Key Performance Indicators KPI question mark

Our Key Performance Indicators are produced using a combination of specification-heavy algoritmic data points and user reviews. For example, a firm pocket spring support layer is more breathable and offers better back support but may prove unsuitable for side sleepers, the reverse is true for a soft-medium tension reflex foam support layer. This is one of 100+ datapoints considered when generating the below ratings.

Suitability

*Assuming average weight, suitability will vary dependant on body type, use the quiz above for a more tailored guide.
  • Back Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • The amount of support offered from a mattress will vary depending on the firmness of the tension and the type of support layer used. Based on a person of average build.
  • Side Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • If you sleep on your side you typically need a supportive tension that is not too firm, nor too soft. This is because your hips and shoulders need adequate sinkage.
  • Stomach Sleepers
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Stomach sleepers need a reasonable amount of tension in the base support layer to adequately offer body contouring and help prevent aches and pains. Results will vary based on your build.

Performance

  • Turning on mattress
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials like memory foam can make it difficult to move about on the mattress while you toss and turn. Same too for pillow tops which can create a cloud like sensation which can make manoeuvrability challenging.
  • Stability
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Depending on the type of support layer in place can have an impact on stability, edge to edge support and roll together prevention. Pocket springs of a firmer tension will have better stability than open coil soft tension, for example.

Odour

  • Initial Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Materials in mattresses, particularly memory foam and rolled bed-in-a-box mattresses can have an initial odour, this is typically short term and reduces considerably within 24 hours.
  • Long Standing Odour
    ★★★★★
    ★★★★★
  • Certain materials inside different mattresses can produce a small odour. Typically this is short term rather than long standing but there are minor exceptions.

What Makes The Sealy Activsleep Ortho Posture Pillow Top Mattress Great?

Part of Sealy's Activsleep range - designed for active lifestyles

Featuring high levels of orthopaedic support, to care for your back

The need for orthopaedic mattresses is increasing rapidly. They are becoming more popular due to the growing needs of people with back problems.Orthopaedic mattresses are designed to provide support to the spine and avoid the sagging that compresses spinal discs. They are often used for people suffering from back pain who need more support and for those with a history of back problems.

Responsive firmness, getting firmer as more pressure is applied

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

Sealy's PostureTech Core Support spring system provides and a firmer feel where you need it most

When we fall asleep, our muscles relax and what that does is it allows our body to decompress. But when we're sleeping on a too soft mattress, the muscles don't have enough support and they're not getting the proper relaxation.The benefits of a firm mattress are that you're going to sleep more soundly,  your back pain is going to be relieved and you're going to have less muscle aches and pains.

Luxurious pillow top for enhanced comfort

A pillow top works as a permanent additional comfort layer that sits at the top of your mattress offering an additional degree of thickness to help separate you from the base support layer. Ideal for those who want more softness and luxury that allows them to sink deeper.

Medium-firm support for the best of both worlds

A medium firm tension mattress is slightly firmer than your average medium mattress. This is ideal for those who either prefer a little bit more support, or, those that have a slightly higher BMI than average. You may also benefit from a medium firmness mattress where you are suffering from neck/back pain as the additional support can help prevent and alleviate these symptoms.

Sleep cooler and fresher, thanks to Adaptive technology

Adaptive helps reduce moisture and heat build-up, to prevent overheating as you sleep

Purotex probiotics help fight against dust mites and bacteria

Purotex is a uniquely engineered coating that has been proven to create a clean, fresh and hygienic sleeping environment by neutralising the bacteria that cause odours and allergies. With Purotex, you can take comfort in knowing you're giving your family the best night's sleep they'll ever have.

Hypoallergenic - a great choice if you suffer from allergies

Allergy sufferers often experience the problem of waking up in the middle of the night or having to get up in the morning with a stuffy nose and eyes. The reason why you wake up with a stuffy nose is because your mattress has accumulated dust mites, mould and mildew, all of which are allergens. The solution is a hypoallergenic mattress is made from materials that do not support mould or dust mites. They also have anti-microbial properties that effectively kill any bacteria that may come into contact with it.

Approved by Allergy UK

If you have allergies then you may want to consider a mattress like this. Approved by Allergy UK, this product has fillings that are approved for those that suffer from a host of common allergies and while there is no guarantee that this product will prevent allergies, it should prevent further problems for those that do suffer

Beautifully designed knitted cover, micro-quilted to lock in the fillings

This mattress comes with a quilted cover. Many people overlook the cover as a need for consideration however, the right cover can add additional comfort and in the case of this one here, adds quilted comfort that offers a soft but hard-wearing cover that is both breathable and stylish.

