RECCI is a popular bedding company whose products are available primarily through Amazon. They have accumulated a massive number of positive reviews in both the UK and the US on their products. Frequently being up on Amazon’s best sellers lists, they have built a great reputation for good quality products at extremely reasonable prices.
Reviewers on Amazon rave about the mattress topper’s ability to rejuvenate an old mattress and its ability to ease sleeping pain. With over 75% of reviewers leaving a 5-star review it has been received incredibly well.
In the US, RECCI does offer a wider range of products, including mattresses and other bedding related products. Currently, only the mattress topper and a couple of their mattress protectors are available in the UK. While both are well received, the mattress topper is our focus in this review. It has a memory foam core measuring 5cm deep and a bamboo cover, more importantly, it is an extremely good price.
We have taken a closer look at this mattress topper in the review to see what makes it one of Amazon’s most popular.

Construction and Materials
Recci states that the topper has also been extensively tested to contain no formaldehyde, mercury, lead or heavy metals and so is free from any chemicals that may cause harm to the body. It is also certified by CertiPUR-EU and OEKO-TEX for durability, contents and performance. The core of the topper is also 100% pure memory foam.
Recci has chosen a super soft bamboo viscose cover for this topper. It has a diamond pattern which makes it stylish but also promotes good airflow throughout the topper, helping regulate temperature better.
RECCI Mattress Topper Layers:
1. Bamboo Viscose Cover Layer
The stylish bamboo viscose cover is a great boost to this topper. It promotes excellent airflow and good moisture absorption to help regulate body temperature and prevent overheating in warm weather and getting too cold on colder nights.
2. 100% Memory Foam Core Layer
Using memory foam in a topper is a tried and tested method of creating a good product. It is well known for its heat-sensitive pressure relief and moulding effects. Reviews state that the memory foam is excellent at easing existing pains as you sleep and make an old mattress much more comfortable. Though traditional memory foam has had problems with overheating, the bamboo viscose cover is designed to help prevent this.
Comfort, Support and Sleep Quality
This topper is not too thick that it overpowers your existing mattress but thick enough that it compliments it nicely. If rated on firmness it would lie around a medium-firm or a 6-7/10. It provides a great moulding effect that supports the key joints and helps relieve pressure around them. This may help prevent aches and pains from developing as you sleep. With the topper not being too overpowering, it should suit all types of sleeping positions. The topper should mould around your needs as you sleep and keep your spine well-aligned. This is weight and height dependent though and outliers in these may have different experiences.
The use of traditional memory foam can come with overheating problems due to its heat retention. To combat this, Recci uses the bamboo viscose cover to promote high levels of airflow and moisture absorption. This should do an excellent job in keeping you cool and many reviews are agreeing with this. It is something to keep in mind if you sleep too warm though.
A bonus of using a memory foam topper is that it reduces motion transfer across the mattress. Memory foam is a great option if you are frequently disturbed by your partner’s movements through the night, or if you are a generally light sleeper.
Trial And Guarantee
The Recci memory foam mattress topper is available to be returned within 30 days of purchase, for a full refund, if you do not like it. This gives plenty of time to be able to fully test it out. The mattress topper also comes with an extended warranty period of 10 years, however.
Delivery of the product is handled by Amazon. This means that free next day delivery is available to those with Amazon Prime. When you first receive your memory foam mattress topper it will be vacuum packed in a small package. Once removed from the packaging it will rapidly expand to its full size and should be ready to use within a few hours. When first opened there may be a strong chemical smell. This is from the memory foam core and is completely normal with memory foam products. If you keep the topper well aired for a few days then this smell should completely disappear.
The RECCI mattress topper is available in a wide range of sizes, these are:
- UK Small Single (75x190cm)
- UK Single (90x190cm)
- UK Small Double (120x190cm)
- UK Double (135x190cm)
- UK King (150x200cm)
- EU King (160x200cm)
- UK Super King (180x200cm)
Hovering just over £100 for this topper in a double is incredibly good value. Considering some competitors are charging a couple of hundred for a similar mattress topper. The build is very simple but should not be overlooked as it is effective at providing a comfortable, pressure-relieving sleeping surface. The bamboo cover is great at temperature regulation. If you have had problems with overheating in the past though then keep in mind the traditional memory foam core will still generate some heat. Using a memory foam only core does make it extremely durable, however. It should last through many years of use.
Also worth thinking about is that this mattress will not revive an old mattress completely. While it will give an excellent boost and can make a tired mattress very comfortable. If your mattress needs replacing then sometimes that will be the better choice.
Amazon handling the delivery and returns make it a very efficient process and there are no real complaints in this department.
Overall, this is an excellent product for the price. It will be a great choice for you if you are looking for the following:
- A well-priced topper that will provide a comfort boost to your mattress.
- A simple, yet well-built mattress topper.
- A topper that has an extended warranty and a good returns period.
