Question From: Antonio c. - October 28, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. my wife and I were just at sleepy's and we loved the beautyrest legend firm in queen. I was able to negotiate a price down to $2050. I haven't finalized my purchase, I put down a deposit. I also let them know that we are looking at sleep number beds. Please advise on the following questions:
1. Am I paying?
2. is the black series identical to the beautyrest?
3. is the black series cheaper?
4. what are you opinions on the sleep number beds?

Thank you,
antonio

You are undoubtedly paying.  Reading the price you are quoted nearly cause my jaw to hit the floor.  Here's why.  They use a 900 coil density coil unit, and the foam layers are the same as World Class beds with one exception, their slow response latex.  If you compare the Legends bed to their premium lines, the latest and greatest, you'll find better options at any other store.  For example:

Beautyrest Recharge World Class Hybrid Dakota Firm  $1,399 queen set 

Beautyrest Black Alexia Extra Firm Special pricing, add to your shopping cart for a quote.

These are premium firm comfort levels from Simmons with higher coil counts and equal, if not better, foam layer specs and both options come in way under what you would pay at Sleepy's.  Our prices include delivery, setup, no sales tax(except in NC and CA), and old bedding removal.  We also offer a comfort exchange within the first 120 nights which costs $150 for shipping fees.  

The Hybrid model is flat topped as some Legends beds are and only has AirCool memory foam layers in the upholstery.  No poly's which I see on the Legend beds of similar thickness.

Sleep number beds have fans out there who swear by them.  Our experience with air beds from Comfort Aire and similar styles has not been the greatest.  If your pump or air chamber quits working @ 2am, it's not an ideal time to have to start fixing your bed and repairs are not always the quickest.  We carry Tempur-Pedic Choice beds and have had little issues with them but the difference is they are preassmbled and the motors/chambers are built in a unique way.  Just be wary with beds that have the pumps/hoses that they may require some maintenance a regular mattress would not.

Question From: Kerri McHale. - October 28, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. I recently purchased a Simmons Recharge World Class Ocean Hill Firm mattress from Slumberland. Needless to say, the mattress was a brick when it arrived and nothing like the display model. I have a herniated disk and after 1 night on this mattress, my back has been inflamed and spasming ever since. I tried it for 5 weeks, while on medication, and decided to do a comfort swap. I changed to the same model but the plush version. I originally did not purchase the plush because it felt like a hammock in the store but again, was quite firm upon delivery and I'm still struggling with pain. I have two questions: Do you have a recommendation for a person of 115 pounds, back sleeper (when not in pain) and only one on the bed with a herniated L5 disk? Second, I purchased a Simmons Ali Plush Pillowtop in 2012 and it's at my Mom's. I was able to sleep on this mattress day one and have never had an issue. Is there a Simmons mattress that corresponds to this particular model? The model number is M44768.20.7803.
Thanks so much for any suggestions and love the site! Incredibly helpful!

Hi Kerri,

We don't even put the Beautyrest Recharge World Class model on the floor because of cases like these.  I find that somebody tries it for a few minutes has no issue, but a whole night is unbearable.  The World Class Extra Firm comfort level is our #1 most frequently comfort swapped bed.  The plush sounds like it's a step in the right direction at least.  Though you mention your mom's pillow top mattress which is even a step softer than the plush you already have.  I can't find the Ali specs online or on our website from previous posts.  If you get me a picture of it, I can likely place if it is a Classic or World Class Beautyrest model and can help narrow down what it is in today's line up.  See if you can get a picture of the sides, the top, and any tags like the law label @ the head of the bed and a satin ID label that is sewn to one side near the foot.

Question From: Hazel Chan. - October 27, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. I bought from Macy's the Beautyrest Recharge Castleton Eastern King size mattress. The mattress was delivered to my home yesterday and I realized today that the label affixed to the mattress reads BeautyRest Vanderbilt Collection and not the Recharge Collection. Are they the same? I tried to research online but I can't seen to find much about the connection between the Vanderbilt and the recharge collection. Is Vanderbilt the old version of the recharge collection and therefore they are giving me a mattress that is from their old inventory? The pattern on the mattress also doesn't look quite like the one I tried in the store. Help!

