Pressure Test Results

We received the Estate Rockwell Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress in our testing 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 data for the Estate Rockwell Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress was excellent for all body sizes and sleeping positions. In the pressure maps you can see the color-coded data (blue and green are lower pressure and yellow or red show increased levels of pressure under a resting body). The data shows this mattress curves and contours with minimal pressure points, so you can expect to sleep without pain from sleep-disrupting pressure points. The results also showed there was good support from the mattress so areas like the lower back will be properly supported. Even weight distribution, and proper support, are a great combination in a mattress and this one had both, so we recommend the mattress.

Conclusion

The Estate Rockwell Luxury Firm Pillow Top mattress is a medium-feeling bed selling for $2,399 (queen-size mattress only). This unique model gives you a firmer feeling on a puffy pillow top, so you can have that firmer feeling while also having a cushy top. We recommend it.

The mattress was tested under various body sizes and sleeping positions and it demonstrated conforming support. Our pressure mapping data showed there were no serious pressure points that would interrupt sleep. Overall, all of the test results were very good. As mentioned above, a pillow top design on this mattress gives you a cushy feeling while still offering a firmer experience. In other words, you don't have to have a hard, flat top to get the firm feeling - you can get that in a puffy top as well. The Indulge Memory Foam layer helps make the mattress conform and support with minimal pressure and is a special feature in most Stearns Foster beds. Also, the innerspring works to add both comfort and support. These features all work in unison to combine for the overall feel we found that we really liked (and tested well).

We recommend this mattress based on the features and the positive test data. If you are looking for a firmer, upper-end mattress that isn't too hard then this would make a good choice. It's firm, but not hard and you get the premium features you'd be looking for in a $2,000 mattress like this.
