Simmons Mattress Review: A Comprehensive Guide

The Simmons Bedding Company is one of the leading brands in the mattress industry. They make a variety of high-quality beds that are commonly found in most mattress retailers. In general, the best mattress is one that supports you and reduce aches, pains, and pressure points. When you’re browsing mattress retailers, you’ll probably be faced with a sea of mattresses that claim to do just that. To make your search less overwhelming, we’ve written this guide about the Beautyrest line and Beautyrest mattress reviews to help you decide if this mattress brand has the best bed for you.

Searching for a New mattress?

The Simmons Bedding Company

Simmons is an early mattress company, and it follows an older production and marketing system. That means the company develops a brand name, such as Beautyrest, and they then develop dozens of products under that name.

If you walk into a store and inquire about a Beautyrest mattress, you can choose from a variety of mattress types with different depths, construction types, and consistencies. By offering such a range, Simmons makes it easier for you to find the best mattress for you.

Within the Beautyrest flagship, there are five mattress collections: Black, Platinum, Hybrid, Silver, and Beautyrest. The names of the mattresses within these collections are subject to change from retailer to retailer, as most retailers have their own specific names for each of these beds.

In these next sections, we’ll be discussing each collection in detail, covering the mattresses in each group and the materials used to make them. Afterward, we’ll run through the sleep trial and warranty information for these mattresses.

Beautyrest Black®

beautyrest black mattress reviews

The Beautyrest Black® collection features three different innerspring mattress types, each of these containing a unique pocketed coil system specific to Beautyrest; the T3 Pocketed Coil® Technology. The coils in their proprietary T3 Pocketed Coil® technology are made from three steel strands. Ultimately, this technology aims to reduce motion transfer and increase the durability of these beds.

The Black® mattresses overall are designed to provide luxury pressure relief and support, exceptional temperature control, and be very durable. In these mattresses, they use a higher quality memory foam than what’s in their other beds, and they use many materials specifically designed to keep you cool. If you’re someone who frequently experiences pressure points, aches, or pains after waking, one of the mattresses featured in this collection would be a good fit for you.

On their website, they have generic names for these three mattress types, so they’re likely to change from retailer to retailer, as we mentioned before. These three mattress types are the K-Class™, the C-Class™, and the L-Class™.

There is not a substantial difference between these types. As you move from K-Class™ to C-Class™, you lose a layer of nano coils. As you move from the C-Class™ to the L-Class™, you lose a layer of temperature-regulating memory foam. It’s very similar to buying a car; when you go with the most luxurious package, you get all of the fun bells and whistles. As you drop tier by tier, you lose bells and whistles. That said, all three of these mattresses are considered to be high-quality, and though some may lack in bells and whistles, they still aim to provide an all-around comfortable sleeping experience.

Each of these mattress types comes in a variety of firmness levels, from Ultra Plush to Luxury Firm. Meaning, there is an option for you regardless of which sleeping position you favor.

Below, we’ll break down the materials included in each of layers of these beds:

The Beautyrest website does not provide much information regarding the materials used in this mattress. Instead of disclosing specific materials, they use and talk about a lot of their own proprietary materials such as RightTemp™ memory foam, GelTouch® foam, and BlackIce™ technology.

These mattresses come in most standard sizes including TwinXL, Full, Queen, King and, California King. The prices vary by class. For this guide, we’ll be basing all of our prices off of Queen sizes.

  • K-Class™ mattresses run between $3,899 to $3,299.
  • The C-Class™ mattresses range in price from $2,699 to $2,899.
  • L-Class™ mattresses range in price from $2,399 to $1,799.

The Beautyrest Black® collection is not the most budget-friendly, with their cheapest mattress coming in at $1,799. Though with a hefty price tag comes advanced technology and durable support. These mattresses may be expensive, but they may be worth it in the long run, as customers mention in reviews owning their bed for over 20 years.

On top of featuring the core three mattresses, this collection also features two other mattress types sold exclusively at Mattress Firm: the Black® Memory Foam and the Black® Hybrid. Unlike the other mattresses in the Black® collection, the Memory Foam and Hybrid model both lack the T3 Pocketed Coil® Technology. The Memory Foam mattress is an all-foam mattress while the Hybrid mattress contains Advanced Pocketed Coil™ Technology, instead. The Beautyrest website does not mention the other materials used in these mattresses, but as they’re apart of the Black® collection, it’s implied they’re made from a few of the same materials we listed above.

