The Kindle Paperwhite does not fit into this cover, it is simply too small. I suppose the Kindle could be forced in so as to stretch the case, but I feel that this will possibly damage the Kindle! Unfortunately, the cost is small enough for me not to be bothered to send it back.
Poor product - bought 2. Both not large enough to take Kindle. Difficult to position flap in order to secure the Kindle in the sleeve. Low cost item so did not bother to return - will have use for something else.
While it's good to have an affordable cover to keep my Kindle safe, the 6" Neoprene Sleeve case is a tight fit, and difficult to use. It has also stretched where the lip covers the Kindle. Not recommended.
