Cocoon by Sealy is Sealy's answer to the disruptive mattress in a box brands that have been so popular over the past two years. They offer two mattresses, both a variety of memory foams, a 'Chill' version and a regular version with a soft and a firm version. Through their massive brand awareness and mattress industry connections, it is no doubt that some of the disrupters are concerned about their mattress in a box entry.
Aireloom is a brand of California based E.S. Kluft & Company that is sold exclusively in mattress retailers across the US. It's claim to fame is their patented 'Aireloom lift' that increases the areas of low pressure when one is laying on the mattress. This gives the sense that the bed is cradling you. However, there are common complaints about the mattress's durability and some claim that it sags. Additionally, price is a potential issue with the brand because there isn't transparent pricing online.
Based on our aggregated reviews and our scoring method, we recommend Cocoon in this match up!

At first, I was skeptical about memory foam. We have been using a pillow top mattress for years, and seldom used anything else. Me and my husband have consequently been suffering from back pain for years, and realized a change was long overdue. When we received the mattress, it was rolled up and vacuum sealed in a box, so my first impression was that it would be too thin to fit our bed. But, after removing the plastic wrap and waiting not even 10 minutes, it expanded tremendously, and was very entertaining for my children. I initially thought that the mattress would be too soft for us, but the bed contains just enough firmness to be comfortable, yet just enough softness to create envy from my family whenever they sit on it (which is very often!). After the first week in years with much less back pains and a full nights sleep, we knew that we'd never look back. This is a mattress that pays for itself, and a purchase that will not be wished away. I highly recommend Cocoon by Sealy. 5 stars all around!View More Reviews
I was a bit skeptical about the new Cocoon mattress. However, my initial impression changed when we started unpacking the mattress. First, it was very easy to unpack and set-up. It's compact and slid out of the box easily and was easy to unroll onto the box spring. It took a minute to find out where to rip the plastic exterior bag but once we did that we were in business. It was much easier to get out of the bag and into place than the previous mattresses; it just isn't as bulky or doesn't seem as heavy as traditional mattresses. The mattress is a bit thinner than our previous mattress but I haven't found that to matter. I don't think it really requires the extra deep sheets to cover it even though that is what we used on it. I prefer a bit of a softer mattress and my husband prefers the opposite. However, I find sometimes with soft mattresses that they are too soft to the point where if you are on the edge of the bed, you feel like the mattress will collapse. In this case, I ordered the soft mattress hoping it would work out and have been very happy with it. The top of the mattress is like memory foam which makes it fit my need for a soft mattress but the under part is firmer which gives the support of a firm mattress and makes the mattress feel seem more stable. I'm not sure how this will last long term but for now it is quite nice. The mattress incredibly comfortable to sleep on and I have found that I can't feel the other person if they roll around in the bed. This isn't always something I have experienced with other mattresses and so have really appreciated that quiet feeling. Overall, this mattress has made for some great sleeping and I would definitely purchase it for other bedrooms in our house.
I'm used to big, bulky mattresses. The Cocoon is much lighter. I used to sleep on a pillow top. The Cocoon is even softer. I feel so cradled in it.
I like the mattress. I feel great in the morning but I prefer more firmer than the current one. Sealy made good mattresses for over decades. The texture and the thickness makes you feel comfortable when you sleep. I would recommend for anyone who's looking to sleep tight at night. If you are super heavy person this mattress is not for you.
The only thing that I would say is that the soft mattress is really a medium. I would have preferred an actual soft mattress, but this one isn't a bad mattress and we are sleeping much better on this new mattress than our old one.
Nice and comfortable- came on time and setup easily
It's pretty nice.
I like the idea of the bed in a box. I was very excited about trying the Sealy Cocoon Mattress. The box was extremely heavy, but it was well packed and easy to set up. The bed is surprisingly soft and comfortable.
I've been sleeping on my new mattress for a week. I purchased a firm mattress and can feel a wonderful difference in my body. I suffer from low back and hip pain. I've woken up each morning pain free. Two thumbs up!! I want to purchase a second one for my daughter so I'm hoping Sealy will offer me a returning customer discount.
