I purchased this mattress cover about 1 year ago. I had not even put it in the laundry yet when the pocket gave and split. It must have been old and in stock somewhere for a really long time to have dried up and split. I only had it on my bed less than 1 month. After going into the washer and dryer, it completely fell apart a split from every side. Also it kept sliding on the bed, never stayed put and in place for more than 2 nights. The top was nice and fluffy, but whatever material they use for the pocket is truly lousy, I had to trough it away after one month of use, it really was not worth the money. I would not recommend it to any one, unless I was unlucky and got an old piece.
