Pillow Top Mattresses Review

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick layer of material that goes over your regular mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.

Pillow-top mattresses have passionate supporters and skeptics alike. They provide a plush sleep surface but tend to wear out faster than models without pillow tops.

Comfort

This mattress’s comfort level is right in the sweet spot for most sleepers. It’s soft and supportive enough to support heavier people, without being too hard.

The layers of the bed are carefully designed, including the breathable AIRGOCELL cooling foam that prevents heat buildup in your mattress. 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. If you are a heavy-sleeper or prefer a firmer bed, they can compress around the edges. 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 one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for 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 may have a shorter life span than other mattress types. This is especially true if you sleep a lot. The thick layer of foam can become compressed over time and cause 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.

If you’re looking for a mattress that will last longer, look for hybrids with steel coils. 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 designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)

You can also get a warranty

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against 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 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 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 full coverage during the first ten-year period, followed by a prorated limited warranty for the remainder of the warranty. 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’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 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. 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.
