Stearns & Foster Estate Hurston Luxury Cushion Firm Review

Updated January 21, 2022

The Stearns & Foster Estate Hurston Luxury Cushion Firm mattress is a medium-firm feeling bed that we highly recommend. The results from our testing were excellent, and the mattress is a decent value at a price that's lower than most Stearns & Foster mattresses. Shopping for a mattress can be confusing with all the similar names, so we compile test results and reviews to make it easier:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Hurston Luxury Cushion Firm mattress is a medium-firm bed we rate 4 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). While the mattress is on the firmer side, it's still a medium in that it will feel ok for most people. But if you like a soft bed you'd want to consider something else.

Pressure Test Results

We tested the Estate Hurston Luxury Cushion Firm mattress in our facility with small, average, and large body size people on the side and back sleeping positions. The pressure tests help you see how the mattress will perform depending on your body size and your sleeping position. (Learn how we test)

The results for the Estate Hurston Luxury Cushion Firm mattress tests were very positive for all body sizes and sleeping positions. You can see the visual presentation of the data is easy to see in color-coded format (blue and green are lower pressure and yellow or red show increased levels of pressure under a resting body). This mattress has very little excess pressure (little yellow/red colors). This means there won't really be painful pressure points when you're sleeping and you can instead expect to sleep pain-free with little tossing and turning. The mattress also had good support under the lower back and under the legs - both good things to help keep your spine aligned while you're sleeping.

The Main Features in Detail

Stearns and Foster Estate Hurston Luxury Firm Mattress Cutaway


  1. Tencel Cover 

    The bed has a Tencel plant fiber cover that comes from the eucalyptus plant. Tencel material is soft and stretchable, improves airflow and wicks moisture away.

  2. Premium Gel Foam

    There are several layers of premium gel foam, which help the mattress conform to your body's curves.

  3. IntelliCoil

    The high-quality innerspring is a dual-stage design that is both soft and supportive depending on whether there's a lighter or heavier weight on the coils.

  4. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    Edge support makes the mattress sleepable to the edge of the bed. And pocketed coil sleeves help airflow and allow cooler sleeping.

Conclusion

The Estate Hurston Luxury Cushion Firm mattress is an affordable medium-firm model from Stearns Foster. We recommend this mattress.

The Hurston Luxury Cushion Firm test results were exceptional for side and back sleepers. The bed did a great job keeping painful pressure points to a minimum, so you could expect to sleep relatively pain-free. And it provided good back support to keep your spine aligned whether you're a large or small person.

The mattress has several premium features, starting with many layers of gel foams. They're on top of a high-quality innerspring system that's a dual coil-in-coil design. The cover is made with Tencel fabric, which is a breathable fabric made from the eucalyptus plant.

We really liked this bed for all those reasons. And for the price, which is at the lower end for S&F beds, it's a relatively good value and competes with most mattresses on the market. It's a safe bet if you're looking for a high-quality, medium-firm mattress.
