Kingsdown are one of those traditional US mattress manufacturers that have had to adjust to the times and separate themselves from the crowd by making a name for themselves not only for reliability and quality but also for innovation. Over a century old, Kingsdown’s quality workmanship and adaptability got them to the forefront of the quality mattress-making business and we can see in their Body Diagnostics system or “Sleep to Live” as they now call it, their ability to remain creative and to keep pushing the boundaries has helped to keep them there. But what about Kingsdown mattress prices? How affordable are they?
The first thing to point out when looking at prices is that we are looking at beds that use fine quality materials in the bases and the mattresses, including high-tempered steel in the coils and moisture-resistant, allergy and odor-free fabrics; they use a high standard box spring design that has won accolades and awards; and they finish the mattresses by hand. Kingsdown also use the diagnostics system that takes 18 measurements from your body, makes thousands of calculations and then recommends the perfect mattress that will best conform to your individual shape and weight, so they use science and take the guesswork out of the process. The MySide range allows you and your partner to specify each side of the bed exactly how you want it.
Bearing all this in mind you would not expect the Kingsdown mattresses to be very cheap. They vary from around $800 up to $4000, depending on size, exact materials and design. For a standard Queen then budget in the $1500-$2000 range.
If you are considering a Kingsdown then you are considering a box-spring mattress as they don’t use memory foam or latex foam, like many other traditional US manufacturers do now. The trick always is to shop around – if there’s a particular model you have tried out in the store and like the feel of, then you may be able to pick up a bargain at one of the online retailers.
Kingsdown are one of the oldest, most established manufacturers in the US. They have been at the forefront of mattress making in the country for over 100 years and now distribute to 20 countries around the world. Following is a brief look at the company, what they stand for and what you can expect from a typical Kingsdown bed if you are considering buying one.
Kingsdown are based in North Carolina and they started to make a name for themselves in the early 1900′s by hand-assembling box spring units that developed a reputation for lasting quality and comfort. They survived the difficult war years by using iron springs instead of steel. Later on their scientific approach to mattress design won the company accolades during the 1980′s and 1990′s, culminating in the development of the Body Diagnostics system that is the only computer-based system that helps you choose the perfect mattress for your body type – more about that later.
The ranges made by Kingsdown fall into 4 main brands – Kingsdown, MySide, BedMatch and Sleeping Beauty.
The standard Kingsdown beds are sold as supportive – allowing for proper body alignment of head, shoulders, hips and heels– and pressure-relieving – allowing for a comfortable night’s sleep. They are the standard box spring system beds with sturdy foundations that they have built their name on, promising great shock absorption and even distribution of body weight to relieve pressure on joints. These mattresses boast low-pressure sleep surfaces, so that you can stay in one position longer and experience undisturbed sleep. Above the box spring the comfort layers use Kingsdown’s Cushion Cloud Construction technology, providing softness that conforms to the body shape and thereby relieves pressure.
The Kingsdown Sleep to Live brand name actually covers the MySide and BedMatch collections and is the latest name for their Sleep Diagnostics system that we mentioned above. These collections use the Sleep to Live diagnostics to match your body type to the right, posture-supporting and maximum comfort mattress, based upon questions asked, 18 careful measurements taken from lying on the diagnostic bed and over 1000 calculations made by their program. Again the two cornerstones of Kingsdown philosophy are proper spinal alignment and pressure relief, which we saw in the Kingsdown mattress described above, but Sleep to Live tailor-designs the perfect combination for you based upon the analysis, rather than relying on guesswork.
If you are shopping with a partner the diagnostic bed will measure you both and recommend the sleep surface that is best suited to each of you. The MySide collection allows you to have one side of the bed adapted to your body type and the other side adapted to your partner’s body type, once the Sleep to Live Diagnostics system has analyzed what’s best for you.
You can see that Kingsdown, despite being one of the traditional, established names in bed manufacturing, are also innovators within the industry. They still stand by the principals of the mattresses that have built their name for reliability but they incorporate the latest technology in achieving that nowadays.
