Your Biggest College Dilemma: Finding Sheets that Fit


Moving out for your first time and moving in to college can be an amazingly exciting and nerve-wracking experience. You’re so excited to move out on your own and meet new people but on the same token, you’re scared and a bit apprehensive about what will soon ensue. Firstly, don’t be scared! You’re going to have an amazing time at college and you’ll meet new people that will really help shape you as a person. Embrace the opportunity with open arms. You’re going to learn so much about yourself while you’re gone, and really gain that independence you’ve heard oh-so-much about.

With all of these things running through your brain; moving out, being independent, managing finances, packing for school, etc, the last thing you want to worry about is getting to your dorm and realizing your bedding doesn’t fit appropriately. Finding the correct sized sheets for your unique college bed can be a task all on its own if you don’t have the proper resources. To fit your bed, you’ll need XL twin sheets to cover your mattress from head-to-toe. But, that’s not all. You’ll also need an XL mattress pad, cover and comforter to match! If you’re worried about it, there’s also bed bug protectors that you can purchase to make sure the creepy crawlies stay out of your sleep-sanctuary. Confused about what these items look like or where to get them? Don’t worry, we’re here to make your move-in that much easier.


1) You’ll need some super cute/cool XL sheets to show a peep of personality underneath that statement comforter!

2) Eco Smart Quilted Twin XL Mattress Pad to cover that bare mattress!
