Sealy Posture Premier is the entry level line up of the Sealy brand. The innerspring, which is what provides you with support, consists of what's called a bonnel coil. This type of innerspring unit is found in all of the entry level mattresses found in Sealy, Simmons, Serta, SpringAir, King Koil, and most private label (no name) manufactures.
What Type of Customer Should Buy a Sealy Posture Premier?
This level of Sealy was manufactured for the customer that needs a bed for a guestroom or a small child. Those who usually buy the Premiere level for their master bedroom are on a very tight budget, plan to use the bed for a few years, and are of average height and weight (Look at getting a Sealy if you need a long term mattress with more support). Those who are in the 300 lb and up category will get a rude surprise when they have a Posture Premier delivered to their house; the innerspring is not designed for that amount of pressure.
Despite what the mattress salesman may tell you, Sealy only offer's a 3 year warranty on the Premier level (this level offer's a 10 year). There are companies all over the internet claiming their Posture Premier normally sells at $2999 in a queen size set but they have it on sale for $399. Be wary of this kind of false advertising as the average everyday price in the industry is in the $399-$699 range (depending on the model).
Another one of the key features you get in a Posturepedic but not in a Posture Premier is foam encased edge support. What this means is when you sit on the side of the mattress, it doesn't feel nearly as sturdy as a Posturepedic. You can usually feel the coils on the side of a mattress that's not foam encased.
The Sealy Posture Premier is an excellent choice for those who need a bed for a guestroom, for a child, or for a short term master bedroom.
