The Cocoon Chill was designed to keep sleepers comfortable and cool all night long. It accomplishes this with innovative design and materials. This premium three-layer mattress is built in the United States.
Perfect Fit Memory Foam
The top layer of the Cocoon Chill mattress is its perfect fit memory foam layer. As with all high-quality memory foam, it adapts to the size and position of sleepers throughout the night. This foam is also certified by CertiPUR-US, meaning that it is made without ozone depleters, formaldehyde, PBDEs, phthalates, and other harmful chemicals.
Personalized Comfort (Cocoon Chill only)
The personalized comfort layer allows sleepers to customize the degree of comfort they want. The mattress is available in medium-soft and extra firm. For sleepers who prefer to sleep “in” bed, cocooned and enveloped by the mattress, medium-soft is the best choice. If you prefer to feel like you’re sleeping “on” the bed, however, extra firm is the way to go.
Active Support Technology Coil Layer (Cocoon Chill Hybrid only)
This layer is made up of fabric-encased coils. The casing reduces motion transfer that one might normally feel with coils, as well as does away with squeaking. Additionally, the coils allow for even great airflow, creating a cool and comfortable sleep environment. A reinforced steel perimeter means this mattress has exceptional edge support.
Sealy has engineered support layers to ensure the bed is resilient and durable. The company uses heavy foam that bounces back after each use. This base support system varies slightly depending on whether you have chosen medium-soft or extra firm. For medium-soft, Flexible Essential Support Foam is used in construction. For extra firm, on the other hand, Reinforced Essential Support Foam is used in the base layer.
Cocoon by Sealy’s Chill mattress and Chill Hybrid mattress manage to keep sleepers cool throughout the night thanks to cooling technology in their stretch-knit mattress cover. This cover includes “Phase Change Material” that absorbs body heat and dissipates it to keep sleepers cool. The material is cool to the touch and does a nice job of regulating temperatures all night long.
If the mattress cover needs to be cleaned, spot-cleaning is recommended with water and gentle detergent.
Firmness, Feel & Support
As mentioned before, the Cocoon Chill is available in two firmness levels. The medium-soft firmness option is designed for multi-positioned sleepers, while the extra firm is ideal for back sleepers. Side sleepers can also use both mattresses, but petite individuals likely won’t get enough support if they sleep on their sides. Along with sleeping styles, this mattress is best for people who have trouble staying cool at night.
The mattress has an average degree of sinkage. The medium-soft mattress sinks by as much as 2 inches and the firm mattress sinks by approximately 1 inch when lying on the stomach or back. Side sleepers experience a greater degree of sinkage, with the medium-soft mattress sinking 2 inches and the extra firm mattress sinking 3 inches. Both mattresses have additional sinkage on the edges. Expect sinkage of 4-5 inches on the sides.
While lying on the side of the bed can feel a bit precarious due to the sinkage, the middle of the bed is quite comfortable. The medium-soft mattress wraps sleepers up, while the extra-firm mattress has lots of padding that keeps sleepers comfortable.
Like many other memory foam mattresses, the motion transfer is a cause for concern. While the motion transfer is considerably mild on the medium-soft mattress, it can be disruptive on the extra-firm mattress. Couples that share a bed should consider this before purchasing the Cocoon by Sealy.
As for the Chill Hybrid, this mattress is available only in one firmness level: medium. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the firmest, the Chill Hybrid would score about a 6. Like the Chill, it’s designed to keep you cool at night. In fact, the Hybrid does even better than the Chill in this regard thanks to the breathable coil layer that promotes greater airflow. The edge support in this mattress is also better than the original Chill, since it has reinforced titanium steel coils. Individual fabric encasing of the coils does a good job of minimizing motion transfer.

With two mattresses to choose from, superior cooling technology, and top-notch customer support, Cocoon by Sealy is an excellent option for those who want a high-quality mattress at an affordable price. The price is significantly lower than many competitors thanks to frequent sales, and the product delivers on many of its promises, including the cooling technology and a comfortable night’s sleep.
