Type of Construction

Beautyrest Black mattresses are traditional innerspring mattresses with pocketed coils and different combinations of foam materials on top.

Beautyrest Black - An Overview

Beautyrest Black mattresses use a pocketed coil design that made Beautyrest famous. Pocketed coils help provide contouring support and also have the added benefit of reducing 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 and help keep the bed cool. 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:

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 “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 2 largest mattress companies in the world (TempurSealy is the other.) Simmons now markets the Black, Platinum 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 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.

Conclusion

The 2019 collection of Beautyrest Black mattresses are available in a wide range of prices and comforts.  They've rated really well in our pressure testing and we've highlighted the top 5 models of the 2019 collection.  These five beds did an excellent job of distributing bodyweight.  This minimizes pressure points on your body which can lead to interrupted sleep caused by tossing and turning.  These models also did a great job supporting the different body sizes and sleeping positions.

The L-Class Plush Pillowtop rated the best out of the five with recommendations for all body sizes and sleep positions.  It's also one of the most popular models and one of the more affordable ones in the Beautyrest Black collection.

 These mattresses are expensive and cost more than average so they’re not for everybody’s budget. But they do come with extra features like the durable triple strand coils and RightTemp Memory Foam, as examples. These features add value, but if they’re worth it is up to you.
