Have you ever tried to fit a fitted sheet but one corner just won’t stay? Before you know it, you’re huffing and puffing, desperately begging the fitted sheet to stay in place. Now imagine a sheet that is easy to put on and stays in place. Welcome to the new world of fitted sheets.
To remedy these common annoyances, two brothers created the bedding company The Lad Collective. They introduced fitted sheets that included labeled straps to show where the corners were and straps attached to each corner making it easy to place the sheet over the bed.
After receiving over three million views on one of their TikToks, people seemed to like their idea and their product received five star reviews on their website. (1)
One of the most popular comments read, “As someone with chronic pain, I LOVE this and feel it would be so helpful.” (1)
While adding elastic to fitted sheets to hold them in place is nothing new, it has grown in popularity with brands now ensuring their products have this feature.
SOMÉ, a global luxury wellness brand, has launched a new line of sheets to help tackle another sleep problem, night sweats.
There are many sheets on the market to keep you cool at night, SOMÉ continuous cooling sheets feature the first of its kind temperature regulation technology. The technology is designed to keep the body at an ideal temperature throughout the night.
Not only do these sheets help prevent unnecessary sweating, they are also equipped with elastic and corner elastic bands to ensure they stay in place, and the fitted sheet is labeled as long and short so you don’t have to you wonder if you are putting in the right way.
Martin Seeley, sleep expert and founder and CEO of Mattress Next Day, told Sleepopolis that it’s good that more sheets are coming with the addition of an elastic band.
“By holding the sheet securely in place, these straps reduce the need for many adjustments during the night,” Seeley said. “Elastic straps help provide a more solid sleeping environment by preventing the sheet from slipping, allowing for uninterrupted sleep.”
Now, instead of worrying about your sheets moving off the bed while you sleep, Seeley explains that your sleep quality can improve knowing that the elastic is doing its job all night long.
Why do you need a good fitted sheet?
Even if you’re just getting on board with the latest fitted sheet trends, Sealy explained the main reason why it’s important to have a good fitted sheet to sleep on.
- It helps to protect the mattress from allergens, precipitation and dirt.
Trying to keep your mattress protected from this build-up over the years can help with the longevity of the bed.
- Improves sleep health through a clean sleep environment.
Nobody wants something unsanitary. Having a fitted sheet that you wash regularly adds a level of cleanliness to your sleeping space.
- Provide a smooth, wrinkle-free sleeping surface.
By having this smooth layer between you and your mattress, it can lead to more uninterrupted and restful sleep, which we can all use.
After all, a well-made bed can lead to a well-rested night’s sleep, so the next time you’re looking for new sheets, you’ll know what to look for.
