It may be hard to afford a brand-new mattress, but you know it can improve your sleep quality. Adding the Panda Bamboo Mattress Topper will give your mattress, and you, a new lease of life.

Here at The Sleep Advisors, we like to find products that can solve a problem or two. Whether that is a design feature, eco-sustainability, cost and value for money, or any other deciding factors. With Panda's hypoallergenic mattress topper, those with a smaller budget or allergies or who want a temperature-regulating product can be more than satisfied with what Panda London offers.

The Panda mattress topper is an affordable choice for a new mattress feel and can make you feel like you are sleeping on cloud nine.

“The mattress topper is gentle on the skin, of great value and extremely practical.”

Suits every sleep position

our reviewer testing sleeping positions on a panda mattress topper

If your mattress has reached the point where it is uncomfortable to sleep in any position, it is definitely time to look into the Panda memory foam topper.

It can be hard to adjust your sleep style after finding what works for you, so an extra product might be exactly what the doctor (or sleep advisor) ordered. The topper acts as an additional comfort layer to your current mattress.

Whenever I’m trying out a new product, I like to take the time to test it. As a combination sleeper, the first thing I did was use this topper in different positions.

It's important to me to make sure I can sleep comfortably every time I move in the night. Side sleepers will love it because it aligns your neck, spine and hips. Back sleepers will feel support at all pressure points, which prevents waking up with aches and pains.

Now, front sleepers can also find it comfortable, but I would recommend having the ideal pillow too, to fully feel the comfort and benefits of the topper.

A quick heads-up – you may find that you need to let it bed in. It can take some time to acclimatise, but once you're through that stage, you'll wish you got the topper sooner.

Endless support

Farewell aches, and hello pain relief

Maybe it's the support you are lacking from your mattress and you might think that adding a memory foam layer is not the most suitable solution. When memory foam warms, it can become softer and lose density. However, Panda has found a way to maintain firmness by using open-cell technology. The structure of this topper means the foam stays supportive and dense, and moulds to your body night after night.

So, are you looking to upgrade your mattress to give you both comfort and orthopaedic support, but it is too expensive for you? An alternative would be to add Panda’s mattress topper to tick both of those boxes. You can feel the neck alignment with the hip alignment, keeping your body in the perfect position. I’d happily lie on this Panda topper all day long knowing how relaxing it is… and have done… because it’s my job.

Both breathable and cooling

Now, for those of you who are hot sleepers and find yourself sweating throughout the night, you will all appreciate this cooling mattress topper.

The previously mentioned open-cell cooling technology also improves breathability and allows air to flow freely. The Hydro Foa​​​m™ AKA gel-infused memory foam can keep you cool during the night. Using your own body temperature, the foam works to keep you warmer when it’s cool and cooler when it’s warm. Panda told us this is by “using tiny-heat sensitive capsules that react to your body temperature”. It is such a clever structure! I can confirm I never found myself getting too hot or too cold when lying down on Panda's cooling gel mattress topper.

It helps that it comes with a naturally breathable bamboo cover for an additional layer of bamboo fabric that can allow air to continue to flow to the top of the mattress topper.

The practicality is in the design

My favourite aspect of the memory foam mattress topper is the design. There are details that some will miss when they are actually quite significant. Other toppers shift as you fidget during the night which can be inconvenient, especially for us who are combination sleepers. As well as this, some toppers don’t have a removable cover or if they do, the zipper only reaches around one side of the topper. This makes maintenance harder than it needs to be for this type of product.

Well, we have some good news for you – Panda ensures none of this will happen with theirs.

Removable bamboo cover

Starting with the removable and breathable bamboo cover with a zip that spans halfway around the edge – so two sides can be unzipped. I found it so easy to remove and put back on again which makes cleaning it even easier whilst also protecting your mattress.

Not only is the cover removable, but it has been designed with the intention of being naturally hypoallergenic, naturally antibacterial and kind to sensitive skin.

Anti-slip layer with elasticated straps

On the cover, I noticed anti-slip dotted silicone on the bottom and elastic straps on each corner so it stays fitted to your mattress. I was impressed with how easy it was to adjust and secure the straps, even if you have a deeper mattress! It took me 10 seconds to fully adjust each strap ready for them to be secured – you can have the topper in place in just a minute.

The overall design of the memory foam mattress topper is perfect for cosy spaces, rather than a full mattress. So, if you want to go travelling in your campervan, this is a brilliant idea for comfort.

10-year guarantee, improved-sleep guarantee

When I first thought of mattress toppers, I imagine them to be a temporary fix to an uncomfortable mattress. Of course, it can have that purpose if you have a cheap or bad mattress. A topper will improve the old mattress at a lower cost. However, after speaking with Panda, we discovered that most toppers last a couple of years but theirs will last longer.

This is emphasised by the 10-year guarantee that comes with the memory foam topper. The guarantee is 10 years because they are confident luxury mattress toppers will last you a very long time. As we previously touched on, the eco-friendly mattress topper can seem firm at first but it will become softer over time – the reason they make it firm, is to give the topper a longer lifespan.


The mattress topper is gentle on the skin, of great value and extremely practical. So, if you are a parent of older children and they'll be heading off to university soon, it makes for a great gift for their accommodation. As a previous student, I know that the beds are not always the best so it would be lovely to have the topper to take with you. Or those of you who can’t consider a new mattress with the rise in the cost of living, the Panda mattress topper will get you by for a fraction of the price. You can extend the life of your current mattress with an extra layer, while you save for a Panda Hybrid mattress.
