Can You Cut The Pillow Top Off A Mattress

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.

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’ comfort level is perfect for most people. 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 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 the overall usable surface area of your mattress. 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. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable throughout the day.

Pillow top mattresses can have a shorter lifespan than other mattress types, particularly if you’re a heavy sleeper. 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). High-quality foams like latex and organic cotton are more durable than polyester and polyurethane.

If you are looking for a mattress with a longer lifespan, then look for hybrids that have 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 pillow-top mattresses aren’t designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)

The Right to Rent

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers the cost of repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies provide a warranty on their products. The terms and conditions can vary from brand to brand. 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 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’s also a fan of the versatility this mattress offers, as it’s able to be flipped for softer or firmer sides.

Allswell is Walmart’s mattress in a box line. It 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 features a copper gel-infused memory-foam layer that helps regulate the temperature.

The Allswell comes in queen, California king, and king sizes. It’s also very affordable, and the company frequently offers sales on this model. It comes with an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
