Love these bedskirts. The price was great and I got it in several colors so that I can change them to match the bedspreads that I change monthly. Haven't washed any yet, so I don't know how that will turn out, but, since it is microfiber, I assume that if I get it out of the dryer soon enough it will be minimally wrinkled. Best parts about these - heavy enough to not be see-through and they are tailored nicely to fit well. I cut away all but 18" of the under mattress fabric so that I don't have to lift the whole mattress every time I change bedskirts. It makes life real easy for me as the 18" fabric is enough to hold the bedskirt firmly in place and makes the change an easy one.
I needed a queen size bedskirt and this one worked perfectly.The size was just right. I washed it before use, as i do with all linens and it did not shrink. It definitely needed to be ironed and I used a spray starch which made a world of difference. I would recommend it to my friends.
An earlier reviewer said she found the weight of the fabric too flimsy, so I was pretty sure I'd have to send this back when I got it. But it turned out that the weight is fine. It drapes beautifully. If I have one complaint, it's that either my full-size bed is smaller than standard or the bedskirt is larger than standard, because I'm going to have to hem it up about 2 inches all around. I love that there's an entire fabric base that spreads across the mattress. So many bedskirts these days are like fake neckties that are held up only by elastic at the edges.
This is better than the last bedskirt I bought in that the platform part fits the top of the boxsprings correctly, not hanging over the edge of the bed too much. The drop is just the right length and the only thing I would improve is the thickness of the white skirt. It washes well and didn't need ironing.
Saw earlier reviews which described a wrinkled fabric. I ran it through the washer and dryer before putting it on the bed. It came out not exactly smooth, but good enough unless you are super fussy. After it was on the bed, I sprayed it with wrinkle remover I didn't try to iron it, although that is an option. It's been on the bed for several weeks now, and wrinkles are gone. Many color choices in this silky lightweight fabric.
I needed a bedskirt that had three things. They were: 1. Good quality fabric. Not see-through or thin. 2. Length to hit the floor exactly -- not look as if it's 'floating' off the floor (decorator's nightmare!). 3. I needed the fabric that holds the bedskirt together to be made of cotton -- NOT that terribly cheap stuff that tears easily and melts if it's put in the dryer. This bedskirt covered all of those points with ease. I was most impressed that it's made COMPLETELY of a nice-weight cotton. So, no worries about putting this in the dryer. It won't melt or tear easily at all. It's made well, so I have no worries that it won't hold up over time. Overall, I am very pleased with this bedskirt and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quality bedskirt. As far as others commenting on not showing pet hair that much, I tend to disagree. I have two cats with light colored hair and when they crawl under the bed, their fur does accumulate on the bedskirt. However, that's to be expected with furry friends that have light hair when you have dark colored fabrics. That shouldn't detract anyone from purchasing this.
I had to return the first set if shams received. They had several little holes in the fabric on both as well as lots of loose stitched threads hanging. I just received my second set. They are not defective and are very pretty. The color is true to the internet, I got the teal. If they wash up well, I may order the 2nd color too. Overstock customer service was terrific !
It's exactly what I wanted . . . . tailored, with a 15" drop, and it fits the box spring very well. I just wish I had not ordered the color called "wheat," which appears on the computer to be a beige/khaki/tan color, which would have been perfect, but it's yellow! Sort of a light gold, not at all the color I wanted. I'd exchange it for the blue, but if the color of the one I ordered was off, then I can't be sure what shade of blue I'd get. Because it's a good bedskirt at a reasonable price, I'm keeping the yellow and may order the blue one next year and take a chance on the shade . . . but be warned. A good product, but color is nowhere near what it looks like on the screen.
I have looked and looked for a bedskirt with a 15" drop. I was so happy to find this one, which is so reasonably priced. I ordered the gold one for my guest room and it looks great with the comforter I have. I'm signing on again today to buy the light blue one for my master bedroom. I didn't wash the bedskirt prior to putting it on the bed, but I did iron it and it ironed well. I'm quite pleased, especially given the price. This was my first purchase from Overstock.com.
