Fitted sheets in the UK were once only made in single, double, king and super king.
Often made from cotton or polycotton fabrics, elasticated at the four corners for a snug fit and generally had a box depth of 10 inches to accommodate standard British mattress sizes.
Slowly other sizes have been introduced such as the popular small double or 4FT fitted sheets and the latest option is the 75cm x 200cm and 90cm x 200cm fitted sheets that are normally used for electric beds.
Some manufactures are now using European sizes to make their beds, anything that is 200cm long is usually sold as a euro style but some of the widths are not standard such as 100cm, 140cm and the Euro king size 160cm x 200cm.
Bed shops sell beds and mattresses onto their customers without giving them a selection of fitted sheets and mattress protectors that are size suitable, often leaving them to pay for made to order sheets that are a considerable cost.
