I highly recommend this product. Here are the reasons why: I had a featherbed and cover previously, and I was so frustrated with it that I gave it to Salvation Army. I LOVED the featherbed, but keeping it anchored on the bed was a feat in itself. I have a king sized bed. The cover I had was a button-down cover. Getting the featherbed to sit inside the cover correctly was an arduous task. The featherbed was always rolling around on the bed. So, I started placing it under the sheets. Even with deep pocket sheets, the sheets would pop up. So, I tried to find mattress straps. Nope, this idea did not work either. I recently broke down and bought another featherbed because I have fibromyalgia and I need it for my pressure points. I was so happy to find this cover. I also found some sheets with deep enough pockets to cover the featherbed in the guest room, so I ordered them for my bed. Then I found THIS Featherbed protector. Oh my goodness. It is like having an extra mattress pad cover. You zip up your featherbed, and then you have a band to secure all the way around the mattress, just as you do your mattress pad cover! Then I am able to fit my extremely deep pocket sheets over it, and voila, I'm happy! This is exactly what I have been looking for about five years now!
This is referred to as a fiberbed/featherbed cover. When I got it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's actually a mattress pad, with a built-in featherbed/fiberbed cover. I didn't see anywhere in the description (and maybe I somehow missed it) that this thing actually does have a generous skirt to hug the mattress, and the underside of this cover seems to be made of the same material as most mattress pads/protectors. The actual "cover" part unzips on 3 sides to make the insertion of the featherbed or fiberbed very easy. The top surface is a nice quilted soft cotton. I haven't washed it yet, so not sure how it'll hold up...but so far it has exceeded my expectations...which is kind of rare with online purchases.
Accommodated my very plush,full,down featherbed (King) easily. Love the fact that the zipper zips nearly all the way around. The zipper can be tucked as not to poke through or be felt under the fitted sheet. Super soft,washes easily and has extra deep pockets. Comes smelling brand new which had my room smelling new for days! Love this item so much that I am now searching for products under this brand name.
While this is a California King size mattress pad, the fitted portion is far to deep for our Sleep Number bed mattress. This was apparently made for the newer very deep mattresses, thus it does not fit snugly. Otherwise a good buy for the money which is why I did not return it and will just tuck and use elastic gripper snaps to keep I place.
