Top tip: We recommend buying a quilt a size larger than the mattress you own. This will give you a picturesque drape and stop quilt-stealers from striking at midnight, leaving you in the cold. 

So, for instance, if you have a Queen mattress you would invest in a King quilt size. Further to that, if you’ve been wondering what Double bed doona size you should buy – well the answer would be Queen.

We generously size our flat sheets to accommodate all mattress sizes. 

Sizes include: Single, King Single, Double, Queen, King and Super King.

*Please note the flat sheet sizes below are in cm.

Top tip: Flat sheets are much larger than their fitted counterparts and so can accommodate any depth mattress. All you need to do is tuck the sheet under the bed to get the fit you desire. 

Adding a contrasting flat sheet is a great way to add a pop of colour. Using a flat sheet also saves having to wash your quilt cover as often.
