A full eight hours sleep is something we often dream about, but a deep and uninterrupted slumber can be hard to achieve.

For some the pandemic may have disrupted their sleep routine with "coronasomnia" setting in, and while some experts advise different breathing techniques, and switching off from your phone or TV an hour before settling down for bed, for others a comfortable bed can be the secret to slumber.

Forking out for a brand new mattress can be costly, but investing in a mattress topper can make you feel like you have a new home to lay your head.

One in particular that has proved to be a popular choice with shoppers is the Synthetic Soft Touch Washable Dual Layer 6cm Deep Mattress Topper from John Lewis & Partners.

Why we rate it

John Lewis' Mattress Topper is an easy way to transform your bed and help you settle into a comfortable sleep.

The topper is made from soft polyester and boasts a dual layer, which is split between a base layer to give support and a top layer that adds comfort.

The micro-fibre cover is soft to the touch, but also provides extra thermal insulation when you sleep.

It is simple to use, all you have to do is slip your mattress in the topper's straps and cover with your favourite bedding.

When it comes to doing your laundry, you can wash the topper at 40°C.

The topper comes in a range of sizes to suit all beds, including, single, small double, double, king and super king, although the price varies from £75 to £110 depending on the size.
