Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanBFF Comfy, Improved Look
I recently purchased these slip covers for our sofa and love seat, hoping to improve the appearance of chewed fabric by our zealous cat.
At first the extra fabric, especially on the sofa, was off-putting and sloppy, and we wondered whether we would be able to live with the slip covers. Then, putting into action the suggestion of a reviewer to use dowels and rolled up magazines in the sides of the cushions, both pieces of furniture were greatly improved and now closely resemble the LL Bean catalog,
The color is vibrant and the fabric is particularly comfortable in hot weather. My suggestion to anyone purchasing these it to try the dowel idea because it will make the difference between easily maintained smoothness with a shabby chic appeal, and plain old sloppiness that looks like you over-estimated the size of your furniture. In comparing these slip covers to others available, these are a better option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Msea15 Fit my sofa better than other slipcovers
Package came within a week. It is a good sturdy fabric and I steamed wrinkles out after I put it on the sofa. The piping gives it a more finished look, and given the pricey alternative of custom slipcovers, this was a good purchase. I bought the small sofa size in light khaki for my 88" by 37" by 30"(height) sofa.

We like the look of this slipcover, although even the small is a little long in length for our couch so where the arm covers meet the seat, there is a dip and the piping doesn't flow in an even line. Overall it has much improved the appearance of our couch. It has been washed once and actually was much less wrinkled after washing than before. After dealing with it constantly coming untucked for weeks, I finally rolled old magazines wrapped with rubber bands around a long 5/8" dowel for the back and shorter ones for the sides and now it stays perfectly in place. We also ordered the matching khaki pillows and are using those along with other pillows across the back. We are really happy with our "new"couch look.

Rated 2 out of 5 by OldtimeloyalLLBeanfa Not so happy regarding this slipcover
We own a condo in Florida for over 20 years and have purchased four slipcovers during this time for for a large sofa from LLBean.
The denim large sofa one we bought was a disappointment.
It wrinkled and the housekeeping staff overseeing our condo
were not happy with it.
We have gone back to using a solid dark blue one from LLBean
and would love to buy another, but sadly, don't see it anymore.
It washed well and didn't need ironing at all. The denim lost
its appeal after two washings.
Please LLBean bring back the large sofa cover you had several years ago....no piping...solid color and just looked good with
Long time LLBean fan

Rated 4 out of 5 by NJSwede fits well, looks good, washable.
We have been using the LLBean sofa cover for a few years now and it easily withstands our daily use. It fits well, cleans easily (we have a light color), and looks good. It does need a little adjusting the next morning after a night of tv watching, but a quick straightening and it's good to go (hence the four stars rather than five). For variety we are purchasing a second sofa cover, blue. Very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by VillageMartin Great Makeover
I needed a makeover for my flowered couch and rolled arm chair. I choose the khaki color. They are heavy and came wrinkled, but putting each cover separately in the dryer with a couple of damp towels on high for 15 minutes took most of the wrinkles out. My couch and chair are large so the fit is good. I used 3/4 inch round wooden dowels tucked down in the back and sides that work well to keep the slipcovers in place. I haven't washed them yet. I use just a damp cloth with a bit of dawn dish detergent to clean off a spill. So far I really like these covers a lot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sukiyumyum Not Practical.
This looked really good until I washed it and dried it. I actually enjoy ironing (honestly!) but ironing this slipcover was challenging and incredibly time-consuming. In my mind a slip-cover should be easy to throw in the wash and slip back on the couch. This one is not. I said to my husband as I was ironing: "Remind me to never ever wash this thing again. Like, ever!" It's really too bad because otherwise it's attractive and comfortable, but really not practical unless you plan to never use it much or wash it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CeCe2340 Too wrinkled
I bought these slipcovers for my sofa and love seat. They are a heavy twill fabric and they are so heavy that you have to wash and dry them separately and when you do they come out very wrinkled. Because they are so heavy they are impossible to iron. I even bought a steamer to try to steam them to get the wrinkles out but that doesn't work either. I bought some slipcovers prior to these that were a good fabric that was partially synthetic and so they washed and dried very well with no wrinkles. I have two dogs and two cats and must wash my covers frequently. I wish LLBean would bring back the other covers.

By a stroke of incredible luck, I picked up a few matching armchair slipcovers at an LLBean outlet. They are extraordinary! Fabulous quality, remarkable fit, and easy to use, these slipcovers have transformed my family room! Double thumbs up!
