Top Mattress Review
Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular mattress. It gives a luxurious feel and is hygienic.
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.
The comfort level of this mattress is ideal for most sleepers. It’s soft enough to cradle the body and support heavier people without being too hard or causing back pain.
Its layers have been carefully engineered, including the breathable AIRGOCELL Foam that prevents heat building up in your bedroom. This keeps you comfortable and cool during the night.
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. 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 will be one of your biggest purchases, and you want it to last. 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. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). Foams made from organic cotton and latex are more durable than polyurethane and polyester.
If you are looking for a mattress with a longer lifespan, then look for hybrids that have steel coils. They’re bouncier than all-foam models and can support heavier people. You can even turn them to extend their life. (Most pillow-top mattresses aren’t designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)
A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers the cost of repairs or replacements. Most reputable businesses offer a product warranty. The terms and conditions can vary from brand to brand. 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 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.
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’s also a fan of the versatility this mattress offers, as it’s able to be flipped for softer or firmer sides.
Allswell, Walmart’s mattress line in a box, was 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 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 comes with an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
