The Sealy optimum Elation Mattress is by far the most supportive mattress I have had the good fortune of reviewing. I normally sleep on a classic innerspring mattress and within a few minutes of lying down I was fighting to remain awake enough to take notes. A couple things to remember as your reading my experience with the Elation mattress, this review will be updated throughout the year as temperatures change and we receive different questions from you. We want to ensure this answer any questions you might have about this mattress so you can make a more informed decision about which one to purchase. Also remember that I am writing about MY experience with this mattress, and your may vary if you’re sleeping preferences differ from mine. With that said let’s begin!
As I have said before I am a side sleeper myself so knowing how suited a mattress is for side sleeping is one of the first things I think of when trying new mattresses. The Elation is an excellent side sleeper, and for a gel memory foam mattress, there was a surprising lack of the “sinking” feeling you get when you lay down on it, it was much more gradual, to the point where it barely registered as I got comfortable. Transitioning from one side to the other wasn’t nearly as awkward as it was on the lower end Optimum mattress. I turned over and the Elation was right there with me every step of the way making sure everything was supported. The Sealy Optimum Elation is quite an excellent side sleeping mattress.
The Elation mattress is also an excellent choice for the back sleeper! There was great support on my lower back (which is one of my problem areas) the whole time I lied there, which was very nice. This mattress can appeal to a lot of different consumers, the top feels soft and plush to the touch, but laying down the supportive capabilities are more than evident, making it possible for the Elation model to appeal to both soft and firm mattress lovers.
One of the big claims of the Sealy optimum mattress line is the heat dispersion advantage over typical memory foam. At the time of this writing it is the middle of February, a time in Las Vegas where heat dispersion isn’t really a problem. I will readdress this come Summer time when it is 110+ degrees outside and really put them this claim to the test. Check back periodically as we answer questions we have received about this model or any others and get your own questions answered!
Overall the Sealy Optimum Elation mattress is an extremely comfortable place to sleep, with an excellent support system that ensure your whole body gets the support it needs, right where it needs it, and it can appeal to both the soft mattress lover, and the firm mattress lover.
