No. A full size fitted sheet is made to fit a 54 x 75 inch mattress; whereas, a twin XL mattress is 39 by 80 inches.

How long is a twin XL mattress?


A twin XL mattress, commonly referred to as a twin extra long mattress or extra long twin mattress, is 80 inches in length. 

How long is a twin XL comforter?


For the best fit, make sure the comforter you purchase for your twin XL bed is 90 inches or longer. Knowing the comforter dimensions (measurements), typically listed on the packaging, is the most important factor when shopping for bedding that will fit a twin XL bed.
