Gel Pillow Top Mattress Pad

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.

Pillow-tops mattresses are a controversial product that has both passionate supporters and skeptics. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

This mattress’ comfort level is perfect for most people. It’s soft enough to cradle the body and support heavier people without being too hard or causing back pain.

The layers of the bed are carefully designed, including the breathable AIRGOCELL cooling foam that prevents heat buildup in your mattress. This keeps you comfortable and cool during the night.

This is a pillow top mattress that is great for side sleepers, and people who weigh under 130 lbs. Pillow-tops provide a luxuriously plush feeling when you lie on them, and they conform 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. This mattress has a tight-top with strong edge supports, which helps to avoid that problem.

Durability

A mattress is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for 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 can compress over time causing sagging. Durability can also be affected by the material of the foam. Foams made from organic cotton and latex are more durable than polyurethane and polyester.

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 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.)

You can also get a 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 cover only certain issues or require additional fees like return shipping.

A good warranty on a mattress should be considered when purchasing 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 also state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.

Avocado, for example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their 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.

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, 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 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 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.
