Question From: Rick Burk. - August 22, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. Hi,
I like the Beautyrest World Class Allegheny Plush at Sears. Is your Alexandria equivalent to this? I also liked the Serta iSeries Vantage Firm. I am a side and back sleeper who has some lower back pain, especially when a mattress starts to sag, but if it's too firm I get sore from the pressure at my shoulder and hip when sleeping on my side. Your advice/guidance is greatly appreciated.

Also, I love the thought of your 1 year in home trial, but my wife is concerned that the microplush mattress protector would be hot since it is waterproof. Do people find it to be hot?
Thanks.
A.

Hi Rick,

The Allegheny Plush is an equivalent to the Beautyrest World Class Recharge Alexandria Plush mattress on our website and others with the Alexandria name.  The iSeries Vantage Firm isn't really apples to apples to the Alexandria Plush.  There is also an iSeries Vantage Plush that has a comparable feel.  The plush comfort level is better for side sleeping with out a doubt.  Especially if you have sensitivity in your shoulders.

We've sold the Microplush protector with our Tempur-Pedics, iComforts, and Comfor-Pedic foam mattresses for years and we don't get heat complaints at all.  It does a great job protecting the mattress from moisture and also adds a luxury feel your sheets.

Hi Joe,


The Felicity bed is a World Class Beautyrest mattress.  I've seen a few versions in hotels over the years and every one I've seen has a pillow top on it.  The same exact mattress isn't sold by retailers like us.  You can buy the mattress directly from the hotels but it's usually several hundred dollars more for their exclusive mattress.  There are, however, close comparable beds at retailers like us.  Here's my comparable bed: Beautyrest World Class Recharge Alexandria Plush Pillowtop   You can find this particular bed at most retailers that carry Simmons Recharge World Class beds.  It's common because it's popular and Simmons has it featured in hotels in several versions.

Question From: Molly Serpa. - August 19, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. Hello, I am currently sleeping on a 100% (soft) latex bed that I need to replace after 10 years. I think I need more support due to shoulder, back and hip pain when I wake up. I am a side/stomach sleeper. I just tried the Serta iseries beds at Macy's and loved them. I liked the 'Island Retreat' firm which I understand is equivalent to the Vantage bed but I really preferred the Macy's branded 'Serene Retreat' cushion firm in the iseries Profiles line. Is there an equivalent to the Serene Retreat bed? I'm looking o buy a Cal-King size with good support but a little bit of surface cushioning and while I'm willing to pay for a good bed, I don't want to overpay. Would appreciate your advise on comparable beds to the iseries Serene Retreat. thank you.

Hi Molly,

The Profiles bed is available at other stores as well.  That one on our website and the official Serta website is called the iSeries Profiles Honoree Cushion Firm.   This mattress feels great for a firmer comfort level.  It's on display at all of our locations and our customers love it.  There is EverFeel foam in the top layers that gives it softer cushion than expected, but with a firm coil system beneath for a lot of support.  The current pricing with Serta's sale is $1774 queen set, or $2199 king set.  Prices includes shipping, delivery, setup, and no sales tax.

Question From: Tom C. - August 19, 2014 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. You're site is great and has saved me a lot of time doing comparisons. We just became members and my wife and I will purchase a new mattress within the next 30 days. I've narrowed the choices to 4 so I'd like your expert opinion on which you believe might be the best fit for us / best value for us. Our current mattress is very old and not very firm so any of these will be a major improvement and firmer than our current mattress. I'm 5-7 / 155lbs. while my wife is 5-6 / 120 lbs. and we're mainly side sleepers since I snore while on my back. No health issues other than soreness caused by our very old mattress.
1: Temper Cloud Supreme Breeze(11") - Level 6 Medium-Soft but is the spray on cooling application worth the additional cost over the Temper Cloud Supreme?
2: Select Foam Cirrus Supreme-ES(11") - Level 6 Medium-Soft and they highlight their Soy based cooling gel-infused materials instead of petroleum based. Great cost but is there real value in Soy based materials?
3: Comforpedic Renewed Energy(11.5") - Level 5 Medium-Firm and they highlight their AirCool TruTemp gel material. Is Medium-Firm a huge difference from Level 6 Medium-Soft?
4: Comforpedic Restored Spirits(13") - Level 6 Medium-Soft, more foam since it's 13" and Luxury Plush comfort level.
At a high level it appears Comforpedic offers a great value but I'd like to know what I'm missing, if anything, and which you feel might be best for us. Thank you.
A.

