We went to register this weekend at Macy’s and were very successful…aside from bedding. We have a full-sized bed (we live in Manhattan and queen is not an option in our apartment right now) and all the bedding we liked started at queen-sized! However, I noticed that some said full/queen…?
Is it okay to get queen bedding for a full-sized bed?

It might be a little to big for your mattress. It also depends of the thickness of the mattress also. I would get a queen just in case you change bed.

The queen bedding is just a smidgen larger than a full bed. It will work queen for full but not the other way around, I think you would be fine registering for the queen stuff

I had a queen comforter on my full sized bed for like 3 years and it was fine 🙂 It’s a little bit longer, but not noticeable at all!

I did it all the time. I had a full sized bed, which I knew we’d replace with DH’s queen once he got home. But my parents bought me some really amazing 600 thread count sheets for the Christmas before last….in queen sized. I used those little sheet pincher things to hold them together under the mattress. The fitted sheet will be a little bit big. But, then I got a mattress topper and it fit perfectly, like it was an ‘extra deep’ pocketed sheet (but really it wasn’t).
I was at a Linens N Things and they use these heavy duty straight pins to hold the really large bedding in place on those little in-store bed replicas and they told me taht was a good idea, too, especially for bedskirts.

Thanks all! We have a mattress pad on top of the bed so that will make the sheets fit a little more snugly. As for the skirt, our bed is on risers so that will buy us a little room too!
We’re moving in 1.5 years and hoping to fit a queen bed in our new place, so it would be nice to have sheets already. I think we’ll register for the queen set we want :o)

@finnaroo – we do the same! we purposely buy king sized comforters for our queen bed to solve the whole fighting over the blanket issue 🙂
