Simmons Beautyrest Mattress Reviews – 3 Best Buys For 2020

When I went looking for Simmons Beautyrest mattresses I was initially overwhelmed by the number of options.

Because I found that each of the BeautySleep®, Silver®, Platinum®, and Black® ranges had multiple named models that often had several sub-mattresses of differing firmnesses.

But after days and days of research and analysis, my top 3 Simmons Beautyrest mattress reviews below provide a detailed breakdown of what I personally think are the best Simmons Beautyrest mattresses that you can buy online at the time of writing in 2020.

And I’ve also snuck in a comparison table and a buying guide later on in the article too.

But if you decide that none of them are the right choice for you, then be sure to check out my own personal list of the best mattresses that you can buy online in my opinion for some suitable alternatives.

Otherwise, let’s jump into the reviews below.

And if you’ve already bought and slept on any of the following mattresses then please do let me know of your experiences in the comments section at the end of this post. 🙂

1: Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress

To summarise, I think that the Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress is best suited to front, back, and combo sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range who are looking to sleep cool – of which couples should be well suited to as well.

However, I feel that side sleepers will probably find this mattress to be too firm on their shoulders, and you should either consider the Plush Pillow Top version of the Natasha™ or check out my list of the top mattresses for side sleepers for some softer alternatives.

Otherwise, have a look at my Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress review below for more details.

Design Analysis

The Natasha™ Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress is a 16 inch hybrid mattress that combines 5 layers of foam and fiber with a spring core that’s comprised of 13.5 gauge coils to provide a luxurious balance between comfort and support whilst also helping you to stay cool.

Performance Analysis

To summarise, I think that the Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Luxury Firm Pillow Top 16 inch mattress could be well suited for you if you’re a front or back sleeper in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs weight range and you’re looking to sleep cool in a mattress that’s responsive enough to move around in without getting bogged down in the materials.

1) Firmness

I would say that this is a medium-firm mattress that feels more like a medium mattress due to the softer pillow top.

In other words, I would give this mattress a 5/10 firmness rating where 10 is extra firm and 1 is extra soft.

This means that although the pillow top can take away some of the pressure if you sleep on your side, I think that this mattress will be best suited to front and back sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight category.

2) Support

The 13.5 gauge coils means that this mattress provides good support overall for your spine and should be able to handle individual body weights up to at least 250 lbs without too much sinkage in my opinion.

3) Pressure Relief

This mattress should provide good comfort overall because the pillow top and memory foam combine to provide individualised pressure relief by moulding to your exact body shape better than a traditional innerspring mattress with a thin upholstered top layer might.

4) Moving Around

If you’re a combo sleeper in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs weight range then I think that you’ll be able to switch positions easily during the night because the Comfort Response Latex comfort layer and coiled support core combine to increase surface tension and guard against sinkage better than most pure foam mattresses typically would.

5) Maximum Weight Capacity

I don’t know what the exact weight limit for this mattress is.

But having reviewed many hybrid mattresses that are significantly thinner than this 16 inch mattress, I estimate that it should be able to hold at least 500 lbs.

But if the maximum weight capacity is a pre-purchase concern for you then I’d certainly contact either the manufacturer or the retailer for further clarification.

6) Couples

If you sleep as a couple then this is a good mattress because the coils are designed to limit motion transfer so that you won’t feel each other shuffling around during the night.

7) Edge Support

If you’re tired of getting that sinking feeling when you get too close to the edge of your current mattress then you’ll be pleased to hear that the edges of the Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress has been specifically reinforced with Ventilated Aircool foam to provide better support in conjunction with the pocket coil support core.

8) Allergies

I would rate this mattress as being ‘fair’ in terms of guarding against allergies because whilst the CertiPUR-US® certified foam comfort layers may help to block ambient allergens and limit the chance of you experiencing skin irritation, the mattress isn’t specifically designed to be hypoallergenic as far as I can tell, and dust mites and pollen may actually get trapped in the more spacious coil support core where they may cause a reaction when you lie down.

