Alternate Mattress Names: A Comprehensive Guide to Beautyrest and Comforpedic

If you’re a savvy comparison shopper, you’ve probably noticed that the same mattress can have alternative names, depending on the region and store that you’re in.  If you’ve tried shopping on the internet, you’ve seen a whole different set of names there, too.

Many customers have asked me why this is done, and to be perfectly honest, like you, I wish that it was cut and dry, that everyone had the same name.  It would be so much easier for retailers to compete and show that they really had the best price!  Unfortunately, this is not the case, and there will always be different names for the same mattress.  It’s partly to protect the small Mom & Pop local dealers from having to go up against the big retailers and internet resellers, it’s partly to uphold the price integrity of the brand.  Either way, I’m about to blow up everyone’s spot.

Comforpedic Mattress Names

We have compiled a pretty good list of different names for our Simmons beds.  Comforpedic mattresses only go by two names: an in-store name, and an online name.  They are, specification-wise, the SAME mattress.  The only difference is the name on the tag.


Beautyrest Mattress Names

Beautyrest Recharge mattresses have many more name variations than Comforpedics.  The chart below contains all of the different names of Beautyrest mattresses that we have compiled.  It is not, however, an exhaustive list.

The easiest way to see if one mattress is the same as another is to compare the specifications.  Many sites (including this one) have the individual layers of the bed listed, in as much detail as possible.  Mattresses that are the same will have the exact same layers, in the same order, in the same amounts.

Don’t be discouraged by the fact that there are many different names for the same product out there.  Once you decipher the different names, you can often use this to your advantage, and get the best deal possible.

Comforpedic Models Explained

The new Comforpedic line-up has been out for a few months now, and we’ve heard nothing but good reviews from customers.  In case you still haven’t purchased yours, here are some details on each bed, so you can choose which is right for you!  We’ll start with the most basic, and move on from there:

Comforpedic Balanced Days

  1. Comforpedic Advanced Rest – This is the firmest of all of the new Comforpedic beds.  It is 9.5” in height, and can take regular sheets.  This bed starts with 1” of AirCool Memory Foam with TruTemp gel.  This layer is basically open cell memory foam, with gel globules suspended throughout the foam.  The gel absorbs excess heat, and then releases it when the sleeper moves.  This new technology allows 2.8 times quicker heat dissipation than other brands.  The AirCool memory foam cradles the body and relieves pressure to give the sleeper natural spinal alignment.  This is followed by firm comfort foam, which is what gives this bed it’s firmness, and then another 2” of AirCool memory foam.  The core of this bed, like all Comforpedic mattresses, is made of 2” Independent Support Technology, which is a foam layer that has sculpted cushions to react individually to the support and pressure relief needs of your body.  This layer also promotes air flow throughout the mattress.  The core also contains a 3.5” AirCool Transflexion Core, which provides ventilated support for both the comfort foams, and the sleeper.  The edge support on the Advanced Rest is ventilated on all sides for improved air flow.  The Advanced Rest is best for back and stomach sleepers, side sleepers might want a softer, more conforming feel.Comforpedic Mattresses
  2. Comforpedic Renewed Energy – This plush firm feeling memory foam bed is 11.5” thick, and ideal for all types of sleepers.  It has the same 1” AirCool Memory Foam with TruTemp Gel as the Advanced Rest, but underneath that layer it has an additional 1.5” of 1.65lb AirCool Memory Foam.  This is what gives this mattress that softer feel.  The rest of the layers are identical until you reach the Transflexion Core, which on the Renewed Energy is 5” thick instead of 3.5”.
  3. Comforpedic Balanced Days – This plush mattress is the most popular of all the Comforpedic models, and is 12.5” thick.  Again, the layers are very similar between the Balanced Days and the Renewed Energy, the only difference being that second layer of comfort foams.  Instead of the 1.5” of 1.65lb AirCool memory foam, there is 1.5” of 4.5lb Advanced AirCool Memory Foam, which gives a softer, more conforming feel.  The Balanced Days is perfect for all types of sleepers, and is very popular for use on adjustable beds.Comforpedic Restored Spirits
  4. Comforpedic Restored Spirits – This mattress is the top of this new Comforpedic line-up, and has an ultra-plush feel.  This mattress is suitable for side and back sleepers, but may be too soft for stomach sleepers.  The Restored Spirits is 13” thick, and has higher density memory foam than all other Comforpedics.  The top layer is the same for all models, but then this mattress has 1.5” of 5.5lb Advanced AirCool Memory Foam, followed by 2.5” of the same 5.5lb foam.  This is what provides that super soft feel while maintaining support. The AirCool Transflexion Core is 6” on this mattress, providing support and pressure relief.

