What are Queen Bed & Mattress Sizes?
Longer and wider than a Full size, but narrower than a King size, a Queen sized bed or mattress is 60″ wide and 80″ long. This length is identical to a regular King, but it is 4″ shorter than a California King. The standard bed and mattress sizes are:
SIZES — DIMENSIONS (IN) — DIMENSIONS (CM)
Crib — 27” X 52” — 68.5cm X 132cm
Twin — 39” X 75” — 96.5cm X 190.5cm

Queen and King bed and mattress sizes were introduced in the United States in the 1940s. Twin and Full sizes were the norm then. The new, larger standards took another decade to become popular, however. Here is a History of King and Queen Mattress Sizes here from Bed Times Magazine .
Should You Choose Memory Foam?
This site focuses on memory foam brands. However, we offer below coil spring and other types of mattresses. If you are considering memory foam however, a number of its benefits are worth noting. Memory foam provides a number of advantages over standard coil mattresses. The material is at once both firm (providing proper support) and yet able to conform to the body shape of the user, thus evenly distributing one’s weight on the mattress. This property, known as visco-elasticity, varies based on the particular manufacturing method used. For a more in-depth look at the production and science of memory foam, see our dedicated page: What is Memory Foam?
How expensive are Memory Foam Mattresses?
A queen size memory foam mattress will -on average- come at a higher price point than a similar spring coil brand. But there is a wide price variation since the technology is now used by numerous manufacturers, allowing for marketplace competition. Below are our featured brands. We have dedicated pages reviewing a number of manufacturers.
Are There Different Types of Memory Foam?
There have been great advances in the last decade in the production of mattresses and products in the bedding category. In the case of memory foam, many differing production methods are now used to provide a wide variety of materials. Gel infused products; metal infused foam; combinations with material such as latex are all now possible. Thus it is now easy to obtain mattresses that have a cooling effect on your body or that absorb and nullify the motion of a partner lying on the bed with you, to give two examples.

Queen Bed Mattress Set Prices
Bed frame prices vary greatly depending on the materials used in manufacture and the detail workmanship involved. You can opt for a basic metal or wooden frame piece, effectively acting as simply a support for your mattress, or you can go for a highly ornamented product with detailed, finely crafted head boards and foot boards.
Memory foam mattresses come at a higher price point than standard inner coil spring models. This is a result of the higher cost to manufacture. Within a particular niche, prices can vary greatly depending on the type of foam used, the material of the layers of the product as well as additional properties such as whether the mattress is entirely of made of memory foam or is a hybrid.
