Should You Buy A Pillow Top Mattress?
The honest answer, in our experience, is no.
A pillow top is a stitched topper on a mattress. Pillow tops have become very popular with many manufacturers and retailers as they have been advertised to offer a hotel or cloud like feel to your mattress.
On a brand new mattress a pillow top can add a lovely soft or comfortable feel. However over time the pillow top can breakdown or sag and that feeling dissipates.
The other problem with pillow top mattresses is that it means the mattress can't be flipped. A mattress that allows for flip and turn let's the layers recover and increases longevity.
We have also found the many pillow tops are used to compensate for cheaper layers within the body of the mattress.
With so much choice now available, customers really should be able to find a flip and turn mattresses that offers that lovely soft finish without the need for a pillow top.
