Bought a Stearns and Foster in around 2000 and after 2 years developed dip in middle. Warranty people came out and replaced bed with brand new bed. New bed lasted about another 2 years before another dip developed. I am 6 foot, 175 pound man. No abnormal wear and tear. Flash forward, 2018, I foolishly buy another Stearns and Foster, thinking worse that happens they replace. 9 months, NINE months, bed develops horrible dip. But this time they deliberately engineered it to have a way out of honoring warranty. They put hard plastic buttons on the surface of the bed and created divots. The divots make it hard to measure a "dip", and hard to define what a "dip" is... convenient.

Bad designed bed. But worse, company must know by now their product is defective and yet they keep selling to us sheep. I wish the entire management staff of Stearns and Foster to sleep on their products!!! Horrible bed. I will NEVER buy another Stearns and Foster. Some class action lawyer or Attorney General really ought to go after them. False advertising, false product. Total rip-off.

Stearns & Foster Cal King Lux Estate model. I am a fit 185 lbs man. I am also an airline employee and travel most of the month. That said, I sleep on the mattress about 10-12 days a month. Cumulatively, I have slept on it less than a year. I am using the recommended S&F foundations as well. I have a terrible time sleeping because when I lay down, my body is in a head-low orientation. This is unnatural and uncomfortable. There is about a 2" depression where I sleep. Expensive horrible mattress. I filed a warranty claim with S&F and they have not responded.

I was convinced by salesman in a higher end store that Stearns & Foster mattress is top quality and we won't be disappointed. I also was happy to hear it was made in the U.S.A. and the quality check person who built the bed even signed it. Don't buy into this and don't waste your hard earned money. We have a big hump in middle of bed and I never had lower back pain until I bought this mattress. We have a king size bed and we are both in a hole and if you lie on side or stomach and lie with a knee bent facing middle of bed your leg is higher than rest of body. I'm just so unhappy and want other people to know this and not make the same mistake as us.

We purchased the S&F because we wanted the best that money can buy. Unfortunately this mattress is not it. When the company delivered the mattress it was beautiful. Almost too nice to put sheets on, but that all changed in a few days, months and years. The bed started sagging after about 1 month. It's been all downhill from there (literally). The hole is so deep, that I stopped sleeping in the bed years ago, but my wife tried to tough it out. She finally gave up when her back got so bad that she now takes pain medication. She weighs about 135lbs so this highly priced mattress only created a hole in our pockets and a hole in the bed.

If you are looking for long lasting quality, DO NOT! buy this mattress. BTW, customer service is non existent and your 10 year warranty... LOL. The store will tell you to call S&F, then they will explain to you what they are not going to do. So please do yourself a favor and spend your money on a quality mattress for far less money and back aches...and no black holes.

This mattress is about 15 years old, used for one person, and is still in great condition. I vacuum it maybe once a month. Has kept its shape with very little change. The worst thing is that it is way too heavy for me to turn or flip on my own. Moderately firm with pillow top.

If you are thinking about buying a Stearns and Foster mattress for the the quality you might as well flush your $2000.00 down the toilet!! This is the poorest quality mattress I have ever owned!! After 1 year it started sagging and now after 3 years it has a hole on the right and on the left. Looks like ** after I make the bed. You would think that a top of the line mattress would last longer than 3 years. It will definitely not be replaced with another Stearns and Foster. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!!!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

March 2013 we purchased the Stearns and Foster "Nancy" luxury firm euro pillowtop - $2000.00 out the door.

In June 2017 we threw "Nancy" out. It had become a back breaker.

The sag that had developed in that mattress in four years was sheer misery. I dreaded getting into bed at night. On a freshly made up bed the sag(s) on both my side and my husband's side was visible although it did not measure "1 1/2 inches" deep. I believe the industry "standard" is that a mattress is suppose to last 9-10 years. That Stearns and Foster piece of junk was on its way to the dump in 4.

Mattress Firm has only queen beds on display. Queens are built differently from Kings, so I find out. I've bought a 2500$ king bed. First mattress developed pits on both sides. There is a mountain of very hard padding in the middle. The more you sink into the pits over time. They gave me another to replace and it does the same thing. On a cold night it is almost impossible to get close to your partner. I hate the mattress and the company. A "Lin" inv customer service refuses to let anyone contact management. I just get spun with benign excuses. I will never buy from this company again. When asked why the Sterns and Foster King mattresses in motels are so comfortable, this "Lin" tells me that motel mattresses are made different. Hence, there is a issue in design. Do they want to do anything about it? NO!

