12/2016 we spent 2,400+ on new queen size mattress. The bed is sagging and uncomfortable and creates body pain. We should have read these reviews before purchasing. We will look into a warranty claim but based on other reviews it seems like a futile effort. Buyer beware.
Recent purchases (within past 10 years) of S&F mattresses have shown us that those purchased through Sleepys, now Mattress Firm are crap. After a couple of years, these became so soft that we were sleeping in holes and woke up numerous times during the night due to back and hip pain. Ain't good, especially when you pay over $2K per mattress. King Size Michela was first and replaced in 2013 with the Tinsley.
So, we put in a claim explaining this to S&F both times. First one had a dent more than 1.5", the second didn't last as long, being so soft could support our bodies, even though not permanent indentation of 1.5". We explained this and the fact that customer support person told us they had issues with Sleepy's storing their mattresses improperly and are not selling to them any longer, S&F denied our recent claim last month. We will never buy another S&F mattress and recommend the same to you. We like our new mattress - NOT a Stearns and Foster!
When brand new you will think it’s the greatest mattress ever. Give it a few months and you will wake up suffocating down into a hole, your remotes, dog, partner, everyone will be sucked down into this sinkhole created by whatever mush they make the bed from. Is there a way to fix this? Anyone have ideas? I’ll squirt expandable foam inside, something to firm up this thing, what a piece of **. Don't buy!
After 2 years of using the mattress I notice an indentation and is really getting worst every time. I will have to spend another $2000 again. What a waste of money and time. Next time I will review very well before getting another product.
I have a firm mattress with a pillowtop. It gives me great support and I can sink into it... It's a very heavy mattress and needs to be rotated every three months. I have zero back pain and love, love, love to sleep in it.

When I tried the mattress in the store, I felt immediate relief from back pain. I researched mattresses before shopping and Stearns & Foster is the highest rated mattress with the longest warranty. It felt like the mattress was custom made just for me!
I am a chronic illness and chronic pain patient, and have searched all of the year of 2018 for the perfect mattress for my damaged body. I had previously purchased 2 Stearns & Foster mattresses, but that was when I was well and preferred a firm bed. I purchased the Lux Estate mattress in early July, so the 120 day 100% warranty exchange or return is almost up.
It’s useless to test beds in a store anymore. I don’t know what happens during manufacturing, but this is not the same bed I tried out, and I’ve run into this problem more than once this year. I can’t keep buying and returning mattresses, but I can’t continue to toss and turn in pain all night, not getting enough or quality sleep either.
I bought an organic Latex 3” topper with an organic cotton cover. Hopefully that will help me sleep better. I’m so exhausted throughout the day, I have to push hard to do anything, and I’m disabled, so that makes everything so much more difficult. In short: the manufacturers are making these beds so tight and firm now, that it’s useless to buy an innerspring mattress anymore. Hybrid or not.
I bought this mattress thinking that I was buying the best. I have a bad back so I felt that paying for this supposed quality was well worth it. The mattress looks beautiful, but within 3 months, I noticed that my side of the bed felt like I was in a hole while the other side was very firm and quite noticeably different. I called for a mattress inspection. I was told that it wasn't bad enough. The hole has continued to worsen. My back is always sore and my sleep is terrible. If I roll out of the "hole"...it feels as if I'm on a slope. I called for another inspection and once again I was told that nothing noticeable was wrong with the mattress. I've wasted almost $2000 and now I need to go invest in another brand mattress. This company is difficult to deal with and the quality disappointing to say the very least.
I have had my Stearns & Foster mattress for 5 years. I got a medium firmness with a medium depth pillow top. Very comfortable for the first few years. I began noticing over time where I lay on it, I was creating a body indentation. Now it's to the point that if I try to lay outside of the indentation, I roll into it as I sleep. This is a real problem. Granted I knew the comfort of the pillow top would decrease over time...what doesn't give in that's padded? But this goes beyond that level to the inside support sagging. I feel pretty cheated and disappointed as it has a 10 year warranty. It looks good aesthetically and will not fail the warranty 2" guidelines, but really is becoming uncomfortable.
