While I am not surprised considering the price, it would have been nice if this product had been as advertised. Definitely only 14". That being said, the skirt is all fabric and the same color under the bed as the drop. Wrinkles came out (mostly) in a trip through the dryer with a towel.
A nice skirt. I just threw it in the dryer with clothes that needed drying and it took the wrinkles out from the packaging. Also, I put it on the king in my guest room that I had to rotate on the box spring because the mattress was getting worn...so I had to put it on the box spring when it was rotated on it's side. Was not a problem and covered well - can't even tell.
