Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support by Serta

May 19, 2015



Digging even deeper than last week, we finally reach the heart of Serta’s iComfort® Sleep System: the Comfort Last® Foam Core. This core is paired with Serta’s Ultimate Edge® Support, enhancing the firmness of the edge while also tightly containing the inner foam. Here’s what Serta has to say:

  • This advanced foam support system is designed to help support your body throughout the night, promoting a more restful night’s sleep. Plus, Ultimate Edge® Support strengthens the mattress edges, reducing that annoying edge “roll-off” so you have more room to stretch. Available in every iComfort Sleep System.

The Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support is the densest part of the mattress, providing a solid and supportive foundation for the rest of the comfort layers to work off of. The Ultimate Edge® Support border is even denser, containing the inner foam and providing a more firm edge that resists bending and can support sitting. The Ultimate Edge® is important for couples who share a bed, as it increases the viable sleeping area from edge to edge, rather than just a sweet spot in the middle.



This combination of the Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support also greatly enhances the durability of the mattress. The dense core is resistant to sagging and indentation to help reduce the formation of a body impression, and the Ultimate Edge® border keeps that inner foam tight and compact, while retaining the frame of the mattress to prevent twisting, bending, or warping. This technology used in conjunction with Serta’s cooling, contouring, and reactive comfort layers, achieves some of the most popular and effective mattresses on the market. Serta’s iComfort line has become a household name, and it all starts with the Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support.


What Is Percale?

May 14, 2015

Malouf Queen 400 Thread Count Italian Sheet Set
The more you look into buying new linens and textiles for your home, the more variation you’ll discover in the industry. One of the more complex aspects is the number of fabric weaves that exist.

The type of weave determines much about the fabric, including things like sheen, weight, and use. Percale is a very popular weave that has a very common use.

Percale is a very soft, light fabric that is often used in making bed sheets. The weave is very plain, yet very tight, and it has a high thread count — usually a minimum of 200. It’s often made of long-staple cotton, which is combed to remove the short, imperfect fibers. This way you get stronger threads that have a smaller chance of pilling.

All of these factors make percale a very good choice for something as essential and basic as sheets. If you’re anticipating summer heat, you’ll love the cool breathability of percale bedding. Brands such as Peacock Alley and Matouk are very well-known for the superior quality of their percale. Check out US-Mattress today to find fresh, comfortable summer linens!

Pods™ Gel-Activated Support by Serta

May 12, 2015


This week we will take a look at one of Serta’s technologies that you will find buried deeper in their mattresses: Pods™ Gel-Activated Support. As usual, Serta says it best:

  • Strategically positioned macro-gel discs work with our Comfortlast® Foam Core support system to help provide extra push back support from the deepest part of the mattress and a firmer seating edge.

As you can see in the image below, the Pods™ Gel-Activated Support layer is most often found lower in the mattress. Unlike previous weeks technologies that are focused on cooling and providing initial comfort, Pods™ Gel-Activated Support is a clever technology used to bolster the support of your mattress near the core. The concept is similar to the reactive surfaces found in the higher layers of Serta mattresses, but instead of reacting with contouring, this design reacts with additional deep-down support.


Serta seems to have a layer of comfort material for every enemy of sleep. From heat, to contouring, to support, to edge support, Serta has a solution. Pods™ Gel-Activated Support aids in both of the latter, and in conjunction with the Comfort Last® Foam Core with Ultimate Edge® Support and a layer of Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam, each of these sleeping problems is addressed for an exceptional mattress.

There’s a reason Serta is #1.

To continue the series on sleeping technologies by Serta, this week we will cover EverFeel™ Technology. Unlike the previous three weeks’ technologies, cooling is not a primary concern of EverFeel™ memory foam. Instead, a thin layer of EverFeel™ material is usually used at the top of a mattress for the reasons Serta states below:

– The cradling comfort you expect from memory foam

– No need for time or temperature to adapt to your body

– A difference you will feel the moment you lie down

As you can see, unlike traditional memory foam, Serta’s EverFeel™ does not require the usual “break-in” period. This material is designed to react immediately, making it an exceptional surface layer for most mattresses. You will find a layer of Serta’s EverFeel™ material in several of their models, usually, but not always, as the very first layer. EverFeel™ memory foam provides immediate contouring for immediate comfort the moment you lie down. You won’t find yourself coaxing your mattress into providing you with proper comfort as with some other memory foams, and can expect a comfortable surface as soon as you lie down, every time.

Just another revolutionary advancement in memory foam technology brought to you by Serta.


