1. Tempur-Pedic Mattress

In the late 1980s the Tempur-Pedic mattresses began to appear in television commercials, and soon they seemed to just take off. Their innovative use of a special pressure-relieving foam is the reason for the incredible popularity of their mattresses. Today the company makes roughly a dozen different styles of this mattress available. They offer varying thicknesses and firmness, but all deliver the incredible relief that has made them so famous. In fact the founder of the company was honored by NASA for his work in improving living conditions for all mankind when he created this mattress line.

All three of the Tempur collections work on the same basic principle - high density foam that conforms to the shape of your body. The theory is that this provides equal support all along your body.

Some of the cons of the Tempur-Pedic mattress are: 

  • Cost - they are more expensive.
  • Temperature - some people say the foam retains too much heat - acting as insulation.
  •  They are much heavier then regular mattresses.
However, the pros may out way the cons.
  • No pressure points.
  • Those with back problems claim to get relief
  • The 90 day try before you buy 
  • 20 year warranty 

2. Sealy Mattress 

The Sealy mattress company has been in business for more than one hundred years. They have perfected the science of bedding and can supply almost any consumer with the perfect match to their bedding needs. They have four separate lines of mattresses – the Sealy Posturepedic, True Form, SpringFree and PurEmbrace.

Sealy has a wide range of products from a mattress designed for a guest room - and a budget (VertiCoil Promotional Series)- to their own memory Sealy TrueFoam mattress that competes against the Tempupedic mattress.

3. Serta Mattress

Serta is definitely one of the most trusted and recognized names in bedding. They were the first to offer a pillow top mattress – all the way back in the 70s, and throughout their history they have experimented and explored many approaches to manufacturing the best mattresses possible. Today their line of mattresses includes the Perfect Sleeper, Luxury Response, Perfect Day and Vera Wang lines. Each provides unique features and materials. For example the Luxury Response line offers an alternative sleep collection which employs latex and memory foam in the construction of the mattress and box spring. The Perfect Day line on the other hand is considered the “top of the line” and is crafted to provide one of the best nights of sleep imaginable.

Serta has 2 main lines of Mattresses. The Vera Wang Collection and the Serta Perfect Sleeper.


The Vera Wang Collection combines the fashion sense of Vera Wang with Serta technology. The Vera Wang Collection of Mattesses features unique fabrics that give them a haute couture feel.

The Serta Perfect Sleeper has been the best selling line for Serta for over 75 years. It is the Consumer's Digest Best Buy in Mattresses.
