The Simmons Beautyrest Hybrid is a quality and comfortable mattress with moderate firmness. On our firmness scale of 1-10, the Beautyrest Hybrid is about a 5. This makes it a versatile bed that will be well suited to a wide variety of sleepers and sleep styles.
This is a hybrid mattress, which means it combines metal coils with layers of foam. The coils provide the underlying support layer, while three unique layers of foam improve comfort and responsiveness. Keep in mind that this design is one-sided, so it cannot be flipped over like traditional mattresses. To extend its lifespan, you can rotate the mattress every six months – but it should not be flipped.
The Beautyrest Hybrid uses a thick layer of pocketed coils as its main support layer. Pocketed coils are metal springs that are individually wrapped in fabric. Because they are separated, they are able to move independently from one another, providing a more responsive feel and more customized support. The coil support layer is approximately 9.5 inches thick. A rigid foam perimeter surrounds the coil layer, helping to improve edge support and maintain the overall shape of the bed. In general, hybrids tend to provide better edge support than all-foam mattresses, and the Beautyrest Hybrid is no different.
A three-part comfort system is made up of two layers of gel-infused memory foam, and one layer of standard polyfoam comfort foam. Simmons uses a cooling gel in their memory foam layers to help improve the bed’s ability to retain a cool and comfortable temperature. This is an important feature, as traditional memory foam tends to sleep hot.
Lastly, a quilted fabric cover tops the mattress, protecting it from damage. The cover features a special cooling material to help maintain a comfortable sleeping temperature. This cover is integrated into the mattress, so it is not removable or washable. For anyone looking for extra protection, adding a mattress protector cover is a good idea.

Most side sleepers will find the Beautyrest Hybrid to be a very comfortable and supportive mattress. The combination of foam layers and pocketed coils mean that there is enough give to allow your shoulders and hips to sink into the mattress, but enough support to keep your spine aligned. Typically, side sleepers will find that this mattress provides good pressure relief, contouring, and support, resulting in a comfortable sleep experience overall.
Because of its medium firmness rating, the Beautyrest Hybrid will be best suited to side sleepers under 230 pounds. For those over 230 pounds, the mattress still scores well, but some individuals may be better off on a firmer bed.
The majority of back sleepers will prefer a medium or medium firm feel. This mattress falls at about a 5 out of 10 on the firmness scale, which may or may not be firm enough for back sleepers. The support of this mattress should be sufficient for most, so much of this guidance comes down to personal preference on how firm you like your bed to feel.
Back sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds will likely feel that this mattress is plenty firm. Those who weigh between 130 and 230 pounds will find that the firmness is adequate to provide support, but some will prefer a firmer feel. For back sleepers of over 230 pounds, this mattress may not feel firm enough, and it may struggle to provide the support needed for proper spinal alignment.
Stomach sleepers will typically prefer firmer beds. Particularly if you carry more weight around your midsection, you may find that medium firmness beds allow for excessive sinkage around the hip area. Inadequate support in the hips can lead to improper spinal alignment, which may contribute to back pain and other issues.
Since this is a medium mattress in terms of firmness, it may have too much give for many stomach sleepers. Stomach sleepers who weigh less than 130 pounds should fare well on the Beautyrest Hybrid, but stomach sleepers who weigh more than that may wish to seek out a firmer mattress.
