PIllowcases to fit tempura pillows

Have just bought a new mattress and bought 2 tempura pillows to go with it. After putting the covers on the pillows I'm finding the pillowcases are a really tight fit and the pillow is quite squashed inside. My pillowcases are approx 50x72 cms and I can't seem to find any that are any bigger. Anyone else had this problem and have managed get larger pillowcases.

    I seem to be plagued by this problem too, in particular M & S pillowcases are a tight fit. I've found that those from Next are generally a bit more generous. Or you could try those with a cuff all around (I think they're called Oxford pillowcases) Dorma do a good range but are pricier.

    John Lewis do a good range of Oxford pillowcases and they are wider and longer than the ordinary housewife style. No idea if they would be big enough.

  • Thanks for that Sarah1972 - I've had a look and you can get longer ones but the widths are all the same - I could really do with them being longer and wider - will keep looking

    There kingsize ones are 50x90 https://www.soakandsleep.com/terminology-sizing#bed-linen

    The actual Tempur ones are only 50x72 made to fit your pillow https://uk.tempur.com/accessories/luxury-bed-linen/tempur-fit-classic-pillow-case-UKCLPILCASE.html?cgid=luxury-bed-linen&start=1

    How about 56x86 ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oxford-luxury-pillowcase-pillow-Cotton/dp/B0756BH274
