This is our first Stearns and Foster. We originally bought the Stearns and Foster's Chastity FIRM Euro pillowtop, and it was just too firm for us. Luckily we were able to exchange it for the "plush" model, and it is perfect. We love it! We upgraded from a queen sized bed, which was a step up as well.

Pros:
Extremely comfortable, best sleep in years!
Cons:
It may be a little tall for some people.

We were overdue for a new bed and searched for what our ideal bed would be. Neither my husband nor I like firm beds, so we narrowed our search down to soft/plush beds. We were not impressed by Tempurpedic or other memory foam mattresses, and we were also underwhelmed by Sleep Number. We wanted a bed that did not have excessive heat buildup, and both memory foam and Sleep Number beds have an issue with that. We tested the Stearns and Foster Estate Collection and found that the Luxury Plush innerspring mattress was our best bet. The first night we had it, I slept so well that I didn't want to get out of bed the next morning! We've had it for a while now and still love it. If you like a softer bed, it's worth the extra money to go with the Stearns and Foster Estate Collection Luxury Plush! :)

I purchased this mattress because of the S&F quality, I was drawn to the cover, having latex in it. I have ALWAYS slept on my stomach, (bad habit, I know), and this mattress almost broke me of my habit due to the extreme plush quilting. (my face got smothered in the holes/button areas, whatever they are called) ANYWAY...so this mattress is VERY comfortable; however, I would definitely recommend getting the non-pillow top. I found myself sleeping across the mattress to avoid all of the extra cushioning and getting sucked into the pillow top. I would absolutely recommend this mattress, but I would strongly suggest NOT getting the pillow top. Aside from price, I think the only noticeable difference was that the non-pillow top did not have latex. In the long run, I think the very same mattress without the pillow top would hold up better, as I am relatively small and somehow the top conformed to me after a week or two. It is a very nice mattress. almost 15" deep (some people like this) and it is pretty heavy. If you are comparison shopping at different retailers, it is comparable (perhaps a bit nicer, but definitely comparable] to the AMY EPT plush model by S & F. Hope this helps! ;o)

Bought bed in 2011 at Macy's after trying another bed that didn't suit us. Macy's was good about the exchange. We paid more for the upgrade and because it was a S&F. Initially, bet felt wonderful, bithin 6 months there was a hump down the middle of the king sized $3,200+ mattress. We have endured it for 1 and 1/2 years, waiting for it to get to an inarugable 1 1/2" sink hole on each side, as I have read that getting a replacement is next to impossible. We are currently dealing with back/neck/leg pain and we are right at 1 1/2" on each side.

Pros:
Felt great in the store, seemed like a good deal after spending days researching and testing every mattress we found
Cons:
Center collapsed over 1.5 inches after 2 years, Warranty process is long,frustrating,not all money back

We learned the hard way that Stearns & Foster mattresses are made by Sealy mattress company and have fancy tops. The Inner spring support system in our mattress failed (collapsed) after 2 year anniversary of purchase date, so the pillow top and fancy covering was all useless. The warranty process worked in a way so we thank the company for not leaving us totally of luck. BUT, please read on about how the warranty went for us: it took 3 months, we had to fill out 3 separate forms ( first online, then 2 separate paper forms via US Mail), we were forced to submit high quality photos, and we were forced to have a mattress inspector come into our bedroom of our home during business hours. Then the official mattress inspector cancelled on us two times after I already took off work for the day; the constant work schedule changes drove my boss crazy. Reasons for the inspector cancellations were unbelievable; the company said it involved economics and fuel costs so they can't have drivers come out to only one house for the day; they need some minimum number of home visits per day. The second time, they called to change the schedule on us because the inspector has to do the scheduled homes in the most fuel efficient order so they needed to change our appointment at the last minute. We had to sleep on an air mattress for 3 months because mattress was so useless and REALLY hurt our backs. Getting prorated credit for our mattress at the same store we bought it ( so we could get something else) and having to pay $89 for removal of the defective mattress has not made up for the hell we experienced due to poor craftsmanship and a company's lack of quality control. I love honest helpful reviews, so I have tried to create one and waited to post this one after our experience was finally over.

Buy your bed when MOTEL 6 sells their used beds and you will get a better bed! MACY's ran off with the cash. Complete failure!


“A Crippling Mattress”

Pros:
Attractive
Cons:
Body depressions, customer service, value, comfort, support

Wife and I have bought two SF mattresses in the past. Each lasted an avg of 12 years. Bought the newest (an Estate series in Luxury Plush for nearly $2.5K) in March of 2010 from The Roomstore (Grapevine, TX), which has since gone out of business. Now (only 28 months later!) the body depressions where we each lie are so broken down that we both awake in pain and unable to stand up straight for the first 10-15 minutes of every morning. We're moving into the guest room this afternoon until this mattress/foundation is relpaced with something new, one way or another. I will contact S&F today to see what they might offer, but as their warranty card specifically says no body depressions less than 1 1/2" will be covered under warranty, I have few hopes they'll stand behind their product. Will update after talking to them, but in the mean time I would STRONGLY suggest others NOT purchase one of these torture devices.
