BF spent the weekend with me at my place and I only have a full size mattress. We are both big people (BF is 6’7 and a big brawny guy plus I’m overweight) and honestly, there is no room! We can’t even lay down flat on our back next to each other without our elbows bumping each other.
So BF went back to his place Monday morning and I hate to admit it but…I was glad he went home. I was looking forward to being able to stretch out in my bed and have so much more room!
And of course, I had a great night of sleep last night lol. I feel so much more rested. I can’t wait until we buy a queen mattress in the next few months. We will both be able to sleep so much better.
So what size mattress do you and your SO sleep on? Do you look forward to the nights when you get to sleep alone? Haha

Love our King, wouldn’t go back. 🙂

Our bedroom is 9 ft x 9 ft (boooo city living), so we have a double/full size. My guy is tall and his feet hang off the bed, but they’d hang off a queen and maybe even a king as well.
A double is comfortable for us with plenty of room, but we both have fit/lean builds.

We have a king and I would never buy something smaller now.

We have a queen, but I’m thinking once we get a house we should probably buy a king. SO is super tall and moves all over the place in his sleep. Like, most nights he stays with me I wake up almost falling out of bed.

We have a Queen size… and I’m 5’2″ and still take up 95% of it! My poor 5’8″ SO is always pushed to the edge and has to wake me up to make me move over.

Cal King and I love it! FI is 6’3″ slim and I’m 5’3″ slim, so I can sleep without even knowing here’s there. Lol!
But FI likes to cuddle sometimes and I can still be dangling off the bed when he has all that extra space behind him. Lol.

We sleep on a king. Anything smaller and neither of us sleep well. He’s 6’2, I’m 5’8, so we’re not particularly big, but we like to have our own space when we sleep. We don’t even sahre blankets.
I don’t think we’d ever do anything smaller!

We have a king and will never be able to go smaller again. We’re both fairly lean so it has nothing to do with our size but rather just our love of stretching out. We typically cuddle for a few minutes but then we roll over and put space between us because we get too hot being close together.
We just purchased a queen for our guest bedroom and I was shocked at how small it looked after having a king for a year! Not sure how we will manage to sleep in a full when we visit my parents!

@LadyBlackheart: We live together, but I moved into SOs apartment and he has a full. When we move, we will move my queen into our bedroom and sleep on that. The full gets a little crowded, but it is nice in the winter when it’s cold. Sweaty in the summer when it’s hot! I don’t mind, but I will admit that when he leaves for work before I do and I can stretch out, I love it!

We sleep perfectly comfortably on a queen.

We currently have a queen but would love to have a king. DH says I push him out of the bed every time we sleep together (which is not always because we work opposite shifts). He’s like a giant space heater, I swear.
When we first moved in together, we shared my twin mattress… i’m not kidding. And we are NOT small people.

We have a King and I wouldn’t have it any other way, especially since our 60 lb dog sleeps in bed with us!

haha…we have a twin! It isn’t really a problem since we’re always touching or hugging while sleeping anyway. Used to have a queen and we would only sleep on a small section of it. Our living situation is pretty temporary and he’s gone so much for work, it really didn’t make sense to get a big bed.
Actually, it kinda sucks when I’m mad at him. If I don’t wanna touch him, I have to flatten myself sideways against the wall haha
