Excellent bedskirt. I got it in ivory. I have a standard queen size bed with standard mattresses and the 14" drop fits absolutely perfectly. I took it out of the package and threw it in the wash. Those who say it has an odor when it comes out are correct, however I threw it in the dryer with a couple of scented dryer sheets and it not only came out totally odor-free, but without a single bend or wrinkle. I put it directly on the bed - and have had no problem at all with it sliding around. The fabric part that lays on the mattress feels somewhat slippery before it's washed the first time, but after that it just feels like a normal polyester, or whatever it is. I am 100% pleased with my choice.
