I was in need of a new mattress pad for our master bedroom bed, so I was happy to try out this Ellington Home extra soft mattress pad.  The pad comes in a nice zippered-closure plastic case and I like that there is a sample of the material on a hangtag so I can feel how nice the fabric is before even opening it up.  There is a waterproof layer with a bit of a plasticy feel that goes up against the mattress and the other side is a soft quilted fabric that gives a bit of extra cushion to the mattress.  Having the waterproof layer as part of the pad is a big plus to me, because it means that my expensive mattress is protected from staining from sweat or even if one of our cats chooses to throw up while on our bed (not ideal, but any cat owner knows it’s a possibility!). I really like that this mattress pad is hypoallergenic, forming a barrier across which dust mites and other allergens cannot pass. My husband and I both have fairly severe seasonal and dust allergies, so I’m always looking for good ways to cut down on our allergen exposure and this is a really nice way to limit this exposure while we sleep.

I was quite pleased with how easy the pad is to get on our fairly deep queen sized mattress.  The elastic portion that stretches over the side of the mattress has plenty of stretch and material – it would have easily even fit on a deeper mattress!  With the soft padded portion on top, I cannot feel anything from the plasticy layer when I’m lying on my bed at night (some mattress protectors I’ve found that the waterproof portion can have an uncomfortable texture) – I just feel my comfortable foam mattress, which is exactly what I want.  The stitching and fabric seem to be good quality and quite durable and I’m looking forward to using this for a long time to come.


I’m very glad that I was able to order this as a free promotional sample in order to evaluate and provide my honest review.
