Mattress Sizing Breakdown and Custom Mattress Sizes

Purchasing a new mattress can feel overwhelming with all of the options on the market. One crucial part of the decision is the size of your new mattress. Let's take a look at standard mattress sizes and custom mattress options.

Standard mattresses come in eleven different sizes. So the first thing you can do is determine if the bed will be for a single sleeper or multiple people.

Single Sleeper Mattress Sizes

Toddler/Crib: 28 x 52 inches

Twin 38 x 75 inches

Twin XL 38 x 80 inches

Multiple Sleeper Mattress Sizes

Full/Double 53 x 75

Queen 60 x 80 inches

King 76 x 80 inches

California King 72 x 84 inches

Olympic Queen 66 x 80 inches

Wyoming King 84 x 84 inches

Texas King 80 x 89 inches

Alaskan King 108 x 108 inches

Once you have determined if a single sleeper or multiple sleepers will use the mattress, there are a couple of other factors that you can think about when choosing the perfect size mattress.

Height and Sleep Position

Consider the height of the people who will sleep on the mattress. If the user is over six feet tall, you will want to consider a bed over 80 inches long. Additionally, think about your sleep position. If you sleep on your side, you might want more width, whereas those who sleep on their back or stomach tend to sleep extended, taking up more length on the bed.

Room Dimensions

Think about the size of the room that your mattress will go in. We recommend having about 24 inches of space around each side of the bed. Bring the measurements of your space when you head out to purchase your new mattress.


Because mattresses tend to have a long lifespan, you might want to think about your long-term needs for the bed. For example, if you are buying a bed for a young child, consider sizing up so that they can grow into the mattress. If you are single, you could purchase your mattress with future partners and pets in mind.


Finally, mattresses can range in cost. The size of your mattress can bring the price up significantly, and you need to remember to consider the cost of the accessories- bedding, pillows, and bed frames that comes along with the size of your mattress. Make sure to purchase your mattress from a reputable mattress factory with experience in the industry so that your new mattress is of good quality.

Custom Mattresses

A custom mattress considers all of your needs - from the size you need to your specific sleep needs. With a custom mattress, you will always find it comfortable no matter how you lay on it because it is built to your particular body needs. If your mattress is suited just to you, it will last longer because you will not have to change your mattress for over a decade - saving you time, money, and headaches!
