ATTACHED WATERBED SHEETS
This type of waterbed sheet has the fitted and flat sheet attached or sewn together at the foot. Many people prefer this type of waterbed sheet because the fitted sheet helps to keep the flat sheet in place on the waterbed since they are sewn together.
WATERBED SHEETS WITH POLE ATTACHMENTS/ CORNER FLAP
This type of waterbed sheet is also attached, sewn together at the footer to help keep them in place. But in addition to this, each corner has an attachment sewn on that a small pole slides into. This pole attachment is tucked under the waterbed mattress and helps to keep the fitted sheet in place. Many people like this type of waterbed sheet because they say the pole attachments help to keep the fitted sheet from riding up.
What is the difference between regular sheets and waterbed sheets?
Although outside waterbeds use standard sheet sizes, a hard side waterbed most certainly does not. Compared to a regular or conventional mattress and box spring, a waterbed will need larger sheets. This is because a waterbed needs sheets that allow for more movement and space, because of the natural wave motion of a waterbed.
Also, there are few wood-framed hard side waterbeds that are different in size than a traditional mattress, regular sized bedding will not fit properly, so it is necessary to have waterbed sheets that are specifically designed for them. Our selection of waterbed sheets is unparalleled. We have everything from the best quality cotton sheets that have a higher thread count. The higher the thread count, the softer the feel, and the longer they will last.
Most waterbed sheets are available in the sizes of California King, Queen, and Super Single, and should not be confused with the regular or conventional mattress sizes of full, queen, twin, etc.
Unlike regular mattresses, the waterbed has different features. It takes the right kind of sheets to cover a waterbed mattress. You cannot cover a waterbed mattress with sheets made for the regular mattresses and expect it to fit perfectly or to go with the nature of the waterbed mattress.
A feature of the waterbed sheets that allows it to have a smooth surface finish is the deep pockets that allow the sheets to be pulled and tucked from underneath the waterbed mattress. The surface easily becomes smooth and crease-free because of the pull of the sheets from beneath the waterbed.
