Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Mattress with Cooling Gel.

Hi Pete,

I’ve been reading your mattress blog extensively, and have been learning a lot. Thank you for providing us with such good advice. 
I’m in the market for a new mattress. I am looking for a quality mattress that will last a long time. 
6 months ago, I bought an 8″ memory foam mattress. it was good for the first month and then started getting too soft. 
I now wake up regularly with back ache. 
I wasn’t sure if it was the mattress or my sitting position during the day. 
But after going on vacation and sleeping on a very comfortable bed without any back pain, I realized it’s probably the mattress. 
Since this was the first time I had tried a memory foam mattress, I discovered it was making me way too hot. 
I also didn’t like the feeling of sleeping inside of a mattress but prefer firmer feel of floating on top. 
I want something that will last longer than a few years. So, I went shopping and tried a few beds. 
I really liked the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum extra firm mattress. 
Do you have an equivalent in your online store? 
Also, would you recommend even better quality ones? 
My preference is somewhere between luxury firm and tabletop when it comes to the firmness level. 
Even though I do sleep on my side, mostly. 
I also do NOT like being very hot. my apt is generally very warm so some kind of cooling system is a must. 
I read good things about the gel foam that Simmons uses in their Beautyrest mattresses. 
I’m not sure if that will make a big difference.  
Thanks, once again, for your help.
Hi Ken,
The thing that is in the Simmons Beautyrest, that you liked so much, is the individually pocketed coil system.
With each coil moving independently from one another, it provides the “Push Back” support that your memory foam mattress does not.
This coil system contours to the shape of your body and maintains the natural alignment of your spine.
This is something your memory foam mattress does not do.
However, the Simmons Beautyrest mattresses are upholstered with memory foam, which will sleep hot, despite the BS about the cooling gel, which does not work well. The gel reaches a saturation point…usually within a few hours, and you’re back in the soup.
Not only will heat be a factor, but the memory foam will allow you to sink into the mattress, as yours does now.
The only upholstery material that does what you want…sleeps cool and provides that “Floating on Top” feeling, is latex.
And Latex is a natural product, while memory foam is a chemical soup.
We carry a brand, the one we sleep on at home, Natura of Canada Greenspring.
This, too, uses an individually pocketed coil system.
Compared to the Simmons Beautyrest, the Greensporing mattresses have a higher coil count and the coils are stronger…made of double tempered steel.
The coils in the Simmons Beautyrest are made of raw steel…not tempered, at all.
Just as important, the upholstery in the Natura of Canada Greenspring is natural Talalay Latex….and contain NO Memory Foam.
These mattresses are, by far, much higher quality than anything Simmons makes.
If you want to sleep cool, float on top, and have excellent support that will last for many years, Natura of Canada Greenspring is the way to go.
Their “Firm” model is their firmest. However, due to the high quality of the components, they are all firmer than they sound.
E.g., their “Firm” model is hard….their “Plush” model is firm….their “Ultra Plush” is a Medium Firm.
You might consider the “Firm Eurotop” model for the balance a side sleeper will want.
That line of mattresses, shown here:
Natura Greenspring Liberty TT Natura Greenspring Liberty Eurotop Latex Hybrid Mattress
Greenspring Liberty Firm Euro Top Experience deeper, more restorative sleep with the Liberty Firm Euro Mattress. Lush helpings of natural ingredients come together with a foam encased coil unit to gratify your hunger for luxury, affordability and eco-integrity.

White Glove Delivery, including Removal of your old mattress, is free and there’s no sales tax.

Thanks, Pete
