Which Mattress Size Is Right For Me?

Here at Goedeker's, we understand that the differences between mattress sizes can be a bit confusing. The differences between a King and California King, for example, may not be common knowledge. Let us help you out by explaining each of these different types and which one would fit your lifestyle the best. If you have any more in-depth questions, please give us a call at 1-888-768-1710 to talk with one of our friendly sales people.

A Twin or Single mattress is 39" x 75". Most full grown adults will probably not fit comfortably in a bed this size. This mattress sleeps one person and is most commonly used for day beds, trundles, and children's beds. Shop all Twin mattresses »

Twin XL

A Twin XL mattress is 39" x 80". This may not seem like much of a difference from the Twin mattress but that extra space means a lot to a lanky college kid. Shop all Twin XL/Twin Extra Long mattresses »


A Full or Double mattress is 54" x 75". Two full grown adults sharing this bed might find it a little tight. This mattress comfortably sleeps one full grown adult. This mattress is best for smaller rooms looking to accommodate one person. Shop all Full mattresses »


A Queen mattress is 60" x 80". This mattress sleeps two people and is best for small master bedrooms. If you have difficulty getting this bed up the stairs or around tight corners split box springs are available in some models. Shop all Queen mattresses »


A King mattress is 76" x 80". This mattress sleeps two people comfortably. It is the same length as a Queen mattress but has much more space available. All King mattresses come with two twin box springs. Shop all King mattresses »

California King/Western King

A California King or Western King mattress is 72" x 84". This is the longest mattress but is not quite as wide as a standard King mattress. This mattress is common on the West coast and suits much taller adults. All California King mattresses come with two split box springs. Shop all California King/Western King mattresses »
