Updated July 7, 2020

The Stearns & Foster Reserve Collection is the top of the line for the brand and includes three different mattress models.  

Stearns & Foster Collections

The Reserve Collection is one of four available collections from Stearns & Foster. View all the collection comparisons and details.

  1. Reserve Collection (top of the line)
  2. Lux Estate Hybrid Collection (mid-range with memory foam top)
  3. Lux Estate Collection (mid-range)
  4. Estate Collection (entry-level)

Type of Construction

The Reserve Collection is the top of the line from Stearns & Foster so they pack a lot into these beds, which underneath it all, are traditional innerspring mattresses.

Stearns & Foster Reserve Collection Overview

All three models have generous layers of premium foams like Indulge Memory Foam and Indulge HD Memory Foam which is actually made by Tempur-Pedic, the memory foam leader. And all three have a nano-coil layer (called IntelliCoil Micro HD) adding conforming support plus durability, reducing sagging over time. The top Reserve model (The Hepburn Luxury Plush Pillow Top) has an additional layer of micro-coils called the IntelliCoil Micro that adds even better sleeping support. The way this model is built, with two layers of micro coils above the innerspring coil system, is exclusive to Stearns & Foster.

More on the Reserve Collection Features in Detail

Stearns & Foster Reserve Hepburn cut away

  1. Tencel Cover

    The mattress cover is a soft and stretchable fabric that’s made with TENCEL material (from the eucalyptus plant) to facilitate airflow and wick away moisture.

  2. IntelliCoil Micro HD

    A layer of micro coils, which are small, 1-inch tall, soft metal coils nestled inside vented pockets. This layer helps to provide soft conforming support, and because of their metal coils, they're very durable.

  3. Indulge Memory Foam

    Stearns & Foster is part of the same company that also owns Tempur-Pedic. Indulge memory foam is designed by Tempur-Pedic, the leader in memory foam, and it provides soft pressure relief.

  4. IntelliCoil HD

    The supporting coil is a dual-stage design. The outer coil extends above the inner coil, the outer coil provides softness to your curves, and the inner coil gives you the support you need. The coils are nestled in a honeycomb pattern to allow 20% more coils than a traditional row pattern.

  5. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    The mattress has edge support that helps when you’re sitting on the edge of the bed. It also makes the entire sleeping surface more usable with consistent support to the bed’s edge. Stearns & Foster’s edge support design is enhanced to ensure the feel of the bed is uniform from the middle to the edge of the bed. Air pocketed sleeves help the mattress breathe and cool for a comfortable deep sleeping experience.

Delivery Method

Stearns & Foster Reserve mattresses can only be purchased from approved online or offline stores. They are big, heavy beds that are delivered by home delivery services. Delivery and the removal of old mattresses are free.

More about the Stearns & Foster Brand

Stearns and Foster became part of the Sealy Mattress Company, serving as the premium sister brand to Sealy Posturepedic. In more recent history, Tempurpedic bought Sealy. Stearns & Foster now resides in the Tempur-Sealy mattress company, based in Lexington, KY. In recent years, there has been a resurgence in the Stearns & Foster brand. Sales growth comes from continued investments in the products. Broad acceptance of the brand by luxury mattress buyers also factors into this.

Stearns & Foster has manufactured the most luxurious and lasting mattresses since 1846. Every Stearns & Foster mattress is built by certified craftsmen in a dedicated luxury cell, meaning that no other models can be built there. Every piece of material that goes into a Stearns & Foster mattress is tested to ensure top-notch durability. By constructing mattresses out of the best materials in the industry, they deliver unmatched comfort and quality. Their foam-encased edge contains a border rod to provide the best edge support available. Each mattress has twice-tempered, individually-wrapped, titanium alloy coils. They deliver the perfect balance of comfort and support.

Conclusion

You can certainly find mattresses that are much less expensive, so let’s first get that out of the way. If you are looking for a high-quality mattress and willing to pay for it, then the Stearns & Foster Reserve mattresses are a good option. While expensive, they do provide a combination of generously applied premium materials from a leading manufacturer. In fact, this is Stearns & Foster's flagship collection.

We've tested all three models and they had excellent test results. The latest beds are improved compared to the 2017 models they replaced (although those were good beds, too).

We recommend all three models. They demonstrated great comfort with essentially no pressure points, along with good support. They're made with premium materials, like layers of micro-coils, and use memory foam made by Tempur-Pedic.
