Motion Isolation & Edge Support

Initial Odor & Sleeping Hot

Quite a number of people complain about the unpleasant initial odor in the period of using Sealy Optimum mattress. People who usually sleep hot might as well choose other mattresses because Sealy Optimum has a troublesome heat trap that will make sleepers uncomfortable.

Noise & Break-in Period

Similar to most mattresses, Sealy Optimum mattress seldom has noise when sleepers lie or move on it. The break-in period depends on different models, and like most foam mattresses, it may take a long time for people to get used to the mattress especially for firm models.

Maintain & Move
