Size Chart

A big part of designing your bed is making sure each component fits perfectly. Our size chart is here to help you do just that. If you need to custom order a specific size or have any questions regarding measurements, please call one of our sales experts at 1-800-363-6080 or email at info@aulitfinelinens.com

Mattress Depths

Mattress depths now vary from 8” - 18” in thickness. There is no industry standard. If you have a mattress that is deeper than 12”, you may need to purchase jumbo-size sheets, as well as a jumbo-size duvet. This is a conversation you'll definitely want to have with one of our sales expert, once you've given them all your measurements. Even the width and length of mattresses are inconsistent, so please make sure to contact us if your measurements are not consistent with our size chart. Knowing your measurements is also important when you are purchasing your bedskirt and duvet cover.

 

Fitted Sheets

Due to the varying depths of mattresses, it's not always simple to purchase a fitted sheet that will fit generously over the sides without having to pull and tug every time you make your bed. We always recommend measuring the depth of your mattress, and then adding 5" - 6" to the depth. 

For example, if your mattress is 13" or 14" deep, we recommend a fitted sheet with an 18" pocket. If your mattress is 16" deep, we recommend a fitted sheet with a 20" pocket. The sheets will also shrink, so even though you may find the fitted sheet too big right out of the package, we assure you, after several washes, it will fit perfectly! (If it fits perfectly out of the package, it will be too small after several washes.)

If your mattress is smaller or larger than our standard sizes, please let us know by indicating your mattress measurements in the NOTES section of the CHECK OUT CART and we will custom order your fitted sheet by adding 4" to your depth. For example, if your mattress is 7" deep, we will order your fitted sheet with an 11"  pocket.

 

Duvets

Due to the varying depths of mattresses, it's not always simple to purchase a duvet that will hang generously over the sides and amply cover the gap where the mattress meets the box spring. We always recommend measuring the width, as well as the depth of your mattress, and then adding at least a few inches on either side to ensure proper coverage.

For example, if your king mattress is 76" wide, with a depth of 14", 
you will need to calculate as follows: 76 + 14 + 14 = 104"

In this example, your duvet needs to measure at least 104" wide just to barely reach the box spring. We therefore recommend that you add a minimum of 6- 10" to that measurement to accommodate duvet cover shrinkage as well as generous overhang on both sides, which means you will need a Jumbo King.

If you have a queen mattress that measures 60" wide, with a depth of 12",
you will calculate as follows: 60 + 12 + 12 = 84" In this example, a Queen duvet will be appropriate.

 

Bedskirts

The standard height of our bedskirt is 14”, but it can be custom ordered to your exact measurements through our store. Measure from the top of the box spring to the floor for an exact measurement. You can watch this video if you're unsure about how to measure. 

Our standard bedskirt style (unless otherwise indicated) is tailored with one center pleat on each panel, as well as at the corners. Corners are open to accommodate footboards, but can also be custom ordered with closed corners through our store.

We also make gathered (ruffled) bedskirts, as well as tailored bed skirts withoutpleats for a cleaner, more modern look. Both styles can be custom ordered though our store.
