I'm not very picky about mattress pads, so just about anything would please me, and this pad is fine once you get it on the bed. But getting it on is a challenge! We just bought a new very thick mattress and I could not for the life of me get this on the bed myself. Part of the problem was that the edge that should hold the corner under the mattress is unfinished so it slips off. My husband helped me and we got it on and it seems to stay in place. It will probably be fine as long as I have someone to help me put it back on after washing it!
