What People Are Saying

The Lux Estate Hybrid Collection is one of the most popular from the Stearns & Foster lineup of mattresses and it does represent the largest investment in your sleep. These mattresses are designed to offer luxury craftsmanship and one-of-a-kind devotion to creating a product that will last for years to come. They are also called the Pollock line of mattresses.

Let’s take a look at what customers had to say about the versions available.

Lux Estate Hybrid Cushion Firm

Let’s take a peek at what people had to say about the cushion firm version of this mattress, which is typically loved by back sleepers who need a bit more support for their backs when they sleep.

Matt on said-

“Quality mattress at a reasonable price. The mattress is a bit firm which I like, but at the same time it is supportive and it conforms well to your body. I weigh about 180 and am a side or stomach sleeper. I’m not sure how this would be for a back sleeper. I do recommend this mattress.”

Jessica also reviewed on and said-

“Love it. I would recommend this product I can not however find the manufacturer with the date.”

John on that same site said-

“I love it! It was my first online mattress purchase and I am pleased!”

JM on Stearns & Foster said-

“Great mattress. We really like our new mattress!!! Didn't realize until we got this one how our previous one lacked the support and comfort the S&F one provides. We used Consumer Reports for their ratings of mattresses and they were right on target.”

Diane on Stearns & Foster said-

“Fantastic Mattress. In need of a new mattress, we returned to the Stearns and Foster brand, having owned two in the past, since we knew they were a quality company. We decided to go from a queen to a king mattress and did a lot of testing of different models (including a few not in the Stearns and Foster family). We decided to go with a hybrid and after trying this model in the store, we believed we found the perfect mattress. It was more than we planned to pay, but decided that if it gave us a good night sleep, it would be worth it. Now, after having it over two months, I can confirm that we made the right choice. It gives excellent support and is comfortable from the moment I get into bed until the moment I get up. I love that it is a smooth top (without the indentations the other models had). Being a king-size mattress, I don't notice any movement from my husband if he turns over, nor do I worry about waking him if I move around in bed. It is just the perfect softness and firmness, and I couldn't imagine having a more comfortable bed. 100% happy!”


“Holy Cow!!! This is amazing! The price point scared us a bit but after taking the leap and buying our mattress we are sleeping SO MUCH BETTER! I would highly recommend [it]!”

Harley on S&F reviewed with-

“Quality mattress. Awesome mattress for any type of sleeper.”

JJB on S&F said-

“Plush firmness is great! This mattress is very comfortable. It is firm but not hard. Does not transfer movement from one person to the other. Very well made. The only complaint is that it is VERY heavy! This means that to lift the corner to tuck in the sheet is nearly impossible Takes getting used to.”

Sleepy Steve on S&F said-

“Quality product. Best mattress we have ever slept on. Getting the best sleep we have experienced in years.”

Sleeping Great said there-

“A well-made product. I used to get out of bed with a sore back. Not anymore. The mattress is very comfortable and with great support.”

Joe said-

“Great mattress! Love the comfort! No backaches ever!”

Rested from Buffalo, NY said on S&F- 

“Very nice. I have never slept better. I used to wake up a lot with my old mattress. I sleep through the night now. Couldn't be happier.”

Phil on S&F said-

“365 good nights so far. Very comfortable bed. We've had it for a year now. Enjoying the perfect firmness.”

Rested on S&F said-

“So comfortable. It is so wonderful to have a bed that I look forward to climbing into at night. I lay down and I am instantly relaxed. I now have less tossing or turning during the night and never feel my husband moving around anymore either. Thank you for a good night’s rest.”

And lastly, Happy Sandy reviewed the mattresses on S&F and said-

“Nice and comfortable 👍👍🤗 Wonderful mattress. Finally going to sleep comfortably tonight.”

Now, let’s look at what people said about the Luxury Plush version of the mattress.

Lux Estate Hybrid Plush

The Plush is a step up from the firm in that “sink in” feeling and is typically preferred by those who sleep on their sides and need that extra bit of give so that there are no pressure points. 

