Mattresses are made thicker than they used to be years ago, and that means that if you have bought a new mattress recently, you may be in need of sheets with deep pockets. Or maybe your mattress is not that deep, but you have put a thick pad on it. Either way, there are sheets designed to solve these problems, and they come in all sizes and plenty of colors as well.

The mattresses of today are, for the most part, thicker than the older mattresses you might be used to. If you end up buying a new mattress, you may realize that you will also need a deep pocket cover to protect and fit over it. The good news is that no matter what size bed you have, be it twin or king-size, there are deep pocket covers that will fit your size bed.

If you own a pillow top style mattress, you know how comfortable they are and how thicker they are than your normal run of the mill mattress. Because of the added padding, you may find yourself needing deep pocket sheet sets that can accommodate a thicker mattress than what you already have. The good thing is that deep pocket sheets come in a wide variety of colors and fabric, fitting anything from a twin bed mattress to a queen.

In the quest for the perfect sleep, I have found that a thin memory foam mattress to go on top of my existing mattress works wonders. If you have also found the addition of a foam topper to be helpful you may have noticed that it is a tad more difficult to cover the topper and mattress with your existing bed sheet. If this is the case, I would recommend buying an extra deep pocket bed sheet that will fit any mattress addition nicely with no more tugging.
