The Main Features in Detail

Stearns and Foste Lux Estate Cassatt Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress Cutaway


  1. Tencel Cover

    The cover is a plant fiber derived from the eucalyptus plant. The fiber is called Tencel and it's the soft and stretchable cover material that improves airflow and moisture-wicking.

  2. Indulge Memory Foam

    Premium Indulge memory foam is made by Tempur-Pedic, the leading producer of premium memory foam mattresses. Indulge foam is a pressure-relieving material.

  3. IntelliCoil Micro

    This is a layer of micro coils, which are smaller coils less than 1 inch tall. These coils help the mattress conform to your body and they're also more durable than foam because they are metal. But don't worry, they are very soft.

  4. IntelliCoil HD

    The innerspring system is a 2-stage, dual design. The coil in coil design features an outer coil that is softer when first engaged and a firmer interior coil that kicks in to provide more support under the heavier parts of your body. This design gives you 20% more coils than traditional designs.

  5. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    The edge support system makes the entire top sleeping surface usable, so you can sleep right up to the edge of the bed. The airflow is enhanced with breathable pocketed sleeves.

Conclusion

The Lux Estate Cassatt Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress from Stearns and Foster is a medium-soft feeling bed that costs $2,999 in a queen size. We love this mattress and highly recommend it because it performed very well during pressure testing for all body sizes and comes with premium features.

The Cassatt Luxury Firm Pillow Top tested well for side sleepers and back sleepers. It provides super contouring so there are hardly any pressure points (which can lead to tossing and turning if they're too great). Testing also showed the bed provided support in important areas like under your lower back. Poor support can lead to back pain.

It has some real premium features to go along with the higher price. The mattress has a Tencel fabric cover, a plant-based, moisture-wicking top. There are layers of premium foams such as the Indulge Memory Foam, and other premium gel foams. It also has a layer of micro coils in the comfort padding layers. Micro coils are short, soft little coils that act like foam layers providing support, but they are much more durable because they are metal. So the mattress feels the same much longer and does not lose the conforming feeling as fast as any all-foam mattress. Lastly, it also has a very premium dual-stage coil featuring a coil-in-coil design for variable support under your body's curves.

The Cassatt Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress is a fantastic bed from the Lux Estate collection. It is a medium-soft feeling bed that will appeal to most sleepers, and it also has the premium features you'd look for in an upper-end Stearns & Foster bed.
