Frequently Asked Questions

What if my mattress is between sizes?

If your mattress dimensions fall between standard sizes, it's advisable to opt for the larger size for a better fit. For instance, if your mattress is slightly larger than a standard queen but smaller than a king, go for the king-sized sheets.

You can then adjust the fit by tucking in the excess fabric or using sheet suspenders to tighten the fit. Remember, it’s easier to work with sheets that are a bit too large than too small.

How do I measure for a custom-sized mattress?

For custom-sized mattresses, take precise measurements of the length, width, and depth. If the mattress has unique features like extra depth or an irregular shape, include these in your measurements. When shopping for sheets, look for brands that offer custom-sized bedding or consider having sheets tailor-made.

Provide the exact measurements to the manufacturer to ensure a perfect fit. Additionally, inquire about return policies when ordering custom sheets, as you’ll want to ensure they fit your unique mattress correctly.
