I am very pleased with these curtains for my son's room. I got the beige pair but they seem to block the light just fine, although they are a light color. I think they are a bit pricey considering they are just polyester panels, and one of mine seems to be sewn a bit crooked. Still, it is not very noticeable and they were super easy to put up. They have both a rod pocket and loops at the top so you can choose how to hang them.
I purchased these curtains for my 15 month old's bedroom; his room is in the front of the house so he gets full sun right as he is going to bed. We needed blackout curtains that would keep the room dark enough for my little guy to sleep but also wanted a good pair of curtains. I was pleasantly surprised when I received these; they look great, the fabric feels nice and they don't have that cheap looking plastic on the back. The blue color is perfect, kind of a dusty navy and works with his existing bedding from the nursery. Plus, once he gets older, they don't have that cutesy baby look and will be able to grow with him. Have no regrets at all with this purchase!

I purchased a set in both Navy and Beige. The Navy ones black out 100% of the light. The beige ones do not. While they certainly do make the room dark, you can still see a bit of daylight coming through the curtains if the sun is shining directly through the windows. Overall these are wonderful -- they drape very nicely.
I ordered the navy color for my daughter's light blue room and this is perfect! The pictures do not do justice - the real thing is so much prettier than the picture. Unlike regular hard-backed blackout curtains, the material of this one is soft, kind like satin, but thick and heavy. The stars are metallic, at night when there is some light outside of the room the curtain sparkles beautifully. The blackout effect is amazing. It totally blocks the light - I'll say 100%! I love it so much and am very happy with it. I thought it was a little pricy but when I got it I think it's really worth the price!

I bought these for our home theater room. I was extremely happy with the weight and feel of fabric. They are silky. The sheen is beautiful. I purchased black. Blackout feature - great! It really depends on your curtain rod. I bought these long and actually hung them sideways - I needed to cover a 50 x 84" window so I sewed my own curtain rod sleeve. Worked perfect since this was not a "two piece" blackout curtain.
The second the sun comes up in the morning, it wakes me up if my window isn't properly blocked off. I got tired of keeping it covered in black construction paper so started shopping around for a better solution. Found these on amazon at first, but according to many reviewers, they only received one curtain panel. So I found the set here, for a few bucks less. Got them up pretty easily, they have cloth straps at the top to slide right onto a curtain rod. And, I was pleasantly surprised they also came with tie-backs, so I can actually see out when I want to, unlike with the construction paper. I got the black ones with cute silver stars, as none of the other colors would match my room, also because I trust black to block light better. I'm not sure that would matter however, as nothing gets through the heavy, satiny material. They work better than I realistically thought they would. Highly recommended for anyone who doesn't want to be awakened at the crack of dawn on weekends, and unlike other black out solutions, they are cute with the silver stars.
These worked great for my baby's room. They keep out all the light and the little stars kind of glow at night....it's really cute.

I totally love these curtains, seem very well made and really pretty but because I was not paying attention and thought they were pinch pleated ( husband wants pinch pleat) I sadly had to send them back. I actually got them in black. I would recommend them to friends.
I got these panels for my little girls' room. She loves the pink and stars and they really bring the room together nicely. Panels come with matching tie backs. I tried the blackout feature in the afternoon with plenty of sun and it worked really well. My only suggestion: make these panels 95" long. They'd look more elegant if they came all the way to the floor in houses with high ceilings.
Described as pinched pleated, they were not. Also, claimed to be thermal. No lining just somewhat heavy,yet quite thin, polyester material. And, I seriously doubt their effectiveness at being blackout curtains. I did not hang them so this is only speculation. Shipping was prompt and return process went well.
Really nice looking drapes but I couldn't use them as I needed one continuous drape and they were two pieces for a window. Needed for a door instead! They did have funky loops and round pinch pleats I had never seen before. I do prefer the typical gathered pinch pleated draperies whether for windows or doors.
