I needed a bedskirt that had three things. They were: 1. Good quality fabric. Not see-through or thin. 2. Length to hit the floor exactly -- not look as if it's 'floating' off the floor (decorator's nightmare!). 3. I needed the fabric that holds the bedskirt together to be made of cotton -- NOT that terribly cheap stuff that tears easily and melts if it's put in the dryer. This bedskirt covered all of those points with ease. I was most impressed that it's made COMPLETELY of a nice-weight cotton. So, no worries about putting this in the dryer. It won't melt or tear easily at all. It's made well, so I have no worries that it won't hold up over time. Overall, I am very pleased with this bedskirt and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quality bedskirt. As far as others commenting on not showing pet hair that much, I tend to disagree. I have two cats with light colored hair and when they crawl under the bed, their fur does accumulate on the bedskirt. However, that's to be expected with furry friends that have light hair when you have dark colored fabrics. That shouldn't detract anyone from purchasing this.
