Everything You Need to Know About Deep Pocket Sheets

It's the middle of the night and you're warm and cozy in your bed. You roll over to get into a comfy sleeping position and all of a sudden your sheets slip off your mattress. If you’re tired of constantly wrestling with your bed sheets, you’re not alone. With the rise in popularity of platform beds mattresses are being designed thicker than they have in the past. These thicker mattresses are able to provide support while eliminating the need for a box spring making them popular with consumers. With thicker mattresses and popular memory foam toppers it's no wonder standard sheets don't fit quite like they used to. Luckily, there is an easy solution… Deep Pocket Sheets!

What are Deep Pocket Sheets?

Deep pocket sheets are designed specifically to fit over thick mattresses and mattresses with pillow or memory foam toppers. Standard sheet sets fit up to 14-inches so if your mattress is any thicker than that it might be time to look for a quality deep pocket sheet set.

Deep Pocket Fitted Sheets Measurements

To ensure the right fit it’s important to measure your mattress before you begin shopping for a deep pocket sheet set. To get an accurate measurement, remove your current bedding, including your sheets. If you use any sort of pillow or foam toppers, you’ll want to leave them on. With a tape measure or ruler measure your mattress at its thickest point, often this is at the center of the mattress rather than the side measurement.

Standard: 14” deep

Deep: 16” to 18” deep

Extra Deep: 18”-22” deep

At Southshore Fine Linens, we offer options to fit all mattresses. Keep reading to find the perfect sheets for your bed.
