Rated 2 out of 5 by shopperpoconos What is the purpose of a bed skirt?
You can say many nice things about this bed skirt BUT if you can see thru it why have a bed skirt - very frustrated! Bought a different one last year and the same problem - the buyers should make sure you cannot see the outline of the box spring and the legs of the bed. Sure you can return it but a lot of effort goes into ironing a linen bed skirt and getting it under the mattress just to be disappointed every time you walk into the bedroom and see thru the bed skirt -

What a beautiful, soft and breezy looking bedskirt this is! It creates a lovely, crisp look and is different from any other bedskirts I've seen. The material is a wonderful linen and the design allows for a unique flow. This was an excellent purchase.

This product is prone to wrinkles. If you touch it, it wrinkles. If you look at it sideways it wrinkles. I bought this without consulting my wife. When she saw it she said this will wrinkle easily. She was right. When she ironed it the wrinkles were hard to iron out. Once most of it was ironed, just putting it on caused more wrinkles. Not happy!

This tailored bedskirt looks very good with my gray/white theme. I did need to iron it after taking it out of the packaging but it was not a factor in the overall appearance. It does a nice job in completing my bed ensemble.

A well made bed skirt that has some class and taste, very South Hampton, NY. It works and looks great on my standard 9" metal bed frame - was concerned about the 15" drop, hit the floor perfectly. I have an extra thick box-srping and mattress, so maybe that is why it draped nicely. The ONLY thing I did not enjoy doing was ironing it after it was washed, Oh Boy! Wish it came with instructions on how to iron this bed skirt - had to with the pleats and linen fabric. It was a two person job to get it on my bed, once on, it looked lovely.

The Linen Bedskirt is absolutely beautiful. It does require ironing but
it is well worth the effort. The fabric is very nice and it looks nice and crisp. Fits wonderfully Would certainly recommend.

I'm not sure what the previous reviewer's installation issue was all about--we just slide the bed skirt under the foundation. It fits and looks great on our king-size bed. Just took a bit of ironing after washing for preparation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by makerandmomof5 Pretty, but costly and confusing design
While a bedspread is my preferred bed covering, my daughter requested a comforter for her redecorated room, and a bedskirt was a necessity. I'm a natural fibers kind of gal, so the linen was a no-brainer for me. When it came, I was more than a little baffled at how to put it on the bed, as the corners are open but snugly tacked at the bottom. I believe it is made that way to allow the bedrails to be passed through the skirt. The heavy iron bed we have does not screw together but has a ball and socket joint that must be dislodged with a mallet. Because hubby wasn't available to do the heavy lifting, I ended up using a seam ripper to free one side of the opening to allow it to fit the bed (hoping it doesn't reveal any holes once it's washed). The cost of this item is definitely too high for the amount of work it was to get it on the bed. It does require ironing, (which I expected and was happy to do). I recommend spraying it as opposed to steaming. The simple, occasional pleats are easy to press. The weight of the material is nice- not too heavy and not too thin- and ultimately, after all my effort, it looks lovely. I would like to see L.L. Bean perfect the design, or at least offer a video on how to use this one, and produce these in colors to match their comforters.
