The Egyptian cotton is very soft, however the fabric is very thin- lightweight...You may want to trade up for a better quality skirt. (I wanted the Hotel style , on Overstocks site however they didn't have the white available in a queen size.the double pleats on each side of the bed look great. The skirt has kick openings on the front corners as well. Some reviews said this skirt had stripes, it doesn't.
I purchased this skirt May 2014, in King size, Gold color, for a needed color match to a goldenrod color in a quilt. The color match was perfect and as shown in the description, but everything else about this product is subpar. On initial examination of stitching, there were numerous loose threads; the threads were not tied off and when pulled would cause the seam to bunch up. The skirt material is paper thin and transparent; when hanging on the bed, you can easily see the mattress and bed frame through the skirt. The deck material, which is different than the skirt, actually feels more substantial then the skirt itself. I was hesitant about washing it and proceeded carefully, cold/cold gentle cycle and delicate dry, and examined it a second time; the skirt had already suffered signs of wear to include threads that looked snagged, surface fuzz, and color fade. I'm afraid to wash it again; I have zero confidence that it would survive. Product packaging states Luxor Treasures, Single Ply 300 Thread Count, 100% Egyptian Cotton; I have serious doubts and believe the product is falsely advertised.
I just needed a simple white cotton bedskirt. The first time I placed it on, by myself, which as you know, is a very difficult task when trying to place a heavy king size mattress over it, without the bedskirt shifting--- I finally got the mattress on, and went to sort of pull the bedskirt down at the foot of the bed, since it had ridden up under the mattress, and I heard a riiiiip! On one of the corners, it just ripped right apart! I have just tucked it back together, and the weight of the mattress keeps the corners together, but I was disappointed. I don't know if I simply pulled too hard, or if it was poor quality, but either way, it's just an average bedskirt. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on it, and I'm glad I didn't. I'm still using it, I just have to readjust the ripped corner each time I make the bed.
Got it in beige and looks more dark champagne in person, very soft egyptian cotton. Of course wrinklie when washed, but with starch and ironing it looks great! simple design but looks good and neat. the white fabric that goes on mattress is more sturdy than the cheapy paper ones that come with most skirts.
Bedskirts are just not made like they use to be. The fabric that holds the skirting in it's shape and usually stays hidden under the mattress is CHEAPPPPP! It tore very quickly and is right at the hemline of the ruffle, so it shows. The other issue I have is that it is slightly big. I have a king and I ordered the king. The skirting hangs over the box spring just enough to show about an inch of the material that should be hidden. It is no where near as nice looking as the pictures shows. In the picture it seems to fit perfect and look very talored, not so!
Not only was the fabric too flimsy, but I ordered a King Size and they sent a California King. We are in the process of moving, and I had thrown away all the packaging, so I'm stuck with it. My fault, but I do not recommend this product.
