Feeling very stoopid!

How frustrating is this?
I went out to buy a new bedspread today, because the one we currently have is too small for our bed (it is a double bedspread and our new bed is a queen) so I found this great deal on a queen bed-in-a-bag at Sears today. BUT... I forgot that our new bed is not only a queen size, but it also has an extra thick matress. (...which means standard queen sheets and bed spreads won't fully cover the matress!)

So I guess now I could use this set on the spare bed (which is a double) and go out and buy a NEW duvet that will fit and cover my matress! Do they even sell such a thing? or am I screwed?

Joe and I have the same problem. We bought a extra thick mattress but no queen sheets fit. So I talked to my mom about it and she said just use King sheets. So I bought everything in a king but we sleep on a queen. It works and it covers everything the only thing is that you might have to buy new pillows.

There are some places that sell bedding for thick mattresses, but even those sets aren't deep enough for mine! I have 2 sets from Sleep Country and that is the only place that has ever had sheets deep enough for my mattress.

As for a duvet, you could always just get a king.

I buy extra deep pocket sheets for my mattress and sometimes I still can't get them to stay on. As for the duvet or comforter, get those in a king size but don't get king sheets, I tried that and it sucked. too much fabric and it's always loose and sloppy looking.

Thanks to All for the insight... upon further inspection the queen bed spread will work, I just hope that the bed skirt isn't too long for the short box-spring... GRRRR.... Damn Sleep Country and their extra thick matresses! I'll never buy one like this again. I honestly see no benefit to having a thicker matress. (now that I have one!)

Won't a King duvet hang over the bed ALOT!?! I don't want the bed to be swimming in the duvet.

I have found some GREAT deep pocket sheets (And very high thread count, very luxurious) at WalMart, that fit our bed perfectly! I just need a new color now! *poo!
(I forgot that this bed-in-a-bag idea caters to the masses... and the masses have regular thickness matresses! LOL)

Most new matresses now adays are extra thick or "pillowtops" so you shouldn have a prob finding something that works. As for the skirt, pin it up (under the mattress) so it fits. That's what I do :)
