Top Mattresses Consumer Reports

Top Mattress Review

Top Mattress is a thick material that covers your regular mattress. It gives a luxurious feel and is hygienic.

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.

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 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 your mattress’s overall surface area. 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. 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 can last less than other types of mattresses, especially if you are a heavy sleeper. The thick layer of foam can become compressed over time and cause sagging. The material of the foam (fiberfill, memory foam or latex) can also affect durability. 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 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.

You can also get a warranty

A mattress warranty is an assurance from the manufacturer to protect consumers in case there are any defects. It also covers repairs or replacements. Most reputable companies provide a warranty on their products. However, the terms and conditions of a warranty can vary from one brand to another. Some warranties cover only certain issues or require additional fees like return shipping.

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.

For example, Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty on its mattresses. This includes full coverage for the first ten years, followed by prorated limited coverage for the rest of the warranty period. The warranty should also specify whether it covers the cost of returning or repairing a mattress.

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 loves that this mattress can be flipped over to get softer or firmer side.

Allswell is Walmart’s mattress in a box line. It was 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 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 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.
