Simmons Beautyrest Mattresses and Memory Foam.

Hi Pete,
I’ve been reading your Mattress Shopping 101 and 102 article and blog posts.
I am curious as to why, if memory foam is THE WORST THING THAT WAS EVER INVENTED, you carry a mattress that includes it. 
Or am I reading the Simmons Beautyrest materials list wrong?

Thank you, Maggi
Hi Maggi,
First, the coil system of the Simmons Beautyrest is an important support system.
The individually pocketed coils move independently from one another, providing contouring support that maintains the natural alignment of your spine.
And while there are other name brands that use a pocketed coil system, none of the others have a coil that is taller than the pocket.
Simmons coils are 9″ tall, compressed into a 7″ pocket.
This provides valuable “push back” support.
Also, only the pockets in the Simmons mattresses are heat sealed in the center, which allows each coil to move independently from one another.
The others are sealed at the top and bottom, and do not truly move independently.
Also, the memory foam used in the Simmons is a bit different than regular memory foam.
You’ve seen the commercials for memory foam, where a hand is pressed into the foam…the hand is then removed…and a residual hand print lingers in the foam.
When you do the same thing to Simmons memory foam, the foam returns immediately.
The memory foam in the Simmons is far more resilient and a lot less temperature sensitive than regular memory foam.
Simmons cures their memory foam, so not to off gas the toxic chemical, as is common with most other brands.
The Simmons memory foam was introduced several years ago.
I’m not one to take things at face value…especially in this business…so my wife and I ordered a Simmons Beautyrest for ourselves.
When it arrived, it had no odor and no ill effects from any off-gassing were detected.
We added a latex topper to it, and it is now 7 years later. Everything is still in like new condition.

I wouldn’t go as far as to say that the Simmons memory foam is safe…and it wouldn’t wear well without a latex topper.

The importance of the coil unit and the lack of toxicity is why Simmons Beautyrest remains one of the tools I use to accommodate my customers.
That was an excellent question. I’m glad you asked it, Maggi.
We don’t carry everything that Simmons makes. We have chosen to offer only the best that they have.
Here’s a link to all of our Simmons products.


Thanks, Pete
