We wanted to try this because I was waking up every single morning sneezing and blowing my nose and my boyfriend would wake up with asthma. We did some research and attributed it to a potential dust mite problem with the mattress. We ordered this mattress cover because of the solid ratings and that it was 100% cotton.
We put it on and it immediately fixed the problem. It was like night and day! We both woke up the next morning without any symptoms and couldn't believe how easy a solution it was (especially for how long we were putting up with it!) Couldn't recommend it higher.

Comfortable to sleep on!!
This is really nice for anyone with severe allergies that hates the awful plastic covers that make you sweat. This is totally breathable and easy to sleep on. You don't even notice that it is there. I still get allergies in my apartment, but I think my carpeted floors may be the culprit because they were less sever once I put the cover on my bed and pillows.

Happy with my purchase!
So far so good! I purchased this and four pillow cases. The box arrived today, ahead of schedule (sat) they were supposed to arrive on tues after the holiday weekend. Super soft and not noisy straight out of the package. The zipper looked like a good quality. They are in the washer as I type this, so will update with more details later. I made the purchase due to recent allergy test results and the allergist recommended I purchase encasements for my bedding to help with allergy relief.

Fits perfect on my king size sleep number mattress
Recently found out I was allergic to dust mites along with just about everything else. I immediately ordered the mattress cover as well as the pillow case covers. Fits perfect on my king size sleep number mattress. I did not zip it completely around the top of the mattress as this is where the air lines for the mattress enter so it could not be zipped. I immediately noticed the difference in how well I was sleeping at night - less coughing and scratchy throat. Easy to wash.

Dust mites aren't going anywhere
On the subject of reducing allergy symptoms, there isn't consistent evidence that dust-mite impenetrable barriers of any material reduce asthma or allergy symptoms over time. In the studies I've read they do reduce dust mite populations, but that doesn't make enough of a difference to affect allergic reactions in patients. Check out studies and reviews of the subject on PubMed to decide for yourself if that interests you. The review from the Cochrane Collaboration seems to be the most comprehensive (and contested).
The Allersoft mattress coverings are well made, 100% cotton, and they wrinkle in the dryer, which (I hope) means no formaldehyde wrinkle-resistant coating. They'll keep your bedding clean, won't make your bed warmer, and are easily washed. I like them and I suggest them for those reasons, but I wouldn't expect any product of this kind to have a lasting effect on allergy symptoms.

Fell apart in less than 6 months
I liked this until it ripped open at the seams along the zipper. The quality of the fabric seems fine, and it fits my pillow-top queen mattress fine (with room to spare), and it seems like a reasonable barrier against allergens, although I don't know whether it protects 100% or even made a big difference for my allergies. One person can take it off, but you need two people to get it back on after a wash, as you need to lift the mattress. However, as noted it did come apart along the zipper's seams following its most recent wash--a solid one-foot opening. It can be re-stiched, but obviously it won't be as tight and the barrier is compromised. For this much $ the seams should be bulletproof.

Must-have for mite-allergies and asthmatics
PROS: stopped my nocturnal asthma attacks completely. I no longer require the use of a daily inhaler. Very easy to clean, and fits my padded mattress.
CONS: difficult to place or remove alone

Love this mattress protector!! 100% cotton and has no vinyl at all!! I'm so happy about it!! Washed it and dryied it on low. Did not shrink at all! Very easy to put on the mattress. Took me no more than 15 minutes by myself. Slept so well on it since it doesn't make noise and all natural cotton. Very happy! Will buy another one for my full size bed.

Reclaim your sleep!! Life changing.
This product is a complete blessing. I have been struggling with allergies and severe symptoms for far too long and recently learned that dust mites are to blame. On my first night of sleeping with this cover, I was thrilled not to be awaken in the night sneezing, wheezing and having to blow my nose...not to mention, I didn't wake my partner and I woke up refreshed and rested for once. If you are someone that is suffering from these symptoms, I cannot recommend this product enough. Good sleep can be yours again!! It's cotton, completely unnoticeable, silent, easy to put on, and it's simply effective.
