I absolutely LOVE this mattress pad. I looked at mattress toppers, down, down and feather, down alternative and read the reviews and just had a difficult time in making a decision. My own experience has taught me that down, feathers and even down alternative can bunch up when washed. So based on that, the good reviews on this pad not to mention the price finally sold me. I am very pleased with this product and may even get one for another very hard bed we have. Thank you Overstock for your quality items.
