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 provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

This mattress’s comfort level is right in the sweet spot for most sleepers. 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 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 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 a major investment that should last for many 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. 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 flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (Most pillow top mattresses aren’t meant to be flipped. But rotating them can increase comfort and lengthen their lifespan.

The Right to Rent

A mattress warranty is a guarantee from the manufacturer that protects consumers in case of defects. It also covers the cost of repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies offer a warranty for their products. 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 offer clear terms, including the length of coverage and any actions that can void the warranty. The warranty should state how to resolve a problem.

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 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’s also a fan of the versatility this mattress offers, as it’s able to be flipped for softer or firmer sides.

Allswell, Walmart’s mattress line in a box, 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 comes in queen, California king, and king sizes. The company often offers sales on the Allswell model. It is also very affordable. It comes with a generous risk-free trial period of up to a year and is backed by a lifetime warranty. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
