Mattress Top Layer

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular mattress. It has a luxurious appearance 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 is soft enough to support heavy people and cradle their bodies without being too firm or causing backache.

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 pillow-top mattress is perfect for side sleepers or those who weigh less than 130 pounds. 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 overall usable surface area of your mattress. This mattress has a tight-top with strong edge supports, which helps to avoid that problem.

Durability

A mattress is a major investment that should last for many 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. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). Foams made from organic cotton and latex are more durable than polyurethane and polyester.

If you are looking for a mattress with a longer lifespan, then look for hybrids that have steel coils. They are more resilient than foam models and can support people who weigh more. 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.)

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 terms and conditions of a warranty can vary from one brand to another. Some warranties may only cover certain issues, and some may require additional fees such as 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 state how to resolve a problem.

For example, Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty on its 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.

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 is Walmart’s mattress in a box line. It 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 copper-gel-infused memory foam layer, which helps to regulate 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 comes with an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
