Comprehensive UK Bedding Sizes Guide

Do you sometimes hesitate whether the bedding you're going to buy will ideally fit the size of your bed? Will your new luxurious bed linen be a perfect match to your pillows and duvets? Will your new comfortable mattress topper or mattress protector suit flawlessly? Forget about your worries with our UK bedding sizes guide! At Lancashire Textiles, we are used to taking good care of our customers. That's why we decided to provide you with a useful UK bedding size chart that will help you not to get lost while making a choice.

Why You Should Know UK Bedding Sizes

Are you an "international shopper" who is browsing numerous websites of various textiles manufactures to find the bedding of your dream? Then, sometimes, you may get confused when it comes to selecting the proper size. Frankly speaking, it's not surprising. The fact is that the measuring system of the UK bedding sizes differs from that of the USA or Australia, for instance. The names of the bed linen or mattress sizes aren't the same worldwide.

Did you know that Small Double bed size exists only in Britain or that the bed referred to as King in the UK bedding size chart is called Queen in the US and Canadian size charts? Therefore, before ordering something, it's a wise idea to get acquainted with the bedding size chart, the manufacturer or seller's website offers.

At Lancashire Textiles, the happiness of our clients is a top priority. We are here not just to provide you with quality bedding, but to give you an exceptional experience of comfortable rest and sound sleep.

UK Bedding Sizes

Have you ever made desperate efforts while stretching a fitted sheet over your mattress before going to sleep? Even though you seemed to succeed finally, you woke up next morning feeling unrested with your bed sheet crumpled up underneath. The reason is evident - you've bought a fitted sheet of the wrong size. It will never happen to you again if you take the time to study the UK bedding size chart given below and follow our brief recommendations.

If you are going to buy a fitted sheet, you want it to sit on your mattress snugly. It means that its size should be as close to your mattress size as possible. What's more, pay attention to the pocket depth. It can range from 25 to 46 cm. So, it's necessary to measure your mattress depth before making a purchase.

Mattress Toppers & Mattress Protector UK Sizes

It's a simple fact that mattress toppers and mattress protectors should sit flush against your mattress. If they don't fit the dimensions in full, they won't be able to fulfil the intended functions properly. In case you fail to purchase the right size, your bed may look and feel uneven. Besides, if a mattress protector is too tight, it puts stress on the seams and zippers, resulting in a shorter lifespan.

It's quite evident that the size of a mattress topper as that of a mattress protector entirely depends on the size of your mattress. To cope successfully with the task, you should know your mattress length, width, and depth. It will allow you to determine which size mattress topper or protector you need to turn your night sleep into a completely relaxing experience. Our UK bedding sizes guide will help you with it.

UK Pillow Sizes

Though there is an opinion that the size of a pillowcase doesn’t matter as much as the size of a fitted sheet or mattress topper, it's not quite right. A too big pillowcase will let your pillow shift inside it throughout the night. As a result, it can turn your night sleep into the nightmare. A too small pillowcase can make your softest pillow seem hard and prevent you from enjoying the deserved rest. What’s worse, it may even cause morning headaches and neck pains that last long. Therefore, we couldn’t but include pillow sizes in our UK bedding sizes guide.

As a rule of thumb, a good pillowcase should be about 8-13 cm larger than the pillow itself. As soon as you know the sizes of your pillows, it won't be a problem to calculate the right size of the pillowcase.
