I need a mattress for a daybed. I am interested in the Simmons Beautyrest Silver Great Lakes Cove.
Would this mattress be compatible with a daybed?
Thank you, Kaila
What you need to be mindful of, is the support that the daybed provides.
There are 3 types of support...
1) Link spring with no center support
2) Link spring with a center support.
3) Rails and Bunk Board.
All day beds can accommodate any of these types of support.
Of these, the third provides the best support....so get that if you can.
The first is something you do not want. Any mattress, on this link spring, will sag before too long.
Otherwise, any mattress works with a daybed.
For sleeping, the Simmons Beautyrest Great Lakes Cove in Luxury Firm, is an excellent choice....having an individually pocketed coil system, which contours to the shape of the body and maintaining the natural alignment of the spine.
Greenspring Liberty Firm Euro Top Experience deeper, more restorative sleep with the Liberty Firm Euro Mattress. Lush helpings of natural ingredients come together with a foam encased coil unit to gratify your hunger for luxury, affordability and eco-integrity.
These are also made with an individually pocketed coil unit and upholstered with latex.
The coil count is higher and the coil are stronger...and these mattresses are more elaborately made.
The advantage of the individually pocketed coils is that it contours to the shape of the body and maintains the natural alignment of the spine.
There is also a substantial reduction in motion transfer.
Latex is and has been the best upholstery material for the last 100 years
Memory foam, conversely, has proven to be the worst...over it’s 20 year history...despite the great job they do in promoting it.
The problem is, that there is no one policing this industry.
You can’t even rely on Consumer Reports.
They don’t understand how the temperature sensitivity of memory foam works.

Or, “The Easy Fit Foundation”, which is conventional looking, and requires a frame.
