Beautyrest Silver Kenosha Place Medium Pillow Top Mattress Review

Updated January 24, 2022

The Kenosha Place Medium Pillow Top Mattress is a medium-firm feeling bed in the Beautyrest Silver collection by Simmons Bedding.  This bed performed extremely well during the pressure testing phase of our expert review and we're here to provide you with all the information you could need if you're considering this mattress as your next bed purchase:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Kenosha Place Medium Pillow Top mattress has a medium-firm feeling that we rate a 3.5 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest.)  A bed with this comfort, right in the lower middle portion of our comfort scale, would appeal to most people who prefer a firmer mattress.  Keep this in mind as a pillow top is usually associated with the bed being super soft and plush, that's not what this bed feels like.

Pressure Test Results

Using models with petite, average, and larger-sized bodies we've pressure tested the Kenosha Place Medium Pillow Top mattress to learn if the bed provides good support, pressure relief, and comfort.  We had our models lie on their side and back sleeping positions on this mattress for a clear representation of how well this mattress will perform for most people. (Learn how we test.) 

As shown below, this mattress gives most people extraordinary pressure relief and remarkable back support.  Test results confirm these facts and you can see for yourself in the images below how well this mattress relieved pressure and supports the back.  What you're looking for is green areas of coloration which indicate that this particular part of the body is receiving the correct amount of pressure relief.  The few yellow areas in these images exhibit where there's more pressure than what is considered 'normal'.  Red areas, of which there are minimal spots, meaning there's too much pressure, though this mattress had nearly none of those show in our testing data. 

A bed's main function is to cradle your body in such a way as to maintain comfort and support so you sleep better than if you were sleeping on the hard ground.  Pressure relief is crucial because of how well the bed disperses your weight and how you prefer to sleep on the bed makes the difference between good quality sleep and a night of tossing and turning.  You also need your mattress to properly align your spine and to be supportive of your back overall.  An improperly aligned spine means you'd wake up with back spasms, tightness, head and neck tension, headaches, pain, and a whole lot of fatigue.  Fortunately, this mattress performed exceptionally well during testing and is capable of supporting your back and relieving excess pressure on your joints regardless of your body size or preferred sleep position.

Conclusion

The Kenosha Place Medium Pillow Top Mattress is a medium-firm feeling bed in the Beautyrest Silver collection of beds by Simmons.  The Kenosha Place model name is unique to US-Mattress, this is a common practice in the mattress industry.  Most bedding manufacturers offer their products with unique names to each of the retailers they sell to, no matter how big or how small they are. 

Over 6" of this bed's overall height comes from multiple layers of foam designed to bring you maximum plush comfort and cooling effects to reduce your sleep temperature.  A small amount of Gel Memory Foam is located in the middle of the bed which helps to properly support your lower back and align your spine properly.  The 900 Series Pocketed Coil System works with Firm Comfort Foam, and AirCool Foam to cradle your body and conform to its curves for excellent pressure relief and conforming support.

I like this mattress because it gives people the firmer comfort they like while also offering the benefit of being a pillowtop bed.  Keep that in mind if you're considering purchasing the Kenosha Place Medium Pillow Top mattress, it's not your regular super plush mushy pillow top bed, but it's still a great choice based on its features and price!
