TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award If you're looking for the world's best selection of home decor items, including slipcovers, you won't need to go anywhere but Wayfair. With over 14,000 options in slipcovers alone, plus hundreds of thousands of other products for everything from kitchen to bath, Wayfair truly offers you one-stop shopping on almost anything you could imagine needing for your home.

Slipcover filters

Fortunately, you don't have to randomly browse the many kinds of slipcovers you'll find on Wayfair. Instead, jump directly to a category, like Futon Covers, Loveseat Slipcovers, or Sofa Slipcovers on their main product page. From there, it's easy to apply filters to narrow results down by color, slipcover design, cushion design, price, or attachment (elastic, hook, zipper, and so on). You can also click on the Sort & Filter button to have your results shown by customer rating or ascending/descending price, as well as adding more filters like dimensions, availability, and brand.

Best Slipcovers

Reliable customer reviews

Because Wayfair does such a large amount of business, you can take advantage of customer reviews to give you an idea of which slipcovers really deliver great fit and function. For instance, their most popular sofa slipcover, with over 1100 ratings and an average score of more than 4 out of 5 stars, is the Velvet Plush Form Fit Stretch Box Cushion Sofa Slipcover by Winston Porter. Available in 8 colors at a starting price of $29.99, that's hard to beat!

Customer friendly policies

You'll also have a hard time finding a slipcover store with more customer-friendly policies than Wayfair's. Shipping is free on all orders over $49 - so if you decide to go for that popular slipcover we described, you'll just have to add a few throw pillows or other home extras to get it all delivered at no cost to you. Plus, Wayfair gives you a generous return policy of 30 days to return your slipcover if it isn't what you expected - with no restocking fees like some of Wayfair's rivals charge. Your returned items need to be in their original condition and packaging, though, and you'll have to pay for return shipping costs.

Top Ratings

While Wayfair may not have any custom slipcovers available, there's surely something in their inventory that will be a great fit for your furniture and a nice upgrade to what you currently have. And, with such an easy-peasy return policy, you won't have any issues if you need to return your slipcover and try a different size or style. Because Wayfair makes it such an enjoyable shopping experience to find slipcovers for every need, they easily earn our top recommendation among retailers.

Must be in resalable condition, with original packaging and paperwork

SureFit got its start more than 100 years ago in Philadelphia, and since that time they've grown to be one of the most widely-distributed slipcover brands in the world. You may have even seen their home decor products at your local department store or other retailers of pillows, drapes, and other items. Fortunately, there's no need to have a brick-and-mortar store nearby: SureFit maintains an online inventory of more than 1,000 products that are available directly to consumers.

Helpful information

We love all of the helpful tools SureFit offers, to help you get the ideal slipcover for your furniture. Be sure to look towards the bottom of the site for their measuring guides, styling tips, and even their "Slipcovers 101" info. You can also contact their customer service team from 9AM - 5PM (EST) on weekdays, either through their toll-free number or live chat.

Wide range of slipcovers

You'll want to start by identifying what kind of cover you need: a pet furniture cover, a furniture cover, or a traditional slipcover. You'll find those categories at the top of the page. Here's what you can cover with a traditional design at SureFit:

  • Sofa
  • Loveseat
  • Chair
  • Wing Chair
  • Recliner
  • Dining Chair
  • Sleeper
  • Ottoman

Because there are so many options, you'll want to use the filters on the left side of the page. For example, in the Sofa Slipcovers category alone there were over 50 choices - so our shopping experience went much more quickly when we filtered by pattern, color, and price range.

Form fit or relaxed fit

Generally speaking, you'll choose between two fits: form and relaxed. SureFit's relaxed slipcovers use woven fabrics, can be adjusted more loosely and are a good choice if you have skirted furniture. On the other hand, form-fitting slipcovers use stretchy fabrics for a closer fit; this style fits your cushions and furniture's contours more tightly and is a good pick if you have T-cushions or box cushions. You'll find fabrics like cotton duck, stretch suede, designer suede, stretch piqué, denim and many more.

Discounts available

Prices at SureFit range from $10 to just under $300 on most slipcovers, with the majority falling right around $150. As we browsed the SureFit site, we got a pop-up offering us a discount of 20% on our first purchase if we became a subscriber to their email list. That discount only applied to first-time customers, and there were other restrictions in place. At the time of our most recent visit, there was also a promotion featured at the top of the site, for a Buy One, Get One 50% off discount when using the provided coupon code.

Disappointing return policy

SureFit isn't as generous with their customer policies as some of their rivals. For example, you'll have to spend at least $119 to get free shipping. Also, if you need to return your slipcover, you'll have 30 days from the date of purchase, not from when you received your purchase - and you should expect a 10% "return processing fee" (in other words, a restocking fee) to be deducted from your refund.

Not the only negative

Unfortunately, that's not the only negative we discovered when evaluating SureFit. When we looked at the company's reputation with the Better Business Bureau, we found that the BBB gave this retailer a disappointing "D-" rating. While 18 complaints over 3 years isn't a huge number, the fact that SureFit left most of them unanswered is unacceptable. We found descriptions of calls to customer service where no one picked up the phone, $30 return fees taken from products that only cost $45, and so on.

At the end of the day, you might get a great-fitting slipcover by shopping at SureFit. However, if anything goes wrong - the color doesn't match, the cover doesn't do a good job of protecting your furniture as promised, and so on - you could be in for a really rough experience when trying to get a satisfactory answer from SureFit's customer service department. Because of this drop in reputation, especially as demonstrated by the "D-" at the BBB, SureFit falls to the bottom of our rankings for buying slipcovers online.

Continued from above

In the past, slipcovers had a reputation for being less-than-attractive, largely because they fit badly and didn't earn many points for style or sophistication. Today, however, there are trendy and affordable slipcovers that fit so perfectly, your guests won't even be able to tell that they're not original to your sofa or recliner. You can even get custom-cut slipcovers in the fabric, style, and size you need for any piece of furniture.

You may have already discovered that your local brick-and-mortar stores carry few if any slipcover options. Most of what you'll find is limited to styles that really only amount to a washable pad that you throw over the top of your chair or couch, hoping that it will cover high-use areas like the seat and back. While that's a convenient option, especially if your main priority is protecting surfaces from pet claws and hair, or spills and other accidents, it definitely won't give you a classy upgrade to your home decor. Fortunately, options abound online, putting every imaginable fabric, pattern, and style within reach.

As you decide what kind of slipcover you need and which online retailer should earn your business, how can you tell which stores are the best? Here are several criteria to guide your shopping:

  • Selection. Does the retailer give you lots of options? Are their slipcovers all in-stock? You should be able to select from a wide variety of sizes, colors, and fabrics, in order to get the right slipcover for your furniture.
  • Pricing. How competitive are the prices that the store offers? Are there any money-saving perks like free shipping or discounts?
  • Return Policy. If your slipcover doesn't quite fit, or doesn't look like you pictured it, can you return it for a refund? If so, how much time do you have to make your decision? Will you be charged any restocking fees or return shipping costs?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best slipcover stores for practically every sofa, chair, or other piece of furniture. We hope this information helps you change your decor and protect your furniture with the perfect slipcover!
