Pressure Test Results

We tested the Estate Hurston Luxury Plush Pillow Top mattress with small, average, and large body size people on the side and back sleeping positions. The pressure readings analyze the support provided for each body size and sleeping position, and the results give you a good idea of how the mattress will feel. (Learn how we test)

The test data for the Estate Hurston Luxury Plush Pillow Top mattress is excellent for each body size and sleeping position. It's easy to understand the pressure data in the color-coded format below (blue and green are lower pressure and yellow or red show increased levels of pressure under a resting body). Looking at this set of pressure maps we can see there is very little excess pressure on this mattress, which means the bed will feel very comfortable and shouldn't cause tossing and turning. We also review the areas requiring proper support, like under the lower back, and this mattress also provided proper support

Based on the exceptional readings from our testing we felt really strongly that this mattress earned a "Recommended" rating

Warranty

The Hurston Luxury Plush Pillow Top mattress has full a 10-year warranty against factory defects, so you receive full coverage through 10 years of ownership. It does not cover abuse or misuse. Warranty is handled directly by Stearns & Foster customer service at 1-800-697-3259.

Conclusion

The Estate Hurston Luxury Plush Pillow Top mattress is an excellent mattress that we recommend. It's a softer medium feeling mattress that is made with a puffy pillow top construction.

The Hurston Luxury Plush Pillow Top demonstrated excellent results for side and back sleepers. There were very minimal pressure points, which is important because too much pressure leads to sleep-disrupting tossing and turning. Our test results showed that even for very large or very small people this mattress did a good job conforming to the various body sizes with minimal extra pressure.

In terms of features, the mattress has multiple layers of premium gel memory foam, a soft, breathable Tencel fabric cover, and a coil-in-coil innerspring system. These are all nice features to have in a mattress. It's no surprise to find them in this Stearns & Foster since it's promoted as a premium mattress.

Most importantly, the mattress feels as good as the testing data showed. It feels soft and supportive for all body sizes and since it's a medium-feeling pillowtop it will appeal to most people. It's also a nice value at the lower end of the price spectrum with Stearns and Foster. We highly recommend this bed.
