Platinum Pillow Top Mattress

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-top mattresses have passionate supporters and skeptics alike. They offer a plush sleeping surface, but they tend to wear out quicker than models without pillow-tops.

Comfort

The comfort level of this mattress is ideal 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 will also keep you from getting too warm during the night, so you can enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep.

This is a pillow-top mattress that is a great choice for side sleepers and those who weigh under 130 pounds. Pillow-tops provide a luxuriously plush feeling when you lie on them, and they conform to your body. If you are a heavy-sleeper or prefer a firmer bed, they can compress around the edges. This could reduce the overall usable surface area of your mattress. Luckily, this mattress avoids that problem by having a tight top with strong edge support.

Durability

A mattress is a major investment that should last for many years. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable throughout the day.

Pillow-top mattresses can last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are 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). High-quality foams such as latex and organic Cotton are more durable compared to 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 flip them to extend their lifespan. (Most pillow-top mattresses aren’t designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)

Warranty

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. The warranty also covers the cost for repairs or replacements. Most reputable businesses offer a product warranty. However, the terms and conditions of a warranty can vary from one brand 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 include clear terms, such as the length of the coverage and any actions which can void the guarantee. The warranty should also state what resolution is offered when a problem occurs.

Avocado, for example, offers a 25 year limited warranty on their 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 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. 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.
