The Emma Mattress is a deep mattress and regular fitted sheets are usually not big enough to fit it. It can be tricky to know which sheets will fit your Emma Mattress. This post has a number of sheet options that will fit your Emma Mattress. For more information on what we thought of the Emma Mattress as a whole, see Emma mattress review – 2 years on
Do you put a sheet on an emma mattress?
You do put a sheet on your Emma Mattress. This will help you keep the mattress in the best condition as you can easily remove the sheet and put it in the wash regularly. As the Emma Mattress isn’t cheap you want to protect it for as long as possible.
What is the depth of an Emma Mattress?
All of the Emma Original mattresses and the Emma Premium mattresses are 25cm deep.

What depth fitted sheet for Emma mattress?
You will need at least a 25cm deep fitted sheet for any Emma mattress minimum. I would recommend going for a 30cm deep sheet though to ensure fit though. 40cm would be ok but may fit a bit too loosely and move around whilst you sleep.
Sheets don’t fit Emma mattress
We found it quite frustrating that none of our existing sheets fit the Emma mattress. We also have the same problem with our Leesa mattress. It seems to be the case that the new mattress in a box type mattresses don’t fit standard sheets you can buy in any shop. Don’t fear though, below I have searched for a good selection of sheets that will fit your Emma mattress.
