  • Zippered mattress protectors, also known as encasement protectors, cover your mattress in full and can be zipped and unzipped easily when it comes time to wash or change them. They provide efficient protective covering that securely and safely covers the entire mattress. The size of a zipped mattress protector is particularly important because it is designed to totally encase the mattress. It can't be stretched as much as a fitted mattress protector can.
  • Elastic strap mattress protectors are the easiest to put on. You simply attach the mattress protector around all four corners of your bed with the use of an elastic.
  • Fitted mattress protectors are similar to fitted sheets in that they slide over the sides and corners of your mattress while remaining conveniently removable for washing or changing bedding.
