Question From: TJ Bell. - November 12, 2014 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. Hello,
I don't like memory foam feel or gel foam... I don't like the sinking in feeling and find it hard to move around, as I change sleep positions frequently through out the night... I've been looking at the Alexia Xrta Firm, but it also has memory foam in the top layer. Any suggestions on beds that don't have a memory foam layer? A latex layer is okay... please advise! Thank you!

Hi TJ,

Memory foam is in a majority of coil/spring mattresses sold today.  In a model like the Beautyrest Black Alexia Extra Firm, sure it has a layer in the upholstery, but you won't feel the sinking feeling like you describe from an all foam mattress or any Plush/Pillow Top style mattresses.  The sinking feeling occurs when you get layer upon layer of memory foam in a mattress.  The Beautyrest Recharge Hybrids are the types of coil/spring mattresses you want to stay away from.  The memory foam in the Alexia will help the firm coils adapt and conform to you, but shouldn't give the mattress the memory foam feel.

Question From: Victoria Faerstein. - November 9, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. My husband and I have narrowed our mattress search down to the Serta iseries Vantage Plush and the Beautyrest Black Ava firm. I understand Serta owns both companies. Is the Beautyrest Black coil system, foam, gel, etc. really of higher quality? There is an $800 differential in price for the California King (we live in L.A.) which is fine if it's worth it. thank you!

Hi Victoria,

It's tru that Serta and Simmons are both somewhat related on the business ends of things.  Though Serta does not own Simmons, they are both under the same umbrella, so to speak.  This aside, the beds you are comparing have one difference to consider if they both feel pretty good when testing.  The Beautyrest Black Ava Luxury Firm bed has the triple wound cables inside which equates to more undisturbed rest.  You'll feel less of your sleep partner's movements during the night.  Each bed has some great qualities to them and the motion separation is the one that defines the biggest difference.  I don't think the price difference is quite as big as you mentioned from all places you can find the Beautyrest Black models.  The Cal King set to LA from our website is $2260.19 plus tax.  That price includes delivery, setup, and old bedding removal in about 2-3 weeks time.

Question From: Jan Berie. - November 6, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring

Hi Jan,

I am very familiar with the Gabby model.  We sold it with the TruEnergy line as well!  The Truenergy beds have been reintroduced.  The new version of the Gabby is called the Beautyrest Recharge Dakota Extra Firm.  The Gabby and the Dakota share the same thickness, coils, and evenloft flat surface.   These are true hybrid mattresses because they don't have anything but the AirCool memory foam in the upholstery layers. The Hybrid Beautyret beds are on display at locations all around the country.  Let me know your zip code and I can help you find one nearest you.

Question From: Faith VanDusen. - November 5, 2014 - Miscellaneous
Q. I can't believe that someone just had the same experience we did! My husband and I also just stayed at the Mandarin Oriental in San Francisco on Nov. 1st and absolutely loved the bed! I called the hotel today to find out the type of mattress and they told me it was a Simmons Beautyrest Emminence Plush Top...Any chance that you know anything about this mattress and what it is currently named? We desperately need to replace our mattress and this one is really the one we want. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Hi Faith!

That helps narrow it down to a select couple mattresses in the Simmons line.  Here are the two best comparables to the Eminence:

Beautyrest Recharge Gia Plush

Or

Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Plush

Depending on the mattress at the Mandarin, it will have one coil system or the other so either mattress in this case is a really close comparable.  There is also the Beautyrest Black Ava Plush which has the firmest of the three coil systems.  It's their latest line in luxury bedding and a good one to check out if you like the Plush's from Beautyrest.

Q. Have a warranty approval to replace my Simmons Natural Care Latex cal-king. We went and looked at a variety of Beautyrest and Beautyrest Black beds. I did not see much that would give me the support and latex that the Natural Care gave. Suggestions for us, we are side/back sleepers.

Hi Laura,

Beautyrest mattresses will have coils inside while your Natural Care does not.  I recommend finding/trying the Comfor-Pedic and Comfor-Pedic IQ beds.  They are all foam and will be more similar than the beds you've already tested.  The Natural Care you have(firm, plush, pillow top or drop top) will determine which comfort level to try.  The thicker mattresses are softer in the Comfor-Pedic and Comfor-Pedic IQ lines and the skinnier beds are firmer.  You can go to Simmons' website to use their dealer locater to see if there is a retail store near you to try a few of these out.

Hi Shellie,

The name Eminence isn't quite enough to nail down an exact comparison unfortunately.  Eminence has been used in several lines and for a lot of different beds.  I hit up Simmons for some information and they did not have anything difinitive to offer.  One helpful tip in the future is to always take a picture of the side of the mattress.  That way if we can't find specs, we can at least go by thickness for comfort level and fabrics for class.  World Class Beautyrest beds have different fabrics than the Classic Recharge beds so it's somewhat easy to narrow it down that way.  If they can send you a picture, we can go a little further to help.  I can also make a few recommendations based on what are in other hotels if you would like but it's a shot in the dark with out knowing more about the Eminence.

Hi Dwain,

The two beds you have found are not an apples to apples comparison.  They do share the Beautyrest Recharge World Class coil system in the guts, however, they differ from the rest of the design.  The Tori Ultra Plush bed is tufted, and has a layer of micro coils in the upholstery.  This is actually an exact match to the Beautyrest Recharge World Class Suri Ultra Plush Pillow Top on our website.  The Evonne model is a Hybrid bed and will feel dramatically different from the Tori/Suri bed.  The top is evenloft, flat quilting and the foam layers only consist of AirCool memory foam.  I couldn't tell from the Slumberland website which bed is 100% exactly equivalent, but based on price and thickness reported on the page, it looks like a match to our Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid Karina Plush.  The Tori/Suri will be a great deal softer than the Hybrid model.

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?

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.
