The dimensions of a standard queen-size bed skirt are typically 60 inches wide and 80 inches long with a drop measurement (length from top of box spring or foundation to the floor) that varies. The usual drop length is 15 inches, and some bed skirts have an adjustable drop.
Bed skirts come in various designs, such as pleated, ruffled or flat panels. A bed skirt that's too short is easily altered by adding a bit of lace to the bottom edge. Bed skirts not only add to the look of the bed, but also provide a cover for under-bed storage.
