My Pillow Top Mattress Pad

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 mattresses have passionate supporters and skeptics alike. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

The comfort level of this mattress is ideal 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 will also keep you from getting too warm during the night, so you can enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep.

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. Luckily, this mattress avoids that problem by having a tight top with strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for years. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable throughout the day.

Pillow top mattresses may have a shorter life span than other mattress types. This is especially true if you sleep a lot. The thick layer can compress over time causing sagging. 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 are more resilient than foam models and can support people who weigh more. You can flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (Most pillow top mattresses aren’t meant to be flipped. But rotating them can increase comfort and lengthen their lifespan.

You can also get a warranty

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 provide a warranty on 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 warranty on a mattress should be considered when purchasing a new bed. The warranty should offer clear terms, including the length of coverage and any actions that can void the warranty. The warranty should also specify what is offered as a resolution when a problem arises.

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 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’s also a fan of the versatility this mattress offers, as it’s able to be flipped for softer or firmer sides.

Allswell, Walmart’s mattress line in a box, was 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 features a copper gel-infused memory-foam layer that helps regulate the 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. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
