How to Find Your Perfect Sheet Size

How to Find Your Perfect Sheet Size

2021 Mar 16th

Ever bought a fitted sheet that just wouldn’t fit? Or one that keeps popping off the bed, no matter how tightly you tuck it?

Fortunately, these problems are easily solved. It all starts with understanding what size mattress you have. From there, you can choose sheets that match your mattress size (and depth!) to ensure a perfect, snug fit.

First thing’s first, use the chart below to identify the size of your mattress!

Matching Your Mattress Size to Your Sheets

Once you’ve measured your mattress and determined its size, you may think it’s a simple matter of buying the corresponding sheets. But there are a few more factors to take into consideration…

  1. Mattress Depth

    Not all mattresses are made equal. Some are much deeper than others. This will have the greatest effect on your fitted sheet. Our fitted sheets come in different depths, in order to accommodate both standard and deep mattresses. (More on this in a moment!)

    To determine what fitted sheet will best fit your bed, measure the depth of your mattress from top to bottom.

    It’s best to take this measurement using a corner of your mattress, and not in the middle or at the foot of the bed. Depending on the age of your mattress and whether you sit on it often, it may be slightly sunken along the sides or at the foot!

    We recommend taking the measuring tape a little bit under the corner of your mattress to account for the fitted sheet and allow some wiggle room.

    Mattress depth is generally categorized as follows:

    • Standard mattress: 7 to 12 inches high
    • Deep mattress: 13 to 17 inches high
    • Extra deep mattress: 18 to 15 inches high

  2. Mattress Toppers

    Do you love using an extra cushiony mattress topper? Don’t forget to factor this in when taking your measurements! A topper will add to the overall depth of your mattress. Moral of the story: be sure to take any extra layers into consideration when choosing your fitted sheet.

  3. Washing Your Sheets

    We recommend washing your sheets before first use! Always wash your sheets by themselves and follow care instructions closely, and you shouldn’t experience undo shrinkage.

  4. Some fabrics, like organic cotton, are more prone to shrinking than others. We take this into consideration when crafting our sheets by including a little extra material. So washing your new sheets before use will help ensure the best fit.

    Pro-tip: Invest in multiple sheet sets and rotate them out on washing day to extend their lifespan!

A Note on Specialty Sizes

With all the mattress sizes and terminology out there, it can be confusing to find the right fit. Some companies even have their own specialty sizes! To avoid confusion, we recommend comparing your mattress measurements to the product measurements before making a purchase.

Here at QE Home, we also have a specialty size called ‘Super King’ that measures 114” wide by 93” long. Not to be confused with California King, Super King is actually just an oversized duvet cover and duvet we carry. This size is ideal if your mattress is over 16” in depth, if you like your duvet to cascade over the sides of your bed, or if you share a bed and find yourself fighting over blankets!
