Optimum 12" Elite Courage Plush is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1289.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Night's Sleep We had considered purchasing an adjustable air mattress, but we are so glad we invested in the Sealy Optimum Elite Courage mattress instead. Although the mattress is rated somewhat firm, the experience of sleeping on it is mostly soft with just the right amount of support. The mattress seems to conform to my body no matter what sleep position I choose. The OptiCool Gel Memory Foam does provide a comfortable sleep temperature in both warm and cool weather. However, a liquid resistant mattress cover did seem to prevent the OptiCool from working correctly. We decided to add an adjustable base to our purchase. This was a great decision. The massage feature really works well with this mattress. Adjusting our sleep position with both our heads and feet elevated slightly is really comfortable. According to our FitBit activity monitors, the six months we have had this bed has provided us with a healthy and sound sleeping experience. Thanks Sealy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The mattress smells musty!!! I just got around to unwrapping this mattress and slept on it for one night last night. I kept smelling something musty and realized it was the mattress! I dread calling the store as I have switched out a couple of mattresses before but they were for my father, who is elderly and nothing suited him so I ended up with a mattress I didn't need. Long story. Anyway, I'm sure these people will give me a hard time now that I've finally been able to get the mattress out of plastic. I hope I don't get sick from it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My wife and I shopped for a new mattress and were waited on by the manager. We only believed half of what he told us but low and behold, he was right. We BOTH love this mattress and are still pleased with it. We are very thankful for the manager's help with our purchase. We refer him to our friends. The Smalls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mattress I've been sleeping on it since Nov. '14 and am very pleased. I sleep well. I graduated from a Tempur-Pedic Rhapsody which, with my seventy-year-old body, was too firm. This is ar from soft, but it supports well, but is "medium" firm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this matress! I've never been a fan of the foam bed, but somehow this bed seems to fall right between full foam and traditional. My average nights of sleep have gone from 6.5 to 7.5+ with fewer wake ups throughout the night. I also love the way the bed somehow holds me and keeps me cool. It's the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Packaged Deal - Best Sleep in a long time We trusted Jason, our sales person at MattressFirm, when he suggested some of the additional items we might want. Lucky enough they had a promotion going on where we got the plush with the purchase of the bed. It really has helped keep us cool at night, with being able let he mattress breathe... as it was explained to us. But I have noticed I don't feel as warm (living in Arizona that can be a problem) when I wake up as I do. So I'm not getting hot and having poor sleep. Plus it's also supposed to help keep anything from spilling onto the actual mattress, which with having an 18 month old does happen from time to time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a baby Love this mattress. Took a few weeks to adjust away from a spring mattress: after that, sleeping 8-9 hours solid has been epic! Wouldn't change it for the world!

Can you use a heated mattress pad with the COURAGE mattress?

Asked by: bruce63
Mattress pads, heated or not, can affect the comfort and contouring ability of a mattress. I am using an electric blanket to provide that warm cozy feeling during the cold winter months. This will cause the mattress to react to your body quicker but not have a negative affect on comfort.

If you are the only one sleeping on this mattress should you turn the mattress a round every so often ?

Asked by: Vickie16823
Yes. Rotating the mattress from head to toe periodically will allow for even wear over time.

Can you use a heating pad on this mattress if you needed to Without hurting the mattress ?

It will not hurt the mattress, but bear in mind that it may affect the feel and support of the mattress for YOU as the bed attempts to support & contour to your body.
