Your fitted sheet is where you will spend a third of your time. Whether you are in bed to sleep, watch a series or spend hours on the phone, this fitted sheet must bring comfort and softness to your bed. Its other function is purely hygienic, it protects your mattress, and must be strong enough to be put in the washing machine very regularly. To choose well its fitted sheet, it is well to select its dimension, the dimension of its cups (the four seams present at the corners), and its material. In this article we are interested in the 90x140 fitted sheet.
Which size of mattress for a fitted sheet 90x140
The 90x140 fitted sheet will fit a 90x140 mattress. This mattress size is intended for beds for small children. This is not a very common size, so this type of fitted sheet can be more complicated to find. To know if a fitted sheet is the right size, it must be tight on the mattress and not wrinkle.
The 90x140 fitted sheet is one of the least requested fitted sheet sizes for babies in France, benefiting from 880 monthly requests on Google, largely behind the standard 70x140 size with 4400 requests.
This size of fitted sheet is used with a duvet and a duvet cover 100x140.

Depending on the thickness of the mattress, you will have to choose the size of the cups of the 90x140 fitted sheet. The cups are the seams at the four corners, the thicker the mattress, the longer the seam.
To help you find your way around, here is how to select the cup size: If the thickness of the mattress measures between 17 and 22 cm, the cups should measure 25cm. If the thickness of the mattress is between 23 and 27 cm, the cups should measure 30cm. If the thickness of the mattress is between 28 and 35 cm, the cups should measure 38cm. If you choose cups that are too small, the fitted sheet may not fit properly.
The material of the 90x140 fitted sheet
As the 90x140 fitted sheet is intended for small children, its material must be selected with care. Fitted sheets for children are available in a selection of cotton, jersey cotton and organic cotton. Cotton and organic cotton are hardwearing and depending on their quality, can be very soft. Organic cotton is ideal for children's sensitive skin: if it meets a standard, it means that it has been made from cotton that has been grown without pesticides, and the chemicals it has been in contact with are controlled. Cotton jersey is a weaving technique that gives the fabric great elasticity and softness, this material is easy to care for and does not wrinkle when stretched over the 90x140 mattress.
