Had seen reviews indicating frame was longer than standard so waited until it arrived before ordering a mattress. Glad I did. It is much longer than standard so I bought a full XL mattress which fits perfectly. Only issue with bed are several sets of marks on the frame that could with a long stretch be considered "distressed" but in fact look like small clamp marks where the frame was held while being finished. They are not super noticeable but are irritating. My daughter loves her new bed though.
