King (76" x 80")

The best King mattresses are designed for couples who love extra space while they sleep. Great for sharing a bed with an active or very light sleeper, king size beds provide plenty of space for one person to move without disturbing the other. Be sure to measure how much floor space a king will take up before buying one.
