of your budget, there’s likely to be something suitable for a reasonable price point.

Sealy Owner Satisfaction

Satisfaction is at the heart of what Sealy offers. Since their inception Sealy has offered numerous different base and comfort layers to try and appease all areas of the market. The company has largely remained successful in their plight thanks to their strong support within the mid-tier market. Customers are most satisfied with the company's firm orthopaedic mattresses, for which they have become renowned.

Sealy Supportiveness

The Sealy lineup includes everything from soft through to firm tensions. The most popular in the range are the mediums which give the best overall support for most people, pairing well with the pocket spring support layer to offer full body contouring for all-round support without feeling too-firm.

For those looking for a bit more support, Sealy has firmness grades exceeding firm and entering extra-firm territory. We would personally recommend these only for specific circumstances as comfort is reduced slightly to better aid support.

Sealy Durability

When it comes to durability Sealy performs in line with expectation. We do see a bit of fallout from some of the cheaper in the range, particularly the open coil sprung models which, combined with a single sided comfort layer often do not have long-lasting properties and may not afford as good value as initially perceived due to their reduced operating lifespan. Contrary to this is the excellent pocket sprung options on offer from Sealy, particularly when paired with a double sided comfort layer. A combination of these will ensure you get a long standing mattress that will last far better and in-line with the average expectancy where people typically look at replacing their mattress (7 years)

Dormeo Owner Satisfaction

Satisfaction among customers appears to be high for Dormeo mattresses. This is unsurprising given the high quality materials and primary materials of latex, memory foam and pocket springs. Customers particularly enjoy the different firmness levels offered within each purchase. Where conventionally you would purchase a mattress and be left with the firmness chosen, Dormeo have gone a step further and developed removable pads that adjust the tension to a suitable level which, being a common complaint otherwise, assures satisfaction.

Customer reviews for Dormeo mattresses are fairly impressive and with impressive market leading warranties this trend looks set to continue.

Dormeo Supportiveness

Support is something very unique to Dormeo due to its split tension dual core mattresses. This specialist lineup allows you to have multiple tensions within one mattress, simply flip over to achieve a different degree of support and comfort.

Traditionally we judge a mattress manufacturer's support by the layer denoted to it and in the case of Dormeo this looks to be primarily pocket springs as a base layer. Pocket springs are market leading and outperform equivalent open coil and reflex foam units, they achieve this by having better body contouring, less settlement issues and better durability.

Dormeo Durability

Much of the Dormeo lineup comes with anything from 10 year to 20 year warranties. Regardless of which mattress you choose and which of the warranties you receive, it will still be toward the absolute top percentile in terms of warranty coverage. This is important because without a warranty you will be unprotected in the years that follow and since the average mattress is replaced after 7 years, a 10-20 year warranty goes a fairly long way in determining the expected above-and-beyond lifespan of such a product. Combine the great warranty with market-leading support and comfort layers and you are left with an extremely durable mattress that will provide you with a great night's sleep for a decade to come.

I wanted to 'wait' before posting my review as I was told by my chiropractor it takes around a month for your body to adjust to a new mattress...Having experience a back impact injury February 2016, I have been VERY impatient for it to be resolved quickly. This not being the case!This is my 3rd mattress tried and I must say the 'only' one that has made a difference :) (In saying that I have also had to purchased several pillows, 9 to date, in order to alleviate my pain fully.)I adore the firmness of the mattress and 'feel' I am getting the support in the correct place. I literally sleep the whole night through. I had been waking feeling a little stiffness, but this has now gone. The tightness in my middle back is definitely reduced, as my 'monthly deep tissue massage' is testament to.I'm pleased that the mattress is deep and had no problem getting a fitted sheet to cover it. With a mattress protector nor did I notice the button detail mentioned by several people- I just do not feel them. It was no issue for me- I'm getting (finally) a great night's sleep :)The handles on the sides have made it easier to manhandle, although it is quite hefty, we managed. I have not yet had to turn it.I did do my research however prior to buying, both with comparing prices to other sites (this one is TRULY exceptionally competitively priced!!) and with reading other people's reviews to make my final selection.What can I say... I am a VERY satisfied customer, getting probably a better night's sleep than I did prior to my injury and would thoroughly recommend my purchase :)

This is the probably the third or fourth Sealy mattress we have bought over the years - we have never been disappointed. This particular purchase was to replace the 30 year old mattress we have had since we were married, that had been relegated to the spare room - it needed replacing ! Our current mattress in our main bedroom is a king size posturetech Sealy mattress which is extremely comfortable and we thought any house guests deserve the same. Both myself and my wife have various arthritic joints and the mattress gives good, comfortable support when sleeping. I have slept on the new mattress a few times now, and would rate it's firmness as definitely the firmer side of medium, rather than the 'medium' stated - but I have always preferred a firmer mattress so no complaints from me. To sum up, a well made mattress, reasonably priced for the quality, and most importantly, comfortable and supportive.