9) Temperature Regulation

I personally think that this is a pretty good mattress if you tend to sleep hot because the foam comfort layers have been crafted specifically to dissipate heat and encourage airflow to keep you cool.

10) Keeping You Dry

I don’t think that this mattress comes with any specific moisture wicking properties, so I would definitely invest in a high quality bamboo deep pocket fitted sheet set because bamboo bed sheets are great at absorbing moisture and allowing it to evaporate quickly to help keep you dry.

11) Odour

You may experience an ‘off gassing’ smell for a few days until the particles associated with this ‘new’ smell dissipate – keep your room well ventilated in the meantime.

12) Pain

This could be a good mattress for you if you’re a front or back sleeper in the 130 lbs range and you’re trying to sleep around orthopedic pains because the softer pillow top can provide good pressure relief on your joints whilst the spring core can support your spine to guard against back ache.

Things get a bit more uncertain if you’re a side sleeper though because the underlying firmness of the mattress may overpower the initial soft feeling of the pillow top – depending on your body weight – possibly resulting in discomfort in your shoulders and maybe hips (which can also transfer into back pain sometimes too).

Comfort Analysis

To summarise, I think that the Natasha™ Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress is best suited to front, back, and combo sleepers in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs range – as well as couples.

Side sleepers should proceed with caution and should check out some of the best mattresses for side sleepers as potential alternatives.

Front Sleepers

If you’re a front sleeper in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs weight range then I think that you’ll find the support and pressure relief sufficient to remain comfortable.

Back Sleepers

Similarly, I think that the firmness and support combine to make this a comfortable mattress for you if you’re a back sleeper in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs weight range.

Side Sleepers

Side sleepers need to be careful.

Because whilst the mattress may initially feel soft when you first lie on it, the mattress is actually quite firm underneath so after a while you may find that your shoulders become uncomfortable.

This is an even bigger risk if you weigh less than 130 lbs because you’ll naturally tend to lie ‘on’ the materials – which increases firmness and can cause compression forces to build up in your shoulder joints because you’re not sinking far enough into the materials.

So if you’re a side sleeper, be sure to check out some of the softer selections in my list of the best mattresses for side sleepers.

Combo Sleepers

This is a good mattress for you if you’re a combo sleeper in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range because the Comfort Response Latex foam and spring support core help to guard against sinkage and make moving around and sitting up in the mattress easier when compared to a pure foam bed.

Pros

  • Foams are specifically designed to be cooling and promote air flow to regulate your temperature.
  • The edge of the mattress is specifically reinforced with foam to guard against sinkage.
  • 5 layers of foam to provide individualised comfort and pressure relief.
  • Pocket coils provide good support for your back whilst minimising motion transfer to minimise the feelings of your bed partner moving around.
  • Comfort Response Latex foam makes it easier to move around in the mattress as you change positions.
  • 16 inches thick to provide better support for heavier weighted sleepers.

Cons

  • Probably too firm for lighter weighted side sleepers.

Who Should Buy This Mattress?

  • Front, back, and combo sleepers in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs weight range.

Who Should Avoid This Mattress?

  • Side sleepers may find this mattress to be too firm – especially if you weigh less than 130 lbs.

2: Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Plush Pillow Top Mattress

To summarise, I personally think that the 16 inch Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Plush Pillow Top hybrid mattress is best suited to side sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range because of its softer firmness and more forgiving support layer due to the 14.75 gauge springs that have more give to them than lower gauge springs.

However, it’s my personal opinion that this greater sinkage makes this mattress less suitable for front sleepers over 200 lbs and combo sleepers over 130 lbs due to the greater potential for back ache and the decreased mobility for each respective position.

Read my full Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Plush Pillow Top mattress review below for a more detailed breakdown.

Design Analysis

The Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Plush Pillow Top is 16 inch thick hybrid mattress that comprises of 5 foam layers in conjunction with a coiled support core that consists of 14.75 gauge springs.

Performance Analysis

To summarise, I think that the Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Plush Pillow Top mattress is a good option if you’re a side sleeper in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range and looking to sleep cool – couples of which should be well suited to also.

