Queen Size Bed & Mattress Dimensions & Measurements: Width & Length
Queen Mattress Dimensions are 60" x 80"
Queen size mattress dimensions are 60" x 80". Currently the dominant size bed in America, Queen size beds dimensions are 6" wider (and 5" longer) than a Full size bed. These added inches can make all the difference in comfort, but each adult still has 9" less than the width of a standard Twin bed. However, it's a good choice for guest rooms and smaller master bedrooms. Queen size mattresses can use standard pillows or slightly larger queen size pillows. Approx. width per person: 30"
Pros: A better fit for 2 adults. The 80" length comfortably accommodates most adults. Bedding is easy to find.
Cons: At only 30" of width for each person (only 3" wider than a Full) many people find a Queen is still too narrow to comfortably sleep a couple. Note that some bedding is sold as "Full/Queen" and may not perfectly fit either size, so check the dimensions before purchasing.
