Fitted sheets are the sheets that work for almost everyone. Having easy to use fitted bed sheets that not only save time and energy but are also great to sleep on is something for everyone to take advantage of!
Every morning when we wake up we start by getting up and making the bed. It’s the first step to starting your day with something productive. But making your bed can sometimes seem like a daunting task too because if you’re putting on bed sheets on the bed too, it takes up a lot of energy – especially when you do it first thing in the morning. This leads to a lot of people just leaving the bed as it is and sleeping on bed sheets that are only half-way tucked into the bed and there’s nothing that ruins sleep like bunched up, loosely tucked bedsheets.
Fitted sheets are sheets that are sewn to perfectly fit your mattress. They have an elastic sewn into them that holds onto the mattress. These are the best for people who just want their sheets to stay perfectly in place on their mattresses. Fitted sheets stay where you leave them.
Fitted sheets also work really well in a kids room. As children have a lot of energy they often jump around on their beds and pull the sheets off the beds. Many parents end up having to re-make their children’s beds multiple times a night because of this. This leads to parents spending more time fixing up the bed than with their kids at bedtime.

What to Keep in Mind before Buying Fitted Sheets
The most important part to keep in mind before you buy fitted bedsheets is the size of your bed. Most people think that fitted sheets just have an elastic on regular sheets, this is far from the truth. Fitted sheets also feature 4 stitches all across the four corners of the sheet, this is what makes sure it’ll actually end up fitting your bed in a perfectly square shape at the end, otherwise, it wouldn’t actually hold on to the mattress and you would still have to tuck it in!
Making sure you read the product description and buy the right sized sheets for your bed is key to get the right sheets for you. Fitted sheets come in all sizes: single, twin, double, queen and king.
Not only do you need to know the size of your bed but also need to know what the depth of your mattress is. This is essential, otherwise, your sheets will get stuck halfway down your mattress and that totally defeats the purpose of having fitted sheets. If they don’t make it all the way to the bottom of your mattress, they will not hold on to it and can just spring off of the mattress at any time.
