They get their name NxG from the next generation memory foam that is NxG. This foam is made from a patented formula and has an advanced “open cell” design. Now unlike a Tempurpedic it reacts to body pressure rather than body heat, so you won’t get hot in it. Another benefit to the foam is that it has a quick recovery time, so that you don’t have that feeling of being in a pit like you do on a Tempurpedic. The last great feature that is in all the mattresses is that there is no break in period for a NxG bed. The way the NxG feels in the showroom is how it will feel in your home the day you get it.
Picking one of these wonderful Beautyrest mattresses may pose a challenge, but my reviews of the NxG Series may make your decision a little less agonizing.
Simmons Beautyrest NxG 100 Firm and NxG 100 Plush
The starting point for the Beautyrest NxG Series is the 100 Plush and 100 Firm. They are great entry level memory foam beds. In the NxG 100 Series it has 1” of NxG Advanced Memory Foam sitting on top of 980 individually pocketed coils. The firm in this series is the firmest of all the NxG beds. These are great beds for the price. If you look at the 100 Series expect to pay approx $1,700 for a Queen set. They accomplish exactly what you need in a bed: Postural Alignment and Pressure Relief.
Simmons Beautyrest NxG 250 Luxury Firm and NxG 250 Plush
This is the middle of the road when it comes to series. Now there is a big difference between the NxG 100 Series and the NxG 250 Series. The difference is that you gain an additional 1 ½” of advanced memory foam. This means that the NxG 250 has 2 ½” of advanced memory foam sitting on top of 980 individually pocketed coils. The level of support is the same as in the NxG 100 Series; however you gain much more pressure relief. This is very important if you are a side sleeper, because the amount of pressure applied to your shoulders and hips is much less, because of the extra memory foam. In my opinion as a Sleep Professional this is the best bang for your buck in the lineup. If you decide that this is the right sleep system for you expect to pay between $2100-$2200 for a Queen set.
Simmons Beautyrest NxG 400 Firm Pillow Top and NxG 400 Pillow Top
The Simmons Beautyrest NxG 400 is approaching the top of the line for the NxG Series. The advantage you gain in this mattress over the NxG 250 is that the NxG 400 has 4” of advanced memory foam compared to 2 ½” in the NxG 250. This provides a much softer feel and much more pressure relief. When you compare the two beds and lay on them both you may not feel that much of a difference between the two to justify the additional $400-$500 in price. If you lay on them both and can’t tell the difference get the NxG 250 and save the money regardless what the salesperson tells you.
Simmons Beautyrest NxG 575 Plush Pillow Top
This is the top of the line when it comes to the Simmons Beautyrest NxG Series. The NxG 575 has 2” of advanced memory foam in it as well as 3 ¾” of latex in it. The latex in the bed makes it a little bit more conforming; however the bed will have a much firmer feel to it. Now if you are the type of person that needs to have the top of the line then go for it, but if not stick with one of the lesser ones and save the cash. Expect to pay $3000+ for a Queen Size NxG 575 Set.
