Pressure Test Results

We've pressure tested the BRS900 Plush mattress with petite, average, and large body size people laying on their side and back sleeping positions to see what kind of support and comfort you can expect. (Learn how we test.)

The BRS900 Plush demonstrated exceptional pressure relief and conforming support. In looking at the images below you can see there are no yellow or bright red areas showing on any of our models' pressure points, or the hips and shoulders. Yellow or red indicates excessive amounts of pressure which would cause discomfort and would lead to you tossing and turning throughout the night, disturbing your sleep. What the pressure maps do show is large areas of blue and green which means that this bed relieves all pressure in your joints and provides amazing support.

These test results have scored the bed as recommended for all body sizes and sleep positions. Minimal pressure points and outstanding support mean that the BRS900 Plush mattress would be comfortable for just about everyone.

Conclusion

The BRS900 Plush mattress is a softer mid-range mattress that's a great choice if you're looking to save money. Plus, it's been rated as 'recommended' by our industry experts who found that this bed provides exceptional support and superior pressure relief through our pressure testing process.

The Beautyrest Silver BRS900 Plush mattress has tested very well for back and side sleepers. It does a magnificent job of contouring with your body's curves for proper pressure relief thereby letting you get an undisturbed night's sleep. Excessive pressure points on your hips and shoulders cause you to toss and turn which interrupts your sleep. The bed also provides great support for proper spinal alignment which lowers your chances of waking up with aches and pains.

Even at a relatively low price, this mattress still offers some strong features. Starting on top, it has temperature cooling materials on top that they call DualCool. It has several foam layers for comfort, including a center section of Gel Memory Foam. Then it has individually pocketed coils underneath for robust support. The edge support helps the entire surface be comfortable for sleeping, and to make a safe place to sit when you're on the edge of the bed getting ready in the morning.

Certainly, there are mattresses with more features on the market. But for the price, you're getting a strong value in this bed. Plus you get some confidence in the bed because it's made by Beautyrest which is a leader in the industry.
