Eve Mattress Topper Review UK (2023)

Last updated: 31.10.2023 Reading time: 4 Min.


The UK is home to many top designers.

So it might not surprise you that the super stylish Eve mattress topper was designed in London.

But what was it like resting atop this beauty? 🤔

And how did it measure up to its competitors?

We answer all of these questions - and more - in our Eve mattress topper review.

Let's take a stroll down memory lane! 👣

Eve Mattress Topper

The best UK Eve mattress topper alternatives

Unfortunately, the highly-rated Eve mattress topper is no longer available.

Before we get into what to try instead, let's briefly summarise what the Eve topper was like.

This medium-firm foam mattress topper offered excellent orthopaedic support, moulding to the body, reducing pressure points, and providing a more comfortable night's sleep. 🤗

It was also more breathable than traditional memory foam mattress toppers.

Luckily, there are plenty of similar alternatives to the Eve mattress topper for those looking to add a touch of comfort to their mattress.

Our favourite foam mattress toppers:

Eve mattress topper composition

The Eve mattress topper was one of the best mattress toppers in the UK. 🏆

It was composed of the same luxurious materials used in the Eve Original mattress, which is still available for purchase!

The Eve topper consisted of 2 layers:

  • A top comfort layer of open-cell foam (2 cm / 0.7 inches)
  • A sturdy layer of ultra-resilient reflex base foam (3 cm / 1.1 inches)

The top layer of open-cell foam was the EveComfort layer.

This was 30x more breathable than traditional memory foam, allowing for a cooler and more comfortable sleep. 😴

The base foam layer, on the other hand, was soft, breathable, and offered more support for sleepers.

Eve mattress topper composition
The Eve mattress topper featured 2 foam layers.

Both foams were also CertiPUR-certified, and the top cover carried the OEKO-TEX-Standard-100 certification. 🐼

These certifications guaranteed all foams were free from harmful chemicals and toxins.

This two-foam design isn't all that common, but the Emma Flip topper is similar with one softer and one firmer side.


How comfortable was the Eve mattress topper?

Before diving into the specifics of the Eve topper, let's quickly cover mattress topper comfort basics. 👇

Firstly, mattress toppers don't have a standard level of comfort or firmness.

The degree of comfort you'll feel from a topper is actually largely dependent on the mattress it is placed upon! 🤯

If you're sleeping on a terrible mattress, a mattress topper won't magically improve how it feels.

What did the Eve mattress topper feel like?

The Eve mattress topper was particularly compatible with any Eve mattress.

But it could also be used with any other quality mattress, like the Simba Hybrid or the Nectar mattress, for a similar feeling.

The Eve mattress topper added a feeling of soft comfort to mattresses. ☁️

Like most memory foam mattresses and toppers, it provided soft, pressure-relieving support.

Providing softer comfort

The Eve mattress topper was best described as a medium-firm topper. 😴

It was particularly effective at softening a too-firm mattress.

Spinal alignment
Side sleepers need a softer mattress that allows their shoulders and hips to sink deeper.

Mattresses that are too firm can cause lower back pain, especially if you're a side sleeper.

This is because harder sleep surfaces don't let your hips and shoulders sink in deeply enough, resulting in excess pressure and misalignment of the spine.

Toppers like the one from Eve add a soft upper layer, allowing for more sinkage when you're sleeping on your side, and so enhancing optimal spinal alignment. 😀

This added layer of softness also ensures that you wake up without shoulder or lower back pain.

While the Eve mattress topper can no longer provide this comfort, plenty of other mattress toppers can do the same thing.

The Tempur mattress topper is one of the thickest and most luxurious options, offering unmatched comfort for side sleepers.


Providing orthopaedic support

The foam-crafted Eve topper also offered superior orthopaedic support.

Memory foam moulds to your body, giving body-hugging comfort. 🤗

The foam Eve mattress topper also helped reduce pressure points, allowing the muscles to relax fully.

The Eve mattress topper offered body-hugging support.

It was an ideal choice for those who struggled with a bad back or had any orthopaedic concerns.

But a mattress topper won't solve all your problems

While the Eve mattress topper provided more comfort and cushioning, it couldn't solve all mattress problems. 🙁

Sagging mattress
A mattress topper can't help if your mattress is sagging.

For instance, the Eve mattress topper wasn't firm enough to make a mattress feel firmer.

Ultimately, mattress toppers can only do so much as they rely on the support of the mattress.

This is not the case just for the Eve Sleep mattress topper.

If your mattress is old, worn out, or sagging, no topper will make it more comfortable or better for your spine. ⛔

It's best to invest in a brand-new mattress if yours has developed significant issues like sagging.

You can find some excellent recommendations in our review of the best mattresses.

Our favourite Eve mattresses:

Did the Eve mattress topper have good temperature regulation?

The Eve mattress topper was crafted with foam for a body-hugging and pressure-relieving feeling

Most foam toppers and mattresses are prone to storing heat. 🥵

However, the open-cell technology used in the Eve topper promoted airflow.

