Searching for Larger or Unusual Sized Pillow Cases

We are always getting contacted by customers who have bought some new Pillows in a larger than normal or  a continental size and then find that they can’t find pillowcases to match.

Pillow Cases in the UK and US

The UK standard Pillow Case is 50 x 75cm or 19″x 29″.Widely used in the UK and the US this is fine on a Standard single or Double Bed but is really too small on a UK King, Euro King or US Queen bed or larger.
The ideal pillow case for the larger bed is a King or Waterbed Pillow Case as it is sometimes known. This is 50 x 91cm or 19″ x 36″.

A new shape pillow which has been designed for support to the head whilst sleeping – The Contour – is yet another size at 41 x 20cm  or 16″ x 23″.

Pillow Cases in Europe

There are four main sized Pillow Cases widely used in Continental Europe. They are  65 x 65cm, 65 x 100cm, 40 x 80cm and 80 x 80cm. The most popular really does vary from Country to country with 80 x 80cm the norm in Germany and 65 x 65cm in France

Around the world many of the Pillow Cases Sizes mentioned are in common use. Not surprizingly it rather mirrors the old empires as to which pillows and so pillowcases are in common use in each country.
