With most traditional coil mattresses, you can flip your mattress every few months to avoid dents, dips, and grooves from developing, but this is not the case with a pillow top mattress. The inability to flip this type of mattress over can lead to deep dents and grooves, and it can also affect your quality of sleep and comfort level, but this doesn’t mean you should avoid choosing a pillow top mattress, as they are quite comfortable and supportive when chosen correctly and cared for properly. Even the best pillow top mattress needs special maintenance to hold its shape long term, so follow the tips below to ensure that you know how to maintain yours correctly.

  • Find a mattress that is made of high-quality materials – High-quality materials are less likely to break down and show wear and tear, are less likely to sag, and will hold up longer over time. If you want the best pillow top mattress, look for one with a foam pillow, latex, or gel top. These are the most durable.


  • Rotate the bed regularly – While you can’t flip your pillow top mattress, you can rotate it, so be sure to rotate it a full 180 degrees every few months. This is especially important if you sleep with a partner, as dents, dips, and grooves are much more common when a bed is shared between two people.
  • Try sleeping in different places and positions – Whenever possible, try sleeping in a different position or different part of the bed. This will help your mattress maintain its shape longer, and it will ensure that one spot doesn’t get worn out before others.
  • Use a mattress bladder – A mattress bladder is a unique tool that allows you to pump up sagging and drooping areas of your mattress by placing it under the sagging spot and inflating the bladder. Your mattress will rise instantly.
