Finding a great deal on a mattress is one of the most frustrating things shoppers are up against. With the Sealy Posturepedic Ivy Glenn mattress, there is definitely a great deal to be had. Currently, one of the top mattress stores is selling this queen-size mattress for just under $400 for the full mattress set. There are several attractive features outside of the price that make it a worthwhile investment.
The Sealy Posturepedic Name
Without question, Sealy Mattresses did a great job with its Posturepedic line. Recognized as one of the leading mattress models sold in North America, Sealy Posturepedic is known for its quality, comfort and support characteristics. And in early 2011, it further improved the brand with materials and engineering enhancements. So while it may not make sense to “buy for the name” in other industries and segments, when it comes to the Sealy Posturepedic, the name adds considerable benefits to the owner – in this case, quality, comfort and support as well as the recent product enhancements.
The Sealy Posturepedic Ivy Glenn Features List
Price and brand name aside, the Sealy Posturepedic Ivy Glenn mattress does bring its share of features to the table. Probably one of the most impressive is the coil count. At 736, the coil count on the Ivy Glenn mattress highlights the comfort and support characteristics that a shopper can expect from this value-priced mattress. Many in this price range will offer 500 or less coils, which is not to say these other mattresses are not good, but the more coils, the better the mattress can address comfort and support issues.
What impresses us even more is the Posturepedic coil system, which is titanium instead of regular steel. This material has proven its durability and longevity for Sealy and is one reason so many buyers are satisfied with the product after months and even years of sleeping on it. Sealy also happens to stand behind its choice of using titanium over steel-gauge coils, claiming it performs better than steel. It is also the material of choice for the new Stearns & Foster mattress models (Sealy owns Stearns & Foster), one of the most-respected luxury mattress brands on the market.
As well, the Posturepedic Ivy Glenn mattress comes with 2″ of foam comfort layers. While neither of these layers is memory foam or latex, the abundance of foam from Sealy adds comfort to the mattress. One inch is what Sealy calls “SuperSoft” foam while the other inch is regular foam. This is in addition to the half-inch of foam used in the mattress cover material.
A last feature worth mentioning is this Sealy’s thin profile. At 9.75″, this is a slim mattress to say the least. It makes for a convenient and comfortable solution for areas that require a low-profile sleeping solution or for students who might move frequently. Despite the low profile, there is definitely a lot of strength inside with a solid mattress core.
Who Should Buy The Sealy Posturepedic Ivy Glenn Mattress
Given its Sale price of under $400, the Sealy Posturepedic Ivy Glenn mattress has “value” written all over it. It makes sense for a budget-conscious shopper who also demands the highest levels of comfort and support from their mattress. As a primary mattress, the Ivy Glenn can hold its end of the bargain; backed by Sealy’s regular 10-year warranty, this is not a product that Sealy has “cheaped out” on in an effort to move inventory. This mattress is best suited to side sleepers who do not share their mattress with a partner. Back sleepers will also be satisfied with the comfort and support of this product, while stomach sleepers might be least satisfied, though still comfortable.
