Full Answer

Adjustable slipcovers are simply a piece of fabric or fabric plus an elasticized ruffle around the bottom of the piece of furniture it covers. They are perfect for irregularly shaped barrel chairs.

Ready-made slipcovers are mass-produced for standard-size barrel chairs and require tucking and pinning for a proper fit. These are the most cost-effective covers, and in most cases, machine washable.

Semi-custom slipcovers are ready-made covers custom sized to fit the buyer’s barrel chairs, reducing the amount of fabric that needs to be tucked and tied.

Custom-fitted slipcovers are the most expensive as the exact look of the slipcover is determined by the buyer, including color, style, fabric and pattern.
