Beautyrest Black Mattress Highlights

  • You have some choices to make when it comes to the Beautyrest Black. There are three different cooling and comfort options to choose from, each even more cooling and more comfortable than the last.
  • No matter which Beautyrest Black model you choose, each comes with a special cooling layer called the BlackICE™ 4.0, designed to help you sleep both cooler and longer.
  • Beautyrest refers to the Black mattress as their premier line, meaning it includes all of their latest innovations.
  • The Beautyrest Black hybrid mattress scored a perfect 10/10 in our spinal alignment test, making it a great choice for supportive and restorative sleep.

Beautyrest Black Testing Highlights

During our lab testing, the Beautyrest Black impressed us with great scores for motion transfer, pressure relief, and spinal alignment.

Almost No Motion Transfer

If you sleep with a partner, kids, or your furry pet, motion transfer is something you should look out for. When you or your sleep partner moves throughout the night, the last thing you want is to be awoken by their tossing and turning. The Beautyrest Black scored a 9 out of 10 for motion transfer, meaning you will barely be jostled by the movements of you bed partner.

Fantastic Pressure Relief

Waking up with aches and pains due to your mattress can leave you feeling groggy all day, especially if you already suffer from back, neck, or hip pain. It is ideal to sleep on a mattress that is soft enough to relieve pressure from these crucial areas.

The Beautyrest Black mattress scored a 9 out of 10 for pressure relief. The comfort foam layers kept away excess pressure, and the pocket coil system was supportive without causing undue pressure.

Perfect Scoring Spinal Alignment

Your posture is just as important at night while you sleep as it is during the day when you’re walking around or sitting at a desk. Your mattress should keep your spine straight while allowing it to maintain its natural curve. Obviously, the Beautyrest Black does just that because it scored a 10 out of 10 for spinal alignment.

Can I finance my Beautyrest Black mattress?

Beautyrest has partnered with Affirm to offer financing to their customers directly through their website. You can apply for financing at checkout, and if approved, you have loan options for 3, 6, or 12 months. Choose one and continue to checkout. However, Affirm is not available in West Virginia or Iowa.

Should I flip my Beautyrest Black Mattress?

You should not flip your Beautyrest Black mattress as it is a no-flip design. To prolong the life of your mattress we suggest rotation.

How do I clean my Beautyrest Black mattress?

To clean your Beautyrest Black mattress, apply baking soda to the stained or soiled areas, let stand, then vacuum the mess. We do not recommend that you use any liquids directly on your mattress to prevent material breakdown.
