Beautyrest Black K-Class Mattress Collection Overview

There are core features in the K-Class that this collection shares with the rest of the Beautyrest Black collections. This collection is only for people who like an extra firm mattress or a plush mattress.

All of the mattresses use the Zoned T3 Pocketed Coil design spring system.  The coil design is Beautyrest's most advanced and they only offer it on their luxury Black mattresses.

Also, these mattresses use a top foam layer they call BlackICE with Plant-Based Cooling technology.  This material is the latest in cooling technology. If you put your hand on the mattress you can actually feel the cooling ability.  A cool mattress is important to sleeping well.

The K-Class also has another layer of advanced cooling technology called SurfaceTouch™ Gel Memory Foam. The formulation in RightTemp does, as the name suggests, help maintain an ideal sleeping temperature.

What really makes the K-Class Collection unique in its features is a layer of nano-coils.  This layer of small coils helps to give luxurious conforming and support working together with rich layers of super soft foams.  And being the top of the line from Beautyrest, they've used a generous amount of materials in these three mattresses, so they're taller than average ranging from 15.75" all the way up to 16.5" tall.

More About the Beautyrest Black Brand

Beautyrest Black is a brand produced by Simmons Bedding Company, which has been a leader in mattress manufacturing for over 100 years. Their Beautyrest Black luxury brand has been sold for many years. As for the parent company Simmons, many people remember the “bowling ball” commercial where a bowling ball was dropped on a mattress to highlight their pocketed coils (a glass of wine would sit undisturbed when the ball bounced on the other side of the bed.)

In recent years Simmons merged with Serta into the Serta Simmons Bedding Company, making them one of the two largest mattress companies in the world (Tempur-Sealy is the other.)  Simmons now markets the Black, Platinum, Silver, and Beautyrest mattress collections.  Their latest addition has been the Simmons bed-in-a-box, two models that are designed to be shipped directly to the customer from the plant.

Being a large manufacturer, Simmons engineers and makes many of its own components in addition to manufacturing. With their longevity and size, they have accumulated a lot of experience and knowledge making mattresses. Simmons makes millions of mattresses each year and they’ve maintained a positive reputation over the long run. While some review sites call out consumer complaints, those sites fail to provide the context that there are tens of millions of customers sleeping on Beautyrest mattresses. And all taken altogether Simmons Beautyrest has a highly positive customer reputation.

What's New

We took a look at what changed from the previous models in the K-Class collection. The new models use SurfaceTouch Gel Memory Foam as well as Alpaca, Cashmere, and Silk Fibers in the comfort layers.  The new collection does not have a medium model.

Conclusion

The K-Class is the top of the line from Beautyrest Black.  There are two mattresses in the collection that offer a decent range in feels from firmer to softer, so there is a model that can appeal to most people's sleeping preferences.  The beds are richly appointed with premium materials and are very tall because of this.

The top of these mattresses has the first key featured material, BlackICE with Plant-Based Cooling Technology, which helps to keep you cool as you lay down and drift off to sleep.  A cool bed is very important to get a good night's rest. If your bed is hot it is hard to get the deep sleep your body needs. The two mattresses are pillow-top mattresses 

The K-Class also has a layer of RightTemp™ memory foam.   This also helps to keep the mattress cool while you sleep. SurfaceTouch™ Gel Memory Foam is the latest in cooling and contouring memory foam and each bed has a 3/4" layer.

A layer of nano-coils is unique to this collection.  Usually found in luxury mattresses like these, the small springs help provide their own kind of contouring support working together with the other foam layers to provide pressure relief.

The K-Collection is their top line, and therefore, so is the price.  You can get high-quality beds for less, even from the other Black collections, so why buy this mattress?  If you have the money to consider a mattress without the price, and you want a rich feeling, high-quality mattress then these beds are worth considering.  You get very premium materials and lots of them, and they come together for great feeling beds.
