Beautyrest Silver BRS900 Plush Pillow Top Mattress Review

Updated September 7, 2022

We've compiled a complete and comprehensive review of the BRS900 Plush Pillow Top mattress to aid in your mattress research. It's the softest model in the BRS900 lineup and also the tallest at nearly 15 inches tall. Please read on for more information on the bed's features and our testing:

Comfort Scale Rating

The BRS900 Plush Pillow Top mattress has a softer feel; we rate it a 7 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest.) It's naturally soft and conforming since it's a pillow top, so if you like firmer beds you'll want to consider other models.

Pressure Test Results

We've put the BRS900 Plush Pillow Top mattress through our rigorous pressure testing to see if the bed provides good support, pressure relief, and comfort for large, medium, and petite-sized people. Using models in each size group we've had them lie 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.) 

This mattress performed exceptionally well during our testing. The amount of pressure relief that each person needs is enough to reduce pressure points in the body, mainly at the shoulders and hips. An excessive amount of pressure on your body causes you to toss and turn throughout the night thereby disturbing your sleep.

In the images below, you can see minimal red spots throughout the body which indicates excellent pressure-relieving and back support. The more areas of blue and green the better because green areas on the body show proper support and correct spinal alignment. Without these supportive features for your lower back support, you'd be waking up very stiff and sore from a terrible night's sleep. 

The BRS900 Plush Pillowtop mattress achieved a 'recommended' rating for all body types and sleep positions which is very impressive for a plush pillowtop model. Pillowtop models can sometimes not provide the necessary support a body needs but this bed tested exceptionally well.

Conclusion

The BRS900 Plush Pillow Top Mattress is the softest, and tallest, mattress in the BRS900 collection of beds.  I like this mattress because you get so much for the money, even in basic terms like the bed's height.

This bed also performed particularly well when we put it through our pressure testing. The bed demonstrated exceptional support and pressure-relieving abilities as well as proper spinal alignment. The testing confirmed that this bed will help you to avoid tossing and turning at night by reducing pressure points. The proper spinal alignment will ensure that you do not sleep in an awkward position which would lead to stiffness and lower back pain in the morning.

This bed has 5 layers of conforming foams, including a premium center third of gel memory foam for back support. Unfortunately, this layer only has the center third of the gel, but that's understandable given the very low price being offered. A cooling layer of Tencel material and Dual Cool Technology works to keep your mattress fresh and cool while moving heat and moisture away. These several layers of foams combined with 900 Series Firm Pocketed Coils are what give you the conforming support that passed this bed through our meticulous pressure testing. 

For a nearly 15" tall mattress, the price represents a strong value in the mattress market. If you're considering this mattress as your next bed be sure you know that its plush comfort might not be everyone's preference, but the bed's support system and conforming materials will work for nearly anyone.
