Sealy Posturepedic Mattresses are designed by orthopedic surgeons. Their trademark characteristic is their interlocking coil system which provides added stability and durability. Compared to Simmons, the other leading brand, Sealy beds usually feel slightly firmer and are best for couples who are light sleepers. Couples who get in and out of bed frequently throughout the night may be better served by the independent coil system of the Simmons which isolates movement.
Sealy has been around for more than 125 years, originating in Sealy, Texas. The founder, Daniel Haynes, sold his patented mattress technology to a Texas company who started officially marketing the mattresses as Sealy in 1906. The company grew through the roaring twenties and barely survived the great depression, finally creating their famous Sealy Posturepedic mattress in 1950. This was the first mattress that was designed to provide solid back support. Sealy mattresses have continued to incorporate high-tech coils, first with programmed coils for increased support and later with their PostureTech Coil. Most recently Sealy launched their own memory foam product, TrueForm, as well as the SpringFree mattress which has a latex core.