WE GOT THE FIRM MATTRESS AND WERE A LITTLE SKEPTICAL BECAUSE IT WAS A LITTLE SOFT ON TOP...BUT WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED....VERY COMFORTABLE.....WE LOVE IT !
I've been sleeping on my new Cocoon mattress, and I think its been helping me sleep better than I have in a long time! The mattress came in a box and seemed very 'small' at first glance. Once we opened the box up onto our bed, it expanded into a full size mattress within a few minutes. The first night the mattress was way too firm for our liking, but I realize that mattresses (memory foam in general) need to be broken in. After a couple of days of sleeping on the Cocoon, I've been sleeping harder, and with much less movement than I normally do. I also can feel the movement of my sleeping partner significantly less than my previous, non- memory foam mattress. I haven't noticed being particularly cool or warm while sleeping yet, but my husband has mentioned that he felt it was cool for a foam mattress. All of this has definitely helped me sleep very well since I got it!
I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5, because the depth of the mattress is a bit more thin than I prefer. Now my nightstands seem too high! Also, I like to read in bed and it still seems a bit firm to really do that comfortably, but that might change with some more time. Other than that, so far, we like it more than our old mattress!
It was amazing to think a mattress could form from the pad that was mailed to us! As we cut the plastic away the foam raised up to form a bed. That got everyone in the household excited. The concept is great. We are used to sleeping on a regular spring mattress with a thick 3-4 inch foam pad on top. The Cocoon, at first, was hard and took some time to get used to. We have only slept on it for a week and the paperwork that comes with the bed says to give it 100 days. I am starting to like it. The Cocoon seems to form into your badyshape and actually support you. My husband sweats alot during his sleep and usually always has to kick the blackets off during the night, he says that since we have been sleeping on the Cocoon, he is more comfortable tempurature wise. What is also nice is that not being a spring matress it does not move as much when your sleeping partner moves or gets up. My Husband and I have different schedules, so this helps tremendously, so we are both not bothered when the other gets up. This is by no means a luxouriuos mattress, but it is starting to grow on us.
Bought a aireloom mattress 6 months ago from sit and sleep. Worst mattress I have ever owned. Sags so bad that I wake up with a backache every morning. Sis and sleep well not do a thing about itView More Reviews
My husband and I have never been so cozy comfortable. We have the split king with adjustable base.
I immediately was relieved from hip pain that I had from a fairly new Temperpedic mattress.
The only complaint we have is: WE DON'T WANT TO GET OUT OF BED IN THE MORNING.
We purchased our Aireloom Chantille Ultra Plush Euro Top Eastern King mattress from Mancini's in Mountain View, CA., Nov. 2012. What had sold us on spending $8101.00 on a mattress was that when we tested it in the showroom we did not feel the movement of our partner. For us, who are light sleepers, this is a major deal. Our body was supported and it was very comfortable. A bit too high for us, so we exchanged the tall box spring for one that was several inches shorter.
We received that mattress and straight away there was a problem. Not Mancini's problem, we would need to contact an independent inspector (Premier Inspection Services,LTD.), at our expense, to analyze the mattress and make a recommendation. He did, and basically said that the problem was in our head.
Here it is 2016 and the mattress still does not live up to the mattress that we tested in the showroom. The shape is trapezoidal, and we feel every movement that our partner makes. Rolling over, change in position, sneezing and coughing are all felt by the other.
We feel gypped and misled. How could we have been so stupid. We could have purchased a cheaper mattress and changed it out when it no longer was comfortable.
We initially bought a tempurpedic based on many recommendations. 30 days later and my back was an absolute mess. I could hardly move and I was at the chiropractor 6 times in 30 days. The chemical smell was horrible and I was sweating my butt off. My wife could not bear to sleep in it. I even had my kids jump on it to try to 'break it in'.
So, we went back to the store and the sales person was very helpful in assisting with the problems that we were having. My wife stumbled across the Aireloom mattresses and suggested I try it out. I fell in love with the support and comfort immediately. The price kind of scared me initially, but with 30 days of hell behind me, I was up for anything. I like the fact that there are many 'real' materials in this mattress and it is not a cookie cutter mattress made out of chemicals. The delivered the mattress promptly and our first night was heaven. Support, cool and comfort. We noticed immediately that when the two of us were in the middle of the bed, there was considerable sag to the mattress. I was kind of perplexed by this until I was on the floor playing with our dog and my wife and kids were horsing around in the bed. I noticed that there was significant flex in the box spring support slats when they were rolling around on the bed. Being an amish bed frame, the box is supported by 3/4 inch oak slats that run from side to side. I made up support blocks positioned under the slats in the middle of the bed and the problem was rectified. This bed is as comfortable today as it was the day we bought it.
