Go long with a twin XL mattress

Twin XL mattresses are designed for a single person but are extra-long to accommodate those who are taller than average.

What is a twin XL sized mattress?

A twin XL sized mattress measures 38 x 80 inches in size to accommodate people who are six feet or taller, or kids who might possibly grow to that height. Compared to a regular twin mattress, which is 38 inches wide x 75 inches in length, a twin XL mattress adds an extra five inches to the length so you can fully stretch out your legs, with room to spare. A length of 80 inches is more than 6.6 feet.

A twin XL sized mattress still offers the same width to accommodate a single person as a standard twin mattress. If the room or area where it will be placed can accommodate the extra length, a twin XL mattress might offer a more comfortable sleep for taller individuals and growing kids.

A twin XL mattress might also be handy for someone who has a dog that likes to sleep at the foot of the bed.

Do two twin XL mattresses equal a king?

Since a king-sized bed typically measures 76 x 80 inches, a twin XL mattress is indeed the same size as a king. Thus, you could get two twin XL mattresses to use with a king-sized bed frame if desired. This could be for two people who sleep together but require different firmness levels, or if one person tends to move around a lot and disrupts the other.

Note, however, that twin XL sized mattresses aren't as common as other sizes, and the same goes for accessories for them. With that said, a twin blanket typically measures 66 x 90 inches, so it will fit a twin XL mattress, though it might be tight with an extra-thick one.

A twin comforter is usually 68 x 88 compared to about 68 x 90 inches with a twin XL comforter, so it should fit as well. A king-sized comforter is usually about 102 x 92 inches, so it should also drape nicely over two twin XL sixed mattresses.
