This is a great product. I thought I was going to hate my new tempurpedic mattress because it was SO hot. The mattress cover has made me love my bed. It makes it actually feel cold when you first get in and keeps you cool all night. Other products like this cost 3x's as much, great buy.
It does hold a topper in place, but good luck if you live in an area where its hot, the cover doesn't reduce the heat by more than 20%... just my opinion... but it IS a good cover for those who can't afford the gel memory foam that has temp control...
I bought this cover to go over the memory foam mattress I bought at same time. my husband sweats in bed and was afraid that this memory foam bed we bought might make him uncomfortably hot. As soon as I took this cover out of the bag, it seems very stiff and made noise as though it was plastic, not cotton. So I washed it before putting on the bed and used fabric softener. It came out of the dryer nice and soft. and it fits nice and snug around the corners of our 8" high mattress. So far, we have not had any issues with the memory foam mattress making us hot (and we live in florida!). Additionally, it's seems to be providing a nice, thick barrier between us and our mattress.
This covers about 90% of the top of my memory foam mattress. I always got hot and would wake up with pools of sweat. I bought this outlast mattress cover which did not aldd bulk and fluff which is exactly what I wanted. I it like a thick extra sheet that goes under the normal fitted sheet. Like any sheet it does move a little but u just freshen it up the next day. The pad gives u a cooling effect for a minute or 2 and does seem to regulate my hot flashes. I also bought the outlast sheets here and this has made big difference. Now the pillow was alwaysa challenge and found the best cooling pillow at polar-pillow.com. This pillow is like awaterbed pillow and stays cool for hours. I never flip the pillow aymote. I LOVE IT. I spent about $300 on these 3 items and saved me from getting a new gel mattress which was at least $1400. So I saved $1100. ANy you gain new sheets and pillows and a much cooler sleep.
I bought this mattress cover because my "breathable" memory foam mattress topper still had me waking up in hot sweats at night. I was worried about the queen/king size being too big for my queen mattress, but it fit just fine. I was excited when I first put it on and crawled into bed because I could immediately feel the difference - it's cool to the touch and gives you that lovely feeling of finding a cool spot in bed. However, that coolness does not last. I woke up in the middle of the night hot and sweating per usual, and that initial cool feeling was gone. It felt like the mattress cover had conformed to my body temperature just like any other typical fabric. This has continued every night, and I'd love to return this product but seeing as I've used it and been sweating on it, that's not really an option. Very disappointing. I would not recommend this product for hot sleepers. On the up side, I have found that removing this mattress cover and simply using the Coolest Comfort Sheet Set, also bought on Overstock.com, works wonders!
I really like this mattress cover. It was exactly what I was looking for- one that would actually fit the mattress with memory foam topper and be of good quality, washable, and not slip off of mattress with every movement. Perfect! Thanks Overstock.com.
very thin material. NOT what I expected. The price is way to high for what it is. Saw NO difference between this and a cheap mattress cover that doesn't claim to keep you cool and dry. Don't waste your money on this item. Do you homework and buy something else.
Sorry, I really didn't like this product. I would have returned it had it not been such a "personal" item, even though I removed it after one night on my bed. I washed it thinking maybe it would improve the feel/fit, but it didn't. I went back to my tried and true bed pad. This item fits loosely and wrinkles up under your body as you sleep, and since I'm the Princess from "The Princess and the Pea" I couldn't stand that.
