Yes I had to iron it out of the package to be expected. It is after all as described as sheer cotton voile. It also said 15 inch drop, I was expecting to have to put the bed on low risers because the drop is 14 inches on my bed. It fit perfect so I am guessing a person who has a 15 inch drop may find it a little short.
The description and photo for this bedskirt are somewhat misleading -- the fabric is actually quite opaque and somewhat plain. I somehow pictured the bedskirt as being sheer and tutu-like. But then it would have had to be made from tulle and not cotton voile, as the description goes on to say, so I should have paid closer attention to that. However, the workmanship is excellent -- the top of the bedskirt that goes under the head of the mattress is rounded off and slightly fitted to help keep it on the bed. First time I've seen that. I'll keep looking for something a little more elegant.
This bedskirt doesn't look exactly like the picture, but nothing ever does. It is 100% cotton, so of course it needs to be ironed out of the package. It does iron quite easily - no steam necessary. It is not quite as full as the picture, but definitey more than your run-of-the-mill discount store skirt. It is also not as sheer as I expected, but, again, it is still a step up from the usual polyester bedskirt. It is feminine and light, great for French country or shabby chic decor. The corners are split for fitting over rails, and the head is fitted to hold it in place on the bed, a nice feature. Bottom line is "you get what you pay for," so if you don't expect more than that you will be satisfied.
I love the look of this bed skirt. I found it easy to iron and I love the way that it pools only slightly on the floor around the bed. The color was just what I needed. The price was much better than others that I had reviewed before I purchased this one.
These arrived as scheduled, and they are so pretty. I will be pairing them with beautiful bedding ensembles, and they will be just that extra touch that makes the look complete. "Presentation is everything, " is the old saying, and beautiful bedding is just not complete without a finishing touch. So glad Overstock makes that so easy to do with elegant products and fabulous prices.
It's a pretty dust ruffle, however, it looks NOTHING like the picture. I thought it was going to be super sheer and frilly. It pretty much looks like an ordinary dust ruffle, except a little prettier. I honestly love the one in the picture, so I was disappointed, but being said that Iím keeping it because Overstockís return policy isnít the best. And I agree with the other reviews that it's really wrinkled when you receive it!!
