Our opinion on the delivery of the Dunlopillo mattress

Distributor network

It is not possible to order directly on the DUNLOPILLO site. However, the brand has an extensive network of distributors such as bedding specialists or wholesalers. You will find the list of dealers closest to you easily on the internet or directly on the brand’s website: all you have to do is enter an address or geolocate yourself.

Delivery times, therefore, vary depending on the site on which you order. The one we went through offered us a 5-day delivery in Paris and Ile-de-France, or 15 days in the provinces. But on some sites, the delays could be longer.

It is the same for the delivery conditions. On some sites, delivery will be made by a single person at your doorstep and will be chargeable. The site we used offered free delivery and unpacking by 2 people in the room of our choice.

What I like the most

Going through intermediary resellers gives real proximity, which is very appreciated for people wishing to test comfort for themselves.

The brand’s distribution network is pervasive, making it possible to come and test it in a store near you.

Dunlopillo Return Policy

Test the mattress

Unlike online universal mattress sites, you can’t get a 100-night trial period so that you can review the mattress from the comfort of your own home.

If you want to test the mattress, you can go to a distributor near you. But you will only have a few minutes to make up your mind.

Regarding possible returns, you will need to check with the site from which you will know the procedure.

What I like the most

The lack of the 100-night trial is compensated because you can already in-store preview the comfort of Dunlopillo mattresses and get an idea of ​​the type of mattress that would suit you.

Advantages and disadvantages of the Dunlopillo mattress

By weighing the pros and cons, we realize that ultimately, notoriety and the technologies used do not do everything.


The reputation of the brand and its know-how: It is not possible to order online or test it at home.

Cutting-edge technologies used Delivery times are very long

The 5-year warranty. The After-Sales Service lacks responsiveness

There are so many references that we don’t know which mattress to
