The Active Mattress available at the Original Mattress Factory immediately feels cheap and unstable but this is to be expected based on the price.
The Aloe 2 Mattress available at the Original Mattress Factory has a nice spring to it and offers good support. For the price it actually feels quite stable.
The Aloe 1 Mattress available at the Original Mattress Factory feels cheap and flimsy as you would expect for the price. It is bouncy and spinal support is reasonable.
The Hallet Firm available at Amart Furniture feels bouncy and flimsy, not surprising for a Sealy mattress. Edge support is quite good and overall spinal support is decent.
The Sleepheaven Mattress available at Fantastic Furniture falls into the ‘mattress in a box’ category. It can be purchased in store or online.
Sealy Posturepedic Performance Venture Firm has that typical unsteady, flimsy top layer. It does have good spinal support but for the price you can get better.
The Sealy Posturepedic Performance Enterprise Medium has a bouncy, flimsy top which gives a lot of partner disturbance. It feels OK to lie on but overall a bit disappointing from our end.
The Sealy Posturepedic High Performance Vibrance Medium is comfortable and supportive but still has a sense of unsteadiness on the top layer.
The Sealy Posturepedic High Performance Fortitude Firm feels firm (as you would expect) and has a limited amount of comfort materials on the top layer.
The Sealy Posturepedic High Performance Ambition Plush is soft and comfortable and does have a slight sinking feeling. Certainly one of the nicer Sealy mattresses we have tested.
The SleepMaker Byron Ultra Plush feels expensive but it doesn’t seem to support the body as evenly as well as we would have expected. Obviously very well built.
The SleepMaker Bondi Plush immediately feels expensive. It has a nice collection of puffy pockets on top which offer a very nice mix of comfort and spinal support.
The SleepMaker Noosa Plush has a network of light puffy pockets on the top layer which offer nice pressure relief and spinal support. Edge support is lacking a little.
The SleepMaker Mezzo Mattress has a light, bouncy feel to it and a visually appealing stripy line pattern on top. Comfort and support are quite decent.
