Pressure Test Results

We’ve pressure tested the Upbeat Firm mattress with petite, average and large people in side and back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test)

The Upbeat mattress tested well for most body sizes and sleeping positions. It had contouring support and minimized pressure points. Pressure points cause discomfort during sleep, so you move around, which interrupts and lessens the quality of your sleep.

We observed mixed results with side sleepers. There is some red (extra pressure) which you can see, and there was too much when we tested a larger body size. The mattress is very firm, so it will be expected to have greater pressure concentrated over a smaller area. But the large body put too much pressure on the bed, in this particular case.

The results for back sleepers were better. The mattress offered proper support, especially for the large body size. One particular area we pay attention to and measure is the support under the lower back – and the Upbeat provided proper support in this important area.

Warranty

The Sealy Conform Essentials Upbeat mattress comes with a 10-year warranty against factory defects.

Conclusion

The Sealy Conform Upbeat Firm mattress is a very affordable, firm feeling mattress in the Essentials Collection. It’s very firm so only consider this mattress if you enjoy a very firm mattress. If you're looking for something firm, but think this may be too hard, check out the Sealy Conform Essentials Treat Firm for a bed with a little more give.

Aside from the firmness, the mattress is a very good value from Sealy. It’s the lowest-priced mattress in the Conform Line of mattresses. But while it does not have premium features like extra cooling technology or extra center support, it is well made with serious materials. The Sealy ComfortSense Foam and the SealySupport Gel Base Foam are the same materials found in the more expensive Conform models.

The Upbeat tested well in our Pressure Tests in most sleep situations (we do not recommend it for large, side sleepers).

If you are looking for an affordable, firm, memory foam mattress you should consider this bed. It comes at a great price, and it’s a quality-made mattress from a well-known company.
