This bed skirt was a real pain to get on the bed correctly as you have to "eye" in the length at every point, BUT if you need the length, then you will be pretty much stuck like we were. They need to make this length of bed skirt the way they have always made bed skirts. But in an effort to cheapen their production costs, you no longer get the center white panel. Anyway, we would have bought the standard style bed skirt had it been available, but alas it was not. So, we struggled, and measured, and put in the pins, took out the pins, re-pinned, and finally got it to look satisfactory. It is the correct length with our high foundation, and the color is a nice deep brown,, so it worked well in our powder blue and brown bedroom scheme. Good luck!
