I am giving this Mattress an overall rating of 9 because I feel like it is an EXTREMELY comfortable mattress but over time I found that it looses some of its comfort. I guess you could say you get used to it so to speak and I find myself switching sides every 5 or 6 months to keep the comfort level to a maximum.

Comfort
I can remember when I first got my Sealy Memory Foam Mattress and The men came up and put it in my room and set it up. I sat at the end of if and laid back with my legs still hanging off and fell asleep like this for 4 hours. That is how comfortable this Mattress really is.

Support
The support for this mattress is unsurpassed. I had some very MINOR back pain before I bought this mattress because I had been sleeping on the hard floor for 3 years and I will tell you that after only 1 week of having my Sealy all the pain was gone and it supports my back better than any mattress I have ever had. That statement may not hold true to everyone (I am not a doctor or anything) but it definitely works for me!

Firmness
The reason I am giving this a 9 for firmness is because the mattress starts off (at least for me it did) right at the perfect level of firmness for my body. Now I know everyone likes a little different level of firmness but I found as time went on the firmness that I enjoy went away and it got softer and softer (Almost like I was sinking into the mattress) so that is why I now have to switch sides every 5 or 6 months to give the other side a break. I know it sounds weird but it works for me. But still this Mattress OUTPERFORMS ANY OTHER I HAVE EVER HAD!

Durability
I have moved 3 times since having this mattress (and keep in mind I have the king size version) and it has stayed in just as good a shape as it was the day I bought it. Going up and down flights of stairs, being hauled in trucks, and still is just as good as the day I bought it.

This mattress has been very uncomfortable from the beginning. It is not a mattress I picked but my husband did. I sleep on the couch most nights because I'm so uncomfortable. I hate waking with numb arms and back pain. I even get headaches now in the morning.

Comfort
The mattress is way too soft. After years of use the springs make it feel bumpy. I feel as if the mattress gets softer as well through each use. I just can never find a comfortable spot.

Support
I wake up with back pain and my hands are always numb if I sleep on this mattress.

Firmness
This mattress is not firm at all. I like a firm mattress and my husband likes soft, that's probably why he picked this mattress.

Durability
This mattress has survived many moves and still seems to work for my husband. He sleeps like a baby. However, the mattress has not survived my dog who has torn holes in it and might also explain it's bumpiness. My husband patched it up with ducktape.

Love this comfortable Bed

By 

from USA

Comments about Sealy Gel Memory Foam Mattress:

This mattress set is so very comfortable. We bought it to replace out select comfort set and it was the best decision. We sleep so much better! I have back issues and my DH has sleep apnea and we are both sleeping much better on this set. We thought the memory foam would be "hot" but the gel is cooling so we don't wake all sweatty :)

Comfort
love this bed! I cannot remember sleeping on a bed that is more comfortable.

Support
This bed has some support. I sufffer from back problems (herniated discs) and the mattress has enough support to allow to to awake fully rested and without much if any pain most mornings.

Firmness
this mattress is somewhat firm but has a decent amount of give to it :)

Durability
so far, so good! We feel like this mattress set has been durable enough for us! We havent been jumping on the bed nor do we have kids (other than 2 little 4-legged frriends) but it seems like it has been made to last and stand the test of time.

I look forward to getting in bed because of this mattress

Comments about Sealy Gel Memory Foam Mattress:

Overall, I'm glad I purchased this mattress and find it more comfortable than the box-spring kind. I am a person who enjoys sleeping and a good bed, so this mattress is a good fit for me.

Comfort
I sought this type of mattress out after having a good experience with another gel memory foam mattress. I wanted to find an excellent mattress because, when you think about it, we spend a good 1/3 of our lives asleep (ideally, theoretically...). Sleep, to me, is one of the most simple and cheap pleasures in life, and I wanted to pamper myself with a really nice bed.

The only negative I've personally experienced (and it seems to occur with all non-spring beds) is that if I am lying on my stomach, propped up by my elbows to read a book or work on my laptop, the mattress puts pressure on the nerves running past my elbow so that my whole arm will go numb and start tingling. This happens fairly frequently, which I hear is not good for my arms. Other than that, if I use the bed normally for sleeping, it is incredibly comfortable and just lovely to get into bed at night.

