Beautyrest Mattress Comparison Guide and Review 2017

By The Mattress Nerd

As you may have noticed, it’s difficult to comparison shop for mattresses between retailers because they often have different names for what seems to be the same exact mattress. Or, the retailer will claim their mattress is an exclusive, or their model has some feature that nobody else has that makes it different. How then will you take advantage of the price match guarantees that so many places offer? We’re here to help!

Retail mattress stores often make it difficult to comparison shop mattresses. Each retailer will have a different name for the same (or almost the same) product. Furthermore, not every store lists detailed specs about whats in their mattresses, so it can be even more confusing. Sometimes, a mattress selling for about $1,000 at one store is going for over $2,000 at another store.

To help counter this, I’ve put together these two comparison charts for Simmons Beautyrest.

Beautyrest has several different lineups. The “Silver” lineup is the entry level Beautyrest line. They have regular innerspring mattresses and “hybrid” mattresses which have a flatter top and thinner quilt layer, putting you closer to the foam layer. Older model years used to call this level “Classic” or “Recharge.”

There is also the “Platinum” level, which is their mid-range to higher end mattresses. These used to be called “World Class” in previous model years. These also come in regular innerspring models and hybrid models.

The two comparison charts below will help you compare those models at various retailers.

A few notes:

  • The mattresses might not be identical, but they will be close. Some retailers will add a small “exclusive” feature which is generally cosmetic or minor to make it technically a different mattress
  • Mattress Firm has a lot of exclusives in the Beautyrest brand. See my article on comparison shopping at Mattress Firm for suggestions.
  • Macy’s doesn’t have the Platinum lineup. They still have ones they’re calling “World Class.” Their World Class models are similar to the Platinum ones, but have enough differences that I wasn’t comfortable putting them in the chart
  • When comparing prices, make sure you’re comparing apples to apples. Make sure that you’re comparing the same size, whether or not it has a boxspring, how much delivery is, etc.
  • If comparison shopping is too stressful, consider getting a Tomorrow Sleep, which is by the makers of Beautyrest. It’s a direct to consumer mattress by Simmons (technically Serta Simmons Bedding) with a free return policy. Read my Tomorrow Sleep review here.

BEAUTYREST 2017 REVIEW

The 2017 Beautyrest offerings give you lots to choose from in their Silver (basic) and Platinum (higher end) lines. That is what you’ll be getting if you feel most comfortable shopping with a major national retailer.

Both lines feature traditional innerspring mattresses and hybrid mattresses that combine a revamped coil system with a foam layer at the top. The basic Silver line used to be called “Classic” or “Recharge” lines in previous years. The nicely priced higher-end Platinum line used to be known as the “World Class” line. Don’t forget those names Depending on where you’re shopping, they all mean something.

The charts above help you sort out every Beautyrest 2017 permutation.

The Silver line features level 1, level 2—the coil system models—and hybrids. The chart for the Silver line above breaks down all of the names and firmness levels by their official names, their U.S. names and what they’re known as if you’re shopping at Amazon, Macy’s or Sears.

The Platinum line includes the coil system-only and the hybrid options. The chart breaks down names and firmness levels by their official names, their U.S. names what they’re known by if you’re looking for them at Amazon or Sears. You won’t find the Platinum at Macy’s. But know that they sell very similar mattresses under the old name of “World Class.”

Remember not every mattress will be identical from column to column. Retailers can add some minor feature to differentiate it from other competitors. One retailer that exploits this technique is Mattress Firm.

Beautyrest has the heft among the retail marketplace to flood it with multiple collections. Their 2017 offerings included both hybrid and innerspring models at different firmness levels and prices. It’s what you should expect from a national brand and that’s what this Simmons Beautyrest collection delivers here.
