Why it takes twice as long to craft a Stearns & Foster

Overall look

One striking feature of Stearns and Foster mattresses is that they look great. Many mattresses are overly plain and really need to be spruced up with fancy bedding to make them look presentable in a bedroom.  Stearns and Foster are different in this regard. The mattresses are designed to have a great look and luxury appearance.

Padding Materials

Stearns & Foster products have luxury materials and padding. Most of their collections offer customers a choice of either latex foam or memory foam padding and a pillow top or SmoothTop Construction.

Fabrics

Stearns and Foster take their fabrics very seriously and do not skimp on quality. Their mattresses have a “Cashmere infused” covering. The covering is a fabric blend of cashmere that offers a cool, smooth, luxurious and absorbent sleeping surface.

Wide range of models

Stearns and Foster provide their customers with a vast variety of models so that you can find one that best fits your specific requirements.  Their mattresses vary in price, construction and comfort level.  The price range is usually from $1,200 to $4,000.  The comfort levels available at Stearns and Foster are plush, cushion firm, firm and ultra firm. It may take a bit of research to decide which comfort level suits you best.  They also provide variance in mattress build, with conventional innerspring models and models that are hybrids or memory foam and innerspring.

Stearns and Foster mattresses come in three main collections or product lines:

Price/Value

Stearns and Foster gives customers a lot of choices with its various models.  Depending on the model, the price can get quite hefty if you are on a budget.  If you are going to make a purchase from Stearns and Foster, you are suggested to get one of the lower-cost pieces. Keeping in view the durability concerns, choosing the lower-cost model is probably the way to go.

Longevity and durability

The biggest complaint from customers is longevity. Many users reported sagging in the mattress after a short period of time.  Based on the structure and construction of the mattresses, longevity is an issue.  If you are not a skinny or light weight person, you will soon begin to notice depression forming in the center of your Stearns and Foster mattress.  If you are looking for a durable mattress and are obese, this mattress is not recommended for you.

Thickness and Firmness Levels

Stearns and Foster mattresses are thick, indeed. From 12 inches (30.5 cm) to over 20 inches (51 cm) for their most models, this is a hefty and heavy mattress with significant edge encasing and tufted surfaces.

Good Comfort and Support

It doesn’t matter which Stearns and Foster model you choose, all these mattresses will provide you with a great balance of support and comfort. These mattresses have an individually wrapped titanium coil system, and they may have a varying number of comfort layers and memory foam on top.

Good circulation

While purchasing memory foam mattresses, circulation is always an important concern.  Memory foam can heat up and cause disturbance and discomfort during sleeping hours, if there isn’t something in the structure of the mattress that prevents this.  Stearns and Foster’s mattresses have a proprietary vent system that prevents the mattress from heating up, enables good air circulation and provides a nice and cool sleeping experience.

Good for motion transfer

Stearns and Foster’s products are great for couples, worried about motion transfer. The individually wrapped coil system minimizes sleep disruption, caused by motion transfer.  This is a unique feature of this mattress, and it is a big plus if you are sharing a bed with a partner.