Very happy sleeper on Stearns & Foster said-

“Most comfortable bed I've ever had. I own another Sterns & Foster (estate firm with pillow top). We got it more for my husband’s back and he loves it. It's good for me. Recently, I have to work in another city 5 days a week and recently purchased this bed (hybrid luxury plush). This bed was made for my body. I slept through the entire night the first night and didn't wake up once with my side hurting which is what happens with the other mattress (my husband loves the other mattress because he's a back sleeper with back issues). This bed (hybrid plush) is for side sleepers like me but I also sleep on my back and it worked for that too. I'm not a stomach sleeper so I can't speak to that. I can speak to the craftsmanship of this bed. I'm so impressed with this company. I've told everyone I can about their mattresses. High quality for sure. I'm a forever customer. My only worry is I'll be in the same city with my husband again one day and we will have to discuss which mattress we will be sleeping on lol.”


Happy couple on Stearns & Foster said-

“Love It! Nothing compares! This mattress is just the right combination of firm and plush. My husband really likes a firm mattress and I like the softer mattresses. This has been the best mattress we have owned in our entire marriage. Meets both of our needs and I sleep soundly every night.”

Comfy at Last on S&F said-

“Best Mattress Ever for Couples. [...M]y review is 100% honest and my own opinion. I had another name-brand mattress for the last several years, but when I had the opportunity to try this Stearns & Foster mattress, I jumped at the chance. After chatting with the company, I chose the luxury plush mattress and couldn't be happier! This bed is the perfect compromise for couples who are divided between firm and plush. Both my husband and I are super comfy and he no longer wakes up with back pain, which was a daily occurrence. My FAVORITE part about this mattress is that when one of us rolls over in the middle of the night, the mattress doesn't bounce, jiggle or disturb the other person! I literally haven't slept this good in years.”

SG from Fort Worth, TX said on S&F-

“Amazing Comfort. We were gifted this mattress and I have to say, it is the real deal and we couldn't be happier. The memory foam is super plush and doesn't get unbearably hot like others I have slept on. Definitely a game-changer.”

Chrissy M. on S&F said-

“I recommend this mattress for everyone! I have had bad lower back problems for years and realized our old mattress was only making them so much worse. After I had a pinched nerve I decided it was time for us to switch to the Luxury Plush Lux Estate mattress - I noticed a difference in pain within a few weeks. I felt more supported when I slept on my side and my back. I love that it is firm enough to give great support, while still feeling super comfortable and plush. I wake up feeling less sore and don't toss and turn like I used to. I highly recommend this mattress and have been so happy with the construction quality of Stearns and Foster product.”

Elated Dreamer on S&F said-

“Perfection. After [an] extensive review of the latest stuff, you can get on the web that's crammed into a box then blossoms when you lay it out while opening windows to get rid of the odor I decided to visit my local brick and mortar to actually lay on some beds before making my purchase. I checked out the high-end selections from all the major manufacturers and kept on coming back to the Hybrid Pollock Luxury Plush. Coincidentally the salesperson had a sheet on it because he intends to purchase it as a floor model when available. He had very good reason for doing so. This is the most incredibly constructed piece of sleep material I've ever encountered in my long life. No other mattress I have owned has ever come close. The support and comfort that the Pollock provides is incredible, indescribable. It represents the latest sleep technology in the hands of old world master craftsmanship. Highly recommended.”

Ellen S. on S&F said-

“I could not be happier with this mattress. Thank goodness for this mattress I finally have been getting a good night's sleep. This hybrid has just the right amount of body contouring, plushness, and support. I can sleep in comfort in just about any position and I love that it doesn't transfer motion so I am not being awoken at night by my husband's movement. The quilting on top is so soft and luxurious and the velvet trip makes this mattress look as amazing as it feels!”

A top review on said-

“Cradles Your Body. This Stearns and Foster mattress is a well made, substantial addition to our home. It replaces a Beautyrest that did not make it quite 10 years. I slept on this for about three months before writing this. Initially, the conforming nature of the top layer of gel (or foam) was disconcerting. Your body weight makes you sink down and when you want to roll over you have to kind of dig out of a hole. So it took a while to get used to this. Now that I have, I don’t think I can go back to a regular innerspring mattress. I can actually sleep on my bad back again!”

Lastly, Bob on reviewed with-

“Comfort and Support. The bed has the comfort of a Tempur-Pedic with the support of a good spring mattress. We are both sleeping better than the Tempur-Pedic we just replaced. Our lower backs are both considerably better. At the 20 day mark, we both enjoy this Stearns and Foster mattress.”

