Consumer Reports Top Rated Mattresses

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over your regular mattress. It has a luxurious appearance and is hygienic.

Pillow-tops mattresses are a controversial product that has both passionate supporters and skeptics. 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 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 will also keep you from getting too warm during the night, so you can enjoy a comfortable night’s 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. 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 is able to avoid this problem because it has a tight top and strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress will be one of your biggest purchases, and you want it to last. A good mattress will help you to feel rested throughout the day. You spend a third of your time in bed.

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 like latex and organic cotton are more durable than polyester and polyurethane.

If you’re looking for a mattress that will last longer, look for hybrids with steel coils. They are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. 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.)

Warranty

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers 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 warranties may only cover certain issues, and some may require additional fees such as shipping charges.

When shopping for a bed, a good mattress warranty is a must. The warranty should offer clear terms, including the length of coverage and any actions that can void the warranty. The warranty should state how to resolve a problem.

Avocado, for example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their mattresses. This includes full coverage during the first ten-year period, followed by a prorated limited warranty for the remainder of the warranty. A warranty should also state whether it covers all or some of the costs associated with returning or repairing the mattress.

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 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, aptly named the Luxe Hybrid, features two layers of individually wrapped coils and foam of different density levels. It also has a copper-gel-infused memory foam layer, which helps to regulate temperature.

The Allswell is also available in California king size, queen and king. 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. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
