One Size Does Not Fit All - College Freshmen Often Surprised to Find Their Bedding Is Not a Perfect Fit

With back-to-school sales slim in the winter, finding new bedding can be tough, but online retailer meets this need all year long.

    BLAINE, MN, January 08, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- College students who head to school for the first time this winter semester with standard twin-sized sheets in tow will be in for a surprise when they make their dorm room beds for the first time. Most college dorms have twin XL size mattresses, which are longer than traditional twin mattresses, and standard twin size mattresses will not fit. In the winter semester, finding sheets designed for these beds in regular retail stores is challenging, but, an online retailer catering to college students, has these sheets available year-round.

Twin XL mattresses are five inches longer than standard twin mattresses. This is a benefit for the adult-sized college student trying to get a comfortable night's sleep on one, but it provides a challenge if the only available bedding is bedding for a standard twin. Those extra five inches make a big difference in the way the sheets fit.

Unfortunately, many college freshmen are unaware of this difference, and this leaves some struggling to fit standard twin sheets and bedding onto the twin XL size mattresses, adding to the woes common to underclassmen. When students try to make a standard twin sized sheet set work, the fitted sheets end up stretched and pulled, which weakens the elastic and causes the fitted sheet to slip off during the night.'s extensive line of extra-long sheet sets can help eliminate this problem.'s products are designed specifically for college dorm settings. This means that the colors and patterns appeal to the college age student. From simple solid colors to trendy prints, students will find exactly what they need for their dorms, and all in the size that truly fits. The company also offers a variety of materials, including microfiber and high-quality Egyptian cotton, to give students sheets that will last their full time at college.

In addition to sheets, offers comforters, mattress pads and bed skirts, all in the Twin XL size. It is the only place a college student needs to shop to find the bedding and dorm supplies needed to head back to school in comfort and style. The team recommends purchasing at least two sets, because college life is busy, and sometimes students do not have time to run a load of laundry when their sheets need to be washed.
