Mattress Pad Top

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your 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 enough to cradle the body and support heavier people without being too hard or causing back pain.

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 pillow-top mattress is perfect for side sleepers or those who weigh less than 130 pounds. 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 the overall usable surface area of your mattress. Luckily, this mattress avoids that problem by having a tight top with strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress will be one of your biggest purchases, and you want it to last. 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 of soft foam can compress over time, leading to sagging and an unpleasant feeling. 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.

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 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. The warranty also covers the cost for repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies offer a warranty for their products. The terms and conditions can vary from brand to brand. Some may cover only certain issues and require additional fees, such as return shipping charges.

A good warranty on a mattress should be considered when purchasing 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 instance, offers a limited warranty of 25 years on its mattresses. This includes a full coverage for the initial ten years and then a prorated coverage for remainder of warranty period. A warranty should also state whether it covers all or some of the costs associated with returning or repairing the 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 loves that this mattress can be flipped over to get softer or firmer side.

Allswell, Walmart’s mattress line in a box, 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 memory foam layer with copper-gel infusion, which helps regulate temperature.

The Allswell is available in queen, king and California 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. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
