How many models come in the Serta iComfort Memory Foam Collection?

There are five models available in the iComfort collection:

  • iComfort LE
  • iComfort CF1000
  • iComfort CF2000
  • iComfort CF3000
  • iComfort CF4000

The first three models (LE, CF1000, and CF2000) are only available in one firmness option, while the latter two (CF3000 and CF4000) are available in three firmness options (medium/firm, plush, and ultra plush). From the LE (base model) to the CF4000 (the most luxurious model), the price difference is about $1500 for a Queen-size mattress.

Who Makes Serta iComfort Mattresses?

Serta iComfort mattresses are made by Serta, a company based in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. The company was founded in 1931 when 13 independent mattress manufacturers licensed the name. The iComfort mattress comes in both memory foam and hybrid versions.

If you’re interested in purchasing the iComfort with the cooling upgrade, the CF2000 typically sits in the middle ground between the CF1000 and CF3000.

What Types Of Beds/Frames Do They Work With?

According to a Serta sales representative, all iComfort memory foam mattresses will work with any standard bed frame. They do advise that owners use a box spring or a solid foundation as it helps with the stability of the mattress.

One thing to note that if an old foundation somehow manages to damage the mattress, it will void the warranty. There are more details on the warranty available further down the post.

Model Breakdowns

Model LE

  • Basic Construction: The iComfort LE model contains a layer of EverCool® Fuze Gel Foam and a layer of EverCool® Fuze Gel Memory Foam. While both materials are designed to promote cooling, the memory foam material provides the pressure relief that many sleepers are looking for. The mattress is wrapped in the Cold Touch™ cover, which is a knit cover that provides a cool-to-the-touch feeling. The mattress is approximately 10” in height.
  • Firmness: The LE is only available in a plush firmness level.
  • Price: For the mattress only, prices start at $1099.00 for a Queen and go up to $1399.00 for a California King.
  • What sleeper is it best suited for: Because this mattress is only available in a plush option, it is probably a good fit for lightweight and side sleepers. A softer mattress, like this one, can provide good pressure relief and can let people sink in a bit more during the night.

Model CF1000

  • Basic Construction: Similar to the LE model, the CF1000 has a layer of EverCool® Fuze Gel Memory Foam to keep you cool at night while also providing pressure relief. Additionally, this model includes a layer of Carbon Fiber Memory Foam that also has some cooling features and provides back and neck support. The mattress is approximately 10” in height.
  • Firmness: The CF1000 Model is only available in a medium firmness level.
  • Price: For the mattress only, prices start at $909.00 for a Twin and go up to $1899.00 for a California King.
  • What sleeper is it best suited for: The combination of Carbon Fiber Memory Foam and EverCool® Fuze Gel Memory Foam makes this mattress a good fit for hot sleepers. Additionally, the pressure relief and support provided by the combination of memory foams likely makes this a good option for back sleepers (several customers have reported having little to no back pain while using this mattress).

Model CF2000

  • Basic Construction: The CF2000 comes with a cooling upgrade, so it is constructed with a mix of the Carbon Fiber Memory Foam that’s used in the CF1000 model and Gel Active® Max Foam, which is an open celled memory foam that helps with airflow and mattress breathability. The mattress is approximately 11.5” in height.
  • Firmness: The CF2000 model is only available in a firm option.
  • Price: For the mattress only, prices start at $1399.00 for a Twin XL and go up to $2299.00 for a California King.
  • What sleeper is it best suited for: This is one of the firmer mattresses in the iComfort line, making it a better option for heavyweight sleepers. Additionally, back and stomach sleepers should enjoy this mattress because of the support that firm mattresses provide. Customers have also reported that this mattress has little motion transfer, making it an excellent mattress for couples. Of course, like all other iComfort models, this is a great option for those who sleep hot at night.

Model CF3000

  • Basic Construction: The CF3000 comes with the max cooling upgrade, meaning that, in addition to the Carbon Fiber Memory Foam found in most of the other mattresses, it includes additional cooling features, such as the UltraCold™ System and the Max Cold™ Cover. The UltraCold™ System is designed to absorb heat and then channel it away from the body. If you purchase the ultra plush option, your mattress will also contain EverCool® Fuze Gel Memory Foam and EverCool® Supreme Memory Foam for added pressure relief.
  • Firmness: The CF3000 comes in three firmness options, medium, plush, and ultra plush, so you have the flexibility to select the mattress that best fits your preferences.
  • Price: For the mattress only, prices start at $1699.00 for a Twin XL and go up to $2599.00 for a California King.
  • What sleeper is it best suited for?: Each mattress firmness option is better for different types of sleepers. For example, the plush and ultra plush options should be better for side sleepers and lightweight sleepers, while the medium firmness option should be better for back sleepers. The max cooling upgrade makes this a particularly great option for hot sleepers.

Model CF4000

  • Basic Construction: In addition to the layers that are found in the CF3000, the CF4000 contains Air Support™ Foam, which is designed to help relieve bodily aches and pains. The plush model also contains EverCool® Supreme Memory Foam. The mattress is approximately 13.5” in height.
  • Firmness: The CF4000 comes in three firmness options, firm, plush, and ultra plush, so you have the flexibility to select the comfort level that works best for you.
  • Price: For the mattress only, prices start at $2199.00 for a Twin XL and go up to $3299.00 for a California King.
  • What sleeper is it best suited for?: With the max cooling and pressure relief upgrade that this mattress comes with, it is a great option for those looking for a luxury mattress. The addition of the Air Support™ Foam should make it good for those looking for additional pain relief, as well.

Who might choose a Serta iComfort Memory Foam bed?

  • People who run hot while they sleep. Serta iComfort is all about highlighting their cooling technology, which utilizes materials like gel and carbon fiber memory foam, to help the mattresses feel cool to the touch on the surface and stay cool all night.
  • People who are often disturbed by a partner moving around at night. A common piece of praise for the iComfort Memory Foam line is that it is great for motion isolation and that people didn’t have issues feeling their partners moving around at night.

Who might not choose a Serta iComfort Memory Foam bed?

  • People who have limited mobility, as getting in and out of the bed may be difficult. Memory foam contours to your body, but it can also feel like quicksand in that your body can sink deeply into it (depending on the foam layer). While it is pressure-relieving, it doesn’t have the “bounce” that a spring mattress has that can help you get out of bed.
  • People who prefer a “bouncy” mattress with springs. Memory foam mattresses are designed to absorb movement, meaning they have very little “bounce.” This also means memory foam mattresses can take a while to spring back into their natural shape after someone has slept on them.
  • People on a limited budget. The prices for a Queen size bed start at $1099.00, which may put them out of budget for anyone hoping to stay under $1,000.

Common Praise

  • Great cooling technology. Reviewers who run hot say that the cooling technology actually works.
  • Excellent back and joint support. Reviewers say that their back pain has improved while using iComfort mattresses.
  • Motion isolation. Purchasers report that they are no longer disturbed by a partner moving around during the night.

Common Complaints

  • Odor. Several reviewers have complained of the new mattress smell that comes with iComfort mattresses (typically known as “off-gassing”).
  • Thicker mattresses require deep pocket sheets. Some customers have noted that they need to use deep pocket sheets with the CF3000 and CF4000 because the mattress is so thick. If you don’t already have a set, you will likely need to invest in some if you purchase one of these models.
