Purchase a bed frame that offers center support to prevent the pillow top mattress from sagging and supplying uneven back support. Bed frames that offer support include platform bed frames with a solid wood slab and metal or wood frames with at least two legs on the center support. Beds with wood slabs should have at least five slats of wood spaced 2 inches or less apart.
Rotate the mattress 180 degrees counterclockwise every three months so that the top and bottom of the mattress switch places. This allows for even wear and tear, improving the comfort and extending the life of your pillow top mattress.
Cover your pillow top mattress with a mattress topper to gain the desired support and feel. Pads made from latex or memory foam support the contours of the body, relieving pressure on the spine. Latex foam is firmer than memory foam. Toppers filled with down or polyester fill provide a layer of cushion and embrace parts of the body that do not lay flat on the mattress, such as the lower back.
