Mattress King, Queen, Full, & Twin Size

When shopping for a new mattress set there is sometimes the question of “Which mattress size should I buy?” There are a few different options that will accommodate most sleeping arrangements. A queen and a king size generally will work for most adults while full and twin size are more common for children or even guest room situations. Occasionally in the case that someone is very tall a California king size might be the way to go. You can also get 2 twin extra long mattresses to equal a king size while getting individualized comfort. Below I will list a the exact dimensions of each size. Remember: The measurements are based off of the exact dimensions of a bed frame. Each mattress will vary slightly from these measurements in order to fit properly in the bed frame.

King Size Mattress & Box Spring 76″w X 80″l

Queen Size Mattress & Box Spring 60″w X 80″l

Full Size Mattress & Box Spring 54″w X 75″l

Twin Size Mattress & Box Spring 39″w X 75″l

California King Mattress & Box Spring 72″w X 84″l

Twin XL Mattress & Box Spring 39″w X 80″l

Most mattress manufactures use these common dimensions when building their products. A few manufacturers will make custom size mattresses to the customers specific needs. These are usually a little more costly because of the extra time involved in building a custom size mattress set. There are also mattress makers that use commercial grade edge reinforced sides to create what is called a Super King, Queen, Full, & Twin. This will allow for the mattress to maintain the standard measurement while extended the actual sleeping surface to include several inches of more usable space. The good part about this arrangement is that there is no need for a custom bed frame, sheets, bedding, or any thing.

Below is a list a manufactures that have commercial grade edge reinforced options:

  • Jamison Custom Bedding Co.
  • Englander Resort & Hotel Collection
  • Stearns & Foster
  • Sealy Crown Jewel Collection
  • Duxiana
  • Hastens
  • Hypnos
  • Shifman Mattress
  • Easman Bedding
  • Legendaire Mattress
