Stearns & Foster Reserve Hepburn Luxury Plush Review

Updated January 21, 2022

The Stearns & Foster Reserve Hepburn Luxury Plush mattress is one of three beds in the Reserve Collection, their top bed collection. We've tested and analyzed this mattress and found it's a very good mattress for just about anyone; our summary findings for you are below:

Hepburn Luxury Plush Mattress

Comfort Scale Rating

The Hepburn Luxury Plush mattress has a medium feeling; we rate it a 5 on our 10 point Comfort Scale (a 1 is very hard, 10 is super soft). This is right in the middle so it will be comfortable for most sleepers unless you happen to prefer a very hard or very soft mattress. It's also good if you have two people with different preferences and want to compromise. If you would rather have this mattress at a different comfort level, check out the plush pillow top and firm options

The Main Features in Detail

Stearns & Foster Reserve Hepburn cut away

  1. Tencel Cover

    Tencel fabric is made from the eucalyptus plant. The mattress cover is a soft and stretchable fabric that’s made to increase airflow and wick moisture away.

  2. IntelliCoil Micro HD

    A small 1-inch tall metal coil layer that's nestled inside vented pockets. They provide soft conforming support, and the metal coils are more durable than foam.

  3. Indulge Memory Foam

    Indulge memory foam is designed by Tempur-Pedic, which is part of the same company that owns Stearns Foster. This foam gives you soft pressure relief.

  4. IntelliCoil HD

    Underneath the padding layers is a pocketed, dual-stage coil system. Honeycomb design creates a pattern with 20% more coils than a grid design, and the coils are dual-stage. The outer coil extends above the inner coil and provides softness to your curves while the inner coil gives support.  

  5. Precision Edge + Air Vent

    Edge support gives extra support when you’re sitting on the edge of the bed. It makes the whole sleeping surface more usable to the bed’s edge. The design ensures the feel of the bed is uniform to the edge of the bed, and the vented sleeves holding the coils help increase airflow.

Conclusion

The Reserve Hepburn Luxury Plush mattress retails for $4,399 in queen size (there's also a firmer sister model). Both this and the firmer model proved to be exceptional mattresses and we recommend them both.

The Hepburn Luxury Plush tested extremely well with all body sizes; small, medium, and large, and tested well on the back or side sleeping positions. The mattress has a medium feel and there were hardly any pressure points. The mattress also demonstrated good support which is important in areas like under your neck, lower back, and legs. If this does not fit your needs, try our plush pillow top and firm options.

Tencel fabric is used in the cover. It's made from the eucalyptus plant so it's a natural material like cotton. Tencel fabric wicks moisture away to help maintain a dry bed. The Hepburn has a layer of micro coils, a premium feature that helps provide conforming support in a very durable construction method. Indulge Memory Foam, designed by Tempur-Pedic, offers conforming softness. These premium features are the types of benefits you get in an expensive luxury mattress like this one.

A queen-sized mattress is $4,399 and is not an option for most. But if you're shopping for a more expensive luxury mattress then you should consider this Reserve bed from Stearns & Foster. It tested really well for side and back sleepers of all sizes. You can expect to sleep pain-free in this mattress with less tossing and turning because there are no real pressure points to cause that movement. It's a medium-feeling bed that appeals to most of us unless you like a very firm or soft bed. If you like a firmer feeling bed you can look at the firmer sister model of the same name.
