Stearns & Foster or Simmons Beautyrest – The Mattress Expert Speaks

Hi pete. I am debating between sf estate shantel and beautyrest brathwaite in firm models.
I am 150 pounds and sleep on stomach and side. I read many negative reviews about sf, also about not having enought coils. Pls recommend and help

Although the Stearns & Foster Estate Shantel is rated 3 stars in our Mid-Market mattress reviews section, it remains a viable option for many reasons. Our choice would be the Simmons Beautyrest Brathwaite, but if price is an issue, the Stearns and Foster offers a great sleep solution for most buyers and at better “value.” – Editor

Hi Greg,
Most complaints are about mattresses that are too soft, and about pillowtops.
The upper layers of padding are what lose their shape so quickly. Rarely is it the coil system. S&F has plenty of coils.
As a stomach sleeper, you should be looking for something on the firmer side, anyway.
If choosing a Simmons, be sure to get one that is designated as being “plush/firm”.
If going with a S&F, stay with the “luxury firm”. In either case, avoid the pillowtop models.

Thanks, Pete
