Are Pillow Top Mattresses Better

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular mattress. It has a luxurious appearance and is hygienic.

Pillow-top mattress enthusiasts and skeptics are divided. They offer a plush sleeping surface, but they tend to wear out quicker than models without pillow-tops.

Comfort

The comfort level of this mattress is ideal 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 also keeps you from getting too hot during the night so that you can enjoy a comfortable and restful night of sleep.

This pillow-top mattress is perfect for side sleepers or those who weigh less than 130 pounds. Pillow-tops are luxuriously plush and contour to your body when you lie down. 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. This mattress is able to avoid this problem because it has a tight top and strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress will be one of your biggest purchases, and you want it to last. You spend about a third of your life in bed, and a good mattress can help you feel well-rested 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 of soft foam can compress over time, leading to sagging and an unpleasant feeling. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). High-quality foams like latex and organic cotton are more durable than polyester and polyurethane.

Look for hybrid mattresses with steel coils if you want a mattress to last longer. They’re bouncier than all-foam models and can support heavier people. You can even turn them to extend their life. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)

The Right to Rent

A mattress warranty is an assurance from the manufacturer to protect consumers in case there are any defects. It also covers the cost of repairs or replacements. Most reputable businesses offer a product warranty. 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 also specify whether it covers the cost of returning or repairing a mattress.

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’s also a fan of the versatility this mattress offers, as it’s able to be flipped for softer or firmer sides.

Allswell, Walmart’s mattress line in a box, 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 also available in California king size, queen and king. It’s also very affordable, and the company frequently offers 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.
