Keep these in mind:

Fitted Sheet

A sheet with elastic edges tailored to fit a particular mattress without slipping off. This is the bottommost sheet.

RL Tip: When you purchase your fitted sheets, make sure that you have the correct length, width and thickness of your mattress.

Flat Sheet

A rectangular sheet of cloth placed over the fitted sheet; also called the top sheet.  The flat sheet is usually added before the comforter.

RL Tip: You may go for the linen variety when choosing flat sheets.


A fiber-filled quilted bed covering that goes over the top of a mattress but does not cover pillows or hang all the way to the floor.

Duvet or Comforter Cover

A large, protective, and decorative casing for a comforter, usually with ties, snaps, or buttons to close it. It protects your comforter from dirt and dust, and saves you trips to the laundromat.
