Non Pillow Top Mattress Reviews

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 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 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 also keeps you from getting too hot during the night so that you can enjoy a comfortable and restful night of sleep.

This is a pillow-top mattress that is a great choice for side sleepers and those who weigh under 130 pounds. Pillow-tops are luxuriously plush and contour to your body when you lie down. 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 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 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 are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. 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 is a guarantee from the manufacturer that protects consumers in case of defects. It also covers 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 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 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.

Avocado, for example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their 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 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.

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 features a copper gel-infused memory-foam layer that helps regulate the temperature.

The Allswell is available in queen, king and California king sizes. It’s also very affordable, and the company frequently offers sales on this model. It comes with an generous risk-free test period of up a year, and is backed by lifetime warranty. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
