Why You Need Custom Sheets in Your Life

Updated: Mar 30, 2023

The Many Benefits of Custom Sheets

Have you ever unpacked an expensive set of sheets you ordered from a store online only to realize that for some reason they don’t fit the size of your perfectly standard mattress? Or worse, the 800+ thread count sheets match your mattress initially, but stretch or tear after the first wash, at which point they may not even be returnable. Whether you have a wonderful custom mattress that regular sheets won’t fit, or you are just sick of buying and returning sheets that don’t work with your bed, the solution is simple: custom sheets.

Custom fitted sheets offer a range of benefits that can make them a worthwhile investment for anyone who wants a better fit and a higher quality of bedding. One of the most significant advantages of personalized sheets is that they are tailored to fit your specific bed size. Proper measurements ensure a snug and secure fit that won't shift or slip around while you sleep.

Characteristics of a good fit

A good fit is essential for getting the most out of your sheets, whether you have a standard-size mattress or one a custom. A well-fitted sheet should be snug and secure, with no loose or baggy areas that can shift or bunch up during the night.

  • Depth: Custom made fitted sheets should be deep enough to accommodate the thickness of your mattress and any extra toppers or padding you may have. If your fitted sheet is too shallow, it can slip off the corners of the mattress, causing discomfort and frustration. A deep fitted sheet will stay in place throughout the night, ensuring that you can sleep soundly without any disturbances.

  • Length: For those with extra long mattresses or taller bed frames, it's important to look for sheets that are long enough to cover the length of the bed. You don't want to leave any gaps or exposed areas. This is especially important for flat sheets. They should comfortably cover you and your partner's shoulders while staying tucked in at the foot of the bed.

  • Elasticity: A well fitted sheet should have strong and durable elastic, a characteristic more common in custom made sheets. They withstand movement and pressure without losing its shape or elasticity. The elastic should be tight enough to keep the sheet in place, but not so tight that it creates discomfort or restricts movement.

  • Material: The quality of the material used for your sheets can also affect how well they fit and feel. High-quality materials like cotton, bamboo, or linen are more breathable and durable. They can help prevent sheets from slipping or bunching up during the night.

The main benefit of custom sized sheets is that they work without any fuss. When you invest in sheets that are tailored to fit your bed precisely, you won't have to worry about struggling to stretch them over corners. You won't be dealing with excess fabric that bunches up and wrinkles. Instead, you can rest easy knowing that your sheets will stay in place. They'll provide a comfortable, luxurious sleeping surface night after night.

High thread-count cotton sheets

Ordering custom sheets gives you a far higher guarantee that your sheets will not only be high-quality, but that they will match your specific preferences. There are many guides to buying the perfect sheets available on the internet, but the consensus is that cotton sheets are the best. Cotton is naturally cooling and soft, and great cotton sheets should become even softer after each wash. While there are debates about the best thread count for luxurious sheets, high quality sheets should typically have a thread count of at least 500 to guarantee your sheets have the softest feeling possible.

Ordering personalized sheets is a great way to ensure that your sheets meet your exact preferences. This includes your desired thread count, color, and pattern. Custom bedding makers offer a wide variety of high-quality cotton fabrics to choose from, and you're sure to find what you're looking for.

Custom needs for unique beds

If you have invested in a custom mattress with a fun shape, such as a round mattress or a mattress with notched corners, good custom sheets ensure that the luxury of your mattress is matched and complemented by the quality of your sheets. If you have a standard mattress but regular sheets have proven to be problematic, perhaps because of a mattress pad or other adjustments you have made, then custom sheets will end the cycle of buying and returning sheets for good. Instead, you can measure your mattress at home, send in the dimensions, and receive high-quality custom sheets from Custom Mattress Factory that were made just for you.
