This mattress cover is amazing. We have had the same mattress for ten years and just don't have the money to get a new one. Our neighbors suggested this cover. They have had theirs for two years now and still love it. We ordered it very easily through overstock and it arrived in five days, was easy to open and let unfold. I was very happy the company labels the outside, "do not open with a sharp object" because I surely would have cut the mattress if I didn't see that first! We had to leave it in the spare room for an additional two weeks, treat it with dryer sheets and let it air out. It is extremely stinky at first. We left the windows open and the smell went away. After two weeks we are now able to sleep on the mattress. It was definitely worth the wait. Our backs and hips no longer hurt when we wake up. It is like a brand new bed! We can sleep soundly all night! Now, we need new pillows!
