Question From: Jennifer Flott. - April 23, 2015 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. I am trying to decide between two mattresses, the Serta Iseries Approval Super PIllow Top and the Merit Super Pillow Top. What are the main differences in these two. I currently have an icomfort that I am replacing (it developed 1" impressions). This is why I am considering a foam/spring, we want relatively soft but supportive. Are these both good options or should I look at something else completely? Thanks!
A.

Hi Jennifer,

The Serta iSeries Approval Super Pillow Top and the Serta iSeries Merit Super Pillow Top are the same thickness and the same comfort level.  The difference is that the Approval model has GFX memory foam in it which gives it an edge in terms of regulating body tempurature.  The GFX foam has graphene inside to be more effective at reducing heat while sleeping.

It's very rare we see any issues with sagging on the iComfort mattresses.  I highly recommend looking into bed bridges or better frame supports.   The few memory foam beds we have seen sag have been a combination of the mattress and the support underneath.  For king sizes, we recommend 4 or 5 slats with 2-3 legs under each slat.  Queen sizes also 4 or 5 slats with at least 2 legs under each slat.

Hi Roberta,

We have not received a lot of e-mails on that particular mattress having issues.  But two things you can check is your foundation and your bed frame.  If you don't have center legs under your mattress, this is a huge issue.  If there are not enough legs under the box spring, sagging is only a matter of time.  Same thing with bed frames.  Most often, customers will purchase a $49 queen bed frame that offers the minimal amount of support for the mattress.  For every night sleeping, we recommend getting a better frame with more legs under the center and stronger cross beams.  

If you would like some help determining the problem of the issue, send us pictures of your bed frame and box spring.  We can help you assess if it's the mattress having an issue or not.

Hi Stephanie,

A few details can help us narrow the comparison down for you.  A) What year did you purchase the Finalist Luxury mattress? B) Where did you originally purchase it?(either the store or where in the country) C) Is there to the name like Luxury Firm or Luxury Plush or Luxury Firm Pillow Top?

The Deep Sleep models have a lot of model names out there.  More so than the regular Beautyrest line does.  The deep sleep models also vary quite a bit.  We can help narrow it down but if the Finalist model is from further back than a year, there are only comparables in today's line up because new Deep Sleep's feature the pocketed coils.  The Deep Sleep's from the past all had a continuous coils.

Question From: valerie badlo. - April 3, 2015 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. My husband I want to purchase a mattress like our favorite hotel. It is part of the Hospitality Collection. Both beds from our favorite hotels are unable to order because they are smaller hotels.

I know we can buy the hospitality collection but we only have the old name for the mattress. Can you tell us what the new model might be called for either of these :
- Hospitality Collection:
1.) Beauty Rest World Class- Bouvit Island Super Pillow Top Plush or
-Hospitality Collection:
2.) Beauty Rest World Class - Tranquility Comfort Top - Dessus - Confort- Plush - Moelleux

Thank you!

Question From: Jared Long. - April 3, 2015 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. Hi,
I was wondering if you could provide me with more details/advice on the safety of the Grand Legacy Ultimate Pillowtop Mattress manufactured by White Dove in regards to chemical use? They utilize a blend of soy and polyurethane foam to reduce the overall amount of petrochemicals used in the mattress manufacturing process, but I feel this mattress is still quite a bit behind an organic one?
A.

Hi Jared,

I can't answer the specifics on how the poly/soy blend is mixed or exactly what is in it.  What I can tell you is White Dove is Certi-PUR certified which is a US based company that tests companies foams for harmful chemicals such as VOC's, formeldehyde, murcury, lead, and other heavy metals.  The brands we carry, Simmons, Serta, Southerland,  meet the Certi-PUR requirement and that is important to us.  Many customers of ours are worried about off gasing and chemicals so we actively seek brands that volunteer their materials to the Certi-PUR testing.

Question From: Terese Reed. - April 1, 2015 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. I have a Simmons queen size mattress which I bought before I got married. I LOVE this mattress. I bought it from Ashley Furniture some years back. It was the "back care" line. I can't find the mattress in a king size. I sleep on my side and my back and so does my husband. I would like a mattress that is comfortable but gives support and does not sag over time. Sagging seems to be a big issue with many reviews I have read. My husband is a tall and big man. I have herniated discs in my back and neck toss and turn all night due to hips, arms and legs falling asleep. Please help give advice on a mattress that will support, comfort, and last. Thanks
A.

Hi Terese,

Thanks for your question.  There are a few Back Care lines from the past.  Some were coils and some were foam mattresses with no coils at all.  If you have any pictures or identifying tags from the mattress, it helps to get an idea of how firm or soft it is on the spectrum.