If it says Castleton on it, I think it's the right mattress.  Macy's line of Beautyrests has always been the Vanderbilt line.  Fabric patterns don't always start and stop at the same spot, but the color/design should be consistent with what you bought.  Take pictures and go compare to what you saw in the store to be certain.

Beautyrest Recharge refers to the Classic Simmons Beautyrest line up.  The mattress you received is definitely a Recharge bed by Simmons.  It's just labeled in a different fashion.  Macy's is a huge retailer so they get their own line name and unique model names.

Hi Rebecca,

The Serta iSeries Vantage Firm mattress is about as firm as you can go before side sleeping starts to get really uncomfortable over the course of hours.   We have not had many warranty type issues with the iSeries whether it be the Vantage Firm or the Serta iSeries Merit Super Pillow Top.  But just in case, I highly recommend as much support under the mattress as possible.  King sizes, these KPL's are the best if you have a bed already or an Edge Bedframe if you need the frame.  The more legs the less likely you will see sagging on either side.

Hi Ann,

I don't have the exact specs of the Constellation Lane, Crescent Moon collection, but I did find a wee bit of info.  The closest we have is on our website under  the Serta Perfect Sleeper collection called the Haverton.  There is a Firm, Plush(medium), and Pillow Top(soft) comfort level of the Haverton which would take some matching up on your part.  We can help if you provide a picture of the mattress with no covers/sheets on it.  Thickness and stitching are dead give aways to comfort level if the Constellation Lane doesn't say something like Firm, Plush, Pillow Top, or Eurotop.

It did not appear that the Constellation model had individually pocketed coils.  It has the continous coil system inside which is a little bouncier when you and your sleep partner move during the night.  The Haverton's will keep you from feeling each other get in and out of bed, or moving in general through out the night.

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for the question!  The difference in the Shakespeare Luxury Firm model and the World Class Shakespeare Luxury Firm is the coils.  The first mattress has 800 in a queen size, the second goes up to 1000 and feels firmer as a result.  Higher coil counts, like in the World Class beds, will keep you from feeling a sleep partner get in and out of bed or shift around at night.  Thats the biggest benifit.  The Monument Valley Luxury Firm is closest comparable to the Beautyrest Recharge Shakespeare Luxury Firm but they are not equivalent.  For starters, the Sleepy's beds have blended latex in the upholstery instead of the aircool memory foam.  Sleepy's loves to use this loop hole to get around their price guarantee if you buy it and then find it for less.

The Shakespeare Luxury Firm on our website is a comparable to the Beautyrest Recharge Gia Luxury Firm while the Monument model is exactly our Beautyrest Recharge Phoebe Luxury Firm.  The latter of these comparisons is the better mattress with a thicker layer of memory foam in the upholstery.

Hi Hope,

The mattresses you are comparing are similar in many ways.  They are both Pocketed Coil mattresses with similar coil counts and features like memory foam and gel.  It's more up to which you thought felt more comfortable or stuck out because the two beds are eye to eye but from different brands.  I'm not finding prices quite as low as $1199 for the Sonora model on Macy's website but that is a good price for it.  Our equivalent model is the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Luxury Firm Pillow Top which we list for $1169 Queen Set including delivery, setup, old bedding removal, and no sales tax except in NC and CA.

Question From: Colette Collins. - October 12, 2014 - Mattress Name/Price Comparison

Hi Collette,

I cannot find the specs for the Hope To Dream model either.  Unfortunately it's a private label brand that Ashley uses.  But be careful.  If it's discontinued in stores, it may not be available online even though you can find it on a website.  100% call ahead to be certain if you do choose to buy that mattress that it's still in production or in stock.

In the Simmons line, there are often model names with the suffix I, or II.  The 2nd version is always a little more expensive and had extra features, the most common one being thicker memory foam layers inside the bed.  Beds don't stay around forever though.  Normally after a 2 year period, manufacturer's will re-release the beds they carry to upgrade to the latest innovations in the mattress inudustry.

