The covers are really comfortable but attract lint and dust easily. Good thing they are machine washable. Make sure to tuck a lot the first time you put them on or it won't look right. My couch cushions are separate from the back of the couch so it was hard at first to get them to stay in a spot that looked good. They used to be individually covered and with the slipcover they looked lumpy. I had to do some crafty sewing and velcro-ing to get them to stay in one spot, and then put the cover over them. I like that this cover is 2-piece. It looks sooo much better than having just a one piece slipcover on a couch with a separate bottom cushion. overall i like it. I guess I had overly high expectations about the look but for what i paid it's great. This is also the only one I could find in black. Not sure why black slipcovers were so hard to find. I definitely recommend stretch over tie-back covers.
