Your iComfort Questions ~ Answered

Disclosure: I am a part of the Serta blogger program to help educate people on their iComfort products and received a complimentary mattress to facilitate firsthand reviews. All opinions on the iComfort are 100% honest, and my own!
I have been blogging about our fabulous Serta iComfort mattress for over 2 1/2 years now. As a result, the other day I was looking at my Google Analytics and realized there there were a lot of iComfort questions that landed on my blog. Some of these questions I have addressed, but others I haven’t, so I wanted to do a post on iComfort FAQs and answers to questions people want to know about this mattress.
This post is based on my own personal experience sleeping on our iComfort Prodigy mattress as well as answers that can be found on the Serta Ask the Experts FAQs page.
If you have any other questions not mentioned in this blog, please feel free to leave a comment or email me (Jennifer)! Here were the top questions:
Does the iComfort bed sleep hot?
I have talked about this topic a lot, and addressed it in this recent video as well. In my opinion, our iComfort mattress does not sleep hot, at all. My husband is a very warm sleeper and he has had no problems sleeping hot on our iComfort. Their Cool Action Memory Foam is designed to let the memory foam breathe, so heat does not get trapped.
Is there an iComfort Break In Period?
With our iComfort, there was no break in period. It was as comfortable the first night as it still is 2 1/2 years later. Of course, it does take a little time to get used to sleeping on a new type of mattress, but we only noticed beneficial differences right out of the gate.
Do you have to flip the iComfort mattress?
No, it is a single sided mattress.
Can you wash the iComfort mattress cover?
No, the cover is not meant to be removed and washed. From night one, you should use a mattress protector to protect your mattress.

Split King vs. King for Serta Adjustable Base?
Our king base is split, our mattress is not. There is also the option with the king base to purchase 2 Twin XL mattresses to push together on separate bases. With one mattress, you have to use the bases together (either both elevated or not) at the same time. With separate twin mattresses, you are able to operate each base and mattresses individually.
In my opinion, I prefer the king mattress (one king mattress.) My husband and I use the base together. We are both either reading and watching TV at the same time with it elevated or we are sleeping at the same time. If you think you would want to use the base/beds separately at different times (i.e. one person would be reading elevated while the other is sleeping) the 2 Twin XL might be a good option. You just have to ask yourself how you see yourself using the adjustable base.
Can you attach a headboard with the iComfort Adjustable Base?
Yes, there are headboard brackets made specific for each iComfort model. We use a headboard with our iComfort Adjustable Base.
Can you use a bedskirt with the iComfort Adjustable Base?
You can, but the bed skirt can and will move when you adjust the base, so it will have to be readjusted. We don’t use a bedskirt with our adjustable base. If we decided to in the future, I would probably opt to get one custom fit, as it is not a standard type of mattress base.
Is iComfort worth it?
I love this question, because I understand it. An iComfort mattress is an investment, because it is a really high quality mattress. But when you think about how long you can sleep on a mattress if you take care of it (sometimes up to 10+ years), and look at how much TIME you spend IN your bed (like a third of your life!), then YES, it is absolutely worth it! I didn’t pay for our mattress, which is something I am very grateful for, but now that I have the experience sleeping on Serta’s iComfort memory foam, if we were in the position to have to purchase a new bed in the future, I would definitely save my money and would purchase this bed over again, because YES, it is sooooooo worth it.
Again, please feel free to email me or comment with additional questions!