Hi Tim,

I think that particular mattress is over priced and not that great for master bedrooms.  Right off the bat, the coil count is not that great.  We have a mattress that is a very close comparable called the Stanton Pillowtop on our own website that is $80 less.  You could find the same thing or better for less.  I highly recommend a pocketed coil mattress if it's for every night use and for 2 sleepers.  The pocketed coil beds don't bounce as much, they don't squeak, and they are much more supportive.  The coil counts naturally get higher  as well.  The starting line up on our site is the Encore Pillowtop.

On the issue of sagging, I googled the name in a few different ways and was not able to find any solid wall of negative reviews on this bed.  The reviews I found were mostly positive and a few negatives out of 130 or so on the main website.

Question From: Yvonne Engelman. - October 5, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. My daughter is considering purchasing the Serta iSeries Vantage Plush mattress, possibly without the box spring. What do you recommend she look for when purchasing a bed or bed frame? (A previous reader asked Andrew about a Vantage Plush that developed ruts, and he indicated that it's important to have a bed with proper support, to prevent that problem.) Her budget is limited, so she would be likely wanting something inexpensive; she might consider a bed from Ikea—there is one called Malm that has slats, not a solid platform—would something that work well? It may also help to note, my daughter has a wood floor in her bedroom, so she would want to avoid a frame that could scratch the floor. Thanks!

CLICK HERE to see the video response to your question.

Hi Yvonne,

If your daughter is looking at beds for the Sertia iSeries Vantage Plush, keep this information in mind to know what will work and what will not.  

Platform beds that do not require box springs will need 10+ slats.  The slats can be no further than 3" apart and the bigger the better.  If the slats aren't thick, add a bunkie board.  For queen and king sizes, beds with more support legs are better.  

For a non-platform bed, queen sizes require 3-5 slats and at least 1 leg per slat.  We recommned 5 slats and 2 legs for each slat.  These EL2-18's will do the trick.  Or for the king size, 4-5 slats with at least 2 legs per slat.  If the bed only has 1 center leg on a king size, sagging will not be a big surprise.  Four of these KPL's do the trick.

If you aren't sure, e-mail us back with a picture of what she is considering and we can weigh in and help you out.  It doesn't matter if the bed is from our store or not, the advice is always free.

The Legends beds are over priced.  You can compare their specs to the Beautyrest Hybrid beds or other World Class and Beautyrest Black models and you'll find better prices for more value.  I've seen the Heavenly Bed's inflated king price for years.  If you aren't on a time crunch, I think you could save some money by checking on a few more Beautyrest retailers in your area.  I know it can be hard to walk out of a Sleepy's when they drastically discount a mattress you want, but they started at an unreal sale price and you aren't actually getting the deal they make it out to be.

Hi Vivian,

It's difficult to find specific information on that particular bed.  We have not sold Sealy in the past so our records don't cover there lines as closely as Simmons Beautyrest and Serta.  What I did find is that it's a innerspring coil bed, not a pocketed coil style.  The best way to go about trying to find a similar mattress would be to start with other Plush mattresses either from Sealy or other brands.  What you'll find is the more coils in the mattress, the firmer the bed will be.  To get a close comparison, you will want to stick to lower coil counts between 600-800 in a queen.  That keeps you in the relitive ballpark and gives you options.  Examples of these qualifications on our own website is something like the Beautyrest Recharge Candace Plush( 800 coil count), the Serta Perfect Sleeper Haverton Plush(800), or the Southerland Encore Plush (600).

Hi Mark,

Click Here to view the video response to your question. 

Before making a recommendation for what your next step should be, we need a little more information about the bed or bedframe your Serta iSeries Vantage Plush is on.  Certain bed frames or insufficient support can cause the issue of sagging much faster than normal.  Send us pictures of what you have underneath your bed and with that, we can make a recommendation on whether it's the mattress or not and if you should get a different bed altogether.
