The Simmons Beautyrest Classic series is part of the Beautyrest line of mattresses. The Beautyrest Classic is the most affordable of the Beautyrests (which include the Classic, the World Class, the Exceptionale, and the fairly new NxG series). There is also the Beautyrest Black luxury collection but this group of mattresses is often considered separately from the other Beautyrests. [REF Simmons Mattress Reviews 2010]
The Classic also has the lowest Motion Separation Index of the Beautyrest mattresses. The Motion Separation Index (likely a Simmon’s concept) indicates how much your partner will feel you moving on the other half of the bed. The lower the index the more motion your partner feels. The MSI ratings for the Beautyrests are as follows:
Beautyrest Classic 1
Beautyrest World Class 2
Beautyrest Exceptionale 3
Beautyrest NxG Series 4
The Classic mattress (queen) has 800 pocketed coil springs (each spring is individually wrapped in fabric) and provides edge support by using thicker wire in the springs near the edge of the mattress (2 rows of 13.25-gauge coils – the other main springs are 15.5 gauge). In general the more coils in the mattress the more support you will get – the other Beautyrest mattresses (queen) have 980 or 1960 pocketed coils. The Classic also uses a combination of “premium foams” (Simmons don’t elaborate on the premium foam details) and visco memory foam, and there is also a fire-retardant fiber.
There are firm, plush or pillowtop options with the Simmons Beautyrest Classic mattress. Firm, as the name states, has a more pressure resistant sleep surface, plush provides a “cushier” sleep surface via the use of the premium and memory foams, and pillowtop uses layers of foam in the top upholstery creating an especially soft sleeping surface. The Beautyrest Classic mattress also has a single sleeping surface and does not require flipping.
Ratings are hard to come by on this mattress series but Buzzillions has 4 customer reviews that provide an average 4 stars out of 5 for the Beautyrest Classic Baran. Macy’s has 4 reviews of the Simmons Beautyrest Classic Hawthorne Plush and the consumers rate this mattress an average 5 stars out of 5.