Both the Black® Memory Foam and Hybrid mattress are available in a range of firmness levels, so you’re likely to find one that feels comfortable to you.

Beautyrest Platinum

BR platinum mattress reviews

The Beautyrest Platinum collection also features three different mattresses: Haven Pines™, Spring Grove™, and Jaycrest™.

The mattresses featured in their Platinum collection are specifically designed to promote a temperature neutral sleeping environment and offer great support to the sleeper. If you’re somebody who’s prone to sleeping hot, these mattresses would be great for you.

The Haven Pines™ and Spring Grove™ mattresses range from Plush to Luxury Firm while the Jaycrest™ is only available in a Plush firmness. Meaning, Haven Pines™ and Spring Grove™ mattresses have firmness options available for most any type of sleeper. Soft beds, though, are typically better for side sleepers. To find the best mattress for side sleepers, read our other guide.

Similar to the Black® collection, these mattresses operate on a “Good, Better, Best” model— the Jaycrest™ is the Good mattress, the Spring Grove™ is better, but the Haven Pines™ is the best. Haven Pines™ has the most bells and whistles while Jaycrest™ has the least. Below, we’ll discuss the materials in each.

Depending on the retailer you visit, these mattresses should be available in most standard sizes. The prices will vary by model. As we mentioned before, these prices are based on Queen sizes:

  • Haven Pines™ mattresses range in price from $1,899 to $1,599.
  • Spring Grove™ mattresses only range from $1,399 to $1,299.
  • The Jaycrest™ is $1,199 for a Queen.

These mattresses are a tad cheaper than the mattresses in the Black® collection but are still a bit pricey in comparison to mattresses you can buy online and other mattress brands. If you’re looking for a high-quality, cheaper mattress, read our guide to find the best online mattress.

Beautyrest Hybrid

beautyrest hybrid mattress reviews

Though the mattresses in the other collections, such as Black® and Platinum, contain memory foam, they’re a mostly innerspring mattress. By introducing the Hybrid mattresses, Beautyrest offers a bed with an even mix of coil support and memory foam comfort.

The selling point of these mattresses is the inclusion of ContourFit™ foam; this foam contours and cradles your body regardless of the sleeping position you’re in, which makes it a good fit for just about any sleeper.

The Beautyrest Hybrid line includes three mattress collections: BRX3000-IM™, BRX1000-IP™, and BRX1000-C™. Additionally, they sell their Hybrid Mattress-in-a-Box as a part of this collection.

The BRX3000-IM™and BRX1000-IP™ collections offer a variety of firmnesses with their mattresses, with options ranging from Ultra Plush to Extra Firm. The Hybrid Mattress-in-a-Box is only available in Medium, and the BRX1000-C™ is only available in Plush.

As you can probably guess, the prices of these models change as you go down the line, with the BRX3000-IM™ models being more expensive than the BRX1000-C™ mattresses.

  • The BRX3000-IM™ collection ranges in price from $2,299 to $1,799.
  • BRX1000-IP™ mattresses range in price from $1,599 to $1,299.
  • The BRX1000-C™ is $999.
  • The Hybrid Mattress-in-a-Box is $699.

The mattresses in the Hybrid collection range widely in price, with the most expensive mattress being over $2,000 and the least expensive being around $700. Regardless of your price restrictions, you’re likely to find a bed that works for your budget.

Below, we’ll break down the materials in each of these mattresses.

The other mattresses Beautyrest sells are considered to be innerspring mattresses because their design is mostly centered around the coil system of the bed, with foam layers added for comfort. The design of the mattresses in the Hybrid collection have a more even ratio of foam to coils, giving it a balance of comfort and bouncy support. If you aren’t a fan of the bouncy feeling of innerspring beds, or you are looking for a bed with exceptional motion isolation, a mattress from their Hybrid collection should meet your sleep needs.

Beautyrest Silver

The Beautyrest Silver line focuses on durability and longevity of the bed, designing these mattresses to be long-lasting. As the name suggests, they use silver in these mattresses. Silver naturally helps dissipate heat and inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew; by using silver in these mattresses you considerably reduce the risk of germs accumulating.

The Silver mattresses are innerspring mattresses, as well, so they have foam components in conjunction with a coil system. In this collection, there are two mattress types: BRS-900C and the BRS-900.

The BRS-900C mattress would be considered the luxury model because it’s made with more high-quality foam and heat reducing technologies than the BRS-900. Below, we’ll break down the layers.

