It can be difficult shopping around for a mattress for everyone in the family – so, what if we told you Panda London has one that suits all needs? Their mattress can be a solution to any problem.

The Sleep Advisors continuously look to find products that will be able to help solve any issues you may have while trying to sleep. So, a mattress that can tick all the boxes by being supportive, yet comfortable, highly breathable, yet temperature regulating, and eco-friendly is always a win. Well, we have found the Panda mattress which is great for all types of sleepers. It is the only Panda mattress that they have spent years researching and combining science with nature. Panda London claims to have created the UK’s most breathable Hybrid Bamboo Mattress – and here’s why we don’t disagree.

Let us tell you all about our experience with Panda's premium quality mattress.

A lot of layers, but so what?

With a total of six layers, the marketing of their luxury mattress can read a bit like The Princess And The Pea.

However, each layer is carefully engineered to give you a better night's sleep from the very first night. I took a peek inside the removable cover to see all the layers that are used and couldn’t wait to see how well they worked together. Where memory foam is known for heat retention, Panda has counteracted this by using fresh bamboo. The cover is made from bamboo fabric and the top foam layer is infused with bamboo. Nature provides the answer to other design challenges too, as bamboo isn't just temperature regulating. It is also odour-resistant, anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic and has moisture-wicking properties to pull moisture away from your skin at night to leave you feeling fresh.

The perfect mattress for every sleeper

Wonderful for pain

Those with back, neck or chronic pain will benefit from the Panda mattress because it'll relieve the pressure points. Using it with a Panda pillow will keep your head supported and in alignment too. Panda Hybrid mattress can be suitable for everyone – back, front, side, hot, cold sleepers – you name it, they'll love it. The mattress fits many solutions but we want to focus on it being an orthopaedic mattress. I felt the mattress was pretty firm when I first laid down, but then it soon contoured to my position. This firmness comes from the core OrthoAlign Foam™ layer, which is basically a high-density foam that supports and aligns the spine.

The reason Panda London only offers a firm mattress is that it will take much longer to sag and flop, compared to other mattresses. Keeping it firm makes it last longer which makes it really great value. It won't lose effectiveness as quickly so you won't be swapping it every few years.

Incredible comfort

There’s no need to be concerned about it being too firm, so you don't need to look into getting the mattress topper as well. Your mattress will provide you with comfort.

There is an upper BioCell Foam™ layer, utilising open cell technology and infused with bamboo. In short, this is what makes the mattress super comfy and helps to regulate body temperature, alongside the bamboo cover. Your mattress will provide you with ideal comfort as all the layers work together. You will have the best sleep as I felt myself sinking into the top layer, but caught by the next layer to support my whole body. It’s like a squishy marshmallow on a firm biscuit base. The dream combination.

Control the movement

Those who share a bed with a fidgety partner will experience the benefits of the seven-zone spring support, with up to an impressive 1500 pocket springs. It is the layer of the mattress that isolates any movement whilst your body remains supported. We know how annoying it is when you're trying to sleep and the person next to you keeps moving around – then nudges you awake. This is where the springs take control so you will no longer be woken up by constant movement. No more kicking your partner out of bed to go sleep on the sofa.

When trying it out, I found the mattress was quick to mould to my body. Therefore, the only movement is where the pressure points are, so unless you or your partner are taking up the whole mattress, there's no reason for you to feel motion transfer.

Keep it cool and allergy-free

our reviewer sleeping on panda's hybrid mattress

Say goodbye to allergies at night.

As someone with hay fever, I know all too well about allergies being set off whilst trying to sleep! Thankfully, the whole mattress is a naturally hypoallergenic mattress due to the bamboo. The zip-off cover on the mattress is easy to keep fresh, it can just be popped in the wash (and you can still sleep on the mattress without it, while you wait for it to dry!). Bamboo can be soothing for various conditions often irritated by other bedding fabrics – I found it to be very soft and gentle on the skin.

Allergies aside – we briefly touched on overheating and when talking to Panda, we were impressed to find out that the cooling mattress has got excellent breathability and keeps everyone cool. This makes it perfect even for those who are sensitive to heat, such as women who are going through the menopause. It is rare to find a bedding brand that focuses on this, but it’s certainly welcome. You will no longer have to worry about night sweats and being too warm during the night.

Delivery with a smile


Order, sit back and relax.

I experienced quick delivery and once it was dispatched I was notified every step of the way. When ordering from Panda London, their ‘white glove’ mattress delivery service comes as standard, at no extra cost. So, put your feet up, have a cuppa and scroll through your Facebook feed while they do all the heavy lifting – that’s precisely what I did. They will take the mattress to your room of choice (typically the bedroom…) free of charge, so I didn’t have to lift a finger to get it up the stairs. What makes it better is the other free options they can offer.

The options include:

Chosen-day delivery – find what day suits you best and they will deliver.

Room-of-choice delivery – any specific room of the house you need it in, they will drop it there for you.

Old mattress removal service – if your mattress is taking up space and you haven't had time to bin it, Panda will ensure it's recycled responsibly.

Even after you have unpacked your mattress, they can take any packaging with them to keep your bedroom tidy so it's ready to sleep in. There was nothing else I needed to do. Just simply make the bed and carry on working for the rest of the day. Everything they offer is free of charge to help you and the environment, whereas other brands will charge for these services.

Eco-friendly resources and beyond

Panda is turning up the heat for bigger companies with their core values (and we know it's not heat coming from their mattresses). They have achieved an eco-friendly mattress, along with their other award-winning sleep products. Now it's down to the rest of the industry to match their eco-credentials.

Did you know Britons throw away more than 7 million used mattresses each year?

At Panda London, one of their core values is being eco-friendly and creating their bamboo mattress was a part of their commitment to a better world – especially as it's sustainably sourced. Although their mattresses are made to last a long time (unlike others lasting a few years), they have a Circle of Life programme for when it's time for your Panda mattress to retire. Panda will organise a free collection, and recycle any materials to create something new. This is such an innovative idea to close the loop of production. It is better for the environment, better for you and better for Panda.


Grab your duvet (prepped with Panda's beautiful duvet cover, of course). Throw on your favourite two pillows… And voila, your bed is ready to be slept on. The mattress can take a few hours to expand and you will experience slight off-gassing – which is completely normal! However, you can leave it to air out overnight and jump in the next day. Trust us, with the Panda Hybrid Bamboo Mattress, you will be all set for endless nights of luxurious bamboo-filled sleep.

About the author

As a CPD certified Sleep Consultant I know how important sleep is. And as a combination sleeper, I have found it difficult to get products to suit my sleep style. I have more than 2 years product testing experience with The Sleep Advisors which means I have slept on, with and under more than 500 products with varying degrees of success. This is added to more than 2 years experience as a product reviewer for Closer, Heat and Grazia magazines, so I've got a rigorous process. I love sharing my sleep testimonials with our readers and hearing their experiences too.
