Overview

becky says

The Sealy Posturepedic Backcare Extra Firm Mattress is probably one of the better named in the Sealy range, making it pretty explicit the point of this mattress and whom the audience it may suit.

Predictably, this is an extra firm mattress and part of the posturepedic range, a range that focusses on firm mattresses with an aim to reduce tension and pain in the back and neck by offering contoured support that focuses on relieving muscle hotspots across your body.

An exclusive mattress, this is unlikely to be found among other retailers and is the firmest mattress from Sealy to date.

Orthopaedic care is an ongoing concern for many looking for a firmer feel mattress and this particular product delivers, allowing you to enjoy an extra firm mattress with enhanced support for your back, helping to ensure correct spinal alignment and ensuring that you get a fantastic nights sleep for many years to come.

Hand tufting and rod edge support mean that you are able to get a firm feel across the entire space of the mattress. That means reduced roll-off and no roll-together, allowing you to stick to your space and utilise it how you see fit without impairing partners and without having to stick to a specific spot that is away from the mattress edge.

With exceptional quality from a best selling brand, this one is going to be hard to beat. I've personally tried many of the Posturepedic range and find them all to offer fantastic back support while still offering enough comfort to enjoy sleep effectively.

Reasons to Buy

Orthopedic support at a more realistic price point for many.

We really like the PostureTech Core Support spring system, its one of Sealys more popular spring systems that works really well in this combination. It's fairly low tech and lower in the range than others, but it performs well enough to not matter.

Cracking 5 year guarantee will give you protection for most of the lifespan of a typical mattress.

Reasons to Avoid

Sealy use a lot of clever marketing words to make it seem more impressive than it is. That isn't to say it isn't worth the money but don't buy into "power packs" and "smart fibers". Ultimately it's a firm mattress with a basic but suitable spring system that is paired with breathable white fiber fillings that are bouncy, deep and soft.

  • 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.

What Makes The Sealy Mellbreak Ortho Plus Mattress Great?

Exclusive to Mattress Online!

This mattress is unique to Mattress Online, that means you are unlikely to find anyone else selling (or discussing) this mattress. So take a look at the reviews and specifications to make your purchasing decision. 

Exceptional level of extra firm, orthopaedic support

Firm Tension Support Mattresses are suited to those who prefer sleeping on their front and back. Typically sleeping on your back helps ensure the spine remains aligned throughout the night and is the most natural sleeping position that can prevent twisting and turning. A firm mattress ensures that a high level of support contours around your body, alleviating pressure across your entire frame in a more even manner than that of a soft mattress, most notably in the hips, neck and shoulders.Finally, if you are suffering from neck or back pain, a firm mattress can help alleviate these problems and result in a better and more relaxed sleep for many years to come.

The firmest mattress that Sealy manufactures

Firm Tension Support Mattresses are suited to those who prefer sleeping on their front and back.

Sealy's PostureTech Core Support springs provide remarkable support

The PostureTech Core Support System is a revolutionary and totally unique product that finally addresses the root cause of back pain and neck pain. The system is an innovative mattress design that will help your back by providing the correct amount of support and alignment, allowing you to sleep more comfortably.

Featuring Power Pack support for the lumbar region - caring for your back

Part of the iFibre layer and exclusive to Sealy, this central zoning offers additional pressure relief and support that will help support your back and neck to give a more well-rounded relief that will leave you waking up feeling refreshed.

Edge Guard for enhanced stability and durability

Edge support offers a sturdy border across all edges of the mattress and gives you the opportunity to sleep in more positions and fully spread out on the product, embracing each and every part of the mattress and not having to stick to the middle. This is because the edging is reinforced and gives you that feeling of stability and roll-off prevention while you sleep.

Single-sided for easy care: simply rotate

A single sided mattress is typical for the industry and relates to how  a mattress has the comfort layer on one side of the mattress. only This means that the mattress only needs to be rotated rather than flipped. The benefit of single sided mattresses is that they require less upkeep in that there's no flipping, but also, there's less components involved in the creation which saves costs.

Tufted for improved support and longevity

Hand Tufting is a labor intensive process that involves securing the fittings to a mattress rather than having them operate independently and loose within. This small act not only secures, but also leads to the mattress lasting longer and feeling firmer. A hand-tufted mattress is great for anyone looking for additional stability while they sleep.