We purchased this mattress and could only keep it for a couple years due to the discomfort we were experiencing. The sales representatives told us this was a high quality mattress that would provide comfort for many years. We were betrayed by the online ratings at the time and by the company we purchased it from. The mattress had body impressions that did not meet the standard for replacement. It seems the company knows exactly how deep the body impressions will occur and have set the warranty to just a bit more to avoid responsibility. PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE A STEARNS AND FOSTER MATTRESS. YOU WILL REGRET IT.
I bought the Stearns & Foster mattress at TheBay in Canada...owned it not even 2 years and mattress feels like crap!!! Was firm when I bought it. Now it's softened...called the company and told them that it feels horrible, they quickly responded that they don't warranty comfort??? I was like wtf??? I get up with lower back pains and sore legs which I never had before. No my lifestyle hasn't changed and I exercise as usual. Do yourself a favor. Buy yourself a memory foam mattress. Even a cheap mattress I bought for 300$ on Amazon is much better. I now have a Stearns & Foster mattress ready for the garbage. So sad...
Bought the Stearns and Foster Tinsley Estate Mattress from Sleepy's 2 years ago. Worst Mattress I have ever owned. Stearns and Foster replaced mattress After making me jump through Hoops, (Sleepy's was bought out and new company doesn't carry Stearns and Foster). New Mattress is the Estate La Fiorentini IV Luxury Cushion Firm. It has been 2 weeks. Mattress has lump in middle. Will be shocked if this one lasts more than 6 Months. Stearns and Foster is owned by Tempur-Pedic, who also owns Sealy. Will never again buy a Stearns and Foster, Tempur-Pedic or Sealy mattress. Worst support for a mattress I have ever seen and no durability.
We bought Stearns & Foster king size bedding at Star Furniture Sugar Land TX. After 1 year bed has sag 1 inch. Stearns & Foster is refusing to do anything. The warranty will only cover after mattress will sag 1 and half inches. Please don't buy expensive bed from stearns and foster like I did. Company will not stand behind. Worst customer service. We paid $3100. Not worth it at all.
Stearns and Foster is Horrible. We bought our mattress from Ashley Home furniture. We Spent around $2800 for next to the top of the line mattress, the one on the showroom was not too soft and not too firm, but after we received it was so hard, and of course Ashley does not offer a 90 or 180 sleep guarantee. My mistake... We bought $150 pillows and the mattress pad protector that I have accidentally spilled my coffee on (DOES NOT PROTECT).
I went to Ashley Furniture store and complained and they said I need to let it break in to give it a year, so for a year I had headaches, when I woke up now it's our back and hips, feel like we are old people. The pits are horrible! We have turned the mattress every way we can. My husband has to sleep on the sofa because it hurts him so bad! He just had cancer surgery and horrible he can't sleep in his own bed! For a bed we spend almost $3000 for! But JUST A FYI THERE IS A CLASS ACTION AGAINST SEVERAL of the mattress companies. They need to step up and do the right thing... & when people are spending that kind of money, they expect QUALITY!!!
I deeply regret purchasing this mattress. It is not good quality. It has only been 11 months since I purchase and it sags from all 4 edges despite the fact that my husband and I rotate the mattress. It has a lump right in the middle of it. I called Brandsmart to find out to check out the mattress, a technician came out to my house and explained to me that they only consider a mattress defected if it has an inch and a half sag. That's insane! I called Stearns and Foster directly and they simply told me they cannot help me that I have to work with Brandsmart directly. Stearns and Forster do not care about their clients and do not stand by the product. I am extremely disappointed and will not purchase a mattress at Brandsmart ever again.
My mattress is made very well. It's by Stearns and Foster and it sleeps me well. It's the best the quality, comfort, and the beauty. Let's not forget price. Stearns & Foster is United States made and it does not get any better for me.
This is one of the better mattresses I have purchased over the years. It seems to remain durable and you can flip it over which really comes in handy. Next time, I will spend more to get a better mattress.
