I am hard to please when it comes to bed linens. I spend a third of my life in bed and I want to be comfortable. This mattress pad is excellent. I told my husband that my grandparents had a feather bed and this mattress pad reminds me of that soft, wonderful feeling. The construction is top notch and the pockets are deep, fitting our very thick mattress. This is excellent quality at a fraction of what I would expect to pay. You will be pleased with your purchase.
