The top two “best buy” mattresses in Consumer Reports’ 2015 review come from the “pillowtop” category. Pillowtop mattresses range from firm to plush, with a soft layer of cushioning sewn into the top. The mattress itself can be made of innerspring coils, memory foam, latex, water or air. The padding on top can be polyurethane foam, polypropylene, memory foam, latex, fiberfill, wool, or cotton.
Pillowtops are great for side sleepers and back sleepers alike. Heavier individuals and back pain sufferers have sought solace with the combination of support and softness offered by the best pillowtop mattresses. Once you make the switch, you may be a convert for life. As Sarah Bernard from NY Mag put it: “After trying all the pillow tops, the throwbacks felt too springy.”
You can find pillowtop mattresses from Sealy, Simmons, Stearns & Foster, and other well-known manufacturers. As our Sleep Specialists at Mattress World Northwest will tell you, the choice of a pillow top mattress is less about the brand name and more about the specifications and materials. Our store has 11 local outlets in the Portland, OR area and offers the best selection of mattress inventory, with multiple options at every price point.
“Finally, got a nice pillow-top queen size bed with a box spring! The guys here were great and really made me feel comfortable, as I was the only person in the store trying out beds. The price listed on the bed includes the mattress, box spring, frame, warranty and delivery. They will help you in order to get the bed you want for your budget. They are patient with their customers and will let you be as you try to make a decision. I recommend this place for anyone wanting to buy a high quality mattress at a good price.”
“Very friendly sales staff. Excellent mattress selection, plus they beat prices elsewhere. We went in just to check it out over Memorial Day weekend after we'd already picked out a mattress at another store. For the same money, we walked out with a nice pillowtop mattress and two free queen-size memory foam pillows. It was the comfiest bed we’d tried, by far! Now I wake up with no more aches and pains in my back and neck. With free same-day delivery and old mattress removal, you can’t go wrong! I'm impressed and will definitely go back when we need another mattress.”
“After shopping around and test-driving several beds, I finally settled on the Simmons Beautyrest pillow top mattress and I am so glad I did. This is absolutely the comfiest bed that I have ever owned. I had previously purchased "plush" beds, which were ultimately too firm for my husband's and my liking. The helpful staff at Mattress World Northwest explained the different materials used in construction and we’re all the wiser for it. They let us take our time and try different brands, models and styles. We definitely walked out with the right choice. This is the first bed we’ve ever owned in which we can both sleep soundly through the night, without tossing and turning. ”
“My daughter is a tough customer. Her mattress was only two years old, but she complained that it was “too firm” – like “sleeping on a rock.” She was used to “pillowtop mattresses,” which I really knew nothing about before coming to Mattress World Northwest. I love having my kids visit, so I was willing to do just about anything to make their stays more comfortable. I was able to find an affordable solution at Mattress World Northwest. Thankfully, she loves it!!! Made a huge difference. Thank you for your help. My daughter now stays the night more often. To me, that is priceless!”
