Pillow top mattresses may be the greatest and worst advancement of the bed to happen in the bedding industry. Pillow tops were the answer to the waterbed industries answer to firm mattresses and boards positioned between the mattress and boxspring.

Over time the foam and fiber padding break down leaving the sleeper in a hole in the shape of a body impression with a ridge running down the middle of the mattress. The solution is to look for mattresses that offer high resiliency foams that don’t break down. Such products are being offered by companies like King Koil and Comfort Solutions. Another solution for those who love the feel of pillow tops is to purchase a firmer bed and add to it a replaceable mattress topper.
