Large And Oversized Mattress Sizes Explained
If you are looking for a substantial mattress, there are several types of mattress sizes that you can choose from. Many regular brick-and-mortar stores do not carry this oversized or substantial mattress, so you may need to go to a specialty store or order the bed.
Here are the bare oversized mattresses, the room size you will need to fit one of these in your bedroom, and the average price you may expect to pay for each size.
|Mattress Type||Dimension |
(Width x Length
Room Size Required
|Alaska King||108” x 108”||14’ x 14”||$1,500 to $5,000|
|Alberta King||96” x 96”||13’ x 13’||$1,500 to $5,000|
|Wyoming King||84” x 84”||12’ x 12’||$1,500 to $4,000|
|Texas King||80” x 98”||12’ x 14’||$2,000 to $4,000|
|Family Size||144” x 80”||17’ x 12’||$2,500 to $5,000|
|Family Size||120’ x 80”||17’ x 12’||$2,000 to $5,000|
|Family XL||144” x 84”||17’ x 12’||$2,500 to $6,000|
The largest size mattress is the Family XL which is 4” longer than the Family Size Mattress. It is also much longer than some of the other King size mattresses.
How To Choose A Large-Size Mattress
It can be challenging to decide exactly which oversized mattress to buy. One indication must be how large your bedroom is and whether the bed can fit into the room.
Here are some things you should remember:
- Not Always Easy To Find Bedding – Many significant stores that carry bedding do not carry these oversize mattresses, so you will probably need to purchase bedding from a specialty store. They may not always have precisely the design you may want.
- Box Springs Need To Match Mattress – If you are using a box spring for your bed, you will need to buy the box spring at the same time as your mattress, as not all the stores will have the box springs you need.
- Cost – Oversized mattresses will cost you significantly more than a standard-size mattress. Everything from the mattress, box springs, and bedding will all cost more.
- Room Size – One of your primary considerations in if you can even have an oversized mattress is your bedroom size. If your bedroom is too small, a large mattress will not work, or it may take up the entire bedroom.
- Moving Mattresses – Oversized mattresses are not easy to move in and out of places. If you live in an apartment or have smaller hallways, stairs, or doorways, it may not be possible to move the mattress to where you need it to be unless you get a coil spring mattress that can be compressed to a size that you can carry.
It would be best to consider these things when buying an oversized mattress. They can be great if you have children or animals that sleep on your bed, as they will be able to give everyone room to sleep comfortably.
Standard Size Mattresses Explained
Compared to oversized mattresses, the standard mattress sizes are the ones you can find in most stores. It is also easy to buy sheets and bedding for these mattresses as most stores keep stock of these sizes.
Here are the standard mattress sizes:
(Width X Length)
|Twin||38” x 75”|
|Twin XL||38” x 80”|
|Full||54” x 74”|
|Queen||60” x 80”|
|King||76” x 80”|
|California King||72” x 84”|
These are the standard mattress sizes; you can see that even the King size beds and the California king-size beds are not as large as the oversized mattresses.
If you want a substantial mattress, you must get one of the oversized mattresses. If you want a large mattress that you can still buy sheets or other things at one of the big boxes or other retail stores, consider getting a king-size bed or a California king mattress.
The largest mattress you can buy is an oversized mattress or Family XL. The largest standard mattress you can buy is a king or a California king-size mattress.

Why did the US Tariffs Not Stop US Importers from Buying from China?
The placing of US Tariff’s on made in China products, has not totally stopped the import of Chinese-made goods into the United States. Some of the reasons for this include China’s highly developed supply chain, the streamlining of Chinese manufacturing, China’s manufacturing cost advantage, the Chinese currency and the reality of how difficult it is to move an established manufacturing supply chain. All of these factors help ensure that US companies will continue to purchase products that are made in China.
