DormSmart Living Blog: Twin XL Bedding...

Twin XL Bedding...



Is there an easier way to explain Twin XL Bedding before I begin shopping?

Great question! I'll try to simplify it for you:
  • Standard Twin Comforters are under 90 inches long... so be careful to check the actual bedding dimensions when shopping for Twin XL Bedding EVEN IF the retailer advertises it as twin XL.
  • Extra Long Twin Comforters are 90 inches or longer, manufactured specifically to fit an 80" long twin XL bed.

Obviously, true twin XL comforters (90" or longer) will be the best fit for your extra long dorm bed BUT a twin bedding set can work on your twin XL bed IF you replace the twin fitted sheet WITH a twin XL fitted sheet (39" wide x 80" long). In other words, you must have a twin XL fitted sheet - NO EXCEPTIONS!

It is also important to note that your mattress cover, mattress topper, and bed skirt must also be true twin XL to fit properly.

Hope this helps! Live Dorm Smart!
