Over time mattresses can become worn and in need of TLC, but if you are unable to get a whole new mattress to replace your tired mattress then this is your best option.

There are some key features you will need to know more about to see whether it is the perfect topper for you. From the depth to the maintenance and to the straps. They are all deciding factors for your mattress topper.
Having more depth can make your mattress softer, and 5cm is an average size for a mattress topper. It is worth being aware that the depth is before someone lays down on it so the topper will compress slightly at night while you sleep.
Hollowfibre being used is a lot more practical than soft microfibre fabric. Microfibre has minimal space between the structure, whereas hollowfibre is created with more space and a plush feel. This also means they are breathable fibres and lightweight alternatives.
On each corner of the topper, there are elasticated straps to secure it to your bed and keep it in place. Unlike many other choices that do not have any straps and will need a fitted sheet to ensure it does not slide. The straps mean a guaranteed snug fit.
It can be hard to maintain a memory foam mattress topper, as well as feather mattress toppers because they need to be treated delicately. However, with the Rebound mattress topper, it can simply be put in the washing machine and in the tumble dryer on the correct settings.
Some mattresses need the best mattress toppers to upgrade their ability, whether it be giving the mattress a new life, making it comfy, or adding a breathable layer. Dunelm's Rebound mattress toppers are a good choice to make your bed comfortable. It adds a thin layer on top of your mattress to smooth out any discomfort.
As for firmness, motion isolation and support – it is pretty nonexistent – there is a lack of all three. This is not an issue if your mattress already provides you with those three things. However, if that is what you are wanting from a mattress topper then you need to look elsewhere.
We are going to highlight the best features of the mattress topper and the reasons why you will love it. Mattress toppers need to have a purpose and a reason for purchasing.
It may not be for everyone, depending on your sleep style, so here are some of the things to consider.
For those who are combination sleepers or fidget a lot in their sleep, you may still find that the mattress topper moves when you are sleeping. The elasticated straps do keep it secure but the sides can still be lifted, especially as it is lightweight. It can easily be solved by putting a fitted sheet over the top of the mattress topper so everything can stay in place.

Would you prefer a deeper topper than the Rebound? Are you wanting something with extra comfort? Are you a hot sleeper? Take a look at our alternative pick.
A comfortably cool mattress topper that is able to regulate your body temperature, with mesh side panels that allow for airflow to prevent overheating. This topper is available in Single bed size, Small Double, Double, King Size and Super King.
Choosing the Airmax topper will be better for back pain by relieving tension points during the night and by having a comfy thicker depth compared to Rebound mattress toppers.
If this is something better suited for your sleep style then take a look at our full review.
The price for a luxurious feel is a lot less than other mattress toppers, which you can buy in-store or online. It has a reasonable price tag so it is ideal for those wanting a little extra without having to spend all their hard-earned cash. We believe this is one of the huge selling points for these mattress toppers, unlike paying extra for duck feathers.
Another point to note is the elasticated straps. Many of the more expensive toppers (foam or a hybrid topper) will not have anything to keep the topper in place whilst you sleep. This is an essential feature to have, especially on lightweight products.
This mattress topper is not part of Dunelm's Conscious Choice Collection, this is because the materials used to create the product are not sustainable or eco-friendly. It is definitely a factor to consider. Here's why:
If it is something that is important to you when making a decision on what product to buy, we suggest taking a look at their Conscious Choice range to find one that is sustainable.
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, especially when it comes to comfort and support:
When testing the product, we found that this topper was similar to mattress pads due to the thin depth. On their site, it suggests that it is good for relieving tension from pressure points during the night. However, we disagree with that statement but we can confirm that it is soft and comfy to sleep on.
The comfortable Rebound mattress topper is like having a duvet beneath you, as well as on top to keep you warm. Not only is it soft, but the topper can double up as a mattress protector because it is creating another layer between you and the mattress. We believe this is a benefit because the purpose of using mattress protectors is to prolong the lifespan of your mattress, keeping it in the best condition.
A downside during the testing process was when we secured the straps to the mattress and we noticed there was a tear in the outer stitching. So, it may be reasonably priced but that can mean the quality can be lower. It was only a small tear so it will not change the performance of the topper.
You will find more advantages if this product is used on a memory foam mattress, whereas other mattresses with a lack of support will not aid any aches and pains – it can even make them worse.
In our opinion, combination sleepers will prefer a memory foam mattress topper from what they have to offer and how they mould to your position every time you move. But, this is the best mattress topper for stomach sleepers because they will not be sinking in all the wrong places.
There are many pros and cons to consider, and it all comes down to what you are wanting and needing. Think about your position, your current mattress and yourself to choose the best mattress topper.
Now, let's answer some of your burning questions and simplify what you have read.
Back sleepers will find memory foam mattress toppers beneficial, but that is not to say they cannot use the Rebound mattress topper. If their mattress is offering the support they need, then there is no reason why this mattress topper will not help for some added comfort.
As mentioned for back sleepers, side sleepers would benefit more from a memory foam mattress topper. So, if this is a bonus layer for cushioning your bed then side sleepers can use it.
In short, yes. Other mattress toppers will alleviate pressure points, but not ideal points for front sleepers. However, this one will comfort your position.
If you are looking for extra support to relieve tension then we recommend opting for a memory foam mattress topper. The Rebound mattress topper will just provide a comfortable layer.
No, it does not but it is a machine-washable topper for low maintenance.
