We were looking at getting a new mattress and decided on trying another mattress pad before spending another 1,000+, as our bed is less than 5 years old. I did tons of research and finally after a weeks time decided on this one. It was not a mistake! We instantly fell in love with this pad! Its so comfortable with out being to soft- I really need this due to having such bad back issues. This pad seems to have more durability as well! So glad I chose this pad and thanks again O for not disappointing me!
