My first attempt at buying bedskirts online was a total bust, and I couldn't send them back. Very cautiously I ordered these, and I'm so glad I did! They are even better quality than I had expected. Nice heavy cotton ... I am grateful that Tommy Hilfiger came through for me. After washing and drying, they definitely need ironing, which I expected. The color is just a tad off-white, which gives it a warmer feeling while still going perfectly with my duvet (which has quite a bit of white in it).
