When choosing a new mattress, there are a few different things to consider. Do you want it to feel extra firm, firm, soft or somewhere in the middle? What size mattress will work best for your sleep style and space? Is a hybrid, memory foam, or traditional spring mattress your best choice? What mattress base should you choose? And then, of course, there is the choice of which brand to go with.

At Sleep First, we're proud to carry a selection of the best brands on the market. From the popular Nectar and DreamCloud to Tempur-Pedic, Stearns & Foster and Simmons Beautyrest, we have choices to fit every kind of sleeper. Wondering which mattress brand might be right for you? In this post, we're kicking off our mattress brand guide with everything you need to know about one of our newest additions, Simmons Beautyrest!

Simmon Beautyrest Mattress Overview

Simmons Beautyrest is a modern luxury brand with an impressive legacy. Simmons has been leading the way in mattress technology and innovation since 1925 (fun fact: Simmons Bedding Company was the first manufacturer to create Queen and King size mattresses)! They have a huge mattress collection for just about any sleep position. All of that history and experience resulted in the amazing beautyrest hybrid collection we know and love today.

Simmons Beautyrest Mattress Collection

As a top mattress firm, Simmons Beautyrest has several different mattress lines to choose from, each with a different story and build. If you're liking the sound of this and wondering what your different options are, read on! Here is a rundown of the 3 equally amazing Beautyrest lines for you to choose from:

Beautyrest Black

The Simmons Beautycrest Black is a great complement to the Sleep First floor, as it's famed as one of the most technologically-advanced mattresses on the market. To us, Beautyrest is among the leaders in hybrid development. Individually wrapped coils (T3) provide consistent tension and a unique feel and support for your body weight. If you're like us, when you lay down on one of them, you'll remark at how substantial it feels. One night of sleep and you feel the quality instantly.

Designed with the T3 Pocketed Coil technology which takes three strands of coils spun into the most supportive and durable coil system for support. Providing 3X the amount of steel in these coils. The Black models top the coil system with the latest technological material BlackICE coupled with Techoluxe Memory Foam. These combine to provide higher quality pressure relief and with the cooling technology of BlackICE you stay cool while sleeping.

How to Choose a Beautyrest Mattress

Beautyrest offers you a lot of mattress options. One challenge people face when doing a comparison for the old Beautyrest mattress collection is retailers often have varying names for what seems to be the same exact mattress. When shopping for the perfect mattress, a good starting point would be to decide what type of Beautyrest mattress works for you. From there, you can make a selection then narrow down the list of mattresses to explore.

  • Firmness level: You have a lineup of firmness options. Consider what mattress firmness is comfortable to you. Which firmness level you should pick is more of a personal preference. Beautyrest offers different firmness levels ranging from plush to firm.
  • Price: Top-of-the-line Beautyrest mattresses are up there in price. Decide how much you're willing to splash on a new mattress before you go mattress shopping. Sleep First has a couple of Simmon Beautyrest mattresses on sale.
  • Mattress type: Beautycrest makes hybrid mattresses that combine the plushness of foam with a supportive, bouncy feel of coils. Most of their mattresses are more durable than all-foam models.
  • Sleep style: Some sleepers like to melt into their mattress while others prefer to lie on top. Sleep style often comes into play here. Do you sleep on your back or stomach? Medium-Firm to Firmer mattresses offers better spinal alignment and support in general. Side sleeper? Go for a softer mattress feel with a bit of firmness so your mattress won't dig into your shoulders and hips.
  • Upgrades: Do you fancy a $500 pillow top with a plush feel? Sleeping hot? Consider a cooling upgrade for a good night's sleep. Make sure you read customer reviews so you know how the mattress fares and whether it's really worth the price.

    Which Beautyrest mattress is right for you?

    It depends. Choosing a mattress boils down to three things; your sleeping needs, preferences, and budget. Thankfully, Beautyrest offers a huge mattress collection with various price points.

    Which Beautyrest mattress is good for side sleepers?

    Side sleepers can benefit from a medium soft mattress at a firmness scale of 4. Beautyrest Black is one of the softest models with 2-inches of memory foam and a plush pillow top.

    How long should a Beautyrest mattress last?

    It's advisable to replace your Beautyrest mattress every seven to 10 years as that's how long it lasts. Some memory foam mattresses can last for a little longer.

    Tempur Pedic or Beautyrest, which is the better mattress?

    Both are fantastic mattress brands with amazing lines of mattresses between them. Tempur Pedic is higher on price because of its high-quality mattress collection.
