Augustine Pillow Top Mattress

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-tops mattresses are a controversial product that has both passionate supporters and skeptics. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

The comfort level of this mattress is ideal for most sleepers. It is soft enough to support heavy people and cradle their bodies without being too firm or causing backache.

The layers of the bed are carefully designed, including the breathable AIRGOCELL cooling foam that prevents heat buildup in your mattress. 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 create a luxuriously plush feel when you lie down, and they contour closely 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.

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 can have a shorter lifespan than other mattress types, particularly if you’re a heavy sleeper. The thick layer of foam can become compressed over time and cause sagging. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). 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’re bouncier than all-foam models and can support heavier people. You can flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (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 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. 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.

A good warranty on a mattress should be considered when purchasing a new bed. The warranty should offer clear terms, including the length of coverage and any actions that can void the warranty. The warranty should also specify what is offered as a resolution when a problem arises.

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.

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, appropriately named the Luxe Hybrid features two layers of individually-wrapped coils and foam with different densities. It also features a copper gel-infused memory-foam layer that helps regulate the 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. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
