Do Zipper Sheets for Beds Work?
As a seasoned product reviewer, I am quite picky about the products I bring into my home, knowing that I don’t want to share items I don’t believe in with my readers.
This product, unfortunately, did not work out well for me, and I have to be creative to get it to work. Let me explain.
I was excited to get a set of these zipper sheets for my kids who always kick off their top sheets in the middle of the night. The concept of these sheets is great; top sheet zips down, child climbs in, zips sheet back up. My daughter had no trouble getting in or out of these sheets, and it had my sons begging for sets of their own.
The issue came in the morning when we discovered that the bottom fitted sheet did not stay on. Two corners came loose. Thinking it was user error, we tried again, but no matter what we do, the fitted sheet does not stay on. (She has a standard twin sized mattress). I think if the elastic used in the fitted sheet was a bit tighter, the sheet would stay on, OR they might work on a longer bed size like a dorm bed .
Also, the colors are lacking. I wish there were other options other than grey and white. For kids sheets, they’d be better looking in primary colors, pink and purple (my daughter’s suggestion), or even printed with fun things like dinosaurs or something.
I plan on continuing to use them, however, I’m going to need a clever way to keep them on the mattress. I’m thinking about either trying to use a set of mitten fasteners I have (you know, to keep mittens on) or getting a set of bed sheet fasteners to keep the sheets on, like these below.
If you’d like to give them a try on your bed, you can find them on Amazon. I saw that other reviewers (ones that actually bought the product themselves) had no issues with them, but other product reviewers had the same issues as me and made note of such in their reviews.
Note: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. All words and opinions are mine. All products I receive to review are thoroughly tested before reviews are written, as you can see on my personal website. I would not recommend anything that didn’t work for me and my family.
