Box Top Mattress

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-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.

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.

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 is a pillow-top mattress that is a great choice for side sleepers and those who weigh under 130 pounds. 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 your mattress’s overall surface area. This mattress has a tight-top with strong edge supports, which helps to avoid that problem.

Durability

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 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. 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 are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. 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 the cost of 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.

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 example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their mattresses. This includes full coverage for the first ten years, followed by prorated limited coverage for the rest of the warranty period. The warranty should state whether or not it covers the costs of returning or repairing the bed.

Value

Our former sleep ecommerce writer is always on the lookout for the latest in bedding and mattresses, and she’s not afraid to pay more if it means 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.

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 memory foam layer with copper-gel infusion, which helps regulate temperature.

The Allswell is available in queen, king and California king sizes. It’s also very affordable, and the company frequently offers 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.
