bed skirt for low profile box spring

I am in search of a bed skirt for my low profile box spring (full size). I need a 12 inch drop and can't find one anywhere. ----any suggestions? I was using a regular size drop (probablu 15 inch drop)that just dragged on the floor, and I finally just threw it out (looked terrible). Do you think a twin size with a drop of about 18 inches would fit the full size ?I really don't know what to do with this. So many of the thicker mattresses now are purchased with the low profile box spring. What do people do with these?

Hem a longer one. Is iron hemming tape in fabric stores.

If you can't find the correct size, I have a suggestion....and I hope it makes sense when you read this.

I found a great king size dust ruffle years ago, for a double bed that I had. It was on such a great clearance and was absolutely perfect for the bedroom. Instead of hemming it all the way around, I overlapped it vertically in the middle....the part that was hidden under the mattress. I did this twice and had two vertical seams. The only place it was visible was at the bottom of the bed, but it just created a pleated look and was hardly noticeable.

I gave up on bedskirts several years ago, I guess I'm just clumsy because for me they made it more of a hassle to change the sheets!

So I just put a fitted sheet over the box spring, the kind with elastic all around, and it stays in place when I change the linens. Very easy to wash and no ironing!

Try using a flat sheet, set down between the foundation & the mattress, just the same way you'd set a dust ruffle. Before you go to all that work, though, I'd measure how big the flat sheet is in relation to how much area you need to cover. Might have to size up on the sheet & maybe try a queen size. It's not ruffled, but that wouldn't matter if you don't care one way or the other.

I am so sick of bed skirts. Nothing but problems. I wish I could find good old fashioned bedspreads again. Boy do I sound old and crochety or what? I found one at Penneys, but there is no longer much of a choice-it seems to be bedskirts or nothing.

I do the exact same thing now. I have a high poster bed with a nice cherry rail on the side. So, it looks very nice without a dust ruffle. I use a dark brown fitted sheet to cover the box spring. It blends in with the bed frame and it is not even noticeable.
