Mattress Comparison

Beautyrest 2018 Mattress Review and Comparison Guide

By Jack Mitcham

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!

As you may have figured out, the same mattress can be sold under different names at different retailers. Other times, a retailer will have minor “exclusive” features to make it even more confusing. The following is a guide to comparing this year’s Simmons Beautyrest models between different retailers.

Have you considered an online brand?  Here are some of our favorites, or if you’d prefer scroll down to view the comparison chart.

Beautyrest has three main levels: Black, Platinum, and Silver.

Beautyrest Black

These are a step above the Platinum models. Since they tend to be sold under the same name everywhere, the few important things to take into consideration when shopping for one of these mattresses are the service level, return policies, and any free gifts that a retailer is offering. A retailer that earns high marks for all of these areas is US Mattress. Below are links for the entire line for Beautyrest Black.

Beautyrest Platinum

Beautyrest came out with new Platinum models this year. Compared to the 2017 models, the 2018 models are very similar. The foams up top were rearranged a bit, but they use the same coil system underneath. (Some retailers are still using the 2017 models. I will update this chart as new retailers start carrying the 2018 models. See my 2017 chart if your model is not on the list)

Beautyrest Silver

The Beautyrest Silver is the “entry level” to the Beautyrest line, which is the flagship line of the Simmons brand. (They also have the “Beauty Sleep” collection, which is a step down and is more suited to guest rooms or temporary use).

As of writing this, Beautyrest is still using the Silver models that came out in 2017 (they came out with new Platinum models early this year). I will update this article with new information if new Silver models get released. The following is a chart comparing Silver models at some of the bigger retailers:

About the charts

Here are a few comments about the above charts:

  • The models might not be identical; merely comparable. For example, Macy’s has an exclusive lineup in which there are some small differences. For example, they use a thin layer of titanium in the center third of the bed. It’s barely noticeable, but it exists. The foams and cover may be a little different from the national brands, too.
  • Mattress Firm is a major retailer, but their Beautyrest lineup is largely comprised of exclusives and models that came out in 2015. I have more information about that in my Mattress Firm Comparison Shopping article.
  • When comparing prices, be sure to pick all of the same options (i.e. same size, same boxspring,) and take into consideration tax and delivery.
  • If comparison shopping is too stressful, consider getting an online mattress. Honestly, you can get just as good, if not a better mattress at half the price.  Check out my coupons for the latest deals

BEAUTYREST 2018 REVIEW

You can find Beautyrest mattresses online and at retailers throughout the U.S. In 2018, Beautyrest added a third line of mattresses, a.k.a. Black, a touch glitzier than Platinum, to their Silver and Platinum lines. It’s a variation on a theme—big manufacturer floods zone with more options for more people. But it’s a theme Beautyrest has the national presence to deliver.

Like the 2017 offerings, the 2018 includes multiple lines, in this case Silver (basic), Platinum (nicely priced high-end) and Black (a touch glitzier than Platinum overall). Beautyrest comes through with coil-only options and hybrid options in all three classes.

You want to know what has changed, right? Well, the Black line is new for 2018. The 2018 Silvers are the same as 2017, the 2018 Platinums were modified slightly. Again, the charts are meant to help you identify the Beautyrest options wherever you’re shopping for the 2018 versions. They don’t include the Black line because those are sold as is wherever you go.

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 Macy’s or Sears. The Chestnut Hill and Cedar Ridge mattresses at Macy’s are the Beautyrest 2018 Platinum mattresses but have been modified enough by Macy’s to stand alone.

That’s the downside to a big retailer like Simmons; the options are overwhelming. The chart is meant to help you sort it if you dare.

    I am thinking about purchasing the Bradford plush pillow top legends queen mattress. Please evaluate

    What is difference in Macy’s Chestnut Hill 15″ luxury plush pillow top than Phillipsburg III 15″ plush pillow top? Your report says that Macy’s line not an exact match. The forms & cover may be a little different. What does that mean? Hopefully, not less quality.

  3. Does anyone know what would be similar to the Beauty Rest “Gabby” extra firm? It was the the most comfortable mattress I’ve ever owned, but it has been discontinued.

  4. Does anyone know the other names that Mattress Firm’s exclusive Simmons Beautyrest Legend Winward Luxury Medium Mattress is sold under?

  5. We slept on. Beautyrest Recharge Plus mattress. Best thing ever. I don’t see this line in 2019. Any clue what it’s called now? Thank you

  6. Don’t buy the BeautyRest McFarland Legends at Mattress Firm. It is the MOST miserable sleep I have ever experienced, including sleeping on a gravel pad at a camp ground with only my down sleeping bag under me. The mattress is unbearably hot. I cannot even wait for the extremely firm memory foam to “break in” (120 days) because of the temperature issue. The mattresses in the showrooms are already broken-in, so the mattress you receive will be much, much stiffer. We have had it for only 4 nights, and it is already developing a dip at the hips and I have been laying and sitting all over the bed during the day to prevent uneven break-in. It also smells. I have barely slept in 4 nights – waking up multiple times to shift positions (due to the memory foam impression) and to constantly cover and uncover myself. It is hard to get out of the bed, even though it has the least memory foam of all the hybrid mattresses at Mattress Firm. We spent over $4000 for this bed. I miss the old 20 year old mattress with the broken wires, pressure points, and slump at the hips – I can’t believe I’m saying that!

  7. We slept on a Simmons Beautyrest Recharge (model number: 700000879-1050) at a Holiday Inn in Shelbyville, KY. I called corporate and they couldn’t tell me what the mattress was so I could purchase it. Are you able to give me any more information about it? Thank you.

  8. I am trying to find the consumer equivalent to the Simmons Beautyrest Cape Breton Pillow Top Mattress used by Wyndham. This is a “hotel only” model which is not available to the general public but I’m sure they have a consumer model which is close (or exact) in specs. Any help is appreciated.
