Are Simmons Plush Mattress Sets Firm Enough?
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.
If you have ever been shopping for a mattress, either online or in bedding supply centers, you will have heard of Simmons. They are one of America’s most established mattress manufacturers and have retained their position in the leading group by being flexible enough to incorporate new designs, new materials and new technologies into their ranges at the right times, whilst consistently keeping a high standard and giving people choices. With this brand you always get a choice of finishes to the model you choose – should you opt for a Simmons plush mattress or firm mattress?
One of the most popular Simmons ranges is the BeautyRest collection, so we’ll start there. There are 5 main mattresses to look at, beginning with the Classic, then the Anniversary, the World Class, Exceptionale and the NXG. The pocketed-spring feature that defines the range is present in all 5 of the models, but the use of foam and other materials varies from set to set, as does things like the edge technology employed – that’s where your choices and budgets come in. What is consistent is that you will also have the BeautyFeel choice to make – and that’s how plush or how firm you want your mattress to be.
A Simmons BeautyRest plush set uses thinner gauge pocket-springs that yield to pressure from the upper layers that you’re sleeping on. They will also use extra foam in the upper layers of the mattress to provide an all-round softer finish to sleep on.
A firm mattress in the same set utilizes a thicker gauge of pocket-spring which resists the pressure more from above, meaning there is less “give” in it.
Then there’s the Pillow-top finish which uses multiple layers of foam attached to the upper mattress areas to really create a surface that wraps around the body, even more so than the Simmons plush feel.
These are the three main finishes but there are also degrees of plushness and firmness including Luxury Firm and Plush/Firm that may be available.
Which one you will choose comes down to advice you receive and your personal preference. If you are one of the many people who suffer back-pain then your doctor or chiropractor will need to advise you on the type of mattress you will need to relieve the symptoms. The average buyer, however, will just need to try out the Simmons BeautyRest plush mattress in the store and compare it to the firm model to see which one suits best.
