I bought this bedskirt because it is beautiful and has a soft look about it. But, the material that goes underneath the mattress is very cheap! My bed has a wood railing around the bottom, which the bedskirt covers (looks great), and my 6 & 8 years old boys stepped on the wood to get up on the bed, which pulled on the voile fabric and ripped it clean away from the material under the mattress on both sides of the bed, in ONE occurrence. Im looking for another bedskirt and love this look but Im worried about purchasing another one like this. Just something to consider should you need a sturdy material.
