Why Trust Us?

Every time you sleep on a Stearns & Foster mattress, you’re enjoying the craft of 175 years in the industry. That’s several generations of innovation dedicated to fine-tuning the quality of sleep health, culminating in the premium products that are the Stearns & Foster mattresses of today.

To keep that momentum going, Stearns & Foster counts on a diverse team of reputable interior design gurus in order to keep a finger on the pulse of the latest sleep health concerns and the comfort trends that give these hand-crafted mattresses their signature opulence, from presentation to performance.

While memory foam and hybrid mattress types are quickly becoming the top dogs in the industry, Stearns & Foster sticks to tradition with pocketed coil mattresses across three flagship collections:

  • The Estate Hurston collection
  • The Estate Rockwell collection
  • The Lux Estate collection

At the foundation of each model is patented pocketed IntelliCoil technology, along with a comfort layer unique to each separate line. Depending on the specific combination, this provides a variety of comfort levels that buyers can also complement with alternative pillow top mattresses for a boost of comfort we find reminiscent of luxury hotel suites.

On the outside, high-quality fabric, weaving, and stitching wrap each Stearns & Foster mattress in a ribbon of the brand’s hallmark navy banding as a nod to its 175-year legacy of refined tradition.

Shopping for high-end mattresses is a great way to ensure your final pick provides quality sleep for years of use. With that in mind, each collection offers a different level of comfort and support, as detailed in this side-by-side comparison.

Who is Stearns & Foster Best for?

The biggest benefit of pocketed coil technology is its adaptable comfort that “flexes” with the body whichever way it moves, unlike memory foam that contours to the body. For that reason, Stearns & Foster beds are best if you prefer to sleep on top of a mattress rather than sink into it, but still enjoy a little bounce to help get in and out of bed.

Pocketed coils are also ideal for back sleepers since the network of coils are reinforced to support the body where it’s the heaviest (the back and lumbar), while gently cradling the neck and legs. This helps to retain the organic shape of your spine while distributing weight across the entire body, which eliminates pressure points.

And since these mattresses range between 13.5–16 in thickness, they offer enough support to comfortably accommodate you and your sleep partner without compromise.

In the end, we recommend Stearns & Foster mattresses to:

➕ Shoppers with bigger budgets

Back sleepers (though, any sleep position is fine)

➕ Couples

➕Sleepers looking for a studier mattress foundation than memory foam

How to Choose a Mattress

Here are some extra tips for mattress shopping from our sleep specialists.

Comfort & Firmness

Even after hours of research, you won’t know which mattress is best for you until you try it out. That’s why we take the guesswork out with our exclusive BedFIT technology that performs a series of tests and statistics to find a bed tailored to your sleep needs.

How you sleep also plays a role in determining the ideal mattress for yourself. To help you on your journey, make sure to read our guides, including:

Motion Transfer

Particularly light sleepers benefit the most from mattresses that absorb movement. While memory foam is the best at reducing motion transfer, the individualized flexion from pocketed coils delivers comparable results.

Mattress Temperature Regulation

As mentioned above, a series of coils at the bottom of a mattress is the best way to keep your sleep conditions breezy and cool. High-end mattresses, like Stearns & Foster models, go the extra mile with integrated side vents, while memory foam mattresses might include cooling properties in the foam to keep things sweat-free.
