Becky's Thoughts On The Sealy Rutherford Traditional Spring Mattress

Sealy has introduced the new Rutherford Traditional Spring Mattress to the masses in a joint venture to be sold exclusively through Dreams, but don't let the fact there's no price comparison to be had here, there's more than meets the eye when it comes to this mattress and there's a reason why it has amassed strong reviews in it's brief stint in the public eye.

Let's start with that support system. This mattress has a conventional open coil base, commonly known as traditional sprung. There is nothing wrong with this sort of base, which will provide you with enough support and even-tension across the mattress to give you a comfortable nights sleep.

Onto the top comfort layer, now this is a single sided mattress meaning the comfort layer is only on one side. Very common, not something to worry about. This layer features memory foam in a fair quantity that is going to give you that cloud-like sensation when you lay on it, allowing you to sink into the mattress and absorb some of that warmth and comfort while you sleep. 

With a medium firmness tension, this mattress is going to prove suitable for pretty much everyone and is the go to recommendation when it comes to suitability. If you are on the larger side or suffer from back/neck pain you may wish to consider something firmer, however, it's entirely subjective.

In all, you are getting a brand name product with memory foam and a suitable spring system in a firmness that suits most people, it's priced well and reviews for the mattress are currently very good. 


What Makes The Sealy Rutherford Traditional Spring Mattress Great?

Rotate Regularly - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

Your mattress should be rotated on a regular basis as this is the easiest way to prolong and increase the longevity of your mattress. The main benefits to regularly rotating your mattress is the continued support and comfort while reducing any risk of sagging that may otherwise occur

Comfort Grade - Medium

A Medium firmness mattress is the most common build offered due to the range of suitability offered in such a mattress. This type of mattress will be better suited toward averagely weighted people, while lighter people should opt for a medium-light, and heavier people considering a medium-firm.

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.

Memory Foam layer

Something for the memory foam lovers. Who doesn't love a bit of sinky-floaty and supportive material designed to rebound again and again. Definitely the optimal for comfort in any mattress


Ideal for anyone suffering from allergies. These products are made from materials that do their best to protect you

Sealy's PostureTech Core Support


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.

About Sealy

Sealy has divisions across the world with renowned manufacturing within the high-end bed and mattress segment for over 100 years. For the UK division of Sealy, the mattress factory is inset within the heart of Cumbria which makes an impressive 3500 mattresses per week.

Single sided - Rotate head to toe weekly for the first three months, then every month thereafter

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.

This mattress is not sold in stores and is instead an online-only model. That works quite well for us, since our core line-up or reviews and specification highlights are all based around online models.

Customer Reviews For The Sealy Rutherford Traditional Spring Mattress

Based on 31 review

Real comfy

Having purchased online, I hadn't tested the quality of the mattress,so my 1st night felt a bit strange as I had never slept on a mattress with a memory foam layer. By 2nd night I knew what to expect. I have never really been a good sleeper, but this product changed that. Every night is so so comfy. I used to wake up with sore joints and muscles but not anymore. Well worth the money


Sealy beds and mattresses always spot on!

We moved house a year ago and bought a new Sealy bed. Our old Sealy bed was relegated to guest bed. However the mattress was 8 years old so we decided to replace it with a Sealy mattress from Dreams. Again the mattress quality and comfort consistent. It is our 5 th Sealy bed/mattress. However the recycling offered and deliver process was excellent


A good all rounder

I bought this mattress after much discussion with my partner. I prefer a soft mattress she prefers something firmer preferably a memory foam mattress. This mattress suits us both and we have had some of the best nights sleep since replacing our existing mattress with this one. We would highly recommend.


New Sealy mattress

My new Sealy mattress is beautifully made, very comfortable, and has everything I was looking for in a new mattress. My Previous bed was also made from Sealy and lasted me twelve years. So thought it was time to replace as I suffer backache and decided on on firmer support. Delighted with my new purchase


Comfortable traditional spring mattress

I bought this mattress in an effort to get a good nights sleep in spite of a metal hip replacement and arthritis. This mattress has solved my problems. I supports me very well whilst being comfortable at the same time. Very happy with my purchase.


A great nights sleep

Comfiest mattress

Me and my partner bought this mattress 2 month ago and it is a delight to get in bed. No more sore back when the alarm clock ring, if anything you don’t want to get out of bed to go to work no more. We love it !!!!!!!!
