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 offer a comfortable sleep surface, but wear out more quickly than models that don’t have pillow tops.
This mattress’ comfort level is perfect for most people. It’s soft and supportive enough to support heavier people, without being too hard.
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 are luxuriously plush and contour to your body when you lie down. However, they may compress around the edges if you are a heavy sleeper or someone who prefers 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 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 may have a shorter life span than other mattress types. This is especially true if you sleep a lot. The thick layer of soft foam can compress over time, leading to sagging and an unpleasant feeling. 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.
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 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 repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies provide a warranty on their products. However, the terms and conditions of a warranty can vary from one brand to another. Some warranties cover only certain issues or require additional fees like return shipping.
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 state how to resolve a problem.
For example, Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty on its mattresses. This includes a full coverage for the initial ten years and then a prorated coverage for remainder of warranty period. 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 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 is available in queen, king and California king sizes. It is also very inexpensive, and the company offers frequent sales on this model. It comes with an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
