Simmons mattress test and review

Simmons mattress test and review

It was in 1870 that the American ZG Simmons invented the first spring mattress. Almost 50 years later, these mattresses cross our borders to establish themselves on the French market.

For 90 years now, SIMMONS has been designing and manufacturing its mattresses on 2 sites in the North and East of our country. 90 years of innovation and know-how in bedding, using advanced technologies and noble materials. 90 years of handcrafted mattress models and assembly in its tricolour factories.

SIMMONS is 6 mattress collections that offer different technologies and comforts. We chose to test the Brooklyn mattress from the Beautyrest Black collection and the Sleep Mode mattress.

Our opinion on the delivery of the Simmons mattress

Distributor network

As with most of the big names in bedding, you will not be able to order your mattress from the brand’s website.

However, it offers to guide you by offering you the stores closest to you. All you need to do is enter an address or geolocate yourself. The advantage of the point of sale is that it will allow you to test your future bedding on site. You also have the option of finding resellers online.

Please note that delivery times and prices vary from one reseller to another. You will have to do some research to find the one that will offer you the most interesting conditions: some will offer you delivery, others will charge you for it. For delivery, you will have to wait 4 to 6 weeks to receive your mattress.

Many brands offer delivery.

The presence of the brand in a large number of brands can promote the delivery process or even the immediate availability of your mattress in-store.

Simmons Return Policy

Test the mattress

Unlike its competitors BULTEX or EPEDA, SIMMONS does not allow you to benefit from the “Satisfied or exchanged” offer. The brand also does not offer, like most online universal mattress sites, the 100-night trial period, at the end of which, if you are not completely convinced, you have the option of requesting the free recovery of your order and full refund.

You will need to check with the reseller to find out if they offer this type of service.

A policy that depends on that of the reseller

Many retailers can allow you to try the mattress. So you can be sure that you are making the right choice.

Advantages and disadvantages of the Simmons mattress