Here’s a more detailed analysis of the key performance areas of this mattress.

1) Firmness

I think that this mattress has a medium-soft firmness that actually feels more on the soft side when you initially lie on it due to the plush pillow top.

This means that the mattress is likely going to be better for you if you’re a side sleeper in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs weight range but you should take care if you’re a front sleeper because your hips may sink too far into the mattress and lead to back ache.

2) Support

The coiled support core is made up of 14.75 gauge springs.

This means that you’ll probably sink more into the mattress if you’re over 200 lbs because springs that are 14 gauge and above tend to be biased towards having more ‘give’ – whilst springs under 13 gauge are generally stiffer and contribute to a mattress with a firmer feel.

3) Pressure Relief

The plush pillow top and adaptive memory foam should provide excellent pressure relief by contouring to your exact body shape to keep your shoulders, hips, back, and legs comfortable.

4) Moving Around

Although the Comfort Response Latex foam can help you if you’re a combo sleeper, I think that if you weigh more than 200 lbs then moving around in this mattress could be quite laborious because of the softer firmness and the 14.75 gauge coils that have more give to them than lower gauge coils.

5) Maximum Weight Capacity

I don’t know what the maximum weight capacity is but if forced for an answer, I would guess that it’s somewhere in the region of 500 lbs or slightly more based on my experience of reviewing hybrid mattresses with a similar construction.

6) Couples

The foam and springs should provide pretty good motion isolation if you sleep as a couple to stop you waking each other up as you move around during the night.

7) Edge Support

This mattress has good edge support because it comes with reinforced foam edges to complement the support coils.

8) Allergies

Again, this mattress is a bit of a coin flip if you have allergies because the foam might be good for limiting skin irritation and blocking ambient allergens but the coil support core may harbour dust.

Check out my list of the best hypoallergenic mattresses for some better options if you have allergies.

9) Temperature Regulation

If you tend to sleep hot then this mattress could be a good option for you because the foams are designed to improve ventilation, breathability, and to dissipate heat to help regulate your temperature.

10) Keeping You Dry

Whilst staying dry is likely to be a secondary effect of the mattress’ cooling properties, I would still go ahead and invest in a good set of either mulberry silk bed sheets or bamboo sheets to help wick away moisture.

11) Odour

This mattress may smell ‘new’ for a short time after getting it – keep your room well ventilated until this passes.

12) Pain

I think that the pressure relieving qualities of this mattress in conjunction with the support core could do a good job of managing and even preventing pain if you’re a side sleeper, but I think that heavy weighted front sleepers over 200 lbs may experience discomfort due the mattress having too much give and thus causing your hips to drop too far into the mattress which can potentially cause back ache.

Comfort Analysis

To summarise, I think that the Beautyrest Black Natasha™ Plush Pillow Top mattress is best for side sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs range, whilst front sleepers over 200 lbs and combo sleepers over 130 lbs may need to avoid this mattress because of the potential for deeper sinkage.

See below for a full sleeping position and weight analysis.

Front Sleepers

Front sleepers over 200 lbs need to take the most care in my opinion because you may find that you sink too far into this mattress which could put you at risk of back ache.

Back Sleepers

If you’re a back sleeper in the 130 lbs to 200 lbs range then you should find the support sufficient to keep your spine correctly aligned.

Above 200 lbs and things start to get a bit dicey in my view due to the softer firmness and the 14.75 gauge springs potentially contributing to greater sinkage.

Side Sleepers

If you’re a side sleeper between 130 lbs and 200 lbs then I think that this is a good mattress for you because you’ll be able to sink far enough into the materials to take away the pressure on your shoulders.

Combo Sleepers

Unless you’re under 130 lbs, I don’t think that this is the best mattress for you if you switch positions often during the night because the extra give of the mattress may make it too hard to move around in without getting bogged down in the materials.

Pros

  • A good mattress for side sleepers due to the softer feel and memory foam that can take pressure away from your joints for greater comfort.
  • The foam is designed to promote breathability and airflow whilst dissipating heat to help keep you cool.
  • Better edge support thanks to the specially designed foam that reinforces the edges.

