Bedskirts are just not made like they use to be. The fabric that holds the skirting in it's shape and usually stays hidden under the mattress is CHEAPPPPP! It tore very quickly and is right at the hemline of the ruffle, so it shows. The other issue I have is that it is slightly big. I have a king and I ordered the king. The skirting hangs over the box spring just enough to show about an inch of the material that should be hidden. It is no where near as nice looking as the pictures shows. In the picture it seems to fit perfect and look very talored, not so!
