    We have a king size, I love it.

    I do not like to be touched when I sleep. And we have 3 dogs that sleep on the bed.

    This may sound crazy, but Fiance and I currently have a FULL.  We just have not upgraded since we moved in together.  Our plan is to upgrade to a queen, but we want to wait to see about moving/etc after he’s done with grad-school to do that.  So we’re stuck with the full for at least a year!

    Definitely King.  I don’t know how people sleep together in a queen.  Every time Fiance and I go somewhere and the hotel room has two queens we end up sleeping in separate beds because there just isn’t enough room in one queen for both of us to have any turning around space.

    OP: I don’t know about your plans for children are (if you already have them/will be having them in the future) but a King bed might be a better investment if you’d want extra room for your FI/kids/pets all in the same bed.

    We got a queen size when we bought our mattress.  If we move into a bigger place, I would definitely get a king or maybe a California king.

    We have a queen but we’ll definitely upgrade. The only reason I bought a queen was because my last apartment wasn’t big enough for a king. It’s fine… but whenever we sleep in hotels that extra room feels luxurious 🙂

    We had a queen mattress before we got married and while it was ok, it is nothing like a King!  Yes there is a lot more room, unless you have 2 dogs sleeping with you:), but I love it because I toss and turn a lot and with the King, I do not disturb DH.  I say if you have the room go for the King size!!  As for the accessories and sheets and such, yeah they are expensive, but if you wait and find them on sale they are not that bad!!

    My husband is 6′-3″ as well and that’s why we went for the California King so his feet wouldn’t be hanging off the bed.

    California King sheets are the most expensive. I always look out for sale and was able to snag a flannel sheet set on Overstock a month or so ago for $25! after coupons and such!

    I’ve seen sales regularly on comforter sets on Macys for $49 but they usually have really bad reviews so I don’t buy them. Our one comforter set was a wedding gift, it was $99 from Overstock. Not a bad price.

    Def think long term because it’s such a $$$ purchase.

    We have a queen, but want a king so bad! When we travel we always ask for a king bed at the hotel–they’re just so much more fun!

    We got a king last year and I kind of wish we’d gotten a queen (we were upgrading from a full). The sheets and the comforter are just so huge that they’re kind of a pain to deal with, and I almost feel like we have too much space now–and we’re both really tall!

    We LOVE our king bed! When I moved in, he had a full and that didn’t last long. Within two weeks we bought a king! We love it! I need space while sleeping and the king gives us plenty of room. We both love it! If you don’t need as much space, then a queen should be just fine.
