Preventing a Top Bed Sheet or Blanket from Riding Up

How can you attach a sheet or blanket to the foot of a bed so that it does not ride up? Yes, I have tucked it underneath the mattress and also have used those corner snap things, but it's not working out that great. I need some handy proven to work tips.

Tie a knot at the end of the flat sheet and tuck it into the fitted sheet

If the sheets just ride up for no reason, this may work for you, but if you are a super restless sleeper and tend to move your legs a lot and that is why the sheets runch up, DON'T try this method. It worked on the side one who sleeps like a log, but the restless side, it tore....

I used the super heavy duty 4 inch metal skirt safety pins after tucking (pinned 1 top and 1 bottom on the front of the bed, top and bottom on the side of the bed) and it held it fine on the log sleepers's side. On my side (I am a restless sleeper) it caused the sheets and the mattress cover to tear as I literally kicked the closed pins out on one side. I was not happy.


I finally gave up and just deal with the riding up on my side, sometimes getting up in the middle of the night to fix if there is a better solution out there, I am so up for it!

This suggestion may not help with your present sheets and blankets but you can think about this the next time you purchase bed linens.

  • My son had this problem and the only solution I found was to buy California style top sheets as these are longer than the normal sheets.
  • I then fitted the end under the mattress but made a fold in the top sheet (near the foot of the bed) so that his feet would be in the fold when he went to bed. this worked for him but sheets are expensive.
  • I work with seniors and some of them are restless and have this problem so one of the other helpers added a length (from other sheets) to their present sheets and did the same thing. It worked to some extent but restless sleepers can be pretty strong when moving around.

  • I believe some of the nursing home also use something similar but I think they can order their sheets at different lengths.
  • Sorry, that is the only suggestion I can offer.

I've heard of people sewing the top sheet to the fitted sheet somehow. Don't know the durability for restless sleepers. Some people do this to ease making the bed.
