For nearly a century, Serta has been bringing the best in mattress technology to bedrooms across the United States. They remain America’s number one mattress manufacturer, with consumers loving their wide selection and high-quality construction.

As more sleepers are transitioning from traditional innerspring mattresses to all-foam beds, Serta is meeting their needs with memory foam mattresses that suit every sleeper. In recent years, they’ve begun crafting memory foam mattresses to compete in the bed-in-a-box industry. 

In this review, we’ll share with you what you should know about Serta’s three bed-in-a-box foam mattresses to help you decide what mattress is best for you.

Serta Memory Foam Mattresses Overview

Not only does online mattress shopping open up the number of options available to you, but it also means luxury mattresses at bargain prices. Along this vein, Serta now manufactures memory foam beds that are sold online rather than in physical stores. Instead of going to a local retailer, you can order these mattresses to be delivered right to your door.

Here we will review Serta’s three memory foam bed-in-a-box mattresses.

Mattress Name Mattress Type Best for Price Range
Serta iComfort Memory Foam Hot Sleepers $809–$1,299
Serta Premium 9 inch Memory Foam Budget Shoppers $399–$799
Perfect Sleeper Express 10 inch Memory Foam Combo Sleepers $499–$899

Serta iComfort Mattress

The Serta iComfort is a plush soft mattress with a few different cooling upgrades and firmness levels available. You can choose between adding cooling gel, add carbon fiber cooling, the carbon fiber cooling with increased breathability, or the carbon fiber with an entire air support layer added. Check out the iComfort Hybrid for a cooling bed with additional support.

Serta Premium 9 inch Mattress

The Serta Premium 9” is a firm mattress made up of two layers of foam. Its upper comfort layer is 2” of slow response, gel-infused foam atop a Foam Core support layer. The gel foam reduces heat retention, absorbing and dissipating body heat rather than feeding it back over the night. The slow response foam gently cradles the body, without allowing too much give. The feel is one of firm, cool support with pressure relief where you need it the most.

Serta Perfect Sleeper Express 10 inch Mattress

The Serta Perfect Sleeper Express 10” mattress is a slightly more plush version of the Premier. With 3” of premium gel memory foam rather than 2”, the Perfect Sleeper Express 10” achieves greater pressure point relief. The additional cushioning is slight, yielding a medium-firm feel, making it an ideal mattress for back sleepers who like a bit of comfort. And with exceptional motion isolation, this mattress fits the needs of couples who share a bed.

Serta Perfect Sleeper Express 12 inch Mattress

The Serta Perfect Sleeper Express 12” mattress is a luxury memory foam bed. Its 3” premium gel memory foam top layer cushions pressure points, while the 3” of gel-infused support foam molds to the body. This all-foam bed is best for those who like a moderate contouring hug, a feel that falls between sleeping “in” and “on” a mattress. With exceptional pressure relief combined with reliable support from the 6” foam core, this mattress soothes back pain by keeping the spine properly aligned. This mattress is best for back sleepers and a good mattress choice for side sleepers.

Serta recommends that you give your new mattress three or more weeks before you make a final decision. Both the mattress and your body can take time to adjust. This break-in period is particularly important for memory foam mattresses. The foam takes weeks of pressure to slightly break in and deliver the feel that it will have for the following years.

The 120-day trial period only applies to mattresses purchased at When you buy your mattress at a brick-and-mortar store or through a third-party online retailer, you should inquire about their return policy. Keep in mind that online mattresses are usually backed by a more generous trial period than in-store purchases.

How long do Serta memory foam mattresses last?


Serta memory foam mattresses are made to last you anywhere between seven to ten years if they are well cared for. Typically, caring for your Serta mattress includes using a mattress protector with your mattress, avoiding spills, and regularly rotating your bed every few months.


Can you flip a Serta memory foam mattress?


No, Serta memory foam mattresses are not made to be flippable. These one-sided beds should be rotated instead of flipped to maintain durability(180 degrees from head to foot). Rotate your mattress every three to six months to keep away premature sagging and dips in your mattress.


Where are Serta mattresses made?


Every Serta mattress is made in the United States.


Is Serta memory foam toxic?


No, Serta memory foam mattresses are safe for your health. Every memory foam used in Serta mattresses is CertiPUR-US certified to be free from certain harmful chemicals, including things like heavy metals and ozone depleters. Even the fire retardants are made with no harmful chemicals.


Why does my new Serta mattress have an odor?


Every mattress with memory foam needs a few days for off-gassing. This is because memory foam is made from polyurethane, a material known to release particles for the first few days after it’s opened. Rest assured, the odor isn’t dangerous and it dissipates within a few days.
