Orthopedic Mattress Top

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is an extra thick layer of material placed over your 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 plush sleeping surface, but they tend to wear out quicker than models without pillow-tops.

Comfort

This mattress’ comfort level is perfect for most people. 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 is a pillow top mattress that is great for side sleepers, and people who weigh under 130 lbs. Pillow-tops create a luxuriously plush feel when you lie down, and they contour closely 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 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 have a shorter lifespan than other mattress types, particularly if you’re 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). High-quality foams like latex and organic cotton are more durable than polyester and polyurethane.

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 flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)

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 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 also state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.

For example, Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty on its mattresses. This includes a full coverage for the initial ten years and then a prorated coverage for remainder of warranty period. 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.

The Allswell brand is Walmart’s mattress-in-a-box line, which 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 a generous risk-free trial period of up to a year and is backed by a lifetime warranty. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
