Why Our Sleep Experts Loved It

becky says

New for their mid-range comes a reasonably priced product from Sealy that will suit those who are looking for an orthopaedic mattress. Some people really like firm support in a mattress and will naturally be drawn to this product, while others will need orthopaedic support due to back or neck problems. 

Let’s start by looking at who this product will suit. With extra firm support, we’d typically argue this is a specialist product that is only going to be necessary for a small segment of the population. While there are those who prefer firmer mattresses, we expect this product to satisfy a need other than comfort in that it should help with orthopaedic support.

That brings us nicely onto who this product is unsuitable for, and the answer is almost universally everyone who does not fit into the category above. See, side sleepers won’t typically find this suitable and should instead consider a medium tension rating that will have more “give” and allow your hips and shoulders to sink into the mattress.

So where is the Sealy Ortho Plus Essential Mattress in the market from a price standpoint? Surprisingly low to mid-tier with all sizes coming in comfortably under £500 including the super king. But what of the quality? The reviews corroborate that this mattress from Sealy clearly outperforms its price point, with an ortho wound support layer of CoreSupport springs unique to Sealy paired beautifully with a hand tufted soft white fibre comfort layer.

From a firmness perspective, when placed on a ranking system between 1-10 with 10 being the firmest and 1 being the softest, we would rate the tension at 9. We’ve personally seen firmer, but not by much. The tension is board like by design and does not have much movement at all.

Customer reviews are great, with both a high review amount combined with a high review rating. At present, the Sealy Ortho Plus Essential Mattress has over 180+ reviews and an impressive 4.8/5.0. The result is this becomes one of the most desirable and well reviewed orthopaedic firm mattresses in the market right now, particularly at this lower price point. Customers particularly enjoyed the good value for money paired with great quality, neither of which will surprise anyone given what we have talked about. Ultimately though, the majority of people all say the same thing, that is is as firm as they would expect given the description and that the product exceeds expectations given the price.

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

  • 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.

Calendar Icon Radar Analysis Radar Analysis Question Mark

Radar Analysis looks at the product, brand and retailer against base norms established within the industry and determines where the product sits by way of established performance metrics.

What Makes The Sealy Ortho Plus Essential Mattress Great?

PostureTech CS Springs

Unique to Sealy, the PostureTech CS  stands for Core Support and is a single stage support system that allows for 6 turns of conformance and twin-tempered support that is rigid and reliable, standing the test of time and providing long term support.

Soft white fibres

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

27cm Depth

27cm is a pretty decent depth for a mattress. Not too thick that you need specialist covers and sheets, nor too thin that you're left questioning the quality of the product. While 27cm is not in itself a guarantee of quality, it's a fairly good indicator though and you'll be able to utilise existing bedding.

Extra firm support

An extra firm tension mattress is typically suited toward back and front sleepers as they provide a stable and even surface with a focus toward those who enjoy sleeping "on top" of their mattress rather than sinking into it.

Damask cover

Damask is a fabric, woven in nature that is often used to upholster mattresses. It is typically made from linen or cotton and can typically be woven into delivate detailings required by the supplier. The fabrics are typically fairly hard wearing and should not cause problems

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.

Reinforced Edges

Reinforced Edges provide a higher density area around the mattress supplying a stronger resistance to pressure.  As well as preventing the mattress from sagging and extending its lifespan the firmer edges give you extra usable space and edge to edge support.

No Need To Turn

This means that the product does not need to be turned over, but make no mistake, that is not the same as saying a product does not need to be rotated. If you do not want dips in your mattress with time, be sure to rotate evenly every month where possible

Pressure Relieving

Due to the support structure in place within this mattress it advertises as benefiting from pressure relieving properties. The way a mattress can achieve this is through the use of a good quality spring system that can contour to the body, providing tension equally across all areas of the body dependant on sleeping position and pressure

Hypoallergenic

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

Hand Tufted

A tufted mattress is often a sign of high quality, Unlike quilted mattress which binds the soft layer directly to the other layers, traditional tufting uses several thick straps to hold the layers together through the spring unit, binding it at each side.

NBF Approved Product

NBF stands for the National Bed Federation and is at the forefront of standards and legislation in the UK bed industry, these guys oversee the entire bedding industry with their mark and brand only being associated to those that follow a certain criteria of care and standards.

Customer Reviews For The Sealy Ortho Plus Essential Mattress

Based on 181 reviews

Went back to this mattress after 8 years with a memory foam mattress. So firm and comfortable. Back to a good nights sleep .Dec 2020 - the mattress has dipped on partners side and he says his hips hurt in the morning, I too am struggling with aches in the morning. Mattress bounces with every turn you make in the bed. Not what I expected after less than 2 years.

5

I was concerned buying a mattress online and from a website rather than a shop website. So happy I did. Mattress is very comfy. It's nice and firm. Usually I need to read before I fall asleep now I am sound asleep in minutes. Genuinely a very good mattress

4

Feels firm indeed, after moving from a medium-firm memory foam top mattress. Took a week to get used to this new one, but it does support my back better. Hopefully the firmness will stay over time, but still a good value buy for a sealy mattress.

4

Mattress was delivered on time and the delivery driver was very helpful. The mattress is comfortable and probably a 4 rather than a firm 5 this suites us and were enjoying a good nights sleep. We would recommend this mattress ;-d

5

So far so good. Decided to go back to a conventional mattress after years of memory foam ones that never really made the mark. (2 was returned as 'rubbish') sealy is a leading brand so that's what I went for. Time will tell.

5

Very good mattress - I was looking for a medium-firm mattress as I prefer these ones and this fit perfectly. It is also quite high which is a bonus too! great service. Ordered mattress online and it arrived within 2 days!

5

It's fine for the money and for a guest bed. I would spend more for a more luxurious and comfortable mattress for my room but still a sealy as I really rate their product anc price pponts and have them on all my beds now.

5

This looks like a quality product. We bought it for a visitors bedroom and as yet,, in these covid times, we have yet to have visitors.However I have every confidence in the product, hence have given it 5 stars.

5

Mattress is good quality and well designed. I had back pain for a few months due to old mattress for more than 10 years. The pain is now gone and I have a good night sleep. Thanks for the design. Recommend!

5

For the price I got this I am very happy. I've only had it a week but have no concerns. I have nothing to compare the firmness too, but it feels firm and comfortable . I'm happy so I can't fault it.

5

Great product. Zip and lock ( in effect 2 single mattresses joined together by a central zip) was the best option for us as a single super king mattress was too big and too heavy to carry upstairs.

5

Feels very comfortable. Has the look of a more expensive mattress. Bought it for my housemate but wish it was for me! had sealy in the past, and I will probably get another in years to come.

4

Overall a good mattress for the price. I am a adult male around 90kg, for me, firm should be a little firmer than this one. Also, could do with some handles since it needs to rotated.

5

Love love love this mattress, purchased as was getting back pain from my previous one, this one is firm but comfortable & no more back pain - take my money! recommend to anyone :)

5

Firm traditional matress.Bought for teenagers bed, as the previous foam one I bought 6 months ago is completely useless and unsuitable for teenagers who use their bed as sofa etc
