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

Simmons Beautyrest Reviews

Simmons Beautyrest comes in six main lines:

  • Beautyrest Recharge
  • Beautyrest Recharge World Class
  • Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid
  • Beautyrest Black
  • Beautyrest Recharge Memory Foam Plus
  • Beautyrest Comforpedic and Comforpedic IQ (currently discontinued)

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 Recharge
  • If you like memory foam, go straight to the Recharge Memory Foam Plus
  • If you’re after a luxury spring, check out Beautyrest Black
  • If you want a combination of all the options, go to the Recharge Hybrid
  • If you have heard of Comforpedic, know that it’s discontinued.  Closest thing would be the Memory Foam Plus

Below I’ll provide a quick overview of each 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.

Beautyrest Recharge Classic MattressBeautyrest Recharge

The Recharge is definitely the cheapest of the Simmons Beautyrest, and thus naturally missing the additional features that the other Beautyrest models provide.  Definitely the place to start if you’re on a budget.  The mattress will vary slightly based on who’s selling it, but generally it will feature:

  • Pocket coils (around 800), which are good for support and motion transfer
  • Firm, Plush, Luxury Firm, and Pillow top (with option to combine pillow top and the other options)
  • Materials will vary, but often included is aircool foam, gel touch foam, and air cool memory foam.  All of these foams aim to reduce heat, and will vary in effectiveness in that regard.

A queen mattress will be ~$800, but know this price will vary greatly depending on the features included and the location where you purchase it.

Beautyrest Recharge World Class MattressBeautyrest Recharge World Class

The World Class is a step up from the standard Beautryrest Recharge, both in terms of a few features and of course the price.  Assume all is generally the same as the standard recharge, except:

  • The number of pocket coils will increase, ranging from 850 to 2000 depending on the specific model.  This means that you should have even better support and comfort, and further reduce motion transfer.
  • Foam will be aircool memory foam with micro gel touch, offering even better cooling, greater durability, and more comfort.

A queen will now cost you ~$1100, with price again varying from this point based on features and where you purchase.  You can definitely notice the increase in the coil count and memory foam, so if within your budget, this upgrade from the standard Beautyrest Recharge is worthwhile.

Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid MattressBeautyrest Hybrid

A true hybrid mattress is a mix of memory foam and coils (most often memory foam on top), which is exactly what we find in the Beautyrest Hybrid.  You will note we mentioned a layer of foam in the Recharge models, however that’s really just a thin layer on top, where as with the Hybrid the amount of foam in the top layer is much more substantial.  Things to note:

  • The Beautyrest Hybrid will have 1000 to 2000 coils
  • The mattress includes gel touch memory foam and micro-coils in the more expensive models
  • Lower end models have the aircool memory foam, higher end has micro diamond infused memory foam, both aiming to provide good comfort/support tradeoff and keep the mattress from sleeping hot

A queen will cost around $1300, with more variability than the others within the line (based on the coil range and type of foam used).

Beautyrest Black MattressBeautyrest Black

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 Recharge Memory Foam Plus MattressBeautyrest Recharge Memory Foam Plus

The Beautyrest Recharge memory foam mattress is a high-end memory foam mattress rounding out the options for the Beautyrest line.  The mattress focuses on giving the traditional memory-foam support and comfort while focusing on making it so that the mattress does not sleep hot.  It includes:

  • Made with hundreds of foam cushions to offer personalized support
  • Made with premium foams (depending on model), including AirCool memory foam, Beauty Cloud memory foam, ContourFit memory foam, and Comfort Response latex

The Beautyrest Rechrage Memory Foam Plus ranges dramatically in price depending on options and features, but again expect to pay thousands of dollars if you’re interested.

Beautyrest Comforpedic/Comforpedic IQ

NOTE: The Comforpedic line was discontinued in early 2015, however many retailers are still carrying them until inventory expires.  If you want a memory foam mattress from Beautyrest, I would recommend sticking with the Beautyrest Recharge Memory Foam Plus.

Final Recommendation

The Simmons Beautyrest line is obviously quite varied, and at this point includes most of Simmons’ most popular mattresses.  Overall these are some quality mattresses, it will be interesting to see if the Beautyrest line can hold up against many of the new online mattress startups that are trying to match their quality and undercut their prices.

