Any recommendations on a fitted sheet for a king size bed with a deep mattress - outs keeps coming off at the corners and it is very annoying!

Lurking. I now have arm muscles like popeye from heaving this thing over the edges. Of course once I have done it's lovely and taut!

No suggestions but I would like to know the answer to this too, have seriously considered stapling the sheet to the bed!

"Deep" fitted sheets are sold. Google it - I know that Next has them, I saw them the other day.

These stopped our sheets escaping!!

I've got something similar to teen, these.

They are dead easy to use as you can clip them on loose, then tighten them with the toggle.

Lurking? Will do some investigations into the straps. Never thought about getting that sort of thing. Thanks.

As in I can't help but want to know the answer too smile

Flat sheets are much better.

I have a very deep mattress Dunelm sells 28cm and 32cm deep fitted sheets and next sell extra deep ones too.

We have Dunelm extra deep fitted sheets and they work beautifully . QVC also sell nice deep fitted sheets , the next ones are not deep enough for our mattress .

M&S have dimensions of their sheets on their website; I measured the depth of the mattress and chose the relevant style and am very happy - no slippage whatever!

HoF sell deep fitted sheets. And they are lovely quality too.

John Lewis do them. I have them and they are great. I think they only come in white.

I buy wide elastic and put a strip about 8 inches at an angle on my Dunelm fitted sheets. I tried those clip on things but they couldn't cope with all my wriggling about in bed due to my insomnia. I can't lift up the extra deep mattress but I have a big strong husband who changes the bed.

I tried those strap things with the toggles and whilst they worked, they were a bloody faff to put on or off. My mattress is so heavy, it was very difficult, and the amount of times the damned things pinged back at me and hurt me....I swore a lot. I gave up on them as it was just too much hassle.

M&S do some good deep and extra deep ones. The "deeper" ones are 30cm deep and the extra deep 38cm, designed to go over deep mattresses plus a topper.