I want a full refund, and get another brand of bed that not sold by fraudulent means (queen to try in store). Warranty said after the first bed, that mountain in the center was a fluke and would not happen again, HA! I've jumped on the mountain in the center, I had my kids jump on it, I placed very heavy weights to break down the hard mountain, and I considering driving my Tahoe across the middle of the bed to break down the mountain.

After 5.5 years the mattress sagged the required 1.5 inches so that Haverty's agreed to replace the mattress. I got a serta mattress. The box spring was not replaced. My point being just wait and this mattress will reach the 1.5 inches. It actually sank the rest of the way pretty much on its own. We bought a new mattress and it was only slept on intermittently by my daughters when they came home. The way they test the mattress is to put some weights on the two ends of a string and drop it over the bed then use a block of wood with a ruler glued to it to place on the bed. I just made my own device and kept checking it monthly.

We bought this mattress (Stearns and Foster Whitegate Luxury firm) and within 5 years it started to have a sag in the middle. The sag is so bad two people cannot sleep on the mattress without rolling to the middle. I had the seller come out and check the mattress because there is a 10 year warranty. It has a 1" sag. The warranty will not kick in without a 1.5 inch sag. Bought a Serta mattress to replace this one and am keep it in another room until it gets a 1.5 sag so I can at least get something back for this bad purchase. Lesson do not buy Stearns and Foster.

Bought a king size Stearns and Foster pillow top Cora mattress... not even 3 years and the mattress is sinking in so bad it's uncomfortable. Our previous mattress was a queen size Simmons Beautyrest Do Not Disturb. We had that mattress when our first son was born. He is still using that mattress and he is 18! No problems with it sinking or losing shape. This Stearns and Foster mattress cost double the price and we have to get rid of it after 3 years! Not worth the money. Mattress is garbage! We kept a cover on it to abide to warranty requirements and of course the warranty doesn't cover sinking! Sinking is on both sides of the bed and I weigh 105 lbs! Company probably knew that was a flaw! Never again! We just purchased a Simmons memory foam mattress and are happy to put this Stearns and Foster junk into the trash!

Lost 2 mattresses. Never experienced this much incompetence. Ordered a Stearns and Foster mattress through a friends and family discount, so warehouse direct. I've had many friends buy mattresses and give rave reviews which is why I went to them. Well I really regret that. The order will take 4-6 weeks before I get it. Okay, that's pretty normal for a mattress. 6 weeks passed and there's nothing. I got an email with a tracking site but it hasn't updated at all. I call several different numbers, getting passed around from customer service to delivery and back.

Finally I get ahold of a representative. She says the factory sent it to delivery... checks in with delivery and they never received it, despite paperwork saying someone had signed it in. So they lost the mattress. After a few more phone calls, I finally get a representative who says they will re-process the order: I have to wait another 4 weeks, they will expedite this order. I ask for a delivery fee refund, they reluctantly grant it. I wait. Nothing. No phone calls or emails. I call them to check on the status. They don't know, say they will call me back tomorrow. They don't call me back, I have to call them after 2 days of waiting. Guess what? They lost this mattress too. I'm cancelling the order and taking my business elsewhere.

In short: they lost 2 mattresses, with no idea of how that happened. First of all, that's just a bad business model: how often do you lose mattresses (and by extension profits)? Second, throughout this whole 3 month process, since I first put in my order and paid, never did the company contact me. I had to call them when 6 weeks were up to ask about my order. It took me several calls before I could even find a representative, let alone one who wouldn't just transfer me to the next person. Wish I could give them 0 stars.

This mattress has been a disaster since the beginning. While the delivery guys were still here, I told them it felt like is was broken and sagged. They said to call the store. I did and store replaced. The next one they bought out was a little better for about a month. It sags, has no support, and is very uncomfortable.

This is our fourth Stearns & Foster Mattress from Bloomingdale's in Boca Raton Florida. Our salesperson was wonderful, on time delivery, brand new condition on each. After just a few years thousands of dollars are wasted and both my husband and I lose hours of sleep and have ongoing back soreness. Stearns & Foster Mattresses SAG and the top padding does not allow the mattress to reflect accurate measurement process the company requires to honor the warranty. Stearns & Foster should come with a 10 year supply of Biofreeze to help out with back pain. Our last mattress was returned under warranty. However it was inspected several times before they agreed it was defective. During that time period we slept in our spare room.