A lot of the Back Care line had the evenloft top which is flat and not tufted.  With out know exactly what you have, I recommend a hybrid from Simmons or Tempur-Pedic as the closest style of mattress to the Back Care you currently own.  In terms of sagging, the Hybrid beds don't use foam layers other than the memory foam so it holds up.  The Simmons Hybrids have gotten great marks over the years with the NxG line and up to now as well with the Beautyrest Recharge Hybrids.

Question From: SaSan Mullins. - March 25, 2015 - Hotel Mattress Comparison
Q. Hi...My husband and I recently spent a few nights at Harrah's Lake Tahoe and were amazed at how well we slept and rested on the hotel's mattress. We checked the mattress tag and found that it was a Simmons Beautyrest World Class Felicity-C Super Pillow Top. We would love to purchase this mattress but from research on the Internet I am finding that this particular mattress is not made anymore. I did find a company on the Internet called SimmonsGuestPurchase.com which shows that they do sell the mattress ( on their site it is listed as Beautyrest Hospitality Collection "C" Casino Pillow Top ). However; I found a comment on the Internet regarding someone purchasing that mattress from the Guest Purchase site and they said that when the mattress arrived it was not the same mattress as the hotel mattress they had slept on. I certainly would not want to invest nearly two thousand dollars to have the mattress arrive and not be the same one. I found your website and was helped so much by all the queries. Thanks for being so helpful ! I am wondering if you could advise us as to what mattress we should purchase that would be as close as possible to the one at Harrah's. We are both side sleepers. If you can advise us on what mattress is very comparable, I would like to know if you sell that particular mattress and if not could you recommend a retailer in our area. We live just south of Houston, Texas in Santa Fe ( Galveston County ). Surely hoping we can find a mattress like the one we slept on at Harrah's...it was SO GOOD to get a restful night's sleep again ! Thanks for your help !
Sincerely,
SaSan Mullins

Hi Sasan,

To shoppers looking for the Felicity 650 at a local store, it's best to seak out two beds in the Simmons Beautyrest line up.  You want to find the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Plush Pillow Top and theBeautyrest Recharge World Class Firm Pillow Top.  These two Beautyrests can be found at most retailers that carry the Simmons World Class line.  Check out Simmons.com and plug in your zip code to find the nearest Beautyrest Retailer that lists World Class in the lines they carry.

The reason I list the two mattresses is because both beds are very close.  The Plush version is actually what is in the hotels and I find most consumer's like to know all the options available.  If you try them out and decide on one, send us a reply and we can help you price compare the mattresses to our own.  We offer our price comparisons for free and put all the information/pricing up on our website with every day low prices to help folks shopping not get "had" by the deceptive mattress pricing that's out there.

Question From: Debbie G. - March 24, 2015 - Miscellaneous
Q. in 2011 I bought a simmons LeBlanc PL Firm mattress. We tested in the store and loved it. When it arrived it was hard as a rock. We then purchased a latex topper which significantly helped. The topper now doesn't seem to be doing the trick. We removed the topper and the mattress is still so hard we can't sleep. What do you recommend for side/back sleepers who like a firm mattress but are getting older and experiencing back and neck issues? Have tried memory foam in hotels and don't like them. HELP!!!

Hi Debbie,

With out replacing the mattress, I think you are on the right track with the Latex toppers. Memory Foam toppers are firmer and react slowly while Latex toppers offer a much softer comfort level and can noticably give you a softer from your bed.  Depending on the type of latex, it may need to be replaced ever several years, but that's not a bad cost if the mattress itself retains its support.  

3" latex toppers will make your current mattress equivalent to a Plush Super Pillow Top Firm mattress.  Nothing makes the coils softer so the only way to go is adding padding.

Hi Donna,

The Beautyrest World Class Atkins Extra Firm is a blast from the past!! I remember that bed!  There is a current day equivalent to the Atkins.  Here is a link to the exact same model on our website, called the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Extra Firm.  They share the same comfort level, although there are tiny differences in the foam layers used and the coil count.  If you sat both mattresses side by side, however, you would not be able to a difference.  They are REALLY firm.

Hi Bob,

You won't find many reviews on the Thompson mattress you saw locally unless SlumberLand has solicited for them.  There are a dozen or more names for that specific mattress from retailer to retailer.   In searching for reviews and ratings, use the general phrase for it which is Beautyrest Recharge World Class Plush Pillow Top.  On our website, the exact same mattress is the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Plush Pillow Top.