Elegant damask cover

A damask cover is a quilt or blanket that has a pattern of small, repeated designs. These small designs are usually made from blocks of color. A damask cover can be made from many different types of fabric, such as cotton, satin and silk.The patterns on the damask covers can be simple or elaborate. The patterns can be made up of one color or a variety of colors.The name “damask” comes from the city of Damascus in Syria. The first damasks were woven in this city.

Sealy Smart Fibres offer a fresher sleeping environment

The smart fibre comfort layers sit at the top of the mattress above the springs or reflex foam (depending on model) and offer a breathable layer to help regulate temperature throughout the product and keep you cool while you sleep.

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

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.

Reinforced mattress edge

One of the most common complaints in the industry is against mattresses with a weak mattress edge. It can often result in the user feeling like they are going to fall off the side of the bed and bed avoided. This mattress has a reinforced edge, something that helps ensure that particular scenario is avoided when you get close to a mattress edge while sleeping.

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.

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

Extra firm

Extra Firm mattresses are great for those that have a heavier BMI than average, or, for those of average of higher BMI that suffer from back pain. If you find yourself sleeping on your side, or you are of a lower BMI, you may want to consider a lower firmness mattress as this will likely not be suitable.

25cm deep

A 25cm mattress is a good depth for a product of quality. Plenty of room for some good quality springs and enough space for a good top layer of comfort. This side of product should just about fit a standard sheet but do not be surprised if you find you do need to upgrade to a deeper fill sheet to fit over the 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.

Includes turning handles

Oh turning handles are pointless I hear you say. Just try flipping and turning this product without handles. It can be a pain. Remember that mattresses should be both rotated and flipped frequently, not a problem if you are opting for a sinle, but those doubles and kings can get heavy. Handles are very good.

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 Mellbreak Ortho Plus Mattress

Based on 773 reviews
5

Lovely thick mattress, nice and firm but still comfortable. Good support so far but time will tell. My husband is a heavy man so mattresses tend to wear quickly. It is the first time we have bought a really expensive mattress so fingers crossed. Buying this in the sale was the only way we could afford such a good quality mattress. Both of us suffer badly with bad backs and this mattress has helped greatly. We also bought a nice Sealy mattress topper, which added some softness to it. Couldnt sleep on it without as we both have arthritis in hips and knees. Pricey but at 60% off it was a bargain

5

We ordered the firm mattress because of back problems, it has really helped in this area, we should say that it softens after a little use. We love the fact that the sides have extra support which makes getting in and out of bed far easier. After reading other reviews we bought a memory foam topper which made it a little easier to sleep on. We cannot fault the delivery men, they called before arriving, unwrapped the new mattress and placed it on the bed, used the plastic cover over the old mattress and took it away, an excellent service. Would definitely recommend and good value for the money.

5

I have been a Sealy fan for more than 20 years. I knew this brand because of a trip in Thailand (Sheraton hotel if I remember correctly) and I started to search for the product, since then I have been using Sealy and this is my 4th Sealy Mattress, 3 in HK and the fourth in UK. And my whole family including my Mom, my 2 kids are using Sealy (both in HK UK). It is no doubt, a very value for money product. The presence of Sealy helps a lot for my new move, to settle in, in a new country. Please take this as my thanks and appreciation.

5

very good supportive mattress has solved wife's tailbone issue.previously had he Luna Memory 1000 (Which Recommended) mattress just awful with no edge support it deformed the mattress over time replaced after barely 1 yr of use.I've had this mattress in the past albeit a larger size and have come back to this as its the best for us with proper edge support used with a Sealy mattress topper I tend to fall asleep very quickly.I could not recommend the Sealy mattress enough. Firm great edge support and good height.

5

I've had this mattress before I moved homes and knew it had helped my back instantly. However in the hurry of a new home, this one wasn't able to fit in with the move-in date I wanted so I had to order a different mattress (not this one) which was awful and I was in pain. I gave it a chance but knew I had to search for this same one again and buy it to replace it. I could not be any happier and knew it will be my go-to for firmness, even spread of support and also suits my 6ft 6 half's stature.

5

I like a firm mattress, due to a serious back injury in my teens. I'm now 51 and suffer from constant back ache, although I'm very fit, healthy and cycling is my life, covering 150 miles a week and weigh 73kgs at 5'11". The mattress is pure quality and after using a memory foam (never again) it is very firm, comfortable and I sleep like a top.! People who suffer with their back and I know there are 1000's will love this mattress. Those like a firm comfortable mattress will too.

