Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your mattress. It has a luxurious appearance and is hygienic.

Pillow-top mattress enthusiasts and skeptics are divided. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

This mattress’ comfort level is perfect for most people. It’s soft enough to cradle the body and support heavier people without being too hard or causing back pain.

Its layers have been carefully engineered, including the breathable AIRGOCELL Foam that prevents heat building up in your bedroom. This also keeps you from getting too hot during the night so that you can enjoy a comfortable and restful night of sleep.

This is a pillow top mattress that is great for side sleepers, and people who weigh under 130 lbs. Pillow-tops are luxuriously plush and contour to your body when you lie down. If you are a heavy-sleeper or prefer a firmer bed, they can compress around the edges. This could reduce the total surface area of your bed. This mattress has a tight-top with strong edge supports, which helps to avoid that problem.

Durability

A mattress will be one of your biggest purchases, and you want it to last. A good mattress will help you to feel rested throughout the day. You spend a third of your time in bed.

Pillow-top mattresses can last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are a heavy sleeper. The thick layer of foam can become compressed over time and cause sagging. The material of the foam (fiberfill, memory foam or latex) can also affect durability. Foams made from organic cotton and latex are more durable than polyurethane and polyester.

Look for hybrid mattresses with steel coils if you want a mattress to last longer. They are more resilient than foam models and can support people who weigh more. You can even flip them to extend their lifespan. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)

You can also get a warranty

A mattress warranty is a guarantee from the manufacturer that protects consumers in case of 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 may cover only certain issues and require additional fees, such as return shipping charges.

A good mattress warranty should be a key consideration when shopping for a new bed. The warranty should include clear terms, such as the length of the coverage and any actions which can void the guarantee. The warranty should also state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.

For example, Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty 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 is available in queen, king and California king sizes. It is also very inexpensive, and the company offers frequent sales on this model. It comes with a generous risk-free trial period of up to a year and is backed by a lifetime warranty. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
