Difference between Sealy PosturePedic and Tempur-Pedic mattress

Many brands sell high-quality mattresses today in the market. If you have ever shopped for mattresses, you would have come across the two most recognizable, well-known, and trusted brands: Sealy PosturePedic and Tempur-Pedic. 

Some of you might not know that both brands fall under the same manufacturer, Tempur-Sealy International, Inc. Both mattresses are high in quality but differ in make and construction. 

Let's look at the difference between a PosturePedic and a Tempur-Pedic mattress and their various health benefits on a person's lifestyle. 

Sealy PosturePedic 

As the name suggests, a Sealy PosturePedic mattress is intended to improve the posture of a person while sleeping. This mattress is made from foam and pocket coil springs to support the spine during sleep. There are also other hybrid options with coil springs and gel-infused foams available. 

Backed by 130 years of rich experience in providing sound sleep, Sealy is known to be an affordable option for discerning sleepers. 

The primary aim of PosturePedic is to provide targeted support to a person while sleeping. Many PosturePedic mattresses are concentrated in the center to offer optimum support to the hips, lower back, and waist. The spine is well-aligned and supported in almost all sleep positions on a PosturePedic. 

When should you consider a Sealy PosturePedic? 

If you want a mattress made of high-quality materials, there is no better mattress than a Sealy PosturePedic. These mattresses don't sag or sink and will last you a long time. 

Irrespective of what sleeper you are, you will find a mattress for your body under Sealy. If you are a back or side sleeper, Sealy PosturePedic may be the right choice for you. 

In comparison to a Tempur-Pedic, a Sealy PosturePedic is way more affordable.
