We've decided to not replace the sofa until the kids are out of the house (OK, hopefully we don't have to wait that long.) The sofa is still in good shape structurally, but it's taken a beating with spills. Anyhow, I bought a one-piece slipcover a few weeks ago, and it actually looks OK. Sure, it looks like a slipcover, but at least it doesn't look like a discolored sofa! I wish I had purchased a two-piece slipcover, but the one-pieces were on sale when I bought it and it's on now, so there's no turning back.
Anyhow, my problem is that the slipcover keeps becoming untucked. Both my kids and my husband seem incapable of just sitting there. They have to sprawl on it, and the slipcover slips out of its nice little tucked in self.
Has anyone had any luck with something to keep the slipcover in place? I remember my mom used to have these corkscrew pins that she used to keep a slipcover in place. I also saw some things that you stick behind the cushions. Do they work? We definitely have a bigger sofa, I don't know if anything will keep it in place.
