A Simmons Mattress Review


If you’ve ever visited a Mattress Firm, you’ve surely seen, or maybe even tried, a Simmons mattress. The Simmons Bedding Company was founded in 1870 and is one of the largest in the mattress industry. They sell a large variety of beds, each of which is apart of different collections and sold under two of Simmons leading subsidiary brands: Beautyrest® and Beautysleep®. In this mattress guide, we’ll be discussing their Beautyrest® brand, the beds they sell, as well as Simmons mattress reviews to help you decide if this big brand carries your next bed.

Skip ahead:

Beautyrest® Background

Beautyrest® was the first subsidiary brand Simmons established. Since it’s debut, Simmons expanded upon its collections and improved the sleep technologies used in their beds. The Beautyrest® brand has five main collections: Black, Platinum, Hybrid, Silver, and Beautyrest®. Each collection contains up to three different mattress models, each of which are varying heights, firmness, and made with different materials. Because Simmons strives to offer a wide variety of mattresses, it makes it easy to find a comfortable bed from one of their collections.

The names of these mattresses may change from retailer to retailer, as Simmons usually gives them vague names and allows the retailer to market it how they choose. If you find a mattress on their website you’re sure is a fit for you and you do not see it while you shop, ask to see if they carry the bed you saw online, a store employee should be able to point you in the right direction.

Beautyrest® Black

beautyrest black

Beautyrest® Black is Simmons’ most luxury line. In these beds, Simmons uses higher quality foams to deliver exceptional pressure relief, support, and comfort. They also use enhanced cooling technologies to prevent you from waking up hot throughout the night. If you’re somebody who suffers from chronic back pain or tends to sleep hot, a Beautyrest® Black mattress could be for you.

There are five mattresses within this collection: three innerspring beds and two mattresses in a box. The three innerspring mattresses are called K-Class™, C-Class™, and L-Class™. In these beds, Simmons uses its proprietary T3 pocketed coil system. These coils are three steel strands wrapped around one another designed to reduce motion transfer and prolong the lifespan of the mattress.

Simmons sells these three mattresses similar to how car brands market vehicles. The K-Class™ mattress comes with all of Beautyrest®’s® sleep-promoting bells and whistles, and as you move down the line, you lose perks. If you’re looking for the most luxurious Black collection mattress, choose the K-Class™. However, if you’re shopping on a budget, you’d probably want to select the L-Class™.

All of these mattresses are available in a variety of firmness, from Ultra Plush to Extra Firm. Regardless of your sleep style, there’s a comfortable firmness for you. Below, we’ll break down the materials Beautyrest® uses in their innerspring beds.

Beautyrest® engineers a lot of their own materials for their mattresses, such as RightTemp™ memory foam and Beautyrest® gel foam. Though they may not be common materials, their names are usually descriptive of what the layer is designed to do. For example, the RightTemp™ memory foam is engineered to dissipate heat out of the mattress and keep the bed at the “right temperature” for sleep.

Beautyrest® sells their two mattresses in a box exclusively at Mattress Firm locations. The first bed-in-a-box is called the Black® Memory Foam, and the other is the Black® Hybrid. The Black® Memory Foam beds are all-foam and contain layers of Beautyrest®’s® proprietary materials. The beds in this collection include Scarlett™ Plush, Nadie™ Luxury Firm, Aubrie™ Firm, Phoebe™ Plush, and Kelsie™ Luxury Firm.  Let’s look at the materials in these beds:

The Black® Hybrid beds use a pocketed coil system unlike the memory foam alternative, however, this coil system differs from the one used in the K-Class™, C-Class™, and L-Class™ mattresses. In this bed-in-a-box, Simmons uses their Advanced Pocketed Coil™ Technology. This technology is designed to offer targeted and durable support for the rest of the mattress. The beds in this collection include Wellington™ Plush Pillow Top, Tolliver™ Firm, Jennings™ Plush, Clermont™ Ultra Plush Pillow Top, Gladney™ Luxury Firm, and Alcove™ Plush.

Beautyrest® Platinum

The Beautyrest® collection contains three mattresses: Haven Pines™, Spring Grove™, and Jaycrest™. These beds are engineered to promote a neutral sleeping environment, making them an excellent choice for those who tend to wake up hot throughout the night.

Haven Pines™ is available from Plush to Luxury firm, as is Spring Grove™. Jaycrest™, on the other hand, is only sold as Plush. Most mattress retailers carry these beds in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King. Remember, the names of these beds may change from retailer to retailer, so if you do not see the Haven Pines™ or Jaycrest™ name, ask to see which mattress would be the equivalent model.

