Sealy Posturepedic Mattress Review
Sealy Posturepedic is owned by industry veterans TempurPedic, and together they provide quality mattresses for every kind of sleeper — whether you’re short, tall, sleep on your back, your side…we think you get the point. This review will focus on the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Kelburn Mattress, a memory foam hybrid bed built with accommodating, comfortable attributes we think the general sleeper will find comfortable. Well, just as long as you like memory foam!
In this review, we’ll cover everything you need to know about the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid bed. Use our jump links below to find out what we think of feel, firmness, price, and more.
Posturepedic Mattress Construction & Design
Like the name states, Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Kelburn is a hybrid mattress made with coils and foam. These layers stack up to make a durable 12” mattress accommodating for all body types. Let’s break down its construction, though, layer by layer:
- Base layer – A foundation of zone support coils; in the center of the mattress, there are 20% more coils for support, and then the edges have more spread out coils
- Transition layer – The center layer of this mattress is a layer of softer foam to neutralize the firm feel of the coils
- Comfort layer – A layer of pressure relieving memory foam, which is what gives this bed it’s memory foam feel
All of Sealy’s beds are designed and built in the United States. Also, all of the foams used in the mattress are CertiPUR-US certified, which means (in essence) that the mattress is safe to sleep on and was not made with certain harsh chemicals or metals.
Sealy’s Special Mattress Cover
We really like the cover of this bed. It’s made with a “MoistureProtect” fabric that’s supposed to draw moisture away from the body in order for you to stay most comfortable. We can’t speak fully on that because we don’t have a method to measure moisture levels, but we can say we really like the grey and black design and how soft it is. We think the cover gives this mattress a top-tier, premium look.
This cover isn’t removable, so if you happen to spill anything or have any mistakes, just mix some mild soap with warm water and spot treat it.
Sealy Posturepedic Mattresses Firmness And Feel
This mattress from Posturepedic has a soft, airy memory foam feel. When you lay down on it, you’ll slowly sink into the material, but it doesn’t hug you too much, so it’s not overwhelming. Rather than contouring around you, it creates a gentle dip where your body lies.
The Hybrid Kelburn is about a medium on the soft-to-firm scale. As is typical of memory foam, it has slow responsiveness, but the coils help balance it out so that you don’t ever feel “stuck in the mud” the way you might with Zinus, for example.
Keep in mind that firmness is relative, though. The more you weigh, the more you’ll sink into a bed and the softer it will feel. On the reverse side, the lighter you are, the more you’ll lay on top of a mattress and the firmer it will feel. You should take this into account for your sleeper type, as well.
We’d say this mattress sleeps more temperature neutral. How hot or cold you sleep on this bed will probably have more to do with external factors, like what you keep your AC set to, what type of sheets you’re sleeping with, and your body weight.
What Does Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Feel Like?
Mattress Sleeper Types
This Sealy Posturepedic mattress has a neutral mattress firmness that we think accommodates most sleeper positions including back, side, stomach, and combination.
Back and Stomach Sleepers
We think the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Kelburn is a good option for back and stomach sleepers because it’s firm enough to keep the spine in neutral alignment by supporting the hips and shoulders. The only caveat to this is if you’re over 250 lbs. We don’t think this will be a great mattress for back/stomach sleeping—it will end up being a little too soft.
Side and combo sleepers
We also think the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Kelburn is pressure relieving enough for side sleepers. The memory foam in this bed does a good job of accommodating curves instead of fighting against them.
Body Types Discussion
Keep in mind, your weight could change your perception of the mattress firmness. As you could imagine, a mattress will feel different to a petite woman who weighs 100 lbs, versus a 6’3 athlete who weighs 230 lbs.
Petite To Average Individuals
Smaller or lightweight individuals may find the mattress is too firm for their taste if they sleep on their side. Those who sleep predominately on their back, stomach, or a combination of all positions, though, might find it to be accommodating.
If you have more of a moderate build, we think this mattress will provide a nice balance between support and pressure relief.
Because this is a thick, hybrid mattress, we think it will be a great option for heavier people. The coils in this bed are supportive and durable enough to carry more weight than your typical all-foam mattress. You might want to stick to sleeping on your side though, as you might not get enough support if you lay on your back or stomach.
Is Sealy Posturepedic Mattress Good For Couples?
If you’re looking for a mattress for couples, you might like Sealy PosturePedic Hybrid Kelburn for a couple of reasons. This includes it’s ample edge support and motion isolation.
The motion isolating capabilities of this bed are quite good, as is the case with most memory foam beds. This is particularly helpful to light sleepers who don’t want to wake up along with their partner.

Sealy Posturepedic Price And Coupon Code
The Sealy hybrid is definitely not a cheap mattress, but it’s not expensive either. It’s in between, and all things considered, we think it’s a nice value.

Does Posturepedic Offer Discounts?
The one thing with Sealy Posturepedic products is that coupons are scarce, since the mattresses themselves are sold through retailers, but the pricing is often times controlled by Sealy. Retailers will offer promotions—such as a free Visa gift card or gadget—but you almost never will find a proper coupon code. You can check US-Mattress.com to see current deals and offers.
Sealy PosturePedic Kelburn Hybrid Review Verdict
The Hybrid Kelburn Mattress from Posturepedic is a really nice bed with a comfortable memory foam feel. It’s accommodating of any sleeper type and any body type thanks to its middle-of-the-road firmness level, and hybrid construction. We also like that it doesn’t heat up like other memory foam beds do, and that it has a nice premium look. Overall, if you’re in the market for a memory foam mattress, we think it’s hard to go wrong with this one unless you’re a heavy back and stomach sleeper looking for a more firm mattress.

Posturepedic vs. Competitors
Comparing Posturepedic vs. TempurPedic
Both PosturePedic and TempurPedic offer a comfortable memory foam/coil hybrid mattress. With that said, PosturePedic is more affordable than TempurPedic. TempurPedic also makes models specifically designed to help regulate body temperature and help you sleep cooler, making it a better choice for hot sleepers.
Comparing Posturepedic vs. Nectar
One major reason why Nectar mattresses are different from PosturePedic’s Kelburn hybrid is because of its construction. The Nectar Mattress is made with all-foam and no coils, therefore, is more suitable for petite and medium body types. PosturePedic, on the other hand, is made with a supportive coil base and is more accommodating for heavy body types. Also, Nectar provides a full-year trial period and a lifetime warranty, beating PosturePedic’s 10-year warranty and 120-night trial.
US-Mattress sent it to us because they thought we’d like to try it. We are in no way obligated to them to write anything good or bad about this mattress, or any mattress they send us. All opinions are purely that of the Slumber Yard team.
Great question! When you go to purchase this bed through US-Mattress, you have the option to tack on a box spring, which comes in multiple models (even an adjustable base and some split ones), or a premium bed frame. So you have the possibility of getting a whole new bed set up showing up to your house all in one delivery. Pretty convenient, huh?
