I really didn't think it would fit my ottoman. The ottoman I was trying to cover was a big odd size, 44 inches wide, 23 inches in height. But since the dog chewed a couple of the corner of my ottoman it needed to be covered, and I couldn't bare throwing it out. It simply needed a cosmetic makeover. i bought this slipcover I pulled it out of the packaging and thought "well this is not going to fit" so I put it on, tugged and pulled, it was close to covering, then I pulled harder and stretched a little more and BAM! it fit. I love it. It was exactly what I needed and almost a perfect match for my chocolate brown couch. This saved me buying a new ottoman when all it needed was a really good stretchable cover.