Cons

  • Sleepers over 200 lbs and front sleepers in general may find that this mattress has too much give to it because of the softer firmness and 14.75 gauge support springs.

Who Should Buy This Mattress?

  • Side sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs range.

Who Should Avoid This Mattress?

  • Front sleepers over 200 lbs may be at risk of back ache due to the greater sinkage that may throw your hips out of alignment.
  • Combo sleepers over 130 lbs may find this mattress too difficult to move around in easily.

3: Beautyrest Silver™ Hybrid Firm 3000

To summarise, I personally think that the Beautyrest Silver™ Hybrid Firm 3000 is best suited to front and back sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range who are looking to sleep cool.

But I think that side sleepers of all weights will find this mattress to be too firm on their shoulders.

See my Beautyrest Silver Hybrid Firm 3000 mattress review below for more details.

Or have a look at my list of the best mattresses that you can buy online for some alternatives if you’ve not yet found your ideal mattress.

Design Analysis

The Beautyrest Silver™ Hybrid Firm 3000 mattress is 13.5 inches thick and comprises of 3 layers of memory foam on top of a coiled support core that contains springs with a 13.75 gauge for slightly firmer support.

Performance Analysis

To summarise, I think that this mattress is best suited to front and back sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range who are looking to sleep cool and potentially guard against back pain – with similarly matched couples being well suited to this mattress too.

Check out the details below.

1) Firmness

I personally think that this is a medium-firm mattress that has a bias more towards ‘firm’ due to the absence of a pillow top.

This makes it better for front and back sleepers because it can help to keep your hips correctly aligned whilst side sleepers may find the mattress too firm on their shoulders.

2) Support

The pocket coils are 13.75 gauge which contributes to the medium-firm feel and should individually adapt to your exact body shape to provide excellent support for your spine when sleeping on your front or back.

3) Pressure Relief

Although this is a firmer mattress, the 3 layers of memory foam should keep you comfortable when you’re on your front or back by moulding to your exact body shape to provide customised pressure relief.

4) Moving Around

If you’re a combo sleeper that tends to move around a lot during the night then this should be a good mattress for you if you weight between 130 lbs and 200 lbs because of the greater surface tension, Dynamic Response™ memory foam, 13.75 gauge coils, and relatively thinner thickness.

5) Maximum Weight Capacity

I don’t know the maximum weight capacity for this mattress, but with it being a slightly thinner mattress, my guess would be that it’s in the 450 lbs – 500 lbs weight range but I could be wrong.

6) Couples

If you both sleep on your front or back and are similar weights then you should be fine with this mattress because the support coils are designed to limit motion transfer.

7) Edge Support

This mattress has good edge support because it comes with specifically reinforced foam present in the edges to complement the support given by the springs.

8) Allergies

Once again, this mattress is neither here-nor-there when it comes to guarding against allergies due to its hybrid construction and lack of hypoallergenic specifics.

9) Temperature Regulation

The memory foam comfort layers are specifically designed to dissipate heat and keep you cool through gel infusion.

But with this being a memory foam mattress, I would still invest in some high quality cooling beds sheets to be on the safe side.

10) Keeping You Dry

If you go with a set of cooling bamboo bed sheets then you should be able to sleep both cool and dry in this mattress.

11) Odour

This mattress is apparently infused with silver to give it antimicrobial properties which may help to inhibit mold growth and reduce odours as you sleep in it.

12) Pain

If you sleep on your front or back then the firmness and pressure relief of this mattress may be enough to help you manage and possibly even prevent back pain.

But if you sleep on your side then you’ll probably find this mattress to be too firm on your shoulders.

Comfort Analysis

To summarise, I think that this mattress is best for front and back sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs range – whilst side sleepers of all weights will likely find this mattress to be too firm.

More details below.

Front Sleepers

If you’re a front sleeper in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range then you should find the support layers sufficient to keep your hips aligned and lessen the chance of experiencing back pain.

Back Sleepers

Similarly, if you sleep on your back then the comfort and support layers should be adequate for you.

