Hello Merlene,

Simmons does not make removable covers for their Beautyrest models sold to the public.  They do make the removable covers for Hotel chains, but those beds are not available to the public or regular Beautyrest retailers.

You can use a waterproof mattress protector(or 2 to be extra thurough) to keep moisture, molds, mildews, and dust mites from growing inside the mattress.  You would never need to clean your mattress with at least one of these covers.

Here is a link to our mattress protectors which come in a good, better, best.  The Platinum is good, microplush is better with a more luxurious feel, and the invisicase is the best because it encases the entire mattress.  They work great to keep the mattress clean over years of use.

Question From: Doug Law. - April 15, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. I have a king Applause plush but find it too soft for me (side sleeper), my hips sink in and can cause a bit of back pain the next morning. I was going to try the Applause firm but that has been superseded by the Vantage. In looking at the limited information available on the Vantage it seems as the plush & firm may be a bit firmer than the Applause models. So, I am not sure whether the Vantage firm would be a good choice for me. Could you give me any guidance between the models.
A.

Hi Doug,


The newer models are a touch firmer, just like you read.  Last year's Consumer Reports recommended Serta iSeries Applause Plush was recently reintroduced as the Serta iSeries Vantage Plush.  The Vantage model has a higher coil count which gives it the firmer feel.  If you haven't tried it in the store yet, I suggest giving that a shot.  Test it out on your side for a good 10 minutes and see how you feel and how your back feels.   You can get your wife to look at you back/spinal alignment at home while you are on the Applause Plush and compare it to how it looks while you are on the Vantage Plush.  After testing the Vantage Plush, you can make a more informed decision on whether the Vantage Firm will be too firm for you.

Question From: Renee Wood. - April 12, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring, Serta/Innerspring
Q. Hello - We are in the market for a new mattress. We currently own a Simmons Atkins X Firm Cal. King. It is 5.5 years old and has developed 2 deep depressions. The store we purchased the set from has suggested 3 different mattresses: Simmons Ava Lux Firm Black,
Simmons Lorraine Lux Firm World Class and Sealy Post. Freehold. Which mattress do you think will be more durable than the one we currently own? I dont mind spending more money if the value is there. We dont want to have to purchase another set in 5 years! Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi Renee,

For the type of mattress you are looking for, my top recommendation is the Serta iSeries Vantage Firm.  You may need to check a different retailer to find this mattress but it would be worth the trip.  The Vantage Firm is great quality and will not give you the impression problem in a short 5 years.

Hi Brandon,

Those Beautyrest beds are close equivalent but not exactly the same.  The Shakespeare models from Sleepy's have some unique feature to make them different from all other Beautyrests sold at other retailers.  Otherwise, they will be extremely closely comparable.  I recommend going with the retailer quoting a lower price and that  has a better exchange/service guarantee.

Question From: Robert Scott. - April 6, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. I'm a side sleeper and deciding between the older Black Temptation ultra plush pillowtop and the Black Margaret plush pillowtop. I'm concerned about the amount of possible sag and/or longevity of the Black Temptation. Would you think the Margaret would hold up longer since its slightly more firm and a newer design? Thanks Robert

Hi Robert,

The Margaret and The Temptation, though both Beautyrest Black models, aren't quite the same.  The Margaret model has a single layer of memory foam(approximately 1.5" thick) while the Temptation had 4" of memory foam and latex in the upholstery.  The Temptation has been out of production for a long time so I can't speak of a refurbished or floor sample's wear and durability at this point.  But the Temptation is the better bed comparing just these two.

Question From: E Cory. - April 6, 2014 - Miscellaneous
Q. I have been through a mattress nightmare and hope you can help. In the quest for the perfect mattress I bought a
simmons "heavenly bed" equivalent about 5 years ago.....I had visited at least 30 stores and tried hundreds of mattresses and thought I would like it-but in one night i knew i had made a horrible mistake. It was too soft and I had back and hip pain for a few years but didn't want to break down and buy another mattress......finally couldn't stand it any longer and bought a Temperpedic cloud....I've been on it about 40 days and I really don't like it either-I still have hip pain and not sleeping well. I am afraid of Simmons after my experience, but wonder if the technology has changed and perhaps a more expensive Simmons might give me the right amount of support and comfort. In addition, I slept on a Serta in a Homewood Suites motel and thought it was comfortable-but no one was ever able to tell me which Serta that was! What advice would you give me? It seems that trying a mattress for l5 minutes in a store isn't enough-and yet after one night you definitely know if this is the right mattress
A.

