Brian sent me an email asking for a comparison to the Simmons Beautyrest Legend Found at Sleepys:
To be honest this is a Sleepys exclusive model they use so that they can not be price shopped, this allows them to charge whatever they like for the mattress knowing that the customer can’t go store to store looking for a better price.
That being said The Legend is really a version of the Beautyrest Black series! Yup, that’s right.The small degree of deference being an extra layer of padding, a fancy cover and a couple of extra turn at the top of the coil. The extra turns in the coil and padding are to add to the luxurious feel. The fancy cover is for eye appeal. It has no meaning in practical use, when you cover the mattress with a mattress pad and sheets.
The Black models use a triple strand wire coil…3 wires twisted together to make the coil, called a “Cable Coil”. In the Black models, every other row of coils has the cable coil and every other row has a single wire coil.
When most people think about what is important in order to get a good night’s sleep, they automatically place the responsibility solely on the mattress. A great quality mattress is important, but what most people tend to forget is that the right pillow can be crucial in helping you achieve a good nights sleep. Pillows not only impact the quality of your sleep but also how healthfully we rest. Choosing the wrong pillow can add to neck pain, discomfort, arm and shoulder numbness and can affect snoring. Mattresses can often be very pricey, but a good pillow is attainable no matter what your budget may be! A common misconception is that all pillows are the same; basically, if you’ve seen one pillow you’ve seen them all. This could not be further from the truth. The goal of selecting a pillow is to help your head remain in a neutral alignment throughout the night, which means your head is aligned squarely with your shoulders. There should be no bending back too far or reaching to far forward. The right pillow can promote this healthy head and neck position and greatly increase the quality of your sleep.
