John Lewis Exquisite Genuisa Cotton Fitted Sheets, White

Product information

Genuisa ™ is the highest quality cotton in our bedding range and is made by selecting the finest cottons, including Suvine, which are blended together.

Suvine has an extended growing time, which results in long cotton fibres making extra fine, silky smooth yarn of exceptional strength and quality. These yarns are twisted together before weaving, creating our lavishly luxurious 1000 thread count satin. The fibre is innately lustrous and similar to the feel of silk.

Since the lustre is natural and inherent in the cotton fibres, these fitted sheets get silkier and softer wash after wash. This fabric has a beautiful, fluid drape.

  • Single to fit bed 90 x 190cm
  • Double to fit bed 135 x 190cm
  • Kingsize to fit bed 150 x 200cm
  • Super kingsize to fit bed 180 x 200cm


Exquisite Genuisa

Our most luxurious bed linen collection, the Exquisite Genuisa range is crafted from an opulent blend of long staple Indian and Suvin cottons for a fine, silky finish in a 1000 thread count satin weave.

Gloriously close to the feel of silk, this lustrous bedding is renowned for its extra fine yarn that fuses quality and strength with one elegant twist.

Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by So disappointed Having spent the last year telling everyone how fabulous my new bedding set was and recommending it I am now very disappointed. The bedding has a feel of top quality hotel bedding. I had been very pleased with the bedding and even purchased a second set in mist. The duvet cover and pillow slips are perfect they wash well and are a dream to sleep in, without ironing and I am very fussy. The fitted double sheet however has frayed and worn terribly so much so I will be buying a new fitted sheet this week. It will certainly not be the same make. Very very disappointed as this was supposed to last I may as well have gone to a market stall. Worst value for money ever. Expensive price very poor quality for the length of time it lasted. 03 January 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Initially great but disappointing after two washes I thought these sheets were great until they had been washed a few times when they started to bobble. The quality does not live up to the sales pitch that I'd been given in store. I also bought the duvet cover and flat sheet plus pillow cases in two sizes. Two buttons came off the duvet cover in the first wash. Also worth bearing in mind that if you have the sheet and duvet together they become very slippery and you'll spend most of the night trying to pull the duvet back on to the bed! 13 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but expensive These sheets are very soft and wash beautifully. After tumble drying we use them on the bed without ironing and virtually crease free. I would give five stars apart from the cost. 04 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best sheets ever!! I have two sets of these sheets and recommend them highly. However will John Lewis please please stock more of the larger sizes, and also pillow cases to match I particularly wanted another set in "Mist" but they seem to be permanently out of stock!! There is just nothing to compare them with once you have tried them. 09 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great decision after a a big dilemma about whether size matters! I bought this superking sheet (a big consideration, due to the cost) but then happened to look at the reviews before putting it on our bed. I was dsimayed by the negative reviews about the size and feared that our Vi-Spring mattress (23cm deep) was too shallow for the sheet to fit perfectly. I spent several days phoning JL and researching the depths of mattresses!! The upshot is that the sheet fits beautifully and the considerable weight of the mattress prevents any wrinkling. I was told that the standard depth for all JL fitted sheets is 30cm but my research showed that very few mattresses are that deep. A great result and a smooth and luxurious feel! 16 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Luxurious Comfort The Genuisa fitted sheet is luxurious and comfortable due to its high thread count of 1000 and its silky texture. This sheet although admittedly expensive, will last a long time and will last wash after wash. Definitely more of an investment. The only downfall of this sheet is that it does tend to crease easily and if it does not fit your mattress properly it will feel more lke a flat sheet beneath you. The sheet fits a mattress depth of up to 30cm but I do not recommend buying if your mattress is any less than 23cm. 29 January 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by An expensive mistake This is a really lovely product - feels great against the skin and lives up to its claim to feel like silk. One big problem though ... nowhere in the product description does it state that the fitted sheet is designed for a 30cm deep mattress. Our mattress is 20cm deep so the sheet did not fit tightly like a fitted sheet normally would and behaved like a flat sheet, so we ended up with an uncomfortable scrunched-up bottom sheet. An expensive mistake consigned to the cupboard - I would not have purchased this product had I known it would not properly fit our mattress. 14 January 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fitted sheet doesn't fit I bought a douvet cover, pillow cases and fitted bottom sheet in the Genuisa range while in the UK in October. The fabric is really luxurious to sleep on/under BUT the fitted bottom sheet (super king size) does not fit my mattress which is approximately 28cms deep. I live in the US and this depth of mattress is the norm. I have to fight to try and get the sheet to stretch over the corners and then there is an expanse of mattress showing below the elasticated bottom of it. I can't purchase a larger size as I believe I have the largest (unless it was incorrectly labelled.) It is very disappointing as I can't find a fitted bottom sheet in either the same 1000 thread count or in the eau de nil colour in department stores in the US. 12 January 2013
