When looking for a new mattress, you must have seen that there are actually several different sizes. Which is the most suitable one for you? Is it simply the more expensive, the better? Well, if it’s such an easy question like that, this article should end up right here. But, my answer is ‘probably not.’ It actually depends on your needs and the current situation, but if you are quite well off and insist, never mind what I’ll say then.
Take Nighslee's mattress as an example. The 10-inch Cool Gel Memory Foam Mattress has five different size: The Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and king size mattress size.
Before introducing mattress sizes one by one, let’s start with this comparison picture first, which shall give you some basic understanding about them
Twin XL Size
- Size (L x W x D) 80" x 39" x 10"
- Weight 44.1 lb.
This one is at the same width as the Twin-sized one, but a bit longer. The only difference is that the XL version will provide a better sleeping experience for a taller person.
- Size (L x W x D) 75" x 54" x 10"
- Weight 56.6 lb.
The Full-sized mattress is also a little bit different from the Twin size. The length is same as 75", but the Full-sized one is wider than the regular one. This one is suitable for one person who wants to sleep more comfortably, also for two slim persons.
- Size (L x W x D) 80" x 60" x 10"
- Weight 66.5 lb.
As in the picture, the Queen size is normally what we call a ‘double bed’. It will provide you cozy sleeps with the large size, enough for two persons.
King Size Mattress Size
- Size (L x W x D) 80" x 76" x 10"
- Weight 84.4 lb.
Well, king size mattress size is the most luxurious one, the King size. If you still feel a bit dissatisfied with the Queen-sized one, you’ll probably fall in love with this one. The King size mattress is super comfortable with one or two or however many persons to sleep on as you want. Imagine lying down this extra-large bed, rolling over and over as you like. Isn’t it like a beautiful dream - or perhaps a mattress advertisement?
After reading the previous paragraphs, maybe you’ll ask, why is it probably wrong to say ‘the more expensive, the better?’ Or, ‘the larger, the better?’ This is because when deciding which size of mattress to purchase, you should also consider about your actual needs. If your new mattress is just as large as your bedroom, or even larger, you won’t be able to set it up and sleep on it. It is also a bit meaningless for one person to have a super-large-sized bed (but never mind if you are well off and insist as I’ve said before).
Have you decided which one you will purchase?
