I bought these shams to fit very full 26X26 pillows. The shams are still too big!!! I am washing then now to see if they will shrink. The fabric is fine, what you would expect for cheap pillow shams. BUT the color is so ugly. I got the "Grey" and the first thing my mother said when she saw them was "Looks a little prison." The color is very flat and the trim flops all over the place. I spent way too much money for what I got and would have been better off buying any crappy fabric and sewing the pillows into it. At least the covers would fit.
These shams are ok but not great. They really need a bigger pillow size than the 26x26. I used the 26 inch size and the whole thing is real floppy. The edges of the sham do not stand firmly. The pewter color was nice but overall I was disappointed.
I was not willing to pay $XX/sham, so I was thrilled when I found this product! You get what you pay for - the quality of the fabric could be better. The gray is also much lighter than pictured here. I'm still happy with the product and the price I paid for it.
