The mattress protector or under sheet has two main functions:
- Avoid the development of odours, bacteria and microbes
- Extend the life of your mattress
There are different protections available in the market. You must therefore choose your protection carefully according to your needs and expectations:
- Absorb excessive perspiration,
- Guarantee better hygiene,
- Avoid staining your mattress,
- Extend the life of your bedding,
- Reduce the risk of allergies for sensitive people.
Here is a list of best practices for choosing the mattress protector you need.
What size mattress protector?
The first step is to measure your mattress correctly. While many beds are said to be single, double, king size or queen size, there are variations within these designations.
Below you will find all the measures that we offer in our range:
- Mattress Protector 80x200 cm
- Mattress Protector 90x190 cm
- Mattress Protector 120x190 cm

- Mattress Protector 160x200 cm
- Mattress Protector 180x200 cm

- Mattress protector articulated bed 2x80x200 cm
Baby or children's beds can also benefit from mattress protectors specially adapted to their small size.
There are mattress pads for cots, cradles or cots in the following sizes:
You should also make sure to measure the thickness of your mattress. Indeed, while most of our protectors fit mattresses up to 28cm, some protectors adapt to a thinner mattress. For babies or children's mattresses, for example, the cups measure approximately 15 cm. The cap should always be slightly longer than the thickness of the mattress in order to cover it adequately. For example, for a 28cm mattress, take a extra deep mattress protector 30cm cap.
What shape should you choose for your mattress pad?
We find the necessary cover form for mattress renovations. They fully cover the mattress and provide complete and lasting protection. It is widely used in the case of old and very damaged mattresses.
The fitted sheet shape borders all sides of the mattress. Easy to use, the mattress protector in the form of a bedsheet offers optimal and adequate protection by covering the entire sleeper surface of the mattress, including the sides. Maintenance is guaranteed.
The tray-shape of a mattress protector only protects the upper side of the mattress. Elasticated on the sides, this shape does not cover the side of your mattress. The tray-shaped mattress pad is held in place by elastic bands attached to the four corners of the mattress, which facilitates its installation. Mattress protectors are also available in a wide variety of materials designed for different needs:
What materials for mattress protectors?
Soft and absorbent, cotton pads are among the most comfortable. Cotton mattress protectors are made of natural fibres that help absorb moisture and sweat.
Terrycloth: the 100% cotton terry mattress pad ensures high moisture absorption. The cotton terry protectors allow good air circulation and a feeling of freshness. They are ideal for summer.
Fleece: the fleece mattress protector is the ideal protection to provide a pleasant, soft and comfortable touch. This warm material is ideal for winter.
Those looking for natural, eco-responsible and naturally anti-mite materials can turn to Tencel material (from eucalyptus fibre). Indeed, this innovative and eco-friendly material is recyclable and very resistant. Thermoregulating and breathable, the Tencel mattress protector guarantees you maximum freshness during the night.
The Cool plus
Cool plus mesh mattress protectors offer the advantage of being extremely breathable. At night, this fiber wicks away sweat and allows excellent body-temperature management to offer you nights that are as cool as possible.
Choose microfiber for its quick drying and stretch ability. The microfiber is soft and supple. Its absorption capacity is 5 times higher than that of traditional cotton. The microfiber mattress pad ensures you a cool and dry night.
Mattress protectors also benefit from significant characteristics in the choice of your purchase. These characteristics can be combined. We can thus find waterproof, anti-mite and absorbent mattress protectors!
The main thing is to meet your greatest need:
Need for softness and comfort: ABSORBENT
Are you looking for soft and comfortable bedding protection with absorbency, preferably in natural or organic materials?
The absorbent mattress protectors are made for you!
Ideal for benefiting from the softness and comfort of cotton, the absorbent pads offer optimal absorption and hygiene for your nights!
Need for security and protection: WATERPROOF
Waterproof mattress protectors protect against liquids, leaks, incontinence and stains. These keep your mattress dry and extend its life. Most waterproof mattress protectors benefit from a membrane - on the mattress side - which provides complete protection against fluids. We advise you to favour waterproof mattress protectors made with a polyurethane membrane which is a more flexible, lighter and quieter material, unlike PVC.
Need to remove dust and mites: ANTI-MITES
Hypoallergenic, anti-mite mattress protectors naturally protect you from dust mites and bacteria. You are creating a natural barrier between dust and mould. The anti-mite mattress pad stays dry and thus prevents the appearance of humidity likely to lodge in your bedding.
Need to reduce perspiration and sweat: BREATHABLE
Breathable mattress protectors are the most sought-after for people who sweat at night. The breathable mattress pads thus quickly evacuate perspiration and night sweats, promoting the evacuation of humidity and heat.
