So my current mattress is now shaped like a trapezoid for various unimportant reasons, and I'm looking at getting a Long Double as a replacement (because I need the extra length, but I'm in a small room and minimizing width is important).
Long Double sizing: 135cm x 203cm

Now, does anyone know where one can get quality cotton sheets (preferably of the fitted variety) to suit a long double mattress? I've done a bit of googling but turned nothing up.

Friend had a weird sized bed that came from an asian importer and ended up having to get sheets off amazon because it was supposed to go to the US where they have different sizes. Try looking for your bed size in inches and see what you get come up.

It is worth checking if the long double complies with IEEE 754.

Buy Queen sheets. Tuck them in.

Wade: Gain even more space, go king single, plenty of available sheets


Yes but then I'd have no room to fit lady-friends. Not a compromise I'm willing to make.

As per your advice RichMS, I checked on Amazon and they do have a bed in a 54"x80" size, though 100% cotton sheets to suit are nowhere to be found.
Maybe I'll have to buy Queen flat sheets and just deal wit' the tuck-in.

Lol, +30cm isn't going to make for much less of a compromise :P

If your heart is set on a long double then just go Queen duvet and sheets, its barely 4" longer on either side, will not be a problem in real world terms
