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 can bring a new life to 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 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. The thinner ones are not as supportive or cushioning but can hide lumps and bumps on your mattress.

Memory foam conforms to the body, providing comfort and pressure point relief. It also provides good motion isolation, meaning partners won’t disturb each other as much 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 is backed by 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 a great choice for back, stomach, or side sleepers.

It’s also flippable, so you can choose between a soft or firm side of the bed. It has a layer made of softer latex and a layer made of memory foam.

Comfort varies by person and can be hard to quantify, but this mattress has plenty of positive feedback from our team, including anecdotal evidence like waking up without back pain or never sweating through 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 topper helps reduce pressure on key points like the hips, shoulders and back. It also evenly distributes weight for a better sleep. This is particularly important for those with shoulder, back or hip pain.

Pillow top mattresses tend to sag with time. This is often unavoidable, but rotating the mattress every few months can help prolong 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 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’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 comes in a variety of sizes including California king, and a huge 80 by 76-inch King for heavyweight couples.
