Material & Construction

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

Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid mattresses comes in different firmness options as discussed above and price points. The thicker the mattress, the costlier it is. The ultra plush Cooling + Comfort Upgrade is the thickest in the Hybrid line up. Depending on the model, the comfort layers have differences; otherwise, the support system and the cover material is identical in all models.

Each mattress model features a cover made from recycled ocean plastic waste (Seaqual™ Sustainable Fabric), which is a sustainable cool to touch fabric, a love of eco-conscious people. In partnership with Seaqual™, Beautyrest, uses this sustainable fabric technology for its mattress construction. Seaqual leads in ocean plastic recovery and upcycling, by transforming these plastics into high-quality sustainable fabrics, thus each mattress sold adds to the cleaning of oceans and supports marine life. The use of this fabric makes the mattresses luxurious. Beneath the cover is Beautyrest’s proprietary ContourFit® design construction, which adapts to your changing body positions and helps to recover throughout the night as you find the right sleeping posture. Gel based memory foam layers contours the body to provide customized support and premium foam infused with original diamond particles draws away heat from the body helping you to fall asleep faster and remain comfortable all night. The base of each model is made of double-strand pocketed coils (T2 Pocketed Coil® Technology) which makes the mattress supportive in different sleeping positions.

Let’s discuss each model’s unique design and construction features.

  • Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Original (Empress) offers a firm feel with different layers of  memory foam of varying thickness. Beneath the cover is 1 inch of Beautyrest® Gel Memory Foam followed by another inch of the same foam that prevents heat from trapping, creating a cooler environment to sleep. Gel-infusion in two layers add to more cooling and pressure relief. Next to these two layers is 2 inches of medium comfort foam that provides extra comfort before the support core.
  • Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Cooling Upgrade (Trilliant) as the name suggests offers more cooling and support. It has a medium firm feel. 1 inch of Micro Diamond™ Memory Foam just beneath the ContourFit® design, is a special foam which is infused with original diamond particles to carry away heat from the body ensuring you to stay cool throughout the night. This premium layer is followed by 1.5 inches of RapidCool™ Gel Memory Foam, 0.5 inches of Dynamic Response™ Memory Foam and 2 inches of GelTouch® HD Foam. RapidCool™ Gel Memory Foam makes your body feel cool the moment you lay down on the bed and Dynamic Response™ Memory Foam together with GelTouch® high-density foam makes this Cooling Upgrade model more responsive and offers enhanced contouring and pressure relief. For this Cooling Upgrade model you have to pay $300 dollar extra compared to the Original Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid model. This price is worth the cost, for the cooling comfort it offers.
  • Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Cooling + Comfort Upgrade (Trilliant) offers an ultra plush feel with more cooling and comfort layers. Similar to the Hybrid Cooling Upgrade, this model also features 1 inch of Micro Diamond™ Memory Foam just beneath the ContourFit® design. Next follows 3 inches of AirCool® HD Gel Memory Foam, 0.5 inches of Dynamic Response™ Memory Foam and finally 1.5 inches of GelTouch® HD Foam. Micro Diamond™ Memory Foam, AirCool® HD Gel Memory Foam and GelTouch® HD Foam all three work together to offer you the best in cooling and comfort. High-density AirCool® Gel Memory Foam is infused with cooling gel that does not let you feel warm by trapping heat like ordinary memory foam and GelTouch® foam is a soft gel foam that offers soothing comfort, exceptional contouring and cool feeling on touching. These enhanced pressure relieving and cooling foam makes this upgraded model costly by $500 compared to the Original Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid.

Cooling & Temperature Control


Q3. How would you rate the cooling and overall temperature control characteristics of Beautyrest Harmony Lux Hybrid Mattress?

Hybrid mattresses regulate temperature better than all-foam models. The Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid is  a great cooling mattress that comes with advanced cooling technology of Micro Hybrid™ Memory Foam unique in its category, allowing for a cool and comfortable sleep, by conducting heat away from your body. Cover made of Seaqual™ Sustainable Fabric creates a sleeping environment that not only enables you to sleep cooler but also ensures that you fall asleep faster and sleep deeper.

Motion Isolation and Sharing a Bed


Q4. Does Beautyrest Harmony Lux Hybrid Mattress provide reasonable motion isolation when sharing a bed with others?

Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid mattress scores above average in this category. Memory foam are known to isolate motion well. Memory foam of different types in different comfort layers helps to cut down on motion significantly; making, sharing bed with partners easy. Pocketed coils being individually wrapped, respond to any movement independently which minimizes motion transfer to a large extent. Though these coils are individually wrapped, they are responsive, and do transfer little motion while getting in and out of bed. More memory foam in the comfort layers of the upgraded models makes these mattresses better at isolating motion.

Edge Support


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

Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid mattress models offer superior edge support. T2 pocketed coils make the mattress’s support system robust, preventing sinking and sagging along the edges.

Recommendation based on sleeping style

The Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid mattresses have a wide selection of mattresses catering to the need of almost all types of sleepers as it has offerings from, firm to medium to ultra plush.

  • Side Sleepers: Side sleepers put pressure on their hips and shoulders; thus, these areas press against the mattress leading to pressure points. Hence side sleepers prefer a mattress that would cushion their pressure points without sinking deep into the bed. The ultra plush firmness of the Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Cooling + Comfort (Trilliant) upgrade is a good option for side sleepers. The mattress contours the sensitive areas of the body preventing pain from accumulating and disturbing sleep. The cushion offered by the foam layers helps in keeping the spine properly aligned, thus reducing pressure on the lower back. Those in the average-weight category can also sleep comfortably on Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Cooling (Trilliant) as the medium firmness offered by the high-density foam may give adequate support but heavyweight side sleepers will need to explore other options. Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Original (Empress) is not recommended for side sleepers as its too firm and does not cushion the body parts leading to pain under the hips and shoulders.
  • Back Sleepers: Sleeping on the back maintains the natural posture, keeping the spine appropriately aligned. Contouring and support are essential for back sleepers. Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Original (Empress) is a firm mattress which can be a choice of light, average and heavy-weight back sleepers. However, some light weight sleepers may find the firmness not to comfortable to sleep on; they can opt for the medium firm variant i.e.,   Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Cooling (Trilliant). T2 Pocketed Coil® in the support core of both Original and Cooling upgrade prevent the hips from sinking, keeping the spine aligned. The Cooling + Comfort upgrade is too soft for back sleepers and they would sink deep leading to misalignment of the spinal cord.
  • Stomach Sleepers: Stomach sleepers need a firm, supportive mattress to keep their hips and abdomen from sinking deep into the bed. Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Original (Empress) would suit all types of stomach sleepers from light to average and heavy weight. Some lightweight stomach sleepers may also find comfort sleeping on the Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Cooling (Trilliant) as it offers medium firmness with high-density foam (GelTouch® HD Foam) as the last layer before the support core. Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid – Cooling + Comfort (Trilliant) is too soft to suit stomach sleepers.
  • Combination Sleepers: Combination sleepers keep changing positions; thus, they need a good, responsive mattress. With firm, medium and ultra plush firmness the Beautyrest® Harmony Lux™  Hybrid may be a good choice for combination sleepers across all body types, as they have options to choose from as per their need. Pocketed coils at the support core of each mattress supports the body in most of the sleeping positions.
