Q1. What Is Unique About The Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattress? Does It Provide Superior Cooling, Comfort, Back Support, And Pressure Relief?

Simmons Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid, a newly introduced premier hybrid mattress, features an advanced design with a memory foam top, consistent body support, and top-class motion isolation, ensuring a rejuvenating sleep experience. Offering a selection of Firm or Plush firmness options, it caters to your individual sleep preferences, accommodating back, stomach, and side sleepers.


Harmony Hybrid is designed with a cooling cover to wick away moisture, ensuring a sweat-free and comfortable night’s sleep. The addition of breathable GelTouch® foam enhances the airflow through the mattress, while the pocketed coils facilitate air circulation, preventing heat retention which may be uncomfortable for hot sleepers.

Comfort & Pressure Relief

The Harmony Hybrid mattress incorporates body-contouring foams that aid in pressure relief and comfort. Beautyrest® ActiveResponse™️ Memory Foam contours the body curves to relieve stress from the pressure points. The Plush model gently cradles the shoulder and hips of side sleepers, while the Firm version gives adequate support and an uplifted feel to back and stomach sleepers.

Back Support

Precision Support System™ powers the primary support of the Harmony Hybrid mattress with 875 Series Pocketed Coil® Technology. This coil design provides support throughout the body from head to toe, thus ensuring total comfort and complete rest. The coils also help to maintain body alignment, which is needed for restful sleep.

Q2. How Firm Is Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid  Mattress?

The Harmony Hybrid Beautyrest collection has two offerings in firmness: Firm and Plush. The Firm model gives a sleeping on-top-of-the-bed feel, while the Plush caters to side sleepers by gently cradling the pressure points, thus alleviating aches and pains.

Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid  Firm is 12 inches high, while the Plush has a higher profile of 12.5 inches.

Further, recycled plastic waste from the ocean makes it a sustainable bed loved by eco-friendly shoppers.

Material & Construction

Q1. What is the unique technology, design, and materials used in the construction of the Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattress?

The Harmony Hybrid mattress uses recycled plastic bottles from oceans to create a soft sleeping surface. Premium foams and individually wrapped coils comprise the comfort layer and support system, making a luxurious bed with a price range of $899 – $1499.

Let’s discuss the mattress’ unique design and construction features.

  • Layer 1: The mattress features a cover made of moisture-wicking fabric that enables a cool and comfortable sleep all night. Plastic waste converted into sustainable material gives a soft sensation upon lying on the bed.
  • Layer 2: The comfort layer of Harmony Hybrid incorporates Beautyrest® ActiveResponse™ Memory Foam, which is specially designed to conform to your body curves, thus relieving tension from the critical pressure points. The gentle embrace of the foam prevents aches and pains from developing in the hips, shoulders, and lumbar region, ensuring you wake up every morning refreshed.
  • Layer 3: Beneath the ActiveResponse™ Memory Foam lies the GelTouch® Foam, which further facilitates pressure relief, comfort, cool sleep, and breathability.
  • Layer 4: The base of the mattress comprises 875 Series Pocketed Coil® Technology, a single-stranded coil design that provides support throughout the body in all sleeping positions. The coils being individually wrapped help in isolating motion, thus helping partners to sleep together without any disturbance.

Q1. How Would You Rate Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattress From A Repositioning and Responsiveness Perspective? 


The Beautyrest mattress, crafted from a blend of foam and coils, offers advantages in terms of repositioning and responsiveness. The coils, known for their quick response and bounce, make it easy to shift positions on the mattress. Additionally, it achieves a harmonious balance between providing contouring support and firmness by conforming to the body’s individual curves, thereby aiding in repositioning.


Hybrid mattresses are more responsive than memory foam mattresses. The presence of coils allows quicker response to changes in movement or pressure. When you change sides or adjust your sleeping positions Harmony Hybrid promptly adapts, minimizing the sensation of being trapped or sinking into the mattress. Notably, the Firm model offers even higher responsiveness than the Plush option. Therefore, if you are a combination sleeper who frequently changes positions, you are less likely to disrupt your sleeping partner.

Comfort, Back Support, Pressure Relief


Q2. How Would You Rate Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattress For Providing Comfort And Pressure Relief To Sleepers? 