All of these Comforpedic mattresses are approved for use on adjustable bases, and all have a twenty-five year warranty.  Find out which one is best for you, and sleep well tonight!

How Comforpedic Mattresses Help with Motion Separation

top complaints of couples is motion disturbance on mattress while sleepingOne of the top complaints of couples is motion disturbance.  There’s nothing worse than being woken up because your partner is changing position, or tossing and turning.  There is no reason why both people need to be awake all night!

comforpedic mattress DrsnoozeUp until about ten years ago, there were only two options to solve this problem: separate beds, or a mattress with individually wrapped coils.  Few people want to sleep in separate beds, so that leaves mattresses with increased motion separating coil systems.  We’ve all seen the bowling ball commercial by Beautyrest ( click here to view the Video) , and these beds were truly revolutionary.  They worked much better than regular mattresses, but the results were far from perfect: padding and quilting still moved and pulled from side to side, and foundations were known to move and flex when someone was tossing and turning.

Thankfully, now there is an even better option that really dampens motion: memory foam beds.  That major brand’s commercial with the wine glass and the jumping person is now famous, and that level of motion separation really exists with these beds.  Here’s why:

  1. Memory foam reacts only to what is touching it, meaning that each person is only affecting the memory foam that is directly under them.  Since there are no coils or quick reaction foams connecting one side of the bed to the other, motion is not transferred from person to person.
  2. The act of tossing and turning is reduced by up to 80%.  People move around on beds to find a more comfortable position, or to even out pressure points.  Since memory foam eliminates those pressure points and cradles the body evenly, almost any position is comfortable, and the urge to move because of excess pressure isn’t felt.Memory Foam Offer from DrSnooze
  3. The final reason why people move, especially on memory foam beds, is because they are hot.  While this may continue on some brands, others have addressed this issue and have made their mattresses cooler.  One of these brands is Comforpedic, who made their mattresses dissipate heat 2.8 times faster than the competition by inventing the AirCool Sleep system, which is a combination of open cell foams, gel infused foams, and ventilated edge support and side material.

With Comforpedic, you truly get the best of all worlds: undisturbed sleep, and a cool and comfortable environment.  Partners don’t feel the need to move around as much as on a traditional mattress, and when they do have to move, they don’t transfer the motion to the other side of the bed and disturb their partner.  For those people who are very sensitive to movement, are very light sleepers, or just want to get a better night’s sleep, a Comforpedic may just fit their bill.

Comforpedic 365 Day Comfort Exchange

A common problem for people when shelling out money for a new mattress is: what if they don’t like it in a few months?  Most stores have exchange policies, but they usually involve fees, and are only for a limited time, like sixty days.  Enter in the new Comforpedic line-up. Simmons is so sure that you’re going to love their mattress, that they have given a 365 day comfort guarantee.  In case you were asleep, that’s a whole year to decide if the bed is for you!  It takes a lot of confidence in their product to offer this type of guarantee, and their Comforpedic beds are backing up their claim of better, cooler, more supported sleep!

Comforpedic MattressComforpedic asks that you sleep on the bed for sixty days, because your body will need to get used to the new support system, and new feel.  But if it’s not for you, come back in and reselect another Simmons mattress, from any of their line-ups, and change it out.  How easy is that?  No other questions asked, no run-around, just come in and pick another one out, and that’s it!

This means that if you buy a Comforpedic, which is all foam, you can switch it out for an innerspring Beautyrest, or BeautySleep.  You can even change it out for another model in the Comforpedic collection, or go to the TruEnergy line-up.  The only restriction is that you have to exchange it for another Simmons bed.  Think of all the possibilities!

ComforpedicWe always try to match people to the correct bed the first time, but you never really know until you’ve been sleeping on it for a while.  This new comfort exchange guarantee by Comforpedic will make purchasing a mattress from them that much easier, because you have recourse if it’s not for you.

And who couldn’t use 365 days of try-out time?  I wish that all manufacturers offered this….