The luxury plush is certainly a well-loved mattress by those who do choose to invest in it. If you’re looking for an excellent mattress for a side sleeper or someone who likes a more plush sleeping surface, this is a great choice. If you want an even plusher bed and a bit of added elegance, check out the next mattress.

Lux Estate Hybrid Ultra Plush

By the favorite among customers in this collection is the Plush Pillowtop. Customers have left some incredible comments on this bed. Let’s take a peek.

Well Rested on Stearns & Foster said-

“Best Nights Sleep. We were gifted the Lux Estate Polluck Stearns And Foster mattress and it's had a wonderful impact on our rest! We're in our 40s and have had some hip and neck pain on our old mattress. This Luxury Ultra Plush is the perfect mix of firm and softness for a relaxing night’s sleep. We're definitely enjoying the quality and beauty of our new mattress! Hopefully, we can get our kids one as well.”

CJ36 reviewed the mattress on Macy's and said-

“Another Stearns and Foster for the win. We have a Stearns and Foster mattress that we have had for 6 years that we really like but it's only a queen. We just bought a new house and finally have enough room for a king-size bed plus with having a baby on the way we decided to upgrade. We looked and tried a few different mattresses brands but in the end, we kept coming back to this Stearns and Foster. So glad we did. We've had the bed for almost a month and I haven't slept this good in years. My wife and I are both hot sleepers plus our dog likes to sleep cuddled up on me most nights so normally I'm hot and uncomfortable during the night. With this bed, I stay relatively cool even with a 70-pound furnace of a dog sleeping up against me so the cooling feature is definitely working. Also being a hybrid it has the best of both worlds with the pillow top being infused with memory foam so it’s really soft but offers plenty of support. If this one holds up as well as our queen has(its now our quest bed) it will be well worth the money.”

Stephanie on said-

“Sleeping like a Princess. I'm a picky sleeper. I notoriously don't sleep well at home and when we went mattress shopping my partner and I don't always see eye to eye. This is the best mattress we've ever slept on! It's cushiony but firm and supportive, snuggly but breathable, and not overly hot. It's a five-star hotel bed experience every night! 12/10 would recommend. The pockets are deep 16 inches. Definitely consider that when getting sheets/bedding.”

Kris on Macy's said-

“Comfy Mattress. Wonderful mattress. We had a great night’s sleep the very first night. It has a little cushion for softness with firmness underneath. Perfect combo for us. We are both side sleepers and this mattress if very comfy for side sleepers. Great mattress.”

JC on Macy's also reviewed the mattress-

“Pure Heaven. I replace a [mattress]. This mattress is pure heaven. It has more of the softness that my soft [mattress] lacked with the same support. Now let’s see if it lasts.”

Patti on said-

“Just what I expected! Greatness! Love this mattress. My last one was a pillow top, I tried a full memory foam with no pillow top but was disappointed. If you're used to a pillow top, don't let anyone sway you to change! You won't be happy.”

Todd also on said-

“My life just changed for the best! The best mattress I have ever slept on! 100% satisfied with my purchase and the white-glove service to deliver it to my home.”

Allison on said-

“Most amazing mattress ever! The best sleep I've ever had! I find myself waking up hours before my alarm feeling fully refreshed.”

Aaron on said-

“Great. Great mattress, extremely heavy, little firmer than it had felt at the stores but I believe it’ll break-in.”

Daovone on said-

“I love my new mattress! I have my Hybrid Pollock on an adjustable base and it is fabulous!”

David on said-

“Comfortable bed. Worth the price.” 

Lori, Nancy, Rob, Michael and Kristy, and Jodi on all agreed that they would buy the mattress again, saying that it was very comfortable, unbelievably comfortable. Ida on said that it “is a great mattress, very good quality.” 

This mattress is certainly a very plush mattress that is most likely suited for side and combination sleepers who need that large amount of give to keep pressure points, areas like the shoulders and hips, to a minimum. 

Final Thoughts

We love this mattress as a high-quality hybrid option from the Stearns & Foster line and think it was a wise choice on their part to produce this high-end mattress in three different comfort levels so that no matter how you sleep, you’ll have the support and comfort you need.

If you’re considering a luxury mattress as a back, stomach, or side sleeper, the Pollock Collection has something for you. We personally feel that the ultra-plush is an excellent choice for side sleepers looking to sleep on a cloud. We highly recommend all versions of this mattress as a high-quality, large-investment model from the entire Stearns & Foster line.
