Sealy Optimum Review 

Taking a closer look at Sealy's Optimum Radiance Gold Mattress

Sealy Optimum mattresses provide unprecedented temperature regulation for an amazing night’s sleep. The Sealy Optimum Radiance Gold mattress features a medium-firm comfort level which is a little more suited to those who sleep on their side. The Radiance Gold is comprised of three layers of foam that have incorporated gel memory foam throughout which will help keep you from getting too warm, and will provide very comfortable body contouring support that you will not find in a standard innerspring mattress.

Comfort by Position

  • comfort for the side sleeper with the Sealy Optimum Radiance Gold Mattress


    The thing about Sealy Optimum mattresses is that they become exactly what you need every night, so for those of us that sleep on our side, the Sealy Optimum Radiance is perfect. Since is has a softer comfort level than the entry model it is more ideal for the side sleeper. Without the overly firm feel, any pressure on your shoulder and hip will be lessened as you comfortably sink into the mattress. Changing from one side to the other was a little awkward if you are not used to the sinking sensation, but it passes quickly, and regains its comfort even faster

  • comfort for the back sleeper with the Sealy Optimum Destiny Gold Mattress


    Maintaining some of that firm feel is important for the back sleeper. With the gel memory foam layers on top the bed conforms to your body in an effort to keep your spine in perfect alignment so you sleep more soundly. This makes this mattress ideal for back sleepers as well as side sleepers.

  • comfort for the stomach sleeper in the Sealy Optimum Destiny Gold mattress


    The Sealy Optimum Radiance gold mattress features a medium-firm comfort level which may be a little too soft for stomach sleepers. Ask yourself if you like other medium-firm mattresses, if the answer is Yes, you must also consider the sinking sensation that goes along with gel memory foam. As you lay down the mattress will slowly conform to your unique shape, and may create an uncomfortable curve in the back for the stomach sleeper.

Writers Bias

Since this is a mattress review I thought it would be helpful to you to know where you are receiving this information from. I am 6’2” about 260lbs, kind of a bigger guy, and I am a side sleeper that is used to sleeping on a pretty standard pillow top (not-flippable) mattress. So I am familiar with pressure points on a mattress, with my arm going numb because of the way I slept on it, and many of the other typical complaints most people have about mattresses.
