Comfort Scale Rating

The Harmony Maui Plush Pillowtop mattress is a softer-feeling pillowtop bed; we rate this model a 7 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest). This model is the comfort you'd expect from a pillow top mattress, plush layers of comfort that you can sink into. On the other hand, those who prefer a firmer-feeling bed would be better off considering a different model in the Harmony collection.

Pressure Test Results

We'll pressure test the Beautyrest Harmony Maui Plush Pillow Top 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.) 

I'd expect the Maui Plush Pillow Top to perform well for side sleepers but not that well for back sleepers. Softer mattresses tend to cause excess pressure on the hips and shoulders for back sleepers, particularly the larger-sized bodies. Until we do get our pressure test results you can consult the images below to see what the results can look like once they've been completed.

Conclusion

The Harmony Maui Plush Pillow Top Mattress is a softer-feeling pillowtop bed that is a part of the Beautyrest Harmony collection of mattresses by Simmons.  It's the second Maui model and one of ten Harmony models currently available and is the softer of the two Maui's as the other one is a Medium Firm model.

I expect this bed to perform really well at relieving pressure for side sleepers. The back support system is a good one too and will be very contouring while keeping the spine aligned. The center third has an alternating coil which will definitely boost up the support to the lower back, without being too stiff. This type of coil system, which has individually wrapped coils, is also good at minimizing motion transfer, so the beds in this collection will work well for couples. Adding to this is the edge support, so the entire surface of the mattress will be comfortable for sleeping on, with no roll-off feeling at the edge.

I'd recommend the Harmony Maui Plush Pillowtop if you want a softer pillowtop mattress. That said, those that prefer a firmer-feeling bed will probably not find this particular model very comfortable. There are other options in the Beautyrest Harmony collection that would suit those people much better. One of my favorite parts of this mattress collection is its use of reclaimed plastics in every model to provide cooling near the surface, which helps you sleep comfortably and cleans up the ocean (they're partnered with SEAQUAL to do this)!
