Love the site and forum, it saved us from buying a Simmons Black semi-firm mattress for 1,800 CAD today then demistified the Google reviews for Saatva mattresses.
Do you have any brands/stores you would recommend in the montreal area that would offer a product similar to the Simmons mattress above but with a better value/quality?
Thank you very much!!!
I’m glad you found us
There is more information in post #9 here about the different ways that one mattress can “match” or “approximate” another one. Every layer and component in a mattress (including the cover) will affect the feel and performance of every other layer and component and the mattress “as a whole” so unless you are able to find another mattress that uses exactly the same type of materials, components, cover, layer thicknesses, layer firmnesses, and overall design (which would be very unlikely) then there really isn’t a way to match one mattress to another one in terms of “comfort” and PPP (Posture and alignment, Pressure relief, and Personal preferences) based on the specifications of the mattress.
Mattress manufacturers generally try to differentiate their mattress from the mattresses made by other manufacturers and don’t normally try to “match” another mattress that is made by a different manufacturer so while you may find similar mattresses that use “similar” materials or designs and there would be many others that are in a similar general category (see this article) … it’s very unlikely that you will find another mattress that is specifically designed to “match” or “approximate” the Beautyrest Black you tested so the only way to know how two mattresses compare for you in terms of how they “feel” or in terms of firmness or PPP would be based on your own careful testing or actual sleeping experience on both of them.
The Beautyrest Black also uses lower quality materials so I certainly wouldn’t want to “match” the quality of the materials inside the Beautyrest.
The better options or possibilities I’m aware of in and around the Montreal area (subject to making sure than any mattress you consider meets the quality/value guidelines here) are listed in post #276 here.
A forum search on Montreal (you can just click the link) will also bring up more comments and feedback from other members in the area that may be helpful as well.
