Through the years there have been many standard bedding charts authored...trouble is that they are all slightly different. This makes buying the best size for you bedroom confusing at best. While we have a general idea of what the difference is between a twin size bed and a queen size bed, we don't actually know the measurements of the beds.
Standards vary from country to country, manufacturer to manufacturer and even product to product. Beds are uausally labelled according to the dimensions of the mattress. Bed linens typically are larger than the 'standard mattress sizes' but each manufacturer has their own definition of standard.
So...while there are no absolutes in standard bedding sizes, the table below uses the most commonly accepted sizes and our interpretation of the 'standard' sizes. Use this chart as a guideline but do double check the dimensions of your mattress before you buy.
