Ok, so rather random but we have a new sofa bed which is not quite a double size and not quite queen size.

Our house only has single and queen size beds and I’d rather buy a queen size protector to fit on the sofa bed and tuck in in a bit more etc. so we can still use it on our other beds etc.

What do others do? Would it be too lumpy trying to fold it under etc? The sofa bed has slats and the sofa cushions rather than a separate mattress so not sure how tight we can make the fitted bit.

Our sofa bed is double bed size, and even a double mattress protector is too big as it allows for a much deeper mattress than the depth of the one on it.  I just try to tuck it in as much as possible.'

I never even bothered with a mattress protector on mine.  Guests would only be sleeping on it for a few days at a time max.

I'd use the queen & tuck it under.

I just made up our sofa bed this afternoon! We have a double sofa bed but I use queen size bedding. All of the bedding I keep in a vacuum bag (those ones that you use your vacuum to suck all the air out) so that way I just need to pull out the bag and it contains two pillows, doona and all related manchester. We also have a mattress topper we put on top for extra comfort.

Can you get a mattress protector with straps instead of walls? Less bulk to deal with.

Ended up just getting the regular queen size protector. They have pretty thin walls. I'll get good at tucking :D
