    We have a queen bed, but someday will upgrade to a king. I agree with you that a full sized bed is too small for 2 adults.

    We have a queen, but I’d like to upgrade to a King. They (and the sheets/pillows/pillow cases) are just too expensive to justify it right now.

    We have a queen. I’ve always wanted a king or a california king, but we’ve gone to a few hotels and gotten king size beds and…WE DIDN’T LIKE IT. I suggest trying before you buy in this case lol

    We started with  a Full and it was just too small. I sleep like the dead. Seriously I fall alseep and wake up in almost the same exact spot in the the same exact position. DH, on the other hand, is like a spinning top. He moves, moves, moves. We needed a bigger bed! Friends gave us their queen and it was just too soft. It was better size wise than the Full, but we just had to get something different because the soft bed was killing our backs. So, we finally bought a King. We love it, but it does feel lonely sometimes…

    @Ms.GoodEarth:  We have a queen and it is perfect for us! I’m only 5’2 and hes only 5’4, and we are both of small to average build. 

    We stayed in a hotel King sized bed a few weeks ago and we were so lost in it we could barely find each other! haha

    We have a full bed (I think? Australian sizing is slightly different I think) and will upgrade to a King bed.

    We have california kings at work and while I love them in theory they are too big for me to get comfortable to sleep in.

    We have a queen-sized bed. Started out with my old full-sized bed from home, then we decided to get a bed that was a bit bigger. Works much better for us, especially since the dog likes to stretch out sideways on the bed.


    I’ve never been a fan of king-sized – they seem to be wider, but shorter (at least in picutres). Plus as another Bee mentioned, the cost of bedding is just a bit much for me to justify at this time, or anytime in the near future.

    @Twyla_Smith:  Every time I see your name pop up, I read it as Taylor_ Swift! 😛

    Kinda like how I read NovaRising’s name as NuvaRing. hahahah

    Maybe I need to get my eyes checked!

    @Ms.GoodEarth:  i think a full is much too small…it’s nice to be close…but sometimes people need space!! seriously – we have a king and sometimes (particularly when our son craws in bed with us) it’s STILL too small…i find mysef with less than a foot of space with either between the two of them or on the edge of the bed…lol.

    ive never tried a queen, so i cant attest to the size…but i love our king, even if it does take up half of out bedroom.  we still snuggle more often than not, but it gives us both all the room we need when we dont. I like to spread out when i sleep…..

    @Ms.GoodEarth:  California king! We have an 80lb dog and a 50lb dog. So it sometimes feels small when they cuddle with us. We used to have a full sized bed before and it was DEFINiTELY too small.