According to the Kingsdown sales literature, its Body System mattress makes allowances for each individual body type, for that read your individual body type – to ensure you get the support and comfort that you require. One aim of this Kingsdown Body System mattress review is to determine whether this is fact or not.
We have to question whether an inner-spring mattress, which is what the Body System and every other Kingsdown mattress is, can ever give the same level of comfort of the newer memory foam mattresses. The inner-spring mattress is based on old technology, but that technology has been adapted and improved on immensely over the years, and now some of the world’s finest mattresses are built around the inner-spring system.
Kingsdown don’t manufacture their own components for the Body System mattress, but that’s not necessarily a negative thing, as they are no different from any of the major manufacturers in that matter. Where all manufacturers claim to be unique is in their design and manufacturing processes. Kingsdown’s unique selling proposition is the computer technology it uses to constantly develop cutting edge mattress technology.
What are the advantages of the Body System mattress?
- Because Kingsdown mattresses are not as well known as such as Sealy or Simmons, you can buy a similar quality mattress for considerably less than you would pay for one of the leading brands.
- Each Kingsdown Body System mattress is topped with a 10 inch thick layer of luxury foam to make the mattress as comfortable as possible.
- A Mattress’ greatest enemy is moisture, and to counter that, Kingsdown has incorporated a Flexatron™ insulator to prevent sweat being absorbed. This has the added benefit of eliminating odors, and making the mattress mildew resistant.
- Kingsdown’s Cushion Cloud™ construction ensures that the comfort layers of the mattress provides proper spinal alignment so that any pressure points are eliminated.
What are the disadvantages?
- The Kingsdown Body System mattress is a very heavy mattress which makes it very difficult to move. This is not a huge disadvantage, because mattresses don’t need moving too often, but it is one I thought worth mentioning.
- I have heard reports of some retailers delivering different Kingsdown mattresses from the ones they had on display in their stores. So check very carefully that you get the mattress that you ordered.
While researching this Kingsdown Body System mattress review, it has become obvious that this mattress is very similar in quality and design to the likes of the Sealy Posturpedic mattress – they make use of similar materials and technologies. If anything, what gives the Kingsdown the edge, is their use of computer technology to help their customers find the right mattress for them.
If you believe in living life king size, a ‘Kingsdown mattress’ is what you are looking for. This mattress is exactly what it sounds like, truly king size. This is no cheap mattress though, and is seen on the most luxurious form of beds, with huge massive side cushions to give it a pleasing look. To add to its luxurious features, it is extremely durable, in the sense that they can be used for many years to come – without any damage or fading of its quality. Kingsdown mattresses are by far the most luxurious and elegant items you can have in your bedroom.

A Kingsdown mattress is one of the most reputed high profile mattresses around, aiming to give you the richest and most classy look possible for your bedroom. Although there are sometimes reasonable discounts and offers on these mattresses, generally Kingsdown mattress prices are at the top end of the scale, but for your money, you get a top quality product that will serve you well for many years to come.
A Kingsdown matress has always been renowned for its use of new technologies, and this is based around the ‘Body Diagnostics’ adjustment process. The mattresses closely monitor the sleeping habit of a person, and it adjusts the surface of the bed to adapt to his/her sleeping positions. The intelligent working of this bed ensures that the person sleeping on it, is most comfortable and able to achieve perfect posture. One of the most important manufacturing features of the Kingsdown mattress is that they are constructed with ‘Full Body Surround’ and ‘Cloud Cushion’. Through this, body weight is evenly distributed, thereby giving a relaxed sleep as the pressure points are relieved. Broad surface allows the best support system for our body.
If you’ve ever read a Kingsdown mattress review before, you’ll know that they provide extreme levels of comfort to every sleeper, as they are in-built with technology which allows the bed to adjust, according to your movements while in sleep. The Body Diagnostic technology has never been seen in this type of product before, so Kingsdown mattresses have certainly made a mark in today’s mattress market.
The Kingsdown mattresses reviews that are available will talk about other types of mattress with varied additional features such as the Perfect Partner, Body System and Plush Sense. Additionally, other types include Body Duet, Body Essential, Body System, Body Blend and Body Caress mattresses.
