Simmons DeepSleep

  • Inexpensive
  • Not as comfortable as other mattresses
  • Lacks pocket coils, weight support and pillow top
Where to Buy

The budget-priced Simmons DeepSleep mattress offers a variety of comfort levels, but the signature trait of this line is the lack of pocket coils. Instead, the DeepSleep relies on double-tempered, heavy-gauge coils that are not hinged together, as they are in the Sealy Posturepedic line. The DeepSleep also lacks weight support or other costly extras, such as a pillow top. This mattress is the best bang for your buck if you're really looking for a bargain, reviewers say, but if you have a larger budget, consider the more expensive Simmons Beautyrest line -- the best-reviewed of which is the Simmons Beautyrest World Class (*Est. $1,050 to $3,200, with foundation).
