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.
Vispring, formerly Vi Spring or Vi-Spring, is a luxury bed founded in 1901 and operating in London, England. It offers luxury materials and a line of hybrids and innerspring mattresses with all natural ingredients such as horsetail, wool, alpaca, cashmere, and silk. They are generally sold through out luxury retailers throughout North America and Europe. For these reasons, this brand boasts high prices for mattresses, but dedicates itself to exclusivity.

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.
Not quite such a good quality as the one it replaced but still fineView More Reviews
Really disappointed with this mattress and the level of customer care received. We initially noted a strong 'sheepy' odour coming from our newly acquired Vi Spring mattress which permeated our bedroom. We complained to JL who told us to air it. We stripped the mattress and aired the sheets each day for nearly a month but no difference to the smell was made. JL then replaced the mattress but the replacement is only marginally better than the original. Again, we aired it every day for the best part of a month, but the smell still persists. Vi Spring then sent an assessor out to look at the mattress, which is apparently not faulty. We have complained to JL again and are now awaiting another assessor. I get the distinct impression we are just being fobbed off and have ultimately made a very expensive and rather smelly mistake. :(
After visiting the store first I thought I had picked the ideal mattress for us. I couldn't see it on line but thought I was choosing a better one. It is comfortable and we sleep well on it but are concerned it's not firm round the edges. When you sit on the bed the rim collapses right down and does not feel like something a quality bed should do.
I am delighted with this mattress, quite delighted – easily the most comfortable bed I've ever owned. I have an old solid-base bed, not a divan, and I wanted a mattress that wasn't as deep as most typical, cheaper High St mattresses (this is only 21cm); I also prefer the well-ventilated, pocket sprung types as they are much cooler than memory foam mattresses, even the best. This fits the bill perfectly...and the bed! It's probably even better with a divan base.
Everything about this product spells quality and I think it's worth paying the higher price. I'm getting on in years a bit now with a tendency to backache – especially if I lie on my back – but the first night with this Vispring, I slept most of the night on my back without even a twinge the next day.
I've not had this long enough to comment on its long-term durability but the Lifetime Guarantee speaks volumes. Very highly recommended.
This mattress is utterly gorgeous. Have never slept so well. Highly recommended.
I bought this because it's Vispring and they have such an excellent reputation. I took a huge chance, and a plunge, buying it online without even trying it. But I had been doing a lot of prior research into mattresses. It is as the name says a Superb Mattress. More expensive than others but it's so comfortable and beautiful quality. You really do get what you pay for!
We just moved house and I bought this mattress for my two year old son's bed. It is extremely comfortable even when an adult has slept on it. My husband kind of wishes we bought this model for ourselves too.
This is the second VI Spring mattress I've had this problem with. I've had it over 6 weeks and if anything the smell is getting worse. I was told to air it , which I've tried to do (but I also need to sleep on it) , and don't think it's acceptable to deliver it to my home to do the airing., it should be fit for use when delivered. There is horsehair in the filling , and that's what it smells like , farmyard of some sort. It smells the whole room.
We were replacing a previous Vi-Spring, after 10 years or so. It was good to have an informative, but not pushy, salesman to guide us through what was available, and to have time to try out several. No criticisms.
We bought this mattress because of the quality craftsmanship Vispring offers, and the feel of it in store was quite comfortable and less springy than some other models. However, when we first slept on it, we wondered if they had given us the firm tension instead of the medium on accident. We checked the tag on the mattress and it was in fact medium. I have given four stars as we are happy with the mattress overall, and it is much much better quality than our old one. I suppose maybe it needs some breaking in before it feels like the one in store. However we will be purchasing a mattress topper anyways as we prefer a softer 'cloud' feel.
Spent some time researching mattresses and had some questions which Vi Spring were happy to answer - they were transparent about their product. The mattress has a different feel to our old one - not such a 'springy' feel, but we have slept really well since we purchased it. We are very happy with the product.
We are delighted with the comfort offered by this mattress. It gives plenty of support to the back and ensures a good night's sleep.
