Seriously? ... I know S&F is a part of Sealy. I'm would imagine most like myself go to www.sealy.com to easily find Stearns and Foster as one of their product.
Per Sealy's webstie, they have Posturepedics starting at $599 queen set. S&F's start at $1,299 queen set. Whoever wants a $599 Posturepedic set, knock yourself out. Maybe you can proclaim it to be just like an S&F.
My point above was only 20% of Sealy's techs are certified to make the S&F mattresses in Sealy factories (we have one in 25 miles N. in Richmond, CA).
Also, every Stearns and Foster has individual coils, and the newer lines have the intellicoils.
Most Posturepedics on floors to date do not even have individual coils. There is a whole truckload of 'Posturepedic' Sealy mattresses with wide variety of coils, materials and cover fabrics and some of them are over $1600 for a Queen.
It's rather silly to say a Stearns and Foster is just a glorified Posturepedic. Gurantee you an entry level S&F at Sears Roebuck ($1k twin set) blows away an entry level Posturepedic (<$500 twin set) with SS coils and some cheesy fabric cover. I'm seen them both a few times.
