My oldest daughter has been using some of the same sheets for awhile and really wanted a new set. It was great timing when Twin XL contacted me to try out their bedding. Mya of course was super excited as well.
Twin XL is really made to fit the common dorm room size beds. I never really understood why dorm beds are longer. The difference between the two Twin sizes is the length, the Twin XL bed has dimensions of 39 x 80 inches. When buying bedding for a XL Twin bed make sure you get the right dimensions. The length of XL fitted sheets are 80 inches, and the length of XL comforters are 92 inches. Probably something that I will never learn the answer to.
In true Mya fashion, she picked out the zebra pattern. The sheet set came with the fitted sheet, flat sheet and a pillow case. I was worried that it would be a little too much zebra, but really looks good in person.
Since Mya doesn’t have a dorm size bed in her room all we did was tuck the end of the fitted sheet under her mattress and we were good to go. I asked her if it felt like it was bunched up or anything and she said no, it felt normal.
The quality of the material are great and I can tell it will hold up for a long time, which is a great thing for college age kids when they sometimes aren’t the most gentle.
Twin XL has a large variety of patterns to choose from along with comforters and other bedding accessories. If you spend over $79, you get free shipping. I recommend checking them out.
