    The queen we have is perfectly sized. We used to share a twin bed when he’d sleep over at my place before we moved in!

    Kings are also longer, so if your guy is tall, that could be part of his consideration as well and worth considering for his comfort.

    If a king would fit in our room, I would totally upgrade to it. But right now we have a full. I think we’re going to a queen soon…thank goodness. Even though they seem much bigger, a king size really isn’t that huge. My mom has one and it doesn’t even seem that big.

    Ugh, we have a full right now…so small, but we don’t want to spring for a larger one until Mr. Bruschetta graduates and starts working.  We’re getting used to the tight quarters, though!

    We have a california king, but my Fi is also a pretty big guy (6’3" and 225).  When he is gone, I just let the dogs sleep in the bed with me, and it doesn’t seem so big .  Before that, we slept together in a queen and that was fine,  but it was a little cramped.  And my Fi’s feet hung off the bed.

    We have a King bed and it was the best investment we ever made! I love it! BUT, I am the type of person who doesn’t like to touch my husband while sleeping! It’s perfect if you like your own space. I say, if you have the room, go for a King!

    We’ve shared full and queen size beds when we stay with our parents, but those are no where near enough room. We have a King. Fiance is 6’3" and a sprawling sleeper, Like diagonal and all over my side of the bed, he’s a snuggler too.

    I’m a pretty stationary sleeper but occasionally I wake up sprawled all over his side when I wake up so the room is nice if you’re a roller. Fiance says I tease him in the morning when he’s getting ready for work by rolling over to his side. Maybe I unconciously know he’s leaving so I roll over looking for him, or maybe it’s just that his side is nice and warm and he’s stolen half the covers during the night so I’m seeking warmth.

    I like the idea of a cal king as they are longer, only by maybe 8 inches, but I think he’d still try to sprawl over to my side. Cal Kings are also a little narower than Eastern Kings (what a lot of people call a regular king.) So I think we need one of these: http://www.hastens.com/en/THE-COLLECTION/Continental-beds/Excelsior-Round/ Or these would be neat: http://www.frogview.com/show1.php?file=4186 Sweet: anyone have a trampolene they want to repurpose?

    We have a queen.  We will upgrade when we move into our house.  We are getting a king sized bed.

    We have a queen, which we used to love…perfect for us and the pooch and cuddling.

    And then we got another dog!  Now, with 2 people and 2 dogs, we definitely need to upsize.  We’ll be moving after our wedding next year, and the first thing we’re getting is a new bed!

    We have a double, but I’m planning on moving up to a Queen sized bed as soon as we can afford it.  (That’s where any cash wedding presents are going.)  My quilt is already queen-sized.  We registered for a set of queen sized sheets to help minimize the other expenses.

    If we had my way , we’d have a cal king. But we want to make sure ti will fit in our bedroom when we buy a house so we’re making due with our queen size bed. I am a total bed/cover hog!

    I have a queen, but i’d love a king. Just a little more space for when you need it or want it. Plus my two cats like to crawl in bed with us.
