Pillow Top Mattress Or Not

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over your regular mattress. It gives a luxurious feel 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’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 also keeps you from getting too hot during the night so that you can enjoy a comfortable and restful night of sleep.

This pillow-top mattress is perfect for side sleepers or those who weigh less than 130 pounds. 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 your mattress’s overall surface area. This mattress has a tight-top with strong edge supports, which helps to avoid that problem.

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 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’re bouncier than all-foam models and can support heavier people. 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 is an assurance from the manufacturer to protect consumers in case there are any defects. It also covers the cost of 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.

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 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. The warranty should also specify whether it covers the cost of returning or repairing a mattress.

Value

Our former sleep editor is always up to date on the latest mattress and bedding trends. She’s also not afraid to spend a little more for better quality or comfort. 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, aptly named the Luxe Hybrid, features two layers of individually wrapped coils and foam of different density levels. It also has a memory foam layer with copper-gel infusion, which helps regulate 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 a generous risk-free trial period of up to a year and is backed by a lifetime warranty. That makes it a great value, especially if you’re sharing your bed with someone who has different sleeping preferences.
