How to choose sofa pillow cover size?

  1. Introduction

Sofa pillow covers comes in a variety of sizes to fit different types of pillows. It’s important to choose the right size for pillow covers so that the pillows can look great. When pillow covers are too small compared to pillows you have, it’s very hard to put the pillows inside. When pillow covers are too big instead, they will droop at the edges, making the pillows look sloppy and unkempt.

In this article, we will discuss the regular pillowcases sizes and HOSTECCO will show you how to choose the right size for your needs. 


  1. Pillow Cover Sizes

Cushion cover sizes are typically measured in inches or centimeters. And for sofa cushion covers and bed pillowcases, the sizes will be quite different. In this article, we will just talk about sofa cushion cover sizes. In everyday use, inches and centimeters are often used interchangeably as below 3 sizes. However, there is a slight difference between the two. For example, 18 inches is equal to 45.7 centimeters.

  • 16x16 inches/40x40 cm
  • 18x18 inches/45x45 cm
  • 20x20 inches/50x50 cm


  1. How to Choose the Right Cushion Cover Size

To choose the right cushion cover size, first you need to measure your cushion. The cushion cover should be at least 2 inches longer than your cushion on all sides if the pillows are not elastic. But if the pillows are elastic, the cushion covers can have the same size or even 2 inches shorter than your cushion. This will ensure that the cover fits snugly and doesn't come untucked.

If you have a cushion with a pillow protector, you'll need to measure the pillow protector instead of the cushion itself.

Here are some additional tips from HOSTECCO for choosing the right cushion cover size:

  • If you want a cushion cover that hangs over the edges of your cushion, you'll need a larger cover.
  • If you want a cushion cover that is fitted and doesn't hang over the edges of your cushion, you'll need a smaller cover.

Below is an example by using hostecco pillow covers to fit different pillows, you can know the situation clearly.

The pillow on the left has a pillow protector and is of average elasticity. The pillow on the right doesn’t have a pillow protector and is of very good elasticity. However, after putting on a 18x18 inches/45x45 cm pillowcase for both, the difference in appearance is not immediately noticeable.
