If you’ve found your way to this article, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with (and tired of) the physical battle that is squeezing a too-small fitted sheet over an unyielding mattress. But this doesn’t have to be your routine. Most standard sheets only fit mattresses up to around 14 inches high, but the best deep-pocket sheets offer an additional 1 to 10 inches of material.

For the best fit, you’ll want to figure out the height of your mattress before you start shopping. Be sure to measure the mattress at its thickest point (which may mean the center of the bed rather than the edge — especially if you use a plush mattress topper). According to design site Hunker, you should then add 2 inches to your mattress height to determine what pocket depth your sheets need to be. When in doubt, I recommend going a little bigger with your sheets — it’s much easier to tuck away extra material than it is to wrestle with a sheet that’s too small.

Below, you’ll find my list of the best sheet sets on Amazon, which includes a wide range of pocket sizes, from 18 to 24 inches. And if you only need a fitted sheet, I’ve included something on this list for you, too. Read on to find your perfect fit, so you can make your bed and lie in it (and your sheets will finally stay in place).

The Classic Cotton Set That Comes In 7 Muted Hues

Material: 100% cotton

Pocket depth: 18 inches

What makes it great: These deep-pocket cotton sheets are luxe feeling, durable, and designed to stay put with extra wide elastic. The 500-thread-count material is made with long-staple cotton and a sateen-woven damask stripe for an attractive luster and a soft feel. This four-piece set in comes with two standard pillowcases, a flat sheet, and a fitted sheet that has 18-inch pockets. On top of all that, the sheets are available in seven classic colors and six sizes — and they won’t break the bank either.

One reviewer wrote: “So many sheet sets claim to be deep pocket but really aren’t. These Feather and Stitch sheets have added elastic at the corners that snugs the bottom sheet below the mattress and then the sheet extends a few inches more to a full elastic edge. […] I line dry all my washing and like crisp, wrinkle-free sheets, but these are really silky and soft compared with the other all-cotton sheets that I have. […] I put a thick feather bed topper on my bed for winter, and the bottom sheet still has plenty of sheet to snug under the mattress and not pull up on the sides or the ends.”

  • Available sizes: Twin, Full, Queen, King, California King, Split King
  • Available colors: 7 (including white, gray, and granite green)

One reviewer wrote: “This is the second time I’ve bought these sheets. The thing I love the most is that they have extremely deep pockets and the elastic in them keeps them in place no matter how much you toss and turn! The first set I have had for over a year now and the elastic hasn’t stretched out much and the fabric has held up even after washing them 1-2 times a week.”

  • Available sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, Split King
  • Available colors: 19 (including denim blue, light pink, and sage green)

One reviewer wrote: “I run warm and these silky smooth sheets are magical in their ability to keep me cool - but not cold - at night. They feel very luxurious and of high quality.”

Editor’s take: “I move around a lot in my sleep, and often wake up to find my fitted sheet halfway off the mattress. These sheets have deep, secure pockets that keep them securely in place. They have a soft, silky (but not slippery) texture that makes me legitimately excited to get into bed every night, and I love the soft blush pink color.” — Carina Finn, Bustle editor

They wash well, do not wrinkle, and look great on the bed.”

I have an older Tempur-Pedic bed that has a really thick mattress and adjustable base, and have never been able to find a good microfiber sheet that would stay on the mattress when I adjust the base. With the deep pockets and the corner elastics, this sheet stays exactly where it’s supposed to no matter how often I move the base.”

They help me to maintain the perfect body temperature. […] I’m also pleased that they fit my king bed. I find that most king sheet sets are too tight due to the thickness of my mattress. These fit my deep pocket bed very nicely.”