Thanks for the info you have provided, although I am having trouble finding the links to your full reviews of these beautyrest mattresses or your in-depth analyses. We are trying to find find detailed comparison info about the Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Kenosha Place II Plush Mattress from US Mattress.com vs the Beautyrest Allies Plush Mattress from Macys, which are ultimately the same with different names, but would like to know any differences that exist. Any help or information you can reply with would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

Hey Joe, My husband and I are looking into purchasing the Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid…but can’t quite decide to get the firm or plush. Do you have any suggestions? I was informed there were 4 levels- firm, plush, ultimate plush, ultimate luxury. So technically plush is 2nd in firmness..is that correct? I vote for firm, but my husband votes for way softer. We have a dilemma. Help!!

    Joe Auer says February 10, 2016

    That is correct. If you sleep on your side more, then it probably makes more sense to do the plush versus the firm. It depends on things like your weight as well. I personally wouldn’t say to go softer than the plush.

Hi Joe,
I need to buy a queen mattress set for a rental property. I also sleep on it during the summer. I’d like it to last. Suggestions? Was hoping not to spend more than 1,000 for mattress boxspring and frame if possible. Or, What about memory foam on a platform? So overwhelmed!

    Joe Auer says June 1, 2016

    Hi Jean – I would check out my main mattress reviews page as a starting point. Easiest thing to do is find a mattress you like, then buy a frame/platform from Amazon (or another inexpensive retailer).

Hi I’m thinking about buying the Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Hybrid Kalista Plush but I can’t find any review on the mattress. I’m worried about sagging after a year or so. What is your opinion?

Joe, just happily purchased a Beautyrest Black Hybrid Plus Wellington from Mattress Firm, I had done a lot of research on mattress’ and a little confused about the difference between Black Hybrid Plus Wellington and Black Tatiana ( on the Beautyrest site) – a difference i do see is the Wellington has 2 layers of the Micro Coil where the Tatiana has only 1. The prices are very similar tho, a little confused- any clarifications you could give would be great! Thanks

Hi Joe
Can you tell me the difference between Mattress Firms Black Hybrid Plus Wellington and the Black Tatiana? We just purchased the Wellington ($3600 – we caught a sale weekend Columbus Day) and really like it – but wonder what is the comparible on other Mattress Co’s and even Simmons Beautyrest’s own site has the Tatiana as their Top Mattress.

I’m looking to buy a Beautyrest hybrid recharge plush. Jordan’s furnature in MA calls this mattress Sarai and Sears calls what appears to be tested same mattress Messala. If the are both recharge hybrid plush does that mean they are truly the same mattress?

    Joe Auer says December 19, 2016

    Hi Lisa – sometimes they are identical, and sometimes they differ slightly. Unfortunately it’s really impossible to know for sure (they do this intentionally).

Im thinking about purchasing a Simmons Beautyrest Elite Everley exclusive to Sleep Country Canada. The sales people say;
Highest coil count in Simmons Beautyrest Elite Line
Advanced Coil Edge
Surface gel Technology Foam plus wool/silk blend fibre
Two titanium lumber support posturized bands for extra support
Aircooled beautyEdge ventilated Foam for breathability
Sale Price $1250
They say its a firm mattress. IMy wife and I are bigger people with me weighing in about 250lbs. Are these mattresses any good, or just average, obviously anyone you ask in the store says, Yeah great mattress, but what is the real lowdown. Since it is exclusive to Sleep Country Canada there is minimum information on the net or any other stores?

So glad I just found your review! We purchased a Simmons Vanderbilt plush new generation 400 pillow top 6 years ago, love it and still looks NEW! Now shopping for a king size in the same product. It has been extremely difficult for all the new model names, levels and different store “names”! Just haven’t found a salesman I trust.

so I just purchased the Black Hybrid Mattress queen…. I get very hot cannot sleep .
I have checked reviews and see that some people get very hot when sleep on 100% foam mattress . Any ideas to make it cooler if not I am taking it back

Thank You

    Hi JoAnn – If you’re sticking with the current mattress, best thing to do is change the sheets/comforter (and mattress protector if you have one). All of those have a big impact on sleeping cool as well.
