Hello. Sometimes it takes adding an accessory like fitted sheet suspenders or replacing your elastic to make it tighter.
Mattress have gotten very tall over the years and generous deep pocket sheets seem to be more common than the fitted sheets of years ago.
Alternatively another option would be to sew more elastic on your sheets to alter to make a tighter fit. Heres some helpful links that might give you more ideas and details. I hope this helps.
Check this out:
We have a split king bed and our most expensive set of sheets have a wide piece of elastic sewn on that runs under the mattress at an angle. This helps keep the sheets on really well considering the amount of moving our mattresses do.
Go on the internet to search for this. They are garter like pieces that attach the the corners and they form a “V” under the corner of the mattress. They are VERY inexpensive and work great. I don’t know what they are called, sorry.
In the future measure your mattress depth before you buy sheets and make sure the sheets have a deep enough pocket so you don’t have this problem (mattress are deeper than they used to be).
Hi Jewel: I had this problem, too. What I did was to get some of the large safety pins and pinned the sheet to the mattress at the corners, sides and ends. Worked for me:) Good luck
