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.
I bought this mattress pad to protect our brand-new king-sized mattress from various ill humours like coffee spills, and as far as I can tell, it's working fine in that regard. (I haven't spilled any coffee on it yet). The construction seems fine (I haven't worn out any elastic or torn any seams), and the pad went on easily enough. The material isn't noisy at all, and it's perfectly comfortable. However, I have two problems with this mattress pad. Firstly, it's HOT. We bought a cooling gel mattress, and the pad totally negates the cooling effects. Perhaps in winter, I won't mind so much, but in mid-summer, it was a little miserable. My other problem is that the pad refuses to stay on the bed. Every night before we go to sleep, we have to adjust the mattress pad and fitted sheet because it creeps up at the corners. I can't count the number of times I've woken up with the fitted sheet curled up around my elbow. Far and away that is the most obnoxious thing about the product and the reason it only has two stars. For the price, I really cannot complain too much - I just wish it would stay on the bed two nights in a row.
This item says "machine washable" but the fabric feels paper-like and rather stiff. I was a little disappointed in the quality. I have one on my other bed that looks like this but is softer than this one. It's fine on the bed, so will see what happens when I wash it.
I recently have started to use overstock and all the reviews are what helps me make my purchase so i thought I would start to write some. I ordered a queen size. This fit my boyfriends bed which is a full and my bed which is a queen perfectly! The elastic on the outside is tight so wherever it is put it stays. My trouble with mattress pads in the past is they always come up or off. This is thin but It does the job and fits nicely.
This is an okay mattress pad, would have given it 5 stars but for how long it takes me to put it on. There are no seams to guide you as to which end of the mattress to begin with putting it on. I ordered one several years ago and I thought I was getting one exactly like it, but it wasn't. That one was great, no problems. However, this seems to be of good quality material.
Arrived quickly in package that said Beautyrest. The mattress pad is thick and full and the sides are great because they go all around the bed holding the cover on. No problems at all. I'm very happy with this mattress pad and am thinking I'll order for my other beds. Five stars all the way!
