This mattress topper does not mould to your body shape therefore it is not adaptable. It is naturally hypoallergenic due to the cover being 100% cotton and super soft. If you find a memory foam mattress topper to be too firm, this is a great option for you to feel comfortable.
When your mattress is a little too firm and could be improved with a soft-filled mattress topper, you can use this product to change the feel of your bed – it is a securely fit topper. It is the ideal solution for extra softness while having an extra layer between you and your mattress.
There are a few key selling points that you should be aware of before purchasing the Dorma mattress topper. From the cotton cover through to the recycled polyester filling and to the elasticated straps on each corner. So, depending on what you are looking for, we have summarised some of the top features of this product.
With a thread count of 230, it is the optimal count for a product to remain soft and of good quality – especially with cotton. Using cotton for the cover keeps the product hypoallergenic and breathable which is ideal for hot sleepers.
It fits mattresses up to 30cm in depth so there is no reason why it cannot be secured to your mattress. Some mattresses can seem too deep for mattress toppers to be used, but this one will not add much more depth – only a few centimetres.
As previously mentioned the elasticated straps can reach around mattresses of up to 30cm, so it is suitable for a deep mattress. You will find that some mattresses do not have this, which makes them more liable to sliding on the bed.
This mattress topper has cassette construction which simply means the stitching is used to form a grid/box. Having this keeps the filling in its own area so it does not move around the topper. The filling has even distribution across the whole mattress topper to help with the longevity and overall performance of the product. Being filled with spiral recycled fibre gives the mattress topper a plush bounce.
While polyester is not the best material for the environment, Dorma uses recycled fibre from waste – eg plastic bottles – to reduce how much is going into landfills. It is part of a process to keep the products sustainable whilst still being durable. The fibres in this anti-allergy mattress topper are coated with Aegis Microbe Shield Technology to help prevent any bacterial growth.
The purpose of this Dorma mattress topper is comfort over support, and after testing it we agree. It will not feel like you have a brand-new mattress, but it does have the ability to give you a good night's sleep. The softness gives it a luxurious feel while you are sleeping and smoothness over any bumps you may have in your mattress.
In terms of motion isolation and pressure relief, the Dorma mattress topper does not impact or change the performance of your mattress. If you are using it on a medium-firm mattress that can relieve pressure, then you will feel those benefits through these mattress toppers. However, if your mattress is super soft and comfortable, you will be getting even more comfort when using this product without any extra support.
The cover being cotton does keep the mattress topper breathable but overall I would suggest using this mattress topper in the colder months rather than when we have warm nights. It will definitely keep you cosy and warm if you get cold during the night – especially being sandwiched between the topper and your duvet.
As a summary, we have narrowed it down to three points that you should take away with you when considering this product. Here they are:
Depending on what you are searching for, you will find some disadvantages to using this particular mattress topper. We found that:
You may find that the mattress topper can still move when you are in bed because there is no grip on the base and the sides are not secure. However, it is easy to solve this by using a fitted sheet over the top to keep everything in place.
The design can be uncomfortable so if you find this true for you, your best bet is to try putting a fitted sheet over the top to smooth it out. While others found it cool to the touch, others felt it made them hotter in bed so an additional sheet could help with that too.

A mattress topper can help to relieve joint pain or regulate your body temperature, and it can be hard to find the best mattress topper for you. Some provide comfort while others provide support. We know the Dorma mattress topper gives you comfort, but it may not be enough so we have found an alternative that can give you that little bit extra.
This product may seem similar to the Full Forever mattress topper, and that is because it is. They are some of the best mattress toppers for a comfy night's sleep.
However, this one is deeper so can provide even more comfort than the Dorma topper.
The toppers feel super plush with extra softness, filled between the internal walls to keep it plump. This mattress topper is labelled as hypoallergenic due to the cotton – which also makes it soft to the touch.
The Deep Sleep mattress toppers are not as crisp as the Full Forever so you can have a quiet sleep. And in terms of price, the Deep Sleep is firmly in the budget-friendly category!
The only downsides are that it doesn't have the best motion isolation and, just like the Full Forever, it doesn't have a removable cover.
The Dorma Full Forever mattress topper is the perfect choice if you are wanting a product to smooth out any lumps in your bed or to hide any uncomfortable springs, without changing the purpose of your mattress. Many mattress toppers can completely transform your bed, whereas this one will give subtle improvements. With a memory foam mattress topper, you may find that they can be too firm for what you are looking for.
The mattress topper is part of Dunelm's Conscious Choice collection which is full of products that are more sustainable. This product in particular is made from recycled polyester and
Not only is the Full Forever mattress topper in the Conscious Choice range, a large number of their products feature in this collection. Dorma is making sustainable choices, using sustainable materials to become a better brand.
Every product we review needs to be tested by us to give you the most accurate observations to decide on which product is the right one for you – in this case the right mattress topper. To put it broadly, these are the tests:
However, to break it down clearly, these are the tests every mattress topper will undergo in order to make comparisons:
In our opinion, the Dorma topper is more like a mattress pad than a mattress topper, this is due to it being a thin pad-like layer instead of inches thick as you would find with a memory foam mattress topper or feather mattress topper. This does not mean it is not a suitable mattress topper for you. After testing, we can confirm that it is the ideal product for smoothing out any discomfort in your mattress.
If you like the firmness of your mattress, you can still feel the mattress underneath this product so it is just a case of an additional layer rather than transforming your mattress. However, if you need a lot of padding to balance out your mattress, you may need to look for an alternative with a larger depth.
Being just a few centimetres deep, we do not think it will be full forever' because the fibres will wear down after long use, so it will need to be replaced every couple of years. It might be worth investing in a more expensive choice that will last longer if you are wanting a long-term solution, rather than a budget-friendly one.
It is not the best for moisture management for those who are hot sleepers, but it is one of the best mattress toppers for easy cleaning and low maintenance – no need to wipe with a damp cloth, simply pop it in the washing machine.
Whether you are after a Super King or a Small Double, there is a mattress topper for every bed that will provide you with softness and keep you warm – it is like having a duvet underneath you when you cosy up in bed. Combination sleepers – do keep in mind that it is very crisp and rustles when you move at night.
