My husband and I have been shopping for a new mattress and we're considering the Simmons Beautyrest Legend Luxury Firm.
We have a 5 year old Stearns and Foster pillowtop, right now, that started out great but is now sagging and too soft for both of us.
Last July, I herniated a disc (C7) and found sleeping on the Simmons Shakespeare Firm that we have in our guest room more comfortable.
For months I could only sleep on my back and this provided me the most support and chance of rest.
Now that I've healed, somewhat, I am able to sleep on my side and find that the Simmons Shakespeare Firm is too hard on my shoulder.
So, I end up switching positions a lot.
I have read a lot on your website, googled Simmons, and can't seem to find out much info on the Legend series.
I was told by the salesperson that this line is the best Simmons makes.
I believe it offers the best, in terms of stability when sharing a bed (partner doesn't feel it when the other moves).
It feels firm, not particularly "comfy", like one gets with a plush or pillowtop. But, it's softer than the Shakespeare I have at home.
What is your opinion of the Legend Series?
I hesitate to get sucked into that because of what we've experienced with our Stearns and Foster.
I worry about its longevity, especially considering that they're asking more than $4000.00 for it.
My husband is 6'3 235 lbs, I am 5'5, 125 lbs.
He prefers a slightly softer mattress than I do, but clearly has more body mass so it seems like he could benefit from something firmer.
He does not sleep well on our guest room bed, the Simmons Shakespeare Luxury Firm. It's too hard for him.
What do you recommend given our situation? We are looking for a king size bed.
Thank you, Sue
Everybody sleeps differently as 1 size does not fit when it comes to sleep. I always used down and feather but found them too HOT..... I started using the long strand Mulberry Silk filled Duvet Comforter from a niche boutique brand Down Under Bedding and I'm not sweating all the time and sleeping better since it is so light and flat. It even has those corner ties to attach to the duvet cover to prevent shifting
