Cotton Mattress Pad
All cotton, 100%!!!!!
I have many allergies except one is not cotton. This is the first mattress pad that I have found that is all cotton. Not just the top part of the mattress pad but also the reverse of the mattress pad. The best find for me.
I absolutely love it. It is also cooler as it does not make me perspire. I don't wake up in a sweat.

Smells good right out of the bag
I shopped hard to find a new mattress made with more natural materials. Why would I put a synthetic cover on it? This high quality all cotton cover smelled good right when I opened the bag, unlike one from an up-scale home store that had so much poly fiberfill that the care instructions for queen size said to wash it in commercial machine. I returned the smelly one and am very happy with this one from VCS. It washed up beautifully in my home washer. The bedding industry seems to have gone crazy since I last replaced a mattress and cover and I don't consider it progress. Keep up your standards, VCS!

Quality Mattress Pad
I heartily agree with all the other reviews here. This mattress pad has "quality" written all over it. Just received it yesterday. Perhaps just a smidge too narrow (top doesn't quite line up with edge of mattress), but this is hardly noticeable--and if it were more exact in measurement, might stretch out and then shift around too much. Not too thick, not too thin. Actually looks lovely on the bed all by its lonesome. :) Bonus: No weird chemical smells when you take it out of the package. Highly recommend.

At last a mattress pad with sturdy cloth sides!
This is the first mattress pad I have seen in years that has sides and backing made of sturdy cloth. I am sick of buying expensive mattress pads that have sides and backing which appear to be made of paper tissue. The padding is not very thick, but the whole pad is very sturdy and well-made. Thanks a lot.

Good but a flaw
This all cotton pad is a good value, but unfortunately the quilting is all in one direction. Therefore the batting is not prevented from shifting up and down along the quilt lines. If you wash it at all regularly, after a while you will get annoying lumps.
I would still buy it again, as I cannot find a match for the old style pad, with quilting that forms small, stable squares. Larger squares might lump up just as quickly.

All cotton at last!
This mattress pad does not disappoint. It is generously proportioned with plenty of all cotton padding. We got this pad for the guest bedroom. The problem is that everyone else in the household now wants one!

No more lumps
It is nearly impossible to find 100% cotton mattress pads in the stores. To cheapen the cost, manufacturers use synthetic fabric on the underside. Even on the first night, a poor pad manages to slither and lump up under the sheet. We all have our bed problems, but your all-cotton mattress pad has significantly improved my nights of sleep.
It stays in place every night, and now I sleep happily ever after.
