Measuring the Girth of a Mattress The Girth measures 67.5 inches

Measuring your mattress to get the girth is important to get the right size cover.

The way to order the right size mattress cover is to first measure the length, then measure the girth.

Finding the girth is accurately done by taking a measuring tape and going completely around the mattress at the width (see first picture above). The girth of the mattress above is 67.5 inches (see second picture above).

An alternative to using a measuring tape (for example if the girth of the mattress is too large for your tape) is to use a string to measure the girth. Then measure the string with a ruler. Unfortunately knitting yarn stretches and will give an inaccurate measurement.

The BabeSafe® mattress cover slips over the entire mattress like a bag so the cover can be adjusted to fit if the cover is a little larger than the mattress.

We can help you if you are not sure which cover to get if you send us the correct length and girth. Ask us at our Contact Us page.
