Quick Summary

Simmons Bedding Co. has been in business since 1871. Since 2012, the company has sold mattresses under the Beautyrest brand name. Currently, Simmons offers the following Beautyrest beds:

  • The Beautyrest Black Original is an innerspring mattress built with comfort layers of polyfoam and memory foam. The support core consists of pocketed coils encased in high-density foam, while the cover is made of cooling BlackICE fabric. The Beautyrest Black Original has a ‘Medium’ feel that corresponds to a 5 on the 1-10 firmness scale. It measures 14.5 inches thick.
  • Simmons Beautyrest customers can choose two upgrades for their Beautyrest Black Original. The Beautyrest Black + Cooling includes an additional comfort layer of RightTemp memory foam, which has cooling and moisture-wicking properties. The Beautyrest Black + Cooling + Comfort design includes the RightTemp memory foam layer and an additional pillow-top layer, which gives the mattress a ‘Medium Soft’ (4) feel. Both of these upgrades increase the bed’s overall price-point.
  • The Beautyrest Hybrid is constructed with memory foam and polyfoam comfort layers, along with a pocketed coil support core encased in high-density foam. A cooling BlackICE cover is also included. The bed has a 13.5-inch profile and a ‘Medium’ (5.5) feel.

Please note: Many bygone Beautyrest mattresses remain available for sale in brick-and-mortar stores and on web-based retailer sites. This review will exclusively look at the brand’s four current models.

Beautyrest’s current selection includes different thickness, firmness, and composition options, ensuring a suitable design for most sleepers regardless of their weight or preferred position. The beds also excel at temperature neutrality, largely due to their cooling BlackICE covers and strong airflow through the coil layers. Compared to other innersprings and hybrids, Beautyrest models isolate more motion and produce less noise.

Beautyrest offers free White Glove delivery for all orders. Each mattress is also backed by a 100-night sleep trial and a 10-year warranty.

Read on to learn more about Beautyrest mattresses in terms of construction, pricing, and performance. This review also includes an overview of Simmons’ shipping, return, and warranty policies, along with some similar mattress recommendations.

What Type of Sleeper is Best Suited to a Beautyrest Mattress?

Based on our customer feedback, Beautyrest mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective, and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a bed.

For more information on sleeping positions please see our guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.

As you can see, Beautyrest mattresses have earned the most positive ratings from side, back, and stomach sleepers weighing 230 pounds or less. Each mattress has a ‘Medium’ or ‘Medium Soft’ feel, making them ideal for sleepers who enjoy close body conforming.

It’s also important to note that Beautyrest mattresses are all much thicker than average. As a result, they may not be suitable for sleepers who prefer lower-profile beds.

We recommend a Beautyrest Mattress if...

  • You like mattresses that conform closely to targeted pressure relief and improved spinal alignment.
  • You tend to sleep hot.
  • You prefer mattresses with profiles of 13 inches or thicker.

How Do Beautyrest Mattresses Compare to Other Beds?

As any consumer does with a product they’re considering, our mattress assessments naturally involve comparing them with other similar products. Be it composition, firmness, or price, we think it’s important to see how Beautyrest mattresses stack up to other beds.

In addition to the standard Beautyrest Black Original, Simmons allows customers to upgrade their bed with added cooling layers and/or a softer pillow-top surface. This level of customization is a great option for those who find the Beautyrest Black Original too warm and/or firm. Additionally, the Beautyrest Hybrid is a lower-cost alternative that also provides a balanced, ‘Medium’ feel.

    2. Warranty coverage is contingent on proper foundational support. Per Simmons: “Beautyrest Black mattresses will work with most frames, foundations, and adjustable bases. Your mattress needs a box spring, or other solid surface, or the frame should have included slats that are no more than 2 inches apart from one another.” Simmons may void the warranty if owners do not use a proper foundation and damage occurs as a result.
    3. With the exception of owners in California, all Beautyrest mattress owners must cover shipping and transportation costs related to mattress repairs or replacements.
    4. The warranty will cover the following defects:
      • Manufacturing flaws in the mattress components or cover fabric.
    5. The warranty will not cover the following:
      • Normal increases in mattress softness that do not compromise its pressure-relieving abilities. This is considered normal wear and tear.
      • Repair or replacement requests that occur due to changes in the owner’s comfort preferences.
      • Burns, cuts, tears, stains, and other types of physical damage that occur due to abuse, misuse, or neglect.
    6. This warranty is non-transferable, and exclusively available to original owners who buy their Beautyrest mattress from Simmons or an authorized retailer. Those who buy or acquire their mattress from the original owner or a non-authorized retailer will not receive warranty coverage.
