Please note that we received the hybrid model, which we will be reviewing in this article.
Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress Overview
- Good Lumbar Support: The hybrid model of the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress comes with pocketed coils that provide targeted support in the back region. This is beneficial for those who suffer from back pain as it will give them healthy spinal alignment, allowing them to sleep without back aches or potential sores in the morning.
- Not for Side Sleepers: People who strictly sleep on their sides tend to prefer mattresses that offer pressure relief in the hip and shoulder region. The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress falls short in providing that which will most likely cause spinal misalignment, leading to a painful and discomforting sleep experience.
- Lacks Durability: While the Beautyrest PressureSmart Firm offers comfort and support, some concerns have been raised about its long-term durability. Specifically, the materials and construction might not provide the most robust foundation, potentially leading to edge support issues and sagging over time.
- Not for Couples: The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress struggles when it comes to isolating motion. This is not so efficient for couples or partners who share a bed as the bed will transfer any motion caused by you or your partner, resulting in frequent sleep disruptions.
Who we Recommend the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress for
- Stomach Sleepers: A mattress that is firm and supportive enough is a good mattress for stomach sleepers. The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm hybrid model is firm enough and will suffice for the majority of stomach sleepers, as it will help elevate their hips and properly align their spine, allowing them to get comfortable sleep. We do, however, recommend the Layla Hybrid or the Plank Firm Luxe in the firm models as they will both provide you with extra support and more pressure relief.
Unboxing the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress shipped to us compressed in a box. We unpacked the bed and unrolled it onto our sleeping surface, allowing the mattress to fully decompress. Carrying around and placing the mattress was a challenge, so we recommend you get some external help.
After unrolling the mattress, we waited for hours for it to fully expand to its expected size. The edges of the mattress are not reinforced or supportive, which makes it take quite some time to completely expand to its intended shape.
While there was a noticeable initial odor upon unpacking the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm, it completely dissipated within 6 days, which is still within the acceptable range for new mattress off-gassing.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress
Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress Firmness
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm is a firm hybrid mattress with a score of 7/10 on the firmness scale. It provides a solid and supportive surface for sleepers, making it resistant to pressure. The firmness of a mattress is subjective, which means it may feel different depending on the sleeper’s body weight.
This bed will mainly suit stomach sleepers. We do suggest looking into the Layla Hybrid mattress or the Emma Shift for their great versatility as they come with a dual firmness option making it easy for you to pick the side you desire.
Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress Feel
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress includes an InifniCool PLus surface with a gel memory foam right below. These two work together to keep the surface of the mattress cool, and to provide you with a plush and body-cushioning pillow top.
We felt excessive sinkage for a considerably firm mattress. This excessive level of sinkage will result in increased pressure points for a lot of sleepers, especially heavier individuals.
Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress Comfort
While the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress has top layers designed for enhanced cushioning and contouring, some sleepers might find the sleeping surface uneven or less than comfortable.
We tested the mattress with a group of our reviewers, who have different sleeping styles and weight ranges. Their overall feedback categorized the mattress as "average.”
The mattress features elements intended to offer lumbar support, but some users may not experience the desired level of back support. The combination of a firm profile and localized sinkage in the back area could potentially create pressure points for some sleepers, leading to discomfort or pain.
Here’s a table summarizing these results:
|Lightweight (Under 150 lb)
|Average (150 – 250 lb)
|Above Average (Over 250 lb)
We will later discuss the pressure relief performance of the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm in our review.
Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
This mattress features some of Beautyrest’s special technologies like the InfiniCool Plus and the CarboBoost technologies. Its design aims to promote a cooler sleep surface for a more comfortable sleep experience. It also incorporates 1000 Series Pocketed Coil which offers tailored support and enhances spinal alignment.
We do believe that other hybrid mattresses will give you a luxurious sleep experience. The Plank Firm Luxe mattress and the Layla Hybrid mattress both fall in the firm firmness profile. They will ensure better sleep with their premium materials and higher-quality designs. You can also go for more eco-friendly options like the Plank Firm Natural mattress.
- InfiniCool™ Plus Surface: This is the uppermost layer of the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress. It has InfiniCool Plush integrated into it, which is Beautyrest’s cooling technology that acts to dissipate heat and regulate temperature, providing you with a cool sleep surface.
- Plush Comfort Foam: This comfort foam gives the top of the mattress a plush feel which gives sleepers initial comfort and contours to their body shape. This allows for great body cushioning, leaving sleepers feeling cozy and at peace.
- CarbonBoost™ Foam: This is a layer of carbon-infused foam, which enhances its support and responsiveness. This makes the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm more resilient and durable.
- GelTouch Foam: The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm incorporates this gel-infused foam, which is known for its ability to regulate temperature and prevent heat retention, providing sleepers with a comfortable and cooler sleep environment.
- Gel Memory Lumbar Support: This layer is designed to provide sleepers with targeted support in the lumbar area of the body. Gel memory foam is renowned for its great ability to cradle the body and conform to its shape, which offers personalized support to each sleeper in the lower back region. This helps maintain spinal alignment, giving you a comfortable sleep experience.
