TV Shop takes me for a ride again
Firstly I wrote a similar review for TV Shop, they did not include it on their site.
This product is the most expensive waste of money I have ever made, even though I got 2 for 1 after a fight to do so. It has no sides, just straps at each corner, so it moves a considerable amount. It just seems too soft, having no support, meaning it takes quite a lot of effort to move around or just sit up, at no time did the sales agent offer me any variety of firmness. It unfortunately took us a little while to get it out of its box so we missed the return period, and it would have cost an arm and a leg to send back anyway.
Great in the beginning, but sags over time.
The Bambillo mattress topper is an expensive investment. When I first got it, it was super comfy and a dream to sleep on. Doesn't slip off the mattress, and easy to wash the covers.
But after a year of use, it started to sag, and does not plump up again. This is causing me back pain. It would have been a great product if it lasted more than a year.
Purchased in October 2017 for $799.00.
Fake bambillo topper??
I don’t think I got the real bambillo topper, got mine from tv shoppers , my topper doesn’t have the printed bambillo logo on it, only a tag, as anyone else find it strange? I really hate to think I paid $800 for something that is not what it’s supposed to be,,
Has shrunk in size
Ive had mine for less two years. Ive washed the machine washable cover 3times & now, its shrunken at least 3inchs from Queen size, to more Double. Also, straps are useless.Mine broke two months aftr purchase.Rang TV shop as im pretty sure the integrity & structure shouldnt be compromised after washing? Sent photos etc, nothing..

Fell asleep for Hours after installing! - Makes you a Sleep-Addict!
It is not a cheap addition to your rather expensive mattresses and I ordered two of them to size King Single at the supplier the TV-Shop. The service was very friendly and my order arrived by Australia Post surprisingly on a Saturday Morning, an unusual fact unknown by Australia Post. The Bambillo Mattress Topper was very well packaged and I was surprised that the rather large item was delivered in a reasonable small carton. The product was well manufactured as far as I could see and the finish of the removable and washable cover was excellent....The product was unpackaged in no time and the Bambillo Topper was installed on my bed without any difficulty or complication. It was a very hot, typical Australian summer day and I was rather tired. Nothing better, I thought trying out the new Bambillo Mattress Topper and I had a snooze. It was very comfortable taking place on the new Bambillo and my rather too hard existing mattress tormenting me about a year or so had a new chance to get me into sleep. Unfortunately, my snooze was so comfortable that I fell instantly into a deep sleep and woke up after seven hours refreshed by an excellent rest. As I live "high tech" my Fitbit Ionic supervised the sleep and I was surprised looking at the statistics that I did not turn and toss around as I used to do. The sleep was deep and even. I am more than happy that the old torturer, my existing mattress is no longer capable of putting me on the wheel and making my sleep a struggle and a painful awakening. I am very happy with the Bambillo Mattress Topper and with my new achieved deep sleep and with this I have a good start into the new day.
Very Comfortable but we did not get any anti slip pads or corner tapes
Found it very soft and comfortable but we did not get any anti slip pads or corner tapes - so nothing to hold the mattress topper in place. This is not good for those who move around a lot. No instructions in box at all or how to look after it. Very poor - had to go online and find out what I could. Hope it lasts well as it has made sleeping more pleasant so far.

Crap, not what it is hyped to be
Thought it was exactly what the doctor ordered at first however it sags exactly like a worn out mattress after 6 months and I believe my back is worse than ever. Very difficult to turn over in bed and is very hot in summer.

Don’t buy. Absolute not worth the money
Fell apart in washing machine wouldn’t buy if you paid me ring and send messages and arcs for refund just spoken to Rudely by TV shop And ask for a manager to ring me back never get nothing back terrible experience.
This is unbearable;toxic smell from topper
I purchased bamboo mattress topper,was told by assistant when buying it,it wont have toxic smell like pillows,which gave me asthma and breathing and headaches,i wouldnt recommend this as i have just waisted $100on this,heat from my mattress came straight through,even though its meant to be a bamboo product,what a scam,they dont care ,just take your money.
Slips off mattress
The single topper is only 3cms thick which is 4cm short of the 7cm advertised thickness. The cover over content does not have the Bambillo trademark - is it the genuine product? The cover also slips around and the topper slides off bed as elastic straps do not firmly hold topper down on mattress. Topper retains body heat so unbearable in hot weather. Difficult to turn body while in bed. Very disappointed as bought this to assist with long term bed confinement. Contacted supplier and have received no response. Never will purchase a Bambillo product and will not risk TV shopping ever again. $400 spent - $40 value received.
DISLIKE - HAS CAUSED PAIN & SCIATICA
Loved it initially (have had for 1 month) but am in severe pain now throughout the night and can barely move in the mornings. It's difficult to change positions and this has given me sciatica down 1 leg plus severe back pain! I am crying out with pain when I try to change positions. I don't look forward to going to bed at night as I am now in so much pain. The pain subsides considerably during the day. Very disappointed.
I have mine since June 2017 so far so good could be improving on the elastic
I am at a loss at the pricing charged me close to 700 and yet now the offer is 2 for the price of one makes you wonder what the real cost should be if they lower the cost they may sell as many maybe more

Questions & Answers
Would love to know the density of the topper (not the thickness) and how many people find it slips and slides about. Also does it smell badly? I know memory foam smells for a bit till aired out but is it strong or mild smell.
Hi, density is fairly firm, it does move around a bit but we have placed a mattress protector with full sides over it and it keeps it in place, we have not had any smell issues.