5

Having suffered on and off for a few years now with a mysterious lower back pain which would come and go for no reason, I decided to invest (after 12 years!) in a new Sealy mattress - within a day, I noticed the difference - no back pain and no feeling of 'weakness ' as if it could go at any time. At the same time, I bought a new supportive pillow ... best decision ever! It's a very firm mattress, with no roll to the centre and I can actually feel my back realigning.

5

Excellent mattress - the firmest I've tried in a long time. And the edges don't bow when you sit on it (I'm a 58kg woman so don't expect that to happen - but it has, even with "firm" mattresses, in the past). This mattress says "extra firm" and it actually IS that. This definitely isn't always the case in my experience. I need a mattress that is a step up from sleeping on a carpeted floor. This is it. Best nights sleep in a long time.

5

Had this mattress for a month now. It's solid! If you want a hard, supportive bed, buy this one. For the first week I had trouble sleeping on it as it is super hard. I still sleep on top of the duvet for extra comfort. I suffer terrible with my lower back and this has given me comfort to sleep flat on my back. I can't sleep on my sides however.It is very solid though and so far hasn't dipped when sitting on the edge or anything.

5

Very firm, supports entire frame but takes some days to get accustomed to.After almost a year of broken sleep after an injury this mattress held me together well enough that I slept a solid ( and dream filled) 8 hours.I'm quite light, 8 stones so expected a paving slab like feel, so was very surprised at the give this mattress has without compromising firmness.Excellent. Requires turning every 4 weeks

5

Bought this mattress as wanted a really firm design due to sleepless nights and back ache from previous well known brands. I found the mattress very firm and almost uncomfortable for the first few nights and after that once used to it, it is perfect for what I need. No more backache and a good nights sleep. The mattress stays firm with no roll together, so very happy with it.

5

Best nights sleep for a long time.No aches when I get up in the morning now.Wished we got one of these years ago.I was a bit concerned as my husband likes a firm mattress, and I always go for a medium one, but as he was complaining of a bad back every morning, and me having aches in my hip, all these aches have now gone.It is very comfortable, not hard, just more support.

5

We needed an extra firm supportive mattress and this mattress has certainly met our requirements. There is individual support with no roll together effect. If you like 'very firm' this is the mattress to choose. This mattress is to be rotated on a regular basis (not turned over) and there are two adequate material handles on either side to be able to do this.

5

This mattress is nice and high as I have a low bed. It's nice and hard, had this mattress for 3 days and I haven't woken up with a back pain so far. I use to get terrible back ache with my previous mattress which was a foam based one but I can't fault this one. It's a very firm bed and something I have to get the used to but no pain which is excellent.

5

Really happy with my purchase, wanted a firm orthopaedic mattress and this fits the bill perfectly. I have suffered lower back pain for a number of years now. This will be my third mattress and finally I think I have found one that helps. I've been sleeping on the mattress for about 2 weeks now and have noticed a definite improvement, espesially in the mornings.

5

As a slightly large than normal person who also does strongman a good mattress is a must for sleeping and supporting the back. My last memory foam started to collapse after a year and ended up causing bad neck/back pain etc. Since buying this one, which is extra firm, i have sleeped like a baby neck pain has gone and i cant fault it all. Would highly recommend!!!

5

Wonderfully firm, as advertised. Also very comfortable, which helps!Weve had Sealy Posturepedic mattresses for many years, but this is the best so far. I no longer have a stiff back when I get up in the morning; and we both sleep very well.Also like the fact that we no longer have to flip the mattress, just rotate it. Much easier for ageing old folk!

5

Very solid, there's no sagging when you sit on the edge. If you want a very hard mattress, it's this one. If you aren't sure about buying one online, because you've not tried it, get this one anyway and if you find it too hard, put a topper on it. I'll never spend 3x the money in a mattress shop again.

5

I've had a bad back for years, I wanted a really firm supportive mattress, this looked perfect so thought I would give it a go.Really pleased with my purchase, I still have some back issues but it's miles better. As an added benefit I'm getting a better nights sleep too.Would highly recommend.

5

Mattress may be extra firm but it is not like lying on the floor hard,it just gives your joints support and helps if you have any sort of problem. I have Arthritis pretty bad in all joints but also M.S. It is for heavy weights but also light weights my husband is lighter than me. Love my new mattress.

