Pressure Test Results

We pressure tested the Chime 10 Inch Innerspring Pillow Top mattress using a large, medium, and petite-sized model who laid on their back and side sleeping positions.  This way we can learn what kind of pressure relief and back support you can expect from this mattress (learn how we test).

Our pressure testing produced results that were not very surprising, this mattress is recommended for back sleepers of all body sizes and none of the side sleeper positions whatsoever.  The reason for this was that the bed caused entirely too great an amount of pressure on the hip and shoulder joints in each body size.  Nevertheless, this bed did provide exceptional back support for back sleepers.  Back support is necessary for quality sleep because a spine that is out of alignment will cause pain, stiffness, and make for a sleepyhead the next day for you.  Pressure relief is just as crucial because too much pressure, like in the images for the side sleepers below, will cause you to toss and turn to find better comfort thereby disturbing your sleep throughout the night. 

Take a look at the images below, what you'll notice is there's a lot of red areas on the side sleeper's bodies.  These red areas show you where there's an excess of pressure on the body's joints.  The yellow areas mean there's an increase in the pressure on that part of the body while the green areas are where you're getting ideal pressure relief and back support.

The Main Ashley Chime 10 Inch Innerspring Pillowtop Features in Detail

Chime 10 Inch Innerspring Pillow Top

  1. 1. 3/4" High-Density Quilt Foam

    A layer of high-density quilt foam is the plush comfort in the pillow top that feels super soft but still conforms to your body’s curves.  This is the 'hug' feeling that you expect in the plush topper of a mattress.

  2. 2. 2.5" High-Density Body Foam

    Body foam is the center of the soft and luxurious feel that you get in a pillow-top mattress.  It lets you sink in while relieving pressure points cutting down on nighttime tossing & turning.

  3. 3. CertiPUR-US Certified

    All Ashley Sleep foams are independently tested and certified to meet or exceed the highest quality standards.

  4. 4. Bonnell Coil Unit

    Each coil is connected to the other coils that surround it to create a solid support system.  The 13 gauge tied coils flex easily which allows your body to sink into the mattress.

Warranty

The Chime 10 Inch Innerspring Pillow Top mattress has a 10-year warranty against factory defects.

Conclusion

The Chime 10 Inch Innerspring Pillow Top Mattress by Ashley is a very affordable, medium-feeling bed that is also the softest, most plush innerspring model in their Chime collection. Since the mattress has a medium feel, it'll appeal to a wide variety of people.  The back support and pressure-relieving abilities of the bed, however, are ideal for back sleepers. Pressure testing showed that this mattress isn't recommended for anyone who's a side sleeper because of the build-up of pressure in the joints. 

This mattress is lacking in premium materials but it still delivers good comfort. High-density foams give you a plush, soft feel that can be expected from a pillow-top mattress. The Bonnell Coil Unit is a traditional support system that's been used in beds for decades and it functions well with the foams to provide stable support. However, it is not good at reducing motion transfer, so if you sleep with a partner you'll probably feel their movements.

The bottom line is if you really want the comfort of a pillow top mattress but your budget won't allow for an extravagant purchase then this bed is the best choice there is anywhere. It ships right to your home compressed in a 20"X20" box. With all the comfort you can get into a pillow top and the cheaper price this mattress is an excellent choice for the more frugal consumer who's also a back sleeper.
