When it comes to buying a new mattress, there are so many considerations that must be made. From size and feel, to price and comfort level, it can be a challenge to find the perfect fit. For those who need something that’s not too hard or soft but instead is just right, the Sealy Elevate Ultra Daito Mattress could be the perfect solution for those looking to improve their sleep.
The Sealy Elevate Ultra Daito is a new mattress from Sealy and is part of their new Elevate mattress range, featuring a higher density comfort layer made of deeper and more luxurious materials than comparable products of old. See, Sealy is going through a bit of a rebrand at present and has launched a new range of better performing products that enter at a different price banding to their predecessors. Does the new range justify the higher pricing? Let’s dive in and find out.
Who is the mattress for
Most people don’t really know what to look for in a mattress. There are many different terms that are used to describe different aspects of a mattress, and it can get confusing. Sealy hasn't made this much easier with the Sealy Elevate Ultra Daito Mattress with wording like AlignSupport® and ProShield®. However, there are fundamentals in this mattress that are consistent and can create a better sleeping experience.
To start, this is a firmer tension mattress which is in line with the expectations given when dealing with a Sealy Posturepedic patented mattress like this one. The AlignSupport springs do a great job in offering full body contouring and additional structure to the mattress that will appeal to those who sleep on their stomach or back.
When it comes to comfort you are getting what looks to be a plush top mattress which means you are getting twice the comfort layers for better sinkage into the product while appealing to those who like to be cocooned in their bed while sleeping. More specifically, in the instance of the Sealy Elevate Ultra Daito Mattress you get generic soft foam combined with two layers of MemorySense ComfortCare foam which moulds to your every movement, reacting instantly to help provide a good degree of softness.
Who is the mattress not for?
Side sleepers may struggle to find comfort with this type of mattress as the base layer has an orthopaedic firm support and while this will be offset by the numerous comfort layers found in this plush top mattress, it will likely not suffice for those who sleep continually on their side with an average BMI.
Others who might not find this mattress suitable are those on a more limited budget. Sealy has restructured their entire mattress division with a focus toward the more premium end and in doing so has created a high end premium product that is priced accordingly. While finance is offered for those looking to spread the cost, the mattress proves to be quite a large investment.
What is the level of firmness experienced as a scale of 1 to 10?
The firmness and tension offered within the Sealy Elevate Ultra Daito Mattress comes in at a 7 on the firmness scale We’ve definitely felt firmer, perhaps in large point thanks to the deep and luxurious dual comfort layers that sit above the springs helping to keep an amount of that board-like feel of the springs at bay while still offering all the same orthopaedic qualities.
What do other customers say?
Customer long term feedback will take a while to come in as the product is still so new. That said, initial reviews are looking particularly strong with customers enjoying their new sleep experience and commenting on the great build quality and value for money offered in getting such a high quality product at a fair market price. What’s more, consumer feedback is strong with others enjoying the firmer tension on offer while the breathable comfort layers provide for an all-season cooling experience.
What is the availability of the product, is it sold elsewhere?
The Sealy Elevate Ultra Daito Mattress is sold exclusively through the popular retailer Dreams and while this specific model cannot be purchased elsewhere, we have found the Elevate range to be a core part of the brand's new collection that you can get elsewhere in varying different tensions to support.
