Hey there sleepers!
Let’s talk about one of the most annoying things that can happen to you when you’re trying to make your bed or get a good night’s sleep: fitted sheets popping off!
Is there anything more frustrating than the wrestling match of trying to fit your regular-sized fitted sheet onto an extra deep mattress, you finally get one corner on and the opposite one pops off like a fire-cracker, you somehow manage to rack up 10,000 steps just while doing laps of your bed? Or waking up in the middle of the night to find your sheets bunched up around you like a twisted fabric snake?
So, what’s the solution? Deep sheets! These beauties are the solution to all your sheet-popping woes.
But how do you know if you need deep sheets?
Let’s get real here – not all sheets are created equal. If you’ve ever had the frustrating experience of fitted sheets popping off your bed, you know what we’re talking about. And if you’ve got a plush mattress, like a luxurious pillow top, you know it can be even harder to find a sheet that actually stays put.
It all comes down to the height of your mattress. If you have a standard mattress, which is usually around 30cm thick, regular sheets will work just fine. However, if you have a thicker mattress, or a pillow top (much more common these days), something that measures more than 40cm total, you’ll want to opt for deep sheets, which have walls that are 50cm deep, to ensure a snug and secure fit.
So before you go throwing another set of ill-fitting sheets in the cart, take a sec to measure your mattress.
How to measure your mattress to check if you need deep pocket sheets
Measuring your mattress maybe not be the most exciting task, but it is an essential one if you want to avoid the pesky sheet-related frustrations we mentioned above. To determine if deep sheets are right for you, grab a measuring tape and measure the height of your mattress, including any pillow tops, underlays or additional layers. If your mattress measures 30cm or more, it’s time to ditch those standard sheets and upgrade to deep pocket sheets. Trust us, your bed will thank you.
But wait, there’s more!
The flat sheet included with our deep pocket fitted sheet is also bigger than your standard sheet (around 15cm longer and wider) to make sure you can still get those crisp hospital corners, no matter how deep your mattress.
And don’t forget, deep sheets aren’t just functional, they can also be stylish. Collections like our Vintage Softwash, CoziCotton and Alessia Bamboo Cotton all offer deep sheets that will not only fit your extra deep mattress perfectly, but also add a touch of luxe to your bedroom décor. So not only will you be sleeping soundly, but you’ll be doing it in style.
So, say goodbye to the frustration of ill-fitting fitted sheets and hello to a snug and secure fit with deep pocket sheets. Sweet dreams sleepers.
