What size bed sheets should I buy for my single 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 single bed you should opt for single bed sheets. Single bed mattresses typically measure 92cm x 188cm, so bed sheets bought for your single bed should measure around 92cm x 188cm for a fitted sheet, and 180cm x 254cm for a flat sheet.
It is also important to consider the depth of your mattress before purchasing your fitted sheet. Standard single bed sheets are typically 33cm to 40cm deep. These will comfortably fit a standard single bed mattress. If you have a pillow top or a pillow top and bottom single bed mattress however, you may need to consider a deeper fitted sheet like a mega single fitted bed sheet which features a 50cm wall.

Will single bed sheets fit my long single bed?
Long single bed mattresses typically measure 92cm x 203cm so single bed sheets will not cover your long single bed. The single sheets for your long single bed should measure around 92cm x 203cm for a fitted sheet, and 200cm x 274cm cm for a flat sheet. Remember to always check the sizing under the product description before purchasing single sheets to ensure that variations in sizing standards between brands do not get in the way of your good night’s sleep.
