Queen beds are the most common beds in the USA, but what do you do if you don't quite have enough bed space and start having 'real estate' issues with your partner? What if you need little bit extra room between you and your partner, but don't want to fully commit to a king size bed? A lot of people now-a-days are turning to the wider variation of the queen bed called the "Olympic queen" bed. These beds are great for a lot of reasons. First, they enable people to have a little bit more room to spread out and be comfortable, even if they don't necessarily need or have room for a larger king-size bed. Often these mattresses can even be used with an existing queen foundation to save money.
By some manufacturers, these beds are also sometimes referred to as "Expanded queen" beds, so it's important to note that when buying bed sheets, "Expanded queen sheets" are the same thing as "Olympic queen sheets". They're just different names. These beds were first developed in 1999 and are designed to offer 10% more width to the users. Typical queen beds measure 60 inches wide and 80 inches long. While this bed is the same length as a queen bed, it is 66 inches wide. That's often all it takes to keep you or your partner from accidentally elbowing each other in the middle of the night. Before, when someone wanted sheets, they'd have to buy a king sheet set and have it cut down by a seamstress and resewn to the correct Olympic queen size. This was very expensive, inconvenient, inefficient, and left people with sub-par sheets.
Today, BestBedding.com offers a wide range of Simmons Olympic queen sheet sets in the highest quality available. We boast a great selection of thread counts, fabrics, and styles. There's also a nice selection of colors and even patterned sheet sets. If your mattress is under 12 inches thick, you'll want to order a regular pocket sheet set, but if your mattress is over 12 inches thick, then we highly recommend picking up a deep pocket sheet set to accommodate for the extra thickness of your mattress. This will help provide a great fit and also ensure that the corners of the fitted sheet stay right where they should, all night long.
Regular queen sheets will not work for a Olympic bed, because they simply will not be wide enough. Real Olympic queen bed sheets are, by far, the best option if you have this bed.
