Does the Beautyrest hybrid need a box spring?
A new foundation will always help to ensure proper setup and support for your new mattress, but we do not require that you pair this foundation with our mattress. You can use a different foundation or box spring as long as it provides proper support for the mattress.
Can you use a Beautyrest mattress with a platform bed?
While a spring or hybrid mattress may do just fine on a slatted platform bed or even the floor, foam will tend to sag through the slats or squash against the ground. So do your Beautyrest mattress a favour and get a box spring!
What happens if you use a mattress without box spring?
If it doesn’t provide enough support in the center, the mattress will sag and be uncomfortable. Any bed frame that isn’t entirely solid or has a support system in the center will more often than not require a box spring.
