Bramwell Pillow Top Mattress

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your mattress. It has a luxurious appearance 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

This mattress’s comfort level is right in the sweet spot for most sleepers. It is soft enough to support heavy people and cradle their bodies without being too firm or causing backache.

Its layers are carefully engineered with care, including the breathable and cooling AIRGOCELL foam that prevents heat from building up in your bed. 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 a great choice for side sleepers and those who weigh under 130 pounds. Pillow-tops provide a luxuriously plush feeling when you lie on them, and they conform 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. Luckily, this mattress avoids that problem by having a tight top with strong edge support.

Durability

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 can last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are 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. High-quality foams such as latex and organic Cotton are more durable compared to 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 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.

You can also get a warranty

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.

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 state how to resolve a problem.

Avocado, for example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their 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.

Value

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 also loves the versatility of this mattress, which can be flipped to have softer or harder 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 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 a generous risk-free trial period of up to a year and is backed by a lifetime warranty. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
