Since a king size bed is almost square, how do you decide which way the sheets goes. I get tirred putting it on and moving it and trying to figure which way seems to fit best.
The most precious jewels you'll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children♥
Also, the wider hem goes at the top.
If you are at least five feet tall, you can reach the opposite corners of the narrow end (head and foot) of the bed up to a queen size. Slip your hand into one corner pocket of the fitted sheet, and then run your hand along the pocket, toward the next corner. If you can reach the next corner with your outstretched arms, then the side of the sheet between your hands is the narrow part of the sheet that goes on the head/foot end of the bed. If you cannot reach the next corner with your outstretched arms, then you have found the side of the sheet that fits the longest side of the bed.

Thanks so much for your help. I was keeping the tag on the bottom right, cause thats where it was on stripes, (so i figured it goes there always) but the plain sheet was just not fitting well, so i moved it and i thought it fit better. Thanks anyway, this is wonderful information
By the way, a king-sized bed is one of our most appreciated expenditures.
I've had the same issue with down comforters, duvets, etc., sooooo, when I have them on to my satisfaction, I discreetly place a tiny safety pin on the UNDERNEATH, BOTTOM LEFT CORNER and just remember that is where ALL safety pins go. So simple, even for DH (if and when he feels inclined to change the linens himself.) Same "safety pin" rule applied in the motorhome. Make certain you use a good quality silver pin as the cheepo goldish colored ones might rust during laundering.
