For decades, when people thought about mattresses, they were probably picturing a Simmons Beautyrest. Simmons is an established mattress brand that’s been a pioneer in the industry.
In 1925, they were the first company to introduce a mass-produced bed with pocketed coils (the Beautyrest), and in 1958, they launched queen and king mattress sizes.
Since then, Simmons Beautyrest mattresses have remained popular. In this review, we’re taking a closer look at the Beautyrest mattresses available for purchase online and the company behind them.

Original Black Mattress
- Price: $$$
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 15 inches
The Original Beautyrest Black was designed for cooler, more comfortable sleep.
It features a cool-to-the-touch fabric cover, plush pillowtop, and a hybrid design that mixes its proprietary pocketed coil system with five layers of memory foam and gel foam. The foam layers are designed to provide breathability, airflow, and pressure relief.
Satisfied reviewers say it really does sleep cool and provides a good night’s rest. However, some reviewers note problems with sagging and durability after several months.
Black Hybrid Mattress
- Price: $$$
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 13.5 inches
The Beautyrest Black Hybrid shares the same cool-to-the-touch fabric cover and coil support system as the Original Beautyrest Black, but doesn’t come with a pillow top. It’s rated medium-firm, and has just 3 inches of foam for those who like a firmer feel.
The high-quality memory foam is designed to deliver pressure point relief, and the steel coils offer support and durability.
Currently, there are no reviews for this mattress on Beautyrest’s site.
Harmony Lux Carbon Mattress
- Price: $$
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 13.75 inches
The Harmony Lux Carbon mattress is available in three firmness options at no additional charge, plus there’s an optional pillow top upgrade.
This model features a different support system than the Original and Hybrid. Additionally, the 4.25 inches of gel and comfort foams are designed for pressure relief and comfort.
This is another cooling mattress, but with a sustainable twist — it’s covered with a durable, luxurious fabric made with plastics recovered from the ocean, in partnership with the Seaqual Initiative.
Most reviewers say it’s soft and comfy, and that it’s held up well.
Harmony Lux Diamond Mattress
- Price: $$
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 14.75 inches
The Harmony Lux Diamond is available in two firmness levels at no extra cost, plus you can choose an optional pillow top upgrade.
It shares the same sustainable fabric cover as the Harmony Lux Carbon but includes additional layers of proprietary memory and comfort foams.
Most reviewers are satisfied, saying the mattress is comfortable and offers good pressure relief.
- Price: $
- Type: Hybrid
- Height: 13 inches
The Harmony is Beautyrest’s budget option, coming in under $1,000 for a queen. It’s available in an extra firm or plush firmness level, and you can also choose to add two optional cooling upgrades.
Despite its reasonable price point, it features a proprietary pocketed coil system and the same sustainable fabric as the Harmony Lux mattresses. It also includes 3 inches of charcoal-infused memory and comfort foams.
There aren’t many reviews on Beautyrest’s site for this mattress, but most of what’s there is positive.
While all Beautyrest mattresses are sold in stores, only the five we’ve reviewed here can currently be purchased online directly from Beautyrest. In-store options include the Silver and Platinum lines. The company has a search feature on its website to help you locate a store in your ZIP code.
Buying online means you can’t test out a mattress before you pay for it, which is why Beautyrest offers its 100-night, in-home trial. All mattresses purchased online directly from Beautyrest are shipped with the company’s complimentary white glove delivery and setup.
Prices for Beautyrest mattresses on its website start around $800 for its budget mattress in the smallest size up to almost $3,500 for a California King in its most luxurious option.
Keep in mind that while firmness choices don’t add to the price tag, cooling and comfort upgrades can be a significant upcharge — up to $900 on top of the base mattress price. The company does offer seasonal sales.
All of the Beautyrest mattresses available for purchase on the company’s website are hybrid mattresses, offering some version of a supportive coil system and layers of memory foam.
Hybrid mattresses are generally a good choice for those who want the comfort of foam with the support and responsiveness of coils.
Beautyrest doesn’t make recommendations about the suitability of its mattresses for specific sleep positions. The combination of supportive coils and layers of memory foam in its mattresses should offer spinal alignment and pressure point relief no matter how you prefer to sleep.
Some mattresses also offer a choice of firmness levels, which can help you customize your purchase. If you sleep on your side, you might do best with something softer. Back and stomach sleepers may prefer a firmer sleep surface.
The mattresses on the Beautyrest website are also available with options and upgrades designed to address specific sleep preferences and issues.
You can opt for upgraded cooling features if you sleep hot, a pillow top if you prefer a particularly indulgent sleep surface, and additional comfort layers for breathability and support.
Simmons Beautyrest is one of the most well known mattress brands in the United States — the company has been business since approximately 1870.
They’re accredited with the Better Business Bureau, where they have an A+ rating.
Reviews for Beautyrest mattresses on its website are generally positive, but some people report dissatisfaction with mattress performance, comfort, and longevity.
However, the company does respond directly to all negative reviews. They request that unhappy customers contact Beautyrest directly for a resolution.
Reviews on third-party sites like Trustpilot and Consumer Affairs are mixed, with some customers citing durability issues. Beautyrest does offer a warranty that covers body impressions.
Beautyrest’s white glove delivery means they manage all of the details for mattress delivery and set up, plus removal of your old mattress.
The company works with XPO Logistics, and it takes between 4 and 6 weeks for XPO to contact buyers to schedule delivery.
A customer or adult must be present for the delivery. Note that they don’t ship to Hawaii or Alaska, and they also don’t ship internationally.
Mattresses bought directly from Beautyrest through its website can be returned within 100 days for a full refund. The company will work with you to have the mattress picked up and removed — all you have to do is contact them via email to begin the process.
Exchanges are also an option, but completing an exchange will void the sleep trial for the new mattress.
Beautyrest mattresses purchased through another retailer are subject to that company’s return policy.
Beautyrest is a ubiquitous brand in the mattress world. Until 2019, Beautyrest mattresses were only sold in stores, but a limited selection is now available for purchase online.
The company has been in business for more than 100 years, and reviews of its mattresses are generally positive. However, some people note that the mattresses don’t last as long as they expected.
Beautyrest offers a 100-night sleep trial so you can test out a mattress in the comfort of your home before committing to it.
