In the previous installments on the subject of bariatric mattresses, I discussed the obvious benefits of selecting a model with an extra heavy coil system from either the Simmons Beautyrest Black beds or the Stearns & Foster Estate series. These are both high end products in terms of price, and as such, may be out of reach for some shoppers. The basic Stearns & Foster Core Collection features an 825 coil (queen) unit in the entire lineup. These springs are made of 13 3/4 gauge titanium alloy wire for solid, durable support. Whether you select the Heidi Plush Euro Pillow-top, the Josette Ultra Firm Tight-Top, or any of the in between comfort levels, you’ll still have the benefit of some of the sturdiest coils available in any mattress. The basic beds from Simmons are the Beautyrest Classic Recharge models. Unlike the Stearns & Foster Core Collection mattresses, Simmons uses the lighter 15.5 gauge wire in their plush tight-top and pillow-top beds, so if you want the stronger 13 3/4 gauge coils, go with either the extra firm or the luxury firm offerings.
