I had researched several bed skirts and this was the exact size I needed for my bed. My bed is raised and this extra length worked out fine. After receiving, I washed skirt on gentle to be fresh before putting on bed, ironing it was no big deal. It looked so pretty afterwards. Has a liner which gives it a more substantial look and not cheap looking. The price was great for the skirt. I could not be any happier with my choice. I highly recommend.
