Part of my disappointment with this product lies with me. When I read that it prevented "bug beds, dust mites, and was hypoallergenic" and was called a mattress "protector", I presumed it enclosed the entire mattress. A mattress "protector" simply cannot protect from bug beds, dust mites, or *keep* the mattress hypoallergenic without completely enclosing the mattress itself. (As a person who suffers from allergies, I know from personal experience that an "open" mattress will welcome dust mites and wreak havoc for allergy-sufferers.) That said, upon receipt of the items (I ordered three) and further review of the product description, it clearly states that the protector provides "complete top-of-mattress protection". To me that is a "mattress cover", not a mattress "protector" and - again - mattress covers cannot protect from dust mites, bed bugs, or provide protection for allergy-sufferers. Regardless, be aware that this is simply a mattress cover, not a true mattress protector.
This mattress protector was perfect! I was given it to use with my LUCID gel memory foam mattress topper, which is 3" thick, but even with the addition to my mattress, it still managed to easily fit over the topper and my bed. The material is soft, breathable and it doesn't make any noise when I move or make sleeping in sheets feel any different than normal. During the summer I suffer from bad allergies, but after using the mattress protector, I have already noticed that they aren't bothering me as much. This mattress protector delivers on all its promises and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a high-quality mattress protector.
Got this for my daughters bed as she has allergies and needed a good mattress protector. This went on super easy. At first it seemed like it would be quite noisy due to the waterproof material, however, once the sheet was put on it was impossible to tell the mattress protector was on. Since we put it on, we have spilled liquid, covered in cat hair and washed it 3 times. It has held it shape and quality, has proven to be waterproof and easily came clean without staining.
I purchased this mattress protector with my new mattress about 3 weeks ago at the recommendation of my allergist. I recently found out I am allergic to dust mites....I was a little concerned that I would feel it, or hear it when I moved around as was the case with the waterproof mattress protector I had when I was a child. This one has been great! I do not notice it is on the matress at all, except for the fact that I no longer have allergy symptoms....
