Good Question: Fitted Sheet Fiasco — Help!

We have a minor problem that is causing me and my partner serious stress — hopefully the AT crowd can give us some ideas so we can keep our sanity. Our fitted sheet(s) will not stay put! We've tried several different sheet types and thread counts but I think it's us, not the sheets. We both prefer tight fitted sheets but we just can't keep all four corners tucked in!

We sleep on a full size bed and currently have only tried full size sheets — should we move up to queen size sheets? Will the extra length stay tucked in or will it just be more material to come loose?? Is there some DIY contraption I could build to keep the fitted sheet pulled taunt beneath the mattress? I know this isn't the typical AT question but we can't possibly be the only sleep partners with this problem...right? We'll try anything! Thanks, Sean & Cindy
