Hi Cheryle,

The Driscoll Beautyrest is still around but under different names.  It's very similar to the Candace models on our website.  CLICK HERE to see the different comfort levels the Beautyrest Recharge Candace model is available in.  The only difference between these beds and the Driscoll is that the newer beds have enhancements with airflow in the fabrics, foam encasement(edge support), and the foam layers.

Question From: Lisa Melvin. - May 23, 2015 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. My husband and I are very overweight and that last bed we bought 1.5 years ago is basically junk as the sides blew out and e practically roll out if the bed. We have stayed at a few LaQuinta Hotels in the last year and we have always had an amazing nights sleep. I looked at the tag and it reads Beauryrest Classic Pillowtop 525. What can you tell me about thus mattress, we love that that sides are so durable and don't appear as they'd break down. Please advise.

Hi Lisa,

I've seen that bed before when I travel.  It's most similar to our Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Phoebe Plush Pillow Top.   The 525 Pillow Top and the Phoebe Plush Pillow Top are the super plush's of the Classic line.  They share the same coil system and foam layers.  

I can't stress enough that you should also asses the support underneath your mattress.  Simple $69 bedframes do not cut it for master bedroom beds.  If you don't have 2-3 legs under each slat of your frame, then more support will ensure your mattress lasts.

Q. I'm looking at the beauty rest legend luxury plush pillow top for $2,400 vs the beauty rest black evie for 2,500.... Can you tell me which is the better mattress? We r both side sleeps and my husband is 6'2 and 240lbs so we'd like a soft bed but still has support. Thank you!

Hi Jenny,

I recommend the Beautyrest Black Evie Plush Pillow Top.  Legens beds are unique to Sleepy's and grossly over priced.  The coil system in the Legends bed is similar to a Classic Beautyrest while the Beautyrest Black has the best coil system Simmons makes.  You can cross compare the Legends beds to the Beautyrest Hybrids and find a steal.

Q. we have a Beautyrest black 'Rosalyn" and have a warranty claim to replace it it is 8 yrs old i have lupus and sleep is critical i am in bed ALOT i love this bed what is the newest Beautyrest Black that would match up by specs to this bed i sure don't want to get a different bed as i love this one but there are a few really nice blacks out right now and they also recommended us to the Serta Savant which is rather comfortable but not sure how long it will be comfortable for because when i get home and lay on our bed it feels so awesome i forget how the savant felt at the store obviously with the motion base it is amazing but that ups the price substantially can you help me slept deprived and ready to buy our 3rd beauty rest plush pillow top the first was the 100th anniversary double pillow top silk gorgeous SUPER comfortable but movers damaged it on a cross country military move so after 10 yrs we replaced with this one and now only 1 week away from our 21st wedding anniversary we must replace our bed again HELP!!

Hi Annette,

If you were staying in the Beautyrest Black line, the best and closest comparison to your Beautyrest Black Rosalyn Pillow Top is called the Beautyrest Black Kate Plush Pillow Top.   This has the same comfort as the Rosalyn.  The Rosalyn had latex in the upholstery making that pillow top a very soft comfort level.  The Kate doesn't have the latex, but it does have AirCool memory foam and micro coils to reach that same comfort level.

The Serta iComfort Savant adjustable bed is also a great alternative.  If you are side sleeping all night, the all foam mattress is great if you find the feel fairly comfortable to you in the store.  These are both very good options for your needs.

Hi Skye,

The Alcove Hybrid Plush model is a unique Beautyrest Black bed to Mattress Firm.  The closest comparable in the national line up is called the Beautyrest Black Ava Plush mattress.  The key difference to the Alcove and Ava is the evenloft top.  Evenloft is the hybrid style which looks like a memory foam mattress but has the feel of both memory foam and coils.  

Beyond the quilting, they are very similar in the guts both in foam layers and the coil system.

