When I first got it, I loved it, THEN I washed it as per instructions, I tried to place it on the mattress, it seemed a little tighter than before. Each time I laundered it got tighter, until with arthritis in my hands it became impossible to use.
This mattress pad is great. I laundered it using the direction on the package (no/low heat) and it fit wonderfully on my FAT pillowtop mattress. I mention that because there are some reviews on here complaining the pad shrunk.... FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. I would order again.
So glad that I purchased this mattress pad! My last one was from a dept. store and after washing, kept coming off. This one is made for a pillow top, deep mattress. Very soft on top. I will follow the washing directions and wash in cold water and dry on low heat since some previous reviewers have complained about shrinking. I received it quickly and am very happy!
If you are JUST looking for a mattress pad to protect your mattress, this is fine. But I wanted a really comfortable padding for my bed, and this didn't really do it. It's very thin and doesn't have as much padding as I thought it would.
Bought this king-size mattress pad in 2005. Right now, it is on the bed, but will be retired as I have bought a new bed which needs a bigger mattress pad. After 6 years, this mattress pad has one little hole. It has not gotten bigger since a dog's toenail snagged it years ago. I hope to find another just like this one.
