Euro top mattresses are technically a type of pillow top mattress because they have additional padding to enhance softness. However, they are different from standard pillow tops because the extra layer of padding is stitched beneath the mattress cover rather than sewn to the top of it.
A Euro top’s craftsmanship levels the comfy layer with the edges of the mattress, creating a stacked and uniform appearance. It also eliminates the gap and v-shaped indent found between the extra layer and mattress cover in conventional pillow tops. No gap in material means less room for sinking and more room for padding, resulting in a thicker more supportive bed.
Benefits of a Euro Top Mattress
- Unlike pillow tops, there is no gap or v-shaped indentation to sink further into because Euro tops are stitched beneath the mattress cover. The construction results in a more supportive feel.
- Better supported by the bottom layers of the mattress because they lie directly atop them, making them less likely to shift out of place. They are also protected by the mattress cover, enhancing durability.
- Designed to be even in width with each layer of the mattress, offering better edge support and a cleaner look.
