Top Mattress Review
Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.
Pillow-top mattresses have passionate supporters and skeptics alike. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.
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 pillow-top mattress is perfect for side sleepers or those who weigh less than 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 the total surface area of your bed. 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 can compress over time causing sagging. The material of the foam (fiberfill, memory foam or latex) can also affect durability. Foams made from organic cotton and latex are more durable than polyurethane and polyester.
If you’re looking for a mattress that will last longer, look for hybrids with steel coils. They are more resilient than foam models and can support people who weigh more. You can even turn them to extend their life. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)
A mattress warranty is an assurance from the manufacturer to protect consumers in case there are any defects. The warranty also covers the cost for repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies provide a warranty on their products. However, the warranty terms and conditions may vary from one brand or manufacturer to another. Some warranties may only cover certain issues, and some may require additional fees such as 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 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. A warranty should also state whether it covers all or some of the costs associated with returning or repairing the mattress.
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.
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 features a copper gel-infused memory-foam layer that helps regulate the 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 an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