No need to turn over - simply rotate to keep it in great condition

Rotating the mattress remains an important step in maintenance. The comfort and support layers of a mattress settle over time and it is necessary to rotate at certain periods to help reduce risk of dipping while you sleep in the same patterns and locations across the mattress.

Depth: 26cm

The industry standard for mattress depth is 7 inches. With most offering a comfortable 10 to 14 inches, so this one at just under 10 inches is one of the most popular sizes. The higher the load, the deeper it needs to be but a quality mattress in this size can be equally as comfortable and supportive as a deeper budget mattress. 

Made in the UK

These are made and manufactured in the UK, meaning that they all meet the same exceptional quality and durability that we expect from genuine UK manufacturing.

5 year guarantee

A 5 year guarantee is quite rare in the industry and is a great indicator of the retailer beleiving in their product. Anything go wrong in the next 5 years, no drama, get it replaced.

PostureTech Core Support Springs

Providing even weight distribution, the PostureTech spring system feels soft then gradually gets firmer as pressure is applied. The entire spring unit is twice tempered, making it strong. Their Smaller diameter means they can fit more into an area, allowing for a more fine-tuned level of support.

Soft white fibres

White fibres tend to be a mixture of polester and other non-descript synthetic fibres

Pillow Top

Many mattresses that you see that look really plush, do so because they feature a pillow top. Benefits of a pillow top mattress are increased comfort and luxury styling. Downsides are they can be a bit of a pain to get sheets over properly

Knitted Cover

It is common in the industry to have a knitted cover, these covers can come in a variety of patterns but are typically hard wearing and do not present problems for consumers.

Orthopaedic Support

Do you suffer from back pain? If so you will likely find that an orthopaedic mattress will be massively beneficial to you. Slightly firmer in the comfort side of things but ultimately with a better support layer means that your back and neck will thank you for years to come.

Hypoallergenic

This product is unlikely to cause any sort of allergic reaction. Ideal if you suffer from any sort of allergy problems

Medium to Firm

Firmer than the average mattress, a medium to firm mattress is ideally suited to those that are looking for extra back support but still require and amount of comfort from their mattress. Ideally suited for a large range of the populus and becoming much more common, deviating away from the previous medium-for-everyone model.

26cm deep

26CM is a deep mattress. This sort of mattress may require a slightly deeper fitted sheet to avoid it constantly popping off. That aside, 26CM is above the industry average in terms of depth and while not necesserily a guarantee of quality, you cannot get comfort and quality from a thin mattress

Single-sided

Single sided means only one side is comfy. Positives are you only need to rotate the mattress occassionaly rather than the more cumbersome rotate and flip. Downside is the lifespan of the product may suffer as a result, only marginal, but worth mentioning.

Handcrafted in the UK

Handcrafted in the UK means that the product is built here, by people being paid a fair and honest wage using certified and safe products of good quality and construction. UK manufacturing is some of th best in the world and all of that is reflected in this product

Fire Resistant

Fire resistant does not mean the product will never catch fire, rather, it will not go up in flames quite so quickly. Resistant to fire in the same way that I am resistant to kisses, sooner or later you end up giving in.

Approved by the National Bed Federation

The NBF is one of the most prestigious awarding federations in the industry, helped slightly by the fact that it is one of the only, however, it is still a great source of comfort knowing that this product holds approval by the team

Customer Reviews For The Sealy Activsleep Ortho Posture Pillow Top Mattress

Based on 86 reviews

Changed my soft mattress to this Sealy, needed a firmer one to help support an annoying lower back pain. So far so good, I wanted it firm but not like a plank, the pillow top adds an additional comfort layer that seems to make it firm but comfortable.Definitely a good buy, I'm not cured yet but it's certainly improved and I'm sure I'm sleeping better!

5

This mattress is such great value for money, its supportive yet comfortable. My husband and I no longer suffer crippling back ache (Im a front sleeper and hes a side sleeper) we both have very physical jobs and since purchasing this beauty are also both getting a full restful nights sleep. Would HIGHLY recommend!

5

Very good quality mattress for the cost. Very happy with the materials used, level of firmness and how the pillow top provides that added bit of comfort. I was a bit nervous getting a pillow top as they can develop depressions over time, however after a month of use this mattress is holding up well so far.

5

Amazingly supportive mattress, really happy with my purchase, it's firm but not overly so. If, like me you are looking for an orthopedic mattress but don't want to sleep on a board I can recommend this Sealy one.As a bonus the pillow-top adds a lovely feeling of luxury and opulence.
