Stearns And Foster Mattress Review

Like any other manufacturer, Stearns and Foster also keep changing the names of its collection on a regular basis. It’s not the only manufacturer to do that. Many change the name of a specific product without changing its constituents. The idea here is to have an increased collection of names for specific stores. That adds to the confusion of the buyer who isn’t able to distinguish one from the other. Though both might have the same materials inside, the names are different. If you are doing a review of Stearns and Foster, it will be desirable to remain concentrated on the fundamentals of the mattress i.e. its constituents or what goes into making that and avoid getting distracted by fancy names given to collections on display.

A Stearns and Foster mattress is rated among the best in the market. But with more than a thousand mattresses available, it gets too much for an average buyer to make the right choice and buy a mattress that offers value for money. That’s why it is important to know what goes into the making of a good mattress.

A mattress set has four components. These are: a boxspring, and the mattress that consists of Mattress Style, Comfort layers and Core Support.

First of all we have the mattress style. Fabric is the first visible thing that covers it. It may be silk, polyester, cashmere and alpaca or another material. The cost of the mattress varies with the material used. You should rationalize your requirements and decide exactly what is best suited to your requirements and budget. Don’t get carried away by the talk of the salesman. You should know that polyester will last as long as any other expensive fabric.

The main factor that decides the style is what kind of comfort surface has been attached to it. Here there are five kinds of finishes: Tight Top, Pillow Top, Euro Pillow Top, Euro Top and Box Top. The Tight Top is just a plain bed mattress. A Pillow Top is an additional layer of comfort material that is attached and has gusseted corners. It gives the appearance of a flat large pillow having been placed on the top. A Euro Pillow Top comes with more comfortable materials. A Euro Top has the same amount of comfort material but is directly attached. It gives the looks of a thin mattress that has been kept on top of the bed mattress. And, The Box top is the same as the Euro Top but is provided with additional comfort materials.

All these kinds of tops are popular, but you need to consider two factors:

1) they add to the final cost and

2) It is certain that the top will be the first part to wear off of any mattress. As they are directly attached you won’t any choice but to replace the whole mattress.

The most economical way to have a prolonged life of the mattress is to have a Tight Top and buy an additional Top of the kind of the Tempurpedic mattress topper that has memory foam. You may be aware that a memory foam mattress has certain distinct constructional features that go to provide increased comfort and support to the body of the user.

And last but not the least is the Core Support arrangement that comprises of innerspring and other items. There is no doubt that S and F provides the best innersprings that have withstood the test of time.

Finally we come to the boxspring. S & F strongly recommends its customers to have a new boxspring with the mattress. It maintains that a boxspring provides additional support that prolongs the life of a mattress. But there are others who argue that when S&F claims to offer the best available mattress that is more than 12” thick and has excellent quality coil springs, it should certainly be capable of giving all the needed support.

Let’s face the facts. Any company would like to generate more revenue, and boxspring helps in that direction. If you are a devoted to the brand, go ahead. Else, keep in mind the savings you are making by avoiding it.

This preview of a Stearns and Foster mattress should prove to be helpful to all those with plans for buying this product. The products of this company are of excellent quality, but it is good to understand what one should look for while buying such a product and possibly save some money in the process and then decide how good your judgment was!
