Sealy Comfort Pillow Top Mattress

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

This mattress’ comfort level is perfect for most people. It’s soft and supportive enough to support heavier people, without being too hard.

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 is a pillow-top mattress that is a great choice for side sleepers and those who weigh under 130 pounds. Pillow-tops are luxuriously plush and contour to your body when you lie down. 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 is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for years. A good mattress will help you to feel rested throughout the day. You spend a third of your time in bed.

Pillow-top mattresses can last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are a heavy sleeper. 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’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 designed to be flipped, but rotating them can improve comfort and extend lifespans.)

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 companies offer a warranty for their products. 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 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 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 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, 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 available in queen, king and California king sizes. It is also very inexpensive, and the company offers frequent 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.