This mattress was very uncomfortable after 3 months. It had wells where you lay and left a hump in the middle causing you to not be able to roll over while sleeping. Pressure points on hips from hard mattress and dip that hurts neck and shoulders (from the top edge) after only 3 months. When I contacted Mattress One and informed them I found out my warranty was worthless essentially as you have to be able to see a 2.5 inch sag without touching it. You can touch it with a finger tip and see it. The sag is there but you can't see it because they have creatively engineered to top layer to be taut and stay high even though nothing is under it but air.

What a waste of $3000. I bought a S&F mattress at a dive store called Sit N Sleep 6 months ago and like other people's reviews, our King size bed developed hills and valleys - hills on the middle and sides, and valleys where we sleep. In fact the inspector came out and measured more than 2" have sunk where we sleep. Now I have to deal with S&F directly because Sit N Sleep is a joke and going out of business soon. But of course our mattress is not valid under warranty because we "didn't have a box spring" under it. I guess I should have read the entire mattress manual when I purchased it. Bye S&F. Bye SnS. Hope you both go out of business soon before other innocent people become victims of your horrible quality mattresses and customer service.

By the way, I'm convinced that all the mattresses that Sit n Sleep sells are defective - that's why the same mattress are priced lower there than higher end stores like Bloomingdale's and Macy's.

We purchased this bed (Stearns & Foster Estate Glenda King, pillow top firm mattress) brand new at Morris Home in Beavercreek, Ohio. - 2121 Harshman Road in 2013. 10 Year warranty. After 3 months of use, the bed seemed 'off.' After calling and reporting this information to Morris, we were told to wait for a call from Stearns & Foster. After getting a call back from Stearns & Foster, we were told to wait for a call back from their independent consultant in our area to schedule an appointment. It took a month after our first call to get someone to even look at our issue.

The 'indestructible' frame that was purchased with the entire bed broke. - They replaced it. The consultant took out a laser measurement tool and told us the 'dip' wasn't at a high enough percentage. (Of course the pillow top of the mattress prevented the full measurement for accuracy as it kept form.) Despite our efforts to show him as we sat on the bed, he said he was going by the 'rules.'

After 4 years of 'sleeping' (you don't tend to get a lot of sleep when you toss and turn) on a $2k mattress, my back is out of alignment and I have constant hip, neck, and shoulder pain. We've wore out our living room furniture from sleeping on it, and often times preferred the floor over this mattress. We even went to the extent to place an air mattress under the mattress to fill in the dips, long enough to fall asleep before the air mattress loses the air over the night.

We just purchased a new mattress and box springs that is memory foam and organic for $500. That is amazing. We will NEVER spend that amount of money on another bed (our very first bed purchase by the way) and will NEVER buy from Stearns & Foster again. 2/26/2017 - Upon moving the mattress out, the warranty sticker still attached.

We bought one of the most expensive S & F mattresses and within a year had slight dip in it on each side. Within two years, much larger dip. Called the store and they sent someone out. They measured and said it was 1" and could not be exchanged. A year later, called again because it was close to 1 1/2". Sent someone again and they said not enough.

Spoke to store employee and they told me to "get two 24 to 30 case of bottle water and leave them on bed as soon as you get up. Wait until they show and quickly remove and fluff cover." They said that when you get up, the memory foam comes back but quickly goes down once you lay down. By putting the bottled water on it, it keeps it down until they show. If two cases don't do it, use 3-4 cases. It works. Really frustrating when you spend $4k and the mattress is shot within a year. That's why we buy from Costco now. They take it back if unhappy.

We purchased a S&F Estate "Emily Rose King Prime" from Mattress Firm Co. on 8/22/2015 for $2351.85.

The warranty company required us to pay a $50 fee to have an "inspector" come to measure the depth of the sag... SERIOUSLY?! After waiting 3 weeks for our appointment (which was only available on a Sunday), and then waiting 2 more weeks for "processing" we were told the sag is not deep enough to qualify for a replacement... OMG! It's only been a year! How much longer do we have to suffer? What kind of company would require you to wait until your mattress sags to 1 1/2 inch and you suffer further injury before they will act?

Huge body impressions and back pain! Customer service advised the process is the same as before. We are stuck with craters in our mattress for several years until the divots meet their standards. Save yourself the time and pain, don't buy a Stearns and Foster!!!

My wife and I looked and tried many different mattress before purchasing a Stearns and Foster from Sears. Within two weeks we felt the mattress was way softer than the sample tried in the store. We talked to Sears who said if it sinks below 2 inches it might be covered. The mattress looks fine until you get in bed where you sink into a hole which is hard to roll out of. Back and neck and hip pains are the result of sleeping on a Stearns and Foster mattress which price tag exceeded $2500 dollars. Do yourself a favor and move to another manufacturer. My recommendation is not to buy Stearns and Foster.

I bought the Hannah Grace mattress at JC Penney at the Mothers' Day Sale May 2016. Once it was delivered, the latex had a super strong odor lasting for a few weeks, had to open the windows. By the 2nd week a huge sagging depression appeared. I slept alone on the mattress for 35 days before reporting, I am 5'3" and petite. I turned the mattress thinking the memory foam would rejuvenate. Wrong. Another sagging depression developed.

I submitted the warranty claim. JC Penney sent out the inspector and he measures over a 1.5 inch indentation. JC Penney is replacing the entire mattress and box spring per manufacturer defect. If it happens again with replacement, I will have to exchange for a different brand, especially reading ConsumerAffairs reviews. I am concerned that the display mattresses are a much higher quality and not the same product prepared for the customers. I am sorely disappointed in the Stearns and Fosters product. It has been a nuisance to go through the warranty process. I feel the display misrepresented the actual product. We'll see how long the new mattress lasts? I will be careful to report defects with immediacy!

When I bought a Stearns & Foster mattress in 2009, it was supposed to be a custom, pillowtop mattress (Plush on 1 side, firm on the other). Unfortunately for me, the salesman who sold it to me thought I would never know the difference (At first I didn't). It was nicer than the one I previously had until I started having back pains. When I called the salesman asking to reselect under my comfort guarantee I was told too much time had gone by, it was mine.

Years later I started working for the company I bought my mattress from. When talking to the bedding manager, I told him I had a custom bed but wasn't impressed. He looked it up to see which 1 I had, to find out I DIDN'T have a custom mattress at all. All I could say is my parents taught me to never trust a salesman.

While I was at training, a rep from Stearns and Foster asked "Who here has a Stearns and Foster sleep system?" I was the only one who raised my hand. He said "Great! How do you sleep?" I said, "I don't. But if you ask my husband he says 'it's a cloud', I say it's a brick." He said, "I knew I was opening a can of worms, but it's ok, we'll talk after class."

I explained how I had been fooled, my disappointment finding out, and now how angry I was after spending the amount of money on basically a brick. He then asked me if there was anything he could do to fix it. I told him I wasn't sure? He then offered if he could take back my mattress and exchange it for the right mattress, if it would make things right for me. I said that sounds good, but I need a custom mattress. My husband needs support and I need comfort. He said he would see what he could do to take my mattress back and depending on my selection I would have to pay the difference (I found that more than generous, seeing that he didn't have to take it back at all, it wasn't defective or broken down in any way).

Between then and now, my back couldn't take it anymore. I couldn't find the right mattress from Stearns and Foster so I bought a custom mattress from Kingsdown that I absolutely LOVE, have gotten sleep and felt great! But I still felt cheated about my Stearns and Foster. I have always heard how great it was, but unfortunately for me, I had the wrong mattress.

Well, I'm happy to say, today, I am the proud and rested owner of a Stearns and Foster Reserve mattress. I didn't want to review it right away to see how I felt on it for a while (It was expensive but worth it!). I strongly believe they had my husband and I in mind when they created this masterpiece! It is supportive enough for my husband, that's 6'4" 350lbs yet soft enough for me at 5'3" 130lbs. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH A.J. and Eric from Stearns and Foster for the teamwork in making this a reality for me. I am finally so happy about my purchase. I want the world to know how well I sleep! And I would recommend it to anyone who has back aches, discomfort, my mother, friends and family! It was worth every penny! THANK YOU.

I was having low back issues and pain and got to the point where I cannot sleep on it anymore. We paid good money for this mattress and I can't use. I called Olinde's where we bought and they sent out the tech. There was not sagging and that wasn't the reason we called but that the comfort of the mattress was gone. The tech agreed that it was collapsing and was going to make a note of it hurting my back also.

We got a call from Olinde's the next day saying that the factory was denying the claim because there was not greater than 1 1/2 inches in sagging. I explained to her that wasn't the issue and that their tech knows this. No help from them. So I called Sealy the manufacturer and told same story and basically was told it not their problem and I should have done my research. What kind of retailer and factory takes care of their customers like this, sure not these. So do yourself a favor and NEVER buy a Sealy product again. Now I am out over 42000.00 and gained back pain.

