TRINITY, N.C., July 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sealy® integrates the comfort of latex foam with the technology of OptiCool® in the launch of their new gel latex line for Optimum™ by Sealy Posturepedic®.

"We have had tremendous success with our Optimum™ gel memory foam line since it launched last year, so we are extending the brand into a new line of offerings that continue to deliver the cooling power of OptiCool® with a unique, more responsive feel that is characteristic of latex foam," said Jodi Allen, chief marketing officer for Sealy.  "This new specialty line rounds out our existing Optimum™ offering, giving consumers the option to choose a mattress that provides the feeling and support that best fits their lifestyle."

The Optimum™ latex line is a four bed collection that features new OptiCool® gel latex foam infused with OUTLAST® technology, which is designed to promote an optimum temperature range for deep, relaxing, restorative sleep. OUTLAST® technology is used in high performance outdoor gear, undergarments, and even footwear for its excellent temperature regulation. Exclusively available to the Optimum™, OptiCool® gel latex foam is proven to be more effective at removing excess heat than standard latex foam alone.

In addition to its cooling properties, the new Optimum™ latex line offers a completely different feel to consumers than traditional memory foam or innerspring mattresses. While users will experience an initial conforming feeling at the surface, the design offers a more responsive feel to prevent the "sinking sensation" often associated with traditional memory foam mattresses. The result is a consistent foam-like feeling across the entire sleeping surface.

On the exterior of every Optimum™ latex mattress, you will find ultra-soft fabric and contemporary styling that signals an experience unlike any other from the very first touch.  In addition, Sealy will be supporting the launch with a unique in-store retail display and top-of-bed program that compliments the current Optimum™ gel memory foam line.

"We are excited to continue our growth in the specialty segment with the introduction of this unique latex offering under the Optimum™ brand," Allen added.

The Optimum™ gel latex line will start at $1699 MSRP and will be on display in the Sealy showroom at Las Vegas Market, July 29August 2. To schedule showing, contact Katie Feltz at 312-217-0373 or by email:
