Top Mattress Review
Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.
Pillow-tops mattresses are a controversial product that has both passionate supporters and skeptics. They offer a plush sleeping surface, but they tend to wear out quicker than models without pillow-tops.
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.
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 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. They may compress around their edges if they are used by heavy sleepers or people who prefer 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.
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 can compress over time causing 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.
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.)
A mattress warranty is an assurance from the manufacturer to protect consumers in case there are any defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies offer a warranty for their products. 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 state how to resolve a problem.
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. A warranty should also state whether it covers all or some of the costs associated with returning or repairing the 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, 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 comes with an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
