I'd read some earlier reviews about this item, and yes, the covers and the lace trim are "floppy". I didn't really care about that. I ordered the European Sham size in Ivory, to replace some "kitten destroyed" covers on my couch. These fit perfectly. They also matched the ivory throw I bought from Target to cover the rest of my couch. This combo was incredibly cheaper than paying to recover the whole couch professionally. Overall, I have a very nice shabby chic look to my couch now... these would not be something for someone who wants a crisp pressed look. The eyelet is beautiful, by the way. The only thing others might not like (besides the floppy casual look) is, the body of the cover is a bit on the thin side.
