Queen Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Tripp Luxury Firm Pillow Top Mattress

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 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’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 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. However, they may compress around the edges if you are a heavy sleeper or someone who prefers 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. A good mattress can help keep you comfortable 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). High-quality foams like latex and organic cotton are more durable than polyester and polyurethane.

Look for hybrid mattresses with steel coils if you want a mattress to last longer. They are more flexible than all-foam mattresses and can support heavier individuals. You can flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (Most pillow top mattresses aren’t meant to be flipped. But rotating them can increase comfort and lengthen their lifespan.

Warranty

A mattress warranty from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies offer a warranty for 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.

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 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 state whether or not it covers the costs of returning or repairing the bed.

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, Walmart’s mattress line in a box, 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 has a copper-gel-infused memory foam layer, which helps to regulate temperature.

The Allswell comes in queen, California king, and king sizes. It is also very inexpensive, and the company offers frequent 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. This makes it an excellent value, especially if your bed is shared with someone else who has different sleeping habits.
