What size bed sheets should I buy for my double bed?
While some bedding can be sized up, bed sheets should be bought according to the size of your mattress. That means if you have a double bed you should opt for double bed sheets. Double bed mattresses typically measure 138cm x 188cm, so bed sheets bought for your double bed should measure around 138cm x 188cm for a fitted sheet, and 228cm x 254cm for a flat sheet.
It is also important to consider the depth of your mattress before purchasing your fitted double sheets. Standard double bed sheets are typically 33cm to 40cm deep. These will comfortably fit a standard double bed mattress. If you have a pillow top or a pillow top and bottom double bed mattress however, you may need to consider a deeper fitted sheet like a mega double fitted bed sheet which features a 50cm wall.

Remember to always check the sizing under the product description before purchasing double sheets to ensure that variations in sizing standards between brands do not get in the way of your good night’s sleep.
