Fitted Sheets

Q1. What is a fitted sheet & what are its advantages?

A fitted sheet is a bedsheet with the edges sewn so that they fit over the corners of a mattress and do not have to be folded. Traditionally, elastic bands hold these sheets firmly in the right place. Their function is to protect the bed and ensure a smooth, soft surface for you to lie on. 


Advantages of fitted bedsheets include: 

  • Protection: A fitted sheet offers protection for your mattress from normal wear and tear. 

  • Provides a Snug Fit for a Smooth Sleeping Surface

  • Is Easily Removable for Cleaning

  • Easy to put on the bed


Q2. Are Portico’s fitted sheets elasticated on all the edges?

Yes, Portico’s fitted sheets have elasticated corners, designed to be pulled over the mattress. This ensures a snug and secure fit. On the other hand, flat bedsheets are levelled and rectangular. They fold and lie flat on any surface. 


Q3. What sizes do fitted sheets come in? 

Portico’s fitted bedsheets come in three sizes:


Sheet Size

Centimeters

Fitted Double Size Bedsheet

150 X 198 cms + Drop Size - 20 cms

Fitted King Size Bedsheet

182 x 198 cms + Drop Size - 20 cms


Q4. What is ‘drop size’? How does it affect the fit?

Drop size is a term used to refer to the depth of the mattress, from the tape edge to the center of the upper crown. In simple words, the height from the top of the bed to the part where the mattress sits is termed as the drop. A flat bedsheet will need enough drop to be tucked under the mattress, while a fitted bedsheet has elastic bands which hold it firmly in the right place.


Q5. What are the contents of Portico’s fitted sheet sets?

Portico’s fitted sheet sets contain the following contents:

  • 100% Cotton Fitted Sheet - Single, Double or King Size

  • 2 (or 1 in case of single size)Reversible Pillow Covers - 46 X 69 cms


Q6. How do I care for my fitted sheets? 

Fitted bedsheets are very easy to clean and maintain. Simply observe the following steps while washing your sheets:

  • Machine Wash (Warm)

  • Wash Dark Colours Separately 

  • Do Not Bleach

  • Tumble Dry, Normal Low Heat

  • Iron Medium


Q7. - How Do I Fold Fitted Bedsheets?

Folding fitted bedsheets is an art in itself. Here are some instructions you should follow while folding your elastic bed covers:

  • Grasp the fitted sheet with one hand in each of the top corners.

  • Double up the bedsheet in half, neatly tucking in the corners.

  • Fold the sheet in half once more, ensuring all four fitted corners meet.

  • Flip the right set of corners over the left set, forming a perfect rectangle.

  • Double the sheet in half lengthwise, then fold it into thirds.
