2022 Top Mattresses

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over your regular mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.

Pillow-top mattresses have passionate supporters and skeptics alike. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

This mattress’s comfort level is right in the sweet spot for most sleepers. It’s soft and supportive enough to support heavier people, without being too hard.

Its layers are carefully engineered with care, including the breathable and cooling AIRGOCELL foam that prevents heat from building up in your bed. This keeps you comfortable and cool during the night.

This is a pillow-top mattress that is a great choice for side sleepers and those who weigh under 130 pounds. Pillow-tops provide a luxuriously plush feeling when you lie on them, and they conform to your body. However, they may compress around the edges if you are a heavy sleeper or someone who prefers a firmer mattress. This could reduce the overall usable surface area of your mattress. Luckily, this mattress avoids that problem by having a tight top with strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress is a major investment that should last for many years. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable throughout the day.

Pillow top mattresses may have a shorter life span than other mattress types. This is especially true if you sleep a lot. The thick layer can compress over time causing sagging. The material of the foam (fiberfill, memory foam or latex) can also affect durability. High-quality foams like latex and organic cotton are more durable than polyester and polyurethane.

If you’re looking for a mattress that will last longer, look for hybrids with steel coils. They are more resilient than foam models and can support people who weigh more. You can even flip them to extend their lifespan. (Most pillow-top mattresses aren’t designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)

Warranty

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies offer a warranty for their products. The terms and conditions can vary from brand to brand. Some warranties cover only certain issues or require additional fees like return shipping.

When shopping for a bed, a good mattress warranty is a must. The warranty should offer clear terms, including the length of coverage and any actions that can void the warranty. The warranty should also state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.

Avocado, for instance, offers a limited warranty of 25 years on its mattresses. This includes a full coverage for the initial ten years and then a prorated coverage for remainder of warranty period. The warranty should state whether or not it covers the costs of returning or repairing the bed.

Value

Our former sleep ecommerce editor keeps up with all the latest in mattresses and bedding, and isn’t afraid to pay a bit more for better comfort or durability. She also loves the versatility of this mattress, which can be flipped to have softer or harder sides.

Allswell is Walmart’s mattress in a box line. It was launched in 2017. This model, aptly named the Luxe Hybrid, features two layers of individually wrapped coils and foam of different density levels. It also has a memory foam layer with copper-gel infusion, which helps regulate temperature.

The Allswell comes in queen, California king, and king sizes. The company often offers sales on the Allswell model. It is also very affordable. It has a generous, risk-free trial of up to one year and a lifetime warranty. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
