Simmons Beautyrest black Ansleigh Plush Pillowtop Mattress is a bad choice for scoliosis & lower back pain.

Larry writes:

Hi Pete, 

We bought a Simmons Beautyrest Black Ansleigh Plush Pillowtop Mattress 4 years ago. 

We will put this in 2nd bedroom but want help in buying a new one from you.

My wife has scoliosis and sleeps on her side and I have had neck surgery and lower back pain at times and tend to sleep on my back and some on my side. 

I read a firm mattress with a soft top is best for us but I’m not sure if its one of the simmons you carry or the other 2 innersprings lines… please help 

Thanks, Larry


Hi Larry,

How did that mattress work for you and your wife when it was new?

What are the heights & weights of the two of you?


Pete, It still seems good but I sometimes feel it is not as firm as when we got it.

I weigh 165lbs and my wife 150lbs. I am now 5 feet 6 inches and she is 5 feet.



Hi Larry,

Well, you over bought and made a bad choice from that series…the Black Series.

Plush models use a thinner gauge wire, and pillowtops lose their comfort quickly.

If you look at the Simmons Beautyrests on our website, you’ll notice that we do not list plush or pillowtop models at any level. They tend to be a very poor value, due to they’re quick wear.

Also, we recommend the Black models for those who exceed 200 lbs. it simply isn’t necessary to go to that expense at your sizes.

The mattress I recommend for you is the Simmons Beautyrest World Class Santorini in luxury firm. Their firm models use a much heavier gauge wire, providing better and longer lasting support for your spine.

When we recommend a firm Beautyrest, we also recommend softening the surface with all natural Talalay latex foam rubber…which is, by far, superior to the poly & memory foams used in the pillowtops.

Latex is and has been thee best upholstery material available for the last 100 years…super comfy and extremely resilient.

Besides providing surface comfort that lasts, latex will absorb much of your body weight.

The mattress you use under it will last twice as long as the manufacturer intended.

This sleep system combination works and works well. It has been sold like this countless times over the last 10 years, and with zero complaints to show for it.

The mattress topper to use, is the Ever-Eden 2″ Soft Talalay model.
