Double bed size: how big is a double bed?

If you’re buying a bed and/or a mattress, then it’s important to know what size you’re looking for. There are a number of sizes to choose from, and they vary from country to country, so you need to get it right. In this article, we’ll explain exactly what’s meant by a ‘double’: how large it is, how it compares to other mattress sizes, and how a UK double differs from a US double. That will help you decide whether a double is the best mattress for your needs.

At 135cm wide and 190cm long (approximately 53 inches wide and 75 inches long) a UK double is one of the most popular mattress sizes, because it sits in between smaller standard sizes (small single, single or small double) and the larger sizes ( king and super king).
