If I never have to fold another fitted sheet — no matter how adorable and cute they are —  it’ll be too soon. I’ve watched countless YouTube videos, and I still get flustered every time I attempt to coax a gathered circle of fabric into a perfect square. I mean, we all remember teaching our kids that the circular wooden block doesn’t fit into the square slot, right? Why should it be any different when it comes to bed sheets? But then there’s the actual act of getting said sheets on the bed itself, which is arguably more frustrating and without a doubt, the worst. My 5-year-old’s bed is flush against two walls, making it hard to get the right angle to lift the mattress, while my 11-year-old sleeps in a loft bed, which presents its own unique challenges for making the bed. Luckily, I stumbled upon zippered sheets, which solve both the sheet-folding and bed-making problems handily. Here are 9 of my favorites.

How Do Zippered Sheets Work?

Most of these zippered sheets come in two pieces. The base sheet wraps all the way around the mattress, staying snugly in place, while the zippered top sheet zips on top of the fitted sheet. Zippered sheets tend to be more expensive than standard bed sheets, but fans love them because they stay in place all night, even for restless sleepers, and they’re extremely easy to change, making them a great choice for tight spaces, heavy beds, loft and bunk beds, and even in RVs. 

There are also other zippered sheets that are more like a zippable pocket for your mattress. These lack the removable top layer, and instead there’s just one piece that envelops the mattress and then zips to stay in place. These are typically more affordable, but less convenient to remove.

These zippered sheets don’t have the removable zippered component. Instead, the extra-deep (16”) one-piece zippered sheet is meant to completely envelop your mattress. That means these luxuriously soft microfiber sheets will stay put through the night, no matter how much you wiggle around.

Not only do ZipFit’s fitted sheets zip into place, but the top sheets also zip onto the foot of the bed, so they don’t get tangled up during the night and leave your kiddo with cold feet.

The top sheet zips into place, but what I love about them is that the top sheet also has panels that fold out so you get the same coverage of traditional sheets.
