The Charcoal Coast Plush Pillow Top is a hybrid mattress that is part of the Simmons Beautyrest Silver collection. The Silver collection is the most affordable of Beautyrest’s mattress lines.

Construction Overview

The Charcoal Coast Plush Pillow Top mattress is approximately 15.5” high and contains:

  • Dualcool™ Technology Fiber, a silver-infused material that is meant to prevent bacteria and mold growth and help keep people cool
  • Airfeel™ Foam, a temperature-regulating foam
  • Geltouch® Foam, a type of foam that relieves pressure
  • Aircool® Gel Memory Foam, a cooling foam that also relieves pressure on the joints
  • Backcare® Support, meaning that firmer innerspring coils are placed in the center third of the mattress to help support the back
  • 815 Density Plush Beautyrest® Pocketed Coil® Technology, mattress coils that offer support and contouring

This is a plush mattress, meaning it should feel very soft. Because it’s a hybrid mattress, it should also feel supportive.

The mattress features a number of cooling technologies, including Dualcool™ Technology Fiber, Aircool® Gel Memory Foam, and Airfeel™ Foam. People shouldn’t be sleeping hot on this mattress.

Firmness Level

Simmons states this is a plush pillow-top. Plush mattresses are typically a good fit for side sleepers, because they help relieve pressure on the shoulders, hips, and knees.

That being said, we cannot give a more specific assessment of the firmness without further information.

Common Praise: What Makes This Mattress Stand Out?

  • The Charcoal Coast Plush Pillow Top could be a good pick for people who sleep hot. It contains cooling technologies including Dualcool™ Technology Fiber, Airfeel™ Foam, and Aircool® Gel Memory Foam.
  • This plush pillow-top model may feel comfortable for people who sleep on their side because it should cushion the joints and relieve pressure.
  • The Charcoal Coast Plush Pillow Top is a hybrid mattress, which means it is ideal for people who like a softer mattress but don’t like to sink too far into their mattress.

Common Complaints And Other Things To Note

  • If someone is a stomach sleeper, a soft, plush mattress may not properly support their spine while they sleep. This could potentially lead to back pain in the future. As a result, soft mattresses are recommended more for side sleepers than they are for stomach sleepers.
  • Some people find that pillow-top mattresses wear down more easily, as the fabric in the pillow-top becomes compressed and uneven over time.
  • If people enjoy the slow, sinking feeling of memory foam, the Charcoal Coast Plush Pillow Top is not an ideal pick. While it does contain many foam layers, they likely won’t get the feel of a classic, all-foam mattress.

Why Should People Choose This Over The Other Silver Models?

This mattress is a pillow-top model. Other mattresses in the collection do not have the pillow-top layer.

According to the Simmons website, this mattress is “plush.” Other mattresses in the Beautyrest Silver collection are described as “firm” or “luxury firm.” This suggests this mattress is on the softer side.


This innerspring coil mattress is 15.5” high and contains Dualcool™ Technology Fiber, Airfeel™ Foam, Geltouch® Foam, Aircool® Gel Memory Foam, Backcare® Support, and 815 Density Plush Beautyrest® Pocketed Coil® Technology.

The Charcoal Coast Plush Pillow Top mattress is described as a plush pillow-top, meaning it’s probably a soft mattress that may be ideal for people who sleep on their side. Stomach sleepers may need a firmer mattress.
