Pressure Test Results

We tested the Estate Hurston Luxury Plush mattress in our facility with small, average, and large body size people on the side and back sleeping positions. We measure the pressure readings and analyze the support provided for each body size and sleeping position. The results give you an idea of how the mattress feels for you. (Learn how we test)

The test data for the Estate Hurston Luxury Plush mattress was excellent for all body sizes & sleeping positions. The pressure data is easy to see in the color-coded format (blue and green are lower pressure and yellow or red show increased levels of pressure under a resting body). You can visualize the minimal pressure points under the different sleeping positions. That part is important because pressure points lead to tossing and turning as your body moves to relieve the pain, causing sleep disruption. The mattress also provided proper support under important areas like the lower back. Stearns & Foster did a great job with their line of mattresses since most models achieved similar positive results. This makes it less confusing because you can narrow down a selection based more on how a mattress will feel (your preference of firm or soft) and the bed's features and price.

Conclusion

The Estate Hurston Luxury Plush mattress is an excellent medium feeling mattress from Stearns & Foster. It's very supportive while also feeling very soft underbody curves, as demonstrated in our testing of the bed.

The Hurston Luxury Plush tested well for side and back sleepers. The mattress conformed softly to our test subject's curves with minimal areas of high pressure, so the mattress will feel soft and pain-free to most sleepers. Pressure points are bad because they cause your body to toss and turn, which interrupts sleep, as your body moves to relieve the pressure points.

There are several layers of premium gel memory foam, a Tencel fabric cover, and a robust innerspring support system as key features in this mattress. All of these are high-quality materials included in the premium brand.

The bottom line is that the mattress tested great with all sleeping positions. And with the added features and relatively lower price (for an S&F mattress) we believe this is a bed we can easily recommend. It's a medium feeling comfort that will appeal to almost everybody unless you're a person who needs a very hard or very soft sleeping surface.
