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.
