Plush Top Air Mattresses

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular mattress. It provides a luxurious look and serves a hygienic purpose.

Pillow-top mattress enthusiasts and skeptics are divided. 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 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 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 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.

If you are looking for a mattress with a longer lifespan, then look for hybrids that have steel coils. They are more resilient than foam models and can support people who weigh more. You can even flip them to extend their lifespan. (Most pillows-top mattresses were not designed to be flipped. However, rotating them can improve their comfort and increase 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. The warranty also covers the cost for repairs or replacements. Most reputable businesses offer a product warranty. The terms and conditions can vary from brand to brand. 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 also specify what is offered as a resolution when a problem arises.

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. 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 also loves the versatility of this mattress, which can be flipped to have softer or harder sides.

The Allswell brand is Walmart’s mattress-in-a-box line, which 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 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. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
