Perfect Sleeper Essentials

Essentials is a collection within the Perfect Sleeper collection by Serta. Perfect Sleeper was created by Serta cooperatively with the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) about 75 years ago. NSF provided input as Serta designed mattresses to deal with five common problems with sleep. These problem issues are (1) tossing and turning, (2) lack of support (which leads to back pain), (3) too hot or too cold for sleeping, (4) disturbance by sleeping partner, and (5) mattress roll-off, roll-together, and/or sagging.

Serta provides Guide to Sleeping Well from the National Sleep Foundation with every Perfect Sleeper innerspring mattress. It was written to help the reader get the best night's sleep.

The key feature of the Serta Perfect Sleeper Essentials collection is the Continuous Support continuous coil innerspring. According to Serta, this innerspring is combined with Pressure Balancing Design to balance support and comfort. There are five key benefits the company claims for this design:

- Pressure Relieving Comfort
- Proper Back Support
- Balanced Sleeping Temperature
- Undisturbed Sleep
- Prevents Roll-off or Sag

Pressure Relieving Comfort - This combination of fluffy fiber and foam, called Pressure Balancing Design, enhances relief of pressure points, which are caused when some parts of the body bear more than their share of the sleeper's weight. The actual materials used in this depends on the model.

Proper Back Support - This is the role of the Continuous Support innerspring, with coils made of tempered high-gauge steel. These coils, each attached to the next, support the entire body of the sleeper.

Balanced Sleeping Temperature - The quilted tops of Essentials mattresses contain Serta's Pillo-Fill, a quilting material which is breathable, allowing air to flow through, cooling the sleeping surface. The fibers in the Pillo-Fill also wick away moisture to keep the sleepers dry, which helps keep temperatures moderate.

Undisturbed Sleep - It is motion transfer which disturbs sleep when a partner moves. The Serta Continuous Support innerspring dampens motion transfer, minimizing partner disturbance.

Prevents Roll-off or Sag - Serta calls its design to combat roll-off and sagging Comfort Last. This includes a reinforced edge support system. Part of this system is a steel rod in the edge of the sleeping surface. It also includes the upper and lower perimeter rods of the innerspring.

Models - Names of models in the Serta Perfect Sleeper Essentials collection vary from one retailer or retail group to another. For instance, one retailer has three models: Warren, Fairport, and Reedley. These differ in the comfort layer, with gel memory foam in the the first, memory foam in the second, and a "comfort pad" in the third. Some of the model names at other retailers are Woodlake, Seabright, Huxley, and Winslet. Whatever the model, it comes with a choice of comfort levels -- Firm, Plush, or Pillow Top. Accordingly, heights range from 8.75 to 12 inches.

Perfect Sleeper Essentials mattresses work well with good box springs, but Serta does not list box springs on the website now. They do list and sell their Motion Perfect and Motion Custom adjustable bases. These adjustable beds do have several advantages, especially finding better positions for comfort and back health. But if adjustables are too expensive, you may purchase a box spring, which is available through almost all retailers.

Mattresses in the Perfect Sleeper Essentials collection are non-flipable.

Update (2014)

On its site, Serta lists four models in the Perfect Sleeper Essentials collection. To find these models on the Serta site, click the "Shop the Collection" button on the Perfect Sleeper Essentials page. These four models are Prestbury Super Pillow Top, Prestbury Firm, Prestbury Plush, and Grenquist Firm. Retailers may have different names for these models. For instance, US-Mattress has Warren for Prestbury and Reedley for Grenquist, while Wayfair uses the names New Market and Woodlake. Several retailers have a Grenquist Plush model or its equivalent.

The covers of Perfect Sleeper Essentials mattresses are quilted with Pillo-Fill polyester fibers, FireBlocker Fiber, and 1" of Serta PillowSoft Foam.

The three Prestbury models are about 12" and the Grenquist is about 10" high. The final height is determined by the "top upholstery" (aka "comfort layers"). Each Prestbury model has Cool Twist Gel Memory Foam and a Serta Insulator Pad. Other materials, depending on model, are Serta Comfort XD Foam, Serta PillowSoft Foam, and Serta Support Foam. The Grenquist top upholstery consists of a Serta Support Pad.

All Perfect Sleeper Essentials mattresses now come with Serta's 10-year limited warranty. There is a a 45-day trial period, called a Comfort Assurance Program. Serta says, "We know that even after making a careful selection, sometimes people may need a different level of comfort."

The Motion Perfect adjustable base is now replaced by the Motion Perfect II as the recommended foundation for Perfect Sleeper Essentials mattresses.