- 1000 Series Pocketed Coil Technology: This technology serves to support and secure the core of the mattress, which creates zoned support in the back area. The pocketed coils move independently, for enhanced support and proper spinal alignment.
Performance of Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm Mattress
The cooling performance is crucial in a mattress, especially for people who tend to sleep hot or live in warmer climates. Overheating while sleeping will cause you great discomfort and interrupted sleep patterns.
To perform our standard cooling test, we lie down on the mattress for 20 minutes, allowing the bed to absorb body heat, and then measure the temperature of the mattress.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress did not effectively cool the surface as we had expected. This may be because of the memory foam layers included in its structure as well as the quilted pillow top cover which all retained heat, resulting in excessive body heat.
The GLACIOTEX™️ Cooling Cover is a standout feature of the Plank Firm Mattress, designed specifically to enhance your sleeping experience. This advanced cover efficiently dissipates heat, ensuring that the mattress surface stays cool and dry, providing a comfortable and refreshing night's sleep.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm scored a 3/5 on our cooling test.
The responsiveness of a mattress refers to how quickly it can adapt to your body when it’s changing positions. This is a great feature that most combination sleepers seek in a bed.
For our responsiveness test, we use a 20-pound ball. Once fully rested, we measure how long the mattress takes to recover and retain its original shape.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress took approximately 1.6 seconds to recover which is longer than the average response time of 0.4 seconds. The weak support shown by this mattress can be an explanation for the slow recovery time for this bed.
This makes the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress not the best choice for people who switch through positions during the night, or people with limited mobility. The Plank Firm Luxe mattress will give you much better performance and results.
We rate the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress a 3.5/5 on the responsiveness test.
For the first motion isolation test, we placed a glass of water on one side of the mattress and dropped a 20-pound ball on the other. The water moved and sloshed around, which meant the mattress did not absorb enough motion.
In the second test, one person lay on the mattress while another rolled around on the other side of the bed. The person lying at rest reported that they felt a slight amount of movement.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm showed its inability to isolate motion, despite its incorporation of multiple memory layers. This will be a great issue for couples or partners who share a bed as they will be able to feel each other’s movements at night, making them wake up and resulting in sleep disturbances.
We suggest you take a look at the Plank Firm Luxe mattress if you’re looking for a bed with minimal motion transfer, thanks to its Plank Firm mattress. Couples will be able to enjoy their sleep without being bothered by each other’s movements.
We give the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress a 3/5 for motion isolation performance.
People who sit or sleep on the sides of the bed prefer a mattress with solid edge support. Good edge support can maximize the usable surface area of your mattress as well as prevent any roll-off sensation when getting near the perimeter of the bed.
We test out edge support performance by applying pressure to the edges of the mattress and observing to see its level of compression. We noticed that it compressed, and the edges sprung back to shape slowly.
We also sat on the edges of the bed and felt major weight sinkage. This is not the best option for heavier sleepers who prefer to sleep or sit on the edge of the bed. The weak edge support on this mattress will significantly affect the durability and longevity of this bed, causing it to sag quickly over time and be more exposed to tear and wear.
Mattresses like the Nolah Evolution 15” are well constructed and will guarantee excellent edge support, providing you with great durability and security.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress scored a 3.5/5 regarding edge support.
A quiet mattress helps give you a peaceful sleep environment, allowing sleepers to enjoy uninterrupted rest. Excessive noise from a mattress, such as creaking or squeaking, can disturb sleepers by waking people up during the night.
We conducted our standard noise test by dropping a 20-pound ball onto the mattress. With the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm bed, we used highly sensitive microphones to listen for any noises produced, but none were found.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm bed did not produce notable noises. This will be good enough for most sleepers, especially couples.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress scored a 4.5/5 on our noise test.
A mattress with good sex performance should ideally work in terms of edge support, noise, responsiveness, and bounce.
The Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress isn’t the best mattress for sex. has weak edge support around its perimeter, which will make it a struggle for couples to use the entire surface area of the bed. However, It does not produce excessive noise or squeaks.
Regarding responsiveness, the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress does not ease the change of positions, causing couples to get a “stuck” feeling or feel restricted in their movements. As for bounce, the mattress might give average bounce levels, which will be enough for some people.
We rate the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress a 3/5 in terms of sex performance.
Pressure relief is important when it comes to mattresses, as it helps give you a pain-free and comfortable sleep experience.
Our pressure relief test is conducted by using a pressure mapping system to measure the pressure levels throughout the body while lying on the bed.
The pressure map below demonstrates the results we collected.
For heavy and average-weight side sleepers, the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress will offer adequate comfort and support.
Side sleepers, regardless of their body weight, will find the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress lacking in terms of pressure relief in the hip and shoulder areas. It’ll cause discomfort, and excessive sinkage, and will not be able to maintain proper spinal alignment. This could result in discomfort, increased pressure points, and disrupted sleep.
Mattresses like the Plank Firm Luxe mattress will relieve pain and pressure in need areas and will ensure a comfortable sleep experience.
In terms of pressure relief performance, the Beautyrest Pressure Smart Firm mattress scores a 3/5.
