I am trying to decide between the Plush tight top or Medium Firm tight top Simmons Beautyrest.
I am a 110 lb., side/stomach sleeper, and my husband is 6', 200lb. side/back sleeper.
We do not want any memory foam, if possible as we both sleep hot.
From my research it seems both these models have memory foam.
There doesn't seem to be any other models for us to try out, that doesn't have memory foam.
I understand, from reading your blogs, that a latex topper will keep us from sleeping hot.
Does that really work?!
You bet it works...works well and lasts a long time.
Latex is the only product that you can buy, that more than pays for itself...as it also extends the life of the mattress.
The latex topper insulates you from the memory foam in the mattress, and allows you to sleep cooler.
When choosing a Simmons Beautyrest, it's imperative that you DO NOT opt for a "plush" model.
It will lose its shape quickly under a large man, as the gauge of wire used to make the coils of their plush models, is much thinner than the gauge of wire used to make the coils in their firmer models.
Go for the medium firm and add the soft latex topper.
What we recommend is the Simmons Beautyrest in Medium Firm.
Add to that, a Suite Sleep 2" Soft Organic Latex Topper.
This mattress, also uses a double tempered pocketed coil unit with latex upholstery.
The coil count is higher and the latex is better than in the Wolf mattress.
This particular model is very firm...too firm to sleep on comfortably.
The latex topper will do two things...provide the surface comfort you and your wife need to sleep deeply, and prevent the mattress from wearing by absorbing much of your body weight.
Latex is and has been the best upholstery material for the last 100 years.
High quality latex lasts for years. So as the years go by, you should only need to replace the topper from time to time.
Since there is a substantial difference in weight between you and your wife, it will be imperative that you rotate your new mattress regularly to attain more even wear, which will extend the comfort life of the bed.
Rotate it once a month.
If the mattress is a king size, I suggest a quarter turn rotation.
Only a king is square enough to pull this off.
The quarter turn rotation will enhance the even wear of the mattress.
This mattress comes with white glove delivery, which includes set-up and removal of your old mattress.
Delivery is free and there's no sales tax.
Keeping your mattress clean and dry will increase its longevity.
We recommend our Organic Cotton Waterproof Mattress Protector.
My husband and I have a Simmons Beautyrest World Class Silhouette Plush in an Olympic Queen.
It was handed down to us and we really like it, but we need a king size.
We like that when the other moves, the bed remains solid without any real noticeable movement.
We are in search for that same bed, but it seems that they are sold out. Can you direct us in the right way?
My husband is 5’10-165# I am 5’4”- 130#.
He wiggles and is all over during the night and I sleep on my stomach and side.
Thank you for any help,
That mattress is about 20 years old.
Simmons has gone through many changes since then.
In fact, Simmons isn’t even owned by Simmons, anymore.
An investment group bought them years ago.
That mattress isn’t out of stock. It’s no longer being made.
A new plush Beautyrest won’t last more than a few years under your sizes...due to the memory foam upholstery...that wasn’t even invented yet, when your mattress was new.
Memory foam is specifically designed to cause a mattress to need frequent replacing.
It’s all about profits, now, and not at all about quality...as it had been back then.
What makes a Beautyrest so comfortable is the individually pocketed coils.
Each coil moves independently from the others....contouring to the shape of the body and maintaining the natural alignment of the spine.
Today, that same contouring support can now be had by any number of manufacturers.
Unfortunately, most of those are using memory foam, as well.
Here is a link to a mattress I know you will enjoy...and for many years.
The Wolf Hybrid Tulah Plush Eurotop Mattress has No Memory Foam in it...upholstered with latex and polyurethane foams...the same upholstery materials used by Simmons when your mattress was new...and sporting an individually pocketed coil unit.
Magniflex Adjustable Bed Base. The Uno Smart adjustable base created by Magniflex is a product of German engineering that has been designed to provide our customers with the highest level of well-being with several benefits to ensure satisfied customers.
Because the components are of such high quality, it’s not as soft as it sounds.
This mattress comes with white glove delivery.
Delivery includes set up in your bedroom and removal of your old mattress/set.
Delivery is free and there’s no sales tax.
We recommend using a waterproof mattress protector with every mattress.
Keeping the upholstery materials clean and dry will extend the life of the mattress.