These beds are not as pricey as the mattresses in the Black collection, so they’re better suited for those shopping on a budget. Below, you can view the prices based on Queen sizes.

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

Beautyrest® Hybrid

beautyrest hybrid

Technically speaking, all of the Beautyrest® mattresses we’ve discussed, besides the Black® Memory Foam beds, are “hybrids” because they contain a combination of foams and coil systems. However, Beautyrest® markets this collection as being their hybrid beds because they’re designed to be an even mix of foam and coils, offering a 50/50 ratio of materials.

Each of the beds in this collection includes Beautyrest®’s® proprietary ContourFit™ foam, designed to contour and cradle most body types regardless of the sleeper’s position. Because this foam is designed to contour to a variety of body types in varying sleep styles, it’s a good fit for a majority of sleepers, as it should provide adequate pressure relief and comfort.

This collection includes four beds: BRX3000-IM™, BRX1000-IP™, BRX1000-C™, and their Hybrid Mattress-in-a-Box.

Both the BRX3000-IM™ and BRX1000-IP™ are available from Ultra Plush to Extra Firm, while the BRX1000-C™ is only available as Plush. Lastly, their Hybrid Mattress-in-a-Box is only carried in medium firmness. Let’s look at the layers:

As you can assume, 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.

Beautyrest® Silver

Beautyrest® Silver beds contain one key material the other Simmons mattresses don’t include, silver. Silver dissipates heat, so using this material in their beds helps prevent heat from being trapped within the bed. Another perk to using silver is that it naturally inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew, ensuring you’ll be sleeping on a healthy, clean bed night after night. These mattresses are designed to be long-lasting, with Beautyrest® putting a significant emphasis on durable materials.

We recommend the Silver collection for children due to their enhanced germ-fighting technologies, and for those looking to buy a bed that will last for years to come.

This collection contains two innerspring beds: BRS-900C and BRS-900. The BRS-900C is the more luxurious version of the original BRS-900, so if you’re interested in the silver beds and wanting to choose the best of the best, choose the BRS-900C model. Below, we’ll break down the pricing and layers.

These beds are a more budget-friendly option in comparison to Beautyrest’s® other collections:

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

These beds are available in a variety of firmness, from Plush to Extra Firm.

The Beautyrest® Mattress

Beautyrest’s® flagship mattress is a popular option for a large variety of sleepers because it’s carried in a variety of firmnesses and is relatively inexpensive. The price of a Beautyrest® bed can range from $499 to $799, making it significantly less than other options on this list.

This mattress does not contain a lot of sleep-promoting technologies as the design is relatively simple. If you’re looking for the basics from a mattress, this bed should suit you.

Sleep Trial

Because Simmons sells their mattresses through third-party retailers, they cannot offer their customers a sleep trial directly. Before you buy, be sure to ask the store you’re buying from if they offer a sleep trial. If they don’t, it’s probably best to shop elsewhere. Testing a bed in-store for only a few minutes is not the best indicator of the bed’s comfort and whether or not it’s the best fit for you. Sleep trials, on the other hand, let you try your new mattress in your home for a couple of months while deciding if it’s a comfy fit.

Mattress Firm carries a large variety of Simmons Beautyrest® beds, and they provide a 120-night sleep trial when you buy with them. However, though they offer a “free” sleep trial, their returns are not free, should you decide the bed isn’t the best for you. If you choose to return, it can cost up to $99 in some markets just for the transportation fee of the mattress. After, Mattress Firm charges a fraction of the cost of the bed as a restocking fee, meaning a return could end up costing you a couple of hundred dollars. Because returning a mattress is not the easiest, or most inexpensive, option with Mattress Firm, we don’t recommend shopping with the anticipation of returning. If you’re on the fence, do more research and try a few other beds before settling on one you’re not entirely thrilled about buying.

Warranty Information

The warranty that comes with your Simmons bed will vary from retailer to retailer. Simmons offers 15 different warranties, at some retailers you may have the option to choose between warranty plans and pick the one you prefer, while other retailers offer only one or two warranties with their Simmons beds. Below, we’ll break down the different warranty programs.

Is a Beautyrest Bed For You?

We hope this guide has helped simplify the variety of Beautyrest mattresses carried and brought you one step further in your search for a new bed. During your search, read online mattress reviews, visit retailers, and take advantage of sleep trials to ensure you’re finding the best mattress for your sleep needs. Don’t be afraid to ask questions when visiting different mattress stores. When investing in your quality of sleep, it’s important that it’ll pay off in comfortable rest for years to come.
