Here's our look at Sealy's new Posturepedic Plus collection.

Note: This is not a review. This is our plain-English explanation and overview of the Sealy Posturepedic Plus collection of innerspring mattresses. Also see our overview of the Sealy Conform Mattresses (the company's all-foam beds), and the Sealy Hybrid collection, which combine aspects of both. We also cover the less expensive Sealy Posturepedic Response mattresses. These are all traditionally sold beds from stores and retailers. Sealy also has a "bed in a box" called the Cocoon by Sealy, which we have reviewed.

Sealy Posturepedic Plus Mattresses: Shared Features

The Plus collection is new for 2020. They replace and represent an expansion of the previous Posturepedic Response Premium collection (the lower-end models in the Response collection--the Essential and Performance series--remain available).

There are 10 mattresses in the Plus collection, which are further divided into three series. The exact names at the store are going to vary depending on the retailer, so we're using the names you are most likely to see: the Opportune, Satisfied, and Exuberant series.

As you might expect, features and cost go up as you progress through the collection, but they do have a number of common features.

Pocketed Coils

All of the Sealy Posturepedic Plus mattresses feature pocketed steel springs as the main support, and the type of springs varies depending on the mattress. These mattresses have a traditional feel, with plenty of bounce.

In the less expensive Opportune mattresses, Sealy uses the same coil unit in the outgoing Response Premium line, their 911 Pro coil unit (with 911 coils in the queen size). For the Satisfied and Exuberant series beds, it's an upgraded 1017-coil (queen) Response Pro HD unit, featuring stronger coils with an additional turn, suggesting better durability.

Edge Support

All of the Posturepedic Plus mattresses have stronger coils around the edge of the mattress, as opposed to some kind of foam edge support. Edge-to-edge coils like these improve air flow, which is a factor in a bed's ability to allow warm air to escape and cool air to replace it.

Adjustable Base Compatibility

All of the Posturepedic Plus mattresses are compatible with adjustable bases.

Mattress Covers

And finally, all 10 models in the Plus collection feature cooling high-density fibers in the covers. These are special fibers woven into the the cover that can give it a subtle cool-to-the-touch property.

All of the cover have a small amount of memory foam quilted into the cover, and all have functional handles on the sides to help you move and rotate the bed.

Sealy Posturepedic Plus Opportune

There are two models in the least expensive series, which you'll see sold as the Opportune (though names will vary depending on the retailer). Both are tight-top models (which means they have a traditional look and feel, with no pillow top).

In addition to the features common to all of the Plus mattresses, these two feature an additional thin sheet of gel memory foam in the central third of the mattress as a little additional support under the heaviest part of your body (the hips).

Both measure about 13" tall and vary in terms of feel, with a choice of Medium and Plush.

Sealy Posturepedic Plus Mattress Height Queen-size
Opportune Medium 13" $999
Opportune Plush 13" $999

Sealy Posturepedic Plus Satisfied

The next models up in the Plus collection are the "Satisfied" mattresses. Again, names may vary depending on the retailer. But these are the middle models in the series, and even if the name is different, you should recognize them by comparing features.

These models add a 3/4" sheet of memory foam across the whole bed, not just the middle third, but it's important to note there's still not enough memory foam in these beds to give them that 'melting' feeling of memory foam. Rather, it's there for pressure relief and cushioning.

Compared to the Opportune models, the Satisfied mattresses more comfort materials -- that is, more foam -- and along with that comes more cushioning depth and conformance; you sink in more, and the mattresses hug your curves more closely compared to the two Opportune models.

Three of the Satisfied models are traditional-looking mattresses, and two are pillow-tops measuring 14" tall.

Sealy Posturepedic Plus Mattress Height Queen-size
Satisfied Extra Firm 13" $1,099
Satisfied Medium 13" $1,099
Satisfied Soft 13" $1,099
Satisfied Pillow Top Medium 14" $1,199
Satisfied Pillow Top Soft 14" $1,199

Sealy Posturepedic Plus Exuberant

The top end of the Plus collection include the three Exuberant mattresses. While the Satisfied and Opportune models contain only a small amount of memory (an inch or less), the Exuberant models have between 2" and 3" of it, depending on the model. The Ultra Soft model is the softest of all the Posturepedic Plus models, and it has the most cushioning and memory feel too (it's pictured below).

In our look at these mattresses, we noted they offer an interesting blend of attributes: The quilted mattress cover/top is reminiscent of a traditional mattress, while the memory foam gives them a more modern 'sink into the bed' feel.

Sealy Posturepedic Plus Mattress Height Queen-size
Exuberant Firm 14"" $1,399
Exuberant Soft 14" $1,399
Exuberant Ultra Soft 15" $1,499


Other Factors

Delivery and Returns

  • Varies by store

Sealy mattresses are sold in mattress stores and department stores. You cannot buy them online directly through the Sealy website, but you may can find them from other online stores.

Delivery and returns policies will vary widely depending on where you buy your mattress.

Warranty

  • Varies by model

Warranty information for each mattress is included on the mattress "Law Label" at the store, and vary depending on the model. Be sure to talk to your salesperson about warranty terms, and particularly about the body impression warranty, which will tell you how much of a permanent depression may form to be covered under warranty. For these Sealy innerspring mattresses, it's 1.5".

To obtain warranty service, you will be responsible for shipping the mattress back to the company or retailer, and some warranties are pro-rated, meaning you may only be entitled to partial credit, dependent on years of ownership. See: Sealy warranty info
