Old Sealy Posturepedic Mattress, Still Comfortable.

Joe writes:Discontinued
Hi Pete,
I have an old Sealy Posturepedic queen size mattress, model Mira Loma II.  
It has a Damask Cover, 782 High Profile Tempered Steel Coils, Heavy Duty Border Rod Edge Guard and Torsion Bar Boxspring.  
It came with a 10/10 year warranty, and Yes, I still have the paperwork.  
I bought it in 2002….I rotate and flip it regularly. It is, STILL, comfortable but it is losing firmness.   
What would  you recommend?

Thanks, Joe
 
Hi Joe,
My recommendation is to do nothing.
The key phrase in your question is, “It is, STILL, comfortable”.
The time to buy a new mattress is when it is no longer comfortable.
After 18 years, losing a little firmness is normal.
You bought the last great mattress that Sealy made.
You’d be appalled to to learn that there isn’t a Sealy mattress, today, that’s worth buying.
In 2003, just a year after you bought your two sided Sealy Posturepedic, they became one sided.
10 years later, Sealy was sold to Tempurpedic.
Every Sealy mattress made, today, is upholstered with memory foam…the worst upholstery material ever invented.
There is no memory foam in the mattress you have, which is why it lasted for such a long time.
My only suggestion is to add a latex topper to your mattress.
Latex is and has been the best upholstery material for the last 100 years…most comfortable and longest lasting.
A latex topper will absorb your body weight and greatly retard any further wear of your mattress.
You’ll want to hang on to that mattress for as long as you can.
You don’t want to buy a new mattress, if you can avoid it.
All of the name brands have been sold and all are now upholstered with memory foam.
None of them are of the quality they had once been.
Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing.
Here is a link to the Pure Bliss Natural Talalay Latex Toppers:
UPS shipping is free and there’s no sales tax.

Thanks, Pete