5

At first I thought the mattress was to firm and I thought Id made a mistake buying it but after my first night sleep I totally changed my mind.Great support for my lower back, I am sleeping right through and waking up with no pain.Highly recommend this mattress if you suffer with lower back pain.

5

Really firm ...good support for my back and hips. Good price...was concerned it was much cheaper than other I had looked at that it would be terrible. But have had this brand before same mattress for 15 years and it was still serving me well, I just needed a smaller bed. Perfect. Would recommend.

5

A good comfortable mattress, I previously had a "posture" type which I liked but wanted something a little firmer. This Sealy mattress seems to answer the problem. Time will tell.As previously stated, I would recommend both the Sealy Posturepedic mattress and MattressOnline to anyone.

5

This is a superb very firm mattress- it doesn't collapse when u sit on the side of the bed- I can't even feel my husband turning over ! Really enjoyable and restful sleep - probably not everyone's " cup of tea" as it is very firm , but honestly it is so comfortable .

5

The fact that at last I have found a mattress that says what it does! I have major back issues and it really is making a difference to my posture. it is a solid item, that doesn't bow in the middle, or caves in at the edges either! Also fortunate to buy it whilst it was on offer.

5

Very comfortable with good level of firmness. Excellent value for money. We initially bought smaller (double) version for my adult son and were so impressed when time came to renew our king size and my other son's single mattress we went with the same make/model. Very satisfied.

5

I've suffered with a bad back for years. From the first nights sleep, not once have I woke with a bad back or needed to get out of bed gradually taking time to walk without difficulty! I have been amazed how badly I needed to replace the mattress to get a good nights rest.

5

This is a fantastic mattress if you have back issues. Its very firm and gives great support. It did take a little getting used to as its firmer than our previous mattress, Id say around 2 weeks or so. Thereafter its been fantastic, a much better quality of sleep.

5

I have been suffering with constant back pain and costly visits to the chiropractor for 5 years. This was due to having a memory foam mattress (I assumed).The period that my assumption was correct is that since having my new mattress I have ZERO back pain. Hallelujah!

5

The mattress gives firm support but is not hard.The edges are well supported so that you do not roll off.It is a similar specification to my old mattress and that was from the same manufacturer.Overall,it is a good product and also good value for money.

5

it's a firm mattress.I'm about 100 kg so I was looking for something durable. This mattress is Exactly what I was after. Pain of the lower back is gone.It's been just month of using so will see in later future if will remain his qualities.

5

its very comfortable, and so nice being able to lay nearer the edge of the bed without falling off like you do with most mattresses. Being firm would give you the impression you wouldnt be comfortable like you would in a softer bed, but you are.

5

after suffering extreme back pain for years I purchased this and have no more pains trying to get out of bed of a morning. It is firm but is also very comfortable and I would recommend anyone who suffers from back pain to purchase one of these.

5

I was unsure how different mattresses can be but was pleasantly surprised the quality has made huge difference, my hubby has posture problems and he is loving it, he's 6ft and a generous size which this mattress is strong and comfortable

5

This matress has to be the most comfortablest matress we have ever used we fall to sleep very quickly and have trouble getting up in the morning due to it being so comfortable, it has the ability to keep you in bed which for us is a rarity.

5

Lovely supportive firm mattress which can be topped with a Sealy mattress topper to give a little cosyness :) I'm not bouncing around when my other half turns around during the night which is great knowing it's a sprung mattress.

5

We have purchased firm rated mattresses in the past and have been disappointed with the firmness around the edges of the bed. This is not the case with this mattress, the firmness is consistant in all areas. This suits us perfectly.

5

It is as firm as I have never ever had, but provides proper support for your back. Also it does not move you or wake you up when your partner turns, especially if you are a sensitive sleeper. Quite confortable sleep guaranteed.

5

The mattress is very firm but I have had 3 lower back operations so need a mattress like this. My wife has no back problems and finds it comfortable. After about 3 days the mattress does soften slightly. Ideal mattress for me.

5

I would like to recommend to those people who are looking for an extra firm and back care mattress. We did buy another extra firm mattress but it wasn't as good as this one and I don't think it can support our back.

5

Shopping experience was perfect from start to finish. Able to track my delivery on the day. Called 15 minutes before it arrived. Mattress is fanatastic. Best nights sleep in ages. Great value for money. Highly recommened.

