Queen mattresses are 60 inches wide by 80 inches long. These mattresses should comfortably accommodate two average-sized adults. They are larger than a full mattress but smaller than a king-size.
2. How thick is a queen-size mattress?
Queen-size mattresses come in a range of thicknesses. Most mattresses range from 6 inches thick to 16 inches thick. Pillowtop mattresses are going to be thicker than regular options, so consider this when buying fitted sheets for your mattress.
3. Is a queen-size mattress bigger than a double mattress?
Yes. A double mattress is another name for a full-size mattress and measures 54 inches wide by 75 inches long. A queen-size mattress is longer and wider at 60 inches wide by 80 inches long. Double mattresses are generally considered to comfortably fit one sleeping adult.
4. Can you use a full-size mattress on a queen-size bed?
No, not really. A full-size mattress would stay on a queen-size platform bed, but it wouldn't fit properly and there would be gaps on the side and bottom. This might detract from the style of your bed, so it's best to match the size of your mattress and your platform.
5. Can you use a full-size box spring with a queen-size mattress?
No, the full-size box spring will be too narrow and too short by about 5 inches. You will need a queen-size box spring to properly fit a queen-size mattress and provide the right amount of stability and style.
