What is a pillow top mattress?
A pillow top mattress is classified as any mattress that features an extra, luxurious and often beneficial level of padding on top of the typical mattress materials, adding additional support, providing a softer feel and even offering a more orthopaedic finish in some cases. Sewn or placed directly on top of the standard mattress, pillow tops often only feature their additional padding on one side.
A pillow top mattress can be made of many different materials within the pillow section, including foam, wool, latex, memory foam, fibre fill and even cotton. Each of these materials results in a specific and unique finish which have different feels and different purposes.
Pillow tops are most commonly found on standard spring-based mattresses, as well as some airbeds, though they can also be found on some foam or memory foam mattresses also. With pillow top mattresses spanning such a wide range of materials, there are many different kinds and varieties to choose from, making finding that ideal fit a little easier than with mattresses in a limited range.
Is a pillow top mattress good?
With so many different varieties of pillow top mattress available, it’s highly likely that there’s a pillow top mattress within the available range to suit your exact needs of requirements. One of the functionalities of a pillow top on the mattress, similar to a padded mattress protector or overlayer, is that it alters the feel, firmness or style of the mattress as a whole, making it suitable for specific purposes.
For those who struggle with back pain or aches during the night as a result of the way they sleep or their mattress, a firmer pillow top might be the ideal solution. Such as one designed with memory foam to offer a more supportive surface to sleep upon. For those who prefer a softer bed, wool or cotton stuffing for the pillow top layer can provide a comfortable, luxury finish that’s perfect for a more gentle night’s sleep.
It’s all about your personal preference, so make sure you research what type of pillow top mattress is the right fit for you. Once you’ve figured that out, there’s a mattress in the pillow top range that will be the perfect match, and make each night’s sleep that bit sweeter.
How long does a pillow top mattress last?
A pillow top mattress has a lifespan on par with the majority of mattresses, with experts suggesting replacing your mattress every 7-10 years, depending on the frequency of use. As a pillow top mattress cannot be flipped, the lifespan of it may be shortened slightly, though it can be turned to gain some extra use from it.
The exact lifespan of a pillow top mattress can also vary depending on the materials used for its pillow, with wool and cotton carrying a longer lifespan than certain types of foam and memory foam, which may become moulded into shape over time, resulting in a less comfortable night’s sleep towards the end of the mattresses lifespan.
Is a pillow top mattress good for side sleepers?
As with any kind of sleeper, there are a wide variety of different side sleeping positions, so no one mattress or material is the perfect fit for every sleeper of each type. For those who sleep on their side, it’s important to maintain good alignment of the hip and shoulder to prevent back or side pain over time.
Pillow top mattresses made with memory foam toppers are most likely the best fit to help maintain better alignment during sleep, thanks to the way they allow the material to give and mould around the body, but some softer materials may also work such as cotton or wool.
To ensure your mattress is the best fit for you, it’s important to take into consideration your possible pain points as well as your style of sleeping, for example, neck or back pain, which may also benefit from a specific type of pillow top mattress.
Can you flip a pillow top mattress?
In the majority of cases, you cannot flip a pillow top mattress, as the extra layer of padding and additional materials that make up the ‘pillow’ are only included on the top side. However, a pillow top mattress can be turned to make the most of its lifespan.
Thanks to the design of pillow top mattresses, many do not require flipping thanks to their high-quality design and practical materials that stay supportive for longer. With Mattress Next Day, our handmade pillow top mattresses are designed to last without flipping, ensuring a better night’s sleep for longer.
