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

Harrison-Spinks

Harrison Spinks is a generational family business that has captured the spirit of the entire hand-made portion of the industry thanks to their traditional materials and handcrafting excellence. The range is of a much higher quality than many competing brands and as a result the price point is typically found within the higher-end but the result is a bespoke nights sleep that will ooze excellence.

Feedback initially looks like the standard lead time has returned across much of the lineup with the majority of the range made-to-order and on 6 week delivery schedules.

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)

Harrison-Spinks Owner Satisfaction

Customers have had universally favourable experiences with this brand which is quite impressive given the price point. Typically we find that when the price of mattresses starts to lead toward the high-end, customers' expectations can sometimes be distorted which results in a less-favourable experience. Thankfully that is not the case with many happy with the quality of the materials, in particular the wool top layer that often features and is both soft and luxurious, complementing the pocket spring base layer nicely.

Harrison-Spinks Supportiveness

The support materials utilised in all Harrison Spinks products is a reliable pocket spring base layer. Pocket springs continue to be the best option for support, offering measured and reliable body contouring across the entire mattress and featuring edge to edge even support and roll together prevention.

Firmness within the range varies but has a pivot toward medium and medium firm tension mattresses all of which are made from luxurious materials and hand made in the UK. Interestingly, Harrison Spinks is the partner of choice for many of the sub-brands sold throughout the popular retailer. The result of this is a Flaxby & Feather and Black sub-division of quality mattresses that will be of equal interest to those looking for a good quality and highly rewarding nights sleep.

Harrison-Spinks Durability

I think the most important stat when it comes to durability is around the warranty and guarantee periods. After all, if the manufacturer doesn’t believe in their product, why would you? Thankfully you get a 5 year guarantee at minimum across the majority of products on show which comes fairly close to the average replacement period of 7 years for the industry as a whole.

Durability generally doesn’t look to be a concern as both the reviews and compounds used suggest positive experiences with longevity.

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.

After reading reviews I was sceptical as I was worried the edges would give in. On the first day I sat at the edge and it did leave a dent where I had been sitting but moments later it sprung back to original shape. For me this mattress is perfect. I needed a firm mattress and to add a little extra softness I bought a mattress topper. Very good night's sleep.

I have been looking for a good quality pocket mattress for a while, needed one that was firmish to support my back, but didn't want to feel like the floor.After speaking with the a sales person they steered me in this direction and I couldn't be happier.My back is liking the mattress as is my sleep. A good buy.

5 Verified Buyer

Mattress manages to be wonderfully supportive but wonderfully soft at the same time. I've always bought firm mattresses, and this feels like a good supportive orthopaedic but with a softer topper. It's the most comfortable I've ever had, and I'd definitely buy this brand again in future.

5 Verified Buyer

Very deep and has lot's of comfort. Thought it was going to be firmer. but I'm sleeping really good and have no aches or pains so think it's working out for me.The mattress is really well made and feels like it will last forever.Note it is very heavy, so turning it is a bit of a hassle.

5 Verified Buyer

Never invested so much in a mattress before, I'm happy I did, wanted a quality natural mattress. It soft in the right way, like sleeping on a cloud but you do get support with the springs.Importantly we can't wait to go to bed and wake up feeling ready for the day.
