I love this mattress pad. It's not too thick which would make you sink too below the bed. Yet it's just thick enough that you feel comfortable and well supported in it. I bought it for my dorm twin bed. The size doesn't fit exactly, but the rubber bands were very helpful at adjusting the pad to the longer mattress that I had. Have used it for half a year. I'm guessing it will last for a long time. Would buy the queen version for my new apartment. Great quality and great price!
