Shopping for a luxury hybrid mattress? We’ll compare the best Beautyrest and Saatva mattresses side-by-side so you can choose the right new mattress for you.
Simmons Beautyrest vs Saatva—a battle between tradition and a new way of mattress shopping. Simmons Beautyrest has been a trusted mattress company for nearly 100 years. Saatva is a newer direct-to-consumer mattress brand that cuts out showroom costs so they can bring high-quality at competitive prices.
In this article, we’re going to compare the leading Beautyrest and Saatva mattresses. You’ll learn what’s similar, what’s different, and which luxury hybrid mattress best fits your needs and preferences.
|Best For||In-person shoppers, every sleeping position, luxury shoppers, every body size||Online shoppers, every body size, eco-conscious consumers, every sleeping position|
|Special Features||ContourFit Design, BlackICE Hybrid Technology, RightTemp Memory Foam, AirCool Memory Foam||Coil-on-coil technology, organic and natural materials, zoned Talalay latex, hand-tufted design|
The Beautyrest Black Hybrid is made from generous comfort layers and a robust pocketed coil system. It comes in three models. The Original has a medium feel that does an excellent job at balancing pressure relief and spinal alignment. The Comfort Upgrade is softer, with a medium-soft feel. Both of these mattresses measure 13” deep. The Comfort + Pressure Relief Upgrade is a soft mattress with a body-hugging feel. It’s even thicker, measuring 15” deep.
The Saatva Classic mattress is a hybrid bed with minimal foam layers and a unique coil-on-coil construction. It comes in plush soft, luxury firm, and firm. The top layer is a plush Euro pillow top with 3” of pressure-relieving foam sewn into an organic cotton cover. There’s a layer of memory foam along the lumbar region for added support and cushion. A layer of comfort coils brings responsive pressure relief, while the sturdier second coil layer adds a springy, supportive feel.
Because the Beautyrest Hybrid has thicker foam layers, it’s better at minimizing motion transfer. It also delivers greater pressure relief, excellent for side sleepers. Saatva’s coil-on-coil design provides superior spinal alignment. Both mattresses are good for hot sleepers thanks to the breathability of innerspring coils and other cooling technologies.
The Beautyrest Hybrid costs around two times the price of the Saatva Classic for a queen-size mattress. If you’re looking for a twin-size mattress, you can only buy one from Saatva.

The Beautyrest Harmony Lux Diamond mattress is a deeply contouring hybrid bed. Up to six layers of foam create a conforming feeling that’s much like that of a lush memory foam mattress. However, a thick coil system makes it more supportive and cooler than an all-foam mattress. You can choose between the base model or a pillow top option, and the mattress comes in firmnesses that range from quite soft to a more balanced medium.
The Saatva Latex Hybrid is an all-natural and organic mattress. The organic cotton cover and organic New Zealand wool top layer are soft and breathable. The natural Talalay latex layer creates a buoyant, floating feeling. Both the latex layer and the supportive coil layer are zoned, meaning the heavier areas of your body are supported while your pressure points are cushioned. This mattress is firmer than the Beautyrest with a medium-firm feel.
The Beautyrest Harmony Lux Diamond and Saatva Latex Hybrid mattresses have a similar price point. However, the Saatva is slightly less expensive than the Beautyrest.

Simmons Beautyrest Black mattress is their highest-end bed. That says a lot when we’re talking about a luxury mattress brand. The Black mattress is a hybrid mattress that comes in multiple options. The baseline is 13” thick with contouring memory foam, cooling gel foam, and pocketed coil support. It has a medium-firm firmness level. There is then a Cooling Upgrade with the same firmness and a Cooling + Comfort Upgrade for a softer feel and 15” height.
The Saatva HD is a medium firmness hybrid mattress that’s designed for plus-size people. The zoned Talalay latex provides buoyant support, keeping the body from sinking in too low. This layer is softer at the shoulders and firmer along the lumbar region for a balanced feel. A supportive layer of tempered steel coils is 25% stronger than those found in most beds, creating a mattress that’s supportive and durable enough for people who weigh more than 230 pounds.
The Beautyrest Black comes in multiple models that vary in price. The baseline model is comparable in price to the Saatva HD, costing more for the twin XL but less for larger mattress sizes. If you opt for the Cooling or Cooling + Comfort Black upgrades, the Beautyrest mattress will cost more than the Saatva HD.

Unlike most mattresses that are around 10” thick, the Beautyrest and Saatva mattresses are all quite robust. This added thickness reflects the generous use of high-quality materials by both luxury mattress brands.

Saatva mattresses come with a 180-night trial, which is longer than the Beautyrest 100-night trial. However, Saatva charges $99 for returns and returns are free through Beautyrest.
Beautyrest mattresses come with the industry-standard 10-year warranty. Most Saatva mattresses are backed by a more generous 15-year warranty. The Saatva HD is so durable that it has a 20-year warranty.
Beautyrest and Saatva both craft high-end hybrid mattresses, with Saatva utilizing more eco-friendly materials. Because Saatva sells directly to the consumer, their mattresses are on average less expensive than Beautyrest beds. Thanks to plush memory foam layers, Beautyrest is better for soft mattress lovers and offers superior motion isolation.
Most of the mattresses offered by these brands come in multiple firmness options, making them great for every sleeping position. Because Saatva uses materials that are more buoyant and supportive, such as dual coil layers and zoned memory foam, it’s better for plus-size sleepers. Beautyrest’s plush foam layers bring a hugging foam feeling that’s great for side sleepers and lightweight people.
No matter which brand you choose, you can rest easy knowing that you can try your new mattress out in the comfort of your home. While Saatva’s 180-night trial is longer than Beautyrest’s 100 nights, Saatva charges a $99 return fee and Beautyrest does not.
