    Try these sheet suspenders

    Hi Alfreda,

    This is Linda. When I put sheets on our bed, I make sure that the corners and sides go down under the mattress which helps them stay tight. Today's sheets are made deeper to fit the newer deep mattresses so if your's isn't deep that can cause the slippage. You can do everything from buying "sheet suspenders" to tying knots in the corners to make them tighter or even using safety pins, double sided tape or clips under the mattress to hold the sheet tighter. I hope this helps you. Wishing you the best.

    At the dollar store and WM you can get these clips with pinchers on each end of a band of elastic. They are not expensive and come in sets of 2 or 4. You put your fitted sheet on the bed and then connect the clips to the sheet on either side of the corner down about 3 to 4 inches. My son swears by them!

    Hi! I've used the suspenders for sheets and they worked. My mother-in-law used to add elastic to the corners so that the elastic sits underneath the corner of the mattress. I try to buy only deep pocket sheets for that reason.
