I’m looking to replace an old Sealy Posturepedic Montoire in Firm, (made in 1997), with a softer mattress.
I want to find out the year that it was discontinued, and then see what mattress is the plush equivalent.
The mattress is still in good shape, but it’s not as comfortable as I’d like it to be, now that I too am 26 years older.
Many thanks, Nancy
Lots of things have changed since then.
At that time, models would routinely be changed every couple of years.
The model name would have been exclusive to the store where you bought it.
Every store would have the same mattress available with a different model name.
The last year Sealy made a 2 sided, flippable mattress was 2002.
Sealy was bought by Tempurpedic in 2013.
Your mattress has no memory foam in it.
Memory foam didn’t exist at that time.
Every Sealy mattress made today is upholstered with memory foam.
Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing…and off gasses the toxic chemicals from which memory foam is made.
(The industry is making a ton of money promoting that garbage at the expense of the consumer).
The quality is much less than yours from 1997.
You, definitely, don’t want to buy a Sealy, or any other name brand mattress. All have been sold to investors who are using memory foam to enhance profits.
The good news is, you can make your mattress comfortable by adding a soft latex topper.
It would be a shame to get rid of such a well-made mattress that still in good condition.
Adding a high-quality, Soft Organic Latex Mattress Topper provides you surface comfort that lasts for many years.
Suite Sleep, a company producing organic latex toppers in Colorado, is the among the best available.
