Pain Reduction

Simmons mattress suffers from severe sagging problems that may undermine the comfort and support of it. Therefore, a significant number of customers report that Simmons mattress would cause their back pain because of the deterioration, sagging, and deformation.

Motion Isolation

Beautyrest models are effective in isolating movement made by one person so that the partner is not much disturbed when lying on the bed. The mattresses tend to perform above average in couple friendliness.

Sleeping Hot & Initial Odor

A few sleepers report sleeping hot problem. Models that have significant memory foam have the most potential to retain heat to an uncomfortable extent. Off-gassing problem is not a primary issue for Simmons. The unpleasant odor is given off when it is new because of the packaging or manufacturing process.

Couple Suitability

Generally, innerspring beds tend to have above average ratings because of the bounce action they provide. The models of Beautyrest, tend to limit bounce with the memory foam content and its motion-isolating pocket coil design.