Needless to say, with such amazing technical features, taking care of our sleeping habits, buying a Kingsdown mattress is worth the investment and definitely one of the best decisions we can ever make. It is a once in a lifetime investment and the benefits seen through the use of these mattresses are numerous.
Kingsdown mattresses are one of the most popular mattresses used world wide. Initially, they were entirely hand made, and materials used to make these mattresses were all natural; horsehair was used for insulation and hard skin case.
Since the early days, things have changed dramatically, and now, Kingsdown mattresses are now entirely made of hypoallergenic materials, using the manufacturing support of advanced technology – the final finish is still done by hand though to ensure the best definition of comfort and luxury for the users. The list of luxury features doesn’t end there though…….
Every Kingsdown mattress is made with allergy-free materials, and those materials of are all mildew and bacteria resistant. Thus if you a have tendency for dust allergy, or respiratory problems you can use this type of mattress safely. This type of mattress is 100% safe for all children, but especially so for those children who suffer from dermatitis, bronchial asthma and other allergy related conditions.
Kingsdown also provide adequate and healthy support for contours as well as for weight distribution, which results in quality management and reduction of sagging edges which is a regular occurrence with cheaper mattresses. Unlike a standard pocket spring mattress, Kingsdown matresses use high temper steel to make their coils, this has the effect of providing more resistance against shocks and jerks.
The Latest mattress introduced by The Kingsdown Matress Company is the Body System – this particular mattress system provides complete support for body, so that the head, ankles, hips, and spine remain in comfortable, straight position while you sleep on this mattress.
As per the Kingsdown mattress reviews that are easily found on the Internet, consumers have rated this mattress as one of the best natural sleep machines of 21st century – this acclamation is not a mere coincidence; it is the result of extensive R&D process that took place before making the mattress ready for market. The best way for you to test this out, is to visit your local store and write you own Kingsdown Mattress review based on the experience you have trying it out.
When it comes to buying a new mattress from Kingsdown, even the selection process is semi-automated for you – the selection process is run by an efficient computerized system and a machine called the Dormo Diagnostic Sleep Machine. After taking few readings of the customer, the Dormo Machine can prescribe the right Kingsdown product that should be the best option for you.
Ohhhh…….almost forgot, my original question “Are kingsdown mattresses worth the money?” – you bet they are.
The King Koil mattress brand has been with us for well over 100 years, and my first assumption is always that a company with so much history must be doing lots of things right for them to have survived so long. Additionally, you might have read a number of King Koil mattress reviews that mention the fact that a large number of 5-star hotels choose mattresses from King Koil for their bedrooms.
Over the years, King Koil has strived hard to ensure that their advances in technology have always resulted in a new mattress range that offers the customer a whole lot more than its predecessor. The company claim that they offer many high end features in their mattresses, but they claim to do that without making their customers spend money unnecessarily. They also claim to be the only mattress company to have its products endorsed by the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research (FCER), although we have been unable to verify this at the time of writing.
Zoned coil spring system – King Koil Mattresses zoned coil spring system is designed to offer additional support to the areas of the body where it is most needed. The King Koil Spine Support mattress for example has a 3 zone system, while the King Koil Perfect Contour mattress has 5 zones of coils. Each coil zone is strategically placed to provide maximum support in the areas that receive the most pressure.
High quality materials – Each King Koil mattress is made from top quality materials to ensure that the mattresses have a long useful life. Their zoned coil spring systems are encased in premium foam to help prevent sagging and add stability and durability to the mattress sides.
It’s difficult to find many bad King Koil mattress reviews; in fact I could only find a handful when I was writing this. The main complaint centered on an exacerbated back problem that the customer attributed to their King Koil mattress. You always need to bare in mind that, generally speaking, consumers who have a positive experience with a product DON’T write reviews for that product, so to find so few negative reviews is quite comforting.
The King Koil Mattress Company has a long pedigree of selling mattresses in the United States, and you don’t survive for as long as they have if your products are shoddy. Their mattresses are suitable for all ages, from their Kool Kids range, right through to their Luxury Escapes mattress. With prices in the $600 to $3,000 range, it’s unsurprising that that feature so highly in many King Koil mattress reviews.
