Garnet Hill’s hemstitched percale sheets fit mattresses up to 15” tall. While this is considered officially “extra-deep,” it’s nowhere near deep enough for our big boy. The sheets are good quality, though, and compared to some, they’re pretty affordable. Prices range from $20 for a pillowcase to $65 for a king-size fitted sheet.
Pottery Barn sheets fit mattresses up to 18” deep, which will work for most pillow-tops. We’ve heard good things about their quality as well, but have never experienced them in person. They’ve got several organic cotton sets available too. Set prices range from $129 to $239, depending on size and thread count.
Most of Lands’ End’s sheets are designed to fit up to 22”-deep mattresses. We like solid-color sheets, but they come in a wide selection of preppy patterns too, if that’s your thing. Set prices range from $109.50 to $199.50 (for the highest-end bamboo/cotton king-size set).
The Company Store’s Charisma line fits mattresses up to 22” deep. Their Supima cotton line is also available in supersize (for 20”-deep mattresses). Prices for single items (not sold in sets) range from $40 to $180.
Luxury sheets from Macy's: Ralph Lauren and the Hotel CollectionFor something luxurious, Macy’s carries these Ralph Lauren “Estate Sateen” sheets, which fit 21”-deep mattresses. The rich colors are nice, but they’re pricey: each piece will run around $100. Finally, if your mattress is a gigantic cousin of our own, and you’re willing to spend $135 to $175 per sheet, Macy’s Hotel Collection extra-deep 600 thread count sheets fit mattresses up to 25 whole inches deep! Wow. Once the recession's over, we’ll never break a sweat trying to stretch that last corner around our mattress again.
