Rated 3 out of 5Â by Tobot Despite claims to the contrary, it shrinks
I was hesitant to order the curtain given the reviews that said it shrunk upon washing. However, VCS stated that the problem had been remedied at the factory and indeed, a sticker on the packaging of my curtain confirmed this. However, it still shrunk, a lot. It is over four inches shorter than the last curtain I had, which meant that I had to lower my curtain rod (which thankfully was adjustable). However, now I bonk my head every time I get in or out of the shower. It also gets instantly saturated with water and takes almost 24 hours to dry, even in my well ventilated bathroom with a heated floor. I think my best option is to go back to a cheap vinyl curtain for the inside of the shower and use the VCS cotton curtain as a very overpriced decorative curtain on the outside so I can lift my curtain rod back up to the appropriate height. Disappointed for sure. Just add four inches of material and the problem is solved....

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rbird Very nice, despite shrinkage
I can understand the complaints about this shower curtain being useless after it shrinks - I have an extra deep soaking tub, and it works fine, but if the old 14" tub was still in place, I'd be lowering the curtain rod. The shrinkage seems to mostly affect the length, as the width is still fine to keep water where I want it.
Other than that, it is bright white, keeps water where it belongs, and does not give me a hug with every shower, which is why I bought it - my tub enclosure seems a lot larger now. It does need to be spread out (drawn?) so the fabric dries, so far, no stains or mildew, and it is easy to wash. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by fuzzi Love It, But Mildewed Quickly
I was sick of plastic liners that clung to me as I showered, and mildewed quickly, so I decided to splurge with a duck curtain, made in the USA.
It is great, love how it hangs, and covers more than any of the plastic liners, keeping water off the floor. It is also wonderful that I no longer have to wrestle with a liner that billows into the bath tub.
I am disappointed that the bottom of the curtain not only started mildewing and discoloring within a week, but did not come clean, despite following the washing instructions (cold water, no bleach). Even soaking with borax did not help remove the stains, so I deducted one star for that issue.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by NEG wow never buy a plastic liner again
Purchased this shower curtain because it sounded like the answer I was looking for and made in USA is important to me. It works great. I was tired of buying those shower liners that smelled of plastic and never lasted long. This works great. My husband and I take our showers and by the next morning the curtain is dry and crisp. thanks great idea...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MAXCAT Shower curtain for stall
Since shower curtains for stalls are very, very difficult to find (all of them are for tubs), I order this one from Vermont Country Store. It is attractive and very durable, and no liner required.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sav It does what I intended it to do
I was looking for a curtain that would fit a small shower opening and when I came across this I was thrilled because it didn't require a liner, and it looked modern and clean. I ordered in white, and so far have not had any issues with it. It keeps water from splashing outside the shower, it doesn't stick to you, and it dries quickly. I'm considering purchasing the larger one for my other shower.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Charlotte Elsner Calming down a shower curtain
When the cotton duck shower curtain arrived, it was a proverbial 'stiff board:' impossible to gather back inside the tub. I called asking if it was ok to wash it first. The customer rep admitted he didn't know, but I should hang on a minute. He came back reporting that in a quick survey, three other reps had said, "Wash it!" (Which I did, and it worked.)
This was the fastest satisfactory reply I've ever received.
