Really like the look and feel of these slip covers. Really dressed up my floral sleeper sofa. Brought it out of the 90's into the current world. Love the stretchiness and the separate piece for the cushions. Makes for an all around better fit. I had tried other slip covers in the past, but they looked cheap and were always needing adjusting / tucking. These stay in place much better, need a little adjusting here and there, but nothing compared to the other types. Very nice quality, saved me from having to spend the big bucks on a new sofa just because the pattern was dated.
This couch cover is supposed to be fitted, using stretch material. While the material is stretchy, there was too much of it (kind of defeats the purpose of a stretch fit, doesn't it?). My couch is actually a tad bit longer than regular sofas, so the fact that there was STILL extra fabric is a problem. And I can't just 'tuck in' the extra fabric on the cushions because they are T-cushions, so if I pull the excess fabric to one side, it doesn't fit the shape of the T on that side. My cushions are a little longer than a standard couch's, and are of average thickness. My guess is if your cushions are on the thicker side, you may not have this problem. It's also bunchy at the bottom, which is unattractive, but not a deal breaker. What really gets me is the color... Uhg. I ordered the "Sand", which in the picture appears to be a light tan color. The picture in the package they came in looks like the one on the website even! But these covers are not tan at all. They are brown. They are literally the color of dry cocoa powder. Which is very unflattering on a souch, trust me. I think this is because of the "Stripes", which you can't really see in the photo. To be fair, these covers are labeled "Sure fit stretch STRIPE", but based on the website photo I figure that was just the texture. Well, it is the texture, but what yo can't see in the photo is that the striped are tan (the only color you see in the photo), and a much darker brown. Which is why they turn out looking a yucky brown color in person. On the other hand, regardless of the excess loose fabric, these covers still stay MUCH nicer looking and less messy than once piece covers I've tried, and if you chose pretty much any other color, I'm sure it would have been fine (A darker blue or green than pictured is much better than getting brown when you were expecting tan). So I give 3 stars (average). Took away a star for the loose fabric (it says it's sure FIT after all), and took away a star for the horrible misrepresentation of the color/stripes. I also had purchased the loveseat cover, and had all the same problems. I read every review on here before purchasing, and I ignored the less than favorable ones because there were so many good ones. Wish I hadn't. Wont return b/c it's such a hassle, but given a second chance, I would not purchase these again. :(

Wow! I am beyond happy! These slipcovers are truly amazing! I purchased these to cover an old (26 years!) sofa and loveseat that were really in sad shape! The old covers were faded, torn, and since we bought them in the 1980's were covered in Federal Blue upholstery! The Sure Fit covers brought them back to life! I removed the existing covers on the seats before I covered them with the slipcovers because the old ones were torn and I felt they would bunch up under the slipcovers. The fact that these covers stretch is what makes them so amazing. Our sofa is a bit oversized with the rolled arms, and these covers fit so well. They go on very easily and any excess can be easily tucked in around the inner seats before you put the seat cushions back in place. I LOVE the separate seat cushions, that is what makes these covers look like upholstery. Since we have 2 dogs, I would advise to be careful for nail pulls. Because this is a stretch fabric I do feel it could possibly snag. During the day I usually throw a sheet over these to protect them because they look so great I don't want any "issues" with my dogs! I would definitly recommend these to everyone who needs a quick update for their furniture! The only regret I have iis I didn't order these sooner! I am even thinking about getting another set in a different color! A+ to Sure Fit and Overstock for helping give my den a great new look!

Our 86" family room sofa was in desperate need of recovering or recycling (!). Purchasing this stretch slipcover was our last resort before spending "the big bucks". What a happy surprise! OK--so it's not a perfect fit; after all, the slipcover fits sofas 10 inches longer than ours, but with a little time (about 20 minutes) and effort tucking in, our sofa is vastly improved. The sofa looks good--and feels good, too. One warning--the navy pin stripe is darker than it appears in the picture, which for us was a bonus, since darker is better in our room.
This slipcover actually fits and looks good! I also bought the love seat cover. The color was a perfect match to what was shown in the photo. I have 2 big dogs and Kids so the test will be how durable they are. Looks like I just bought a new sofa set. Very happy with this purchase and the price was great. I was going to buy them from QVC but found them for a 1/3 of the price here.
I purchased the sofa and chair slipcovers and they are incredible! I don't usually have high expectations for slipcovers, but these actually transform my furniture. Neither piece even looks like they're covered. The covers were easy to put on - I did it myself while my husband was out of town and I was surprised to find how easy it was to slide them right on and figure out how to position them so that they fit snugly. I'm stunned and delighted by how good they look. I bought the sage green, and the color is slightly darker than I expected, but I'm reminded that I have a fairly dark room, so that's to be expected.
Easy to put on and lots of stretch!..so much so that I had to gather a lot and pin on back..that was OK by me tho..better that than have it too small..easy to put cushions in it's ''case" too..made the fit sooo much better..just tuck in any extra and you're set..since my sofa fits against a wall, it was OK that I had some extra fabric there and pinned it..the t-cushion option was a blessing..all in all, a good fit/purchase..nice not to have to look at the old flowered sofa!
The color and fit is just right. At first when you look at the color it looks dark in the package, but once you put it on your couch you can see the variation of lite blue mixed with dark blue and it actually looks like a medium denim, you can dress it up or dress it down depending on your decor. I like it dressed down with a red throw and yellow pillows it looks very comfy and casual. This slipcover washes up nice, wash in cold and medium heat dryer and it comes out fluffy with no piling, holds up for years!

My couch was really shabby looking. Needing something better for an event that I would be hosting at my house. Didn't have time to buy a new couch. This slipcover definately solved my problem. It gave my couch a fresh new look. Was relatively easy to put on. I still need to buy a new couch, but now the pressure is off. I wish there had been more choices in colors. This worked fine though.
I ordered the sand slipcover, and it looks more brown than sand. Also, there is a slight 'greenish' tinge to it (depending on the lighting in the room) ... I thought it was my eyes, but several of my friends thought so too. All in all, it's fine. Very comfortable and holds its shape on the sofa. It's fine in my family room downstairs, but I would not use it in my living room.

I am happy with this choice as it fits my low back hide-a-bed easily. Excess tucks away nicely and I love how when someone gets up, all excess isn't pulled out of it's place. I was constantly remaking the one I had before because it didn't stay tucked.
