Mattress Topping

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over 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 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 are luxuriously plush and contour to your body when you lie down. 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. 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 have a shorter lifespan than other mattress types, particularly if you’re 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. 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 flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (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 provide a warranty on 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 include clear terms, such as the length of the coverage and any actions which can void the guarantee. The warranty should also state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.

Avocado, for instance, offers a limited warranty of 25 years 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 state whether or not it covers the costs of returning or repairing the bed.

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 loves that this mattress can be flipped over to get softer or firmer side.

Allswell is Walmart’s mattress in a box line. It was launched in 2017. This model is called the Luxe Hybrid and features two layers with individually wrapped coils, as well as foam of varying 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 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.
