My window is exactly 72 in tall and the blind lacks 2 inches covering the window! Also, the operation isn't as smooth as my high dollar bathroom shade, a little jerkier when opening. Plus, it only comes with one handle in the middle of the shade for opening. With a blind this wide you need 2 handles, one on the left and one on the right to distribute, the force as you're opening it or else you'll bend the blind. I threw the handle away and just use my hands. Overall, I decided to keep it b/c it looks nice if it's only halfway open (which is really all I need) and I can make do with no handle. Overall, you get what you pay for!!! Wait for the 60% sale and buy a high dollar shade if you truly need it to be 72" long.
