Sheets

  • Fitted sheets for a twin mattress measure 39 inches by 76 inches. The size of the flat sheet isn't too important since it will be large enough to hang over the sides and edges and is not an exact fit to the mattress.

Pocket Size

  • Mattress depth will affect sheet pocket size. A standard mattress is 7 inches to 9 inches deep. Standard twin sheets are made to these dimensions. Pillow top and deep sided mattresses are becoming more common. Deep mattresses range up to 15 inches deep and extra deep mattresses are 15 inches to 22 inches deep. Verify the side depth of the mattress and buy sheets accordingly.
