I bought 2 of these bedskirts, so far I have only used 1. It was so easy to put on our king size bed, I did it alone. I did not have to remove the mattress, just slide it over. It looks beautiful. I will use the other one in the summer. Great buy!
I'm not sure what the negative reviewers were looking for....this is SO much better than typical "big white fabric in the middle" bed skirts that always look unkempt unless the bed is in a guest bedroom and never used. It stays in put nicely, and if it moves, there is no reason you can't readjust it. No ugly white fabric or gapping as it shifts around. Easy to install....especially if you aren't quite a perfectionist like me, and just want the ugly box spring to be covered without lifting the mattress or having to wrestle those awful normal bedskirts.
I have an high boxspring and mattress so I wanted something that would be long enough. What I didn't realize is that this bedskirt is actually 3 panels that you secure with twist pins into the boxspring so you are able to adjust the height. It includes a dvd on how to install. It looks great when finished!!
I ordered and recieved it in 3 days if that! I have a king bed. The material is high quality, hangs beautfully! It fits perfectly. Ok.. I have to tell the truth. I have guests coming this weekend and I was relunctant to read the instructions again. I wanted to put it up fast. WOW! I put it on my bed in 5 minutes. ( I will use the pins next weekend when i get a chance) but I did not have time and simply snuggly inserted each sleeve under the mattress sides and it hangs perfectly. Our king is sooo heavy that I may not have to use the pins. What a GREAT, skirt. EVERY bedskirt should use this technique and the price was ever better. SO THRILLED!! GREAT material also. THANKS SO Much. BUY it .. you will be thrilled at the cost, material, and most important, ease of putting it on your bed!
I didn't fully understand what the "Hike up" was all about until I opened the package. The bedskirt fastens to the boxspring with coil-like pins and allows to adjust the length of it. It also comes in separate pieces for each side of the bed, which is a great feature if you need a split corner bedskirt and because it doesn't go under the mattress it can also be used when you don't want to cover the bed rails, along with it not shifting due to movement of the mattress. The fabric is very nice and the color is true to what is seen on the screen. The fasteners have the disadvantage of allowing the skirt to droop a bit, however they do provide extra fasteners to make it a tighter fit.
I really like this bedskirt. The description was accurate and it seems to be good quality. I have a very, very heavy latex king size mattress so it is just about impossible to install a regular bedskirt on the bed. This bedskirt I just had to pick up the very edge of ithe mattress and slip the bedskirt under. It was easy to get the pins in also. Would definitely buy again.
This bed skirt was easy to attach to the box spring! So much easier than the old one piece style. I have a bad back and it is impossible for me to lift a king size mattress. Being able to slightly lift each corner of the mattress and attach the bedskirt pieces helped simplify the process.
We just received the bedskirt about 1 week ago, but so far it is nice. You should know that it is only 16-INCH, NOT 17-INCH. The package even says "16-INCH," so I really don't know where Overstock got "17-in." That is ok with us, since 16-in was exactly what we were needing. If you need a bedskirt longer than 16-in, you should look for a different bedskirt. Also, I didn't realize that it wasn't a 1-piece bedskirt; it comes in 3 pieces: 1 foot and 2 sides. Each piece tacks onto your box springs, which is more convenient, especially if you have a heavy king size mattress like we do. It looks very nice, of high quality, and the chocolate brown color was true to the picture. I would definitely recommend it to someone looking for a 16-in bedskirt, especially on a budget.
