The Beautyrest Harmony Lux Hybrid Empress Medium mattress is the shortest model from this line of hybrids. I'll go over the features, pros/cons, specifications, and recommendations to help you decide if this mattress will work for you.

Comfort Scale Rating

The Harmony Lux Hybrid Empress Medium mattress is a medium-feeling bed; we rate it a 4 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest). This neutral-firm comfort will work for a lot of people, especially those who don't like to sink into their mattress but don't want anything too firm. There is a firm and a plush version of this mattress if the medium does not work.

Pressure Test Results

We will pressure test the Beautyrest Harmony Lux Hybrid Empress Medium mattress to see if the bed 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.) 

Until we are able to test this model, you can view an example of what the pressure results will look like when they become available.

The Main Harmony Lux Hybrid Empress Medium Features in Detail

  1. 1. InfiniCool Plus

    The cooling layers in the quilt help you stay at a comfortable temperature all night. 

  2. 2. Beautyrest Gel Memory Foam

    Adds pressure relief to prevent restless nights, contouring to your body.

  3. 3. GelTouch® Foam

    This breathable gel foam feels soft and keeps you cool and comfortable.

  4. 4. T2 Pocketed Coil Technology

    The coils are individually wrapped and provide precise support in the center of the mattress, where it's most important. 

Warranty

The Harmony Lux Hybrid Empress Medium mattress has a 10-year warranty against factory defects, and you can try it for 120 nights with US-Mattress' trial period.

Conclusion

The Harmony Lux Hybrid Empress Medium mattress is a medium-firm hybrid mattress with a lot of advanced features and materials. If it's in your budget (between $1,000-$2,000) and fits your preferences, then consider it an excellent option. If the medium mattress does not work for you, try the firm and a plush version of this mattress

Features to note are the cooling technology, edge support, SEAQUAL fabric, T2 Pocketed Coil Technology (precise back support), and layers of gel memory foam. These all combine to make a comfortable mattress with good support and temperature control. I think most people would get quality sleep on this mattress, and wake up feeling good.

With durable materials and a 10-year warranty, it's also a pretty safe bet that it'll last you a long time. So, even though it's over $1,000, the investment will be worth it. 

I do recommend the Empress Medium for anyone who wants a hybrid mattress that feels supportive and conforming, but not overly soft.
