We all have pet peeves. For some, it’s those who chew with their mouths open. For others, it’s a wobbly table you just can’t seem to get balanced. As for me, my biggest pet peeve is waking up to find that my fitted sheet has become, well, anything but fitted. I am someone who moves a lot in their sleep, so for as long as I can remember, my mornings have started with me curled up in a ball of sheets because my fitted sheet has popped off one or more of the corners. To say this has led to a lot of frustrating mornings would be the understatement of the century. But as annoying as this problem has been, it’s honestly one I never thought I’d ever find a solution for — that is until a random scroll through Amazon led me to the answer I’ve been searching for: Bed Band.

Designed to keep your fitted sheet in place all night long, Bed Band is the ultimate sheet strap system. Made to last, they feature durable elastic straps, a unique tension cord lock, and the pièce de résistance — nickel-plated clamps that have a rubber-grip fabric protector, so you can feel confident your straps will stay in place without tearing a hole in your sheet (something traditional sheet straps are notorious for doing). Best of all, they’re super easy to use: Simply attach both ends of the band to a corner of your sheet, slide the sheet over your mattress as usual, and tug on the cord lock to trigger the tension for a taut sheet.

As someone who thought they’d never see the day their sheets would stay in place, you could say I was more than excited to test out the Bed Band. After a quick sprint to the mailroom once I got the notification that my package had been delivered, I ripped open the box, pulled some freshly washed sheets out of the dryer, and prepared to make my bed. After slipping my fitted sheet on to get in the proper position, I folded up each corner one at a time and attached the four bands. Once I was done I took a step back and marveled at just how smooth my sheet looked. But now came the real test — sleeping. After a good night of tossing and turning I woke up, half expecting to find my sheet had once again popped off only to find everything was still in place. I was amazed and knew I would never sleep without my Bed Bands ever again.

Starting at just $13 for a pack of four, Bed Band comes in five colors and additional packs of eight, 12, and 16, so the whole family can get in on the joy of a properly fitted sheet. Now, I’m going to make a claim loud and proud here: Bed Band is a product I predict will soon become an essential part of many people’s sleep setup (if it isn’t already). So my advice? Get ahead of the curve and try them out for yourself today — you won’t regret it.

Buy: Bed Band, $12.99 (normally $17.99)
