I am having the hardest time getting a mattress pad for the bed I recently purchased. I have a king size pillow top mattress that is 16" deep. All of these pads that are "guaranteed to fit up to 18" deep" just barely make it around the corners and slip off easily. Someone suggested a "bed glove" which has wide elastic all the way around and fits great, but it is a few inches too small for my mattress and again, the corners just make it on and then slip off.

I've wasted enough effort, gas and shipping charges from having to buy and return mattress pads that do not stay on.

Anyone here have an extra deep mattress and any suggestions?

Thanks

my grandma gave me some b/c i was having the same problem.. however (and correct me people if i am wrong) but you can get "California King Size" and they are so big they are more than enough space so i had to tuck them under on all sides.

i'm not sure if that is what they are called or not.. good luck! i know sheets for our king sizes are very pricey, esp. for a good quality.

Yes, a Cal King size is 78 X 84 as opposed to 78 X 80. I suppose that would work. I never thought of it.

I never realized how expensive bed sheets were until I bought this bed.

Thanks for the info.
