Rockwell Plush Pillow Top Mattress

Comfort Scale Rating

The Rockwell Plush Pillowtop mattress is a softer-feeling bed we rate 7 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). It's soft like you'd expect in a pillow top mattress, so if you have more of a medium or firm preference then you'll want to look at other models instead. Maybe the Rockwell Luxury Firm (firm feel) or the Rockwell Luxury Plush (medium feel).

Pressure Test Results

We tested the Estate Rockwell Luxury Plush Pillow Top mattress in our own facility and pressure tested it under small, average, and large body size people on their side and back sleeping positions. These 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 Plush Pillow Top mattress was excellent for all body sizes and sleeping positions. The pressure map pictures below allow you to 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 reveals that this mattress distributes weight and contours under the body curves to minimize painfully sleep-disrupting pressure points. The mattress also demonstrated proper support to areas like the lower back, shoulders, and legs. The support is important to achieve a restful night's sleep.

The Main Features in Detail

Stearns & Foster Rockwell Cutaway


  1. Tencel Cover 

    This cover fabric is a moisture-wicking material called Tencel fiber that comes from the eucalyptus plant. Tencel is soft, stretchable, and improves airflow to help keep the bed cool and dry so you sleep better.

  2. Indulge Memory Foam

    There is a layer of Indulge Memory Foam, made by Tempur-Pedic, along with additional gel foam layers to help the mattress contour under your body.

  3. IntelliCoil

    The mattress softness and support are aided by the dual-stage coil system. The coil is softer under lighter weight but gets more supportive under heavier weight.

  4. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    There is robust edge support so you can comfortably sleep or sit on the edge of the bed, and the coils' sleeves help promote airflow to allow cooler sleeping.

Conclusion

The Estate Rockwell Luxury Plush Pillow Top is a soft, puffy mattress that delivers exceptional contouring and support. It rated excellent in our own testings leading us to recommend this mattress for all sleepers. If you like a soft mattress this could be the right bed for you. If you like medium or even firmer beds then this may be too soft for you.  

The mattress was tested under small, medium, and large body sizes, in back and side sleeping positions, and the results were excellent. Our pressure mapping data showed there were no serious pressure points that would interrupt sleep. The mattress showed it can help all body sizes sleep with minimal pressure points while providing good support at the same time. In part, this may be because of the key features included in this premium mattress. Like the Indulge memory foam, which helps to keep the mattress soft and conforming. And also the dual-stage innerspring is soft at initial load but becomes more supportive as heavier weight is on it - usually the hip area.  

Overall, if you're considering a soft, luxury mattress then this particular model is one we'd recommend. If you like firmer beds then you can find other good choices, like the Rockwell Luxury Ultra Firm model. While this mattress is on the expensive side and not in the price range for everybody, if you do have the extra money and are looking to get a high-quality mattress then we'd suggest considering this on your shopping list.
