My husband and I are looking to buy our first brand new mattress. We plan to get a king size, but other than that I don't have any clue. I like a softer mattress and he does as well. I tried out a sealy, I believe it was a "SpringFree", the model was "Tranquil Sea" and we both really liked it a lot. I'm trying to do some research now, reviews, price comparison, but the model name is not universal. How could I best research this mattress. What can you tell me about it. I'm concerned mostly about longevity. I just want the most bang for my buck. Are these Sealy SpringFree mattresses all they're cracked up to be? Thanks in advance hope you can offer some guidance.
Hi Stacey. Here, the Tranquil Sea is a Comfort Series Sealy latex hybrid. It's a 13" plush tight top and consists of only 1.57" of latex with a 6" poly foam core and sells for about $1500 as a king set....not my idea of a good value. There is a plush in the Sealy SpringFree line called the Beachside. It's 11.5'' thick and nearly 9" of it is latex. At $1999 in king, it is the best bang for the buck. The "beachside" name may be hard to find, but there are only 6 models in the line and only one is a "plush tight top"
Sealy owns Stearns & Foster and Bassett. All 6 models in that line are available with all 3 labels.
Latex has been proven to be the best you can buy since the 1920's...all it's cracked up to be. There are many different brands of latex beds, like that hybrid, which give you the impression that you're getting a latex mattress. So, you need to look at the specs. If the store isn't willing to share that info, keep shopping. There are more legit retailers than not. They don't advertise as much, so you need to find them. The links below will help you do that.