5

My favourite bit is that l don't have to worry about coming home to a soft depressed bed from my kids jumping over it, after a hard days job my bed is a delight to go into again getting me 100% refreshed each morning.

5

I suffer from back and neck ache. The seally posturepedic mattress has relieved most of my symptoms. I also get much better quality sleep than I have before. Im very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend it.

5

Use this in our guest bedroom and everyone reports it as a great nights sleep. I have a back issue but find this really comfortable and cosy and supportive. Guests have gone away and bought the same mattress as a result !

5

It's extra firm the way we like it. I bought this for my daughter and she absolutely loves the extra support provided by the extra firm. Not everyone like extra firm especially if you don't sleep on your back.

5

The product is exactly as described by the merchant. We would recommend this mattress to anyone suffering with back problems. Secondly the price was amazing up to other prices we looked at. Overall highly recommended.

5

comfort and support aplenty; being pocket sprung, there's no roll together and we can each move around independently on the mattress (a definite bonus when one is drinking tea whilst the other gets in/out of bed)

5

very firm, no sagging, no aching back when rising in the morning, same good nights sleep every time. cant fault it, perhaps too firm for some but having fractured my spine it suits my posture perfectly. no brainer.

5

Abslolute best night's sleep I have ever had. Very firm - but not (as one review I read suggested) like sleeping on the floor.Excellent support.Wonderfully comfortable.If you love a firm mattress, go with this.

5

I sleep on my front or side and this is the best sleep I have had in a long time. Also very happy with speedy next day service and 1 hour delivery notice. I added a topper I had already and now have perfect comfort.

5

This is so comfortable, my old mattress must have been 20 years old and I had started to get a sore back each morning. First night I slept like a baby next morning no back ache and better still no back ache since.

5

EXCELLENT DELIVERY SERVICE WITHOUT ANY DAMAGES. EXCELLENT AND FIRM MATRESS, GOOD SUPPORT FOR BACK ALTHOUGH THE MATTRESS IS NOT LIKE SUPER HARD ROCK. WE HAVE IN LOVE WITH THIS MATRESS VERY MUCH SINCE WE BOUGHT IT.

5

The support is fantastic and yet it feels quite soft on top.I suffer from lower back pain and although still in pain from a recent flare up, the condition has been much reduced since sleeping on this mattress.

5

I have rheumatoid arthritis in my spine, arms and legs. I get a sound night's sleep with this mattress and actually wake up feeling refreshed. I used to sleep for about 8-9 hrs, but now only need 6-7 hrs.

5

The Matt reds is so comfortable, especially as I suffer from back problems. I genuinely wished I had purchased this mattress before now . It is just so so comfortable. From one very satisfied customer.

5

I struggle to sleep well at times. My last super soft mattress really didnt help as my back would start to ache after a few hours. I dont wake up with a back ache like the last soft mattress I had.

5

I have struggled with sleep for many years but I can fall asleep very quickly now. I never realised the value in investing in superior quality.I waken up rested, refreshed and not aching any more.

5

Excellent quality mattress which is very firm. On night 1, I was doubting our decision to go for the extra firm support but just two nights on we got used to it and now have the best night sleep.

5

Nice quality, and just as described. Was worried it would be too hard for me as my husband requires the firmness of the mattress, but I must admit since receiving it I've never slept better?

5

The back Support that the mattress give .the comfort.The good value for money .Iv had a back problem from the age 16 iv tried lot of mattress over the year this is the best mattress iv had

5

It is very comfortable in comparison to my last mattress which I only had just over 17 months (Silent Night) which was not supportive enough for a bad back. It is firm without being hard.

5

This is a very firm mattress but ideal for people with back problems like my husband. I really quite like the firmness and the fact it is quite thick and higher than standard mattresses.

5

A replacement for another similar Sealy mattress which we had had for several years and always found comfortable and supportive. This one seems as though it will do the same job too.

5

Great to have next day delivery. Item was in stock and ready. Item is very good value for money. Mattress is good for guests, as it's firm but not too firm. Excellent product.

5

Once I got used to the hard support it is great. It's even got handles. I'm twenty stone and am hoping it will last longer than the the last mattress...only time will tell.

5

Very firm, yet comfortable. Seems robust and made of high-quality materials. The handles on the sides are helpful. The price compared favourably with other mattresses I found online.

