Top Mattress Review
Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over 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.
The comfort level of this mattress is ideal 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 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 create a luxuriously plush feel when you lie down, and they contour closely to your body. They may compress around their edges if they are used by heavy sleepers or people who prefer a firmer mattress. This could reduce the overall usable surface area of your mattress. This mattress has a tight-top with strong edge supports, which helps to avoid that problem.
A mattress is a major investment that should last for many years. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable 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 foam can become compressed over time and cause sagging. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). 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’re bouncier than all-foam models and can support heavier people. You can flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (Most pillow-top mattresses aren’t designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)
You can also get a warranty
A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable businesses offer a product warranty. However, the warranty terms and conditions may vary from one brand or manufacturer to another. Some may cover only certain issues and require additional fees, such as return shipping charges.
A good mattress warranty should be a key consideration when shopping for a new bed. The warranty should be clear, including the duration of coverage and actions that could void it. The warranty should also specify what is offered as a resolution when a problem arises.
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. The warranty should state whether or not it covers the costs of returning or repairing the bed.
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 comes in queen, California king, and king sizes. 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. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
