More on Beautyrest Silver Mattress Features

The features vary from model to model, but each has the 900 Series Pocketed Coil Technology, a cooling cover, and pressure-relieving foams.

Inside layers of a Beautyrest Silver mattress

1. 900 Series Pocketed Coil Technology

Silver mattresses' support system is hundreds of individually wrapped coils that react and adjust independently to your weight and your body’s contours. Some Silver models also feature Gel Memory Foam Lumbar Support, which adds contouring support for the lower back.

2. Pressure Relieving Comfort

Each mattress features pressure-relieving foams, some use Dynamic Response Memory Foam. They give a contouring feel and keep you from tossing and turning all night.

3. DualCool Technology

The quilt has cooling technology incorporated, so you won't overheat throughout the night. The fiber is infused with silver which conducts heat away from your body and prevents the growth of bacteria, molds, and mildews.

More about Simmons Beautyrest

Simmons Mattress Company has been a leader in mattress manufacturing for over 100 years. Their Beautyrest flagship brand has been a household name for many decades. Many people remember the “bowling ball” commercial where a bowling ball was dropped on a mattress to highlight their pocketed coils (a glass of wine would sit undisturbed when the ball bounced on the other side of the bed).

In recent years Simmons merged with Serta into the Serta Simmons Bedding Company, making them one of the two largest mattress companies in the world (TempurSealy is the other). Simmons now markets the Black, Platinum, Silver, and Hybrid mattress collections.

Being a large manufacturer, Simmons engineers and makes many of its own components in addition to manufacturing. With their longevity and size, they have accumulated a lot of experience and knowledge making mattresses. Simmons makes millions of mattresses each year and they’ve maintained a positive reputation over the long run. While some review sites call out consumer complaints, those sites fail to provide the context that there are tens of millions of customers sleeping on Beautyrest mattresses. Altogether, Simmons Beautyrest has a highly positive customer reputation.

Conclusion

Beautyrest Silver mattresses represent a mainstream line of mattresses from Simmons, a large mattress company. These are mid-priced, fairly well-equipped mattresses designed to do a lot of business for Simmons. You can’t go wrong with beds like these.  We've reviewed both levels of the Silver collections separately for additional information. The BRS900 beds, which are the Level 1 beds in the Silver collection, and the BRS900-C are the Level 2 beds.

It comes down to your preference for the features. For example, whether you want regular pocketed coils or the models with the additional "Gel Memory Foam Center Third Support" for extra conforming back support. In our testing, many of the mattresses rated well and the top 5 we listed in this review rated extremely well. Like the BRS900 Medium Pillow Top, which is a ‘Recommend’ for every body size and sleep position tested. There are a lot of great options to look at within the Silver collection.

These beds performed well in our testing, have reasonably high-quality materials incorporated into their design, and they come from one of the largest, best-known mattress manufacturers in the world. You can safely consider these mattresses with confidence. It's down to determining if any of their models fit your situation and needs.
