Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Luxury Ultra Plush Review

Updated January 21, 2022

The Stearns & Foster Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Luxury Ultra Plush mattress is the softest of the three beds in the Lux Estate Hybrid Collection. We highly recommend this mattress. We test and analyze each mattress and the results from this bed are exceptional. Those results and our review of its important features are below:

Pollock Luxury Ultra Plush Mattress

Comfort Scale Rating

The Pollock Luxury Ultra Plush mattress is a medium-soft feeling bed; we rate it 6.5 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). Thanks to its softly neutral feel, it'll appeal to most people, just not those who prefer a firmer bed. If you would rather have this mattress in a different comfort level,  check out the firm and plush options.

Pressure Test Results

We were able to receive and test the Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Luxury Ultra Plush mattress in our building. We pressure tested it with small, average, and large body size people on their side and back sleeping positions. Pressure mapping allows us to see how the mattress will work for you since we look at various body sizes. (Learn how we test)

The test results were excellent for the Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Luxury Ultra Plush mattress with all body sizes and sleeping positions.

We've included the visual pressure mapping outputs below, (blue and green show lower pressure readings, and yellow or red indicate increased levels of pressure from the mattress). Whether small, medium, or large body types, there were minimal points of high pressure for side and back sleepers. (Pressure points lead to tossing and turning as you move to relieve the pressure interrupting your sleep.) 

This mattress is a hybrid model and therefore has memory foam top layers. This style is popular because it provides the contouring support of a memory foam mattress - and we can see the results here. But in addition to that, the hybrid has the innerspring core to keep the springy support and avoid sinking that's a common complaint with all memory foam beds.

The Main Features in Detail

Stearns Foster Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Ultra Plush Cut Away


  1. 1. Tencel Cover - Hybrid Top

    The hybrid design has supportive, conforming foams to give you the feeling of a memory foam mattress. The cover is made with Tencel plant fiber that's from the eucalyptus plant. It's a soft material that improves airflow and wicks away moisture.

  2. 2. Indulge HD Memory Foam + Indulge Memory Foam

    This bed has a beefy 8 cm of Indulge HD memory foam, which is an advanced, super soft memory foam made by Tempur-Pedic.  

  3. 3. IntelliCoil Micro + AirVent

    A micro coil layer of smaller, softer coils helps provide a soft and conforming feeling under your body. They increase durability and add more breathability to the mattress.

  4. 4. IntelliCoil HD

    The Lux Estate Hybrid models have a dual-stage, coil-in-coil innerspring system. The outer coil is soft under lighter weight and a firmer interior coil provides more support as more weight is added under heavier areas like your hips. This design gives 20% more coils than traditional innerspring rows of coils.

  5. 5. Precision Edge + Air Vents

    The edge support design enables the entire mattress to be sleepable so you can use the entire surface - perfect for couples needing the extra space. The coil sleeves have holes to help improve airflow to promote cooler sleeping.

Warranty

The Pollock Luxury Ultra Plush mattress has a full 10-year warranty against factory defects, so you receive full coverage through 10 years of ownership. It doesn't 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 Ultra Plush mattress is a soft feeling bed that we rate 6.5 out of 10. It's a hybrid mattress with a memory foam top above inner-springs underneath. The mattress feels soft yet still has a good bounce to it because of those springs. It tested very well and we recommend the mattress for anybody that likes a softer bed. There are practically no pressure points so the mattress will feel very comfortable while you sleep. For firmer mattresses check out the firm and plush options.

In terms of luxury features, there's a micro-coil layer that gives you a soft conforming feeling. That feeling actually comes from the short, small metal coils - a feature that helps promote durability for a long comfort life. There is also a Tencel fabric cover that keeps the mattress dryer. The premium foams include some layers made by Tempur-Pedic, called Indulge Memory Foam HD and Indulge Memory Foam.

The Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock Ultra Plush is a great bed that we recommend. The mattress had great results when we tested it with small, average, and large-sized people. The mattress provided soft conformance and proper support. The mattress is expensive, so it's only a good option if you have the extra money available for a top-end bed. For those of you inclined to spend extra on a soft bed, this makes a great choice.
