The Simmons Beautyrest is one of the more popular mattress lines, and also notoriously difficult to navigate. Not only are there a number of different Beautyrest models, there are variations within each model to suit different sleeper preferences.
Then finally, you have different outlets that name the same mattress different models for their stores. If you’re confused, mission accomplished, that’s what they wanted! I’ll help you navigate Simmons Beautyrest and other brands to help you find the mattress that best suits your needs.
If you are looking for an online brand that is comparable in feel to some of the better Beautyrest models, I would suggest you take a look at WinkBeds and my WinkBeds vs. Beautyrest Black comparison. For a more affordable Simmons model, take a look at the Simmons Foam mattress review.
Simmons Beautyrest comes in seven main lines:
- Beautyrest Black
- Beautyrest Black Hybrid
- Beautyrest Harmony
- Beautyrest Harmony Lux
- Beautyrest Harmony Lux Diamond
- Beautyrest Harmony Lux Carbon
- Beautyrest by Christian Siriano
Overall people generally like the Beautyrest line – it’s definitely the best line out of Simmons. Most frequent qualms are price and long-term durability. Some quick info to get you started:
- If you’re on a budget, start with the Beautyrest Harmony
- If you’re looking for a fan favorite, try the Beautyrest Harmony Lux Diamond, which is rated 4.7 stars by customers
- If you’re after a luxury spring, check out Beautyrest Black
Below I’ll provide a quick overview of some of these Beautyrest categories and link to full reviews that provide a very in-depth look at each mattress and where you can find the best deal.
NOTE: different stores will carry the same mattress at very different prices, so make sure to read my in-depth analyses before you make a final purchase.
The Beautyrest Black is the most talked about mattress from Simmons, definitely targeting the luxury market. Overall people tend to really like the mattress, but if you’re price sensitive it’s going to give you some serious sticker shock. What makes this mattress so fancy?
- Very high quality coils – The mattress sports a triple braided Veriform pocketed coil system that pretty much eliminates motion transfer. These coils also last much longer than coils used in the other mattresses
- Quality foam – either aircool memory foam, dynamic response memory foam, or micro diamond infused aircool memory foam
The price on the Beautyrest Black varies wildly based on the options, but don’t be surprised to drop a few thousand dollars at least.
Beautyrest Harmony Lux (Plus Diamond and Carbon Options)
The Beautyrest Harmony Lux is an innerspring mattress from Simmons and is a great option for back sleepers and side sleepers. This mattress has a firmness of about 7/10, which is slightly firmer than your average mattress. We found it to be extremely comfortable, while providing spinal support from the coils. However, if you’re a lightweight sleeper, you may find it to be too much mattress.
The Beautyrest Harmony Lux, Lux Diamond, and Lux Carbon lines are all meant to keep you cool at night. The Diamond series has the most advanced cooling technology of the three options, and it’s reflected in the price (you can expect to spend a few hundred dollars more for a mattress from the Lux Diamond collection).
