How To Clean Stains Out Of Pillow Top Mattress

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 have extra padding sewn to the 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. The thinner ones are not as supportive or cushioning but can hide lumps and bumps on your mattress.

Memory foam conforms with the body and relieves pressure points. 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 is encased with a cotton cover which looks and feels luxurious. It’s washable and hypoallergenic, resisting mildew and dust mites. It comes with a generous warranty.

Comfort

This mattress is made with foams which create a plush feeling and a medium amount of body contouring. It provides a solid support that can promote spinal alignment and relieve back pain. It’s great for those who sleep on their backs, stomachs, or sides.

It’s also flippable, so you can choose between a soft or firm side of the bed. 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’s also affordable and comes with a generous trial period. However, it doesn’t have the same cradling feel as an all-foam model and tends to compress around the edges more than some other mattresses. You’ll also need a deep fitted sheet to properly cover it.

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 topper helps reduce pressure on key points like the hips, shoulders and back. It also distributes weight evenly for a better night’s sleep. This is especially important for people with back, shoulder or hip pain.

Pillow top mattresses tend to sag with 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 also has a very good edge support for a foam mattress. It is available in a wide range of sizes, including California king and a huge 80 x 76-inch king for heavyweight couples.