This is so interesting....A couple of years ago, my mom gave me her brand new, Aireloom Hybrid Bamboo mattress as she decided to purchased a different size (mine is a queen). I live in an older building, and there is a place in my bedroom floor where it's uneven, so when I started to feel like I had to roll uphill to turn over in bed, I figured it was the floor, not the mattress; however, my handyman used his balance to show me that the floor underneath my bed is indeed level, which was so baffling to me, as I feel as though I am sleeping in a ditch when I am on my side of the bed.
I have a solid platform bed, with storage drawers, so it can't be chalked up to an unsteady base or bed frame. I stumbled upon this site accidentally this evening, while researching mattresses, and am now 100% convinced that my mattress is to blame, and I am not crazy.
Not only that, but the mattress weighs about a million pounds, and sits inside the platform, so that changing the fitted sheet is akin to a strenuous gym workout. Just lifting the mattress is ridiculous. Once, while lifting the corner, I felt the fabric tear, on the underside of the mattress.
My mom kept telling me how expensive the mattress was, that it was a really good mattress. I can't lie; it's super cushy and comfortable, but the sagging is beyond annoying. I have propped it up under one side with books/magazines to even it out, but I can promise you I won't be spending my own money on an aireloom, when I am ready to replace this one.
When we tried this bed in the store my husband felt very comfortable as soon as he laid on it. I felt like it was a little firm, but thought I could get use to it. From the first night it has been a nightmare for both of us. We are exhausted! My back, shoulders, hips ache. It has gotten so bad after two weeks I have gone to the spare bedroom. My husband is not sleeping well and it feels like only after two weeks there is already a body impression on his side of the bed. He feels that the bed sleeps hot. I have not noticed that yet. Very disappointed overall.
Do not even think of buying an airloom bed. We bought one from Macys in Oceanside. It began to sag within about a month or two.
Made the mistake of waiting too long to call the company. You have 90 days. After that, they came out and agreed that it sagged , but since it wasn't over an inch and a half they would not take it back. Actually the bed sagged an inch and the box spring sagged another 1/2 inch which equals the 1 1/2 inches but since the box spring was involved they would not take it back. Macy's refused to help. We sold the bed less than a year later with over a $3000.00 loss.
My advice is do not get involved with Airloom.
I purchased an Aireloom Mattress. The store that I bought it from no longer carries Aireloom. The inspector from the independent inspection company determined that the mattress failed. Originally, Linda Menzel from Aireloom wanted me to spend about $1420 to ship the mattress to California from New Jersey and back. When I pointed out that they had a plant in PA, Ms. Menzel stated that it would cost $620 to ship the mattress to and from PA.
When I accepted their offer to ship the mattress to PA, Aireloom wanted me to sign an agreement not to disparage as well as waive any future legal rights. After questioning Ms. Menzel, she stated that even if the mattress were defective when it was returned to me, I could not sue Aireloom. By adding the requirement of not to disparage and to waive all future rights, they violated the terms of their warranty and thus defrauded me.
In my opinion, Aireloom is a terrible company to deal with because they do not honor their warranty. If they did this to me, do you think they will treat you any differently?
I bought an aireloom mattress from OC mattress in Costa Mesa CA. Was told when I bought this that there was no memory foam, but alas this was untrue. After purchase I noticed heat retention and complained to the store and manufacturer. Found out that it contained 7% memory foam. After several months have noticed sagging and 'holes.'' Paid lots of money and disappointed. Would not recommend.
If you're researching a new mattress please read the above reviews and DO NOT buy an Aireloom product. Like the others above have written within weeks my wife and I found our new mattress to be forming deep depressions. We called Aireloom and they sent an inspector and the results were that the 'holes' were within expected body depressions. That's the last Aireloom I'll ever buy. Absolute junk.
