Gathered Cotton Bed Skirt is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Unlike the other reviews, I found this bed skirt disappointing. The seam attaching the skirt to the platform was finished poorly and will not stand up to washing machines over time without fraying. The cotton was not of the quality I expect from LLBean. This bed skirt could be purchased elsewhere (ex: or Amazon) for far less. I wish companies would learn that you cannot have it both ways. Raise prices AND decrease quality. Get back to your roots LLB. You were once mainly a catalog company with one store in Maine, where we could rely on always getting quality merchandise made in the USA. Not so much anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality bedskirt - I love it! I recently purchased this bedskirt and it is made of the quality you can expect from LLBean. I not only buy my clothes here but most of my bedding. Other bedskirts I looked at were flimsy and dragged the floor. I have a rule about buying; I buy good quality and then it looks great practically forever! I am happy with it and proud of the look it creates and never have to buy it again, unless I get tired of it. The fabric is chambray and very good quality. The flannel sheets I have bought are very warm and heavy and I have had them for years. I keep my bedrooms cozy, comfortable and warm ( or cool if that is the case!). I'm always happy with my purchases from Bean!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality, but keep a few things in mind Bought King Size. Excellent quality fabric, plenty of material, nice workmanship. Bedskirt is NOT an elastic band with material attached; it's actually a generously gathered flounce attached to a very large rectangle of fabric. On our king-size bed, this meant levering the heavy mattress (which we really couldn't remove entirely) and carefully placing the "whole unit" on the innerspring, and then going back and forth repeatedly to keep it in place as we struggled to replace the bulky, heavy mattress. Second surprise: the flounce needed IRONING. It's high-quality cotton, so it's crisp and pretty, but it absolutely needed ironing. It's not wash-&-wear. Pretty pricey, too. But I DO like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy I wish L.L.Bean still sold the bed skirts from a number of years ago with crochet accents. However, this is a classy bed skirt too. I like how it looks with my L.L.Bean Seaside quilt. The skirt is 100% cotton and the platform is a nice cotton/polyester fabric. The drop length measured 14.5" after washing and ironing. My box spring is a dark gray color and it slightly showed through the drop of the skirt that is not hemmed. To fix this, I bought a cheap white cotton bed skirt from Target and put that down first, then put this bed skirt on top, and it looks great. Thanks L.L.Bean for selling quality bedding that I feel good about having in my home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! I have searched for the right bed skirt for many years, and always had to settle for less than perfect. So when it came time to update my bedding, I turned to L.L.Bean, whom I always trust for clothing. I purchased the queen size skirt in white, and I could not be more pleased. It fits the bed perfectly (so tired of the too-long-drag-the-floor thing.) It is gathered just right and brightens the entire room. I paired it with Bean's vintage matelasse coverlet and shams in Atlantic blue, and I love it all! Thanks, L.L.Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Value I'm very happy with this bedskirt. I love the more expensive ones, too, but I didn't want to spend that much and this one looks really good on my queen-size bed. The wrinkles have mostly all fallen out since being on the bed, and now it has a "fresh off the line" vintage look. If the wrinkles were a problem I would have sent it back because I haven't ironed a thing in several years and don't even know where to find my iron. Thanks for offering this version. L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully done. White cotton bed skirt - fits queen bed PERFECTLY. Didn't pull or move when I put the mattress over it. Quality fabric, stitching, hem is a good 2" which makes it look well-made (as it is!). Contrary to other reviews, I didn't have a problem with wrinkling. I popped it out of the packaging and into the dryer with a wet washcloth and it came out fine. Not perfect, but after hanging on the bed for a week, it is beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bed skirt This bed skirt is good quality, especially for the price, and fits perfectly. It is wrinkled coming out of the bag, but I washed it on cold and dried it on low. If you want perfection, you may decide to iron it, but it looked good to me straight out of the dryer. We put it on the bed while it was still warm (before wrinkles could set in) and it looks great. Very happy with this purchase
