"I remember sending my first daughter off to her college dorm with twin sheets for her twin XL bed. She didn't tell me until the following year. I felt awful, so understanding dorm bedding, especially twin XL, became a priority for me! I knew comfort was important to a good night’s sleep and good grades. At DormSmart we realize that twin XL bedding is a new concept for many incoming college freshman and their parents. To ensure that students and parents are better prepared than we were to shop for dorm bedding, we wrote DormSmart.com Course: Dorm Bedding Sizes 101 and we are always available by phone to answer any questions,” stated Christi Leslie, Founder and CEO of DormSmart.com.
In addition to answering common questions about twin XL bedding, the course also offers helpful tips such as:
"...Do not stress about shopping for twin XL comforters, you may not find many and when you do the selection may be limited / disappointing. Consider purchasing a twin size comforter that fits your dorm décor! You can adjust the length and fill in with lots of pillows; a dorm must have to turn your bed into daytime seating. Simply, pull the length of your comforter toward the foot of the bed to add an inch or two, make a small fold at top (turn down) then fill in with your pillows. If you plan to raise your bed with bed risers (bed raisers), consider purchasing a full, queen, or a full/queen size comforter or duvet to accommodate the height versus purchasing a bed skirt (just make sure the pattern works, a solid color or a pattern that repeats versus a border pattern)..."
