This bedskirt is great! Many inexpensive bedskirts have a split in the material at each corner which means the underneath of the bed may not be completely hidden. This bedskirt is truly pleated so that there's material behind each split or pleat. While the picture seems to show this, I've seen other pictures of skirts that do too only to get it home and find there are actual splits or cuts and the skirt never looks the same on the actual bed. Another benefit of this skirt is that the material of the skirt that the mattress will sit on has a tooth or grip to it. While this will make it harder to position the mattress on (in my case a King), it will and has kept the skirt in place. Another complaint I've had with lesser skirts. Last, the skirt will need to ironed when it's unwrapped from shipping if you want it to look like it does in the picture. Don't iron it before hand like I did and then put it on the bed. It got wrinkled in the process of placing it, which may not have happened had I had a second helper. In my case, after I had everything in place, I lower the ironing board to two feet off the floor and just iron it in place around each side of the bed. This worked far better for me and it looks great.
