This is a good example of "you get what you pay for." It's a great Value for the money spent BUT if you are looking for a mattress pad with some cushion/padded top - this is not the product for you. It is great, though, if you are looking for a plain 'ole mattress pad cover - which is what I was looking for.
I was very unsatisfied with this item. The sides of this mattress pad were as thin as paper -- we found this out when we went to tuck the fitted corners onto our brand new queen size mattress! My fingertips tore right through the batting on the sides. Yikes! :(
I definitely would NOT recommend this product. The only thing on it that is not polyester is the thin quilted top layer of the pad which the manufacturer says is cotton. The batting is polyester and the fitted sides are paper-like polyester which is easily torn/poked through as the mattress pad is put on the mattress. The manufacturer of the pad (Restful Nights) claims that the pad is washable. The pad did not hold up well in its first washing-- more tears in the polyester fitted siding.
These german flannel sheets are the best I have ever purchased. We use them all year around. They last much longer than any other brand I have tried. The price is very reasonable.They are the thickest I have ever purchased too. The only thing I don't like is when they are put in the dryer the lint catcher is extremely full. But I won't stop buying them. Compare to other brands tried I won't buy anything else
