Beautyrest Black is the top-of-the-line mattress collection from Simmons Bedding, the second-largest mattress manufacturer in the world. In this Beautyrest Black review, we’ll give you an overview of our testing results for these beds, as well as our recommendations on which beds are the best:

Beautyrest Mattress Collections

The Black mattress line is one of 5 collections from Beautyrest:

  1. Black (premium prices $1,999-$4,099)
  2. Hybrid (mid to upper range, $1,099-$2,399)
  3. Harmony Lux (mid to upper range prices $1,199-$2,099)
  4. Silver (lower to mid-range prices $589-$1,179)
  5. Beautyrest BR800 (lower end prices, $619-$739)

Type of Construction

Most of the Beautyrest Black mattresses are traditional innerspring mattresses with pocketed coils and different combinations of foam materials on top. The X-Class beds are hybrid models that have a combination of memory foam and pocketed coils.

Beautyrest Black - An Overview

Beautyrest Black mattresses use a pocketed coil design that made Beautyrest famous. Pocketed coils help provide contouring support and reduce the transfer of motion when your bed partner moves. These mattresses also include premium foams like Micro Diamond Memory Foam that actually inject micro diamonds into the foam to help keep the bed cool. These comfort layers also provide pressure relief.

Since there are 13 models in this collection, they range broadly in features, prices, and soft to hard feels – more details are down the page:

The Beautyrest Black mattresses perform well and almost any sleeper type (back sleeper, side sleeper, stomach sleeper, or a combination) would find a Black mattress suited to them. There is an option for every comfort preference, whether you like an extra firm mattress or a plush pillow top.

However, some of the characteristics make these mattresses ideal for certain sleepers.

More about Simmons Beautyrest

Simmons Mattress Company has been a leader in mattress manufacturing for over 100 years. Their Beautyrest flagship brand has been a household name for many decades. Many people remember the 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, Harmony Lux, and Silver mattress collections.

As a large manufacturer, Simmons engineers and makes many of its own components. 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, they fail to provide the full context. There are tens of millions of customers sleeping on Beautyrest mattresses. Altogether, Simmons Beautyrest has a highly positive customer reputation.

Conclusion

Beautyrest Black mattresses definitely fall into the luxury category, made with high-end materials. They're great at reducing motion transfer, which is essential if you sleep with an active partner. The T3 pocketed coil technology will provide durable support that contours to your body.

You'll sleep cool with the BlackICE technology, so these beds are good for those who tend to sleep hot. And the layers of premium memory foams do an excellent job of relieving pressure, as we saw in our testing.

The Beautyrest Black mattresses got really good ratings in our pressure testing across the board, and we've highlighted the top five models of the collection above. These five beds did an excellent job of distributing bodyweight, providing support, and minimizing pressure points. 

The L-Class Plush Pillowtop rated the best out of the five with recommendations for all body sizes and sleep positions.

 These beds are expensive and cost more than the average so they’re not ideal for everybody’s budget. They do have a number of valuable extra features like the durable triple strand coils and RightTemp Memory Foam.

Simmons' Beautyrest Black beds are well worth the money, and I'd recommend them as a prime option for someone looking to buy a luxury mattress.
