We recently purchased a new bed set and mattress set. I had an inexpensive mattress pad on hand, so I used it for 2 months. Needless to say, it did not hold up to my husband's tossing and turning. I then purchased this matress pad from Overstock and was pleasantly surprised at how incredible it was! The padding is way thicker than I had imagined from the photos, the pockets are so deep it totally covers our new, very thick mattress, and the fabric is so smooth and soft, sheets don't stick to it, they glide. I have purchased over 50 products from Overstock in the last 5 years, and I am still amazed at the quality of products they offer at such a great price. You can't go wrong with this one!
