Carbon 1000 Plush Pillow Top Mattress

The Harmony Lux Carbon 1000 Plush Pillow Top Mattress is a soft-feeling pillow-top bed in the Beautyrest Harmony Lux collection that Simmons released. It's part of the Carbon Series, which is the less expensive end of this collection. The bed is sold by online retailers as the HLC 1000 Plush Pillow Top. For further information on this bed, we go into detail in our review below:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Harmony Lux Carbon 1000 Plush Pillow Top Mattress is a soft bed with a pillow top; we rate it an 8 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest). This type of comfort is for those who know they prefer a very soft mattress. If you feel that a firmer bed might suit your needs better, then there are a couple of other Harmony Lux models that could work better for you than this model.

Pressure Test Results

We Have pressure tested the Beautyrest Harmony Lux Carbon 1000 Plush Pillow Top to learn if the mattress provides good support, pressure relief, and comfort for large, medium, and petite-sized people. Using models of each size we map their bodies while lying down on their side and back sleeping positions for a clear image of how well this mattress will perform for most people. (Learn how we test.) 

As you can see in the images below this mattress exhibited excellent pressure relief and proper back support for all body types and sleep positions. Being a softer pillow top it was a bit surprising to see that this mattress did not cause a bit of excessive pressure on the larger-sized bodies, which is something we see often. That's a testament to the quality of pressure-relieving foams and comfort that this mattress has to offer.

Conclusion

The Harmony Lux Carbon 1000 Plush Pillow Top Mattress is a soft pillow top bed from Simmons' Harmony Lux Collection.  It's one of five available Harmony Lux Carbon Series models. There's also the Diamond Series, which is higher-end and has four models. This mattress is sold by online retailers as the HLC 1000 Plush Pillow Top.

It's a high-performing mattress, with premium quality foams and a good support system. There's additional support for the lower back with the alternating coils in the center third. The combination of edge support and good motion transfer minimization makes it a great bed for couples. That's because these features make the entire surface sleepable and allow your partner to move around without disturbing you.

I'd definitely recommend anyone looking to buy a really soft mattress soon to try out this one. Not only does it have great basics, but there are also some nice features to it, without a sky-high price attached. Even better, Simmons partnered with SEAQUAL to help remove debris from the ocean with their Harmony Lux Collection. They repurpose the plastic into fiber that helps with the cooling qualities and it's used in every model.

I look forward to receiving this bed so we can really test out these qualities and provide more details.
