    I voted Lycra, because I hate the look of loose chair covers.  It’s fabric overload.

    Daughter #1 had lycra. They looked gorgeous, but were so snug, you couldn’t tuck your feet under them. Daughter #2 is getting fitted – will also match the linens and the bow will match the table overlay. The loose covers end up all over the place; while probably made to fit all kinds of chairs, they sag and bag. Guests can step on them, get their heels caught in them, etc.

    Regular, padded banquet chairs are more comfortable than chiavari’s, have a bit of “give” to them, and a larger seating area – chiavari’s are like sitting on a wooden plank. At #2’s venue, chiavari rental is $12 each, while the chair covers/bows are $4, so that decision was a no-brainer.

    I voted lycra but I’m biased as that’s what I’m having. What are the loose ones made of? Our decorator had a choice of satin ones and Fiance was afraid his grandmother would slip out of those. She has slipped off satin chairs before.

    Between those two choices I would go with lycra, though I think a fitted fabric would look nice too. Those loose ones though to me look too loose, I did non-lycra chair covers but they were still well fitted to the chairs.

    I like lycra. Particularly in black. Black loose chair covers look like garbage bags….

    I’m not a big fan of chair covers, and I don’t think chairs are a big deal anyways. What do your venue’s chairs look like without covers? I’m lucky I actually like the banquet chairs my venue provides, and they work with our colors. Sooo much more comfortable than other options and stress free, and cheaper,  in my opinion. But if they’re hideous or clash, I get it. I think loose looks nicer than lycra.
