Everything You Need to Know About Deep Pocket Sheets


Have you ever had the frustrating experience of your sheets slipping off your mattress in the middle of the night? If so, you’re not alone. With the growing popularity of platform beds and thicker mattresses, finding the right sheets has become a challenge for many. That’s where deep pocket sheets come in. In this article, we’ll explore everything you need to know about deep pocket sheets and how they can provide a solution to your bedding woes.

What are Deep Pocket Sheets?

Deep pocket sheets are specifically designed to fit over thick mattresses and mattresses with pillow or memory foam toppers. Unlike standard sheet sets that fit up to 14 inches, deep pocket sheets provide a more generous depth, ensuring a snug fit on your mattress.

How to Measure for Deep Pocket Sheets

To find the perfect fit, it’s important to measure your mattress before purchasing deep pocket sheets. Start by removing your current bedding, including the sheets. If you have any additional pillow or foam toppers, leave them on. Measure the thickest point of your mattress using a tape measure or ruler. This is usually at the center of the mattress rather than the sides.

Here are the standard depths for deep pocket fitted sheets:

  • Standard: 14 inches deep
  • Deep: 16 to 18 inches deep
  • Extra Deep: 18 to 22 inches deep
