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

Does PosturePedic Offer Discounts?
The one thing with Sealy 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.
Posturepedic Mattress Construction & Design
Much like the name states, this is a hybrid mattress made with coils and foam. These layers stack up to make a 12” mattress. 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 don’t know about all that, but we really like the grey and black design and how soft it is. The cover really gives this mattress a 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 has a soft, airy memory foam feel. When you lay down on it, you’ll slowly sink into the material, but it doesn’t surround you too much, so it’s not overwhelming. Rather than contouring around you, it creates a gentle dip where your body lies.
Sealy PosturePedic Hybrid Kelburn Firmness Scale
The Hybrid Kelburn is about a flat 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 would 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 sleeper type, as well.
PosturePedic Kelburn Hybrid Mattress Sleeper Types
The PosturePedic Kelburn will have a different feel, depending on your sleeping style.
Back and Stomach Sleepers
We think the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid Kelburn II 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 that if you’re over 250 lb, 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 II 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.
Posturepedic Mattress Body Types Discussion
Sleeping styles aren’t the only thing that affect comfort levels. Your weight could change your perception of the mattress firmness.
Smaller or lightweight individuals may find the mattress is too firm for their taste. The PosturePedic is better for the average or heavier-weight sleeper, unless a petite person likes a firm mattress.
The Kelburn is ideal for sleepers of average weight. The mattress is just right, providing enough pressure relief and support for someone under 250 pounds.
Because this is a thick, hybrid mattress, we think it will be good 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.
Will The Sealy Posturepedic Bed Sleep Hot?
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.
Will Couples Like This Bed?
We think this is the best Sealy mattress for couples for a couple of reasons.
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 Kelburn Hybrid Review Verdict
This is a really nice bed with a comfortable memory foam feel. It’s accommodating of any sleeper type and any body type. We 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.

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 more cool, 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?