This airflow meant the Eve topper was 30x more breathable than traditional memory foam. 💨

Enhanced breathability prevented the topper from storing body heat, allowing for a cool and comfortable sleep.

So the Eve mattress topper was generally considered better for hot sleepers. 🥵

Perfect temperature
The open-cell technology used in the Eve mattress topper helped keep sleepers cool and comfy.

Of course, Eve Sleep isn't the only company to have created a cooler foam topper.

Many sleep brands have found innovative ways to reduce heat retention to create a better sleep environment. ❄️

For instance, the Panda London mattress topper uses a breathable gel-infused memory foam.


If you're a very heavy sweater and still wary of memory foam, you could also try out the Simba Hybrid mattress topper, which features springs for even better air circulation.

Was the Eve mattress good for couples?

Besides offering a more comfortable sleep, the Eve mattress topper also helped dampen movements and reduce motion transfer.

Motion transfer refers to how much movement is carried across a surface.

Low motion transfer means movements are effectively absorbed and not carried across mattresses or toppers.

Low motion transfer

Couples often prefer materials with low-motion transfer since these mean you don't feel every movement of your partner, which makes sharing a bed more comfortable. 🕺

The Eve mattress topper helped dampen movements, even without a low-motion mattress.

If you're interested in a low-motion transfer topper, you should know that most good-quality memory foam mattress toppers have similar properties and will work just as well for couples.

The Hypnia mattress topper, for example, features 8 cm (3.1 inches) of memory foam for enhanced motion transfer reduction.


Eve mattress topper cover

The Eve mattress topper cover came in the characteristic white-and-yellow design of the Eve Sleep brand.

It was made of:

  • 100% two-way stretch polyester on the top and sides
  • 100% polypropylene base panel

The removable top panel was machine-washable at 40°C, and the use of a tumble dryer was not recommended.

It was best to follow these instructions since no Eve mattress cover replacement was available.

The Eve topper cover was hypoallergenic and great for those prone to allergies. 🤧

The cover was also naturally flame retardant, without the need for chemical fire repellants. 🔥

Sturdy straps to fit your topper

The cover also featured sturdy straps to help attached the topper to the mattress.

The bottom straps also held the topper together once rolled up, making it easy to store or carry.

Eve mattress topper carrying handles
The sturdy straps could also be used to carry the Eve mattress topper.

If you're looking for an alternative mattress topper, we'd recommend looking out for one with a washable cover, preferably with straps.

Washable covers are great for those concerned about hygiene or allergies. 🤧

One of our favourites is the Panda memory foam topper with its machine-washable cover, anti-slip base, and elastic corner straps.


Having said that, a machine-washable cover is not the be-all and end-all!

It's actually more important that you use a mattress protector since these, usually waterproof, sheets can be easily washed and dried. 🧼

They act as a barrier, protecting your mattress and topper from the outside world and all its dust, dirt, spills, and sweat.

Eve mattress topper sizes

The Eve topper was available in most standard UK sizes.

  • Eve mattress topper single: 90 x 190 cm (3’ x 6’3”)
  • Eve mattress topper small double: 120 x 190 cm (4' x 6'3")

The only topper we've seen available in more sizes than this is the Panda mattress topper, which comes in 9 sizes, including standard UK and European sizes.


How thick was the Eve mattress topper?

The Eve mattress topper had a standard depth of 5 cm (1.9 inches).

This depth is fairly standard for a high-quality mattress topper, with the Panda and Emma Flip toppers also measuring 5 cm (1.9 inches) in depth.

Once rolled up, the topper had a dimension of 34 x 35 cm (13.3 x 13.7 inches).

The Panda memory foam mattress topper is a great alternative to the Eve topper for those searching for the perfect topper.

It is the same thickness, available in even more sizes, and is widely considered incredibly comfortable.

The Eve mattress topper was a premium topper. 🏅

While not necessarily the cheapest, it offered good value for money and was on par with other premium mattress toppers, like the Simba Hybrid mattress topper.

What else does Eve Sleep offer?

However, it still offers some high-quality mattresses and sleep accessories, including pillows and bedroom furniture. 😊

The Eve mattress range includes:

If your current mattress has seen better days and you're considering what to get next, we'd recommend checking out Eve mattresses.

The Eve Original, in particular, is of excellent quality and reasonably priced.

Eve mattress topper delivery conditions

The Eve mattress topper was delivered free of charge within three working days.

While the Eve topper is no longer sold, other Eve products are still available for delivery throughout mainland UK.

Your order can be delivered either to the door or to the room of your choice, depending on the item's weight.

Details may vary according to your area, and additional rates may apply.

Unpacking the Eve mattress topper

The Eve mattress topper was delivered rolled up and compressed in a box. 📦

It simply needed to be taken out of the box and the plastic wrapping removed, and then the compressed foam would slowly expand.

Some off-gassing was normal when unpacking the Eve topper.

