Top Mattress Review
Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your mattress. It gives a luxurious feel 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.
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.
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 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 the total surface area of your bed. 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. 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 soft foam can compress over time, leading to sagging and an unpleasant feeling. 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.
Look for hybrid mattresses with steel coils if you want a mattress to last longer. They are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. You can even flip them to extend their lifespan. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)
You can also get a warranty
A mattress warranty is a guarantee from the manufacturer that protects consumers in case of defects. The warranty also covers the cost for repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies provide a warranty on their products. However, the warranty terms and conditions may vary from one brand or manufacturer to another. 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 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 full coverage during the first ten-year period, followed by a prorated limited warranty for the remainder of the warranty. The warranty should state whether or not it covers the costs of returning or repairing the bed.
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’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 copper-gel-infused memory foam layer, which helps to regulate 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 an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
