These sheets are excellent quality and are especially designed for waterbeds. They have many advantages over standard sheets.
A normal fitted sheet has short sides and does not fit properly over the mattress. These sheets have 13 inch corner seams and can easily cope with 12inch mattresses. Normal sheets can be forced over a waterbed mattress but will always be stressed and will rip over time -the sides will arch up to reveal the mattress. This sheet will fit perfectly.
These sheets are designed for use both softside and hardside mattresses.
These sheets are made of high quality stretch fabric with 97% cotton and 3% elasthan. A waterbed mattress moves constantly when in use. A normal cotton sheet cannot cope with this movement and will not stay in place - it will move up at the sides. These sheets cope perfectly with mattress movement to ensure a peaceful comfortable nights sleep.
These are substantial sheets. The double weighs approx 1100 grams and the super king about 1250 grams. This is a lot more than most department store sheets. The weight is needed in a waterbed as the mattress cannot absorb night-time perspiration. These sheets are designed to absorb moisture in the night and then evaporate it during the day. Thin sheets will not perform this function.
It will fit waterbeds measuring from 140cm by 200cm, up to beds measuring 160cm by 220cm ( 4ft 8in by 6ft 8in up to 5ft 4in by 7ft 4in ). If in doubt please ask.
