Updated January 21, 2022

Comfort Scale Rating

The Pollock Luxury Cushion Firm mattress is a medium-firm feeling bed; we rate it 4.5 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). It'll appeal to most sleepers although it's a bit on the firmer side of medium. Unless you like a softer feeling bed (or a very hard bed) you'll be ok with this medium type of bed. If you would rather have this mattress in a different comfort level,  check out the plush and ultra plush options.

Pressure Test Results

We tested the Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Luxury Cushion Firm mattress in our own 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 testing data for the Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Luxury Cushion Firm mattress was very positive for all body sizes and sleeping positions. In the pressure maps below, the precise pressure mapping data is presented in an easy to see color mapping format (blue and green are lower pressure and yellow or red indicate increased levels of pressure from the mattress). You can visually see that all of the sleeping positions, with small, medium, and large body types, experienced minimal amounts of pressure (too much pressure can lead to tossing and turning as your body moves to relieve the pressure and that interrupts your sleep). Most Lux Estate models perform well, so you can focus on the features and firmness or softness of individual models when narrowing down your choices.

More Details


The Main Features in Detail

Stearns Foster Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Cushion Firm Cutaway


  1. Tencel Cover - Hybrid Top

    The mattress is a hybrid design, with more conforming foams like a memory foam mattress. The fabric is a Tencel plant fiber that comes from the eucalyptus plant. It's soft, stretchable, improves airflow and wicks away moisture.

  2. Indulge Memory Foam

    This bed has 6 cm of Indulge memory foam, which is an advanced memory foam made by Tempur-Pedic. There's another layer of Gel Memory Foam on top of this one. These layers help relieve body pressure and make the mattress more comfortable.

  3. IntelliCoil Micro

    Another layer of the cushion under the body curves is a micro-coil layer of soft coil springs. The metal springs help provide a soft, conforming surface under your body. They are more durable than foam and help the mattress keep the same feel for a long time.

  4. IntelliCoil HD

    The dual-stage innerspring has an outer coil that is soft under lighter weight and a firmer interior coil that provides more support as more weight is added under heavy areas like your hips. Plus this design gives 20% more coils than traditional designs.

  5. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    The edge support system makes the mattress consistent and sleepable up to the edges so you can sleep on the entire surface. The pocketed coil sleeves help improve airflow to promote cooler sleeping.

Warranty

The Pollock Luxury Cushion Firm mattress has 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 Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Luxury Cushion Firm mattress is one of three Stearns models with the "hybrid" construction. For those of you not familiar, the hybrid construction became popular in recent years because they have the soft, conforming top like memory foam but still also have the innerspring support of traditional coil beds. 

The Hybrid Pollock Luxury Cushion Firm tested well for side and back sleepers at all sizes, showing minimal pressure points meaning you can sleep with less tossing and turning, so your sleeping's not interrupted. It provided very good support, which is important so you don't wake up with back pain. If firm does not work for you, check out the plush and ultra plush options.

Same as the other two Pollock models, this mattress has a micro-coil layer to help give you a durable, yet conforming layer of comfort. It also has a soft, breathable Tencel fabric cover that's made from the eucalyptus plant, and premium foams like Indulge memory foam from Tempur-Pedic.  

The mattress feels great, bottom line, so we recommend this mattress. It is a more expensive mattress so we know it's not cheap or affordable for everyone. But if you have the money and are looking for a higher-end hybrid style bed this is a good one to consider.
