What is a Tight Top Mattress?

A tight top mattress typically has a firmer feeling than most other mattresses because its top upholstery layer is separated by only a few inches from the coils. However, some models are made with plush materials to create more comfort. It does not have the additional cushion you might find on the surface of a pillowtop mattress. Instead, a tight top mattress is constructed with a pulled-down upholstery layer that is built in to the top of a mattress.

Benefits of a Tight Top Mattress

  • The design creates proper support while lying down thanks to its firm surface.
  • A tight top mattress provides softer comfort in models made from plush materials.