Support
As mentioned above, I have a different gel memory foam bed in my other home that I compare this mattress against, and that one seemed to give better support. I tend to feel more like I am sinking in this mattress, rather than feeling like I am resting comfortably on top. It is still a comfortable mattress; I just prefer my other one.

Firmness
It certainly holds its shape while molding to the weight of whatever's on it, but I would not think of this mattress as extremely firm.

Durability
Mine is only a few months old, but the construction and materials seem to be of high quality. The outer covering is soft, almost silky. I think the mattress is also flippable, so this is something to do to extend the life of the mattress.

Comments about Sealy Gel Memory Foam Mattress:

I have used this mattress for more then three years now and I love the fact that it still feels like it did when we first got it. Its really comfortable and soft to sleep on. I hate mattresses that are great at first but a couple of months later it just goes wrong. But not this one, It is still in good quality after three years!

A Fantastic night's sleep!

Comments about Sealy Gel Memory Foam Mattress:

As I have grown older, my body contours are not as simple as they used to be. So, sleeping on a regular mattress lying on my back causes my arms to go to sleep. Enter the Posture-pedic with Memory foam. It cradles my body completely so that, even though I am bumpier than I used to be, it is as if I am lying flat. That makes me very happy and allows me to sleep the way I used to be able to do. Now I can sleep on my back as well as on my side.

Comfort
As far as body support, this mattress is great. It is a bit hot in the summer, so I use less covers, but not aching or having a part of my body falling asleep far outweighs that consideration. The gel mitigates the heat problem, but does not eliminate it.

Support
This mattress has the right amount of support so that I can sleep in comfort.

Firmness
I did not want a firm bed when I purchased this. My firm bed didn't work with my body type, old and rounder than when a younger person. Having the bed being less firm is a blessing.

Durability
The bed has held up well since I first bought it. I expect it to continue to do so.

Amazing bed for those with chronic pain!

By 

from USA

Comments about Sealy Gel Memory Foam Mattress:

I suffer from chronic back and hip pain. Prior to this mattress, most nights I would toss and turn, then wake up miserable! Since getting this mattress I sleep SO good and pain has been reduced considerably! The mattress conforms to your body and is soft yet firm and provides great support. I would recommend this mattress to anyone with pain issues! Happy sleeping!

Firmness
Soft yet firm

Durability
Have only had for approximately 4 months but no decline thus far.

This Is Simply The Best Mattress Available.

By 

from USA

Comments about Sealy Gel Memory Foam Mattress:

This mattress is truly a dream come true! I suffer from back spasms from time to time, and this mattress is quite soothing to my back. Oftentimes, I am able to drift off into a peaceful and restful sleep seemingly only a few minutes after I retire for the evening. My husband loves this mattress, and he professes that it is the best he has ever owned. He sometimes has leg cramps, and this mattress is the best product available for alleviating his leg cramps. Trust me, we have tried other mattresses, but this stands out in the crowd of mattress types available.

Comfort
Ahhh, this is the best when it comes to comfort. Although not an advertised bonus, this mattress seems to conform to our different body types (mine and my husband's, that is) when we are both sleeping. If comfort ranks high on your list of non negotiables, then this is truly one mattress to consider.

Support
The mattress offers superb back support. In addition, it offers support for tired legs as well. My husband declares that this mattress has increased his ability to exercise at the gym longer.

Firmness
Yes! This mattress offers a firmness which is unsurpassed. You will love the feel of the mattress.

Durability
I have had my mattress set for a few years now, and I believe we will be able to keep it for another few years. It is quite simply the best.

Wierd at first, then really good

Comments about Sealy Gel Memory Foam Mattress:

This product is very comfortable and makes for a fantastic night of sleep. However, the gel makes it feel really weird at first.

Comfort
After the first few nights getting used to the gel, it is fantastic. I always drift right into sleep, sleep really deep, and stay asleep until my alarm clock wakes me up.

Support
This mattress provides excellent support and really rejuvenates you. you will wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go. I know I sound like a commercial, but I am being dead serious.

Firmness
Because of the gel (and much like any other mattress) this bed loses its firmness after sleeping on it for a while. I feel like the gel looses firmness more quickly than a regular bed, but it still stays very comfortable.

Durability
This bed is extremely durable. My little girl will jump on this bed for ours, and not only has it stayed firm, but it has not ripped or torn once. That usually happens to other beds, but not this one. I love it.