Both the BRS-900C and BRS-900 mattresses come in a range of firmnesses, from Plush to Extra Firm, giving you a scope of options.

The price of these mattresses is less than the other two collections of innerspring mattresses:

  • A Queen BRS-900C ranges from $1,199 to $1,099.
  • The BRS-900 mattresses range in price from $899 to $999.

Beautyrest Silver mattresses are great for children because of their ability to reduce germs and bacteria in the bed. Furthermore, they’re a great option if you’re buying a bed with hopes of it lasting a long time. If you value durability and are looking for a mattress designed to last you for years to come, a mattress within their Silver collection is probably the best one for you.

The Beautyrest Mattress

beautyrest mattress reviews

The last mattress on our list is The Beautyrest Mattress. Known as the BR800, this mattress is available in Plush Pillow Top, Medium Pillow Top, Plush Euro Top, Medium, and Firm. Because they sell these mattresses in a variety of firmnesses, they have an option for every type of sleep style.

The Beautyrest mattress collection is very budget-friendly, with mattresses ranging in price from $499 to $799. If your budget restricts you, one of these mattresses should be an excellent option for the money.

The design of these mattresses is not particularly complicated, and these mattresses do not contain too much extra technology included in their other collections. Below, we’ll break down the layers:

ModelBR800
Comfort Layer

  • DualCool™ Technology

Contour Layer

  • GelTouch® Foam

  • Firm Comfort Foam

  • AirFeel® Foam

  • Gel Memory Foam Lumbar Support

If you’re looking for an inexpensive mattress that provides you with the essentials in regards to comfort and support, the Beautyrest BR800 is probably a good fit for you. Specifically, college students and growing children would fair well on these mattresses.

Sleep Trial

Simmons Bedding Company does not sell its Beautyrest Collection to consumers directly, which means it does not offer a sleep trial directly through their company. Instead, if a sleep trial is offered, it would be through the mattress retailer. Before buying, be sure to ask if the mattress comes with a sleep trial and how long the sleep trial is.

Beautyrest is commonly available at Mattress Firm, with their two Black® mattresses being exclusively sold at Mattress Firm. After looking on their website, we found that Mattress Firm offers its customers a 120-night sleep trial with any new mattress.

During this sleep trial, you have the opportunity to try the mattress in your own home to decide if it’s the best bed for you. They do require you to try their mattress for at least 30 nights, but if you find afterward the bed isn’t the best for your own sleep needs, you have the option to return it as long as the mattress is free from stains or damage.

Though they may offer a “free” sleep trial, their return process is not free. If you decide against keeping your new bed, you’ll have to pay $79.99 ($99.00 in some markets) to return your mattress and then 10% of your original total to have them restock the product. Which means a return could cost you a couple of hundred dollars. We would not recommend buying a mattress with the intention of trying and possibly returning. Before you buy, you should feel confident what you’re buying is the best mattress for yourself.

Warranty Information

Similar to the sleep trial, the warranty that comes with your Beautyrest mattress will vary from retailer to retailer.

On their website, it appears as if they have over 15 different warranty policies. We’re unsure if you’re able to choose which plan you’d like, or if each retailer offers a policy of its own. Below, we created a table summarizing their core 14 warranties.

Warranty CodeTotal Limited WarrantyPeriod for No Charge (Except Transportation)Normal Body Impression
A10 Years10 Years1.5" or less
B1 Year1 Year1.5" or less

Before you buy, be sure to ask about the warranty information— specifically how long it lasts, what defects it covers, and what costs you’re responsible for in the event of a warranty claim.

Overview of Our Beautyrest Mattress Review

The Simmons Bedding Company has been a part of the mattress industry since 1870, staying relevant by consistently designing and selling high-quality mattresses across the nation. If you’re looking for a new bed, Simmons Beautyrest makes a variety of options.

When reading reviews about the Beautyrest brand, we noticed two trends. The pros of buying a Beautyrest included affordable price and exceptional motion isolation. The negative reviews centered around the durability of the bed and the experience customers had with the Simmons Bedding Company. Though the bed is initially comfortable, many reviews mention the Beautyrest mattress sags or shows signs of wear and tear after only a year or so. They also state Simmons commonly finds loopholes out of fulfilling their end of the warranty agreement.

When buying with any brand, some pros and cons come with your purchase. Customer reviews are a great way to read about the good and bad experiences customers have had either with a company or while using a particular product. Before you buy your next bed, we encourage you to read mattress reviews and reviews about the retailer you’re buying from, too.
