This is my favorite mattress ever. I hate spring mattresses now. If I ever get rid of my boyfriend that hated this mattress I will definitely buy one of these again. Actually, I wonder if we could get one of those kings that have the split twins and each get our own mattress? Hmm.....

Comfort
When you first sit on the bed, it feels very stiff, but after about 5 seconds once you sink into it, there is nothing that I have felt quite like it. I feel weightless, on my side, on my back or on my stomach. My favorite position is on my stomach with one side flipped out. This is a horrible position by the way, and always tugs on my hips. This is the only bed I have ever slept in that I felt absolutely no "tug" in. My boyfriend, hated it. He woke up sore every day from it, while I woke up feeling better than I ever had since I had kids.

Support
If you really like support in a mattress, this is one of the best. Your entire body and every crevice from head to toe is supported after the 5 second sink in time.

Firmness
I loved the firmness and I think I need that to feel fully supported. My boyfriend hates a firm mattress and that is why he hated this one. We ultimately had to return the mattress because he was just choosing to sleep on the couch. If you like soft mattresses this is not for you, but if you really like feeling supported, this is the best one I have ever felt.

Durability
I didn't get to keep this mattress long enough to attest to it's durability, however, the guarantee on it was phenomenal, and I think the manufacturer feels pretty secure in it's durability.

I bought it and after about 2 nights of sleep my back was aching. I tryed everything I could to get comfortable and stay asleep but nothing helped. I always heard good thing about sealy but I have nothing to say that would persuade you to buy this form of sealy mattress. Maybe it is just me or my posture or something not having to do with the mattress .... Who knows. The only way I did manage to get comfortable was on my side with pillows and even then it didn't help much at all.

Comfort
Not very comfortable at all and very disappointed. Was hoping for a softer type. Definitely was not as soft and cushiony as I thought it would be. Was expecting a lot better from a branch such as sealy.

Support
It's almost like it is too supported and too firm. Like I said I could not get comfortable to matter how hard i tried.

Firmness
Way too firm for me! Not comfortable at all and very disappointed.

Durability
Plenty of durability.

    Comments about Sealy Posturpedic Optimum Radiance Mattress:

    I bought the mattress for myself few months ago and it is one of the best mattress I have ever slept on. If you have any back problems, this mattress can do wonders for your back. The mattress gives great nights of sleep while waking up refreshed to take on my day.
    Comfort
    The mattress is nice and firm but comfortable. It is not quite soft sucking you into the bed. The best part is the mattress takes care of your back if you have any back problems.
    Durability
    It is only few months with the mattress now without any problems. I usually flip the mattress once a week to keep its like new feeling.
    Firmness
    The firmness of the mattress is of right amount. You will not feel the bed trying to suck and eat you alive, which proved to be a killer for people with back aches.

    Great mattress

    Comments about Sealy Posturpedic Optimum Radiance Mattress:

    We've had this mattress in our bedroom for a couple of years now--probably about two or three, and it is single-handedly the best mattress I have ever slept on.

    Comfort
    I think this mattress is one of the most comfortable mattresses I have ever slept on. As soon as I lay down, it forms to my body just enough to feel like I'm on a soft little cloud. I always sleep on my side, and this mattress works perfectly for that. It always feels so comfy.

    Firmness
    The mattress is nice and firm, which I completely love. It helps relieve any back pain you have, so that's a huge plus in my opinion. I also like how well it stays firm and how nicely it contours to my body during the night. I tend to be quite restless and move quite a bit before I fall asleep, but this mattress still holds firm and contours to my body perfectly.

    Durability
    I've had this mattress for a couple years now, and it's held up thus far. I flip the mattress every once in a while so that it lasts a bit longer, so it still feels like new.

    Firm and confortable matress

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Sealy Posturpedic Optimum Radiance Mattress:

    We bought this mattress in king size for our new apartment a few years ago.
    Pros: the mattress is firm, therefore my back got great support. I used to experience low back pain, especially during my last trimester carrying my daughter. This mattress stays firm and slightly contours my body regardless of my sleep position.
    Secondly, I noticed that it did help with my hot flash problem a little bit. The material does not make me sweat in the middle of the night. I feel very comfortable.
    Besides, my 19-month-old daughter loves to jump on it, everyday. It might not be long enough to judge its durability, but I have not seen any defect yet.
    Cons: the mattress is heavy. It was somehow difficult to transport and arrange the mattress into position. I guess this is the same thing for any other brand of king size mattresses .
    One night, my daughter' diaper leaked a bit, and the mattress got slightly stained. This is the only problem that I would complaint. I have no idea how to wash it.

