To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I really wanted to like these. I research products before purchasing and based on the reviews I had high expectations. They were soft, but the color was off. I ordered the dark gray and it looked navy blue. Also, it came with small pieces of styrofoam to help keep the cover tucked into the cushions, but they did absolutely nothing. It literally looked like a sheet thrown onto the chair/couch. I would rather look at the ugly couch fabric than deal with these. Did not work for me; items were returned.
Remember all the old, dirty couches from your college and post grad days? When you couldn't afford a new couch so you settled down with the one that was either bought off craigslist, handed down from the 80s, or mysteriously was left behind by someone who lived there ages ago? This is the quick fix, and it's a damn good looking one too. What I love about this its that it's machine washable. I wash mine about every other month. Dries quickly in the dryer too. Think about it. How often does a couch get washed? Let alone, how many couches themselves are washable? Years and years of people sweating, sitting, hooking up, spilling food, crashing for the night, etc. It's disgusting! I would even buy something like this for a new couch! My only complaint is that I wish it came with more nonslip styrofoam pieces. I've collected some similar ones from packaging materials and stuck them in the cracks so it holds up better.
If you're thinking about getting this, just do it! Regardless if your couch is old or new!
I love the fabric of this cover, I thought it was going to be scratchy, but it's not, it's so soft and comfortable. I have a regular sized couch, and bought the regular couch cover but it is way to big. I had to fold in the top corners and stuff them into the couch just for it to look nice. Obviously that's not a problem with the cover, but it was frustrating. The only real problem we've had so far is that it will NOT stay tucked in the back. The foam helps in the corners but on the back of the cushions the cover is always bunched up and needing shoved back into place. Also the elastic is great, if you don't have a skirted couch. We had to pull the cover under the couch's feet because it wouldn't stay around the edges. Over all it's a nice cover, and it looks alright but I wouldn't buy it again for this couch.
The cover itself is very nice, great material, and fit our couch just fine. No issues with putting it over our couch, the fit, or anything like that. Our main issue, and considering we've now bought two for each couch we have, is durability. We bought this in the hopes that the stretchy material would both give extra life to our couches, and protect them from our dogs. They certainly gave the couches new life, but these are not good with dogs.
Within a few weeks, the dog's nails had defeated the 'stretchy' material and created holes in the fabric. Keep in mind, this isn't them actively digging at it, but getting up and down from the couches. This lead to first the loveseat's being replaced, and then a week later, the regular couch. These weren't sent as replacements, we purchased them ourselves hoping for a better result. Within two weeks, we had the same issue with small holes which gradually become large tears. We won't be replacing these a third time.
My two 35 yr old couches still have good bones, but the covers are NOT nice any longer (off white shows EVERYTHING) so I FINALLY found a product I liked the look of and the reviews were quite positive, thus my purchase. They arrived quickly and were relatively easy to put on. The arm pockets weren't the best fit, but I'm guessing that it had more to do with the design of my relics than the product. My den looks SO much better, prettier and no longer a scattershot of ineffective cover-ups. I'm feeling really good bout this purchase.
I've had these covers for over a year and a half now and they're still holding up okay. They seem to have shrunk a little bit after a few washes but still fit over my couches enough to keep them protected so that isn't too big of a problem for me. The material does collect pet hair and I vacuumed mine a little too aggressively and put a hole in the arm of one of them, so they could stand to be slightly more sturdy if you'll be needing to clean them on a regular basis. Other than that, they do protect my couches and the cat doesn't seem interested in clawing them so that's a win-win in my books. Worth the cost, considering that they've held up for close to two years without too much wear and tear.
We got an old pleather sofa in a garage sale for when our son went off to college. The pleather began to flake off of it and get on our clothes, floor, etc. The sofa was still in decent shape and pretty comfortable otherwise, so we wanted a nice, cheap cover to keep the flaking to a confined area, figuring we could just wash the cover of it every so often. The cover looks nice, stretches well, seems durable, and makes the sofa soft and desirable to sit on once again! You do have to keep tucking in the seat area to keep it looking nice, but I haven't seen a sofa cover yet that doesn't require that. It was worth our money. I recommend this!
We have pets...several as I used to foster and just could not let go. For this reason we are practical in furniture purchases. But nothing can withstand the torture of cat & dog nails and fur. Until now. These covers are the BEST we have ever purchased, and we've purchased A LOT. Super easy to put on. Easy enough that 1 person can do it. Two is quicker, but can still be done with 1. These stay put. Even after our 65 lbs dog jumps up and down, wallowing all over it. The cats chase each other, race across it length wise, roll around with one another...this remains in place. It doesn't shrink or stretch out after laundering either. It doesn't hold the pet fur either. That washes out easily and it looks brand new each time. Out furniture is a dark gray "pleather" and the color match is like they came from the same manufacturer. It's soft and comfortable for humans too! I am returning to purchase another we are so happy. In all our years of trying to find a sofa cover that gave even half of what it promised, we finally found one that delivered 100%. Just measure to ensure you get the right size! Don't hesitate on this one. If you have pets, this is the holy grail of sofa covers and does not disappoint.
Actually I have no idea if this has any water resistance... Not gonna lie, it's a bit ugly. We are moving soon, so didnt want to buy a new sofa, but the hole in the leather was getting so big. We might never see our beautiful pitbull again after the sofa ate him, so I bought a couple of these. With the tags it goes on very easily. The hardest part was getting the dog out of the way.... It stays in place despite the kids, hubby and dog getting on and off often and it feels nice, like a blanket. The roller dont seem to do too much, they just pop back out, but it seems to stay in place regardless. The large fits a loveseat size and the x-large a 3 seater or two large cushions.
The Upsides: very easy to put on (took less than five minutes) and easy to clean; true to color; moderately cute. My kitten shredded my leather couch and this slip cover has kept my couch reasonably presentable. The material is soft and comfortable.
The Downsides: This slipcover certainly won’t fool anyone — it’s obviously a slipcover. The material is microfiber and it feels kind of cheap and leaves a waffleprint indentation in your skin if you sit for a while. It was sort of a pain to make it stay put: the tiny foam inserts they give you are a total joke. I’ve read that pool noodles work, and what I ended up doing was rolling up old bath towels and pushing them into the cracks of my sofa to anchor down the sheet, which works pretty well.
When I’m ready to move on from this one, I’ll be buying a nicer brand. But this was a good starter slipcover to cover the damage on my sofa and quickly change the color scheme of my living room.
