Mattress Measurements – What Size is Best for You?

There are several aspects to selecting a mattress that best suits your needs. Unsure what makes an Eastern King different from a California King? Or how you should factor your height into mattress sizing? As you explore our mattress brands, utilize the sizing guide below as a resource.  

Sleep & Dream understands that every client has unique needs. It’s our personal mission to customize your buying experience and mattress selection, pairing you with the right mattress to achieve your best night’s sleep!

  • A Twin Mattress measures 38” x 74”, sometimes 39” x 75”.

  • A Full/Double Mattress measures 54” x 75”.

  • A Queen Mattress measures 60” x 80”.

  • A Standard/Regular/Eastern King measures 76” x 80”.

  • A California King measures 72” x 84”.

Keep in mind that depending on the manufacturer, there can be up to a one-inch variance in the actual measurement of a mattress.

Incorporating Your Height

It is recommended that your mattress be at least eight inches longer than your height for maximum comfort. Over six feet tall? A California King may be a wise choice.

Custom Sized Mattresses

Just because your mattress is traditionally made, it doesn’t mean your mattress must be traditionally shaped. Sleep & Dream carries three brands – Vispring, Royal-Pedic, and Posh+Lavish – that will craft just about any size and/or shape requested.

Custom mattress options include:
  • Extra Large Mattresses

  • Round Mattresses

  • Yacht Mattresses
