  • Very comfortable and extremely supportive – if you have a back pain it’ll definitely help – but I’m looking for something softer given my mattress is really firm. I’d say this the topper is 5-6 / 10 on softness scale. (By Olimpia W. on 25/08/2023)
  • I bought the Hybrid Topper to upgrade a functional but otherwise uncomfortable and slightly stiff mattress. It has transformed my sleep experience. It’s improved the comfort of my sleep and I am not waking up achy as I previously had. (By Anna Y. 22/08/2023)
  • Needed something to improve the sleep in our holiday caravan so did a search for the best mattress toppers. The mattress in the caravan was hard and my wife found it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. Not a problem with the Simba mattress topper. (By Ian F. on 17/08/2023)
  • So comfortable and an ideal thickness. It gives our bed a bit more height which is great. Very pleased we purchased! (By Laura B. on 16/08/2023)


  • Have tried this topper for two months now but it’s still way too soft and doesn’t firm up our original mattress at all really disappointed. (By Mel J. on 07/01/2023)
  • Topper feels a little bit too soft and not offer enough support. I bought it to use with a sofa bed and it is an improvement but not as much as I hoped. (By Andrew C. on 18/10/2022)
