Everybody knows the story of “Goldilocks.” She broke into the home of the Three Bears, stole their breakfast, and then tried out each mattress like Cheap Sheep on an epic “nap quest.” Goldilocks felt that Papa Bear’s king bed was way too tall — NEXT! Then she thought there was too much room at the foot of Mama Bear’s queen bed — NEXT!

The search finally ended when Goldie took a trip to dreamland in Baby Bear’s full-sized bed — Just right! Goldilocks may have her “issues,” but give the girl some credit — she knew exactly what mattress size was best for her!

Let’s look at some of the different mattress sizes and what they offer sleepers.

Twin Mattress
This is the smallest mattress size available, making it perfect for young children. Twin mattresses are 38 inches wide and 75 inches long, which means they are too small for most adults. However, this mattress type can be very convenient in tight living quarters.

Full Mattress
Full beds are the same length as twin beds, but are wider at 53 inches. Many parents choose this mattress size for children to give them more space for reading and playing. Full beds are perfect for sleepers 5 feet 5 inches or smaller, which is why Goldilocks declared the full mattress “just right” for her Zzz’s.

Queen Mattress
The queen is the most popular mattress size, measuring 60 inches wide and 80 inches long. This mattress gives single sleepers the perfect chance to sprawl out, but the space can be cramped for couples. Queen mattresses are often used for guest rooms and small master bedrooms.

King Mattress
Measuring 76 inches wide and 80 inches long, the king mattress gives couples all the space they need during bedtime. It also leaves more than enough room for any kids or pets who want to wake mom and dad up on the weekends! The king mattress might be too big for some bedrooms, so make sure you measure your space before mattress shopping.
