 This  mattress topper is composed of memory foam which  enhances any level of comfort that the mattress you are using, offers. The application of memory foam would in most cases would  be considered a negative feature👎 for how the topper handles heat. However,  the Fresh mattress topper uses a trademarked cooling technology which is devised to ensure heat is not trapped in the memory foam which is a common problem with this viscoelastic material. The Coolmax sheet which fits around the topper contains smartly crafted fibres which transfers  away moisture for it to be evaporated. It's excellent moisture-wicking properties  affects its level of breathability. This keeps sweat from accumulating in the material and causing a hot mess🥵 which can be very disruptive for your sleep.  Each of the variations are fairly plush with the Fresh Plus being more softer in firmness than the regular Fresh because it contains 40% more memory foam. This results in the mattress yielding more to your body weight and being very adaptable.  The Fresh topper is manufactured  with allergy sufferers in mind since the materials incorporated in its production counters dust-mite allergens 🐜and reactions to moulds. Since dust-mite allergies are very common, this is a pivotal factor for many.

Dormeo Octaspring mattress topper

Dormeo Octaspring mattress topper, memory foam and five zone support


  •  The Octaspring Body Zone: Medium firmness- 7cm thick
  • The Octaspring Classic: Medium/soft firmness- 7cm thick

The Dormeo Octaspring mattress topper is the most advanced out of the assessed Dormeo mattress toppers in terms of its construction. With the clue being in its name, the Octaspring is fundamentally a mattress topper made up of eight-sided springs.  What is special is that these springs, that exist in their hundreds, arranged in about 20 rows,  beneath the topper cover, are memory foam. This means that the brilliant adaptability of spring construction  is paired with the luxury comfort of memory foam to produce a unique sleeping experience. 🛌The numerous springs are arranged, so that there is what is called ‘5 zone support’.  This means that through the power💪 of zoned-construction, areas of the mattress topper offer more support, due to there being more built-up pressure such as in the hips, shoulders or stomache region, depending on your sleeping position and weight. This  is offset by the softer regions which allow for greater compression and more sinkage into the mattress. As a result you get a highly responsve mattress, literally designed to give  isolated attention to the individual parts of your body. The Octaspring, perhaps also owes its name to the fact that it has been proven to be 8 times as breathable💨 as the typical memory foam mattress topper on the market. This means that heat is not captured and kept to produce sweltering temperatures within the memory-foam spring construction. 


Which is the best in terms of value for money?

Though the Octaspring does bring alot and will no doubt impact your sleep even if you use it on top of an old mattress that is virtually useless, it can be considered quite pricey in relation to the other Dormeo mattress toppers. Excluding  seasonal discounts, the Aloe Vera mattress topper and the Fresh are close in price, 💲 but   the Fresh seems to offer the most for what it costs.

Dormeo Octaspring mattress topper, analysis of composition

Each of the Dormeo mattress toppers have special elements that come with their construction. They each excel in terms of their moisture wicking qualities, thermal regulation and responsiveness due to the memory foam in each of them which is not held back by the usual heat problems of memory foam. Although an easily identifiable problem of the Octaspring is that it doesn't come with features such as cornered straps which help secure it to the mattress, it's zoned-construction that brings immense pressure-relief is an indicator of a finely crafted mattress topper🧐, so it gets our vote in this regards.
