I've had a featherbed for years & always covered it with a blanket under my fitted sheet, which was bulky and the corners popped off the mattress. Also the feathers poked through. I looked around at featherbed covers for a while, and finally decided on this product. Great fabric that is machine washable. The corners of the sheet now stay down over the mattress since it's not as bulky as with the blanket, and the feathers don't poke through either!
If you don't mind getting aggravated putting it on the featherbed.....buy it! It's not bad material wise, but putting it on is a chore and a bit confusing since one and 1/2 sides are open and the cover has button closings in lieu of zipper. I didn't note that when I purchased. Overall, it's OK for the money.
I ordered this to cover the featherbed I recently purchased and it doesn't fit. I decided to wash it first as I do all of my bedding before I sleep on it and it did fine in the wash. Although, when I put my featherbed inside of it, it fits snug on the sides but doesn't extend all the way to the end of my featherbed. I probably just bought the wrong cover to go with my featherbed. I checked the measurements before I purchased them so I don't know why it won't fit. Since I washed it I can't return it so I ended up cutting the remainder of the side that buttons up leaving it open like a pillow case. It covers the portion that I sleep on so I guess it's doing what I need it to do for now.
I was super thrilled with both the sheet set we purchased and the feather bed covers. They are wonderfully soft and a fabulous price. I have been looking and looking locally and could not find anything close to this good at this great of a price. I will shop here again in the future.
When I found this product on line I could not believe the price. I have had several featherbeds in the past and covers for them. The cover is a GREAT value. I purched one and after I tried it I got two more. I have not had any problems with the buttons coming undone or popping open. I wash it often and it is a tight fit so it take alittle work to get it on.
This featherbed is wonderful! I love it. And if you are a FB enthusiast you will love this too! IT stays fluffed for several days and, because of the stitching, the feathers stay put. NO clumping in the corners! Definitely well worth it!
