What is a pillow top mattress and is it right for me?


The term “pillow top mattress” may call to mind a number of different images. Perhaps you think of resting on a fluffy cloud or cuddling up on a giant cotton ball. While these aren’t perfect descriptions, they hint at the most important attribute of this type of mattress: supreme comfort while sleeping.

What is a pillow top mattress?

A pillow top mattress is simply a mattress with an additional 2 to 4 inch pillow-like padding sewn on the top and bottom to maximize comfort. These extra layers of cushioning create a luxurious sleeping surface that molds to the body and relieves pressure while lying down. While most retailers sell mattresses with a pillow top on just one side, which is actually called a “Euro top,” all of L&W’s pillow top mattresses are flippable, meaning they’ll last significantly longer.

Why should I consider a pillow top mattress?

Pillow top mattresses are an excellent choice for side sleepers because the extra cushion relieves pressure while sleeping. Additionally, L&W’s pillow top mattresses are designed to increase airflow. If you get hot at night, a pillow top mattress might be the answer.

Some people express concern that pillow top mattresses aren’t durable. While this may be true of other companies’ products, L&W Bedding’s time-tested mattresses will last for 15 to 20 years because we handcraft our mattresses out of high-quality materials.

Take, for instance, our Premium Latex Pillow Top mattress built of high-density foam and reinforced with support clips to prevent the mattress from collapsing around the edges. To ensure our pillow top materials stay in place through years of use, we attach them to each inner coil of the mattress. We also offer premium box springs that can double the life of your mattress. At L&W Bedding, long-lasting quality is our top priority.
