Sealy Mattress Review The 1400 Genoa Latex

The one thing many people think is that if they have a new bed it will fix their bad back. A Sealy mattress can’t perform miracles but it can help ease the pain or aches giving you a better start to the day.

It’s not easy to choose the best mattress for your needs. Even if you’ve narrowed it down to a few choices, you may still have some unanswered questions. We’re here to help. In this article we’ll be showing you the pros and cons of the Sealy 1400 Genoa Latex mattress.

Choosing the right mattress means investing in your quality of sleep. The average person uses their mattress every night for around seven years (or ten with a Hypnos mattress), so buying the right mattress for your particular needs is extremely important. Making an uninformed choice can lead to problems in the future including back pain or shoulder pain, which in turn can lead to sleep deprivation, poor quality of sleep and even having to go mattress shopping again sooner than you'd like.

This week my Sealy mattress review is the 1400 Genoa Latex mattress.

We have this Sealy divan bed in our bed shop displayed as a 135cm / 4’6” double, with 2 drawers on a platform top divan. Complimented with a Sealy headboard it’s a cracking looking bed. Straight away this set up is very smart, the contrast of an almost brilliant white micro quilted knitted cover and dark upholstery fabric makes this bed look sharp and crisp, giving a look and feel of quality.

When we review Sealy mattresses and infact any mattress we give them the ‘bum’ test. This involves sitting on the side to see how well it holds you, while checking to see how much the mattress folds in. This Sealy poturepedic mattress has a patented unicase that surrounds the springs so sitting on the edge doesn’t bow the sides out. Due to the encapsulation of the pocket springs It stays in place.

After spending 20 or so minutes trying this bed out, I couldn’t quite get comfy, the covers felt sumptuous and soft but personally for me, it felt too firm, almost as though I was lying on it and not getting the full benefit of the 1400 pocket springs in this king size Sealy mattress. Now this Sealy mattress is rated medium but to me it felt like a medium firm tension. I am only 10 stone and 6’2” so being tall and slim means I benefit from something softer. This mattress is clever because the springs are individually encased and are motion and weight responsive with eco-friendly tencel fibres to help keep you cool at night. This makes me feel almost annoyed it doesn’t suit me. However, I believe it would be ideal for those that prefer to sleep on their backs or fronts.

Even though the Sealy 1400 Genoa Latex bed has so many benefits and has previously won a Which? Best Buy, I do not believe it’s suitable for someone of my slight build. You must always buy something that feels supportive and comfortable to your individual needs. On paper this bed has more merits than most making it even more important to come and try before you buy.

The Sealy divan base that compliments the mattress a platform top. The drawers are on a metal runner system meaning they will last for many years to come. The fabric choices are not as varied as some of our supplers, but that’s not always a bad thing. There are several neutral colors that would be sure it match or compliment most room designs and some bolder colours for those that want to make a statement with their new Sealy bed. And here's the good news, we've often got some great offers, particularly on a Sealy king size mattress, so it's well worth checking out our Sealy mattresses for sale.
