The report below on Vera Wang mattresses (made by Serta) is based on at least 100 actual consumer reviews collected from diverse, credible sources.
|Owner satisfaction||d||Based on a sample size of over 90 owners, Vera Wang innerspring-based mattresses have 62% owner satisfaction. This rating is similar to most other innerspring bed brands. Based on a sample size of 10 owners, Vera Wang latex-based mattresses have 35% owner satisfaction.|
|Durability / longevity||d||The main cause of owner dissatisfaction for both types of Vera Wang mattresses (innerspring and latex) is premature sagging, which is a loss of support that develops within three years and tends to make the beds uncomfortable.|
|Price||d+||The beds usually have a price tag between $1300-$3200. This is a higher-than-average price range. At least one-third of owner reviews report that the benefits received from the mattress do not live up to the price, i.e., the value is questionable or poor.|
|Less pain||c-||The mattresses may offer good pain relief initially. But because of sagging and loss of supportiveness, lessened pain is not a lasting strength generally. (See mattresses and pain relief for further analysis.)|
|Motion isolation||a-||Both Vera Wang innerspring and latex models tend to keep movement at least somewhat localized.|
|No initial odor / off gassing||c+||About 5% of owners report a distinct odor coming from their mattress when it is new.|
|No sleeping hot||b-||Less than 2% of consumers report that their bed is a heat trap.|
|Good for sex||c||Sagging of the mattress may cause love making to be uncomfortable and difficult to perform. (See mattresses and sex for additional analysis).|
|No noise||A||There are virtually no complaints about the mattress making noise.|
|No turning / flipping||d+||Consumers report the need to turn and or flip their mattress more than occasionally to maintain supportiveness and avoid excessive sagging / body impressions.|
|Lightweight||d||Both innerspring and latex Vera Wang models weigh more than the average bed and can be hard to move / transport, especially for one person.|
|Warranty||C||Vera Wang innerspring beds have 10-year warranty, and latex models have a 30-year warranty. Owners often complain that the warranty is insufficient to deal with sagging problems. (See mattress warranties: what you should know.)|
|Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating||A+||Vera Wang beds are made by Serta. Serta currently has an accredited "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Ratings are based on over 100 Serta Vera Wang consumer reviews and experiences collected from diverse, credible sources.
