Beautyrest Recharge Gia (Lydia Manor)
(called Lydia Manor
by some retailers) is a series of innerspring mattresses
in the Beautyrest Recharge Collection
. There are at least five models, Luxury Firm Pillow Top
, Plush Pillow Top
, Luxury Firm
, and Extra Firm
, ranging from 12" to 14" in height, and from 2.5 to 7.5 on the comfort scale. Although these are listed as innerspring mattresses, a few retailers call them hybrids because of the foam
All of these feature support of the Beautyrest Pocketed Coil
. This relies on the 800 count individually wrapped coils
. Also called "Marshall coils" after their inventor James Marshall, these coils dampen motion transfer as demonstrated in Simmons
' popular bowling ball ad, where an array of bowling pins on the coils remained in place when a bowling ball was dropped on the coils. This means that one sleeper's movements will not disturb another sleeper.
Besides reduction of motion disturbance, pocket coils conform to a sleeper's body contours. This provides support for parts of the body between the large areas, such as the hips and shoulders, to reduce pressure points and keep the spine in line. The Pocketed Coil
innerspring unit lies on a ½" pad of Energy Foam
to protect the coils by absorbing impacts.
Another key feature is the AirCool Design
, which promotes air circulation through the mattress for cooling and freshness. This counters the accumulation of heat to keep the mattress from becoming too warm for comfortable sleep. Components of this system are the ventilated open-cell memory foam in the quilting, configuration of foams for vertical ventilation, the ventilated foam encasement, and mesh border panels for air flow into and out of the mattress.
mattresses is knit Damask quilted to two 1" sheets of AirCool Foam
. The foam is for cushioning, while the open-cell structure makes it more resilient as well as breathable. The cover fabric is also quilted to 1.25-lb. Celestra
, a bonded-fiber polypropylene quilt-backing.
The comfort layers of each Beautyrest Recharge Gia
mattress has ½" of Gel Touch
and ½" of AirCool Memory Foam
. Gel Touch
is a blending of gel
and poly foam for pressure relief. The AirCool Memory Foam
combines the conformability of memory foam
with a breathable cell configuration. Other comfort layer components determine the final comfort levels of the models.
The two pillowtop models, Gia Luxury Firm Pillow Top
and Gia Plush Pillow Top
, have 2" each of Plush Comfort Foam
just under the quilting. Each has ½" of Energy Foam
(very firm) on the bottom of the comfort layer just above the innerspring unit. They differ in the wire gauge of the coils, 13¾ for the firmer model, 15½ for the Plush.
The Gia Luxury Firm
(tight top) and Gia Plush
(tight top) do not have Energy Foam
in the comfort layers, but they do have ½" of Plush Comfort Foam
at the bottom of the stack. The difference in firmness of these two models can be seen in the coils, with the Plush
having 15½-gauge and the Luxury Firm
The Beautyrest Recharge Gia Extra Firm
mattress shares 13¾-gauge coils with the Gia Plush
. However, it has a ½" Energy Foam
bottom comfort layer. Energy Foam
is a heavy grade of polyurethane foam
. It has a high ILD, and its role is shock absorber.
The Beautyrest Recharge Gia
models are compatible with foundations
such as platforms
(Triton Powerbeam Foundation
) and adjustable beds
and Renew Powerbase Plus
). These mattresses carry the Simmons
10-year non-prorated warranty (though some retailers offer a longer warranty). They are available at many national, regional or local retail outlets.
