Why Trust Us?

For many sleepers, a Euro top mattress is the closest thing to a luxury hotel bed. Most often, Euro toppers are used on innerspring and pocketed coil mattresses, but other variations can be found on the market, too. What sets these beds apart from others is an extra layer of padding that’s added to the surface.

While Euro tops are technically considered pillow top beds, Euro-style toppers are sewn directly under the cover, while pillow top models stitch the cushion directly on top of the mattress. You’ll be able to distinguish the two by the “muffin top” effect pillow toppers create, whereas Euro tops are cleaner in appearance.

Our Selection Process

Dollar for dollar, Euro top mattresses can be some of the pricier models on the market. In most cases, that means you get a quality bed, but we weren’t satisfied with hypotheticals. So, we went to the drawing board to determine our own Euro top mattress meaning. After evaluating, we found the following factors had the biggest influence on a Euro mattress’s quality.

Mattress Type

Both users and sleep experts agree that innerspring, pocketed coil, and hybrid mattresses are the best ways to enjoy a Euro top mattress. You still have the option of memory foam mattresses with a Euro topper, but like our best gel foam pick, the combination is most successful with a higher support level (details follow below!).


At Mattress Land, we rank mattress support on a scale between 0.5–4.5. The sweet spot is anywhere between 2.5 and 3.0, which is also called the “Goldilocks zone” to best experience a Euro top mattress. While our best overall choice has the least support on our list (with a rating of 1.0), it’s balanced by a firm comfort level, which is further complemented by the Euro top cover for a balance of support, softness, and luxury. For the remaining recommendations, support levels are kept at or below 3.0 to ensure you fully enjoy the softness of their Euro covers.

What Does Support Mean? | How BedFIT Redefines Sleep


Euro top mattresses are one of the least familiar mattress types on the market, which is why many of our shoppers are curious about what they are. Here’s what buyers just like you ask when shopping for a Euro top mattresses.

How long does a Euro top mattress last?

Thanks to their sewn-in design, Euro top mattresses are pretty durable and can resist dipping, sagging, and warping surprisingly well. Overall, you can expect to get a minimum of seven years of use from a Euro top mattress, but with regular care and maintenance, sleepers can get up to 10 years of use from one of these beds.

Quick Guide: How Long do Mattresses Last?

Can a Euro top mattress be flipped?

A Euro top mattress should never be flipped for several reasons. For one, swapping one side for the other will place the fluffy surface at the bottom of the bed, meaning you won’t benefit from its cushioned support. Doing so also compacts the pillowed lining, decreasing its effectiveness and lifespan. In some cases, manufacturers will even void the warranty on a Euro top mattress if it’s been flipped.

However, you can rotate a mattress. Simply turn your mattress 180 degrees to ensure the surface of your Euro top mattress is evenly used, which helps prevent sags and overuse.