I never have written a negative review but I was compelled this time as I feel I have been wronged :) by a corporation fooling consumers by "10 year Warranty" scam. We purchased a king S&F's firm mattress with European plush top about 6 years ago from mattress warehouse without reading reviews (first mistake). Side note, both my husband and I are light weights (slim, really). So about a year after we got the mattress, we noticed the mattress sagging on each side, quite early we thought. So, first thought was keep rotating and rotating. Husband started complaining about his back and shoulder and I, too was waking up with ache and pains. I unfortunately lived with this nuisance and kept talking about getting a new mattress.

Long story short after period of procrastination I filed a warranty complaint and after several hiccups and getting complaints dismissed I finally got an inspector. This third party inspector immediately admitted the visible sagging and stated this is not normal wear and tear and this type of sagging is usually because product is a lemon. After waiting for weeks and several follow ups and no response I get the letter from the retailer that per the report there were no warrantable defects, and list of BS points like normal body impressions not covered. Apparently our report didn't show the "warrantable 1.5" sag". Of course I never saw the report to be able to dispute it, but I know for sure as I have had several mattresses in my lifetime and this sagging is not "NORMAL".

I am so angry and so upset that I feel I have been taken advantage of by this company hiding behind their so-called "warranty guideline" language trying to do anything but satisfy their customers. A mattress purchase is not a small purchase and something you'd expect to do every few years, it is an investment. I will be telling all my friends and family about my experience on Twitter and Facebook and in person about Sealy and their lack of customer service as much as I can as if this is against my principal to allow a corporation cheat their customers this boldly.

I am not accustomed to writing a negative review, especially after reading so many reviews that are positive; but please beware because you too could experience the same circumstances that we are currently experiencing. Unfortunately our experience with the Dartford Ultra Firm Mattress Set is not so positive; perhaps it is possible that we received a “substandard set”. At any rate, my husband and I saved and planned for this very expensive purchase for our retirement comfort and because we wanted a very high quality mattress. Additionally, before we made the decision we read numerous reviews, and we were convinced that this Stearns & Foster mattress would be the best for us. Well we’ve had our set for a little over one year and we have rotated it approximately twelve times just to keep it balanced, and still it has sags and there is a very conspicuous ridge in the middle of it.

We were informed that Macys has a very strong Customer Service satisfaction rate, so we contacted Macy’s regarding our experience and they advised us that an inspector would evaluate our concern and provide feedback to them. As we assumed it would be, the evaluation was not to our advantage. So it appears that the purchase that we thought would be very satisfactory especially given the reputation of Macys and Stearns & Foster, did not provide us with the value, quality and comfort that we expected Macys to stand behind. I would advise everyone to think twice about purchasing a mattress at this price point from Macys.

I honestly can't believe how awful this mattress is, and I've purchased quite a few over the years. Like many before, I got this one from Art Van because they've always made the process easy, and have a good selection. I went through their mattress match-making system and really took my time selecting. I thought I made a good choice, and was very happy with it at first. Within a year, we both could feel a definite sag in the middle, developed worsening back and hip pain, waking constantly.

I called Art Van and they courteously sent a service rep out to "measure" by stringing a line across the top with weights on both ends. To meet the requirement for "failure" I learned that a mattress has to have a 1 1/2 inch measurable sag. The problem with this is that the plush top mattress can still have the foam and cushion stay "up" while the firm foundation under it has clearly weakened. Mine "measured" about 1 1/4 inches so it appears I'm out of luck. I sure wish I would have looked for reviews because it certainly is easy to find people who have had the same terrible experience.

I've read the negative reviews about Stearns & Foster and agree with every one of them. My king mattress is a Queens Gate ultra firm, is five years old and is defective in the center. Of course the fine print in the "warranty" specifies the inches that it has to sag and says I'd have to pay for inspection and transportation. I couldn't figure out why my back and hip (I'm a side sleeper) were hurting and waking me up at night. Then I felt the center of the mattress, which is where I was sleeping, in a moment of revelation. And although you can't see a sag in the middle, you can feel the difference between that area and the parts of the mattress that would be the twin size areas. It's insidious and of course gives the manufacturer an out from giving me any consideration. So I'm sleeping on one side of the mattress, which will also obviously degenerate.

