First of all, what is bed sheet? It is the rectangular mat on the mattress where we sleep on every night. The sheets are very simple, just a rectangular fabric, with the edge pressed. Ordinary sheets are simply folded on the four sides, good sheets would add lace or make rounded corners or something like that. In short, the bed sheet is a rectangular fabric that is mainly put on the surface of the mattress.

Secondly, the main feature of mattress cover or we can call it "fitted sheet", can firmly cover the mattress.It usually has an elastic ribbon or it's shaped for the mattress with a zipper to close on. So it's important to choose the right size of the mattress protector for your mattress.

The main effect of mattress cover is the same as bed sheets, but the main benefit is that it covers the mattress right in the shape and size, so it's not as easy to slide as the bed sheet while we're sleeping. If one's slumbering isn't that genuine, bed sheets may curl up, which will be very uncomfortable for sleeping. Using mattress cover, we don't have such problem and have a good sleep at night.

Nowadays there are new featured mattress covers launched in the market. Waterproof mattress cover, bed bug mattress protector, hypoallergenic mattress cover and more are becoming the first choice for customers.
