Manhattan Pillow Top Mattress

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your mattress. It has a luxurious appearance and is hygienic.

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.

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.

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. They may compress around their edges if they are used by heavy sleepers or people who prefer a firmer mattress. This could reduce the total surface area of your bed. 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. 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 last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are a heavy sleeper. The thick layer can compress over time causing sagging. The material of the foam (fiberfill, memory foam or latex) can also affect durability. High-quality foams like latex and organic cotton are more durable than polyester and polyurethane.

Look for hybrid mattresses with steel coils if you want a mattress to last longer. They are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. 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.)

The Right to Rent

A mattress warranty is a guarantee from the manufacturer that protects consumers in case of defects. The warranty also covers the cost for 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 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 state how to resolve a problem.

Avocado, for example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their 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, 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 comes in queen, California king, and king sizes. 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. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
