Double Size Mattresses

The term double size mattress is used interchangeably with the term full size mattress. A standard double size or full size mattress measures 54 inches by 75 inches. How the term double bed came to be is still a matter of speculation. A twin size bed, despite the implication of the word twin, is designed to be used by one person. A standard size twin mattress is only 39 inches wide. A double bed can accommodate two sleepers and this might be where the description originated, the double or full is not a double twin.

Double Size Mattresses

So whether it’s called a double size bed or a full size bed, this mattress size is perfect for the solo sleeper and for couples. A double mattress is 6 inches wider than an antique or three quarter size and 6 inches narrower than a standard queen mattress. One of four commonly available mattress sizes, the double size mattress is a good choice for sleepers who have outgrown a twin.

Double or full sized mattresses can be purchased in an extra long or XL size. A double or full XL is the same with width as a standard double, 54 inches, and is 80 inches long. Another specialty size double mattress is a Tall Man. A double size Tall Man measures 54 inches wide by 84 inches long. Since the double XL and double Tall Man mattresses are considered specialty sizes, they might not be available at just any retail mattress store. A standard double or full size mattress can be found everywhere mattresses are sold. When shopping for a specialty size double mattress you might find it necessary to order the mattress and wait for several weeks.

When choosing a double size mattress it is important to remember that not all mattresses are the same. While shopping for a new mattress you will discover that there are big differences in the way mattresses are constructed. Lot’s of new materials are being used in today’s modern mattresses. So if you not been mattress shopping for awhile, electing the mattress that best suits your individual needs requires some research before you even set foot in a mattress store.

Innersprings, Memory Foam and Double Mattresses

The most popular type of double mattress is the innerspring though foam mattresses are gaining in popularity. Hybrid double mattresses may use a combination of an innerspring support core and various densities of latex foam.

Made from polyurethane, visco-elastic memory foam has been around for a number of years. Commonly referred to as memory foam, it was originally developed for use by NASA in the space capsules. NASA declined to actually use memory in manned space flight since early formulations released chemical vapors. This process of out-gassing is typical of foam, paint, solvents and other chemical products.

Memory foam was is quite dense and consists of millions of tiny air pockets. The more dense the foam, the stiffer it will feel. The density of memory foam is measured in pounds per cubic foot. Most memory foam mattresses use foam that weighs between 4 and 5 pounds per cubic foot. Memory foam mattresses are typically made using a combination of latex foam with a 3 or 4 inch layer of memory foam on top. The memory foam is said to provide support to the body without creating pressure points. Using weight and body heat, the foam adapts to the sleeper.

Memory foam has found its way into other types of mattresses including those using traditional innerspring designs and air adjustable beds. Innerspring mattresses are still the most popular choice among consumers. In recent years, mattress manufacturers have combined the traditional innerspring with latex and polyurethane foams to create a new generation of mattresses. It is quite common to find mattresses that utilize an innerspring core, wrapped in foam and topped with various densities latex and polyurethane foams.

These hybrid innerspring mattresses give consumers the best of both designs. The number one consideration for most mattress buyers, whether buying a twin, double or a king size, is support. Comfort comes in a close second.

At DoubleMattress.com, we recommend using a quality foundation or box spring to adequately support your double mattress, a mattress cover and a quality frame.

A durable quality bed frame is an absolute necessity and must be strong enough to support the weight of the mattress, foundations and the sleeper.
