Recommend a Mattress like the Simmons Beautyrest World Class Pillow Top.

We had a Simmons World Class Beautyrest Mattress and was told they are not made anymore.
We were so pleased with that Beautyrest, we went out and bought a Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Mattress.
But, it's nowhere near the mattress Simmons called the World Class Pillow Top .
We see where you advise people who need a new mattress.
What do you recommend for us to buy?
Company name and model of mattress, Please sir.
Thanks, Tommy & Julia
Hi Tommy & Julia,
Besides this question, you posed another on Facebook.
The Facebook question, about a chemical free mattress, has been answered.
The response to this question conflicts with the Facebook question.
Simmons uses memory foam, which is toxic.
When Simmons originally went to using memory foam, several years ago, the memory foam was being cured, so there was no off gassing of the toxic chemicals used to make it.
More recently, there have been a lot of complaints about it.
If I were to answer this question without having seen the Facebook question, I would recommend buying a Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Series mattress in a Medium Firm and adding a soft all natural latex topper to replicate the feel of a pillowtop....(The World Class name has changed to Platinum).
This sleep system combination is the best way to get the longevity of your original Beautyrest, which had no memory.
Memory foam, besides being toxic, is short lived.
An all natural latex topper prevents the premature wear of the memory foam, but won’t save you from the toxic chemical off gassing produced by the memory foam.
The thing that makes a Beautyrest mattress so comfortable is the individually pocketed coils, which contour to the shape of the body and maintain the natural alignment of the spine.
The mattress in the Facebook post also uses that same coil system.
So, if you’re going with the chemical free mattress in the Facebook post, you’ll want the ultra plush model.