This chemical odour is typical of bed-in-a-box memory foam mattresses and isn't toxic or harmful, though it may be a little unpleasant.

The Eve mattress topper often produced off-gassing, a harmless but unpleasant chemical odour.

It is good practice to open any memory foam toppers or mattresses (including the Eve mattress topper) in a well-ventilated room.

Eve mattress topper trials and returns

The Eve mattress topper came with a 30-night risk-free trial period.

This gave you the chance to try the topper at home for 30 days. 💃

Trial periods are ideal as they allow you to test a product over time, letting your body get used to the brand-new feel and determine if it's the right fit for you.

Woman with questions
Trial periods allow you to test the product and either return or exchange it if you don't like it.

While you can't enjoy the Eve mattress topper and its 30-day trial now, there are some excellent alternatives.

For instance, the similarly priced Emma Flip mattress topper offers an impressive 100-night trial! 🤯


Eve mattress topper returns

In the past, those not fully satisfied with their Eve topper could send it back for a full refund.

Returns were free of charge. 💰

Luckily, this is also true of other Eve Sleep products, where Eve organises and pays for the returns process.

Eve mattress topper guarantee

The Eve Sleep mattress topper was designed to last.

It came with a 3-year warranty. 🥇

If your Eve topper was of unsatisfactory quality or deteriorated from everyday use, Eve would replace it for you.

While the topper is no longer available, Eve mattresses still come with an assuring 10-year guarantee.

Should you buy the Eve mattress topper?

The Eve mattress topper was an excellent value-for-money mattress topper worth investing in.

It was well suited to back and side sleepers, people with back pain or orthopaedic concerns, and those needing more comfort and softness on a firm mattress.

Unfortunately, the Eve mattress topper is no longer available in the UK.

But there are plenty of other similar mattress toppers to choose from.

Frequently asked questions

  • What happened to Eve mattress?

    Eve Sleep, founded in 2014, went into administration in October 2022.

    They were then bought out by UK bed retailer Bensons for Beds.

    Now, Eve Sleep is back up and running.

    Eve mattresses are available for purchase and can be delivered throughout the UK mainland.

    However, accessories like the Eve mattress topper are not currently being sold. 

  • What is the alternative to Eve Sleep?

    Eve Sleep is a stylish UK brand, but they're not the only one.

    Simba is one of our favourites.

    It has several mattresses to choose from and compared well in our Eve vs. Simba comparison review.

    Panda London, a cute, eco-friendly UK brand with a similar mid-range price point, is also a good alternative, especially if you're looking for sleep accessories.


  • Can I buy the Eve mattress topper on Amazon UK?

    Amazon in the UK used to sell the product as "Eve the mattress topper" or "Eve memory foam mattress topper".

    Unfortunately, the product has since been discontinued.

    Now, the Eve mattress topper is no longer available on Amazon or on the Eve Sleep website. 

  • Can I put the Eve mattress topper on an Eve mattress?

    Technically, yes, but it would depend on why you're looking to add a mattress topper in the first place.

    If your mattress is old and worn, you need to invest in a new one.

    But a mattress topper is a great idea if your mattress is just a little too firm and you're looking for extra comfort.

    The Eve memory foam mattress topper was a great fit for a pocket spring or hybrid mattress, like the Eve Premium Hybrid.

    Unfortunately, the Eve topper is no longer available.

    If you want a similar topper to add comfort, we suggest checking out the Panda mattress topper.

  • How do I fit the Eve mattress topper?

    If you need Eve mattress topper instructions, look no further.

    The Eve mattress topper was designed for easy fitting.

    Its convenient straps fit around the mattress and kept it in place so you could toss and turn all you want.

  • How long did it take for the Eve mattress topper to expand?

    Typically, Eve mattress toppers took between 2 and 6 hours to fully expand.

    However, this expansion time would depend on factors like how long the topper had been in its packaging.

  • How do the Panda and Eve mattress toppers compare?

    The Eve mattress topper and Panda mattress topper are both UK-made foam toppers.

    Each of these toppers also features a more breathable, cooling design, which helps keep warmer sleepers cool and comfy at night.

    The Panda bamboo mattress topper uses cooling gel-infused technology, whereas the Eve topper uses open-cell foam to improve breathability.

    The two toppers measure 5 cm (1.9 inches) thick, with washable covers and straps to keep the topper secure.

    However, the Panda topper is cheaper than the Eve mattress topper - and it's still available!

    Those looking for a cool and comfortable mattress topper still sold in the UK should check out the eco-friendly Panda topper.

  • Do I need a mattress topper?

    A mattress topper is an excellent idea if you want to add a little more comfort to a firm mattress.

    However, a mattress topper cannot fix a worn, old mattress.

    If your current mattress is worn and sagging, then, unfortunately, you will have to buy a new mattress.

    You can read our mattress reviews for some great recommendations.

    Alternatively, if you're merely looking to extend the lifespan of your mattress and protect it from dirt, stains, spills, and bacteria, then it's best to opt for a mattress protector.