Side Sleepers

I don’t recommend this mattress for side sleepers because it will probably feel too firm on your shoulders.

Combo Sleepers

Combo sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs weight range should be ok moving around in this mattress and feel comfortable – as long as you don’t spend too much time on your side.

Pros

  • Good support for front and back sleepers.
  • The foams are designed to dissipate heat and keep you cool.
  • The edges are reinforced with extra foam to guard against sinkage.

Cons

  • This mattress may be too thin for you at 13.5 inches if you’re very heavy despite the firmness and support.

Who Should Buy This Mattress?

  • Front and back sleepers in the 130 lbs – 200 lbs range.

Who Should Avoid This Mattress?

  • Side sleepers will probably find this mattress too firm.

Simmons Beautyrest Mattress Buying Guide

Hopefully, the Simmons Beautyrest mattress reviews and comparison chart that I’ve provided above have helped you decide which mattress is best for you.

But if not, I’ve answered some of the most common questions below so that you can continue to shop for and buy a Simmons Beautyrest mattress that’s ideally suited to you by yourself.

Who Makes Beautyrest Mattresses?

Beautyrest mattresses are manufactured by the Simmons Bedding Company [1].

Founded in 1870 by Zalmon G. Simmons, Simmons Bedding Company is one of the oldest companies of its kind in the United States with Serta Simmons Bedding, LLC being listed as the parent company at the time of writing.

What Types of Beautyrest Mattresses Do Simmons Sell?

The Beautyrest mattresses made by Simmons are predominantly hybrid beds – combining the features of memory foam and innerspring mattresses.

If you’ve not bought a mattress for some time then you’ll probably know what an innerspring mattress is but memory foam and hybrid beds might be new to you.

So here’s a very quick summary of each type and which one you should choose or avoid depending on your needs.

1: Memory Foam

Pure memory foam mattresses are made of a comfort top layer and a base support layer – each of which may contain several sublayers within.

The comfort layer is designed to use your body heat to reconfigure the molecules of the foam to adapt to your exact body shape and provide more individualised comfort when compared to the upholstered layer of a traditional innerspring bed.

The lower support layers of a memory foam mattress are designed to replace the springs that you’d normally find in a regular innerspring mattress by using high density foam to support your spine and stop you from sinking too far into the mattress.

Generally speaking, you should go for a memory foam mattress if you sleep on your front, side, or back, weigh under 250 lbs, and you’re looking for greater pressure relief on your hips and shoulders.

The heavier you are, the thicker and firmer the mattress should be to provide enough surface tension and support to keep your hips aligned to guard against backache – heavier weighted front sleepers should take particular care because this position can cause back pain if your hips drop out of alignment.

Pure memory foam beds are a good choice if you sleep as a couple because the materials typically absorb motion better so that you don’t wake each other up shuffling around during the night.

And some of the best anti-allergy mattresses are made out of pure foam because the materials are naturally resistant to ambient allergens like dust mites and pollen.

But if you have sensitive skin, eczema, or asthma, then you should look for foams that are CertiPUR-US® certified because these foams lack many potentially harmful chemicals that may otherwise cause irritation.

At the time of writing, the Simmons Mattress Company is listed on the official CertiPUR-US® website as being a company that offers products containing certified polyurethane foams [2].

However, you should choose an innerspring or hybrid mattress if you sleep hot over memory foam mattresses that lack gel infusion, corrugated foams, or other cooling properties because regular memory foam tends to absorb your body heat and reflect it back to you – which can cause you to overheat even more.

Otherwise, buying a decent set of cooling bed sheets can help you to stay cool and dry in your memory foam mattress if you’re a temperate sleeper.

2: Hybrid

A huge number of the Beautyrest mattresses are hybrid beds.

And hybrid mattresses make for some of the best beds that you can buy in my experience.

Because they typically combine a foam top layer with a coiled base layer to provide a level of comfort and support that’s superior to regular innerspring mattresses that only have a quilted top layer.