Great mattress, offers firm support yet very comfortable. Price was not exorbitant like many of their competitors. Would buy another mattress from Stearns & Foster Bedding.
Purchased the Stearns and Foster Pillowtop Lux Estate 2 years ago. Offers excellent support, pillowtop is holding up great. Best of all I am getting a great night's sleep.
This is my second Stearns and Foster mattress, my first one lasted over 20 years. The one we have now is great, it's built well and the inside layers help support our backs. I wouldn't buy any other brand.
Less than two years with constant rotation and the Stearns & Foster bed sags, there's a lump between myself and my husband. His shoulders hurt and my hips hurt. It's not a full 2 inches so the warranty isn't doing us any good.
This is my 2nd Stearns & Foster mattress. The first did sag during the warranty period. It was inspected and replaced very quickly. I did pay more to upgrade at that time. The replacement mattress has served me beautifully for over 10 years now and is extremely comfortable, no sagging. Tip: Always use top quality mattress cover! When they inspect, they look for stains, and that can void your warranty.
We bought this king size Stearns & Foster mattress from Sears. At the Sears showroom the mattress looked comfortable and we really liked it. But just after a week we noticed the mattress tends to sag. We went to Sears and they tried to educate that this mattress is designed to behave in such manner - that it adjusts according to the body shape. Now, after couple more week the problem got worse. WIth sagging it became really uncomfortable and I started noticing back pain.
We looked at the warranty and found it include mattress sagging with the limit of 1.5 inch. It also provided a process to measure it. We followed their process and the measurement came out little less than 1.5 inch of sagging at some locations. We sent this information along with the measurement picture to Sears. The reply we received from Sears was most astonishing. It was - aha gotcha. They said because it is less than 1.5 inch it is not covered by the warranty. Now the question is - if the mattress shows clear sign of sagging, close to their warranty limit, in just couple of months, isn't it a problem? With hindsight, it would have been far better if had bought a regular mattress at half the price. Our 10 years old mattress, that we replaced with new Sterns & Bear was far better.
Bought the top of the line Stearns & Foster King ($4,500.00) Mattress & box spring from Sears. It's been 2 months now and the "Buttons" on the bed are still sticking me. I wake up constantly with body pain in areas where the buttons were installed. I thought it was me at first getting used to a new bed. It's not! We were told initially that we wouldn't feel the buttons, my mistake for believing it. If I return it, it will cost an arm and a leg with all the deductions and fine print. We will try a memory foam cover on top, hope that works. Bad design, what a mistake!!!
Terrible mattress, even worse customer service and They do not stand by warranty. This is my email to S&F customer service "I purchase a new mattress and box spring at Sears on 01.05.2018 and after getting it to my home it is tear on stitches in 6 places mostly by the handles and corners. It happens when I just lift it by the handles because the mattress is really heavy. I was hoping to buy a high quality mattress, instead it tear easily like the cheapest one, I didn't even have chance to sleep on it yet. I'm really disappointed. I'm looking forward to solve that from your side. I also attached some photos." And this is Tina response from S&F customer service "Thank you for contacting us. Sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your sleep set. The retailer that you purchased from will handle all warranty issues or concerns. Please contact Sears customer service at..."
Really? I don't think Sears is responsible for Stearns & Foster products!!! They don't make them. You are!!! Value of my mattress is $ 4,5 at S&F I checked online and see each comes with a 10 year warranty then I register my mattress at your website. They do not stand by warranty. I am guessing that warranty just look nice when someone is buying your product. THAT'S ALL! Enjoy picture of "high quality S&F" mattress! Think twice before you are going to purchase something from them.
Best mattress I have ever bought. Sleeps cool and comfortable. I've had MANY MANY mattresses and NONE of them have even compared. Just bought another one for my guest room! Would recommend to anyone who wants a soft but supportive bed.
I purchased a Stearns and Foster mattress, model "Estate Walnut Grove, Luxury Firm Euro Pillowtop" from Sears. It is supposedly a "memory foam" mattress. My partner and I have our own valleys in which we must sleep, because the memory foam does not ever recover. I would not buy it if I had known.
