Ultra Firm Stearns and Foster Estate Mattress

5

I purchased the Stearns and Foster Estate Ultra Firm mattress after experiencing waking up with backaches for some time on an older Sealy Posturepedic. I suffer from bad back problems and find that memory foam and pillowtop mattresses are not supportive enough for me. After traveling to Europe and sleeping on a rather hard hotel mattress (European hotel beds are commonly like this) I found that my backaches went away. While pillowtops and memory foam topped mattresses are in abundance, it was not easy to find a firmer mattress. I wound up going to a large local furniture dealer who specializes in a large line of mattresses in different brand names. I found out that stores put different names on their mattresses to prevent shoppers from price shopping from store to store. I can only tell you that in the line of Stearns and Foster, I purchased the firmest mattress they had. I have had this mattress now almost 5 years and there is no signs of any decrease in the amount of support or any sagging, I wake up with no backache. The Stearns and Foster mattresses offer a low profile selection which is not as thick if you have an antique bedframe that would make the mattress too high. The newer mattresses now are made a lot thicker than they used to be so you have to take this into account especially if you are using the mattress on top of a box spring. The Stearns and Foster mattress I purchased came with the box spring as a set and that is mostly how they are priced - as a set. You can select the low profile option in both the mattress and the box spring. The only drawback to this mattress is that it is one sided only - meaning that you cannot filp it over to the other side for evening out the wear. You can of course reverse it head to foot as is recommended once a year to eliminate wear patterns and extend the life of the mattress. Being that it is a heavier mattress than my old one, I have not done this as regularly as I should and it has not effected the wear

During the adventure that is mattress shopping, my husband and I stumbled across the Stearns & Foster Estate Walnut Grove Luxury Cushion Firm Mattress. While my husband was immediately drawn to it because it was rated one of the most firm mattresses at the store, we soon realized that this was not the mattress for us. I was committed to giving it a solid chance because the main reason we were shopping for a new mattress is because our current one is not working for my husband and his chronic back issues. That and it is over eight years old and time for it to get replaced. While it did not come with a plush pillow top like I would prefer, I could easily get past the point that purchasing an aftermarket plush mattress pillow top is just something I may need to do. After testing it out at the store for 15 minutes, I could already tell that this was not the mattress for our family. I had my husband act like he was tossing and turning like he does in his sleep when his back is in pain and unfortunately I felt like I was moving around with him on a waterbed or something. In addition, as a side sleeper, I had to test out how a few minutes in fetal position felt on the Stearns & Foster Estate Walnut Grove Luxury Cushion Firm Mattress. The result was not one that I could settle with. There was just too much pressure on my shoulders for me stay comfortable after an extended period of time. Overall, I was pleased with the quality that Stearns & Foster makes their mattresses with. I could tell that if we took it home that it would have lasted for a number of years of continuous use. The comfort factor, on the other hand, was not going to work for our family and that is ultimately why we decided not to purchase the Stearns & Foster Estate Walnut Grove Luxury Cushion Firm Queen Mattress.

The night of great sleep

This bed will allow for most people to enjoy a great night of sleep, the luxury you will feel when you lay down in this bed and matteress is by far a huge reward, as you are awarding your body with one great night of sleep in comfort and very few distractions, the only distraction that may come to you while sleeping on this matteress is that you might want to make sure you have a flexible pillow that can support your head as this bed will allow for some sinking and if you have a pillow that sinks with the matteress it will help your back and neck to also enjoy a nice night of sleep. The Sterns and Foster Estate Walnut Grove Luxury Firm Euro Pillow top, is a bed that earns high praise in my books and also others for being a very nice and comfortable night sleep.

Fantastically comfortable with no breakdown after two years!!

My husband and I are overweight. We have now had this mattress for two years and it is still as good as new. We have friends who said they would never pay that much for a mattress, but considering we've never had to add a foam topper, never turned it/flipped it and there are no dips where we sleep, it's AWESOME and well worth the money we paid! For overweight people with terminal illnesses and sleeping disorders, this has been the best money we've spent on a mattress and it will last better than any we've bought before! Comfort Very plush without feeling overly soft. Also, the pillow top is not overly warm. We have friends with a foam topper on their firm mattress and they complain that it's too warm, it holds there body heat in. No problem here! Support Great support for those with back problems. It doesn't feel like sleeping on a rock or slab as most firm beds for back pain that I've tried in the past. Firmness I think the firmness is perfect. I feel well-supported but the pillow top makes it feel luxuriously plush. Durability The fact that we both weight over 250 lbs each and we have no divets on either side of the bed after two years without turning is amazing to me. Given how much we spent for the mattress, though, it certainly makes it worth the money. I suppose it would be bad if it had those issues despite spending all that money on it.
