Everything You Need to Know About Deep Pocket Sheets


It’s the middle of the night, and you’re comfortably nestled in your bed. As you shift positions to find the perfect sleeping spot, your sheets unexpectedly slip off your mattress. If you’re tired of this nightly struggle, you’re not alone. With the growing popularity of platform beds and thicker mattresses, standard sheets are no longer able to fit properly. But fear not, there is a simple solution – Deep Pocket Sheets!

What are Deep Pocket Sheets?

Deep pocket sheets are specially designed to fit over thick mattresses or those with pillow or memory foam toppers. Unlike standard sheet sets that usually accommodate up to 14-inch mattresses, deep pocket sheets are crafted to fit thick mattresses that exceed this measurement.

Measuring for Deep Pocket Fitted Sheets

To ensure the perfect fit, it’s crucial to measure your mattress before purchasing a deep pocket sheet set. Start by removing all current bedding, including your sheets. If you have any additional pillow or foam toppers, leave them in place. Using a tape measure or ruler, measure the thickest point of your mattress, typically the center rather than the sides.

  • Standard: Up to 14″ deep
  • Deep: 16″ to 18″ deep
  • Extra Deep: 18″ to 22″ deep
