Top Mattress Review
Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over your regular mattress. It has a luxurious appearance and is hygienic.
Pillow-top mattresses have passionate supporters and skeptics alike. They offer a comfortable sleep surface, but wear out more quickly than models that don’t have pillow tops.
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 will also keep you from getting too warm during the night, so you can enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep.
This pillow-top mattress is perfect for side sleepers or those who weigh less than 130 pounds. Pillow-tops provide a luxuriously plush feeling when you lie on them, and they conform to your body. They may compress around their edges if they are used by heavy sleepers or people who prefer 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.
A mattress is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for years. 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 can compress over time causing sagging. 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 pillow-top mattresses aren’t designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)
You can also get a warranty
A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies provide a warranty on their products. However, the terms and conditions of a warranty can vary from one brand to another. 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 be clear, including the duration of coverage and actions that could void it. The warranty should also state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.
Avocado, for example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their mattresses. This includes full coverage for the first ten years, followed by prorated limited coverage for the rest of the warranty period. The warranty should also specify whether it covers the cost of returning or repairing a mattress.
Our former sleep editor is always up to date on the latest mattress and bedding trends. She’s also not afraid to spend a little more for better quality or comfort. She loves that this mattress can be flipped over to get softer or firmer side.
The Allswell brand is Walmart’s mattress-in-a-box line, which 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. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
