Got these for a 16 bed lodge where many different people sleep. We had the plastic ones, but they are really warm and make a noise when you are sleeping on them. These are much better. Haven't washed them as yet so will find out how they hold up.
Some like it soft, some like it firm I realize, this is a very happy medium for me...I have an old-ish mattress that had been uncomfortable for me to sleep on for quite some time and this pad made it so much better. Just enough cushion to be comfy and substantial enough to even out the lumpiness that was bothering me. No plasticky crunching or anything like that, but did the job when my son had an accident in my bed (protected mattress). Good quality for the price, happy with purchase.
We own and operate 2 vacation rental/corporate rental apartments that we fully furnish. 80% of what is in our apartments came from overstock and we couldn't be happier! I ordered 4 mattress pads and only one of this type as I was concerned it might not be comforatable and would make "noise". As soon as o took it out of the package I was impressed! It provides protection and comfort. Just what I was looking for!
I read the other reviews that raved about how great this mattress pad is, and I figured "how GREAT can a mattress pad be?" Turns out it can be pretty darn great, indeed. This feels like a lightweight down comforter - super soft, absolutely NO crinkling (you'd NEVER guess this to be waterproof,) and has a great silky feel to it. I was concerned it might make me "sleep hot" but nope! Feels super good under the sheets and I slept like a log. I love this!
My Mother had to have back surgery and we knew that it would be a very long recovery. -A "spill proof" cover for her bed was necessary for feeding ,drinking, medications, home nursing, etc. This mattress pad has a perfect fit and washes/ dries very easily. Thanks, Overstock!
It's definitely breathable and not crinkly like other waterproof mattress pads. Have not yet put the 'waterproof' to the test; it doesn't look much different than a normal cotton mattress pad. The sides are definitely not waterproof, but sheer and thin. The (queen size) measurements are about an inch short in each direction. If you want excellence, you really do have to pay the price for it.
