Pillow Top Mattress Makes My Back Hurt

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 mattress enthusiasts and skeptics are divided. They offer a comfortable sleep surface, but wear out more quickly than models that don’t have 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 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. 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 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. 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 of soft foam can compress over time, leading to sagging and an unpleasant feeling. Durability is also affected by the type of foam (fiberfill or memory foam, latex). 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 even turn them to extend their life. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase their lifespan.)

The Right to Rent

A mattress warranty is an assurance from the manufacturer to protect consumers in case there are any defects. The warranty also covers the cost for repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies provide a warranty on their products. However, the terms and conditions of a warranty can vary from one brand to another. Some may cover only certain issues and require additional fees, such as return shipping charges.

A good mattress warranty should be a key consideration when shopping for 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 specify what is offered as a resolution when a problem arises.

Avocado, for instance, offers a limited warranty of 25 years 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 also specify whether it covers the cost of returning or repairing a 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 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, 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 also available in California king size, queen and king. The company often offers sales on the Allswell model. It is also very affordable. 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.
