Beautyrest Black Katarina Plush Pillow Top 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 mattress enthusiasts and skeptics are divided. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

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 also keeps you from getting too hot during the night so that you can enjoy a comfortable and restful night of sleep.

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 the total surface area of your bed. Luckily, this mattress avoids that problem by having a tight top with strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress will be one of your biggest purchases, and you want it to last. 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 last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are a heavy sleeper. The thick layer of foam can become compressed over time and cause sagging. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). High-quality foams such as latex and organic Cotton are more durable compared to polyester and polyurethane.

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 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 from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers 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.

A good warranty on a mattress should be considered when purchasing a new bed. 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 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 memory foam layer with copper-gel infusion, which helps regulate temperature.

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