Fit For a Queen Mattresses!
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
Size is obviously a pretty basic consideration when choosing a new mattress, but you should take care not to be caught out by the non-standard sizes that have come on to the market. If you are thinking of upgrading from a standard Double to a Queen then you need to be aware of all the types of Queen mattresses out there now, as you don’t want to get your new purchase home only to find that it doesn’t quite fit in your room how you expected it to!
Most Queen mattresses you will find will likely be the standard 60 × 80 inches (152 × 203 cm) that virtually all manufacturers make. Indeed when you see a price quoted for a mattress the retailer will often quote the Queen mattress price as the guideline price for the range, as this size is probably the best selling size in the US for couples. It is 6 inches wider and 5 inches longer than a standard full size mattress so couples upgrading to a standard Queen size mattress will find plenty of extra room to play around and sleep in! Just make sure that your bedroom can handle the larger mattress and there is enough space on the 3 sides of the bed to walk around.
The Olympic or Expanded Queen is a wider mattress at 66 × 80 inches (168 × 203 cm) and is a novelty size made by Simmons. The California Queen (which is mainly a wood-framed water bed size) is 60 × 84 inches (152 × 213 cm.)
Because of the popularity of the standard queen size, manufacturers make a lot of these models so there often great bargains available, especially online. King size or California King beds may have to be ordered form the retailer but most will stock the standard Queen mattress sets and sometimes they will have clearance sales of items that are out of date or have been superseded by newer lines. Keep a look out for these heavily discounted items if you are looking for a new Queen mattress.
