Finding Oversized Bedspreads

oversize bedspread

Oversized mattresses call for oversized bedspreads for adequate coverage. Although many retailers and manufacturers advertise bedding as oversized, the actual dimensions of the bed covering may fall short of a covering that is truly larger than standard size bedding. Always check the dimensions before purchasing a bedspread that is labeled "oversized."

Where to Buy Your Oversized Bedding

Knowing where to buy is often the biggest challenge for shoppers. The following retailers have bedspreads and other bedding in sizes larger than standard dimensions.

Complete Bed Coverage

An oversized bedspread provides complete coverage on all sides of the bed, all the way to the floor, but is mainly used as a decorative cover. Typically, a warm blanket placed between the sheet and the bedspread is used for functional warmth when sleeping, with the bedspread pulled all the way down to the foot of the bed. Comforters and quilts are used for warmth when sleeping but only provide partial coverage and are typically used with a bed skirt to provide complete coverage.
