How to Check Fitted Sheet Sizes?

 measuring for a custom fitted sheet

To get your perfect fitted sheet size, all you need to do is to enter the measurements of your mattress only. This is why measuring for a custom fitted sheet is very simple. Take these 3 steps:

  1. Measure the width of the mattress (W)
  2. Measure the length of the mattress (L)
  3. Measure the depth of the mattress (D)

For your convenience, use a measuring tape, get a pen and a piece of paper. To measure the width, stretch the measuring tape across the mattress from the bottom right corner to the bottom left corner. To get the length, place the tape at a top bed corner, where the headboard is. Then, stretch it towards the footboard to meet the bottom bed corner. This is the length of your fitted sheet. To take the depth (or thickness), measure the distance between the top of the mattress and its bottom. This dimension determines how deep the pockets of your fitted sheet should be.

However, if you have a mattress pad or topper, you would have to enter the total height of the bed. The extra padding would surely add a few inches on top of the bed. You might need some deep pocket sheets. Don’t worry about determining the fitted sheet depth. We will do that for you and also allow for shrinkage of the fabric.

How to Take the Right Dimensions of Flat Sheets?

When it comes to dimensions of flat sheets, they are mostly up to your taste - you need to specify only the desired length and width. Keep in mind that these measurements should extend over the size of your mattress.

How much would you like your custom flat sheet to drape? Maybe you want to tuck it all in or let it hang freely? Add those inches twice to the width of your bed, as the flat sheet will cover both sides of your mattress. For the length of the flat sheet, you’d need to consider if you need it to go all the way over the footboard or not.

Now that you have calculated the length and the width of your flat sheet, you are good to go. Then, use the ordering tool to:

  1. Enter the desired width of the top/flat sheet
  2. Enter the desired length of the top/flat sheet

To calculate the price for a top sheet, please enter the desired width and length (first width (W), then length (L)) of the sheet itself.

How to Measure Sheets for a Round Bed Mattress?

Circular shaped beds require custom round bedding that matches their shape and size. How to measure the round mattress, though? First, you’d need to get the size of the diameter right.

The length and width are the same in this case. Then, check the thickness of the round bed. For example, round King beds usually have a diameter of 87”, and their thickness is anywhere between 10” to 12”.

Do you need a flat sheet for your round bed? Think about how much you’d like it to drop over the mattress. Keep in mind that the ultimate shape of a top sheet for a round bed is square.

For the fitted round sheet, you have to enter the same number for length and width, which stands for the diameter. Then, fill in the depth of the round mattress. This number will show our team your fitted sheet depth.

What Size Duvet Cover Do I Need?

measuring guide for duvet covers

If you are shopping for custom duvet covers, you’d need to know the size of your insert, either duvet or comforter. The ordering tool will ask you for two dimensions: length and width. These numbers stay for the length and width of the duvet.

  1. Measure the width of your duvet or comforter.
  2. Measure the length of your duvet or comforter.

When you enter the width and length of the insert, the ordering tool will automatically calculate the price of the fitting duvet cover. We will estimate the final dimensions so it can fit perfectly. Also, we cut and sew the fabrics with shrinkage in mind.

Online Price Calculator for Custom Bed Sheet Sizes

Through our website, we provide our customers with a unique way to order customized bedding: simply enter the desired measurements for your bedding and the online calculator for custom sizes will directly provide you with a price for your customized bedding. You will not need to contact us to obtain quotations like with most other web sites. We manufacture bed linen for rectangular as well as round and odd-shaped mattresses.

Shrinkage of the Fabric and Sheet Sizes

Cotton is a natural fiber, and as such, it will suffer a certain amount of shrinkage, typically about 2-5% upon initial washing and drying cycles. When manufacturing products, we allow for such shrinkage and cut the fabric a little larger so that your linen shrinks to the correct size when you first wash it.

We cannot start production on your order until we have all the necessary measurements. Feel free to contact us at info@custom-bedding.com if you have any questions about measuring.