If you have your own review of a King Koil mattress, let us know what you think and we’ll do our best to give you your very own page.
The easiest way to find the latest King Koil mattress prices is to search the Internet on some of the hundreds of websites that are selling King Koil mattresses. Generally speaking you will find that your local mattress discounter won’t be able to match these prices, but it will give you a good starting point, and you will be able to use it when you are negotiating a final price.
The King Koil Spine Support mattress is the most popular model in their range, so is probably the model that you are most likely to be able to negotiate a discount on. Whatever discount you might get offered however, should only be considered if you feel the Spine Support mattress is the right mattress for you – never choose a mattress based solely on the deal you get offered!
The prices of King Koil mattresses can vary widely, and the Spine Support model is no different because of the myriad of different trims that are available. The cheapest I can find at the moment is in the region of $500, which is for a Bayshore queen mattress. That price point increases to as much as $1,200 for the King Koil Jemma queen mattress.
As I said previously, you will almost certainly find the best King Koil mattress prices if you search the Internet, but I would never advice anyone to choose their new King Koil mattress that way. To find a mattress that suits both you and your partner, it is absolutely essential that you try out each mattress before you decide to consider it.
If it’s a King Koil Spine Support mattress you have set your heart on, go to your local mattress store and spend some time lying on the mattress. You should aim to spend at least 15 to 20 minutes on each mattress you try, and don’t just lay still, because that’s not what will happen when you take it home.
Move around a little, try lying on your back and both sides, and pay particular attention to how it feels when your partner moves around. If you feel their movements easily, there is a possibility that any movement they make while they’re asleep will disturb your sleep.
When you’ve chosen the exact model of mattress you want, that’s the time to go back to the Internet and find the best King Koil mattress prices that you can get. And never forget that any mattress you buy will probably have to last you for at least 8 to 10 years so make your decision wisely. The King Koil Spine Support mattress is a good mid-range model and should serve you well.
This Sealy mattress reviews page will give you an overview of what the Sealy Mattress Company does, and also provide links to specific Sealy products such as the Sealy Posturepedic mattress, the Sealy Trueform, and their latest model the Sealy Springfree mattress. In time we will review other models as well, but in the meantime, we will concentrate on the most popular mattress models they make.
Sealy started making mattresses back in 1881 in Sealy, Texas. The original business started producing cotton filed mattresses to order, and grew quickly as the demand for quality mattresses took off. Fifteen years after it began, the company was sold, along with its many patents, to another Texas company that retained the Sealy name. Soon after the sale, an ad executive working for the company coined the slogan “sleeping on a Sealy is like sleeping on a cloud” – and with that one short sentence, a national phenomenon was born.
Quality Still Counts…
Sealy has been the market leader in the US for more than three decades, and while much of this success is undoubtedly down to great marketing, you don’t stay on top for more than thirty years unless your product lives up to the hype.
The products quality comes as a result of the company’s commitment to research & development, and also in its use of top quality materials and its innovative manufacturing techniques. The company’s Posturepedic mattress for example was designed and developed in conjunction with some of the world’s leading orthopaedic doctors to ensure that it provides optimum levels of back support for anyone who sleeps on it.
When it comes to materials used, Sealy claim they use only the best materials available – but you would expect them to say that wouldn’t you? However, their claims do seem to hold up when you examine their products closely. This is illustrated best by the company’s patented UniCased Edge design which ensures that the mattress keeps its shape even when it gets used regularly over long periods of time.
If you search online you will find negative reviews written about virtually all the leading brands of mattress. I’ve got to be honest with you, if you search for Sealy mattress reviews, you will find more negative reviews than you will for most other brands – there are however some very good reasons for this. If you remember, I told you that Sealy had been the leading brand in the US for more than thirty year, so given the millions of mattresses they have sold over the years; they are bound to have their fair share of disgruntled customers.
The industry magazine reviews of Sealy mattresses are generally very complimentary about the quality and durability of the Sealy mattress range. The negative online consumer reviews generally mention mattress sag as the main bone of contention, but again that is very similar to other mattresses.
