Which Mattress Size is Right for You?

Last updated 6 years ago

Before you decide which style of mattress to buy, also think about the different sizes available so you can find one that works perfectly for you. Your new mattress should fit well into your bedroom, giving you enough space to maneuver and fall asleep comfortably.

Twin Also known as a single, this mattress measures 39” x 75” and is most commonly used for children or in rooms that are short on space. There are also extra-long versions available, which give you an additional five inches, and can often be found in college dorm rooms.

Full A full-sized mattress, or a double bed, is a better option for shorter adults or guest bedrooms. Measuring 54” x 75,” a full-sized mattress is often most comfortable for someone who sleeps alone.

Queen The most popular style in the nation, a Queen gives you 60” x 80” of room to sleep. If you sleep alone or are short on space, a queen is a good option. If you sleep with a partner and have more room, though, you might want to consider a bigger style.

King Give yourself the opportunity to spread out and get comfortable with a king-sized mattress. Measuring 76” x 80,” this bed is both wide and long, making it easy for people of all sizes to get comfortable. You should only consider a king if you have the space for it; otherwise, the mattress will overpower the room.

California King If you love to have nothing but space to sprawl out when you sleep, you might prefer a California King. At 72” x 84,” a California King is the biggest mattress you can get. You and a partner can share a bed without compromising sleep space. These mattresses are also ideal for taller people. Just like with the standard king, you want to make sure you have room in your home for this style.
