I was very excited to receive the featherbed as the reviews were good. After only a few days the ends of the feathers started coming through like needles. Even after adding a mattress cover. Had to pull it off. Feathers sticking through everywhere, between the featherbed and the mattress cover and between the featherbed and the bed. Overstock was great and sent me a shipping label for returning it.
This is a great featherbed. I've been sleeping with a featherbed for many years and can't imagine going back to just the mattress and a mattress pad. There isn't a mattress pad that can give you the same feel and comfort. I shake and rotate mine weekly to fluff things up.
This pillow top is very comfortable but the feathers are coming out of the pillow. I tried to put a comforter on top but the white feathers keep coming out. So , we have to pick up feathers every morning. Don't know if this is normal but doesn't seems 'hotel" quality.
I had tried other, a bit cheaper featherbeds and experienced less than satisfactory results. I have bursitis in my hips and these other featherbeds caused me a great deal of pain. strangely enough. I had pretty much given up the idea of having a featherbed on my bed but decided to give it one more try. This featherbed is great! It doesn't cause me any pain at all, keeps me nice and warm and with the elastic bands to hold it in place it works just great. I highly recommend this featherbed.
I tried a memory foam matress, but I still had problems with a broken rib cage. I got a king size and folded it in half for a twin hospital bed and it works perfect. I now sleep all night. I just ordered a queen size for my bed. This is better than a memory foam bed. Other feather beds are $2200.00
