Fit the sheet to fit your body, but don’t just use a single piece.
You want to make sure you’re going to get a solid fit, too.
Here are some tips on how to fit the sheet and what you should consider before you go out to the tailor.
Use a template When you’re looking for a sheet, look for a template that can be used.
If it’s a template for an actual sheet, make sure to include your name, address and phone number.
If the template isn’t available, use the name of a company that makes custom sheets.
If you can’t find a template, consider hiring a tailor or tailor-to-order to create one for you.
If that doesn’t work, consider calling your local fabric shop.
The tailor will be able to help you select the right sheet for your body type.
Measure and find the right size A good sheet should be about the size of your hand, but not too big, not too small and not too tight.
If your body is narrow, you can use a thin-lined, stretchy fabric such as cotton or linen.
If there is too much fabric on your body and you want it to fit snugly, try using a more rigid fabric like silk or nylon.
If a sheet is too big for you, you should try using one that’s a little larger than your waist, hips or chest.
Make sure you don’t stretch too much A sheet can be stretched too much to accommodate your shape.
If too much material is stretched, it can be difficult to keep the sheet in place or can tear.
Make certain you don`t stretch the sheet too much when it`s being worn.
Avoid getting too many layers If you are going to wear a sheet on your arms, legs or stomach, make a sure you choose a material that can stretch.
Try a thin fabric, such as a polyester or polyamide, or a light, stretch fabric such a nylon, polyester-fiber or nylon-plastic.
If possible, use one of these three fabrics: cotton – a lightweight cotton that doesn`t have any stretch.
polyester – a light-weight fabric with a slight stretch.
nylon – a stiff fabric with good stretch and a light weight.
Avoid using a lot of stretch The more stretch you use, the more the fabric will tear and it will be difficult for your skin to breathe.
A sheet that’s too tight can stretch your skin and make you feel tight.
Wear a sheet that can’t stretch to get the most out of your body.
A good choice of fabric is a soft, stretch-resistant material that won`t scratch or tear.
Keep your fabric clean Keep your sheet clean.
Avoid leaving any fabric stains on the sheet.
If, for some reason, you get a piece of fabric that looks different than what you expected, wash it well to remove any residue.
Be careful about the thickness of the fabric Avoid using an extra-thin sheet.
Extra-thin sheets can have a thin, flimsy surface that can scratch, and it`ll be difficult or impossible to maintain a good fit.
If this happens, wear a thicker, more stretchable sheet.
