Pillow Top Mattress Consumer Reports

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over your regular mattress. It has a luxurious appearance and is hygienic.

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’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.

Its layers are carefully engineered with care, including the breathable and cooling AIRGOCELL foam that prevents heat from building up in your bed. This keeps you comfortable and cool during the night.

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. However, they may compress around the edges if you are a heavy sleeper or someone who prefers a firmer mattress. This could reduce the total surface area of your bed. This mattress is able to avoid this problem because it has a tight top and strong edge support.

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 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 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 resilient than foam models and can support people who weigh more. You can even turn them to extend their life. (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 from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies offer a warranty for their products. However, the warranty terms and conditions may vary from one brand or manufacturer to another. Some warranties may only cover certain issues, and some may require additional fees such as shipping charges.

When shopping for a bed, a good mattress warranty is a must. 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.

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. 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’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, 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. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
