L-Class Medium Dressed

The L-Class Collection is the entry-level group of beds in the Beautyrest Black collection. This is the new Beautyrest Black L-Class mattress collection. It offers more comfort layers and cooling technology inside the top of the mattress compared to the previous L-Class collection. This Collection has four new mattresses. There are three more collections positioned above this one in all of the Beautyrest Black collections, the C-Class, K-Class, and X-Class.

Beautyrest Black Collections

The L-Class is one of four available Collections from Beautyrest Black. You can view all the collection comparisons and details.

  1. K-Class - Top of the line with” SurfaceTouch™ Gel Memory Foam and a layer of micro coils

  2. X-Class Collection - Mid-range hybrids with AirCool Memory Foam and pocketed coils

  3. C-Class - Mid-range with SurfaceTouch™ Gel Memory Foam

  4. L-Class - Entry-level

Type of Construction

Beautyrest Black L-Class Mattress Collection Overview

As I mentioned at the top, this Collection has four mattresses, and all four mattresses share three common elements; 

First, they're all built on the Zoned T3 Pocketed Coil design spring system.  This is the most advanced from Simmons, the company that makes its luxury Beautyrest Black line of mattresses. 

Secondly, these mattresses have BlackICE with Plant-Based Cooling Technology on the top of the mattress.  This material is the latest advancement in cooling technology and is something you can actually feel on your hand when you touch the top of the bed - or when you lay on it. 

And third, they all have generous amounts of high-quality gel foams, memory foams, and the like.  These are arranged in different layer combinations to achieve the feel of each mattress. The comfort layers in these mattresses add pressure relief and make the mattresses durable. 

The mattresses range in height from 13.5" to 14.5" representing the number of materials included in their construction.  Since these are Beautyrest Black mattresses, they're made with premium materials you'd expect to find in a luxury mattress.

More About the Beautyrest Black Brand

Beautyrest Black is a brand produced by Simmons Mattress 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 (TempurSealy is the other.) Simmons now markets the Black, Harmony Lux, and Silver mattress collections.

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 in 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.

Previous Models

Let's discuss what has changed from previous models in the L-Class collection. The new collection uses antimicrobial mattress protection and SufaceTouch Gel Memory Foam. It also has one less mattress than the previous collection. 

Conclusion

The Beautyrest Black L-Class collection is the opening group of beds and is comprised of four mattresses that come in a wide range of comfort feels.  The range of mattresses has comfort that will appeal to most people, so you can count on finding a mattress in this group that fits your sleeping position.

All the L-Class mattresses have some key features that are also in the more expensive K-Class, X-Class,  and C-Class Collections.  They have BlackICE with Plant-Based Cooling Technology that helps keep you cool while you sleep if you are a hot sleeper.  Cooler temperatures not only help you sleep better, but this advancement also alleviates a problem common with memory foam mattresses where heat build-up creates an uncomfortably hot sleeping environment.  Secondly, all these mattresses have Zoned T3 Pocketed Coil.  This coil system is the most recent advancement from Beautyrest which is always known for using pocketed coil design.  The pocketed coils in the T3 system conform more precisely to your body's contours while also supplying support to your body's pressure points to help with back pain or any other problems you may have. 

Even though these beds represent the entry models for the Black brand, they do offer key features like the T3 Pocketed Coils that establish the value for their higher prices.  Although, if you have the ability and desire to pay for more, you can get added features from their more expensive collections.
