What size bed sheets should I buy for my queen 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 queen bed you should opt for queen bed sheets. Queen bed mattresses typically measure 153cm x 203cm, so bed sheets bought for your queen bed should measure around 153cm x 203cm for a fitted sheet, and 245cm x 274cm for a flat sheet.
It is also important to consider the depth of your mattress before purchasing your fitted queen sheets. Standard queen bed sheets are typically 33cm to 40cm deep. These will comfortably fit a standard queen bed mattress. If you have a pillow top or a pillow top and bottom queen bed mattress however, you may need to consider a deeper fitted sheet. The two sizes to fit deeper mattresses are:
- Mega Queen bed sheets - These are 50cm deep and will generally fit a pillow top queen mattress.
- Deluxe Queen bed sheets - These are 60cm deep and will fit pillow top and bottom queen mattresses.
