This is a topic that is sensitive to many luxury linen manufactures.

  • Once upon a time, the thickness of mattresses were almost the same between various mattress manufacturers.
  • However, someone in the mattress industry got the notion to make mattresses thicker. We think it is due in part to consumers believe thicker was better.
  • Today we see mattresses ranging in thickness from 6” to 24” plus...
  • This has caused some headaches to linen manufacturers. Consumers have also learned to say, “the sheets don’ fit my mattress” rather than“ the mattress doesn’t fit my sheets”. 

Super thick mattresses may cause you sheet fit issues

To compensate for this, many linen manufacturers began producing extra deep pocket fitted sheets.

  • This solves most of the issues. Should you have a thin mattress, you will have a little more fabric to tuck in – typically this is not a problem.
  • If you own one of these super thick mattresses that is 20 + inches in depth, you may find it difficult to find sheets that will fit, unless you have them custom made.

If you are considering purchasing new linens, it is advisable to measure the thickness of your mattress, before you purchase your new linens.

Here is the most accurate way for doing it (measuring cord to cord may not be accurate).
