Pros: best nights sleep ever
Cons: difficult to part with
I bought a Simmons Baymont Ultra Plush Pillowtop in March '04, and owned it until Feb. of this year, and although it was my priciest furniture purchase, almost $1600, it was also my best. My husband and I loved it. Within the first week of sleeping on it, both of our back pain was gone. I've honestly never had any problems with it in the almost 3 years of owning it.
Not even Guam's humid, tropical climate compromised our mattress like I thought it might. My husband is the area vice president of a large international company, he believes furniture and such is talk for the ladies, but I swear the man would proudly brag and show off to guests his beloved mattress that supported his 240lbs luxuriously. I did my research before I purchased this mattress, it being relatively pricier than others that were available. I can't quite recall, but I believe there are between 760-800 coils in this mattress, compared to the 400-500 coils in other mattresses in other stores. The pillow-top was about two and a half to 3 inches thick made of memory foam, and all this was topped off with a terry cloth, designer looking finish. The price difference between the model without the pillow-top was a hundred dollars, so I figured if I'd consider a $1500 mattress I might as well go all out and for a hundred bucks more get the pillow-top. My husband and I felt that the mattress was balanced by what we thought were strong, firm coils and the soft but not too soft pillow-top. After three years, a combined weight of 380lbs, and high humidity, the mattress still felt and looked new. The salesperson in the showroom demonstrated easy maintenance for the pillow-top; when changing sheets, grab handfulls of the pillowtop and pull upwards where you desired. We honestly didn't have any problems with our mattress, we felt as far as furniture went, our bed a great investment. I was especially glad to not have backpain in the morning as promised by the salesperson.
The only reason we don't have it now was an unforseen business move to a neighboring island, the cost to ship it would have been near the same dollar amount of the purchase price, so I sold it to my Aunt. She loves it and refuses to sell it back to us when we move back home. The Sealy we've been sleeping on for the last 7mos has us appreciating the quality of the Simmons Baymont. Our temporary move has us missing our Baymont Plush terribly, and unfortunately for us, I've heard it's not being sold anymore on Guam.
If I do find the Baymont or it's Simmons equivalent in stores, I would gladly invest in it again.
