Top Mattresses For Comfort and Style

Maybe you’re not quite ready for a new mattress, or maybe your old one has lost its comfort. The right top mattress will breathe new life into your bed.

Pillow top mattresses are padded mattresses with extra padding sewn on top of the mattress cover. They’re typically comfortable but not suited for every sleeping style.

Support

A mattress topper can be an inexpensive way to make your bed more comfortable. It is placed directly on top of the mattress and is held in place with straps. They can range in thickness from an inch to eight inches. Thinner ones don’t usually offer much extra support or cushioning, but they can help hide lumps and bumps in your current mattress.

Memory foam conforms to the body, providing comfort and pressure point relief. It also offers good motion isolation so that partners will not be disturbed as much by each other when changing positions in bed.

This topper comes in six sizes and is made from sustainably cultivated natural latex in the U.S. It’s breathable, helping to keep the sleep surface cool and dry. It’s encased in a cotton cover that looks and feels luxurious. It’s washable and hypoallergenic, resisting mildew and dust mites. It is backed by a generous warranty.

Comfort

This mattress is built with foams that create a plush feel and medium amount of body contouring. It offers solid support that promotes spinal alignment and can help relive back pain. It’s a great choice for back, stomach, or side sleepers.

Flip it over to choose between the firm or soft side. It has a layer made of softer latex and a layer made of memory foam.

It’s hard to quantify comfort, as it varies from person to person. However, our team has received many positive reviews about this mattress, including anecdotal feedback like never having back pain when waking up or never sweating through the sheets. It’s also affordable and comes with a generous trial period. It doesn’t provide the same comfort as an all-foam mattress and tends towards compression around the edges. To properly cover the mattress, you’ll need a fitted sheet with a deep pocket.

Durability

A pillow top mattress has a thick layer of soft material that is glued or stitched to the mattress cover. It is usually between 2 and four inches thick and made from a variety of materials.

The cushioned top helps to reduce pressure at key points such as the hips and shoulders. It also evenly distributes weight for a better sleep. This is especially important for people with back, shoulder or hip pain.

Unfortunately, pillow top mattresses have a tendency to sag over time. It is difficult to avoid this, but rotating your mattress every few months will help extend its life. Pillow top mattresses are usually deeper than standard mattresses. It is important to choose sheets that will accommodate the extra cushioning.

Value

The Allswell is the latest mattress-in-a-box from Walmart, and it offers great value at $699 for a queen. It’s a hybrid bed with layers of temperature-regulating foam and copper-gel-infused memory foam. It’s not as plush as top ten mattresses, but it is still comfortable for most people.

It has excellent edge support for a mattress made of foam. It is available in a wide range of sizes, including California king and a huge 80 x 76-inch king for heavyweight couples.
