Great if your board is the right shape”
by Celia Coyle
I was a bit doubtful as to whether this would be suitable for my largish board. However, by removing the old supplementary padding, I was j-u-s-t able to get the cover over the pointy end. So if (like mine) your board is at the maximum end of the suitable measurements, you will need to take this pronounced narrowing into consideration. Given the right shaped board, it's a great ironing cover and I'm so glad I could get it to fit.

This ironing board cover was too small for my board, even though my board is the same width and 2 centimetres shorter than the length given for the cover. I was very disappointed because it felt like very good quality but, sadly, it had to be returned.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry for the problem and will be in touch shortly to help.
Best cover ever!”
This ironing board cover is made to fit the exact width and length so may not suit all boards, but it fits mine. It is elasticated rather than having a cord to pull to get it to fit. Nicely padded, but I always use extra padding anyway. The luggage-style straps are great (I have tied other covers underneath with string before now!). Slight niggle in that one of them needs to be undone to get the board to close, but a small price to pay. Dare I say it, it's almost a pleasure to iron!

The quality of this ironing board cover IS good, but the shape is such that it didn't fit properly, being far too narrow at the tapered end to go over the sides of the ironing board. No use to me whatsover.

A note from the team: We're sorry to hear you were disappointed with the ironing board cover. It does taper much narrower to around 7".We're glad to have resolved the problem with an alternative to better suit your needs.
This is a very good, well fitting ironing board cover. It was incredibly easy to fit, and the underlay is thick enough to offer adequate padding, and it stays put during ironing. My only slight (very slight!) gripe is that the non-slip fasteners are positioned so tath one of the two sits right where the ironing board opens and closes, and I found that it stopped me putting the board up, so I have to unfasten the fastener, then reattach it after the ironing board is up. My solution? Leave it undone and buy the Lakeland Ironing Board Clip Covers of course!

At last an ironing board cover that has been made properly designed and with no fiddly ineffectual draw strings but proper fasteners - and fits perfectly (provided you have the right size board which I have). Why did it take so long for someone to produce one? Must have been designed by a woman.

Simply the Best Ironing Board Cover Ever”
I cannot say enough good about this cover - it took me less than 30 SECONDS to fit correctly! I previously had a Lakeland cover with drawstring and velcro straps (excellent quality as always with Lakeland). However, after 30 MINUTES of struggling to fit it onto the board, I rang my local store in desperation to see what I was doing wrong. I also rang Windermere, who very kindly noted all my comments, and said they would pass them on. This was only a few months ago, and I do not think they have changed their fitting just for me! However, this new fitting is PERFECT. THANK YOU LAKELAND!
