I recently went to a hotel and fell in love with the Simmons Beautyrest World Class FelicityII Super Pillow Top Plush. After googling this mattress I came across an answer you gave to Kathleen in Feb. 20, 2011. You recommended a Beautyrest World Class Raleigh 18737. I have learned that this line has been discontinued.
I am presently sleeping in a 20 year old tube waterbed with mattress top. I wake up with a backache every morning and blame it on my age (53), arthritis and slight scoliosis however I'm thinking it might be time for a new mattress. While I like a firm mattress I loved the bed I slept in at the hotel.
Since you are the expert, I would like to know which type mattress you would recommend for my husband and I. I am now leaning towards a Simmons but am not sure which type to get. Thanks so much for your help.
That hotel mattress is engineered for comfort, but falls way short when it comes to durability.
Any given hotel room isn't used every night. Even so, the hotel will only get 4 years out of a plush pillowtop Beautyrest. In a master bedroom, you'd be lucky to get half that. The pillowtops wear out quickly and the coils in a plush Beautyrest are very thin.
A human body requires firm support for skeletal and muscular systems...and a comfortable sleeping surface for relief of pressure points and blood flow for a greater depth of sleep.
You can get those things with the mattress you asked about...for about a year. If your budget allows for a new mattress every year, then go for it. However, if you are like most of us, that kind of unnecessary expenditure is unacceptable.
Start with a luxury firm Beautyrest and add 2" of soft latex for the feel you want that will last for many years. Latex is extraordinarily comfortable and extremely resilient. So much so, that it will absorb much of your body weight and in so doing, extend the life of the mattress.
In the long run, this combination sleep system is far less expensive than frequently replacing any of today's mattresses.
Here are links to a Simmons Beautyrest World Class Annapolis Place Luxury Firm model and to the latex toppers.
You can order on line. Delivery is free and there's no sales tax.