EverCool™ Memory Foam by Serta

April 28, 2015


Serta revolutionized the already revolutionary technology of memory foam by pursuing solutions that combated its main drawback: heat retention. In the last two weeks we have covered Cool Action™ Gel and Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam, two successful evolutions in Serta’s crusade for a cool sleeping memory foam mattress. Today we will cover a separate branch of of Serta’s technology: EverCool™ Memory Foam. The EverCool™ technology takes a different approach than Cool Action™ Gel and Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam, making it a different branch that has evolved separately from the Cool Action™ line. The cousin of Cool Action™ Gel Memory Foam, EverCool™ Memory Foam, does not use gel infused foam and conductive gel beads to dissipate heat, but instead features a super-fine infusion of heat-conducting graphene.


The current EverCool™ Gfx Memory Foam combines premium, breathable memory foam with graphene to allow airflow and greatly enhanced heat dissipation. The conductive graphene, much like the Cool Action™ Gel beads, actually pulls heat away from the body and disperses it more evenly where it can be whisked away from a large surface area of the mattress rather than collected beneath and against your body. All of this while Serta’s premium memory foam provides supple body conforming comfort that gently contours to the body while reacting to provide proper and accurate support with enhanced cushioning. Serta’s graphene infused memory foam also greatly increases the lifespan of the mattress, by reducing concentrated heat and pressure wearing down the key areas you sleep on most. EverCool™ Gfx Memory Foam by Serta is just another breakthrough in the science of sleep brought to you by America’s #1 mattress company.

Sleep cool, sleep soundly, sleep Serta.


Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam by Serta

April 14, 2015


As the #1 mattress brand in America, you should expect revolutionary ideas and technologies to come from Serta. Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam is just one of many revolutionary technologies brought to you by Serta to help achieve a perfect night’s sleep. Combining memory foam and cooling gel technology, Serta has created something with the benefits of both, and virtually no drawbacks or compromises. I think Serta said it best, so below are informative blurbs from Serta itself from a digital catalog information kit about the ever popular iComfort line:

“Cool Action™ Dual Effects® Gel Memory Foam

Serta’s latest breakthrough in gel memory foam technology is the world’s first dual-action gel memory foam infused with both Serta’s original MicroSupport® gel and our latest MicroCool+® gel. Millions of gel beads gather under the areas of your body that need extra support while also helping the mattress dissipate heat away from the sleep surface.”

“Cool Action™ Dual Effects®

Millions of Serta’s original MicroSupport® gel beads gather under the areas of your body that need extra push back support. Meanwhile, our MicroCool+™ gel features advanced phase change material encapsulated in a proprietary gel designed to efficiently capture, store and ultimately dissipate away heat from the mattress layers above. This unique and exclusive design works to provide more support where your body needs it and gives the material an enhanced ability to transport heat away from the mattress layers above it.”

As you can see, this technology single-handedly solves two of the most prevalent issues when it comes to a good night’s sleep: support and sleeping temperature. Finding the right mattress that uses this technology, with the core and complementing comfort layers right for your Comfort Scale rating preferences and sleep style, and the bedding to go with it, is all that stands in the way of you getting a a great night’s sleep every night for years to come. Did you expect anything less from #1?


The New Jefferys Bay Mattress

April 9, 2015

Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid Liberty Point Luxury Firm Mattress

Every now and then, mattress companies make changes to their collections or even to specific mattresses. While it’s not always very noticeable, sometimes these changes can be confusing, especially if not every consumer is aware of the change.

One recent, subtle change from Simmons is the name change for the Jefferys Bay Luxury Firm Mattress. It’s not an earth-shattering change by any means, but it can be confusing to customers who receive a word-of-mouth recommendation for this specific model, and then can’t find it when they search for it. The Jefferys Bay has been renamed as the Liberty Point Luxury Firm Mattress.

Just as it did when it was still the Jefferys Bay, the Liberty Point contains three different kinds of comfort padding layers: AirCool Memory Foam, AirCool Memory Foam with Micro Gel Touch, and Dynamic Response Memory Foam. These all help relieve pressure so that you sleep more restfully. Its individually wrapped coil system gives it better contouring ability, and even allows you to use it on an adjustable base.

Plus, it has a Comfort Scale of 3, which makes it a firm mattress. So you get good pressure relief and a solid, supportive feel, which is an excellent combination for anyone who needs something that feels a little harder than your average plush mattress.

It may not seem like a big deal if you weren’t looking for the Jefferys Bay mattress, but even so, the knowledge could come in handy. You never know.

Sleep Well,

The Snooze Guru
