Augustus Pillow Top Mattress

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.

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.

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 have been carefully engineered, including the breathable AIRGOCELL Foam that prevents heat building up in your bedroom. This keeps you comfortable and cool during the night.

This is a pillow top mattress that is great for side sleepers, and people who weigh under 130 lbs. 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. This mattress has a tight-top with strong edge supports, which helps to avoid that problem.

Durability

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 have a shorter lifespan than other mattress types, particularly if you’re a heavy sleeper. 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). Foams made from organic cotton and latex are more durable than polyurethane and polyester.

If you are looking for a mattress with a longer lifespan, then look for hybrids that have steel coils. They are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. 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 from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable businesses offer a product warranty. The terms and conditions can vary from brand to brand. Some warranties may only cover certain issues, and some may require additional fees such as shipping charges.

A good mattress warranty should be a key consideration when shopping for a new bed. 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 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 writer is always on the lookout for the latest in bedding and mattresses, and she’s not afraid to pay more if it means 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.

The Allswell brand is Walmart’s mattress-in-a-box line, which launched in 2017. This model, appropriately named the Luxe Hybrid features two layers of individually-wrapped coils and foam with different densities. 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 is also very inexpensive, and the company offers frequent sales on this model. 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.