This means that firmer hybrid mattresses with a deeper support core are the best choice for you if you weigh over 200 lbs for front, side, back, and combo sleepers.

But if you’re a side sleeper that’s closer to the 130 lbs mark or below, you’ll want to look for a softer/plush hybrid mattress so that you can sink further into the materials to take the pressure off your shoulders.

If you sleep as a couple then look for hybrid mattresses with individually wrapped coils to help limit motion transfer.

If you have allergies like hay fever or problems with dust mites then hybrid beds can be good and bad because whilst the foam top layer can act as a barrier to pollen and dust, the spacious spring core can actually trap them and cause you to breathe them in as you sleep.

3: Innerspring

Traditional innerspring mattresses are comprised of a spring core and a basic quilted top layer that can provide good support and air flow to help you sleep cool, but are the worst option if you have allergies because the materials tend to harbour dust mites, pollen, and pet dander.

But as is the case with most spring mattresses that you can buy these days, many of Simmons’ Beautyrest mattresses are actually hybrid beds.

This is mostly a good thing because the foam typically offers superior comfort and is better at blocking ambient allergens.

What Are the Beautyrest Mattress Ranges?

In addition to their own website, Simmons sell their mattresses through a range of retailers and depending on which one you visit, you may see anything from just a handful of selections to an overwhelming array of different options.

You’ll typically find that the Beautyrest mattresses are grouped into the BeautySleep®, Silver®, Platinum®, and Black® ranges.

Here are my summary reviews for each range:

1: Beautyrest BeautySleep Review

The mattresses in the BeautySleep® ranges are advertised as innerspring mattress.

But when I took a closer look at each individual mattress, I discovered that they are actually hybrid beds that combine proprietary foam and wrapped coil layers.

And you can order them in a range of firmnesses including firm, plush, luxury firm, luxury firm pillow top, and plush pillow top – with mattress thicknesses ranging from 11 to 14 inches.

Overall, I would say that the BeautySleep® range offers very high quality mattresses that should suit just about every sleeping position across the 130 lbs to 200 lbs weight range – with the firmer and thicker options being potentially suitable for even heavier weighted sleepers due to the strong support coils.

2: Beautyrest Silver Review

The Beautyrest Silver® range again features hybrid beds.

This time combining cooling foam and fiber surface layers with gel comfort layers that’s designed to conform to your body shape for enhanced comfort and support.

The spring core comprises of Pocketed Coil® technology to provide support and minimise motion transfer for a more restful night’s sleep if you have a bed partner that wriggles around a lot.

I would recommend the thicker and firmer selections from the Silver range for heavier weighted front and back sleepers who may be trying to manage back pain.

Whilst the plusher and softer firmnesses are better mattresses if you sleep on your side because they will take the pressure away from your shoulders.

3: Beautyrest Platinum Review

The Beautyrest Platinum® range offers an extensive range of named hybrid mattresses – such as the Foxtail™, Ledger™, Montego™, Quentin™, Armand™, Samson™, Gabriella™, and Scotty™ – each with potentially different ranges of firmnesses.

I would say that these are good hybrid mattresses if you tend to sleep hot because the foam layers are specifically designed to dissipate heat and increase airflow to keep you cool.

And with mattress thicknesses being available up to 16.5 inches in a range of firmnesses for the Montego™, these selections will be ideal for you if you’re a heavier weighted sleeper because of the deeper layers and coiled support core.

4: Beautyrest Black Review

The Beautyrest Black® range presents the best in what Simmons have to offer in terms of mattress quality and features.

The Black range has a tighter selection of named mattresses than the Platinum range – including the Calista™, Desiree™, Katarina™, and Natasha™ – with various firmnesses such as extra firm, luxury firm, plush, luxury firm pillow top, and plush pillow top.

These firmnesses mean that all sleeping positions are catered for but if you’re a combo sleeper that tends to shuffle around during the night then the Comfort Response Latex should make it easier to move around in the materials without getting bogged down like you might in a regular memory foam mattress because latex typically increases the surface tension to guard against sinkage.

