Stearns & Foster Estate Hurston Luxury Firm Review

Updated January 21, 2022

Stearns and Foster Hurston Luxury Firm Mattress

The Stearns & Foster Estate Hurston Luxury Firm mattress is the firmest entry-level model they produce. We recommend it because the results from our testing of the bed were pretty good, and the mattress also represents a good value in the premium brand (if you're looking for a firm bed). Check out our test results and detailed review of the features below:

Comfort Scale Rating

The Hurston Luxury Firm mattress is a firm bed we rate 3.5 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). It's a firmer feeling bed, so it'll only appeal to sleepers who like a harder bed. If you like a medium or softer bed you should look at other models.

Pressure Test Results

We had the Estate Hurston Luxury Firm mattress in our facility and pressure tested it with small, average, and large body size people on the side and back sleeping positions. Results give you an idea of how the mattress will work for you since we look at key body sizes. (Learn how we test)

The testing data for the Estate Hurston Luxury Firm mattress was positive for all body sizes and sleeping positions. In the pressure maps below, the precise 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). What the charts and data demonstrate is that this mattress does a good job of contouring body curves with minimal pressure points. And this is important because pressure points lead to tossing and turning as your body moves to relieve the pain, causing sleep interruption. Another important check we do is to measure and rate the support provided by the bed. In this case, the mattress provided decent support as well. Good support keeps your spine aligned so you don't wake up with back pain.

The Main Features in Detail

Stearns and Foster Estate Hurston Luxury Firm Mattress Cutaway


  1. Tencel Cover 

    The fabric is a Tencel plant fiber that comes from the eucalyptus plant. Tencel material is soft and stretchable and improves airflow while wicking moisture away. For those who sweat while they sleep this feature will help to keep you dry for a more restful night's sleep.

  2. Premium Gel Foam

    On top of the innerspring support are several layers of premium gel foam. It helps the mattress conform to your body's curves and lessens excess pressure on your shoulders and hips while you sleep. 

  3. IntelliCoil

    The traditional Stearns Foster innerspring is a dual-stage design that is soft under lightweight and firmer when heavier weight is added under heavy areas like your hips. 

  4. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    The edge support system ensures the mattress is sleepable up to the edges of the entire surface. And pocketed coil sleeves help airflow and allow cooler sleeping.

Conclusion

The Estate Hurston Luxury Firm mattress is a more affordable bed from Stearns & Foster. It's a firm model, yet it still offers very good conforming support for what's one of the firmest mattresses they produce. We recommend this mattress.

The Hurston Luxury Firm tested well for side and back sleepers. There were very limited points of excess pressure, which means you can expect to sleep with minimal tossing and turning. It won't be painfully hard. The support was good to help keep your back aligned while sleeping.

In terms of features, this bed has the same Tencel fabric cover as the most expensive models from Stearns. It also has generous amounts of premium gel foams and a robust dual-stage innerspring system for support. These are all quality features that you get for a relatively lower-priced Stearns mattress.

The mattress feels very good even though it's a firmer-designed bed.  And it's a bed we recommend based on the test results and the relatively low price that still includes premium features you'd aspire to get from a Stearns & Foster mattress.
