Why our sleep experts loved it
The Posturepedic-friendly Sealy Ortho Plus Gold Mattress is part of a new Ortho Plus range from Sealy and is designed specially for those who need orthopaedic products and services. What that means, is that this is not just another firm mattress, this is made to the tolerances necessary to be suitable for those who have orthopaedic needs.
Let us start by looking at the base layer of this mattress, it uses a PostureTech CS spring system that works with your weight and gives responsive and measured support that contours to your body and gives you necessary tension where you need it. It is not my favourite spring system, for that we look toward pocket spring options, however, it works well enough and provides long lasting support in a firm tension.
Onto the cover of the mattress and it is a more standard affair for the best part, a damask fabric is typical for the industry and works well to be both soft and durable. One thing that does stand out with the cover is that it features hand tufting. These tufts help secure the fillings in the mattress in a tight and compact manner and in turn make the mattress feel firmer through the comfort layer than you otherwise would. The result is a firm mattress, made firmer still through tufting, giving a orthopaedic style sleep that will provide relief to your back and neck provided you sleep on your back or stomach, for side sleepers we would perhaps recommend something with a medium tension.
Reviews are extremely positive with many commenting on the orthopaedic relief offered by the product with one commenter explaining that the spine problem they have is alleviated and the mattress offers a perfect means of relief. Other reviews suggest that the product is substantially deep and comfortable with a high performance to cost ratio.
Overall, a well priced mattress that ticks a lot of boxes for those that are looking for a firmer mattress with orthopaedic recognised support.
A 5 year guarantee should give further confidence that this mattress is worthy of investment and a testament to the care and detail put into the product from its world-renowned producer, Sealy.
This is a UK made and produced product that will appeal to those looking for home-grown quality.
