Do Pillow Top Mattresses Last

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.

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 great for side sleepers, and people who weigh under 130 lbs. 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.

Durability

A mattress is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for years. A good mattress will help you to feel rested throughout the day. You spend a third of your time in bed.

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 of foam can become compressed over time and cause sagging. 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.

Look for hybrid mattresses with steel coils if you want a mattress to last longer. 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.)

You can also get a warranty

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against 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.

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 state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.

Avocado, for instance, offers a limited warranty of 25 years on its mattresses. This includes full coverage during the first ten-year period, followed by a prorated limited warranty for the remainder of the warranty. The warranty should state whether or not it covers the costs of returning or repairing the bed.

Value

Our former sleep ecommerce writer is always on the lookout for the latest in bedding and mattresses, and she’s not afraid to pay more if it means better comfort or durability. 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 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. The company often offers sales on the Allswell model. It is also very affordable. 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.