Hi Cory,

There are two beds similar to the one you tried at the hotel.  Here they are ion our website:

Serta Perfect Sleeper Haverton Plush

Serta iSeries Vantage Plush 

 The bed you tried is likely the Haverton Plush.  The Vantage Plush is an upgrade with more coils and upgraded cool gel memory foam in the upholstery.  Unlike the pillow top type mattress, the plush comfort level keeps your body more on top of the mattress and is more supportive for the lumbar area.  These are some good options for a long term mattress.

Question From: Tina Miller. - March 28, 2014 - Beautyrest/ Innerspring
Q. I got a king Lusaka plush/firm from you in 2007. It has been great until recently. I am a side/back sleeper and have begun waking at night with side pain. The mattress has gotten indentations over time. I'm 60 years old and wondering if I should get a new comparable mattress from you. Could the indentations be causing the pain and what do you have now that is comparable?

Hi Tina,

We'll send you a warranty packet in your e-mail that you can fill out for your mattress.  If you can get approved, they'll be able to replace your mattress for a current day equivalent.  If it's not approved, come see about a new one for certain and we'll see what we can do.

A lot of things have changed since 2007.  One of the best beds you can try is the Serta iSeries Vantage Firm which is very similar in overall design to the Lusaka Plush Firm, only with cool gel memory foam and Tencel fabric to help regulate body surface tempurature while you sleep.

Question From: Debbie Auchland. - March 27, 2014 - Serta/Innerspring
Q. Which is better for my back the Serta iComfort or the Serta iSeries Hybrid mattresses? Do all of the iSeries have Everfeel Foam in them and what is the difference between Everfeel and and gel memory foam? My husband has a bad back and likes firm and is a stomach-back-sleeper. I am a side sleeper and I like soft, but I know I don't want the sleep number because of the ridge down the middle of them. Which model do you recommend?

Hi Debbie,

Thanks for your question!  Both the iSeries and iComfort mattresses offer a lot of support.  It really boils down to picking the right one to fit you and your husband's sleeping styles.  To answer your questions about the foam, EverFeel is a new introduction to the bedding world this year.  It's a quick responding memory foam and has a very gentle feel to it.  Serta uses it in their iSeries Profiles beds.  It's different from the Dual Action Gel Memory Foam in a few ways.  The Gel Memory foam is slower to respond and still somewhat heat activated.  The firmer Gel memory foam is deeper in the upholstery for firm support above the coils.

The iComfort Savant Everfeel mattress is ideal for you and your husband.  The memory foam iComfort mattresses are great for side sleeping.  The Savant is the right kind of medium firmness that should be great for your husband's sleep positions as well.  If you want to try the coil spring models, the iSeries Honoree Super Pillowtop.  The gel memory foam and everfeel will be the great for you sleep styles as well.

Hi Juan,

The iSeries Vantage Firm and the iSeries Island Retreat are equivalent mattresses.  They share the same coil system and foam layers in the upholstery.  Macy's gets unique names for their Serta line since they are a giant retailer for Serta.  It looks like their sale price is $1449 for a queen but the Vantage Firm everywhere I look is $1299.  That Island Retreat model is over priced, even after they reduced it down from $2000 something.  It is likely done that way to get their customers to sign up for a Macy's Visa card for a 10% discount.   Definitely not a deal on the Macy's website.

Question From: Michelle cohan. - March 25, 2014 - How to Choose The Right Mattress
Q. Hello, I recently bought a Night Therapy spring mattress from Sams after years of waffling about which bed to buy. Unfortunately, it's too firm and in more pain then my old mattress. I should have gone with the Heavenly bed sub from your site. I will now test out a bed at a Westin before buying. The Night Therapy bed did not need a boxspring because the bed frame that came with it is all it needed. Can I use the mattress as a box spring for another mattress? I don't want to waste the cost of the mattress I just bought.

Hi Michelle,

You will need to check the support from your current frame.  If the frame it came with is a firm platform, not squishy or springy, it would work fine for a mattress only from either Simmons or Serta.  I must emphasize that it needs to be a firm platform.

If you try and like the Westin Heavenly Bed, we have two that fit the bill for close comparables.  The Simmons mattress currently available is  called the Beautyrest Recharge Candace Plush Pillowtop.  We also carry a new Serta equivalent called the Serta Perfect Sleeper Haverton Pillowtop.  These are both Medium Firm pillowtops about 13" thick with pocketed coils.

Hi Cheryl,

The adjustable bases you have should be sufficient for the Comfor-Pedic Renewed Energy  mattresses. The NuFlex is the Simmons brand option if you were to need the bases but all adjustable bases will be a firm platform when flat.  The Renewed Energy is a great mattress for the motion bases.  It's very malleable and adjusts easily.  If you need two XL Twins, Call us toll free for a discount shipping rate for 2 mattresses to the same house hold. You can reach us at 866-799-0048.