I like the topping. It provides a soft comfortable layer to lie on. So far hasnt flattened. I had it a month ish. Look's quality. Dosnt make my ribs ake when I lie on my front and i get back ake regular. From muscular n slip disc. But i sleep better on this. I would say the spring system is medium hard. Something like silent nights poket sprung award winner for this year. It dosnt envelop you like one i tryed. If your putting it on a slatted frame wood or other . I had to go and buy hard board to put over my frame to be able to use it . The spring system dose seem to give a little to become more soft after about a week. You may need deeper fitted sheets. The delivery men kindly took it to the top of the stairs for me. would have been to heavy for me alone.

After owning our past bed for 15 years decided to buy a new mattress. Took all day to try out beds at several different bed stores over town , before returning to Dreams. Very helpful staff offering lots of advice but giving us plenty of time to try beds and come to our decision. Even offered us a cup of coffee. Paid a deposit and given a delivery date on the spot. Bed arrived on day expected and even though a difficult spot up a narrow staircase to put the bed the two delivery men did it with no problem or complaint. Took a few days to get used to a different mattress, panicing at first we had made wrong decision but within the week was having the best sleep in years. Bad thing is its very hard to get out of bed in the morning !

Love this Sealy mattress. My partner now turns over in bed and I barely notice (unlike the tidal wave effect of our last mattress)due to the pocket springs. I prefer a medium to firm mattress and my partner an extremely firm one but we both find this mattress to be firm and supportive and yet the memory form is enough to make it comfortable when lying on your side. We are both having better nights sleep than we have in years. It feels larger as you can lie on it right to the edge without it collapsing and we are both over 6 feet tall and heavier than average adults. I have found some memory foam mattresses to feel hot and have a strange smell but this remains cool and a comfortable temperature and no noticeable odour.

At the beginning of 2020 my husband and I decided to retire our mattress and splurge on a new one. Three mattresses later (all of which caused aggravation and discomfort to an existing lower back issue that I have) and four months later, we trepidatiously bought a dormeo mattress, but prayed it would alleviate the issues I was having...... our prayers were answered! The mattress we purchased is a hybrid, with spring coils and a memory foam top; it is not too soft and not too firm, which is perfect for my lower back pain. Unlike the initial memory foam mattress, I actually sink into this one rather than just laying on top. It is easy and light enough to turn, asper the instructions, and the size is true to size standards; all of my original king sized sheets fit this mattress perfectly. Sorry for the long spiel, I'm just extremely happy with this mattress and my back is very thankful also.

I am very pleased with this mattress. It took some getting used to. Having slept on it for 3 months now, I can feel a difference in my back. The support it provides is excellent. It is unfortunate that I couldn't try the mattress before buying, but based on the description from Dormeo, I went for it. This mattress feels as good as other well known and more expensive memory foam mattresses. One negative is that there are no handles on the sides of the mattress to enable rotating it. So it is difficult to hold it to rotate. It comes rolled up, and then you open it and roll it out. But if I had any reason to return it, i don't believe i would ever be able to fit it down the stairs again. Fortunately that is not necessary for me, but worth considering before buying.

We purchased the soft/medium mattress and it is so comfortable. I suffer from back and joint pain and found it a real struggle getting comfortable at night and getting out of bed in the morning...we had a silentnight “orthopaedic” mattress it very uncomfortable and was anything but silent. It took a couple of weeks to get used to our new Dormeo mattress but we are so glad we invested in it. No more backache!!! We also purchased the memory foam pillows, again they are extremely comfortable but are not a standard size pillow which is a pain when trying to find pillowcases that fit. The only thing I can complain about is the heat that is generated from the mattress. I would highly recommend purchasing from Dormeo plus you can spread the cost over 3 months

Ordered this at the begging of May and received it within the last couple of weeks (been a delay due to coronovirus issues). The mattress has taken a couple of weeks to get used as took time to work out which side/firmness/ support suited me. Comfortable mattress, arrived in perfect condition. My only thing I would like to mention is that this mattress appears better suited for a couple Sharing a bed (obviously), as a single person it has taken a bit of time to break in and can sometimes be a little uncomfortable as I am using it alone. Neither the less a great comfortable mattress but feel it is better suited to a couple who will sleep on both sides, little more difficult to get comfortable as a single person sleeping in the middle.