Hi Tom,

Of the beds you listed, the Cloud Supreme is the #1 mattress.  The breeze is only worth it for really hot sleepers.  I tried the Cloud Supreme Breeze in the showroom and the coolness wore off after approximately 2 hours of lying in the same spot(tough day at work that day!  But we need to know these things #productresearch).  We have had very few comfort returns on either Cloud Supreme.  They sleep great and last a really long time.   My own mattress is a Tempur-Pedic in it's 4th year and looks perfect like the day it was delivered.  


The other beds are great quality as well, but in my experience with the amount of satisfied customers we had with the Cloud Supreme over the last 5 years, that's the best route to go.  You could consider the Cloud Elite which is a little softer, like the #4 mattress in your post.

Question From: Dom Zampogna. - August 17, 2014 - Mattress Name/Price Comparison
Q. We are looking to buy a new queen sized mattress. After visiting several stores we felt the Beautyrest Recharge Shakespeare pillow top mattress (SI66955) felt the most to our liking. We settled on a deal at Sleepy's which included the mattress, box spring, frame, mattress cover, and tax for $900 even. Is this a good deal or should I be looking at a better bed for this kind of money. I am also picking up the bed to save the delivery charge. In my research there was a question about the number of coils not being as high as other similar mattresses. Also the reviews on this mattress have not been to optimistic and say the mattress tested at the store is different than what is delivered. Any insight you can give would be helpful as I have a few days to cancel the order. Thank you.
A.

Hi Dom,

That is a reasonable price for the mattress you got.  Sleepy's beds typically have an extra foam layer or extra coil to add a little to the value.  In some cases, they will be a few hundred more than a comparable bed but in this case I think you got it just around what you would pay anywhere else or from online retailers like us.

Hi Katie,

The Catskills and Stonebridge that you mention in your question are two different comfort levels. In this case, the Catskills has firm coils and the pillowtop while the Stonebridge will be softer because it has soft/plush coils. The Catskills is not a good buy. It does not mention memory foam in any of it's descriptions and was price above $1000 for a queen. The Stonebridge does mention memory foam so it compares closest to the Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Gia Plush Pillowtop on our own website.

Question From: Ingrid Purtell. - August 10, 2014 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. Hi, I am so overwhelmed by the amount of mattress info! I recently bought a simmons beautyrest stone bridge II pollowtop. I have only slept on it about 2 weeks but am thinking it is too firm. I bought it at sears after laying on tons of mattress this seemed to be most comfortable. I am a side sleeper and toss and turn most of the night. I don't even know the firmness level of this mattress and am wondering what you would recommend. I am thin, 5.6 at 110lbs and sometimes have joint and back issues. Help!

Thanks-Ingrid

Hi Ingrid,

I suggest giving it more time, at least 30 days if your comfort exchange window allows it.  There aren't many beds softer than the one you got.  The only way to go softer would be a thicker pillowtop or a foam mattress.  If after a month you are not sleeping good, then go back and ask for a thicker pillow top or foam.  Those may be a little bit more money but it's worth it if it brings you restful sleep at night.

Hi Bev,

The king size NuFlex bases are  76x80.  They may be 1" bigger in either direction because I have seen them not always fit inside beds that have potruding wood pieces like the slat holders or other functional pieces.  If you have a tight fit, I recommend the Tempur-Pedic bases or we also have some that come from Leggett & Platt that have legs further in and fit inside any existing headboard/footboard combo.  All of them regardless of brand have optional leg height options.

Question From: mike czako. - August 7, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. Hello! great site, very informative! We bought a Queen sized Simmons Beautyrest Vanderbilt Collection mattress from Macys maybe 5 years ago. We love the mattress and want to upgrade to the King size but it seems they discontinued this line/name. Do you know what the comparable contemporary model would be? On the tag of our current mattress it has a model number M17028.70.7423 and then has HMB OFF PT BR F under that. I do no know any of the specifics of the mattress; if it is a pillow top or euro top...or what coils..etc. We went to the retailer and layed on a bunch of mattresses and this one felt the best..I hope the above information helps you decode which exact mattress we have and you can point me in the right direction of the current model. Thanks so much, Mike

ps. I can email you pics of mattress/tags if that will help.

