My daughter ordered a new twin bed mattress. I had to get new bed sheets because this new mattress has a much taller height, 13 inches. I went to JC Penney and purchased their sheets that claimed to have contour bottom sheet but they had elastic corners only and failed to fit properly. It would take me over 5 minutes to get the bottom sheet to fit.
My next purchase was Sleep Philosophy Copper Touch twin sheet which had elastic completely around the bottom sheet and the height was near perfect.
My only concern was that the material was very thin. The top sheet did wrap under the foot of the mattress OK but not as long as I would like.
I decided to buy Sit & Sleep Dreamfit sheets which I know were perfect because mom and dad use the sheets. I tried to order them from Sit & Sleep but their web site failed me for about a week because their outrageous shipping charges, $1,329.35. I called twice to their customer service to ask them to fix this problem but no improvement. I just kept trying to order and finally one day, the total cost was less than $110 including tax and shipping. The order took almost a week to arrive. It was impossible to track the order, which now I consider a bit unprofessional. But, I LOVE these sheets for how they are expected to feel and how easy they are to put on a bed.
They have excellent construction, and fit perfectly. The bottom sheet goes on quickly. At each corner is a colored strap, called FIRSTFIT CORNER, that tells you which ends of the fitted sheet go toward the head and feet of the mattress. On a twin bed these colored straps are not important so much but on more square mattresses this really helps. The top sheet is perfect as it has good side dimensions and the foot dimension where the sheet goes under the mattress is shockingly long – really professional.
However, my daughter’s “Egyptian” Cotton sheets feel way less smooth and soft than the ones that mom and dad have on their bed. I checked the labels of my new daughter’s pillow case fabric tag and it said only “100% Cotton”.
Mom and dad’s pillow case tag says 70% Viscoss from bamboo, 30% cotton. Very strange. I guess I do not trust Dreamfit providing specified material just very good construction.
Note that Dreamfit has their own web site: https://dreamfit.com/sheets.html
If you decide to buy sheets, please be aware that the above links are for twin sheets. Make sure you search for your correct mattress size.
