Stearns And Foster Lux Estate 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 can bring a new life to 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 is placed directly on top of the mattress and is held in place with 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 comes in six sizes and is made from sustainably cultivated natural latex in the U.S. It is breathable and helps to keep the sleeping surface cool and moist. It is encased with a cotton cover which looks and feels luxurious. It is hypoallergenic and washable, and resists mildew and mites. It comes with a generous warranty.

Comfort

This mattress is built with foams that create a plush feel and 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.

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.

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 is one with a thick, soft layer that is stitched or glued to the mattress’ outer cover. It is usually between 2 and four inches thick and made from a variety of 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 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 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 is available in a wide range of sizes, including California king and a huge 80 x 76-inch king for heavyweight couples.