The Hybrid Harmony is a comfortable mattress with adequate support from head to toe. Two memory foam layers in the comfort system, including Beautyrest® ActiveResponse™ Memory Foam and GelTouch® Foam, combine to offer critical support in the body areas that need the most. ActiveResponse™ Foam contours the body’s natural curves, preventing pressure from building up under the shoulders, hips, and lower back, while GelTouch® Foam enhances comfort and cooling properties.

GelTouch® Foam is engineered to conform to the body’s contours, which helps distribute body weight evenly and reduce pressure points. This is beneficial if you experience discomfort or pain while sleeping.

Cooling & Temperature Control


Q3. How Would You Rate The Cooling And Overall Temperature Control Characteristics Of Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid  Mattress?

Hybrid mattresses regulate temperature better than foam mattresses and Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid is no exception. Its moisture-wicking cover allows you to sleep fresh and sweat-free all night. GelTouch® foam in the comfort layer incorporates gel-infused particles or beads. These additions help dissipate heat, promoting a cooler sleep environment.

Motion Isolation and Sharing a Bed


Q4. Does Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattresses Provide Reasonable Motion Isolation When Sharing A Bed With Others?

Memory foam mattresses generally perform better than hybrid collections in isolating motion. Though Beautyrest® Harmony Hybrid has a pocketed coil support system, it performs equally well. Each coil reacts individually and does not transfer motion to the neighbouring coils, thus isolating motion greatly. Multiple foam layers above the coils absorb much of the motion created so that you can share your bed with a partner, and both sleeps well without disturbing one another.

Edge Support


Q5. How would you rate the edge support of Beautyrest Harmony Hybrid Mattresses?

Edge support becomes important if you want to use the entire bed surface while sleeping with your partner. Harmony Hybrid features memory foam and single-stranded pocketed coils, as already discussed. This combination offers average edge support, and you may roll off while lying near the end of the bed. The Plush model will compress if you sit near the edges, but the Firm version will offer some resistance, making it a preferred option in case you share your bed.

Beautyrest Black and Beautyrest Black Hybrid are the best in edge support with triple-stranded coils that make not only the support system but also the edges robust. With strong edges, these two beds are the most preferred options for couples, who can use the entire bed surface without the fear of falling off.

Recommendation based on sleeping style

The Harmony Hybrid Beautyrest collection offers two types of feel in its category: Firm and Plush, as discussed above. Let’s discuss how the two variants suit the needs of people sleeping in different positions.

Side Sleepers

Sleeping on the side is very common among most adults and is generally comfortable with lower back pain if the knees are supported with a pillow in between. However, this sleep position can put stress on the shoulders. To avoid this, your mattress must adequately cushion your shoulder’s pressure points.

The Plush Harmony Hybrid model is a good choice if you are a side sleeper, as the memory foam top gently cradles your neck and shoulders, preventing the build-up of excess pressure underneath when you sleep.

Back Sleepers

Sleeping on the back (supine position) is considered naturally healthy as the spine remains elongated and benefits those suffering from lumbar spinal pain. A supportive mattress that does not allow the body to sink deep benefits back sleepers. The Firm Harmony Hybrid model offers back sleepers adequate support with an uplifted feel, maintaining the spinal alignment, but the Plush model will not be supportive enough.

Stomach Sleepers

Stomach sleepers, like back sleepers, need a firm and supportive mattress as they put much pressure on the lumbar region. Sleeping in this position puts pressure on the spinal tissues, leading to pain upon waking in the morning.

The Harmony Hybrid Plush will provide little support if you are a stomach sleeper, as your body will sink into the soft memory foam, leading to aches and pains. However, the Firm model will support lightweight to average-weight stomach sleepers, and heavyweight individuals must look for other Beautyrest models.

Combination Sleepers

Combination sleepers shift positions during the night so they can select between the two different firmness options. Because they often switch, either option will provide the necessary support, thanks to the ActiveResponse Memory Foam in the comfort layer, which conforms to the body’s contours regardless of the sleeping position. Those with lighter body weight may prefer the Plush model, while those of average or heavier weight can rest comfortably on the Firm version.