Hi Mike,

It looks like from the tag information you provided it's a pillowtop.  You will need to find a mattress that aesthetically looks the same on the outside except for fabric color/quilt pattern.  The current version is called the Beautyrest Recharge Plush Pillow Top.  It may be the Candace, or the Gia on our website but every store has a different name.  The bolded prhase is really the only part of the name that matters.  The Vanderbilt collection had a layer of memory foam in the upholstery in 9 out 10 cases so look for the Recharge beds that say AirCool Memory Foam and not plain jane AirCool Foam.  There is a difference.

Hi Carrie,

The Simmons Alexandria bed is a World Class Beautyrest.  The dimensions of the Twin and Full sizes will be the standard dimensions for all fulls and twins.  Twin size is 38" wide and 74" long.  Full size is 54" wide and 74" long.  The thickness will depend on which comfort level(firm,plush, or pillowtop) you choose.  The approximate height is listed on each mattress's individual web page in case you need to check for foundation/boxspring height.

The Platinum and Microplush mattress protector work the same.  They are waterproof protectors.  The Platinum model is invisible.  You won't know it's there.  The Microplush version has a very soft, delicate feel which enhances the sheets.  It's like putting padding under your carpet so to speak.  Both with keep the mattress clean of stains and moisture free.

Question From: Lauren M. - July 12, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. Hi, we are in the market for a new bed. We had decided on the beautyrest black evie luxury firm pillowtop but then popped into sleepys and was told that the Legend Plus series is a step above the black due to many factors including the coils. I liked how the legend felt however when doing research I am seeing conflicting reviews saying that the black is better and that sleepy's uses the fact that the legend is exclusive to them to get more money. In your opinion what is the better line to go with?
A. Hi Lauren,

I've done comparisons before on our blog about the Legends Beautyrest beds and in most cases, you can find a similar Beautyrest from a retailer other than Sleepy's and save a fortune. I...

Question From: Sandy Applegett. - July 10, 2014 - Miscellaneous
Q. Hi - I have a few questions: can you tell me which mattress would be most like the Serta mattress Hampton Inn uses? And, I have arthritis particularly in my hip and neck. Would a softer or firmer mattress be better? Finally, I was interested in the Serta iSeries Merit Super Pillow Top but read that pillow top mattresses "are at least two times more likely than non-pillow top mattresses to have problems with durability, off gassing, and heat retention." Do you find this to be true?
I hope thats not too many questions!

Hi Sandy,

I think your choice of mattress is spot on with what you would sleep on at the Hampton Inn. The Serta iSeries Merit Pillow Top is a better bed than the Hampton Inn's Serta mattress and the comfort level is slightly on the softer side but with arthritis and sore hips, it's the best model in the iSeries for what you need.

Pillow Tops do tend on the warmer side since there is approximately 6" of upholstery layers.  Pillow Top also give the most pressure relief so you toss and turn less, sleep in one spot for long periods of time, and moving less will make a spot warmer.  Serta has their Dual Action Gel Memory Foam in the upholstery to help dissipate heat inside the mattress so in terms of pillow tops, it's built to be a cooler version.  You can look up reviews for the iSeries Ceremony Pillow Top(last year's version).  The Ceremony model did really well in terms of durability.  It was out for 2+ years and few warranty issues have popped up. Off gassing isn't an issue with Serta either.   They meet Certi-Pur's standard for clean, greener foam.  Check out the Certi-Pur website for more info on their standards.

Hi Candy,

There is a bed very similar! The Lusaka Plush Pillowtop is a model Simmons has remade in the current World Class Recharge line. Here's our link: Beautyrest Recharge World Class Alexandria Plush Pillow Top.  The newer version has gel memory foam, breathable fabric, and ventilated edge support.  The newer models are built with cooler sleeping in mind.  That's been the trend the last few years.  The comfort level, coil density, and overall feel are still the same.  This model is showcased frequently at showrooms across the nation.  Go to Simmons.com and punch in your zip code to the dealer locater to find a retailer with the Beautyrest Recharge World Class line near you to give it a try.
