Back to the question, "What is a pillowtop mattress"? In mattress and bedding stores, the term pillowtop refers to a general style of bed, made with some additional padding on the surface, to increase softness or increase the perception of luxury. Every mattress factory has their own idea of what will be a popular seller in a mattress store, so each bed is different. The extra padding you see on the surface of a pillow top mattress can be filled with fibre, other upholstery or memory foam. This additional padded surface is built into the mattress, and cannot be removed. The components used to build the pillow top bed surface can be just as important as the rest of the mattress. Some beds have low-cost padding will "matt-down", causing a "body-impression" in the spot where you sleep each night. Better quality beds use upholstery foam, memory foam or even latex to prevent this.
Pillowtop mattresses were "invented" in the 1970s when soft waterbeds became popular. It's hard to remember, but all beds used to be plain and really firm. The pillowtop idea allowed manufacturers to sell spring-ier, soft innerspring beds, hidden inside extra padding. Today's pillowtop beds are much different. The better beds are very firm, with a bigger layer of padding to make them comfortable.
Pillowtop beds are a popular choice at our Palm Harbor mattress store. That's why we display so many different models. Better quality pillow top beds are double-sided mattresses, just like the traditional, firm beds. A mattress that you can flip & rotate will generally offer a more consistent sleep "feel". We have "No-Flip" [single sided] mattresses that are engineered to last for many years too.
Ultimately, the only consideration is: What bed is comfortable for you [and your partner]. No advertising slogan, or salesman can select the "right" bed for you. Visit the Clearwater Discount Mattress
