Where can I buy sheets for a thin mattress?

aggieroseJuly 16, 2012

I need more sheets for my girls bed but everything I'm finding is for thick, pillow top mattresses. My girls are only 3 so we just bought them a regular, thin mattress, not a pillow top. Do they still sell sheets to fit these mattresses? I don't want to have to tuck lots of material in all around the bed.

Unless you want to sew elastic....I think tucking is your only option.

UGH!! I think I would have splurged on a pillow top if I had know I couldn't buy sheets that fit! The big ones come off all the time!

You can get stretchy things that go under the mattress and clamp on to the sheets to hold them on at places like BB&B. I've used them in my camper. :)

You could also get an inexpensive but thick memory foam topper and pretend you have a pillowtop.

The stretchy things look like garter belts - if you're old enough to know what those are! LOL

Do they still make sheets for sofa beds? Those were always much thinner.
