Bamboo Pillow Top Mattress Topper

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 mattress enthusiasts and skeptics are divided. They offer a comfortable sleep surface, but wear out more quickly than models that don’t have 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 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 is a pillow top mattress that is great for side sleepers, and people who weigh under 130 lbs. Pillow-tops create a luxuriously plush feel when you lie down, and they contour closely to your body. However, they may compress around the edges if you are a heavy sleeper or someone who prefers a firmer mattress. This could reduce your mattress’s overall surface area. Luckily, this mattress avoids that problem by having a tight top with strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for years. 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. 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.

If you’re looking for a mattress that will last longer, look for hybrids with steel coils. They are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. 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.)

Warranty

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. The warranty also covers the cost for 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 may cover only certain issues and require additional fees, such as return shipping charges.

When shopping for a bed, a good mattress warranty is a must. The warranty should offer clear terms, including the length of coverage and any actions that can void the warranty. 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 full coverage for the first ten years, followed by prorated limited coverage for the rest of the warranty period. A warranty should also state whether it covers all or some of the costs associated with returning or repairing the 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 loves that this mattress can be flipped over to get softer or firmer side.

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 has a copper-gel-infused memory foam layer, which helps to regulate temperature.

The Allswell is available in queen, king and California king sizes. It’s also very affordable, and the company frequently offers sales on this model. It has a generous, risk-free trial of up to one year and a lifetime warranty. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
