Deep pockets are generally consider to be those sheets in the range of 15 to 24 inches.

How to buy deep pocket sheets

Once you have measured the depth of your mattress together with any mattress toppers you may have.

It’s important to include any toppers are these can add 3 to 5 inches more. Nothing worst than buying a lovely set of sheets only to find they don’t fit.

Go along to your local bedding store and look at the range they have. The great advantage to going in person to a store is you can get an accurate idea of the exact color, and the quality of the sheets.

Also there are sales people around that will be able to help you find the perfect sheets for you needs.

Alternatively there are many online businesses selling deep pocket sheets. Look out for products that have plenty of costumer reviews. Take some time to read these, remember people are more motivated to write reviews if they want to complain. Just get a general idea of the quality of the product.

For me I would recommend amazon, they have a large range of bedding. These come in a wide variety of materials from cotton to satin. Also, the range of different colors and patterns is huge.

Each product usually comes with plenty of customer reviews and Amazon is known for good customer service if there is a problem. Also, it is easy to return the goods if you find the sheets are not to your liking or damaged in some way.

Will deep pocket sheets fit a regular mattress?

While you can’t make a normal sized pocket fitted sheet fit a deep mattress you can however actually fit a deep pocketed sheet onto a thiner matteress.

This is done by tucking the sides well under the mattress almost like you would with a flat sheet. This should work well unless person using the bed is a really restless sleeper,

If the sheet still moves it is possible to buy sheet holder straps that anchor the sheets in place. I recommend these straps as they have 3 anchor points. If there is a lot of excess sheet material fold the sheets around the edges so the holder straps have something to anchor to.
