This product is not well made. The first time I put the cover on the bed it ripped by the seams around the zipper area- which makes the cover useless for creating a barrier for bedbugs. Also, the zipper came right off and there was no way of getting it back on.
I did not realize when I purchased this cover that it was like a " bag" so it was a chore for me to put it on my king size mattress. Plus the cover creates an intense amount of heat when sleeping which causes me to have to get out of bed to it can cool down. This may be good for my husband but is uncomfortable for me. I would not make the purchase of another one.
Terrible product. The concept is great however the quality of the product is cheaply made. The padding is almost non existant and it does NOT fit up to 12" maybe 8 at best. When I tried to get it onto my mattress, which also has a 3 in. foam topper it did not fit, was VERY hard to even get around the top of the bed to start putting it on and the plastic lining on the inside of the cover ripped and when I finally got it to the bottom it was not big enough to even pretend to be able to zip even with the extender. Would not buy or even try it again. I am hoping it works out better for the XL twin that I bought for my son for college.
I prefer this type of mattress cover over the regular one. This encases the entire matress which means the corner sections will not pull up and shift the sheets. My husband sits on the corners of the bed which sags them, and pulls up the fitted sheet so this works much better and makes the bed more comfortable. I cannot comment on the protection yet, haven't had it long enough.
Looks like image and arrived quickly. I will say there was a small tear in one of the side seams, about 1 inch, which I was not concerned with but if someone was buying this for bed bugs or any serious allergens that could be a problem. I purchased to keep dirt and dust off the new mattress. Overall a good value and product!
