You can, easily, find what you would think is the same thing.
Simmons’ Recharge Ultra Series has an 850 coil unit, and there is a plush pillowtop in that series.
On the face, you’d think they were the same as what you have….NOT SO!
10 years ago, Simmons used very little memory foam. Most of their mattresses didn’t have any in them. Yours did not.
Today, there’s memory form in every mattress they make….and you’d be lucky to get a year or two of comfortable sleep out of them.
Memory foam is thee worst upholstery material ever invented. The reason for its use is diabolical.
Memory foam is the only upholstery material that is temperature sensitive. This means that as the foam warms from your body heat, it softens and you sink into it.
As first, it’s pretty comfy. Within only a matter of months, it isn’t.
This nightly business of warming and softening takes a toll on it’s resiliency…getting to the point where you simply sink through it, and poof, like magic the comfort is lost.
The diabolical part of all this, is that when you get off of the mattress, the memory foam returns to its original shape…or close enough to it, that you will not prevail in a warranty claim.
This puts you in a position of needing a new mattress every couple of years.
This is done purposefully so that many more mattresses are sold and none receive authorization for exchange.
This has created a boon for the industry and a nightmare for the consumer.
A “Plush” Beautyrest is made plush by using a much thinner gauge wire for the coils. This thinner wire isn’t as strong or resilient as the heavier gauge wire used in the firmer models.
In the past, this hasn’t been a problem, because the upholstery material was resilient. Now, neither is.
If you look on line at reviews for Simmons Beautyrests, you see that they are horrible. The reason why they are so bad, is because of all the plush and plush pillowtop models being sold.
Salespeople push comfort while disregarding durability. It’s an easy sell. Consumers buy into the “Comfort to the point of Luxury” narrative because of the initial comfort.
It’s gotten to be a real mess from a consumer’s stand point. So much so, that we have eliminated the “Plush and Pillowtop” from the Beautyrets we offer.
I don’t need the aggravation they cause…to me or my customers.
The really important part of the Simmons Beautyrest is the individually pocketed coil, which provides contouring support that maintains the natural alignment of your spine.
THIS, more than anything else is what gives the Simmons Beautyrest its comfort and value.
Having said all that, there is a way for you to get the feel you want from a Beautyrest mattress AND have it last a for many years so that you get your money’s worth.
Start with a luxury firm, non-pillowtop model….the River Song model, shown here:
This will provide you the “Support” part of your sleep system.Add to that an EverEden all natural 2″ Soft Talalay Latex Mattress Topper.
Latex is and has been thee best upholstery material for the last 100 years…nothing new. (Best meaning: most comfortable and most durable).All Natural Talalay Latex is the softest and most supple of the latex…providing extraordinary surface comfort.
Latex is also thee most resilient of all the foams. It will absorb most, if not all, of your body weight.
The result of this is a mattress that doesn’t work as hard and so, lasts a lot longer than the manufacturer intended.
We sold this sleep system combinations hundreds of times , over the last 10 years…and with zero complaints to show for it.
One last thing. A World Class Beautyrest has a higher coil count, (1000 in queen)…not 850.
The above link is to the Ultra Series, which has an 850 coil count.
Here is a link to the World Class models…the Santorini Luxury Firm being the one to choose in this series.
