Beautyrest Black Katarina Luxury Pillow Top Queen Mattress

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over your regular mattress. It gives a luxurious feel and is hygienic.

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

The comfort level of this mattress is ideal for most sleepers. It’s soft enough to cradle the body and support heavier people without being too hard or causing back pain.

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 create a luxuriously plush feel when you lie down, and they contour closely to your body. If you are a heavy-sleeper or prefer a firmer bed, they can compress around the edges. This could reduce the total surface area of your bed. This mattress is able to avoid this problem because it has a tight top and strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress is a major investment that should last for many years. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable throughout the day.

Pillow-top mattresses can last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are a heavy sleeper. The thick layer can compress over time causing 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 pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)

Warranty

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. 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.

When shopping for a bed, a good mattress warranty is a must. The warranty should be clear, including the duration of coverage and actions that could void it. The warranty should also specify what is offered as a resolution when a problem arises.

Avocado, for instance, offers a limited warranty of 25 years on its 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.

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, 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 memory foam layer with copper-gel infusion, which helps 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 has a generous, risk-free trial of up to one year and a lifetime warranty. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
