We slept on a Full for almost 5 years!! And my husband is 6’2…so needless to say it was a bit crammed.

When we moved into our house we bought a King and I could never again sleep on anything smaller ๐Ÿ™‚

We sleep in a queen. Its the perfect size!! Big enough to sprall out and small enough to encourage myself to not let our son sleep with us.. ๐Ÿ™‚

We have King, but HeFlutter usually has succeeded in making it feel more like a double by the time the night is over…I’m practically falling off every night!

We had a full sized bed for 4+ years and for the most part made it work. I’m not that big and he’s 6′, but we both sort of sleep big. Our biggest issue with the bed was that it was worn and had a slope to it so we’d be rolling towards each other. Now we have a king which I LOVE, but I would have been willing to tough it out a little longer on the full if it meant having a bigger bed later.

We’re currently in a double, and I don’t mind it very much but it’s rough for my husband! He’s 6’4″ and not the most cuddly sleeper, he gets very hot at night. Luckily I’m on the smaller size, or I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t both fit on the bed.

We want to get a king, but we’re saving our pennies for a Tempur Pedic so it might be awhile!

We have a California King now but we slept on a full for over 3 years! I can’t believe we did that. Our new bed is wonderful and we’ve never slept better.

Queen-sized. MY Fiance is big built and I am quite petite so we have ample space to move around!

We have a queen size bed. I think it’s just the right size. We’ve had kings at hotels and I feel like he’s too far away lol. And we had a double once at a hotel and that was a little too cozy.

I have a full, and he has a queen, which we will be sharing once we get married.

We have a cal king ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a lifesaver because I’m like a sprawled eagle when I sleep, and since I was used to a sleeping in a queen alone before I moved in with SO, I need my space!

If I were you, I’d spring for the queen! I love our big bed.

We had a full for a while but it was so cramped and my husband’s legs were always off it! We’ve had a California King for a while and will never go back! He’s 6’3 so the length is more comfortable for him. And our dog sleeps with us so we need the room.

DH and I share a queen and it’s fine. A king would be better, but you are actually forgetting the cost of tax, delivery and bedding you would also have to pay if you buy a whole new bed. I estimated the cost of replacing our bed at over $3K including the new bed frame, headboard, mattress, bedding, tax and shipping. And that’s if we go as cheap as possible!

ETA: We also don’t have any pets sharing our bed and DH and I are relatively small compared to ‘average’ which is probably why a Queen is fine for us.
