History of Beautyrest
The history of Beautyrest starts in 1925, when Simmons Bedding Company first developed one of the most groundbreaking technologies ever to be introduced to the mattress industry: a machine that produced Pocketed Coils by coiling wires and inserting them into fabric pockets. As a result of this process, the luxurious comfort of Pocketed Coil technology instantly became widely affordable to the masses – and would go on to transform the way the world sleeps.
Pocketed Coil Technology
In each Beautyrest mattress is a support layer made with Beautyrest's innovative Pocketed Coils. Featuring individual coils wrapped in fabric, Beautyrest's system of Pocketed Coils works while you sleep to provide targeted support; in many Beautyrest mattresses, Pocketed Coils are combined with energy foam and gel memory foam for the ultimate in responsive comfort.
Meticulously crafted from high-carbon steel, each Pocketed Coil that goes into a Beautyrest mattress is designed to act as a custom-gauge coil – uniquely-shaped and pre-loaded to deliver responsive support.
A Cooler Night's Sleep
Beautyrest mattresses that keep you cool are able to do so through PCM, or phase change material. Used to absorb heat, Beautyrest's phase change material works to regulate your body temperature while you sleep, so that you stay cool when the weather's hot – and warm when it's cold.
Choosing the Right Beautyrest Hybrid Mattress for You
Here’s how to choose the right Beautyrest hybrid mattress for your sleeping position. (Hint: it’s all in the comfort level!)
The position in which you prefer to sleep plays a critical role in deciding which mattress is right for you. Different sleeping positions place different levels of pressure on the joints, and different mattresses are designed for a specific sleeping position in mind.
The good news is that when it comes to Beautyrest hybrid mattresses, half the puzzle of picking out the perfect mattress for you is already solved! Here’s why:
- There are two factors to consider when trying to decide on the best mattress for your sleeping position – mattress type and mattress comfort level. Mattress comfort levels come in plush, medium and firm, and determine how soft or supportive the mattress feels overall. Mattress type is the main content inside the mattress. For example, a mattress type of innerspring will feature mostly innersprings.
To know whether or not a particular mattress type is right for you, it is often recommended that you try it out for yourself in the store. If you can’t, or are still unsure, your safest bet is to go with hybrid – a mattress type that combines both innersprings and memory foam, designed to cater to the support and comfort needs of a wide variety of sleepers.
Since Beautyrest hybrid mattresses eliminate the chore of having to sort through which mattress types will and won’t work for your preferred sleeping position, all that’s left to do is choose a comfort level. Here’s what you need to know to get the job done!
Choosing a Beautyrest Hybrid Mattress Comfort Level
When it comes to comfort level, Beautyrest hybrid firm mattresses bring a tighter, extra-supportive feel and are often best suited for stomach sleepers (for whom firm support is generally required to help prevent the spine from “caving” into the mattress). Beautyrest hybrid plush mattresses bring a touch more softness than other mattresses and are often best suited for side sleepers, who tend to prefer extra cushioning for the shoulders and hips. Find yourself switching positions? Go with a Beautyrest hybrid medium mattress – which finds that perfect sweet spot between plush and firm for a balanced sleeping experience.
