Pillow top mattresses have been on the market for years now. These pillow top beds were the perfect option for people who wanted to increase the comfort of their sleeping surface without spending a fortune.
Pillow top mattresses can be constructed from a variety of materials, giving you more options in terms of comfort and price range.
Mattress shoppers have varying opinions about a pillow top mattress. Is it really possible to enjoy extra comfort without spending so much on your mattress?
Let’s find out what a pillow top is and how it can benefit your sleep.
Among the number of mattresses available in Singapore, pillow-top mattresses are some of the most popular. A pillow top is a single cushioning layer that is usually made of memory foam, latex, fibres, or other materials that give a "cushiony" feeling.
This pillow top is sewn on top of the mattress, leaving a gap between the uppermost layer and the comfort layer. This pillow top features a more distinct look compared to a more seamless Euro top. Think of it as a separate, thin layer of cushioning on top of your mattress.
One of the most popular types of pillow tops is made from memory foam. A memory foam pillow top, as its name describes, contains a layer of memory foam, which gives it its contouring feel. Pillow top mattresses can also feature natural and more eco-friendly materials.
The top layer of a pillow-top mattress is generally 2 inches thick, but can be thicker depending on the brand. Although it may appear as separate cushioning from the mattress, you don’t have to worry about a pillow top falling out of shape since it is sewn directly onto your mattress.
Here are some specific features of a pillow-top mattress:
One of the reasons pillow top mattresses are popular is because they raise the standard for mattress comfort. This pillow provides a luxurious, plush feel, which many shoppers describe as sleeping on a cloud.
Pillow top mattresses usually have pocketed spring structures that balance the soft feel of the pillow-top layer. So, if you are looking for a mattress that is both soft and supportive, this is a versatile choice for you.
Whether it is too soft or too firm for your needs, the incorrect mattress support can cause more harm than good. If you have a bad mattress, you are prone to waking up with aches and pains.
Luckily, a pillow-top mattress is introduced to offer a balance between contouring comfort and pushback support. These two features target and relieve the tension on your pressure points. With its contouring feel, a pillow top mattress also does a great job of distributing the weight of mattress sharers.
Sharing a mattress with your partner? If yes, you will understand how challenging it is to choose a mattress that can accommodate both of your needs. Not to mention the possible disturbance that you can experience when you shift positions.
With the extra contour padding, a pillow top mattress can absorb the movements of your partner to ensure an undisturbed rest. If you are a hot or restless sleeper, a pillow top mattress will allow you to toss and turn without getting stuck on the mattress.
One of the distinctive advantages of a pillow-top mattress that many shoppers love is that it’s comfortable on the first day. However, a pillow-top mattress with memory foam materials may still release off-gassing smells. But in general, pillow-top mattress shoppers praise the excellent comfort that a new mattress provides.
Compared to a Euro top mattress, a pillow-top variety is generally more affordable. It also comes in a variety of sizes, materials, firmness levels, and price points, so you can choose one that fits your needs and budget.
Since it contains an extra padded layer, a pillow-top mattress is heavier than a standard mattress. Many pillow-top mattresses also require some rotation to retain their shape and extend their lifespans. If not properly maintained, the materials may compress over time and cause the mattress to sag.
A mattress with a pillow-top layer is ideal for sleepers who are looking for the perfect balance of support and comfort in their sleep.
