Luxury Firm or Extra Firm Simmons Beautyrest Silver Great Lakes Cove Mattress.

Pam writes:
Dear Pete: 
Could you describe the firmness level difference between the Simmons Beautyrest Silver Great Lakes Cove Luxury Firm and  Extra Firm models? 
I understand the Luxury Firm is rated a level 4 and the Extra Firm is rated a 2, but what does that mean and how do they compare? 
Also, is either mattress better for side and/or back sleepers?
Do I need the latex topper, I see you recommend so often?
Thank you, Pam 


Hi Pam,

There is no industry standard for the comfort levels you see online and here about in sales pitches.

What you encounter, concerning them, is nothing more than the opinion of the single person who wrote it.

Just like when you’re buying clothes, the same numbered size of any garment will be different from brand to brand. Same thing here.

Both of those mattresses are on the firm side, with the extra firm model having a stiffer surface feel than the luxury firm.

Back and stomach sleepers tend to prefer a firmer base support, while a side sleeper does better on the less stiff luxury firm.
And yes…a latex topper is a must when buying a Simmons Beautyrest for use by adults.
The latex topper does a number of things.
1) Provides surface comfort that remains like new for many years.
2) Insulates you from the memory foam in the mattress, which sleeps hot. Latex sleeps cool.
3) Extends the life of the mattress that would, otherwise, wear quickly…due to the memory foam.
    The latex toppers are extremely resilient, absorbing your body weight and allowing the mattress to work less and last a whole lot longer than it would          without the latex topper.
Here are links to the Simmons Beautyrest Silver Great Lakes Cove mattresses, and to the EverEden Pure, All Natural Latex toppers. 
The 2″ Soft Talalay is the most popular, and the one we use at home.
