John Lewis Luxury All Cotton Quilted Mattress Protectors
A piece of luxury
I hesitated over the price of this mattress cover, but am so pleased I gave in. It is the most comfortable cover I have bought and will be changing the others on my guest beds. The feel is both luxurious and cosy and I even think I sleep better! Don't hesitate, buy it!

Kingsize - does need a large drummed washing machine
I have two of these mattress protectors and have had to admit defeat. In Kingsize they are really very bulky and i can only just squeeze one into my washing machine, which doesn't seem very optimal for actually getting it clean. I am ordering the slightly thinner versions simply for this reason. Otherwise, i have found them to be excellent.
My washing machine has a normal size drum (7kg i think). With a large drum it would probably be fine.

Just as good as reviews say
I have an airbed for use by guests, and I wanted to make it more comfortable by putting a good mattress protector on it. While the price of this one made me hesitate, the more I shopped around the more I felt that it would make the airbed seem like a real bed.
So I finally took a deep breath and bought it. I was really impressed with it and so was my first guest. I am now using it on my own bed and it has made it much more cosy and comfortable. It also doesn't slip around and bunch up like most other protectors. I am very glad I bought it.
It's true: You get what you pay for.

Really lovely mattress protector which fitted our super king bed like a glove. Excellent quality. Very pleased with the purchase.

Shrinks after wash
Bought a king size and double size. Washed at 95c as instructed, but thye both shrank and warped to such an extent that they leave 2-3inch gap from the mattress edge. Contacted John Lewis and was sent replacements. Washed these at 60c and they both shrank again, but this time they had brown rust-like spots all over them. Having read other reviews it would seem other have experienced the same issues too.
They look and feel like a quality matress protector but they are quite simply no tfit for purpose. Avoid if you want a matress protector that covers right up to the edge of the bed (shrinkage is about 6inches which really is an unacceptable tolerance).

Superior matress protector
More expensive than I would have paid in the past but I read the reviews on line and thought it worth a try as most were positive and I have to say it is the best matress cover we have and relaly is luxurious so worth the extra dosh!

A really good night's sleep
Very comfortable indeed. Doesn't slip in use. Cool on hot nights.
BUT be warned - don't try to wash anything other than a single yourself. This is the first time I've washed my kingsize only to find out it weighs a ton (or feels like it) when you bring it out of the washing machine. I wish I'd taken it to my local cleaner/launderette. I think the labelling should reflect this as it's only your website that recommends a large capacity washing machine - in my opinion this should be printed on the attached fabric label.
I just hope I can get it dry and it doesn't shrink as some reviewers have said.
