I did iron this product (which was pretty easy to do with a spray starch) because I wanted a crisp tailored look. This product delivered exactly what I needed. I have a cast iron bed and did have a little difficulty making the foot corners work but I think its the structure of my frame not the construction of the product. I secured product with safety pins to box frame so I could put mattress on without the product sliding out of place. I am very happy with this product.
