These shams are exactly as pictured and they give my bed that fresh luxury that only white linens can. I ordered the white and beige in a Queen for my King pillows because I like them fluffy and the fit it perfect for the fat pillow look I wanted.
Nice looking - cotton is a little thin, my pillows have a colored panel around the outside that you can see so i will have to get a white pillow cover to hide this. Otherwise quite classy looking! I got it w white trim so it wasn't overbearing
I love shams as my pillows do not come out the case. I love the cable embroidery. I got it in white and it just adds a little extra pretty. They hold up well and wash well. I ordered these some years ago and they finally went into the rag bag. I was so excited that they still had them. This time I ordered the standard and the king size.
The fabric and detailing are nice. However, only 3 start because on the picture it shows the embroidering to be on the edges of the sham and not on the edges of the middle section where the pillow area is located. I wish it was on the actual edges because it would look more elegant.
I used it with SwissLux Decorator 28x28-inch Euro Square Pillows (Set of 2) and it fits perfectly. Been washing it 2 times and it still looks beautiful. It gets wrinkles right out of the dryer but I use steamer to iron it and it has back to its original state.
