Can You Put Two Mattress On Top Of Each Other

Top Mattresses For Comfort and Style

You may not be ready to buy a new mattress or your old one might have lost its comfort. The right top mattress will breathe new life into your bed.

Pillow top mattresses have extra padding sewn to the top of the mattress cover. They are usually comfortable, but not suitable for all sleeping styles.

Support

A mattress topper is an inexpensive way to give your bed a comfortable makeover. It sits right on top of your mattress, held in place by straps. They can vary in thickness from about an inch or two to as thick as eight inches or more. 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 with the body and relieves pressure points. It also provides good motion isolation, meaning partners won’t disturb each other as much when changing positions in bed.

This topper is available in six bed sizes and is made in the U.S. using natural latex that’s sustainably farmed. It is breathable and helps to keep the sleeping surface cool and moist. It’s encased in a cotton cover that looks and feels luxurious. It is hypoallergenic and washable, and resists mildew and 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 great for those who sleep on their backs, stomachs, or sides.

Flip it over to choose between the firm or soft side. It’s made with a layer of softer memory foam and a layer of firmer latex, so it’s ideal for all types of sleepers.

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 is also affordable and comes a generous 30-day 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’s usually between 2 and 4 inches thick and can be made of many different 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 particularly important for those with shoulder, back 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. Also, pillow top mattresses tend to be deeper than standard mattresses, so it’s important to select sheets that can accommodate the additional cushioning.

Value

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

It has excellent edge support for a mattress made of foam. It comes in a variety of sizes including California king, and a huge 80 by 76-inch King for heavyweight couples.
