Top Mattress Review

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

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 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 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 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. They may compress around their edges if they are used by heavy sleepers or people who prefer a firmer mattress. 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 one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make, and it needs to last for 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 have a shorter lifespan than other mattress types, particularly if you’re 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.

Look for hybrid mattresses with steel coils if you want a mattress to last longer. They’re bouncier than all-foam models and can support heavier people. You can flip them over to extend the life of your mattress. (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 from the manufacturer protects consumers against defects. It also covers the cost of repairs or replacements. Most reputable businesses offer a product warranty. 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.

A good mattress warranty should be a key consideration when shopping for a new bed. 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 specify what is offered as a resolution when a problem arises.

For example, Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty on its mattresses. This includes a full coverage for the initial ten years and then a prorated coverage for remainder of warranty period. 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 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’s also a fan of the versatility this mattress offers, as it’s able to be flipped for softer or firmer sides.

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

The Allswell is also available in California king size, queen and king. 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. It’s a great deal, especially if you share your bed with someone else and they have different sleeping preferences.
