Suspenders???

I have always complained about queen fitted sheets not fitting our RV queen bed. We have queen sheet sets out the wazoo so we weren't going to invest in RV sheets because of the cost and the cheap thread count. I saw this suggestion about using suspenders across the bottom of the mattress to keep them pulled tight. I bought 2 sets from Walmart for $13 to give it a try. Viola, works like a champ. No more waking up with sheets all wrinkled and wadded up, and we can use our 600 thread count sheets. Life is good.

I tried a pair of suspenders once...ended in a horrible wedgie incident. Oh...never mind, I see we are talking two different things here. Congrats on the fix, good idea. Bob

The standard queen sheets work fine on our bed, mattress must be different. Ours is the optional pillow top so it's thicker.

We switched to knit sheets and love the fit. I sewed elastic crosswise on the corners of the flannel sheets

You wouldn't be stealing, just trying a new idea. That's what we do, right? Share. BTW, I got the idea from the Youtube video that SarahW posted on her reply.

The sheet suspenders I have seen before are usually for the corners of the sheet. I've never used 'em, so I don't know how well they work. Amazon.com: Sheet Suspenders Brand Sheet Minis: Home & Kitchen

Here are the longer ones... http://www.amazon.com/Sheet-Suspende...ef=pd_sim_hg_3

I like the idea of sewing the elastic on the sheet corners...then it wouldn't come unfastened like some reviewers say these do.

We solved the sheet problem by putting a true house queen mattress in...no more walking sheets

My guess is, we'll be stopping by our local Walmart real soon and picking up some of these. Great idea.

Off subject but the suspenders might even work to keep a picnic table cloth on the table.
