Every fitted sheet I have slides all over the bed because after a couple of washes the elastic is useless, just paid £27 pounds for a king size one from Debenhams and 27 euros for one from Yorkshire Linen and both useless.

same here, although I think its the heat in spain that degrades the elastic, the black band round my panama hat goes slack in the heat and looses its elasticity and never recovers back to its original size,

If your fitted sheets are not staying in place on your mattress, have you measured the mattress to ensure that the size you are buying is correct.
Do you have a mattress protector beneath the sheet and if so, does it remain insitu on the mattress or is it unsecure too?
Could you put a blanket or bedspread onto the mattress first and make sure it is well tucked in. Now put your mattress protector over that and finally put the fitted sheet on. By now, you should find it difficult enough to get the sheet onto the mattress ,on the last corner,raise the mattress and holding it firmly,get the last corner in place. Your sheet will not budge if you carry out this procedure.
If your bed was made in the UK, a double bed will be 6’3” in length whilst a Spanish bed will be longer at 6’6”. If the sheet is a spanish one,then it will be longer but you did say that the two sheets you referred to were purchased in English shops.
Please let me know if this works for you. Good luck.

Thanks Beardyboy, I have 2 English beds, one a normal double size and the other a Kingsize waterbed. I do have a mattress protector on the double and have tried a blanket, not possible on the water bed. Without even putting a sheet on the bed you can see that there is no elastic left, no give whatsoever. Think I might find a seamstress to put a small hem in them and thread some stronger eleastic in.
