Stearns and Foster is a popular mattress company known for its use of high-quality materials to handcraft each mattress with luxury details. The brand falls under the umbrella of Tempur Sealy International, who also makes mattresses under Tempur®, Tempur-Pedic®, Cocoon™by Sealy, Sealy®, Sealy Posturepedic®, and Optimum™.

There are four collections available: Estate, Lux Estate, Lux Estate Hybrid and Reserve. Within each collection, there are a series of models that can further be defined by their feel and mattress top.

The standard collection with the most basic models is the Estate Collection. We’ve put together a guide to show you the features available in the Estate Collection and what to look for when you go shopping at your local retailer.

Key Features

  • PrimaCool™ Performance Fabric with TENCEL®: This fabric is a high loft and double stretch-knit, which feels soft yet durable. Tencel is an eco-friendly fiber that is known for its moisture-wicking properties, which will help the mattress breathe and keep you cool.
  • Advanced Adapt™ Foam: This adaptive foam is available in select models within each collection (about half the Estate Collection features this foam). It is designed with a slower response time for extra indulgence and enhanced durability.
  • IntelliCoil® Advanced: This coil is exclusively made for Stearns and Foster. The outer coil is designed for durability and comfort. The inner coil is made to adapt to your personal weight for an ideal level of support.
  • PrecisionEdge™ System: A network of miniature coils brings support and breathability all the way to the edge of your mattress, increasing your sleep surface.
  • S&F Air Vents: Vents are built into the mattress to increase airflow and breathability.
  • Hand-embroidered accoutrement
  • Cashmere infused quilts
  • Queen set ranges from $1,499 to $1,999

Comfort Level and Mattress Top Options

After you find a model within a collection that you like, you will also have the option to pick your comfort level and your mattress top.

Estate Collection Comfort Levels

  • Ultra firm
  • Firm
  • Cushion firm
  • Plush

Mattress tops can come in something called a “tight top” which is a non-pillow top or a Euro Pillow-top option.

Depending on what is available at your local retailer, you should be able to select a model, comfort level and mattress top that is the best fit for you.

Retailers & Models

Stearns and Foster sells their mattresses to a range of retailers, including large department stores like Macy’s and Sears. You can search for the stores closest to you through the Stearns and Foster website.

Each retailer names the models in their store. This means that a mattress at Macy’s may be called one name and the same mattress will be called another name at another store like Haverty’s or Raymour and Flanigan.


This makes it difficult to compare prices across retailers and not all retailers will have every single model in every single comfort level and mattress top available.

That is why it’s important to know as much as possible about the mattresses before going to a retailer. If you have an idea of what you want, you will be able to narrow your choices down more easily.

Example Estate Collection Mattress Review

The video below is a review of the Estate La Castello V Luxury Plush Pillow top mattress.  You can only find this exactly named mattress in one store, but it does give you a sense of what you can expect from the Estate collection.  You can see all the luxurious extra touches that the mattress has and you can get a sense of the feel of the mattress as well.  Despite the pillow top and all the comfort materials, the mattress was a little firmer than I expected.  Overall, it still had a great feel.

Models in the Estate Collection

The Estate Collection features 10 models in total. Five models are considered Level 1 while the other five are Level 2The two levels have the same coil system, the same number of coils. The Level 2 will be more money because it will feature the newer Advanced Adapt™ Foam in the models.

  1. I had a Sterns and Foster in 1996 which I left with the ex-husband in 2009. The bed was fantastic quality with comfort and sagging. There was only a slight intention in 2009 (13 years). I purchased a Simmons in 2013 when I remarried and the thing is awful!!!! 2 inch sagging… Sears has just given us a 85 percent refund and we are looking at a Sterns… The warranty is now only 10 years which makes me think the quality has decreased. How long has the reviewer had the mattress and has it sagged?

  2. Can you tell me if the sterns and foster is good for heavier people. Had a sterns and foster prior and loved it but now weight change. Husband and I want to know if will be comfortable if heavy
