Ikea Pillow Top Mattress Topper

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular 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 offer a plush sleeping surface, but they tend to wear out quicker than models without pillow-tops.

Comfort

This mattress’s comfort level is right in the sweet spot 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 are carefully engineered with care, including the breathable and cooling AIRGOCELL foam that prevents heat from building up in your bed. This keeps you comfortable and cool during the night.

This is a pillow-top mattress that is a great choice for side sleepers and those who weigh under 130 pounds. Pillow-tops are luxuriously plush and contour to your body when you lie down. They may compress around their edges if they are used by heavy sleepers or people who prefer a firmer mattress. 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 will be one of your biggest purchases, and you want it to last. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable throughout the day.

Pillow-top mattresses can last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are a heavy sleeper. The thick layer can compress over time causing sagging. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). 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 is a guarantee from the manufacturer that protects consumers in case of defects. It also covers the cost of repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies offer a warranty for their products. 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 be clear, including the duration of coverage and actions that could void it. The warranty should state how to resolve a problem.

For example, Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty on its mattresses. This includes full coverage for the first ten years, followed by prorated limited coverage for the rest of the warranty period. The warranty should also specify whether it covers the cost of returning or repairing a mattress.

Value

Our former sleep ecommerce editor keeps up with all the latest in mattresses and bedding, and isn’t afraid to pay a bit more for better comfort or durability. She also loves the versatility of this mattress, which can be flipped to have softer or harder sides.

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 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 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.
