When it comes to sheets, a good fit is key. But queen fitted sheet only with too-loose or too-tight elastic can create annoying, hard-to-fix gaps that allow drafts to sneak in and cause a rustling sound while you sleep. That’s why it’s important to measure your mattress before you buy a new set of queen fitted sheet only.
Luckily, there are some easy tricks to help you find the right fit. First, try comparing your mattress measurements to the dimensions of standard Full-size sheets: 60 inches wide by 80 inches long. Standard queen-size sheets should fit a mattress up to 16 inches thick. If your mattress is even slightly bigger than that, you might be able to use Full sheets (tucked on all sides) as a fitted sheet with the addition of a few sheet straps.
