The Serta Memory Foam mattress is a popular choice for if you are looking for a good memory foam mattress without the price tag associated with the Tempurpedic brands, but how will you like sleeping on it?
Serta makes several brands of memory foam mattress, and have tried to distinguish themselves in the marketplace by offering some unique features in some of their memory foam beds.
Serta memory foam mattresses are manufactured by Sleep Innovations, and so you will see the exact same mattress listed in some places under this brand name.
The biggest draw to these mattresses is the price point. You'll pay less for these memory foam mattresses than you would, say, Tempur-pedic or something of that quality. When compared with other memory foam products within the same price range, it's obvious that Serta comes out very well with their mattress.
High density, 5-pound memory foam is used to manufacture Serta memory foam mattresses. The result is a durable, supportive, and comfortable mattress that appeals not only to the pocketbook, but also to your desire for ultimate comfort while sleeping.
Anyone who has done research on memory foam mattresses knows that the temperature regulation is a key feature of this type of bed.
Serta has taken that one step further and come up with several different ways to help cool those who find it too warm to sleep on memory foam.
One method is what they call Outlast® Smart Fabric Technology which claims to promote temperature regulation throughout the night, making it useful for women with hot flashes, or partners who have different temperature preferences. As a result, the mattress sleeps cooler than most other mattresses like it.
Cool Nature® Comfort Quilt® uses latex to create cooling a temperature regulation in some styles of Serta mattresses.
Cool Action Gel Memory Foam uses a special type of gel to create a cooler sleep environment for the Serta memory foam mattress.
The iComfort mattress line is one that comes in several styles and models. A few of those models offer a flexible foundation on which to place your mattress so you can adjust the mattress to sit up in bed comfortably. The prices for this mattress range from affordable to expensive.
The reviews we found for this bed were mostly positive, however a number of people found the iComfort "hard as a rock" or found that it did not reduce the heat as much as they hoped.
This is Serta's newest memory foam product, just released to the market in 2010. What's so different about it? It features Serta's Cool Action Gel Memory Foam - memory foam infused with Serta's MicroSupport Gel.
This special gel makes the memory foam mattress even more supportive! Millions of MicroSupport Gel cells gather under those areas of the body that need extra support while feeling like you're supported evenly across your entire body.
The open cell structure of the memory foam and gel combined together effectively whisks heat away from the body and allows you to sleep cooler. The combination also gives you a more breatheable sleeping surface than traditional memory foam mattresses.
Another great feature of this new mattress by Serta is that you can opt to purchase the Serta Motion Perfect Adjustable Foundation along with your iComfort mattress. The foundation allows you to lower and raise the mattress for ultimate sleeping and sitting positions.
Serta offers a risk-free trial for 4 months. If you purchase it, it comes with a 25-year warranty. Pricing for the iComfort ranges from $2,099 for a twin size to $2,099 for a king size mattress. Serta also makes these memory foam mattress brands: Serta Perfect Sleeper, Serta Perfect Sleeper Clairmont, Serta Perfect Day, and Serta Luxury Response.
Overall, the Serta Vera Wang beds have not been well reviewed, as consumers complained of premature sagging, the need to turn the bed often, and a hefty price tag that did not match the value that the bed delivered.
Serta no longer manufactures them, although you can still find them for sale at some mattress stores.
These are some of the popular choices.
Euro-Top Mattress - this model is much like a pillow top in construction except that it has an additional upholstery layer on the top to provide firmer support for those who like a firm mattress but want to feel like they're sleeping in luxury
Serta Plush Mattress - extra plush, soft layers are added on top of the foam core of this mattress, providing an even softer sleeping surface than the other memory foam mattresses
Traditional Memory Foam with zippered cover - for those who prefer a classic memory foam mattress, this one is just that. It's a simple memory foam mattress inside a cover without the extra plushy layers. There is a 4-inch and an 8-inch thick memory foam basic mattress available from Serta.
Most memory foam mattresses run in the range of several thousand dollars for one mattress, however you can find some very affordable Serta memory foam mattresses out there.
These can be found in places like Overstock.com which sells overstock from other stores. Serta also manufactures a more affordable memory foam mattress that begins somewhere around $300, making it a bit more affordable for those who must stay or want to stay within a reasonable budget.
Because of the many health concerns about outgassing and chemical odors from memory foam, I recommend that you do some research or try out one of these less expensive models to be sure that you are comfortable with it.
The Serta company website does not provide a way to easily find information specificaly about their memory foam mattress offerings, but you can search some of the larger online retailers like Overstock and Amazon to get an idea of what is available.
The quality of this model of Serta memory foam mattress may not reach the top competitors, but they can offer a decent quality foam mattress to those who desire or need a lower price point without sacrificing quality altogether.
Customers who purchased these lower priced Serta memory foam mattress were overall happy with the value, but still had varied responses to the memory foam, depending on their individual preference.

It could be argued that there aren't really any drawbacks to the memory foam mattress by Serta. It seems to be well received by consumers as a quality competitor in the memory foam mattress market.
The main consumer complaints about this mattress are the same that you will hear about any brand of memory foam mattress, that it sleeps hot, is very heavy, and has a chemical smell.
Some customers found the lower priced iComfort memory foam beds to be too hard.
The BBB rating for Serta is not quite as high as some of their competitors, but is still in the very good range.
Most owners of the Serta mattresses made with memory foam seem to appreciate the quality for the price paid.
There are those people who discover that they have an allergic reaction, sometimes a severe one, to sleeping on memory foam. Please read more about the potential dangers of memory foam before you decide to purchase any brand of mattress containing memory foam.
