I read ALL of the other reviews for these curtains before purchasing 8 panels (I wanted all of the window dressings on the first level at the front of my house to match). Every panel was exactly 84" long; as one of the other reviewers advised, I used 2" clip rings to extend the length so that I could install the curtain rod a few inches above the window frame. Because the curtain fabric is quite thick and the backing is attached to the curtain, I followed another reviewer's suggestion and threw all of the panels in the dryer for about 25 minutes to get most of the wrinkles out (steaming the panels did NOT work, and I wasn't about to iron them). One of the panels arrived with a defect in the thermatek lining; a quick LiveChat session solved this problem--the rep ordered another panel and I was good to go. I am a very, VERY thrifty shopper, and I believe these curtains are quite a bargain for the price--you'd pay $35 MINIMUM per panel for curtains that are this thick and have a tapestry pattern. They are very neutral and would work with most "traditional" decors.
