Comfort Scale Rating

The Hurston Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress is a medium-firm bed we rate 4 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). The mattress is on the firmer side but it'll feel ok for most people. However, if you prefer a softer bed you'll want to consider a different bed.

Pressure Test Results

We tested the Estate Hurston Luxury Firm Euro Pillow Top mattress with small, average, and large body size people when sleeping on the side and back positions. 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 Firm Pillow Top mattress tests were excellent for all body sizes & sleeping positions. The visual presentation of the data is easy to see as color-coded (blue and green are lower pressure and yellow or red show increased levels of pressure under a body laying on top of the bed). You can see this mattress has very little excess pressure (little yellow/red colors).

In a case like this with minimal pressure points, there will be hardly any painful pressure when you're sleeping. You'll be able to sleep pain-free with less tossing and turning. While the mattress is designed as a firmer model, it still does a good job of contouring body curves to provide a quality sleeping surface.

The Main Features in Detail

Stearns and Foster Estate Hurston Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress Cutaway


  1. Tencel Cover 

    The mattress cover is made of Tencel plant fibers that come from the eucalyptus plant. Tencel is a soft and stretchable fabric that improves airflow and wicks moisture away.

  2. Premium Gel Foam

    There are several layers of premium gel foam to help your body nestle softly into the bed. 

  3. IntelliCoil

    The innerspring design is based on a dual-stage coil that is both soft and supportive depending on whether there's a light or heavyweight on the coils. So it feels soft but provides support under heavier areas like your hips.

  4. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    Edge support allows you to sleep comfortably up to the edge of the mattress. And the pocketed coil sleeves help airflow to create a cooler sleeping environment.

Conclusion

The Estate Hurston Luxury Firm Euro Pillow Top Mattress is a medium feeling bed that's been constructed with a puffy pillow top. It makes a wonderful feeling bed that's firm, yet still very comfortable. We recommend this mattress.

The Hurston Luxury Firm Pillowtop tested exceptionally well for both side and back sleepers. It performed equally well with small, medium- and large-sized people, both in terms of pressure relief as well as support. These qualities will ensure you can sleep with less painful pressure points or back pain.  

Similar to the other models with the Hurston name, this mattress has several premium features, starting with many layers of gel foams. The support of the mattress comes from the high-quality innerspring system that's a dual coil-in-coil for variable support. The Tencel fabric is a breathable fabric made from the eucalyptus plant.

The pillow top design provides a cushy, but not too soft, top to absorb your body's curves. The mattress tests demonstrated it can handle small or large body types in a similarly supportive manner. Based on those test results, along with the included quality features, we recommend the mattress. It's a nicely appointed bed at this price, which is still much less than most of the mattresses produced by Stearns and Foster.