I bought a mattress from El Dorado Furniture on 9/30/2013 with 10 years of guarantee. The mattress sunk in the middle, I took a picture, copied the original purchase invoice and filed a claim with the manufacturer on 8/30/2017. The manufacturer send me back an email with instructions to first file my claim with the vendor, if they still represent the manufacturer. I checked online, they did, so I contacted the salesperson. She filed my claim and since then they were giving me the rounds until today 10/16/17, they tell me to go back to the manufacturer for my claim.
I contacted the manufacturer again, (they already have the picture and the original invoice), and now they are asking me to send more pictures so they can decide if they'll send somebody or not to verify my claim! I explained to the rep that I am sick, old, and unable to take the pictures they requested but they claim that they need to verify "the authenticity" of the mattress? Doesn’t that appears in the invoice? I feel they are giving me the rounds too, so I need help from you to how I can proceed please. I am retired, my fixed income is SSA and reading Google reviews this manufacturer Stearns & Foster has a lot of complaints! Please I really appreciate your help! Do you know how can I get my mattress replaced. Never been in this situation before and I am not well to handle it now!
Updated on 03/14/2018: I'm still dealing with the ordeal of my defective mattress since my first claim to Stearns & Foster Bedding on October 2017! I finally got an inspection done and they agreed with the validity of my claim, however they are placing unacceptable conditions to do a replacement, such as I can't get a replacement in a local store. According to Sealy I can only choose certain models and after I do, I need to notify them, so "they will manufacture one for me". I need to pay for delivery and disposal of the defective mattress, and the warranty for the replacement is limited and it doesn't include comfort! In other words, whatever they send me, after it is delivered, If it is not good, I lost my rights to a claim! I have placed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau for both the manufacturer and the local store where I purchased the mattress.
THIS I SUGGEST YOU TO DO IF YOU ARE HAVING A PROBLEM LIKE THIS WITH THIS MANUFACTURER! I see in this website that are many people with complaints about their mattress too! At this point I am waiting to hear from BBB, which so far have been very helpful. My terms for replacement are very reasonable: Full credit for my original purchase with the local store El Dorado Furniture. Be able to choose any mattress model, and be able to get it directly from the local store with the full warranty provided to any new purchase. Delivery and disposal at no charge!
At this point I am ready to seek legal advice if they don't approved my terms. At the end they probably will end up paying much more and who knows maybe even a class action lawsuit comes out of all this! My advice again to all with a complaint with this manufacturer is to file a claim with BBB first and then see what happens! They should not be allowed to do this to anyone! I will keep you posted on my case!
Purchased a top of the line Stearns and Foster king mattress with twin adjustable bases. It's clear on the receipt that I have twin support bases. Less than a year it's caving in - I sent pictures of damaged mattress which was close to 200 pounds - they say I have to remove mattress and take pictures of the bases. I purchased it because of bad back and now I need to lift a 200lb mattress according to the customer service supervisor Ledya or that's it. Am I suppose to hire a moving company for hundreds of dollars? Who does one ask to come and lift a mattress that takes two moving men to deliver just to take pictures - is this how stearns and foster gets out of the warranty?
If you are purchasing this high priced GARBAGE - do so without any confidence in the warranty or make sure you buy a mattress that you can lift easily because they will do anything NOT to back up their warranty. BTW: when I told Ledya Of customer service that I could not lift the mattress, refer to the receipt for the base support, her response was, "We will wait for the pictures." Great customer service. Buy anything but Stearns and Foster and get specifics on how the warranty is executed. A disgrace.
Twice I sent all pictures and information to the company regarding the seams falling out. They kept telling me there was no indentation in the seven year old mattress. Finally they understand that it's the seam on the mattress and they said it isn't a manufacture defect. Really it's the seam. Not even an offer for discount toward a new mattress, just there is nothing we can do. This company doesn't stand behind their product. The seams coming out is a manufacture defect!
