Beautyrest Silver Collection Overview

If you’ve ever been mattress shopping, you’ve probably looked at a Simmons Beautyrest mattress. The brand has been around for a very long time and has many different collections and models that can be found in retailers across the country.

Beautyrest mattresses may be popular, but finding the right one for you can be tricky. Collections offer different models and within those models are various comfort levels. To make it even more confusing, retailers will attach their own special names to models, making it very difficult to compare (or price compare) between stores.

We’ve taken Beautyrest’s Silver Collection and broken down every detail of each mattress to help you narrow down which models may fit your needs. This information will also help you determine what to ask for when you start your shopping process.

Who Makes Beautyrest Mattresses?

Beautyrest is the flagship brand of Simmons Bedding Company, which was founded in 1870 and is based in Atlanta, Ga. Wisconsin entrepreneur Zalmon G. Simmons started the company. In 1925, engineer John Franklin Gail designed a machine that would coil wire and insert it into fabric sleeves — thus creating the “pocketed coil” design unique to Beautyrest mattresses.

What Sets The Beautyrest Silver Collection Apart From The Black And Platinum Collections?

Currently, the mattresses on the Simmons Beautyrest website are sorted into three categories: Silver, Platinum, and Black.

  • Silver is the most affordable category. The most expensive mattress in this category costs $1,999 for a Queen size.
  • Platinum is more expensive than Silver. The most expensive Platinum mattress costs $2,999 for a Queen size.
  • Black is the most expensive line, featuring luxury models with prices up to $4,799 for a Queen size.

What Type Of Beds/Frames Do These Mattresses Work With?

Per the Simmons website, you should use a Beautyrest Silver mattress with “a new Beautyrest® or Simmons® foundation. An old foundation unit may not provide sufficient support.”

If you plan to use a foundation, you should also use a frame that provides “rigid center support as well as support for the head, foot, and sides.” The warranty specifically states that “for any queen or king frame that does not have a metal center support, you must use at least five hardwood or metal slats (1″ x 4″) and add legs to the three center slats. By not providing a sufficient supportive frame, damage can occur to the product that will void your warranty.”

If you are using the mattress without a foundation, Simmons recommends that you:

“Add a solid platform on top of any open slatted mattress support system in which the spaces between the slats are greater than 2 inches (5 centimeters). Hardboard, plywood, particle board or a similar material, inserted between the mattress and the slatted platform, supporting the entire surface of the mattress will provide appropriate support. Use of an open slatted mattress support system in which the spaces between the slats are greater than 2 inches (5 centimeters), without the addition of a solid platform, will damage your mattress and void your warranty.”

What Materials And Components Are Standard Across The Beautyrest Silver Collection?

Dualcool™ Technology Fiber is used in every model in the Beautyrest Silver collection. According to the Simmons website, this is a “soft, supple fiber enhanced with silver to dissipate heat and moisture, inhibiting the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew.”

All of the models in this collection also contain Beautyrest® Pocketed Coil® Technology, either in 1000 Density or 815 Density. These individually wrapped coils, which are designed specifically by Simmons, are meant to provide even, comfortable support.

Many models in this collection contain Aircool® Memory Foam and/or Aircool® Gel Memory Foam, which is designed to circulate air and keep you cool at night.

Who Might Choose A Beautyrest Silver Mattress?

  • People who are looking for an accessible price point. The Beautyrest Silver collection is priced competitively and is significantly cheaper than the Platinum and Black collections.
  • People who like the feel of an innerspring or hybrid mattress. The coils are designed to contour to your body and support it while you rest.
  • People who run hot at night might be drawn to the cooling technology materials such as Dualcool™ Technology Fiber, Aircool® Foam, and Aircool® Gel Memory Foam.

Who Might Not Choose A Beautyrest Silver Mattress?

  • People who want a memory foam mattress without coils. All the mattresses in the Beautyrest Silver collection contain individually pocketed coils.
  • People who are looking for a mattress with adjustable firmness levels. You cannot adjust the firmness of a Simmons Beautyrest Silver mattress.

Common Praise: What Makes These Mattresses Stand Out?

  • Buyers enjoy the DualCool™ Technology, which helps keep them cool at night and prevents overheating during sleep.
  • Many people say that Beautyrest mattresses have good motion isolation technology. This means users aren’t disturbed when a partner or pet moves around at night.

Common Complaints And Other Things To Note

  • Some buyers report that their Beautyrest Silver mattress started sagging in the middle after just a few months of use, leading to discomfort during the night.
  • Due to a process called off-gassing, brand new Beautyrest Silver mattresses may give off a strong chemical odor. This should dissipate within a few days, but some buyers say the chemical smell lingered for much longer than they expected.
  • A number of Beautyrest Silver mattresses are tall — up to 15.5” high. This can make it difficult for people to get in and out of them. Tall mattresses may also require special deep pocket sheets, which are an added expense if you don’t already own them.

Trial Periods

If you buy your Simmons Beautyrest Silver mattress from a third-party retailer, that retailer may offer a trial period. Details depend on the retailer, model, and other variables.

Warranty Details

Your mattress will come with a law tag on it. The warranty code on that tag will denote the specific warranty offered with your product.
