About Our Pillow Top Mattresses
If you’re looking for the softest comfort feel you can get in a mattress, a pillow top or EuroTop is where you should start. Pillow top mattresses get their name from their thick extra layer of cushioning, which looks like a big pillow that was sewn on top of the mattress. A EuroTop mattress has the same thick layer of cushioning, but it’s sewn underneath the mattress top for a flush appearance.
Pillow top and EuroTop mattresses are great for anyone who prefers an extra soft and cushioned surface to sleep on. The softness of the mattress allows the heaviest parts of the body to sink into the surface. This distributes weight evenly while relieving pressure points, which often cause hip, shoulder, and back pain upon waking. The contouring quality of the soft top layer also helps to keep the spine in excellent alignment.

Learn More About Pillow Top Mattresses
What is a pillow top mattress, and how is it different from a EuroTop mattress?
Pillow top mattresses have an extra layer of padding sewn directly to the top of the mattress. The stitch attaching the extra layer to the mattress cover is placed just before each edge of the bed. If you are having trouble picturing it, imagine a giant pillow resting on the top of your bed. That is where the name “pillow top” comes from! A EuroTop mattress has the same extra layer of padding. Instead of being sewn on top of the mattress, it lies beneath the mattress top. This gives the EuroTop mattress a flush surface, like any other mattress.
Why do I need a pillow top mattress?
A pillow top mattress is purely about your personal comfort preference. If you prefer cloud-like softness that you can sink into, you’ll love a pillow top or EuroTop mattress.
Are pillow top mattresses better than memory foam mattresses?
Both beds have a similar feel, but the support structure of a memory foam mattress is usually different from a pillow top. While high-density foam forms the support layer of a memory foam mattress, pillow-top mattresses usually have innerspring coils as their support structure. The extra layer of padding sewn on top enhances plushness, and it makes the bed more comfortable so you don't feel the springs.
Can you flip a pillow top or EuroTop mattress?
No. Today’s mattresses aren’t made to be flipped, and that’s especially true of pillow and EuroTops. These mattresses have extra padding on only one side. Instead, we recommend that you rotate your mattress 180° every 6-12 months for even wear.
Is a pillow top mattress pad as good as a pillow top mattress?
Not exactly. A pillow top mattress pad is an excellent choice to make a firmer mattress softer. However, it won’t be the same as a pillow top or EuroTop mattress designed specifically for a cloud-like experience.
Will a pillow top or EuroTop mattress help to relieve pain?
Pillow top mattresses provide an incredibly plush sleep surface. However, since they do not usually provide much in the way of spinal alignment support, they may not be ideal for back pain sufferers.
What are the benefits of a pillow top or EuroTop mattress?
A high quality pillow top or EuroTop mattress is going to feel very soft and supple. Beyond that, it evenly distributes your weight. This has been proven to improve sleep quality by eliminating pressure points and other potential discomforts. Pillow top mattresses don't retain heat, so you’ll sleep cool and comfortably all night long.

Are pillow top and EuroTop mattresses good for side sleepers?
Yes. Experts generally recommend a softer mattress for side sleepers, so they don't wake up with pain from too much pressure on their shoulders and hips.
