Why We Love Deep Pocket Sheets

5 min read

Few things derail a productive day of working through your chore list like replacing your recently cleaned fitted sheet. Trying to stretch the fresh sheet around the corners of a mattress sounds simple enough, but it can quickly get frustrating. And who hasn't experienced the sensation of waking up in the middle of the night, only to find the bed sheet has decided to pull a disappearing act, leaving you sleeping on a bare mattress?

But before you deal with ill-fitted sheets, let us introduce you to the key for a smoother experience: deep pocket fitted sheets. These are also ideal for accessibility if you have trouble stretching a too-small fitted sheet over your bed. They offer increased durability and less pilling because they’re not constantly being stretched to their absolute limits.

Deep pocket sheets can support peaceful night of slumber, which isn’t a luxury — it’s a necessity for your overall well-being. To help improve your sleep experience, we’re here to share why we love deep pocket sheets and why we're confident you will too.

How To Choose Deep Pocket Sheets for Deep Mattress

When choosing the best deep pocket sheets to change making your bed from a frustrating time into a five-minute chore, look no further than Miracle deep pocket sheets. We've got your mattress covered, both literally and figuratively.

Choosing deep pocket fitted sheets isn’t merely about style or thread count (although those are indeed essential). It’s about considering the depth of your mattress and ensuring a harmonious fit. 

Don't worry; we're not talking about a whole lot of math here, just a simple tape measure job. For a perfect, bunch-free fit, selecting sheets that align with your mattress size and pocket depth measurements is crucial.

Standard sheets generally accommodate mattresses up to 14 inches deep. However, the need for deeper sheets is clear, with luxurious, thicker mattresses becoming increasingly popular. 

And if you have a mattress topper of any kind, you need to factor that in, too! That's where deep pocket sheets, designed for mattresses 15 inches deep or more, come to the rescue.

These are the champs for mattresses 16 to 22 inches deep, ensuring a snug fit, no matter the heft of your mattress. It also takes a lot of the stress out of desperately stretching a too-small fitted sheet over your bed, so now all you have to worry about is how to fold it properly.

Let’s Explore Miracle’s Deep Pocket Sheets

A deep pocket sheet set isn’t just about the measurements — it’s also about finding the perfect bed sheet set for you in addition to ensuring you have the right depth and size sheets. So let's pull back the covers and see why our Miracle Made® Sheet Set is about to change your world.

With our deep pocket sheets, there will be no more wrestling, no more adjustments, just a neatly-made bed every time you hit the hay. This is all thanks to their elastic all-around design and firm grip. Whether you’re dealing with a California king, king-size, or a Twin XL, we’ve got you covered, literally. 

But what does our bedding have to offer you beyond your fitted sheet? What sets our pillowcases, duvet covers, and even our flat sheet apart?

It’s all in the material. Our eucalyptus-based sheets are infused with natural silver, promising a sleep experience like no other. They’re ultra-soft and breathable, helping you stay at the perfect temperature all night long, reducing night sweats, comforting hot sleepers, and cutting down on extra laundry during the summer.

Common Questions for Deep Pocket Bed Sheets

In your pursuit of superior sleep comfort, it's only natural to have a few questions. Fret not; we're here to put your concerns to bed. Let's tackle some of the most common queries when it comes to deep pocket sheets.

  1. What are deep pocket sheets? Deep pocket sheets are the super-sized versions of standard sheets. Designed to fit mattresses thicker than the average, they come with a deeper pocket to ensure your sheets don’t bunch or slip off in the middle of the night. Think of them as the first step on the path to a perfect night's sleep on your pillow-top mattress, thick memory foam mattress, or any other luxuriously thick bed.

  2. How deep is a deep pocket sheet? Most deep pocket sheets are designed to fit mattresses between 15 to 18 inches in depth. However, some brands cater to even deeper mattresses — up to a whopping 22 inches with their extra deep pocket sheets.

  3. What is an extra deep pocket sheet? Usually designed for mattresses over 18 inches deep, extra deep pocket sheets like those we just touched go just a little bit deeper than most other bed linens, offering the perfect fit up to around 22 inches.

  4. How do I measure my mattress for deep pocket sheets? First, measure the width and length of your mattress unless you already know your mattress size (California King, Queen, or Twin XL). Next, measure the height of your mattress from top to bottom — this gives you the mattress depth, the number you need for the perfect deep pocket sheet. Include any mattress toppers or pillow tops in your calculation!

If you've got a thick mattress, you deserve to enjoy its comfort without any hitches. So let's toss out those standard sheets that leave you wrestling in the middle of the night and say hello to the snug fit and superior comfort of deep pocket and extra deep pocket sheets. No more trouble fitting your sheets: deep pockets are here!

Find Your Perfect Sheets

The key to quality sleep lies in a comfortable bed, starting with the perfect set of sheets. Investing in deep pocket sheets, especially ours, can truly transform your sleep experience — not to mention your entire weekend when you have to do less laundry because your sheets are anti-bacterial and spend less time making your bed afterward because your sheets fit perfectly.

Grab that tape measure, get those mattress dimensions right, and give your bed the deep pocket treatment it deserves. Sleep never felt (or looked) this good!
