The Big Bed Company for extra large beds

Question: How deep should fitted sheets and protectors be?


Answer: we recommend 2" to 4" (5 to 10cm) deeper than your mattress depth, including any mattress topper or pad.

Our standard fitted sheets and mattress protectors are made with a drop of 12" (30cm), so are good for mattresses up to about 10" (23cm) deep. Our premium fitted sheets are made to a very deep drop of 15" (38cm), so are good for mattresses up to about 13" (33cm). We recommend having a slightly (1-2" / 3-5cm) larger drop for electric or adjustable beds. We can change the drop on any of our sheets to any depth at no extra charge - just contact us, or leave a note in the Order Comment section at the end of checkout.
