Mother’s Day Mattress Help, Simmons Beautyrest Black with a latex topper.

Paul writes:

Good Afternoon Pete,
I stumbled by you site while trying to investigate mattresses and I’m sure glad I did. 
We have a 11 yr old Queen Simmons Beautyrest  “better sleep for the 2 of you” manufacturers 10-/2004, that we absolutely love. 
We would like to get the same mattress in a king size, but I’m struggling with what the comparable model is in today’s mattress world. 
I was hoping I could get your help as I’m trying to upgrade this for a Mother’s Day gift and don’t want to spoil the surprise by making my wife test out a bunch of new ones.
Thanks in advance for your help

Hi Paul,

I know you think this will be easy, considering that you already know what you want.
However, Simmons no longer makes what you have…or want.
Since the last time you bought a mattress, the name brands have down grading their products in order to sell more, more frequently to the same consumers.
It’s called, “Planned Obsolescence”. 
A firm Simmons Beautyrest will last an average weight couple, about 4-5 years. A plush Beautyrest lasts, maybe, a year or two.
We do have ways around their efforts to turn you into a frequent buyer…and high quality alternatives to the name brands, as well.
Before offering a recommendation, it would be helpful to know your sizes…heights and weights.


Hi Pete,
Thank you so much for your email. I am 6ft, 240lbs and my wife is 5ft.4 140lbs. We guessed at a Simmons beautyrest Black Florence collection (M32503.60.7305) a few years ago and hated it, too soft, created craters in which we slept in causing much back pain for me. This mattress has since been downgraded to our guest bedroom, poor folks that stay with us. I really appreciate any help and guidance you could provide!
Thanks for the help!
Hi Paul,

The key to not having that happen again, is a latex topper.
My wife and I are about your size. We have a Simmons Beautyrest Black that is 3.5 years old and still like new.
The reason is that we have a latex topper to go with it.
Latex foam is and has been the most resilient foam for the last 100 years.
The mattresses have poly and memory foam…both designed for comfort to make the sale, but as you’ve experienced, not worth a damn after that.
Latex is all natural foam rubber…extremely comfortable and equally long lasting. The latex topper will absorb much of your body weight, leaving a lot less work for the mattress.
The coil system in the Black models is the strongest of all the individually pocketed coils and a must for a man your size.
I recommend the Ava model in luxury firm and a 2″ soft Talalay latex topper to go on it.
Together, they will provide you with what you’re after.
Here are the links to both products.
