The Simmons Beautyrest Exceptionale mattress is one of the higher-end mattresses in the Beautyrest line. It comes with a high coil density and various arrangements of visco memory foam and latex foam. Consumers indicate that it is very comfortable but there are concerns regarding its weight as well as impressions that form in the mattress over time. [REF Simmons Mattress Reviews]
The Simmons Beautyrest Exceptionale is one of several different Beautyrest mattresses. The Beautyrest line of mattresses includes the following:
The Exceptionale comes with two stories of pocketed coils. Pocketed coils are springs individually wrapped with fabric. The lower level of pocketed coil springs are firm and provide support while the upper level of spring are less firm (described by Simmons as “plush”) and these provide more in the way of comfort.
All-in-all the Beautyrest Exceptionale has a grand total of 1960 pocketed coil springs (980 coils per story). It should be noted that coil density for mattresses is usually quoted for a Queen size mattress. Exceptionale coil density for other sizes is shown below:
Full – 1650 coils
King – 2170 coils
Cal King – 2516 coils
Comfort/support options include firm, plush or pillow-top. Depending on the options one chooses the Exceptionale has various configurations of visco memory foam and latex foam, as well as stretch knit fabrics blended with natural yarns. The entire edge of the Beautyrest Excpetionale mattress is also encased in 3 inches of high density foam that provides strong edge support (reduces roll-off and provides strong edge for sitting).
This is a fairly robust mattress and it can support up to 2000lbs of pressure. It also has a single sleep surface and this means that flipping the mattress is not required (which is likely a good thing as the mattress, according to consumers, is quite heavy). The Beautyrest Exceptional carries a 10 year warranty.
Simmons rate the Exceptional as a level 3 in terms of motion separation. The Motion Separation Index (as described by Simmons) indicates how much your partner will feel you moving on the other side of the bed. The lower the index the more motion your partner feels. The MSI ratings for several of the Beautyrests are as follows:
Beautyrest Classic 1
Beautyrest World Class 2
Beautyrest Exceptionale 3
Beautyrest NxG Series 4
The Exceptionale is available from most outlets in a range of sizes:
Twin - 39" x 75"
Full - 54" x 75"
Queen - 60" x 80"
King - 76" x 80"
Cal King - 84" x 72"
The mattress can usually be purchased with or without a foundation. The foundation (box spring) is available in both standard (9 inches in height) and low-profile (5.5 inches in height).
