How to Measure Your Mattress for a Sheet Set

Materials

Tape Measure

Dimensions

  • Width is the measurement from left to right across the top of the mattress
  • Length is the measurement across the top of the mattress from the head to the foot
  • Depth is the measurement of thickness from the highest point on the top edge of the mattress to the bottom edge

Directions

  1. First, consult the mattress dimensions chart and select the correct mattress size.
    (Measure the width and length of the mattress, if you are unsure.)
  2. Next, measure the depth of the mattress.
  3. Read the product description for the fitted sheet, which should list the mattress depth that the pockets will accommodate.
  4. Compare your new dimensions to the fitted sheet sizes.

Length, Width, and Depth of a Mattress

Example

  1. You consult the mattress dimensions chart; you determine that your mattress is a Queen size.
  2. Next, you measure the mattress depth as 15".
  3. You read that the fitted sheet will fit a mattress up to 17" deep.
  4. You would choose the Queen size for this fitted sheet, since it will accommodate your 15" deep mattress.