    Comments about Sealy Posturpedic Optimum Radiance Mattress:

    I moved from my apartment in NYC and needed some new things for my new apartment. I went to Sleep's and feel head over heals for the Posturpedic Mattress. When I finally got the mattress home and was able to set it up, which was easy as pie. I could not wait to have a good night sleep. The mattress works wonders for my back, which I have had problems with when it came to mattresses in the past. I can sleep comfortable and it is an actual restful sleep.I wake up refreshed and ready to take on my day.

    Comfort
    if you have back pain, then this is the mattress for you. The mattress is not too soft that it sucks you into the bed. It is nice and firm but comfortable. Giving you the support needed for your back.

    Support
    Great for back support. Gives you a good night sleep and you can actually look forward to going to bed knowing that you are going to get some real rest.

    Firmness
    Just the right amount, you do not feel that the bed is trying to suck you in and eat you alive. Which can be killer for people who have back pain. Support is key.

    Durability
    It has been two years since I made this purchase and I do not have any complaints. The most I do is flip the mattress over every 6 months to keep the "like new" feeling,

    This mattress has been the best mattress I have ever owned. It is so comfortable. The mattress molds to my body, making it just perfect for me. No more tossing and turning on a hard mattress. I have a comfy place to rest my head. Even with a bad back, this mattress offers the support, so there is not pressure placed on the back.

    Best mattress I have ever owned

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Sealy Posturpedic Optimum Radiance Mattress:

    I usually toss and turn, However since I have purchased this mattress I find myself sleeping through the night. I find babies don't sleep very well, so i slept so much better than a baby. My husband and i sleep one each side of the bed, and we follow the rotation schedule of the mattress to the T. I like the pillow topper, and it is easy to find sheets for this mattress. I got a Queen size, and The size is fantastic. I would definitely buy this for a gift for my family or friends. I will always repurchase this mattress. The bed fits our animals and us. I suggest getting the corresponding bed cover to keep your mattress lasting for years. Rotate that as well.
    We just absolutely love the mattress is high up. It helps us get out of bed every morning, not making us stand up from the floor. The support it gives my back has definitely been a god send. I used to wake up with back pain ad no longer do.

    Firmness
    Smushy is just what we were aiming for.

    Durability
    My cat's claws haven't made a dent on the mattress cover, also from seally.

    A Mattress that Really Lives Up to its Promise

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Sealy Posturpedic Optimum Radiance Mattress:

    After going through 3 luxury brand innersping mattresses in 4 years, I was starting to think it was normal to change positions every hour or two to prevent waking up in the morning with back and shoulder pain. This mattress exceeded my expectations by miles. My husband and I compared several foam mattress brands, but we didn't like how the density of many of the other brands made it difficult to turn or move in the bed. After testing many of the floor models, we selected the Sealy because of its comfort level, extensive warranty, and it addressed the heat and density complaints that many of the other brands were getting. I couldn't believe how much of a difference this mattress made in the first night. I've had it for over a year, and it still sleeps like the first night - no tossing, turning or pain. Today, I count purchasing this mattress as one of the best decisions I've made.

    Best mattress on the market.

    Comments about Sealy Posturpedic Optimum Radiance Mattress:

    The finest mattress that I have ever owned. This puts all other mattresses to shame. It has just the right balance of firmness and comfort to ensure a great night of uninturrupted rest. The mattress will last for a lifetime and keep on giving supreme comfort. I love my Sealy!

    Comfort
    Amazing! You'll want to stay in bed all day, just to enjoy the comfort of your Sealy. There is not another mattress that compares. Its like sleeping on a cloud, no matter which way you prefer to sleep.

    Support
    Practically impossible to fall off this bed. You'll never feel any pockets where the mattress is worn. It is an amazingly comfortable product.

    Firmness
    Just the right balance of firmness and comfort to ensure a great night of sleep. Even if your close to the edge of the bed its not too firm.

    Durability
    Will last a lifetime. I have had my Sealy for five years and I still get eight hours of uninturrupted sleep each and every night.

    The mattress rates an easy ten for numerous reasons, but primarily for me because of its firmness.

    Comfort
    The comfort was the best, and for a guy who has used several mattresses over the year, I kid you not.

    Support
    It offered excellent support.

    Firmness
    I cannot say enough about the firmness of the mattress. This was the primary thing that sold me on the product.

    Durability
    I expect the mattress will retain its firmness and comfort for several years.