5

Bought this mattress for my Mum aged 83 years. She is really pleased with it, exactly what she wanted.Very firm but comfortable, has taken her only a couple of days to get used to.

5

A vast improvement on the memory foam mattress we previously had. A comfortable nights sleep now. The delivery was first class...we were kept in touch with the delivery throughout.

5

I suffer with back pain after sustaining a fracture in my back in March 2014. The new mattress support my back whilst I am sleeping and I am now sleeping much better than beforw

5

Very firm mattress, which won't be to everyone's taste but is perfect for me. I used to wake up each morning with back ache, that has gone completely with this mattress.

5

I have found this mattress to be the best we have ever purchased - I do like a mattress which is very firm and gives a lot of support and this one definitely ticks all the boxes

5

Bought one from a store for a family member. Back problem requires good support so based on that renewed my Sealy support mattress for a better Sealy firm support type.

5

Pricelessly good back support. The matress has cured me of the back pain that the previous (almost 4x more expensive) one was causing. Now wake up without a back ache.

Fantastic quality mattress. Very happy with our purchase - did take a week or so to get use to how firm it is - but definitely have less back aches in the morning.

5

Amazing! I love the mattress. I teach yoga so prefer a firm mattress to help me relax, this is wonderful. It only took one night to get used to the mattress for me.

5

Really supports lower back as we tend to buy soft mattresses naturally.Resolved all my back ache as I used to wake up feeling very tired and my body aching before.

5

rapid service-order to delivery was about 4 days(and it was delivered on time on the designated day)it is ver comfortable ( I combine it with a memory foam topper)

5

I have always used Sealey Mattresses, can not get any that are as good for comfort, support and life span. I have reccomended to friends who have since bought one.

5

The best thing about this mattress is its firmness and its very comfortable too. I would recommend this especially if you have back problems or are bedridden

5

Mattress it replaced was "similar" Sealy model but new mattress far more substantial, do believe it will give good service as did previous mattress.

5

I have a bad hip but after 10 mins on this mattress I'm out of any discomfort and completely pain free and for that reason alone it is worth every penny.

5

Excellent mattress, provides loads of support, firm, very well made and comfortable too for an ortho mattress. Also cheaper than I could find in any shops.

5

Nice and firm perfect for a bad back. Best nights sleep i have had for a long time. Would definitely recommend this matress well worth the money!

5

A really firm mattress that gives good support.It may not suit all, and takes a few days to get accustomed the firmness, but well worth the perseverance.

5

It's exactly as all the other reviews said it would be. I spent ages looking at options and this was the one we went for. It's worth every penny.

5

I was worried about getting an extra firm but it has been amazing for my lower back pain. I can really recommend it if you are suffering from back pain.

5

Very hard, comfortable mattress. Exactly what I was looking for !!! If someone is looking for a super hard mattress I would highly recommend this one :)

5

Bad back. I've tried couple of mattresses which didn't help. Its been a month since I've been using this mattress and I already feel better.

5

I suffer with syatica and since having this new mattress haven't had any problems. Wonderful. Very firm. Ordered one day delivery next. First class.

5

Thick and firm mattress-had it for a few weeks no sagging and sleeping well. I definitely have seen a reduction in back pain first thing in the morning.

5

Just what we were looking for a extra firm mattress. Have had Sealey mattress before, but this one was half the price of others that we have purchased.

5

Having a back problem, initially I thought this mattress would be too hard, the mattress gives me all the support and comfort for a good nights sleep

5

Very heavy duty. It takes a few weeks to soften up as it is so firm, but very supportive and is currently coping with two adults totalling 36 stone.

5

It was as as described! A very comfortable, extra firm mattress, that doesn't lose its shape, even though my partner is quite heavy. +++++++

5

Excellent mattress. I've had it for a month now. It gives great support. Especially for people with back problems, I would highly recommend it.

5

Hard ,hard hard so very hard this might be the hardest bed I've ever slept on you might need to get a topper just to take the edge off it but

5

This Seeley orthopedic mattress provides plenty of support and has already given me a much better sleep. A big improvement on what I had before.

5

Finally Ive found a firm mattress that doesnt sag after a couple of weeks! Does exactly what it claims to do and is very good value for money

5

This is my 2nd sealy orthopaedic mattress and they are very supportive and comfortable. Due to back issues this is the only mattress I will buy.

5

Looking for firm...you got it! Branded name you can trust...this is it. Built to support and last...don't waste time looking any further !
