Some companies additionally produce an XL twin mattress that is a few inches longer than the standard. Twin mattresses are also known as single mattresses. A full-sized mattress, also called a double, is actually meant for a single person shorter than 5 feet 5 inches tall, according to the Better Sleep Council. In fact, both the twin and the double are typically too short for most adults, especially men. If a couple sleeps on a double mattress, each person has only as much sleeping space as a crib provides.
A standard king provides approximately the same amount of width for two people as two twin beds. Similarly, two XL twins pushed together is almost exactly the same as a standard king. The California king is similar in size to the king, except it is four inches narrower and four inches longer.
