Beautyrest Silver Lydia Manor Plush Pillow Top Mattress Review

Updated March 14, 2022

The Lydia Manor name is unique to US-Mattress, Simmons typically offers their mattress models with unique names for different retailers, something that is a common practice in the mattress industry.  This model is the softest of all the Lydia Manor models, and it earned the #3 spot on our Top Ten Beautyrest Mattresses of 2022 List!  Please read on for more information in our expert review:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Lydia Manor Plush Pillow Top mattress has a softer feel; we rate it a 9 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is hard, 10 is softest.)  This bed is super soft, you'll really like this bed if a plush, super soft pillowtop is your comfort preference in a bed.  However, if you feel that you might need something even a little firmer then you'll want to consider one of the other Lydia Manor models with a firmer feeling.

Pressure Test Results

We've put the Lydia Manor 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.) 

Once we compile our test results we will publish them here for you to reference.  We do expect to see very good back support and pressure relief from this bed as it is a plush pillow top model.  However, larger body sizes tend to have some excess pressure build-up in models like this one so it's possible this bed will exhibit some negative characteristics for that sized person.  Please come back soon to see what the final results are!

Below is an example of what the test results will look once we publish them:

The Main Lydia Manor Plush Pillow Top Features in Detail

BRS900 Plush Pillowtop Mattress Cutaway

  1. 1. Dual Cool Plus Cover

    Moisture-wicking technology is built into the surface of this bed's cover which is ultimately designed to reduce your sleep temperature so you fall asleep faster and stay asleep throughout the night.

  2. 2. AirFeel Foam

    An important layer to help conform as well as support your body's natural curves, its open cell structure is designed to promote airflow through the mattress which helps move heat away from your body.

  3. 3. GelTouch® Foam

    This mattress has four inches of this foam, built to draw heat away from your body but also to give you the super soft feeling that this plush pillow top is made for.  

  4. 4. 900 Series Pocketed Coil

    Individually pocketed spring coils help provide pinpoint support under every part of your body.   They also help to keep down motion disturbance from your sleeping partner.

Conclusion

The Lydia Manor Plush Pillow Top Mattress is the softest, and tallest, mattress of all the Lydia Manor models in the Beautyrest Silver collection of beds by Simmons.  I like this mattress a lot because you get that super-plush pillowtop mattress feeling (which usually costs an arm and a leg) at a really decent price.  

This bed is packed with high-quality foams meant to give you both plush comfort and various cooling technology for a better quality of sleep.  Layers of AirFeel Foam, AirCool Foam, and four whole inches of GelTouch® Foam combine with the 900 Series Firm Pocketed Coil System for a very comfortable night's sleep.  Add to that the fact that all the layers of foam and the material on top of the mattress work to reduce your sleep temperature so you fall asleep faster and sleep deeper for your best quality of sleep and you have a fantastic mattress.

I really do recommend this mattress to anyone who prefers a super plush, cushy pillowtop bed, you won't be disappointed!  The value in the price for the high-quality materials used to build this bed is hard to beat in similar models.
