    Regular fitted sheets are a royal pain even with the suspenders. I finally paid the price and got the sheets with the elastic band and the bottom sheet zips onto it. So far I love it and it makes the bed easy to make and sure saves on backaches fighting the mattress trying to keep the fitted sheet in place. It looks well made. The only downside is it is expensive. I use only the bottom adjustable frame, no head, end, or sideboards.The band that comes with them also holds the under-pad sheet in place. I would advise anyone it is worth investing in these sheets for adjustable beds.

    The ones I got were made by Quick Zip.

    Oh yeah; now I remember your zip-sheets posts. I guess I'll just wrestle with regular fitted sheets and maybe the "suspenders." I'm buying a cheap adjustable bed for a spare room that will have minimal use after my surgery next summer. Thanks, Faye.

    Oh, and I noticed these on Amazon... https://smile.amazon.com/Rubber-Hugger-Suspenders-Fasteners-Mattress/dp/B07NKR844L/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sheet+band&qid=1617576883&sr=8-3&th=1

    I tried those bands and they didn't work very well and just made everything harder. The under-suspenders work, but a real pain to keep on. You have a husband to struggle and wrestle the mattress to get the suspenders on the bottom sheet, so they might work out for you. :)

    @Gloria Mitchell -- how do you like the Ghost bed? I see that Costco has the Ghost queen size on the adjustable base for $1300, which is an excellent price. I spent the entire weekend obsessing about adjustable beds. :rolleyes: (I waited too long to order the base from Amazon and now it's sold out, plus increased in price.)

    I have narrowed it down to the Sealy Cocoon (which is made by Sealy-Tempurpedic) or the Ghost bed. They are similar in pricing and both are made in the USA.

    It's weird, but Costco is much cheaper than the Ghost website. Is yours the adjustable bed or the regular mattress? (The Costco one is the basic mattress on an electric adjustable frame.) Thanks!

    I finally decided to go with the Sealy/Tempurpedic "Cocoon" hybrid mattress and adjustable bed frame. They were having a good sale with some freebies thrown in (sheets, pillows). So that's done. :D