Hi Diana,

Sorry to hear about the shopping experience you had.  That particular mattress is a new Beautyrest model that Simmons is releasing.  Some showrooms have them out but they aren't totally rolled out yet.  With Memorial Day events coming up, some retailers are using what has been out for the last 2 years.  That mattress you linked called the Nordale will be avaialble at most retailers.  We will have our own coming out under a different name called the Beautyrest Recharge Audrina.  You'll just need to match up the comfort level of Firm, Luxury Firm, Plush, Luxury Firm Pillow Top, and Plush Pillow Top.  I can provide the specs of the exact mattress you are considering and pricing including delivery, setup, old bedding removal, and no sales tax.

Hi Celeste,

Thanks for your submission!  The Beautyrest Black Mia Plush was replaced in the current line up by the Beautyrest Black Ava Plush.  They share the same coil system and foam layers, except the Ava Plush has the Recharge benefits with gel touch memory foam and more ventilation built into it to regulate body temperature better than the previous Beautyrest Black models.  We have really great prices on our Beautyrest Black line models over the next few weeks for Memorial Day.  Call us toll free at 866-799-0048 for details or for pricing, put the size mattress and box springs you need in the shopping cart.

Hi Laura,

The Sweet Dreams mattress!  I frequently get calls about this bed.  It ends up being a very coincidental name.  I've stayed on the Sweet Dreams mattress at the Double Tree when my brother got married so I have experience with it's comfort level and design.  Comparing it to the iSeries and iComfort line up, it's most simlar to the Serta iSeries Vantage Plush and the Serta iComfort Savant Everfeel mattress.  These are both medium-soft comfort levels consistent with the Sweet Dreams bed.  The Savant has some big accredations from Consumer Reports being the leader in consumer best buy in it's category.  Try these two at your local Serta retailer and let us know what you think.  We can help price compare as well.  Feel free to call us anytime at 866-799-0048.  Our advice is always free.

Q. My husband and I wake up with aching beds. We tried traditional semi firm but those are older now. We recently tried foam, which is better for me but worse for him. We've considered a "sleep number" kind of technology to find softer and harder.

Hi Karen,

I don't recommend any air mattress whether it be Comfort Air or Sleep # beds.  We gave the Tempur-Choice beds a shot as well but in the end, hoses and pumps are not as reliable as a mattress that has no hoses and pumps.  Based on the information you provided, I suggest going to a retail store and trying the traditional Semi-Soft comfort level.   It's called Plush by most of the brands and not just any plush, a Pocketed Coil plush.  Pocketed coil beds are a type of traditional mattress but give superior support and motion separation to the innerpsring coils that bounce a lot, transfer motion, and have a tendancy to Squeak.  We feature pocketed coil brands like Serta and Simmons at our showrooms.

Question From: Bea Portillo. - May 7, 2015 - Sealy/Innerspring
Q. Hi,
I've been trying to get the best mattress for my mom who suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have heard 2 different answers regarding what type is best for her. At sleepy's the salesperson suggested the Sealy Hybrid Posturepedic Encourage Plush, which is something on the soft side. Another salesperson at JCP, who used to work at an orthopedic clinic advised that most doctors would suggest their clients with Arthritis a mattress that was a little more firm. So he suggest the Sealy Hybrid Posturepedic Ability Firm Mattress. Help!!!! I'm confused and want something that's going to help her get a good night rest and not have her wake up with achy bones. Your advise is greatly appreciated. Bea

Hi Bea,

Any relation to the Portillo family in the Chicago land area??  My sister Katy and I are from the midwest and we miss Portillos often!  Not the snow and ice, but the hotdogs a italian beef for sure!!

Both sales people are on the right track but they fail to ask important questions like how does your mother sleep??(side, back, stomach)  Other than the arthritis, what aches and pains does she wake up with or is she having back issues after a night's rest?  And what kind of mattress(firm, medium, soft, foam, coils?) is she sleeping on now.  Back and stomach sleepers would likely do better on the firmer option while side sleepers would need the softer option for sure.  Each mattress you listed is a good bed, just not for everybody.

Hi Wayne,

I've got the solution for you and it's pretty easy.  Get some furniture gliders.  Thin, round disks that you put under the legs of a heavy piece of furniture to glide it.  I've used them under the heaviest beds we sell to rotate them for customers in the past.  I was able to rotate a king latex bed that was nearly 300 lbs. using the disks.  Put one under each corner and it should spin a lot easier than before.

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,

» Read more

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.
