Paper-thin, made of the cheapest, flimsiest material. So thin it shouldn't even be called a "mattress pad," more like a "mattress cover." Looks and feels super-CHEAP. I'm very sorry I wasted my money on this useless wisp of fabric, and you will be unhappy, too, if you make the same mistake.
Ordered this to go on top of a mattress that was complained about as being to hard at our lake house. Now whoever sleeps in that bed says it is so comfortable they don't want to get out of bed in the morning. So for that this topper gets 5 stars.
This mattress pad is made of a rough, coarse fabric that is in no way cotton on the top. I have worked with fabric for years and I would swear this is polyester, and a cheap one at that. I ordered this to replace a Beautyrest mattress pad that lasted for many years and had a very soft cotton top fabric. It looked just like the picture, which is why I ordered this one. Shame on you Beautyrest for lowering your standards so much! Returned it.
This item was a waste of my money. It fit over the mattress but once the sheet is fitted over the pad and you lie on it, it slides all over the place. I have removed it already and am ready to discard it. I would not recommend this item to anymore. Don't waste your money.
