Mattress pads?

In the market for some new mattress pads. I want something with a little pouf to it, not just a flat mattress cover. No memory foam stuff. Just a simple cotton mattress pad with poly filling that is pouffy. Any suggestions?

I got THE best ones 7 years ago but can no longer find them. Everything since has been a big disappointment in terms of how they fit on the bed, how pouffy they are and the material it usually 'noisy'.

They don't have to be waterproof.

Ralph Lauren mattress protectors that I bought were reasonably priced, thick, stitched to hold the filling, and stood up well to a lot of laundering.  I got them at TJ Maxx.

we have mattress toppers which are feather and down - but they are sort of sewn in squares so the filling can't move that much.

This one is sewn in squares, too, but all the stuffing along the outside edge shifted right up to the edge. So, it's not flat, it all bumpy. Makes the bed look unkempt.

I've been sleeping on this one the last few months and really like it. (it's really a topper, not a pad)

But at 2-1/2" and $88, it may have more pouf and cost than you're looking for.

That looks like the one I have on my bed. Problem with the one I have (and the reason I have it instead of it's being in the inn) is that  the filling has shifted to the edges so you have to 'climb' out of the bed!

Same with the one we have. It's pocketed so I don't think the contents shift, just get squidzed flat.

We've got a feather and down matress topper on our bed, it's really lovely to get in/on to. It's very warm though.

I was about to say, be careful of the ones you can run your fingers through the edging (not the topping) material, that is one I have on two beds and looks in tatters because I stuff my fingers through it trying to straighten it on the bed.

I buy all kinds and have not found one that doesn't stretch out and stay nice over time.

Yeah, and that's the problem. Some of the ones I have from 7 years ago have holes in the edges. But not too  bad. I did get some last year but they were so noisy I took them back. They had really lousy side panels as well.

(I watched the housekeeper today putting one on the bed. She started at the bottom of the bed and was stuck in the corner trying to pull up the pad.)
