The name Sealy came from the town of Sealy in Texas where a man by the name of Daniel Haynes started making mattresses from pressed cotton in the 1880’s. Sealy Corporation is the largest bedding manufacturer in North America and sells through some 7000 retail outlets. It is well known for it’s Posturepedic line of mattresses which was first introduced in 1950. [REF Sealy Mattress Reviews 2010]
Pricing for a Sealy Posturepedic queen set today ranges from $499 to $2199 in the US but depends on the retailer. There are 3 different series at this time – Preferred, Reserve and Signature.

Sealy also created an Orthopedic Advisory Board in 2006. The board is comprised of orthopedic surgeons, researchers and the like. Sealy claims that with the help of this board they have managed to create a “revolutionary push-back support system” that they use on all the new Sealy Posturepedic mattresses. This system apparently distributes weight away from the heavier parts of the human body thereby relieving pressure from these areas.
