What Makes The Sealy Posturepedic Backcare Extra Firm Mattress Great

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. Couldn??t sleep on it without as we both have arthritis in hips and knees. Pricey but at 60% off it was a bargain

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.

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

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

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.

Elegant damask cover

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.

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.

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

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

Exclusive to Mattress Online!

Exceptional level of extra firm, orthopaedic support

The firmest mattress that Sealy manufactures

Sealy's PostureTech Core Support springs provide remarkable support

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

Edge Guard for enhanced stability and durability

Single-sided for easy care: simply rotate

Tufted for improved support and longevity

Sealy Smart Fibres offer a fresher sleeping environment

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.

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.

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.

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.

Customer Reviews For The Sealy Posturepedic Backcare Extra Firm Mattress

Based on 849 review

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 like a firm mattress, due to a serious back injury in my teens. Im now 51 and suffer from constant back ache, although Im very fit, healthy and cycling is my life, covering 150 miles a week and weigh 73kgs at 511". 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 1000s 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! Its a very firm mattress, with no roll to the centre and I can actually feel my back realigning.

5

Excellent mattress - the firmest Ive tried in a long time. And the edges dont bow when you sit on it (Im a 58kg woman so dont 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 isnt 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. Its 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 cant sleep on my sides however.It is very solid though and so far hasnt 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.Im 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

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

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

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. Ive been sleeping on the mattress for about 2 weeks now and have noticed a definite improvement, espesially in the mornings.

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. Its nice and hard, had this mattress for 3 days and I havent 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 cant fault this one. Its a very firm bed and something I have to get the used to but no pain which is excellent.

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 I??d 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

Very solid, theres no sagging when you sit on the edge. If you want a very hard mattress, its this one. If you arent sure about buying one online, because youve not tried it, get this one anyway and if you find it too hard, put a topper on it. Ill never spend 3x the money in a mattress shop again.

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

Ive 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 its miles better. As an added benefit Im getting a better nights sleep too.Would highly recommend.

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 doesnt 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 sons single mattress we went with the same make/model. Very satisfied.

5

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

5

Ive 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. It??s very firm and gives great support. It did take a little getting used to as it??s firmer than our previous mattress, I??d say around 2 weeks or so. Thereafter it??s 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

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

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

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, hes 6ft and a generous size which this mattress is strong and comfortable

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

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

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

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

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. I??m 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

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

My favourite bit is that l dont 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 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

comfort and support aplenty; being pocket sprung, theres 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

Abslolute best nights 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

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 nights 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 didn??t help as my back would start to ache after a few hours. I don??t wake up with a back ache like the last soft mattress I had.

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 Ive 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

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

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 its firm but not too firm. Excellent product.

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

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

5

Very firm mattress, which wont be to everyones taste but is perfect for me. I used to wake up each morning with back ache, that has gone completely with this mattress.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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

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

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

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

cover of mattress not silky or shinny so therefor very cool to sleep on.Firm but still comfortable, and has good depth. all in all very pleased.

5

It was as as described! A very comfortable, extra firm mattress, that doesnt lose its shape, even though my partner is quite heavy. +++++++

5

Firm and supports back - no longer wake in the morning with back ache. Good if you sleep on your back but a bit hard when lying on your side.

5

Excellent supportive mattress. I have two knee replacements and find it difficult lowering myself into bed. The hight and firmness are superb

5

Husband had very bad back was desperate for new mattress to resolve the problem since buying has had no complaints on his back. Fab mattress

5

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