And the Surfacecool Plus Fiber, Dynamic Response Memory Foam, Blackice Memory Foam, and Ventilated Aircool Beautyedge foam all combine to increase airflow and dissipate your body heat to help you sleep cool too.

The Beautyrest Black® range offers some of the best features that I’ve seen in modern mattress technology to date.

What Are the Benefits of Buying a Beautyrest Mattress?

Here are some of the potential benefits of buying a Beautyrest mattress based on my own experience of reviewing the various Beautyrest mattresses and ranges:

  • Cooling design – I like that many of the Beautyrest mattresses are specifically designed to improve airflow to help keep you cool, whilst the memory foams have been infused with gel and crafted specifically to combat the traditional problem of memory foam sleeping hot – even turning it to an advantage to actually enhance the cooling features of the mattress.
  • Wide range of firmnesses – softer mattresses are generally better for side sleepers whilst firmer mattresses can provide better support for front and back sleepers, and the Beautyrest mattresses are available in everything from extra firm to soft/plush to accommodate all sleeping positions.
  • Thicker mattresses available – the Black® and Platinum® ranges offer thicker mattresses in the region of 16 – 16.5 inches respectively to offer greater depth and support if you’re a heavier weighted sleeper that finds thinner mattresses too uncomfortable.

What Are the Beautyrest Mattress Complaints?

Based on the Beautyrest mattresses that I’ve reviewed, here are some of the possible drawbacks to keep in mind before you buy your Beautyrest mattress:

  • You might need a box spring – if you’re unable to place your mattress on a solid, flat surface – or a frame that has slats no more than 2 inches apart – then you may need to purchase a box spring to provide the right amount of support to stop your mattress from sagging.
  • Cost – whilst Beautyrest mattresses range significantly in price, there’s little denying that these mattresses tend to be above the average price point when compared to the rest of the market overall.

Which Frames Are Beautyrest Mattresses Compatible With?

It will depend on the exact model, but your Beautyrest mattress should be compatible with most frames and foundations – possibly including adjustable bases in some cases.

But as I said above, you’ll probably need a box spring for extra support if you’re using a slatted base where the slats are more than 2 inches apart to guard against sagging.

What Sizes Can You Buy Beautyrest Mattresses In?

It will depend on the model and the retailer, but you should be able to buy your Beautyrest mattress in a range of sizes including queen, king, twin, twin xl, and California king.

But I would recommend measuring your bed frame and then comparing it to the exact dimensions of the mattress listed in the product description to avoid any issues with the differences in naming conventions and associated dimensions between countries.

If you go for a mattress that’s between 14 and 16 inches thick then you’ll need a deep pocketed fitted sheet, and an extra deep pocket fitted sheet for mattresses that are above 16 inches thick.

Can You Flip Beautyrest Mattresses?

No – not usually.

Unless the mattress has been specifically labelled as double-sided then you should assume that your Beautyrest mattress cannot be flipped because of the unilateral design.

So if you were to turn your Beautyrest mattress over then you’d end up sleeping on the lower support layers – which would be very uncomfortable.

You can however, rotate your mattress once per season to help distribute the cumulative load that your mattress is exposed to in order to guard against indenting and general wear and tear.

How Long Do Beautyrest Mattresses Last?

It’s difficult to say.

High quality hybrid mattresses tend to have a potential lifespan of up to 7 – 10 years.

But it really depends on your body weight, sleeping habits, and how well you look after your mattress.

Is There a Sleep Trial?

Yes.

If you buy directly from Beautyrest.com then you may qualify for the 100 night sleep trial.

However, if you order from a different retailer then you should carefully check the product description to see if the 100 night sleep trial still applies.

If not, you may be able to avail of a different return policy depending on the company.

Is There a Warranty?

Yes.

If you order from the Beautyrest.com website then you’ll be covered by a 10 year limited warranty.

Is White Glove Delivery Available?

Yes.

If you order from the Beautyrest.com website then your mattress will be delivered and set up for you, and your old mattress will be removed.

However, if you buy from a different retailer – or are located outside the US – then white glove delivery might not be available.