I'll never again buy this brand. I tried to call their customer service number, and was told via recording it'll be closed due to "unforeseen circumstances" and they don't know when it'll open. Lovely. Whatever happened to pride of manufactured product, or customer satisfaction? I'm not even trying to deal with Sears, which is not much better.

So we received our 4th replacement from Stearns and Foster and decided to switch the type of bed all together. Sears was great to work with, they even credited us $890 on the difference of the upgrade so we paid an additional $300 to go with the lux estate ultra plush hybrid bed. This bed is soft as expected unless our other plush beds that were delivered were hard and felt cheap and the knobs were laying on top of the mattress instead pulled down. The adjustable base sometimes goes down on it own and smells weird still after 3 months. Smells like hay is the only way I can describe it. But I would recommend the lux estate hybrid ultra plush bed if you are looking for the softest bed!

Original Review: Jan. 13, 2016

After a nightmare experience with Sleep Number we canceled our order and decided to go to Sears to purchase the highest quality plush bed that they had. I have bulging disc and arthritis and need a plush bed. We decided to go with the Stearns & Foster Lux estate plush bed. The bed cost $4200 on sale with the adjustable base. When we received the first bed it was hard as a rock literally, not plush at all, Sears looked in their system and found that it looked that we received a firm bed by the bed order. So a second bed was ordered, the second bed was softer and we were happy with it but it had a rip in it and those supposedly luxurious French tiedowns were poking us in the back as they are just sitting on top of the mattress and not pull down as it appears on their advertisements or the bed in the store.

So we had to receive a third bed because of warranty would be no good with the rip in it. We receive the third bed five days ago and this bed is as hard as the first bed. The other issue is that these French tiedowns are all just sitting on top of the mattress. I have included a picture for you to see, how could it be comfortable that these bowls with plastic it on our on top of your mattress when you lay on it and you can feel them through the sheets? My final thoughts on Stearns & Foster is they make subpar beds and have low quality control. If we could do it over again without it costing us more money we would not purchase a Stearns & Foster.

It was firm to my satisfaction when tested on the showroom floor, so I purchased it believing I was going to receive a very firm, high quality bed set when delivered..

Shortly after delivery, the bed dramatically lost its firmness night after night. The normal body indentations you were to expect I read about on the Stearns and Foster website that were surpassed in the first two months.

Updated 12/16/2015 - I purchased a queen Stearns & Foster bed set, and after only a couple of months with just myself sleeping on it, the bed began to sag uncomfortably. But not to the satisfaction of the warranty requirements when measured by an individual Sealy sent out to my house to measure the bed in a place on the bed where it is impossible to sleep. Plus it was measured many hours after I had awaken and was off the bed, whereas any indentation that was there had risen to a perceived normal level. Customer service was unprofessional and unsympathetic when dealing with me and my concerns regarding the purchase of their product and the questioning of their warranty evaluation methods. If you are considering purchasing a Stearns & Foster bed, do your homework by reading the many reviews on the net, test many beds and research the ones you test. Good luck and happy shopping.

I bought a Stearns and Foster Firm Luxury Mattress in March of 2014. I thought I was buying comfort, boy was I wrong. When waking up in morning, we find that our hips are extremely painful (we are both side sleepers). We also find that we roll to the center of bed. I called Ashleys (that's where I bought it from) with my problem. Appointment was made and craftsmen came out. He said that I did not have a depression of 1 1/2 inches and that there was nothing they could do. I said what about my warranty, he said I did not fall in the guidelines. I bought a firm bed not rock hard. So I'm stuck with a product that I cannot use without waking up in pain.

Paid over $2600 for a king-size Stearns & Foster mattress at Sleepy's. Came with a 10 year guarantee. After 2 years, terrible indentation on both sides where we sleep. After trying to use kit they send from Marshall Mattress and downloading pics, could not do. I am a senior and this was very difficult. Called and asked for representative to come do. After much begging, pleading and screaming they sent rep.

Received a call from Sleepy's only 3 days after this (before rep came) and they told me claim denied and mattress satisfactory. I could not believe my ears. When I said, "Oh really? They haven't even been here yet." Person on phone was speechless. After rep came and actually said to me, "THIS MATTRESS IS HORRIBLE" I got a call days later from Sleepy's telling me depression in worst spot was 1" and warranty Stearns and Foster puts out, depression must be 1 1/2". I told rep, "I am going to chiropractor regularly and what am I supposed to do???" She answered me stating I should call back in January and maybe sinkhole will reach 1 1/2." I
