Securing sheets

These, I am told by one of the agency carers, are brilliant for keeping sheets on the bed as we are having a problem even with king-size fitted sheets in keeping the sheets in situ over the mattress and topper and they are cheap:

I have used these successfully for years.
Before we got them the sheets were usually wrapped around OH's body during all that seizure activity.
If they stay put on the bed here, they'll work for practically everyone! Image Image

Why not buy fitted sheets

Why not buy fitted sheets with elastic already in the corners? Arent these standard now? Am I missing something here (well I usually am!)

I do but they still slip off the corners especially with the mattress topper even though I have bought larger fitted sheets. I have rather belatedly ordered two sets, thought I had better get in quickly whilst there was still some stock left, I should have asked Betterware for commission Image

amy manages to ping them

Hi Rob, they just don't work!
Well, they do to an extent - but if there's a lot of movement the fitted corners work loose and the sheets end up tangled in legs & bodies! Image

The wee elastics help keep them put! lol