Hi Veronica,

I was only able to identify one Pembroke Place at Carson's and it was the Beautyrest Recharge Pembroke Place Luxury Firm.  If this is the exact model you are looking to compare, there are many equivalents under different names.  On our site, the equivalent mattress is called the Beautyrest Recharge Gia Luxury Firm.  We list the foam layers on our site, as does Carson's and they match up exactly.  These two are the same mattresses under different names.  Our prices on www.sdmattress.com include delivery, setup, and old bedding removal for any Simmons Beautyrest set above $699.  Call us at 866-799-0048 if you have any questions on lead times or about the mattress.

Question From: Shari Montgomery. - February 28, 2015 - Hotel Mattress Comparison
Q. Hi! I have slept several times at a particular hotel chain; and I NEVER experience the discomfort and pain I do with other mattresses. Heavenly comfortable! I actually searched that hotel mattress info. Beautyrest Hospitality Collectors Edition 525 Pillowtop. Since getting a whole new mattress isn't feasible right now because of the cost, I am wondering if there would be a mattress topper equivalent to this mattress? I have no idea if I need firmer or softer or, or, or?! There are so many choices on the market, I honestly have no idea. I am a side & back sleeper with back and hip pain with my current mattress. Wake up with a bad headache most mornings. Hope you can help! I need some relief! Kind Regards, S Montgomery

Hi Shari,

Hip pain is a sign of a mattress that is too firm.  The 525 Pillowtop is 16" thick and a soft comfort level so adding a topper to your current bed will likely improve your sleep. For a topper, there are two options: memory foam and latex.  Memory foam feels firm at first but slowly conforms and gets softer while latex is the polar opposite.  In your case, I recommend the latex route.  a 2" latex topper will make your bed noticably softer and help relieve more pressure while you are side sleeping for long periods of time.

Question From: Mark Olsen. - February 24, 2015 - Hotel Mattress Comparison
Q. I have stayed at the Four Seasons properties in Hawaii and found the bed the most comfortable I have ever slept on. I know I can purchase the bed from the Four Seasons (Data She)., but they don't appear to sell a California King version.

My understanding is that the bed is made by Simmons, but when I contacted Simmons customer service, they weren't able to tell me what the commercially available equivalent is due to exclusive rights held by Four Seasons. Do you have any recommendations?

Hi Mark,

I'm not surprised Simmons didn't give the commercial equivalent for more reasons than just the exclusive nature of the hotel's line, but because it's a tricky comparison as well.  There are two topper options and you replied that the Plush topper is the version you were interested in.  That part is easy enough, but the coil system, not so much.  I called into the hospitality line and they weren't able to confirm the coil system in that bed from the hotel.  So that narrows it down to two beds.  The World Class Alexandria Plush or the World Class Alexandria Luxury Firm.  It will come down to testing in a showroom to determine which is the closest match but the differences between these two are noticable from the moment you sit on it.  At local stores, the name will not be Alexandria, but you can identify a similar World Class Beautyrest by its name alone.  Beautyrest Recharge World Class Plush or Beuatyrest Recharge World Class Luxury Firm.

Question From: M L. - February 23, 2015 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. Hi.. I have been in mattress nightmare..I have had 3 different memory foam beds in the past 2 years. I have lower back pain from a birth defect that now has arthritis. I had the tempura pedic cloud elite...too soft..still woke with pain. I then went to the Contour Elite...helped my lower back pain but now I have shoulder, hip and middle back pain..too firm.
I am a side/stomach sleeper.. I am looking at Sleepys since they are willing to sell me a bed at cost since I am beyond the 90 days to return the Elite.

I am afraid of memory foam and have slept in hotels and awake pain free.. they talked me into trying the Comfortpedic Phenom Plush 11" they haven't delivered it yet...it is on back order until friday..so of course I am researching everything.

Today I looked at the Serta I series Profile super pillow top firm and the Beautyrest World Class luxury super pillow top firm.

Which would you recommend. I found the iSeries the most comfortable but I am so concerned about the pillow tops sagging over time. And afraid the memory foam is just not for me.

Help!!!!!!

Hi Michelle,

The Serta mattress you are considering has ranked higher in the customer satisfaction category.  It shows from my own experience and also with Consumer Reports giving the best buy to an iSeries mattress two years in a row.  If the mattress you trade out to does not sleep comfortably for you, I highly recommend seeking the adjustable bases underneath.  If you can't get comfortable on any of the beds you listed, then changing the beds position is the only route left.  Also, if you ever sleep in recliners or on couches just fine, that is a big sign that adjustable bases will improve the quality of your sleep.
