Shower curtain is beautiful and good quality. The color of the
blue is much lighter than it appears 'on line.'

I received the Seashell shower curtain yesterday and am delighted with it. The colors are bright and it adds so much to the small bathroom where it hangs. The quality is excellent!

Rated 2 out of 5 by AyKayEs Very pretty, but it wrinkles
I was pleased to see that LL Bean is offering some shower curtains now. I needed a new one, and with the guarantee, there's no risk in trying out LL Bean merchandise. My downstairs bathroom is a pale, minty seafoam green, with white tile and navy accents, so I thought these colors would be perfect. Indeed, the stripes and the colors of this curtain are lovely and look great in there.
I washed the curtain (in a small load that also consisted of pillowcases and hand towels# as soon as it arrived, and I removed it from the dryer immediately when the cycle ended. I was disappointed to see that it was wrinkled all over. Not too bad, but the hems at every edge were all curled, so it doesn't hang very nicely. The fabric is very thin, which probably doesn't matter for a shower curtain because of course you need to use a liner, too. But I think the thinner fabric explains the wrinkling and the hems coming out of the dryer all crushed. My old shower curtain cost two-thirds less than this one and came from a discount chain store, but it was a thicker cotton with a waffle weave, and its hems stayed flat, and there was no wrinkling. I decided to hang it and see if the wrinkles would fall out--after all, gravity and the steam from the shower ought to fix it, right? Well, no. I wouldn't have thought it possible, but it's been up for several days and at least eight showers, and it's still wrinkled, and curled in at the edges and curled up at the bottom hem. I am going to take it down today and iron it.
I notice that LL Bean does offer some shower curtains that are called "wrinkle free," but they aren't as pretty as this and they have very outdated and old-fashioned designs. I like the more modern stripes and the colors of this one. I'm disappointed that it isn't also wrinkle free, though, because it seems like a no-brainer that they should only offer shower curtains that don't require ironing. And for the price, it ought to be darn near perfect. The more I think of it, the more annoyed I am that I spent this much on a shower curtain that is going to be so high-maintenance. I guess I am keeping it for now. I don't anticipate having to wash it very often #I use a liner, too#, so maybe the fact that it will need to be ironed after each wash won't annoy me too much. I can send it back if it does, of course. But I can't really recommend it, unless wrinkles don't bother you #or unless you just like to iron#.
