I just bought two of these for my XL twin beds. They came out of the wash looking good, I air dried them and then put them on the beds. Perhaps other reviewers put them in the dryer and they shrunk to a shorter size? At any rate, mine fit onto the XL mattresses, no problem. Did the job, for a great price.
A though this is a low-end pad, I didn't expect it to shrink so much after initial washing. Maybe it would have fit right out of the box, but it is advisable to first flush out the unregulated chemicals these overseas manufacturers often use. After washing and machine drying, it was a real struggle to stretch it over the mattress. Would be nice to find a U. S. made product.
I have recently found to have bed bugs they were in the mattress and boxspring i was completely unaware that we had even had them i wound up getting rid of the whole set and purchased a new mattress and boxspring decided to buy the ae encasement for mattress and boxspring so far we've been able to rid the room of bugs but just to be safe and able to acually sleep again i figured why not better safe than to purchase new set all over again so far they've been great and comfortable i placed one over the mattress and used a mattress cover on top its pretty comfortable and i'm hoping this will work

For mattresses up to 17" deep....the full size works very well for a Queen....
Great product! We needed two for our 6" and 8" deep queen mattresses. To find out if the product meets our needs we bought only one for the 8". It fits loosely but we are OK with that. We still needed one for the 6" deep queen mattress and believe it or not the FULL size cover works perfectly. Who knew?

says 17 inch matress will fit but our 14 inch was a struggle.
it took 2 adults over 20 minutes to shimmy this over our mattress. although designed for up to 17 inch mattress our mattress of 14 inches provided enormous struggle to shimmy this to the top of the mattress. when we finally got it there we discovered the zipper ( thas what keeps the bugs in) was now on the bottom of the mattress and not easily accessible.. so just let it go for now..negating the bed bug protection. instructions would have helped... would not suggest buying again
