Simmons Beautyrest is a very well known brand and has invested in big advertising, and oftentimes blasted on radio programming on mattress discount promotions. They are generally offered at many traditional mattress retailers. But does experience necessary mean a better sleep? In this case, the reviews speak for themselves.
Simmons is famous for their Beautyrest mattress. Although they also have a lower tier brand called Beautysleep, many of the components that we describe about Beautyrest are going to be the same across this other line. The Simmons Beautyrest mattresses on the market today are all pocketed coil innerspring mattresses or hybrid mattresses (pocket coils and more memory foam). Unfortunately, there are reports about durability and quality control issues with people experiencing pain from sleeping on some of their bedding.
The pros: Good variety of pocket coil and hybrid mattresses with a variety of firmness options.
The cons: Higher than average reports of durability and quality issues.
Simmons Beautyrest makes three different lines: The Beautyrest Recharge, Beautyrest Elegance, and Beautyrest Black. We'll go through each of these lines in depth so you know what's inside.
Simmons Beautyrest Recharge offer 19 different mattress options. The big differences between them are the firmness, top, and hybrid options. The rule to go by is that more foam, means more cost. The middle of the line Audrina mattress has three thin layers of gel foam over the pocket coils and has a 14'' profile.
The pros of this mattress line is the wealth of options at the lowest pricepoint for a Beautyrest.
The cons are reports that durability and comfort may be lacking.
Price Range: $799-$3599
Final Score: 6.1 / 10
The Beautyrest Platinum mattress is the luxury mid-line mattress of the group. It has 12 different offerings and similar to the Beautyrest Recharge, the main differences are firmness, top, and foam. The Luxury Firm Gabriella, which is in the middle of the group, is very similar to the Beautyrest Recharge, but the extra money is spent on better foam and more, smaller pocket coils.
The pros: Lots of options for the line, similar to the Recharge.
The cons: Big pricepoint increase without a substantial increase in material, and also similar reports of durability issues.
Price Range: $1499-$4199
Final Score: 6.0 / 10
The Beautyrest Black has gotten a lot of acclaim from Tom Brady's endorsement and commercials. Similar to the Platinum, there are 12 different options. The middle of the line Katarina has 1'' more profile than the other lines. The big difference between this mattress and the Platinum is the additional microdiamond infused memory foam. According to Simmons, this helps whisk away the heat.
The pros: Though gel would be more affordable, we can agree -- it's just a lot 'cooler' to have diamond infused foam!
The cons: There is a significant pricepoint increase for not a lot of increase in materials vs. the other Simmons mattress (except for the diamond foam). Though this is a newer mattress, please be aware that other Simmons mattresses have had complaints about durability.
Price Range: $1999-$6999
Final Score: 6.2 / 10
Outstanding mattress at an unbeatable price. Mattress Firm wanted $1k for the same exact mattress!View More Reviews
This mattress felt great at first but after only 1 year started to sag on both sides, leaving a "hill" in the middle.
Now we are having back problems and so are replacing it after only a little more than a year. This is a horrible investment,
don't make this mistake.
Way too soft!!
Mattress is ok for few years but when it does go back, forget about the 10yrs warranty. Simmons will no honor it.. they will try to charge you as much or more for "upgrading the mattress" with no warranty on the replacement! I have filed complaints with BBB but they don't care.
Please file complaints if you have had any warranty issues so they are force to take of the customers!
Wished it was thicker
We just received this mattress today, and it is TERRIBLE! I am writing this review at 1:30am because I can't sleep on it. I have given up and am now lying on a foam topper placed on the bedroom floor, and I am much more comfortable here on the floor than I was in the bed.
The fabric on the mattress is stiff and of very low quality. This shouldn't be a problem because it's covered with a mattress pad and sheets anyway, but it still doesn't "give" for that plush feel. You sink into the mattress, which could be good, except you are met with hard springs and awful pressure points. My husband, a back sleeper, is already having terrible back pains after just a few hours. I'm a side-sleeper, and my shoulder and hip are killing me. I know they say a mattress needs time to settle, but I can't tolerate this bed for a few hours, much less a whole night. I will be returning this mattress.
The cheapest made mattress we have ever purchased. I have now had 2 of these mattresses, the first was ripped and sagged in the middle right out of the package. They (nationwide retailer) replaced it with another and it is as bad, if not worse. It squeaks so bad and is so cheap. I paid over $1,300 for a king set and it is completely useless to us. It makes so much noise and racket every time you move. I will never buy anything with the Beautyrest name.
This is the Worst worst worst bed ever!!!!!
The worst purchase we ever made. If you have back or hip issue potential, this bed will bring it out! I hate this miserable, awful bed!
If Stephen King were to write about a pain inflicting bed, this bed would be it!!!
Beautiful comfortable bed delivered thru Amazon just as easily as ordering a small item
Delivered fast and easily. We are quite happy. Excellent quality !
Outstanding mattress at an unbeatable price. Mattress Firm wanted $1k for the same exact mattress!
