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 mattress enthusiasts and skeptics are divided. 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’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 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. If you are a heavy-sleeper or prefer a firmer bed, they can compress around the edges. 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 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. 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.
If you’re looking for a mattress that will last longer, look for hybrids with steel coils. They’re bouncier than all-foam models and can support heavier people. You can even flip them to extend their lifespan. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)
A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers 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 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 also specify whether it covers the cost of returning or repairing a 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 has a memory foam layer with copper-gel infusion, which helps regulate temperature.
The Allswell is also available in California king size, queen and king. It’s also very affordable, and the company frequently offers sales on this model. It has a generous, risk-free trial of up to one year and a lifetime warranty. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
