I would have given the cover 5 stars but it was a little short on the sides and barely covers the mattress. I have a California King and ordered a King size. The Cal King is not as wide as a regular King so it should not have been adequate. I really did not know if I should order this cover because of what others said about the color. The color is much darker than photo as others have observed but I actually like the color. It reminds me of tea stained linens. I think it pairs well with white and off white. The fabric seems well sewn, I have not washed it yet. I got it wet and tumbled it in the dryer to release wrinkles. I am using it as a bed cover without anything inside so I don't have issues with shifting.
