╔ About the Serta Simmons Beautyrest Black mattress ╗

The Beautyrest Black Mattress is manufactured by Simmons Bedding Co., a mattress company founded in 1871. They’ve sold mattresses in stores under the Beautyrest brand since 1925 and began selling mattresses online in 2019. In addition to the Beautyrest Black, Simmons sells the Beautyrest Hybrid Mattress.

The Beautyrest Black Mattress is a hybrid mattress that contains pocketed coils and four foam comfort layers. This mattress has an above-average 13-inch profile and rates 7.5 out of 10, or firm, on the firmness scale.

Customers can purchase the Beautyrest Black Mattress in its Original state, or opt to upgrade the mattress in one of two ways. The Cooling Upgrade adds a layer of carbon fiber-infused memory foam that makes the mattress more temperature neutral. The Cooling + Comfort Upgrade adds the carbon fiber infusion plus another layer of foam that provides increased pressure relief.

The Beautyrest Black is covered with a fabric using a cooling technology Simmons refers to as the BlackICE 4.0 System with breathable SilkAir fiber. The company does not publish the exact materials contained in the mattress’s cover, however.

Our testers found this material to have a polyester-blend like consistency, noting that it was significantly cool-to-the-touch.

Our testing team determined the Beautyrest Black Original Mattress rates 7.5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, which is inconsistent with the “medium” rating the company gives it on their website. We also found the Beautyrest Black Mattress with Cooling + Comfort Upgrade is a bit softer, rating 6 out of 10 or medium-soft on the firmness scale. The Beautyrest Black Mattress with Cooling Upgrade feels identical to the Beautyrest Black Original Mattress in terms of firmness.

While the Beautyrest Black Mattresses have 3.5 inches of foam layers it does not conform very closely to the body, and instead has a responsive feel. The foam layers provide a somewhat plush feel, but ultimately the mattress is characterized by the flat, supportive feel resulting from the thick pocketed coil layer.

Some hybrid mattresses provide a sinking feeling, feeling more like foam than innerspring mattresses. The Beautyrest Black Mattress is not one of them. Sleepers who want more conforming and the sensation of sleeping “in” rather than “on” the mattress will not prefer the Beautyrest Black.

The Beautyrest Black mattress is recommended for…
Average- and heavyweight back sleepers. The Beautyrest Black provides adequate lumbar support and conforming pressure relief to sleepers in this group.
Heavyweight side sleepers. Our heavyweight side sleep testers experienced support and spinal alignment on the Beautyrest Black Mattress.
Sleepers who prefer to sleep “on” the mattress. Despite its foam comfort layers, the Beautyrest Black Mattress is quite firm provides a flat, supportive surface with minimal sink.

The bed is not recommended for…
Budget-conscious shoppers. The Beautyrest Black Mattress is a luxury hybrid mattress, so its price-point is on the higher end.
Lightweight side sleepers. Lightweight sleepers who prefer sleeping on their sides might find the Beautyrest Black Mattress feels too firm unless they pay extra for the comfort upgrade.
