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.

My wife and I are looking to buy yet another mattress due to two bad mattress decisions in 18 Months.
The first was a Dormeo mattress in 01/2018 which we bought the adjustable foundation for at that time.
After almost a year, we went to the Nebraska Furniture Mart.
We explained to salesperson that I was having total body soreness and poor night's sleep.
I am a side sleeper, mostly right side and my wife is a back sleeper.
We came out with Sealy smb Winnifred plush mattress with pillow top.
We put this on our adjustable bed base, which the salesperson said was fine.
And now, it's June 2019 and we haven't slept on the bed for the last week.
My wife works late, so she sleeps in other room most nights.
I started to have Sacroiliitis to the point that I couldn't even bend down to put my socks on in the morning.
For reference I am about to turn 36 and she is 26, but her pain is only in nights she sleeps in the room.
I have an older Serta Perfect Sleeper North Shore luxury(cashmere luxury) pillow top that my back feels better on.
I did sleep on a Simmons Beautyrest plush, over the weekend at a Holiday inn, and woke up with zero pain.
I have read some on your blog and realize my first mistake was memory foam type mattress by Dormeo.
However, with my recent purchase of this Sealy mattress, my mistake was that its Sealy.
And I noted that they were bought out by Stern and Foster, which was acquired by tempurpedic.
I am just needing something that will work, price is important, now that this will be third mattress, none of which were cheap.
Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
If you know of somewhere I could try the mattress before buying, that would be great.
I just can't afford to make another mistake.
Good Morning Lang,
Well, it looks like you’ve been raked over the coals, so to speak.
The mattress industry has gone bad...all the major brands have been sold to investors who are using memory foam to recoup their investment and turn a profit.
Those name brands could be trusted to make a quality product.
Now, quality isn’t even a part their business model.
Selling more mattresses more frequently to the same people, is all that matters.
For the record, Sealy acquired Stearns & Foster decades ago.
In 2013, Tempurpedic bought them both.
The adjustable bed base is a good product for hanging out in your bedroom...watching TV, playing on your laptop...etc.
It has almost zero value when it comes to the quality of your sleep.
In fact, when the head is raised, the bulk of your body weight shifts from being evenly distributed across the mattress to being supported by the spot in the mattress just under your butt. That’s that spot where the mattress that will wear out first.
The Beautyrest you slept on, uses an individually pocketed coil unit, which contours to the shape of your body and maintains the natural alignment of your spine.
THIS is why you slept so well on it.
Unfortunately, their plush models use a very thin wire for the coils and the upholstery is memory foam. Neither component wears well, at all.
For average weight adults, we recommend starting with a Platinum Series Beautyrest.
Between 200-250 lbs, it’s the Black Series Beautyrest...both in Luxury Firm.
To prevent the premature wear due to the memory foam upholstery, add a Pure Bliss 2” Plush Natural Talalay Latex Topper, which will insulate you from the memory foam and cause the mattress to last far longer than the manufacturer intended.
The latex topper is key to comfort and longevity.
Without it, you’d be throwing more of your money away.
Stores won’t display this.
It’s counter to their objective of making you a frequent customer.
Here are links to both Series of Beautyrest and to the latex topper.
