Simmons Beautyrest Mattress Review
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
A Simmons Beautyrest mattress offers customers a wide range of choices and scores consistently highly in many consumer satisfaction surveys. The Simmons Beautyrest comes in a range of different styles and finishes, and there are a number of different springing options available.
The Simmons brand has built its reputation on the back of the three key features of each mattress they build:
Patented Pocketed Spring system – all Simmons mattresses feature their patented Pocketed Coil system. These uniquely design, hand finished coils provide excellent support throughout the night which is one of the main reasons Simmons actively encourage all their customers to try their mattresses before they buy. The number of pocketed coils in the Simmons Beautyrest range varies from 800 for the Beautyrest Classic, to almost 2,000 in the Beautyrest Exceptionale mattress generally speaking, the more coils your mattress has the more comfort it will provide.
Advanced sidewall technology – the strength of any mattress is derived from the quality of the work and materials that go into the sidewall of the mattress. Simmons use two different systems in their Beautyrest range, the Classic Edge Support system and the Ultra 360 Foam Encasement. Both of these systems offer excellent levels of comfort for both sitting and sleeping right up to the edge of the mattress.
Premium Visco foam materials – after the coil system, it’s the padding and fabrics that add most to the comfort of any mattress, and latex and memory foam is used widely throughout the Simmons range. The Beautyrest NxG uses advanced memory foam that is said to help with heat dissipation, keeping you cooler at night. One of the major flaws reported by memory foam mattress users has always been the fact that heat builds up throughout the night. The NxG range addresses this major issue.
Some of the unique features that the Simmons Beautyrest mattress provides, leads to some appealing benefits for the sleeper:
The combination of the pocketed coil springs and memory foam padding leads to unsurpassed levels of motion separation. Simmons maintain their mattresses reduce movement of the foam by over 65% which means that when your partner moves during the night, you are far less likely to be disturbed by that movement.
One of the main problems with memory foam mattresses has always been the amount of heat generated created by the friction of the movement between the body and the mattresses surface. Because of the way the NxG foam is manufactured, it facilitates the movement of air around the body which ensures an ideal body temperature is maintained throughout the night.
Sleep studies have shown that if a mattress is not finished to a high standard, it can cause disrupted sleep. Because of the luxury materials, such as cashmere and silk, that are used to finish Simmons mattresses, they eliminate many of the regular complaints surrounding rougher mattress surfaces – this results in a much more comfortable night’s sleep.
Overall, the amount of complaints we here about Simmons mattresses from their customers is fairly low. The main issue seems to be around their warranty, and it seems they can sometimes interpret their terms and conditions quite strictly. I have heard of people who’ve had their warranty claims denied for reasons such as a soiled mattress, or for something as simple as removing the tag.
I must stress that Simmons have sold millions of mattresses in the United States and any complaints come from a tiny fraction of these customers. All the grievances I have mentioned come from entirely anecdotal evidence, I myself have never experienced this.
Simmons have been making and selling mattresses for more than 135 years, so they must be doing something right. They make a range of mattresses to suit different needs, but the Simmons Beautyrest mattress remains the most popular model in their catalogue – prices range from around $1,000 for the Beautyrest Classic, up to around $2,500 for the Beautyrest Exceptionale mattress.
