If you are like me, you probably have trouble when it comes to bed and mattress measurements. I am always trying to remember which is wider, a Cal-king or an Eastern King. So, to simplify things for all of you who have had the same problem, I have compiled all of the measurements in one place.
King: (also known as a Eastern King) widest on the market, 76W X 80L
California King: (also known as a Western King) longest on the market, 72W X 84L
Queen: 60W X 80L
Full: (also known as a Double) 54W X 75L
Twin Extra Long: (Twin XL) 39W X 80L
Twin: (also known as a Single) 39W X 75L
Crib Mattress: 27W X 52L
When purchasing bedding, it is also helpful to know that you get more with quality bedding. Chandler Collection Bedding is a good example of amazing bedding that fits much larger. Twin quilts will fit a twin, full and often a queen. Always check your measurements on your bedding to ensure to desired look. Bed skirts will also come in various lengths so you will need to know how high your frame sits. When purchasing sheets, the higher thread count usually has deeper pockets. This is a must if your mattress has a pillow top.
