Delivery Method

Sealy mattresses are available in select stores or online, but not directly from Sealy. They are usually delivered by a retailer’s in-home delivery service. In-home delivery is typically offered for free, along with the removal of an old existing mattress.

More about the Sealy Posturepedic Brand

Sealy is one of the oldest and largest mattress companies in America. The Posturepedic mattresses and blue butterfly logo are what Sealy is known for. A few years ago, Tempur-Pedic purchased Sealy, along with its sister brand, Stearns & Foster. The company is now Tempur-Sealy and is the largest mattress company in the world.

Sealy continues to make a wide range of mattresses. Entry-level mattresses cost a few hundred dollars, and they go all the way up to mattresses priced at a couple thousand. There are tens of millions of Sealy mattresses in use today. They've maintained their status as some of the most popular beds in America.

Conclusion

Sealy makes mattresses of many different constructions and prices. They are a reputable brand overall. But with so many styles and models, we can't say each mattress is something we'd recommend without looking closer. We test each mattress they make and have highlighted some of the best-rated models above. There are also many others that rate well and have lots of positive consumer reviews.

It’s important to see how an individual model would fit your needs and preferences. Your body size, sleeping position, and comfort preference, all factor into it. You can also consider whether you want to go with premium features and materials. We gather all this information for each mattress, so you can make a smart choice. Sealy is a safe, dependable choice if you find a Sealy mattress that suits you.
