I'm new here and this should probably be posted in the General Questions and not in Luma Sleep, however I just could not find the new topic button without having to click "Ask An Expert."

Anyway, my wife and I live in the Bay Area and we went to five different mattress stores yesterday to find the perfect king size mattress for us. We absolutely fell in love with the Tolliver Firm Beautyrest (Black Hybrid Plus) . Even though the sales rep was insistent that we buy that day, I NEVER make purchases that big on the same day I decide what I like.

After doing some research here, I realized unfortunately everyone says to stay away from Beautyrest since the material may not be the highest quality. I want to know, what should I do from here? Can anyone recommend a similar alternative to the Tolliver that will have the same feel but better quality? I'm 6' 2" 220lbs and my wife is 5' 8' 150lbs. Also, price is not at all a concern. I'm willing to spend whatever is necessary to get a quality mattress.

Thank you for the help!

Hi TheRob,

Thank you for visiting The Mattress Underground! To address your primary concern, Beautyrest is the leading brand for the Simmons Bedding Company. Simmons is one of the largest mattress manufacturing companies in the world, and has been in business since 1900. It has been merged with Serta Corporation. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simmons_Bedding_Company. As a mass producer of mattresses, there will be normal variation in their products, but it is not realistic to believe that Beautyrest mattresses do not have high quality materials. Beautyrest Black is Simmons' premier bedding line. By design, it will have the highest quality materials of all Simmons' products. The Tolliver model of hybrids is Beautyrest's top-of-the-line firm model. Provided your retailer is giving you a 100-night in-home trial with free returns with no strings attached, there is little risk in completing your purchase, other than the sales price as you are in between sales promotions of Memorial Day and the 4th of July. We would suggest that you have the retailer provide you a price guarantee that runs until mid-July in the event the model you purchase goes on sale within a reasonable time frame after your purchase.

Finding a comparable product that has the same feel but better quality is a task that only you can undertake, as the feel of the mattress you are seeking is very much a personal equation. There are comparable quality mattresses from smaller manufacturers that will likely be a better price value, and there are comparable quality mattresses from boutique luxury brands that will be equal or greater in price. Unless you have not satisfied your shopping needs to the level that you will not have buyer's remorse, we would recommend you focus on your post-purchase options.

We realize that while Phoenix and some visitors of this site are not fans of the major national brands, you are shopping in the ultra-luxury category of mattress products. Quality is a given when it comes to this category of products. The concerns expressed to you by others may be more likely associated with Beautyrest products that are designed and priced in a different category.

Others may likely chime in and have contrary views, but we felt it important to provide you a view you may not likely find so you can have a balanced perspective as your seek input.

Hope it helps!
