Sheets with elastic: what sizes are and how to choose the right one?

Recent years in the market for household products are gaining popularity sheets for beds with elastic bands. They have a number of advantages over ordinary sheets, but you should carefully prepare for the purchase. Our article is devoted to the size range of such products and the features of their choice.

Features and benefits

The obvious and main difference between such a sheet and the usual one is the presence of an elastic band, which is sewn into the fabric around the perimeter. Eraser in the sheet is needed in order not to detect crumpled linen in the morning and not experience discomfort from contact with the mattress. In addition, when the sheets are constantly moving down, the mattress gets dirty faster, and washing it is not easy and expensive.

This sheet will not have to carefully refill under the mattress or between the wall and the mattress every time you change bed linen.No need to come up with various mounts to hold the sheets in place.

The latter is often used by parents for cots, as children can turn over in their sleep especially actively, but any additional devices are a risk of injury if they protrude or damage the mattress, bed and linen. A sheet with a rubber band solves all these problems.

However, it is not always possible to use such bedding. For such bed sheets it is imperative that the mattress be easily separated from the bed, because the principle of the product is that its edges cling to the mattress from the bottom, and the rubber band does not allow them to break loose and go upstairs. Therefore, if your mattress is part of the bed, you will have to use other options. In addition, due to the small number of options for such sheets, often the question of choosing the size. After all, the sheet should fit the mattress and the difference between 70 and 80 by 180 or 190 cm can be significant.

Size range

The size problem is gradually being solved by the emergence of more and more new models. There are already single beds (90x200, 160x80, 80x200 cm), double beds (120x190, 120x200, 140x200, 160x200, 180x200 cm), "euro" (220x240, 200x220 cm), 200x200 cm squares, etc. For baby cots, most often dimensions are 70x160, 80x160 and 120x60 cm.

In order to choose the right size of the sheet, measure not only the perimeter of the mattress, but also its height. After all, the area of ​​the sheet captures it, and an insufficient length can interfere with the normal tension and lead to a rapid deterioration of the gum.

As a rule, bed linen manufacturers make a table of sizes with which you can consult before buying.

The nuances of choice

Now you can pick up a sheet for every taste. The modern bedding market offers a wide range of colors, models with prints and even the ability to print patterns to order. In addition, there are full or partial sets of bedding, which include a sheet, pillowcases and a duvet cover or just a sheet and pillowcases.

The sheets are different and the material used in their manufacture. Not cheap, but very functional option - mattress pad made of moisture resistant plush or other similar fabric. Such model as waterproof DRY Plush 80x190 Ormatek perfectly will be suitable for single beds of both adults, and children.
