Pillow Top Mattress Buying Guide

Pillow top mattresses provide an additional upholstery layer at the top of the mattress, over the support system of the mattress for plush comfort. Whether you’re resting on a twin, full, queen, or king sized bed, this softness can help provide comfort and may help promote a more restful night’s sleep.

Consider the following when shopping for a new pillow top mattress:

Choose the level of softness that’s right for you.

Not every pillow top mattress is built the same, and some will feel softer than others. Test different options at your local mattress store to determine your personal comfort preference.

Put comfort first.

Although pillow top mattresses are known for their cushion, they are also designed to provide proper support from either the support system, which can be either an innerspring or all-foam support system. When considering a pillow top mattress while shopping, think about comfort first based on what feels best for you.

Think about your sleep preferences.

Pillow top mattresses offer very plush comfort. They are frequently an ideal choice for side sleepers, and for those who like enhanced cushioning at the sleep surface.
