There’s nothing worse than putting new, freshly-washed sheets on your bed only to find that they barely fit. Whether you have a luxurious pillow-top mattress or a plush mattress topper for extra cushioning, fitted sheets that don’t actually fit is a common problem for a lot of people. But luckily, investing in deep pocket sheets is an easy way to make sure that your bedding stays put. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about deep pocket sheets, including how to tell if you need them and where to shop for the best sets.
What Are Deep Pocket Sheets?
Standard fitted sheets are typically designed to accommodate mattresses up to 12 inches, but there are mattresses on the market that are much thicker than that—some even go all the way up to 18 inches. That’s what makes deep pocket sheets so great. Not only do these roomy sheets have significantly more fabric around the sides, but the corners themselves have extra space that allows the fitted sheet to neatly tuck underneath your mattress. This allows the sheets to fit comfortably around thick mattresses—particularly those between 16 and 20 inches thick—without sliding around or ripping the fabric. Plus, you can use most deep pocket sheets on regular mattresses, too. Just keep in mind that people with thin beds will need to tuck the extra fabric underneath their mattresses.
How to Tell If You Need Deep Pocket Sheets
You might be wondering if you need deep pocket sheets for your mattress. The good news is that it can be pretty easy to figure out yourself. First, you can check the size of your mattress to make sure it lines up with the dimensions of the sheets you want. You can either measure the thickness yourself or look it up online. Alternatively, it’s also easy to tell if you need deep pocket sheets based on how your current sheets fit. If you’ve ever noticed the elastic corners of your fitted sheets sliding off of the mattress, then there’s a very good chance that you need deep pocket sheets.
