Simmons Beautyrest Comfort Scale®

The Simmons 10 Point Scale: It's Easy to Use

Simmons mattresses are categorized on the 10 point Comfort Scale®. It's important to understand the difference between support and comfort, as the comfort of a mattress is unrelated to the support your body receives from the inner structure.

1: The Firmest Mattresses

A Simmons mattress with a rating of 1 is designed for sleepers who are looking for the firmest mattress possible. If you enjoy a rigid feeling of support with very little cushioning, then a Simmons mattress with a rating of 1 is a good idea for you

2 to 4: Firm to Medium-Firm

If you have no problem sleeping comfortably on your living room floor, and you don't wake up with aches and pains, then a Simmons mattress with a Comfort Scale rating of 2 would be ideal for you. If you enjoy a firm overall feel with some cushioning for a softer initial impact, then you'll feel most satisfied on a Simmons with a rating of 3 or 4.

4.5 to 6.5: Mid-Range, a Good Compromise

Simmons Mattresses in this category are great if you are in-between the other comfort ratings or if your partner and you prefer opposite ends of the Comfort Scale. Mattresses in this range make a great "compromise" mattress. If you just don't have a preference, then a Comfort Scale rating of 4.5 to 6.5 is a good choice for you.

7 to 9: Conforming Softness

Do you find yourself trying to increase the softness of your current mattress with a down feather mattress pad? Do you love the way a waterbed feels? If so, you'll find the most satisfaction in a Simmons mattress with a Comfort Scale rating of 7 to 9. These beds are very soft. They are usually pillow tops, but some plush beds can be in this category too.

10: Super Soft

A Simmons mattress with a rating of 10 is designed for sleepers who really enjoy sinking into a mattress. If you're looking for the softest mattress you can find, shop for Simmons models with this rating.
