    Struggling with bedding 23rd Nov 17 at 8:16 PM
    Bedding really breaks my nerves.
    1) The fitted sheet always gets off, perhaps due to the mattress sitting on top of the bed without and lateral support.
    2) The duvet gets folded inside the duvet cover.

    How can I solve these problems easily? It's really so annoying.

    You need to get the right size. Measure depth of mattress rather than just buying a double fitted sheet. Buy one appropriate so it can fit right round at the corners. (Mattress sitting on top of base is normal and not an issue)
    Iíve never had a duvet fold inside the cover during normal use. Always remove duvet cover for washing!

    Buy the right size for your mattress - they aren't all the same depth, so measure before purchasing.

    Sounds as if you are using a duvet cover which is much too large.

    Guys, it is impossible to check the depth of a fitted sheet and other dimensions. The only info available is the size, ie SINGLE, DOUBLE, KING.

    I am pretty sure the problem is not that they are not deep enough, they just come out very easily!

    One example here:

    30cm deep https://www.soakandsleep.com/classic-200tc-egyptian.html
    40cm deep https://www.soakandsleep.com/classic-200tc-egyptian.html

    Have you tried sheet holders ? https://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=sheet+holders&!!!!!googhydr-21&index=aps&hvadid=196716214511&hvpos=1t1&hvnetw= g&hvrand=3805590520754207513&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt =e&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006742&hv targid=kwd-304660817459&ref=pd_sl_45gbl1ogyc_e_p28

    It depends where you shop. Decent stores have the measurements online or on the item.

    Guys, I need:

    1) zipped matress protector (but I want to be protected from a used matress, not to protect the matress from me, so I need it dust proof etc)
    2) zipped bed sheets

    Any link? I can only find american companies

    Sounds as if buying a new mattress might be a good idea.
