This article was written and fact checked by the team at No Bull Mattress & More.

You probably know that your mattress size determines your nighttime comfort and affects your quality of life. If you ever struggle to sleep through the night or wake up with a low back pain or neck pain, it could be that you are using the wrong mattress size.   

A wrong mattress size may also hinder your efforts to lose weight and stay healthy. Studies show that a comfortable mattress lessens nervousness and irritability, reduces pains and aches associated with deprived sleep, and improves your quality of life.

If you are like most people, you are not sure the right mattress size for you or what the popular mattress size is, let alone the standard mattress size.. This is compounded by the fact that there are no standard mattress sizes for particular body sizes or  taller individuals like there are for shoes and clothes. Most of us purchase the mattress size we think will fit or what our peers recommend to us as a popular size. 

We are here to end this guesswork for you.  At No Bulls Mattress, we have long years of experience in mattress and sleep matters and know just the right mattress size for you. Here is a guide to help you choose the best mattress size for a restful night and better quality of life:

Guide for the Best Mattress Sizes


Your baby spends most of the time sleeping. Their comfort and safety determine the crib mattress you select. At No Bull Mattress, we stock mini-crib and standard crib mattresses ideal for your nursery.

A mini crib measures 24″ wide and 34″ long and is ideal for a small room or placing two mini-cribs for twins. You can also use mini-cribs in a relative’s home, where you may need to go for sleepovers. 

Your baby will fit in a standard crib for several years. Besides, you can convert it into a toddler bed to avoid buying another bed until when the baby no longer needs the barricade fixed on cribs. If you have a standard crib mattress, you can still use it on your toddler bed depending on the bed size.

Crib mattresses range from 4″-6″. Choose a crib mattress that fits perfectly on your crib, reducing any inches of space, to enhance your baby’s safety.

Twin mattresses fit perfectly in small corners to give room for other bedroom furniture. They are the best for kids who have outgrown their toddler beds and have to share a small room or accommodate more furniture in their rooms. They measure 38” by 75″. 

You can choose a twin mattress when shopping on a budget, as they are inexpensive. However, they are too small if you want your kids to share a bed or when their friends come for a sleepover. A twin mattress is considered best for single sleepers or possibly a single adult. Twin mattresses are also wonderful for bunk beds.

Twin XL 

Your twin XL mattress is 38″ by 80″. You can put two of them together to form a standard king-size mattress. They are ideal when you want kids to  be single sleepers, but you can join them to accommodate guests sharing a bed.

Twin XL mattresses are inexpensive. However, if you are graduating from a twin mattress to a twin XL, you need to purchase bigger bedding as this mattress is longer than a twin mattress by 5 “. You are likely to find them in college dorms, hotel rooms, or small bedrooms. It is your personal preference if you think this type of mattress is needed.


This is the standard mattress for standard adult size beds. They are perfect for normal size adults and can be used by individuals or with a partner. Measuring 54″ by 74″, they fit well in medium size bedrooms. These mattresses are used in restaurants and medium size bedrooms as a single mattress. This is a great size for guest bedrooms.

Full/Double XL

This mattress is perfect for you if you or your partner requires extra length. They measure 54″ by 80′, making it 6 inches wider than a full/double bed. They are more expensive than standard double mattresses and may ask for special bedding. 

They are wide enough for sharing partners with a big bedroom. However, they may not be fit for tall users.


This is a perfect mattress if you have a large bedroom with 80″ by 80″ dimensions. It allows you to shift your sleeping direction without changing the direction your bed faces. This is one of the common sizes.

It is big enough for partners with large body frames or those who value some space to turn and toss unhindered while still sharing their bed. Look for queen size bedding to match this mattress. Most master bedrooms have a queen size mattress.

The king mattress is 76″ wide and 80″ long. You will love this mattress if your partner requires extra length. It is also wide enough to accommodate a child that you need to share your bed with occasionally. 

Purchase this mattress if you have an extra-large bedroom or do not require extra furniture in the room. You may also encounter challenges when moving your bulky king mattress. 

California King or Cal King

With 84″ in length and 72″ width, the california king bed fits a long and narrow room. It is ideal for taller people. 

However, you may need to ask for custom-made bedding, as they are not easily available on the market as they are not a standard size. This may also push your budget higher.

Wyoming King

If you occasionally share your bed with yoru pets, consider getting these mattress types. It is wide enough for you and your partner and leaves enough space for the pets without compromising your safety or that of the pets.

This is 84″ by 84″ mattress requires a large room. It is also a good size for tall users. You may need custom-made accessories, but you can consult a reputable dealer like No Bull Mattress on where you can source them.  

Alaskan King

This 108″ by 108″ mattress requires an extra-large room. It can accommodate four sharing adults and is perfect for you if you occasionally need to share your bed with your big kids or friends. This is the largest mattress size you can find.

This mattress allows you to get into bed at different times without waking up your partner. You can also comfortably share your bed with your pets and change your sleeping position without knocking each other.

However, you may need to spend more on custom-made bed accessories for this mattress. Besides, you may not move or flip it without assistance.
